15% of the time I know what’s going on 25% of the time, at least 50% of the time.

Did most folks have a nice weekend? Did anyone get booed while at the theatre?

I hope so, and I will say on both counts, if you did, you deserved it.

Have I mentioned recently that the 2017 WSATU celebration is a mere 29 weeks away?

And relating to that, Sally, who might be considered by some to be Seattle’s WSATU impresario sent me this screen grab the other day, to which I can only say, ‘it was about goddamned time’;
duh
Of course the image that was found offensive was not one portraying sexism, bigotry, or animal cruelty, which the FB has apparently deemed appropriate, but it was (depending on who you ask) either something tamer, or something far, far worse;

There’s still no word which of Sally’s friends flagged the image in question, but upon further reflection, it could have been me.

In exciting AHTBM product news, it’s been six (or was it seven) years since we partnered with Voler and launched the very first branded kit, modeled here by the esteemed Friendly Paul;
fpinfirstkit
There have been a number of kits since, but I’ve always been fond of that first one.

So with that in mind, I went to updating, and reconfiguring the Schwarzmarket kit for 2017;
2017smkits
Naturally, as always occurs with the launch of a new kit, skinsuits, bibs, thermal jackets, vests, and so on will be made available. After the initial order window closes, it will then be just jerseys, bibs, and shorts, but we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.

The second I get the heads up regarding an order window, I’ll have the information here.

Year in and year out, I work hard here to keep things spiffed and fresh, and anyone who says I don’t can suckit.

Like a great man before me famously said, “Zeit Die Berliner Ballen Zu Machen“;
fred-the-baker-dunkin-donuts
Or if you will, “Time To Make The Donuts“.

I’ve been working tirelessly on a smattering of other branded goods as well, which will make most people shrug and walk away. However I fervently believe that there are somewhere between eight to fifteen people who when they see what I have in the pipe will run straight to the wig store for a purchase, just in order to have something to flip.

In news not relating to that or the next thing, some time ago Ian from Castelli Sent me this link holding the following map of ‘Alt Music History’;
dorothy-0113-alternative-love-72dpi-master-high
As I replied to the thread, I don’t quite get how Swans wound up between between The Deftones and Bikini Kill, or why Slint is between This Heat and Nine Inch Nails?

I concluded that particular observation by then simply calling bullshit on the entire shenanigan.

It’s still a pretty cool looking map though.

Now then- Because I’m eft to my own devices to scan and peruse and sift through piles of internet fodder looking for worthwhile content for this here website, which these days, for the most part, holds little more than maddening article after maddening article about Dumpster and his garbage heap cohorts, I’ve found that aside from the standard boring array of cyclocrossing hero shots, there have been pretty slim pickings.

Luckily I have one in my arsenal which never gets old;

I don’t remember where it came from, who shot it, or who it features, but it’s hands down one of the best bike race photos I’ve ever seen.

If anybody can feed it into their Photo Info Generator™ (P.I.G.), and give me the scoop on it, I’d be much obliged.

I want it pasted on my bedroom ceiling.

Let’s see… What else do I have on deck? Oh yes… In closing, it’s come to my attention that a person whose name I’m unable to pronounce has just recently released ‘skate-scented fragrance’;
derp
Firstly, please don’t ask why I was reading the Vogue website.

Secondly, not even out of to morbid curiosity did I bother reading this particular article. I would suspect at some point there in it was described as ‘a flowery combination of ass, sweat, burritos, and ass‘.

At least of that much, I’m 100% sure.

    Um… so I dragged-and-dropped that hairnet photo into a popular search engine (okay, the popular search engine), and it gave me this:

    Best guess for this image: redd foxx funeral casket

    So there you have it.

      When I first posted this image a couple of years ago, I concluded that Redd was a time traveler.

    Keep doing what you’re doing. Don’t let anyone remove your pictures. They don’t even get it.
