Dinosaur Jr.

Last night the Lady of the house put on Martin +Me for the evening of cooking/dinner music. I hadn't listened to this album in a while and it's truly one my favorites. J Mascis live, angry on a stool with an acoustic guitar belting out some of the great Dinosaur Jr tunes is great stuff.
If your a D.Jr fan you need this.

BMW Skate

I think these things went for somewhere in the $500 range. Cool, but not that cool.

Sema Show

I've never been and I want to go.
Does anyone have a line on a couple badges? I'd be grateful for any help.

Parked Cars will get you too.


I just found out an old co-worker, shoe designer, comedian & all around good dude Sinisa Egelja has passed.
Sin was responsible for much of Airwalk footwear's success.
I trust your in a better place my friend.

SR Club of Sweden

Sunday Riding

I rode my SR500 to the post office last week, it had been sitting for a week or so and crap in the tank had made its way to the carb and the floats were sticking, gas was running everywhere. I did all the necessary dis assembly and cleaning, put it all back together fueled up with fresh and went for a test ride.
2 1/2 - 3 hours and two tanks later I was pulling back in the garage.
It was so nice out, I decided to go exploring. I headed out to the inland foot hills, back to the coast, down the coast, back up PCH and finally home.
I really need to seal that tank.

The 2nd Annual McCormack Chili Cookoff

This past Saturday Pat & his family hosted their annual chili cook off and since competitive cooking is completely foreign to me I tend to just wing it.
This year I did about 20 minuets of interweb research and came to the conclusion most all chili has the same base ingredients. So I went with the original no bean cowboy style, bought as much fresh ingredients as possible, Frances was my sous-chef and covered all the chopping duties as I mixed & wrote it all down, somehow out of 21 entrees we won the Judges Choice.
If you give it a go let me know how it works out.
Big thanks to Pat & Nancy for a great time.

Remember This Guy?

Remember back in July when this guy threatened us over some bullshit international copyrights on photos that I had posted?
No? Well here's the link to refresh your memory.
Now that we all remember, below is a new email I received this morning from the same dude?
What I did white out in todays first email was a link to some video of him or his buddy or something that I refuse to promote just by posting it.
We have a couple of mutual friends who tell me he's actually a nice guy, even though his spelling is atrocious???
Random & odd most definitely.
As usual click image to enlarge

Crazy Orange

I'd like to work on something this week.

Pastrana vs Block - game of S.U.C.K (NitroCircus Season 2 EP8)

So Frances & I are walking around Chelsea Market in Manhattan and who do we run into, Ken & Lucy Block grabbing some lunch with their kids.
Ken was between rallies and they'd decided to stay in NYC. It was nice to catch up we hadn't seen them in a while.
Random though?

An Afternoon With FlatIron Mike.

So I'm in New York for a wedding and figured that's all I'd be doing on this trip, I was wrong.
I had Friday free so FlatIron Mike picked me up, gave me the local tour, checked out his bikes and projects, Then headed out for some lunch.
First stop The Colony Grill in Stamford CT. The Colony makes amazing hot oil pizza so we had a couple hot/sweet pepper pies with a few pitchers.
After the colony we headed over to the local Eagles club, signed the books, shot some pool and a few more beers. I hadn't seen Mike since EDR2 in 07 and it was great to catch up and being back in couple of a real drinking bars with some history, patron support & good locals made me miss living back east.
Thanks Mike for one of the best afternoons I've had in a while.

Art of Rebellion NYC.

Friday evening Walter called & hooked me up to get down to HD's art show deal. I met up with him & Cool Beans Chris,
Scout was at the door and that's when the fun began.
We ended up hanging with Jeff & Chris from Street Chopper,
PBR tall boys were flowing like the Hudson.
Once the show wound down we met up with FMA Grant and Harpoon at the
Trailer Park Bar & Grill.
Where I didn't last very long and had to get back to the hotel in hopes of being in some sort of decent shape for the wedding the next day.
At this point in the night my vision was similar to this photo.

Owen Nieder is one of those friends that when he does something it's usually at full throttle, regardless of the consequences & all in the name of fun. If it works out he's amped and immediately ready to give it a go again. If it doesn't, well maybe the next time he'll back it off a little.
After quite a long hiatus Owens back on the tarmac & no doubt ringing out that 748.
Rubber side down please.
