Director Martin Scorcese lent his gangster expertise to Jackson's "Bad" video. Scorcese remembers, "Michael Jackson was extraordinary. When we worked together ... I was in awe of his absolute mastery of movement on the one hand, and of the music on the other. Every step he took was absolutely precise and fluid at the same time. It was like watching quicksilver in motion. He was wonderful to work with, an absolute professional at all times ... a true artist. It will
be a while before I can get used to the idea that he's no longer with us."

My friend Mike and I were talking recently about how we are both better at jumping our bikes at age 36 than we were at 14. This is all in part due to the mtn bike trails we have been priviledged to ride around our town. Now with the creation of some new xc trails with names like Funner and Old Dirty Pirate (featured below) it is time to step up my game once again. The 2nd video is the latest feature on the ODP, I will not be trying any time soon.

After a short delay it's back on. Stereo honored me by making 2 boards and shirt with my photos on them. Deluxe is hosting the party at their shop and Adidas will be providing a copy of their new Europe team video, with a sick Dennis Busenitz part. Many thanks to Stereo for their years of support.

I never thought my 2 1/2 year old daughter would bring me street cred at Burnside amongst the hardcore locals, but she did. Rarely do I go to Portland without my skate, but it seems like my wheels don't hit the ground at Burnside unless it's 8AM or really sunny. Two rare occurrences. Last weekend kw's dad, molly and me went to view a drizzly Friday night session, where guys were absolutely killing it. Amongst the throng of Milwaukee's Best sippers, perched atop grandpa's shoulders, little old molly became the crowd favorite with her enthusiastic cheers and claps. While asking me, "did you see those boys skateboarding papa"? "Yes I did honey... yes I did".

I just moved to new york city - a dream of mine since i was a kid. Wondering if any Good Problem-ers live up in this wonderland? Anyone down for a Brooklyn Ale and a visit to the Bike Film Fest? Anyone wanna point me in the direction of the nearest employment? I'd love to hear meet you in real life.
holla if ya hear me-

"We are in The Coffee House in Lincoln, Nebraska, in our kit. It’s 6:30 am and still dark outside.
"It’s also just begun to rain — harder."
Read the rest of Daniel Wakefield Pasley's road journal from Rapha's Lincoln-to-Ponca ride — complete with a short film and photos of our wet-then-dry-then-very-long day — at the Rapha web site.

Pretty great couple of weeks for bicycle fun. First the 1st ever Bend Bike Film Fest was held and I was fortunate enough to have a short film included. Then the fourth annual Kegerator Cruiser Crawl, 5 stops and a potluck finish. Then I took my little girl to see a little bit of a mtn bike race, The Picketts Charge. At a place that is 8 or 9 miles from the start deep in the woods, but the trail junction is really close to a paved road. There were a few out of town riders surprised to see us.
