we just used them for our latest infomercial, and you should too

B Roll don't got B-Rose though, too specific.

winter word

Winter biking is the word. Check out Calhoun Cycle's site - K-mac's bike somehow made the front page; equipped with Panaracer T-serv's, showing you studs are not required for MPLS winter riding. Speaking of which, the Schwalbe Winter tires look pretty sweet; Hiawatha Jim has them as well, that is if you can figure out when his shop is open this time of year.

Karla is in town from Rome, she certainly isn't riding anything other than a set of ordinary summer slicks through this now icy mess; it can be done, experience and confidence helps quite a bit.

Who else is working this week? This seems to be the week that most countries give their employees the week off, based on our own experiences with-out-of-office email notices, not in the US though.

Stay warm.

mindless drivel, part 37

We hadn't visited Rustica when it was located more south, alongside Jack's, but we've been hitting it once a week for the fresh hard crusted bread and cookie selection since they relocated a short time ago. Bull Run coffee is now alongside; best espresso in town, and that's repeatable son. The location is a bit on the strip-mall-get-there-in-your-new-Volvo-SUV club, though the upper-middle class portion of the Assaultway™ butts up along the back side. No matter, give it a go.

Haven't posted any photos in a while. One of our avid readers spotted us departing headquarters for a bit of holiday shopping this past weekend. Keepin' it to the curb side on the tractor ride; yeah, it's cruise control equipped. Looking at the picture, Leon should probably raise his seat a bit.

No can stackers out there? Weak. Loaded the crap out of that trailer though.

Speaking of which, we ran into Hurl at the discount Liq'R today at lunch. The guy's got class, you gotta admit.

In other news, our bigoted gov'na has been busy digging to the bottom of the sanctorum bucket as he attempts to woo his base with fear, ignorance, and hatred. Good luck to ya, buddy.

12 pack stack

It's the simple things in life that make us happy. High Life cans are more difficult to balance than Bud, by the way.

Send us your best stack job; we love the competition.

4130's Hurl "Patagonia" Everstone

First of all, someone hijacked our Twitter information last night for about six hours; we apologize for that, all passwords and access rights have been re-secured - we were at headquarters all night, snug as a bug.

Secondly, if you didn't get a chance to make it to 4130's final performance last Sunday night, here's a short clip; a random person was invited from the crowd to give it their best, not too bad either.

the snow it falls, prepare for the ice

Heck of a show Sunday night with 4130 starting out for GCFS. Video to follow, stay tuned.

Acquired a bit of windburn the other night; remember to wear adequate windbreaker coverage. The park guy was watering the baseball diamond this morning for the ice skating rink, must be time for winter.

Tonight; there's a show at 7th St., Priestess opening for Early Man. Meet up in the alley at 7 for the usual pre-event fest.

Until then, just another week at the office.


Oh, remember that 30-dollar deal for the t-shirt and wool socks? The offer stands for the remainder of 2009, get over to Stroker Ace for the kit, call 'em to inquire about shipping.
