I've been sick, give me a break here.

Eye opening photoset showing the US in the 70's.  The Atlantic does it again.  We've made some progress, but for some unexplainable reason I didn't see any obese people in the entire set of 46 photos.  Now excuse me while I eat a few Big-Mac's.

MN CX Championships - now with video!

It's snowed for two-years in a row now for the MN CX championship race up in Crystal.  Last year saw much thicker snow, while this year brought the cold wind and icy snow that felt like needles hitting your eyes - very hard to see even with glasses.

Warming up, Hollywood style:

Or Lady Hollywood style:

Lots of action:

You have a permit for that fire, son?

Read about the race here, if you are so inclined.

Video one - beware of motion sickness:

Video dos, complete with drum corps and ass slapping action:

That's all I got.

rage against the machine

After the recent move, my clothing is mostly stuffed in various boxes laying around the house, but I think I chose a good combination for the ride in this morning.  It's important to keep an extra pair of gloves, hat, and socks in the backpack this time of year as you never know what's in store around the corner.

I never got too far into the cassette format, sure I made a mix tape or two, but I've always preferred to listed to entire albums; I made the jump from LP to CD back to LP and have no regrets.  This one should take a few of us back to the day, depending on how young you are inside:

In other news, what's the best way to break up a non-violent protest?  Why, violence and rage, of course!  With every 84-year old woman the police pepper spray, the movement gets stronger.

Veterans Day Tribute

I first posted this video of Pearn jumping his Suzuki three and a half years ago.  It's fitting we revisit this landmark jump on Veterans day.

Turn the volume up comrade, way up!

Also, the Bottle CX race on Sunday has no limits.  Not sure what that means, but it can't be bad.

Kenilworth Bottle CX - Sunday!

Our own good man Hurl himself has put on a bit of a race.  Be there.  Bring a bottle.  Hell, who is he kidding, bring a few!

Oak Indoor Bicycle Rack for sale

Buy this indoor bicycle rack, it's wood, oak even!  Like new, holds two bikes, but has an option for 4.  $100 takes it home.

It packs a punch

I missed Halloween this year, but after this photo was forwarded to me I believe this may be the first good reason I've seen to have a kid.  I'm thinking Beam and Camel straights would be my preference.

House hunting in Faridabad - not really

A brief video taken while traveling a few kilometers across a relatively low population dense region of Faridabad, never mind the comments by my colleague regarding the touchy subject of welfare later in the video.

Highlights include a shit-ton of cargo bikes, though none too loaded down here, a cargo bike being pushed by the left food of a scooter driver (left frame at about 0:45), slums, pollution, a few bicycle repair stations, and well, just take a look-see:

I saw a well worn older man on the side of the road wearing a t-shirt with the phrase "6-pack: coming soon" written across it along with fake ab muscles.  It's little things like this that allow you to laugh a bit under the circumstances.
