STNC x GLRY's EUROPEAN FINEST #CARMEET
Ace photog colognemitch of the car enthusiast Crew, TheLowlyGentlemen teamed up with the Snapmatic maestro Crew known as Tha Gallery for an auspicious Car Meet dubbed the "European FinEst #CarMeet" Event. A lot of the dynamic and sexy snaps and excellent event videos that followed reinforce Gallery leader Killa___Cali's philosophy that "Low" is indeed a lifestyle. Peruse a few exemplary Snaps below and an awesome event highlight reel above, and follow both of these Crews closely to stay apprised of their next gatherings.
AERIAL EXPLOITS OF THE ELITE PC PILOTS CREW
Commissioners and esteemed dogfighters h8mex666 and Liinex both represent the PC Pilots Crew's passion for after-burning through the open skies with video montages like h8mex's Helicopter Montage 1 and Liinex's GTA V PC Dogfights/Stunts shown above. PC Pilots assign special ranks to all recruits and encourage members to contribute clips to upcoming official videos as part of showing the world what PCPI is all about, citing at their pcpilots.blogspot page “We will have for example Top 5 Pilot plays, challenge videos and Crew montages planned.” Sub, follow or join up with these guys to enjoy some sick airborne stunting on the regular or to get involved yourself if you’re an aspiring flyboy or girl.
PC Pilot Crew Lieutenant Amocat1 pretty much tells all other pilots to "pick your poison" in this nighttime shot.
CREW ANNIVERSARY SPOTLIGHT: STUSH LIFE
Passionate Crew Commissioner, Lazarus4life answered the call in our last Crew Cut asking for Crews to share their collective personal stories and experiences - Lazarus reached out to tell us about his stylish Crew known as STUSH LIFE. STLI recently celebrated one year of in-game comradery and friendship, having been founded by mikeaveli000 who had become unhappy with the Crew that he was in and decided to strike out on his own and gather a tight-knit circle of friends who believed that all members should have a shared level of equality, input, and extend a spirit of inclusiveness to newcomers.
June 6th 2014 - Already friends from their previous Crew, the core members of the Stush Life Crew, POZZLA, davemillbrfc, callmenutty, downtime55555 and hiigzy gather to celebrate their bright new beginning.
Fast forward one year and we see that a majority of the Crew have since moved from the Xbox 360 and PS3 over to the PS4, have updated their Crew Emblem and colors to black & crimson and are rocking the very latest in fashion and high-end whips.
Over the course of a year, the fledgling Crew has grown quite a bit from 8 core members to a strong unit well over 150 deep – known for their knack for Snapmatic photography and for organizing structured TDM Crew battles, which have helped them earn a ranking amongst the top 100 TDM Crews worldwide on PS4.
Sitting pretty in the Buckingham Luxor Deluxe, POZZLA raises a crisp glass of Blêuter'd to STLI's bright future.
These days, Stush Life is packing Free Mode lobbies, mastering the finer points of Heists and share some of that knowledge during organized Crew meets. To honor their anniversary, Stush Life held a "Stush Spectacular Weekend" celebration on June 14th across both PlayStation platforms to thank each and every one of its members for a great year and to look forward to another one filled with "fun, games, laughs, jokes, big bangs & booms!”
