Murmurings from the depths.



As you may or may not have taken notice of in Wednesday’s post, some of the bicycle industry’s premere bottom dwellers and I are up to our old tricks with the forth year of the ‘Underbike Industry Mixer©‘ (I just came up with that). The first year of course initially celebrated Soulcraft Bicycles’ tenth year of business, and All Hail The Black Market’s launch;

The second year celebrated Ritte Van Vlaanderen’s first year at the show, All Hail The Black Market’s first year of business, Soulcraft’s eleventh anniversary, and a whole bunch of other stuff;

The third year I opted to welcome the then, newly-launched Paved Magazine into the fold, as well as to celebrate Soulcraft’s twelfth anniversary (I only just now realize I got that wrong on the flyer), Ritte’s second year at the show, AHTBM’s second year in business and our general level of handsomeness;

Though it might be early to strike on these matters, we have got a new loaf baking this year which surely won’t dissapoint;

I can’t yet disclose what we have in store, but I will say that it has taken quite a bit of effort to organize and though we are not entirely out of the woods yet and I still have a number of proverbial hoops to jump through, I think we’re on the downhill slide and gaining speed to infamy. One thing I can mention that in staying true to S.O.P.W.A.M.T.O.S. tradition, the wearing of wigs is encouraged.

Won’t you please take this as a cordial invitation to join us at our soirée?

It’s gonna be ugly.

And while we’re on the topic, have you seen the new OFF! video? No? Give yourself a couple minutes;

Now you have.

Speaking of aging punk rockers, I recently came across the following image on a tattoo site with the accompanying caption;

“It’s a tattoo to ward off evil spirits… this is what happened when the artist wiped off the excess ink. Creepy, right?”

Personally, if a likeness of Bob Roll came off on the towel while I was getting a tattoo to ward off evil spirits, I would know I was doing something right;

Though I guess it would only be legit if it looked more like this;

Always remember however, apparently warding off evil spirits is an entirely different process than warding off back hair.

Not having anything in the least to do with either Keith Morris’ dreadlock’s tenuous grasp upon the top of his head, or finding Bobke in a Rorschach Test, recently my friend Jody got in touch with me concerning a throwdown that is occurring today and tomorrow at Sheila Moon’s East Bay headquarters;

If you fancy donning your best whimsically colored and splotchy wares, roll through and say hello.

I’ll be there, looking like a slob.

Finally, in closing, from Hurl I received a transmission and an image that has been floating around for awhile, but because I think it’s pretty sweet, I’ll dust it off again for your consideration here;

“Stevil,

here’s something I believe your fellaheen readers can get behind. Hell, I know I would.

thugs n’ bitches,
-Hurl”

We may be bottom dwellers, but that doesn’t mean we don’t appreciate our beverages being chilled in style.

    I’ve had a lovely time at previous mixers, what with the riffraff and lowbrows and all, and I look forward to the next with the hope that there will be some binge bike riding to go along. What?

    Is that Dave Foley as Dale Entwerp hosting OFF!? Pretty dry satire, good punkrock music. Here’s some new stuff outta the KC area: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MQBOzVaRaIU

    That is definitely Dave Foley. “What the heck is that about?”

    Indeed.
