Hop Curbs

Last night I got to hop curbs and it was glorious. This is a re-enactment from a few years ago when climates where different.

Best Of Cellphone Pics v32

We have juicy and wicked amounts of landscapes and vistas and views.

We have Action Bronsolini really really quick. We have a lil fire and painted waves and fake money and more views. We sincerely do hope you enjoy the pictorials, as they were literally hand selected for your viewing pleasure - rest assured and be aware, this is no coincidence they are up there.

 As the day unfolds this morning the sky is gorgeous, early springy blue. Temperature - brisk. The coffee is warm/hot, done to taste with care, the things are right and about to get righter, the breath is calm. 1 second of peace is worth everything. You hold on to it by walking 1/4 mph slower and noticing 1% more of things around you. Not an easy task for wild at mind but worth the effort. Get where you want to go, just do it.

Red Hook Criterium

Red Hook Criterium is happening this Saturday at 9pm. Oh it will be fun fun fun. Be there, on your bicycle, not to ride, just to watch - riding in that event would be silly crazy. I say you're prolly better off just drinkin a few beers and watching. Just sayin.

Why I'm Gonna Ride Today

As always, its things like these that make me want to meet up with my bicycle homies, hop curbs and ruin my shoes/tires with wicked skids everywhere.  Then get a pint or 3, and hop more curbs. Maybe even launch a set of stairs or something, who knows. Vids freshly stolen from Defgrip.

ENS 4231 Nissan Murano

That's the license plate. Look at this idiot. A garbage truck was blocking his path so the man goes on the sidewalk, running over bags of garbage, flower beds and pots and nearly hitting a few folks, me included. Lets hope the man learns his lesson about being a douchebag before killing someone, or himself (although the latter doesn't sound that bad). Relaaaax, slow your roll.

“Here is the formal statement I gave to Federal Police on 16 June 2012:
On a trip to visit family in Seoul in April, I was approached by a man and a woman who claimed to be North Korean defectors. They presented me with a DVD that recently came into their possession and asked me to translate it. They also asked me to post the completed film on the Internet so that it could reach a worldwide audience. I believed what I was told and an agreement was made to protect their identities (and mine).
Despite my concerns about what I was viewing when I returned home, I proceeded to translate and post the film on You Tube because of the film’s extraordinary content. I have now made public my belief that this film was never intended for a domestic audience in the DPRK. Instead, I believe that these people, who presented themselves as ‘defectors’ specifically targeted me because of my reputation as a translator and interpreter.
Furthermore, I now believe these people work for the DPRK. The fact that I have continued to translate and post the film in spite of this belief does not make me complicit in their intention to spread their ideology. I chose to keep posting this film because – regardless of who made it – I believe people should see it because of the issues it raises and I stand by my right to post it for people to share and discuss freely with each other.
I have translated this film, laid in the English voice over and subtitles, and on legal advice have blurred the identity of the presenter and/or blacked out certain elements.”
