I first posted the above video a year or two ago, and promptly lost track of it. Fortunately it finally made its way home so that I can post it again.
Working with the internet is an interesting process. Obviously coming from a visual arts background, I look at each post that I assemble similarly to a painting, and the content that I draw from around the web as the medium with which I’m working.
So with this as an analogy, imagine sitting in front of a partially finished painting, your brushes at the ready, and you pallet being a thousand miles wide, covered with every color and hue imaginable, but you’re looking for a very specific one.
Maybe in some cases, it’s even a color that you mixed especially for a previous project.
I’m getting into this because aside from the above video, for days I have been on the hunt for a specific website that seems to have vanished entirely.
If I remember correctly, it was a Blogger platform consisting of nothing but the most random, amazing and original imagery I’ve ever seen.
You might remember this shot I found there;
And though I never posted it, this was another one that came from the site;
And of course this one;
It was the kind of site that I want to be when I grow up. Anyway, it seems to be gone with the wind, and as has been said many times before, if you love something, set it free. If it comes back to you, it’s yours. If it doesn’t, hunt it down and kill it.
Luckily though, all of these years later, Noah got ahold of me with news that Lord Thundercock is alive, well, and living the dream;
In other news of the whirld that has nothing to do with thunder or cocks, this forthcoming event is one that folks in, under, and around the Bay Area will be sure to want in on;
Like with most organized events these last couple of years, I would very much like to attend, but that would entail leaving the safety of my closet and with every day that passes, the less likely that becomes.
It’s dark and warm in here and I like the way I smell.
Now from Logan, I have one for the ‘what could possibly go wrong?’ file;
“A fool and the skin on his forehead are soon parted.”
Now in closing, a final bit of news regarding some official Bizniz-
I know I mentioned this previously, but as of today I have new news. As I said on Wednesday, I have taken the preliminary steps in getting our very own AHTBM kits made by the good people at Voler Clothing.
They are absolutely bending over backwards for me, and making adjustments to their usual minimums because I did such a bang up job of sweet talking them at Interbike this year.
I can really pour on the honey when I want to, and for that meeting I did so in gallons.
So to recap, this is the kit;
As far as sizing goes, just to ensure you are getting what you want, and because each company has their own versions of small, medium, large and so on, if you are unfamiliar with how Voler sizes their clothing, check around, and if you can, actually try some on at a friend’s house, your LBS, or wherever you know you can find their products. This way you will be guaranteed to have the perfect size and cut for your body.
Now, please read the following information C A R E F U L L Y.
The updated and official information on the kits is as follows;
Short sleeved club cut jersey (AMP fabric with 3/4 LENGTH zippers)- $73.00
Short sleeved club cut jersey (AMP fabric with FULL LENGTH zipper)- $75.00
*Also note that the 3/4 length zippers are hidden. The full length zippers are not.*
Peloton bib short (rear butt panel) Triton Nylon Lycra, Torino seamless pad- $78.00
Short sleeved skinsuits (Pesente fabric, Tornio Pad)- $107.50
If you want to begin placing orders now, tear it up.
PLEASE SPECIFY MEN’S, WOMENS, AND SIZE, WITH YOUR ORDER.
I will be placing the order on the 18th of March.
AFTER MARCH 18th, THE ORDER WINDOW WILL BE CLOSED.
From that point, the production process will take six weeks (though due to Voler’s backlog, by my estimation should ship from me, the second week of June.)
If you have any other questions, feel free to direct them towards me and I will do my best to answer them.
Thank you for your time and consideration on this matter.
And now to paraphrase the immortal greats, “everybody have fun this weekend. Everybody wang chung this weekend.”
