Soul Survivor

 

 

Trammell Logan is a SoulCycle instructor. He’s one of the most popular SoulCycle instructors. He’s one of my favorite SoulCycle instructors. Young, fit, and healthy, Trammell almost died in the back seat of an Uber 6 years ago. He suffered a pulmonary embolism that should have killed him. Rushed to the hospital and taken into surgery, they discovered massive blood clots in his lungs and heart. When he woke up the next morning, the doctors said it was a miracle he survived. Trammell’s life was in fact saved that day thanks to one of his dedicated riders.

A few weeks ago on a Saturday morning I went to ride Trammell’s class. He was celebrating his 10th anniversary as a SoulCycle instructor. But it was a celebration of his life as well. Sitting in the front row was Dr. Roopa Kohli-Seth, MD, Director of the Institute For Critical Care Medicine at Mount Sinai. He acknowledged and thanked her for putting together the team that saved his life that day. Trammell joked that he didn’t really know her that well at the time, other than the fact she took his class regularly, and was always asking him to turn on the fans.

Roopa saved his life not just once but twice. Trammell suffered a stroke 2 years later.

I knew bits and pieces of all these events, but on that 10th anniversary I asked if he’d share the full story from start to finish, and how these life-altering, death-defying experiences have changed him as a man and as an instructor. Read More

Now on view through September 2024 at the Aalto2 Museum Centre in Jyväskylä, Finland is The Pool – The Origin of Pool Skateboarding, a series of four exhibitions that explore the pool design of legendary Finnish architect Alvar Aalto, and its intersection with international skateboarding culture, as well as rap and hip-hop culture.

Three exhibitions focus on skateboarding, and the theme of the kidney-shaped design of the swimming pool at Aalto’s Villa Mairea that influenced Southern California pool design and skateboard culture. The fourth exhibition delves into the history of Finnish rap and the significant role of Central Finland in shaping the nation’s hip-hop culture.

Aalto2 Museum Centre is a unique meeting place of architecture, design and cultural heritage in the heart of Central Finland, and fulfills Alvar Aalto’s desire to create a forum to bring together a variety of art forms. It combines two buildings designed by Aalto: the Museum of Central Finland and the Alvar Aalto Museum. Read More

The Bikeriders

 

 

Danny Lyon is highly regarded as one of the most influential documentary photographers of the last five decades. Paralleling the style of 1960s “New Journalism” made famous by writers such as Joan Didion, Hunter S. Thompson, and Tom Wolfe, Lyon is known for immersing himself in the communities of the subjects he photographs. One of those was the Chicago Outlaws Motorcycle Clubthe with whom he spent two years on the road. The resulting photographic series and book, The Bikeriders, is the inspiration for a new feature film of the same title opening this summer.

First published in 1968, The Bikeriders, documents the lives and journeys of the Chicago Outlaws Motorcycle Club in photographs and interviews from 1963 to 1967. Lyon was a motorcycle rider himself, and when he went to a meeting of the Outlaws in a bar, one of them asked him to join the club. Authentic and personal, Lyon’s depiction of the outliers of society portrays a gritty but humanistic view that contrasts from the commercialized image of America at the time. Read More
