Wow. Finding these again made my day. Filmed while I worked at Gregg’s!
Some interesting reading for ya’ll.
I know that some of you readers like moustache bars . . . here’s a post on EcoVelo about two different ones and how the set-ups differ.
Grant Peterson used to be the Product Manager at Bridgestone, before moving on to start Rivendell. He’s a rather outspoken fellow with a lot of great and/or unique ideas about bikes. A lot of his opinions go against what you might be told at a local “main-stream” bikeshop and I think that that is important. Go to http://www.rivebike.com and click on the “READ” link to get yerself all lern’d up.
Andre Kivijarvi is a local rider and (apparently) a part of the ZLOG crew. He kills it on a track bike and he also kills it on a 20. Here’s a post of him sliding a HUGE double kinker on the north end of the University Bridge. Mad props, that’s a big rail. http://zlogblog.com/2011/04/andre-kivijarvi-double-pegs-28-stair-kink-rail/
I don’t know a lot about what’s going on in Japan right now with the nuclear reactors, mainly because nuclear physics is beyond me. Luckily BoingBoing has been posting a lot of educational and informative articles and posts in the last month, so I’ve been working on gettin’ lern’d up. Here’s one about the recent Fukushima upgrade to a Level 7 nuclear event. http://www.boingboing.net/2011/04/12/fukushima-upgraded-t.html
And finally, I’m a big Star Wars fan . . . I don’t approach the geekdom that many do, but I found this video simply awesome. http://devour.com/video/lightsaber-golf/
I went out on a nighttime shooting adventure the other night. The weather forecast called for rain and thunderstorms the next day, so I figured it was my last chance to shoot the UW cherry blossoms at night, before they were washed away. Some of these shots were taking using the black card technique.
