Flippin' Our Shades: Joe Stakun

Hubba hubba. We see a lot of rad guys around Philly. Usually we just flip our shades at 'em, all Diamond Dave-style to let 'em know that we are feelin' it. Well, we decided that we should spotlight our faves and let other girls know about them too. We know, we're nice like that. So, for our first Shade Flipper, we think that it's fitting to profile Joe Stakun. We're pretty sure if you checked his diet, he must eat 100% awesome things because they say you are what you eat and this guy is totally awesome. Did that even make sense?

When not making videos and movies, he can be found zipping around town on his bike. In fact, he just released his first feature length documentary about the BMX bike culture called I Love My Bicycle. It also helps that he's incredibly handsome. That's kind of a big part of being a Shades Flipper. Let's meet the man behind the camera.
SK: So, Joe, what have you been up to?
Ummm. I am on the tail end of a feature length documentary I've been making for the past two and a half years. It just premiered in NYC and Philadelphia. At this point, I'm looking around for distro and fine tuning the film. Hopefully it will be out on DVD before 2010. After that, I'm just going to take it easy and go back to doing more music videos.

SK: What bums you out that girls do?
Hmmm. I'm not a big fan of make-up and when girls dress up fancy every time they leave the house.

SK: What do you love that girls do?
When they are funny, cute, original, and talented.

SK: What would you wear on a first date?
Probably just jeans and a t-shirt or flannel. I'm not sure the typical first date really exists.

SK: What would you put on a mix tape for a girl that you liked?
Depends on the girl.

SK: Tell us a secret.
No secrets here.

SK: Oh man, not even one?
I don't have any secrets; I'm a pretty open book for the most part. Is this photo alright? It's quite a metro posture.

SK: Yup, this photo is just great.
