Trans­porta­tion

I am devel­op­ing a the­ory that green bikes are always chal­leng­ing. Take for exam­ple this ‘83 R80ST bob­ber. It is fas­ci­nat­ing; in a train wreck of a gas tank sort of way. Points for brav­ery though.

This Tiger 100 fea­tured at Quail is the def­i­n­i­tion of col­lectible. A one-off pro­duced in 1940 for Rody Roden­burg. Never restored and doc­u­mented all ways to hell. This one should be parked in the liv­ing room.

Another bike seen at Quail. The Mule Motor­cy­cles “Street­mas­ter” a Bon­neville based street tracker. Build details and plans for a lim­ited pro­duc­tion run. 70+ hp in 300 pounds. Oh my,

Soci­ety and Culture

The LA Times pro­vides a brief look inside Dis­ney­land after hours. 600 busy peo­ple make the Magic King­dom sparkling new every night.

All that eco-responsible toi­let paper you buy? You might want to start hord­ing. Too much recy­cled paper in the world means too lit­tle high qual­ity paper for mak­ing that cushy bum stuff.

Art, Images, and Design

Design­ers are now social engi­neers and cre­ators of solu­tions. At Cal­i­for­nia Col­lege of Arts the design stu­dents were given a brief to design prod­ucts that fall (roughly) into the cat­e­gory of health and fit­ness. Some are prag­mat­i­cal, some are silly, and few are out right good. Like the smack down dolls of Sam Free­man and the eas­ier to grip wine glass of Aaron McKenzie.

I love shoes. I have tons of friends who love choco­late. I think I’ve found the per­fect gift for all occa­sions . Some­thing that clearly reflects my pas­sion and their crav­ing. What could be bet­ter than choco­late shoes?

Hid­den behind the easy, pas­tel  japan-kitsch there is some­thing painfully hon­est in Zain7’s depic­tions of ado­les­cence.
