Hey kids! The next that you get all pouty about “the corporations” coopting your “scene”, as if yours is the first subculture to have experienced such a usurpation; remember the Beats.
this blog is all class (via pure-evil)
The idea of just “cruising” on a bike is alien to me. I need to go fast, and you know what makes you slower? Smoking. So actually no, this guy is a goof and I can’t support it. Shut it down!
hands up everyone who’s tried this (via Cool bikes and cool people)
New rule; if a cyclist is breaking the posted speed limit by at least 8km/h, they can take the whole lane. Especially where the margins of the pavement get really sketchy.
Strava is killing me. I understand that pretty much half of the professional road cyclists in Canada live in my township, that they own bikes that are better equipped and weigh roughly a quarter of what mine does and that most probably have a genetic advantage over me, but that doesn’t stop me from trying to stomp the KOMs that I see on my area map.
Right now my legs are absolutely killing me. I can barely walk up a decent flight of stairs, because my muscles are so sore. I’m convinced that if got my hands on a better bike that I’d be putting some of these pros to shame, but I don’t let that discourage me from attempting that on my Record. Such is the delusion of so called gamification.
Aside from wishing for a new bike that I can’t possibly afford or justify the cost of, I also need to get over my fear of being hit from behind by sociopaths in their Benzes, doing 120km in 80km zones, passing me at only about a foot of clearance, because that’s holding me back more than anything. I end up giving only part effort once I hear the distinct sound of an erratic driver approaching me from behind. What’s the opposite of killer instinct?
Menswear Trends from Vegas: Tennis Whites
So basically the new trend in menswear is the stuff that I wore in my first year of university — lame.
"As a former actual curator, of like, actual art and whatnot, I think I’m fairly well positioned to say that you folks with your blog and your Tumblr and your whatever are not actually engaged in a practice of curation. Call it what you like: aggregating? Blogging? Choosing? Copyright infringing sometimes? But it’s not actually curation, or anything like it."
