Cock Whisperer Part 2

Richard Lomeli and his Rally Cock (extended remix)

Top Shop!

We just got back from the 5th annual Top Shop weekend up at 3rd Lair in Minneapolis.
Good stuff, Maynard.

Day one.
Day two.
Day three.

Early Departure

Bailed out of Top Shop at 1:30am. Got home 'round 5.


Friend of GP and author of “The Answer Is Never: A Skateboarder’s History of the World.” Jocko Weyland has had a piece on fixed gear bikes published in the New York Times.

Check it out by clicking here.

While you're there, reading each and every one of Jocko's well-crafted words, click on the interactive feature "The Fixers." Another cool and diverse view on the phenomena of never coasting.

Flight Patterns

How Aaron Koblin sees where planes go.

Oh dude, designers are screwed

There's all this chit-chat about sustainable design whether it's products or just plain graphic design. Everyone is chiming in on it and it's a interesting topic. Here are some links to various posts about what I'm talking about. 1, 2.

The Ride

With the NuVinci™ CVP, you’ll never miss a gear
because there are no gears to miss. Instead, a set of spheres rotate around a central point to transfer torque from the pedals to the road. Tilting the spheres changes their contact diameters, permitting an infinite progression of speed ratios within its range.
The result is that you’re always pedaling at just the right speed. You can adjust the ratios continuously as the terrain changes. In motion or standing still. It’s as easy as adjusting the volume on a radio. So forget complicated, noisy internal hubs, hard-to-maintain
derailleur systems, dropped chains, missed gears, and jolts to your knees and lower back. Just enjoy The Ride.

So it goes

Kurt Vonnegut Jr., author of Slaughterhouse-Five, Breakfast of Champions, and Cat's Cradle died Wednesday from complications related to a recent head injury he sustained in a fall. He was 84.
Vonnegut was a student, a soldier, a newspaper reporter, a Saab salesman, a funny pessimist, and an angry comic. His last book A Man Without a Country was published in 2005 and is filled with the kind of off-the-cuff shit that connects him more solidly to our world of a zillion counter cultures than anyone before, and certainly anyone after.
And so it goes.

sad news. the passing of the dentist, Brian Allen.

I am sorry beyond words to inform everyone of the passing of my best friend, Brian Allen from this world on Sunday April 8, 2007. He meant as much to me as any thing and anyone on this Planet, and I am heavy hearted, grieving and alternately disblieving, just hoping to wake up soon and get out of this nightmare. —Daniel

Mumble Magazine is alive and kicking.
Skateboarding, art, radio, the word on the street, and a brand new web magazine.
Take some time to look around. It's very mardsandlefasle.
