Merry New Year

Ball Drop

Outside of conversations directly relating to sports...

This is the one time of year when people can go around talking about watching balls.

Checking out the ball drop.

People want to get there early, so they can get closer to the balls.

Getting right up in there, for the ball drop.

The ball drop.

Dropping the ball.

Watching Dick Clark and the balls from around the world.

Watching Dick and the balls.

Counting down the seconds.

The ball drop.


I would bet good money that most of you are going to be checking out some balls tonight.

I am mentioning it so that later when you are scoping out those balls...

You think of me.

Thursday Thumbs

The year in review, Pretty Not Good edition.

Well, some of it sucked...
But not all of it, I guess.
I think I had some fun?

The End

Is near...

So, you know, tell folks you love them.
Turn off the TV.
Do nice things for people.
Help old ladies with stuff.
Listen to the stories old guys tell.
Take your dog on a long walk.
Ride a bike.
Play catch with a kid.

Oh, wait...

For some reason I was thinking it was almost 2012...
You know, the end of the world Aztec bit.

It's only 2011.
What was I thinking?

So, yeah, just go back to doing all of that asshole bullshit you usually do...

Disregard all that stuff I said before.

It's not like the world is going to end in a few days, after all.

Two Wheels Tuesday

You know what really draws my to motorcycles?

Barbara Streisand...

Monday, December 27, 2010

Well, Is It?


I haven't heard from that side of the continent, for a while....

And Aquaman would be the guy to trust...
If you trust fish talking freaks as a sound source of information.

Better than MSNBC, I guess...

Fan Mail Friday

I get this kinda shit all the time...

The DC-3

The venerable DC-3 turns seventy five today...

One of my more more absurd aspirations is to have my own.

Cars, motorcycles...why not an airplane?

Sure, when selecting a dream airplane, there are racier options...
But for me, the DC-3 seems a lot more cool than some swoopy jet or something.

Thursday, December 16, 2010


Look at this.

I have other stuff I should be doing...

Sweet Van

I keep telling you, custom vans are coming up...

The next big thing.

I am just posting this sweet custom van, so that when people try to question my cool-cred I can say "check it..."

I am on the tip.


Yeah, Gator...

You probably haven't thought about him since that documentary on his fucked up shit.

Two Wheels Tuesday

What's this?

Did the Crazy German get a magazine cover?

I have a hard time telling...

Those Germans all look the same to me.

No Pickles

No, this man does not want a pickle.

He only wishes to ride around on his motorcycle...

(If you dig through the music tags, you could actually here the song.)

Recommended Reading

Maybe save it for after the holidays...


You probably do not need to see this.

Alternately, this may be exactly what you need to see.

Either way, I would guess that you will watch it at least twice...

It is clear...

Go around.

Eleven Years

KVC and I made things legal and official eleven years ago, today...

Elvis sang this song at our wedding.

KVC is awesome...

Turn It Up


Because KVC and I have been married for eleven years.

Oh shit...



This guy gets a few Rodney Mullen points...

Sunday Drive

The mid-sixties Chevrolet Impala is perhaps the most perfect vehicle for Sunday drives.

You don't see enough murals of picnic tables in front of snow covered mountain landscapes on the big rigs these days...

It is a shame.

Friday, November 26, 2010


So, it is pretty rare that I am so direct in pointing out my influences on any given project...

But this bike happened to be featured today on another site today.

I thought I would share...

I have mentioned before, the newer Sportsters have a lot of potential to be something cool.
This is a case in point...

It is a bit older than what I am starting with, but demonstrates what I am taking about.
Fairly simple modifications to this one, but it does it well...

No glitter, no bullshit...

I am not going to copy what Dan Collins has done with this here machine.
It has been in my head, since before I purchased mine, however.

I need to work around the requirements of this state I live in...
They require signals, idiot lights and whole list of other stuff, to get through their inspection process.
Stuff I will have to work around, while trying to get to cool...

Some things, like super narrow bars for lane-splitting are less relevant to me.
Technically, that is illegal here...and a bit absurd, if your footpegs or ass is wider than your handlebars.

But here it is.
Some of my inspiration...

I am shooting for an East Coast version of this.
It'll have the stuff to make it less than a fix-it ticket magnet...
Fenders and cast wheels, to deal with crap roads here.
I want to keep some suspension travel, for the same reasons and for two-up riding...

Simple, easy, clean.

All business...

Thanksgiving Thursday

Well, the turkey is nearly done and the pies are baking...

I have been up since about 4AM, polishing the family silver and making preparations for a huge feast.

I made four different kinds of stuffing, so everybody can have their favorite.

Plenty of vegetarian options, so that nobody is left out...

There is a huge cheese board in the living room, along with a decanter of wine and a listing of all of the football games available...along with some homemade caramel corn and cookies, for snacking.

Yeah, I am totally kidding...

I think I would be good with a frozen pizza and a few beers today.

Not that I don't have a lot of things to be thankful for.
But that I feel lucky for the family and friends I have...
And that is just enough.

Happy Thanksgiving.

And no, I am not making a frozen pizza today.
Not yet, anyway...

Badger Reminder

Just a polite reminder that we are getting into the season when badgers start running around in desperate packs of snarling death...

I know, it seems like just a few weeks ago that our little badger buddies were getting drunk off of the various rotting fruits they had scavenged...stumbling around our yards, before passing out.

Well, the buzz has worn off, folks.

Now, they are bitter and hungover...and could really go for a cup of coffee and perhaps a slice of pizza...and the badger swarms will do anything to get it.

They will gnaw through anything, just to get a glass of cold water and maybe a piece of toast...your doors won't hold them back.

It is better to just leave them open and hide in your bathtub, preferably under a feces coated tarpaulin...hung over packs of vicious badgers hate poo.

Really. How could I not post this?

Meatballs Monday

I don't think fans of cinema really recognize the powerful performance delivered by Bill Murray in this film...

Really gripping portrayal of camp counselor Tripper Harrison.

He helps kids, leads a rag-tag bunch to near victory and leaves us with words to live by...

"It just doesn't matter."

Holiday Decorating

Man, the X-mas crap is already raining down, huh?
The jingle music at the grocery store, in the cabs...
Special displays in stores and what not.

I am not sure I am ready for it, but it upon me anyways...

So, I guess I had better get into the goddamned spirit.

Nothing make shit seem festive in the same way that some blinking lights and some Slayer does...

Get in the spirit.

Fuck yeah.

Medical Attention

Yeah, I definitely think you should maybe have a doctor check that out...

Of course, you are probably not going to find a doctor with that sort of expertise, right now...

So, lets go ahead and order some drinks.

Sunday Drive

One of the measures in the quality of a Sunday drive is whether or not you found the end of the road...

Saturday, November 20, 2010


I suppose that you thought I maintain my lithe and fit physique thanks to my obviously superior genetic composition...

Sure, that is a contributing factor to my svelte masculine form.

Even hearty, buff men like myself need to think about healthy living and our diet.

I follow the Drinking Man's Diet, which involves not eating much and drinking a lot.

Hey, it worked for Dean Martin...


I figured you would be into a song featuring unicorns...

You strike me as the sort who would like unicorns.
No judgement from me, just an observation...
