The new band

Rumor has it that I might be heading to the basement to drink beer and lay down some tracks for the new band, since I have the four track, a cassette, a microphone, and a fridge full of delicious beer for the drinking. I sure hope that I like Summit, because that is what I will be drinking. Is today a Pale Ale day? Perhaps Hefe Weisen?

Meet the new boss

We call him him “New Gabe.” I was listening to mp3s, but then he told me that he had found out the name of the song that I remembered from Radio K back in the day: “Make Me a Sandwich” by TS/MattiX, probably off of the Mechanical Man E.P. released on Deviant Subculture. Zach said that he would use his secret former-DJ powers to see if he could get more info for me so that I could acquire that song for my own nefarious uses. After that, I put on Radio K, and Zach told me to turn it off because his speakers were better, so he put it on. Gabe should be gone every day.

Another bike note

Going up the hill in front of the house felt like flying. I feel like I could use a taller top gear like I had on the black devil bike that would chant “faster faster” as I chased cars in the few flat parts of Stillwater in 1991. I’m lucky that I never died, what with the helmetless riding and all. I think that bike was stolen or I just broke too many teeth off of the chainring. Maybe both. I hope so, bike stealing jerks — let’s see you sell my $5 bike that my dad bought in some random dude’s back yard. That bike didn’t shift properly either.

This isn’t really bike related, but I’m actually only spending $25 a month on gas plus $70 on parking. That makes the bike-related savings even slimmer if I don’t ditch the green car (another $50 per month if I do). Oh yeah, that is indeed bike related.

There is a wonder called the U Pass which is like unlimited bus riding for a semester for like $90. $70? That right there is the ultimate savings, so that is probably what I will do, except that I can’t afford it right now. HAHAHA I LOVE YOU UNIVERSITY AUTOMATED PROCESSES. Jerks. GIVE ME THE MONEY THAT WAS LOANED TO ME A MONTH AND A HALF AGO.

Time to do homework. I’m not even slightly tired.

I think that the heat is starting to break. That is the only explanation that I can come up with for my unprovoked lawn mowing and bike tuneup-ing. Tuning up. One of the spokes is broken, but I got a bunch of gunk out of the chain, straightened out the mounting of the rear wheel, and put air in the tires. I rode in circles a little bit, but I was too lazy to go in and get my helmet so I could ride around the neighborhood.

Stop searching for the doodlebops!

Fine, if you’re going to search, I will have something for you: DeeDee without her makeup.



Also: a funny epinion about the show:

Just as a reminder, Noah LOVES this show. I lose brain cells when I watch it, so it’s a bit like drinking, only without the sticky feeling later.

If you missed the earlier post, it is here:

Oh lord I am a giant nerd and I can’t sleep. I’m wide awake. I think that I drank too much coffee and too late. Sonofa.

I have to say I’m a great fan of triangles

Paul came over and we idled the Team Kickass Drunk Wagon, but didn’t drive it anywhere. (That’s a gentle metaphor, there is no wagon and if we were drunk we wouldn’t have driven it, yo) There was a tiny bit of discussion of w3junkies, but the rest of the time we just hung out on the deck and talked about girls. He did mention that he and six of his friends were renting two attached four bedroom duplexes (a split 8 bedroom house), and that there was one bedroom free. The idea was strangely appealing - being part of a big drinky party house. But no, I’d be thirty by the time I would move in, and who wants to live in a party house at 30? I mean, besides me. MMmm… beer.

The Venture Brothers: “Are You There God? It’s Me, Dean” equals funny.

Hey, there is a free clip from the pilot online: You have to defile a mummy completely. That clip is of poor quality but excellent humor.

Boing Boing: Mapping Hacks

Boing Boing: Mapping Hacks

Hey, I wonder if Stan can get me this book for free, since he has the O’Reilly connection.

I never thought that I was a mapping nerd until I started fooling around with the gallery developer map, which seems like my largest contribution outside of the migration module.

Uh, nevermind. It’s way too hot upstairs. I’m going back to the air conditioned wonderland of the kitchen, where there may also be food.

City Pages - Boys in the Corner

City Pages - Boys in the Corner

This article was mentioned on two blogs that I haphazardly read. You might have missed it like I did. I don’t know if I agree, but sometimes funny is funny, and in this case, his appraisal of Wes Anderson made me laugh.

(remember that I loved the Life Aquatic, even though it is indeed flawed)

Bike Stuff

Thanks to the blog of a friend of a random stranger (well, she sent me a message on the personals, then I googled her, and her blog was interesting enough to keep reading, but she never answered my messages - for shame!) I have been thinking about revising my expensive and sweaty commuting strategy into a completely different expensive and sweaty commuting strategy. I drove down to the hub coop because some part of me assumed that coop employees would sneer less at my goober-from-Iowa persona that I wear when shopping for things. I met a nice bearded gentleman named Michael who overestimated the length of my legs while showing me the one single used bike that fell into my vague recommendations. Then he showed me the dreamy Bianchi Volpe and Bianchi Castro Valley bikes.

^_^ *melt* <3 <3 <3

Uh, sorry about that.
