Bear Annihilator: Killer Boards, Bikes and ... Yep, Bears
The artists behind Bear Annihilator, a local apparel brand, say they're dedicated to producing the "highest quality mutant, robotic, over-sized and irate-bear related clothing in the world." We're just happy they blog about it, too.

Always wanted to see a base jumper on fire, the latest mash-up video of a popular tune or just a ton of killer bear cartoon eye candy? These guys have it all in one place.

Perhaps our favorite part of the blog are the featured pieces on street sports. Because much of their apparel is made for skaters and bike fanatics, they also post a ton of skate videos and bike pictures.
