Downtown


Imagine going to this place in the 50's and 60's. Rum drinks, music and bad decor pretty great. It is now a Mexican food restaurant...

A Perfect Knuckle


From the Wild Angels

Thinking, A Novel Idea



Gleaming the Cube


Sitting here doing homework; will I ever finish these TPE's? Luckily I found one of my favorite movies on YouTube. If you haven't seen it take the time, you even see a very young Tony Hawk. Pro-skaters Mike McGill does the vert sections and Rodney Mullen does the flatland stunt doubles for Christian Slater. Fun times.

Autocult


From the makers of Garage (My favorite magazine of all time, maybe behind old issues of National Geographic) comes a new internal combustion magazine. The lay out, font and photography is better than ever. I felt I better support this as I was really bummed when Garage was taken over, then run into the ground. I wish them luck and for you collectors the premiere issue is out now.

P.S. David the cover comes on extra heavy card stock so you don't have to buy two because it is less likely to crease.

Veterans Day


- When did Veterans Day start?
In 1954, President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed the first Veterans Day proclamation calling on the U.S. to honor the veterans of all wars.

- Why is Veterans Day on November 11?
November 11th is the date on which the Allied Powers signed the cease-fire agreement with Germany ending World War I.

- Why does the parade start at 11:11 a.m.?
The ceasefire agreement was signed at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918, after four years of war

- What is the difference between Veterans Day and Memorial Day?
Many people confuse Memorial Day and Veterans Day. Memorial Day is a day for remembering and honoring military personnel who died in the service of their country, particularly those who died in battle or as a result of wounds sustained in battle. While those who died are also remembered, Veterans Day is the day set aside to thank and honor all those who served honorably in the military - in wartime or peacetime. In fact, Veterans Day is largely intended to thank living veterans for their service, to acknowledge that their contributions to our national security are appreciated. Veterans day is not only for those who died, but also those who have sacrificed and done their duty for this nation.

Wow, This Made My Day


Jeff Wright put this up over on COC today and it floored me. Wheeling, while jockey shifting, like its "no thing." Impressive, and makes we want to get on my bike now.
