Chewing chocolate.


With today’s post title I of course tip a hat to The Butthole Surfers’ ‘Chewing George Lucas’ Chocolate‘ from their non-hit album ‘Independant Worm Saloon’;
As long as we have that cued up, you might as well hit play as I can’t think of a more adequate soundtrack for today’s post anyway;

I mean that as sincerely as Gibby looks like he would mean it.

Hey, so you know how I’ve long been embraced, and in turn have been embraced by the Kona Bikecycles brand?

That is due in a large part to the fact that over the years I’ve not only come to adore the bikes they make, but have developed real-live relationships with the folks who work there.

One individual in particular who’s in Kona’s employ, and is a walking ray of damned sunshine is a human named Angi Weston. Not only is she one of the most solid individuals you could ever hope to meet, but she’s not too shabby on a bike, as proven by her recently released employee profile video edit;
We could all not only use a few more people like Angi in the world, but (at least as far as I’m concerned), could use a little more of her skills in our lives as well.

And while we’re on the topic of folks with skills- People who might tend to lurk around on the interwebs with some regularity are most likely now aware of the following clip featuring Bas Keep’s epic wall ride;

As insane as all of that is, I still find that I’m generally more partial to everything done by Ruben Alcantara in the following clip that over the years I’ve posted here a number of times previously;
Obviously none of Ruben’s feats are as big as Keep’s finale, (though Rube’s finale is next level insanity), in response to the latter, I still tend to be a little more jaw dropped in general.

Plus, it’s got that soundtrack by Comets On Fire, which I think is positively sublime.

Now, ordinarily I don’t stack videos on top of videos on top of videos in these posts, (videos on top of videos, maybe, but I never go three deep), but as I was assembling todays contents, the hits just kept on coming in that particular medium, and when the fodder comes, I would be a fool to turn it away.

It’s with that being said, that I then present the story of two roommates who probably get on one another’s nerves;
This is both the hero we need;

-as well as the hero we deserve.

Finally, from Paul down at Atomic Cycles I received a schedule of all the events he has planned for the coming year;

That right there is a whole lotta stuff to do.

So take your pen out and make a note of all of which you’d like to take part;

Them coaster brakes aren’t gonna repack themselves.

Likewise, as we conclude today’s effort here on the AHTBM web project, the chocolate won’t chew itself either.

    We build on the backs of those before us, Alcantara inspired Keep, thanks for the eye opener!

    I only turned off the Surfers for the guitar prank, and it was totally worth it. Well done.

    Ruben’s cleaner. Less obtrusive to the landscape.

    Stevil,

    I hadn’t thought about “Independent Worm Saloon” since my days of college. Young, no bald spot, drunk on $2 pitchers of High-Life, throwing darts on a week night with guys named Smitty, Big Menacing Rob, and Ginger. Ah, the days of short hangovers and long days of awesome…..

    Is that cake or did that lady just get done trying to keep up with your homegirl Angi?

    People abuse cameras daily, I don’t care what t-shirt is wearing who, that’s neglegent.

    You taught me the word, Stevil-, flotsam, minus the lady
