Just in case any of you thinks that this gig is all about spending the day looking at pretty bikes and enjoying adult beverages. I’d like to give you a little look into the problems of shiny hunting. Scott over at Pipeburn shares a handful of pictures that he’s been hanging onto because he doesn’t have enough info to post them. (And his ace readers get the goods for him on two out four — go readers!) A Guzzi, 2 BMWs and a Sportster.
I’m undecided about this custom bike with a Buell motor. The frame is unique enough to pull in my eye and the execution is top-notch. But hey the motor’s gonna have to be changed. The spud.
Wrong, wrong, wrong. Is that a Tony Kart chassis?
Art, Images, and Design
Yuko got to do a cover illo for the NYT Review of Books. The Keith Richards cover. Wow.
Etch-a-Sketch, sports figures. ’nuff said. (Making of videos too.)
30 year-old Jung-Yeon Min paints people in the everyday world with the surreal landscape of the human soul on the edge of breaking through.(NSFW — artistic nudes)
Animation and CGI

This just makes me happy. I hope it makes you happy too. Betty Boop does the hula. Bamboo Isle. If you want the full meal deal (with some fab Hawaiian music) and have 8 minutes you can watch the low-res version of the complete film here. Is Betty SFW?
sledding and hot chocolate today?
