i almost got hit AGAIN coming off the williamsburg bridge this morning. this time a flatbed 18-wheeler decided it needed to drive up over the pedestrian area right at the foot of the bridge. and of course gunned it up without looking. i doubt it was headed up the bridge since it was kinda huge. maybe it was just making a leisurely mid-morning u-turn.

so Critical Mass tomorrow. . . not sure how well this has been disseminated, but i'm still running into friends who haven't heard: multiple meeting points for tomorrow's ride. washington square park, tompkins square park, madison square park, and of course union square. 7 pm. all the rides are then going to try and join up with each other. if the cops are going to keep harassing us, let's make it a bit more challenging for them.



i came across this album randomly a few weeks ago, and i just keep going back to it. it feels reminiscent of something else, but reaches that balance between familiar and refreshing that can really hook you in. any suggestions of comparisons/parallels would be interesting. on this track i hear a little bit of The Microphones and maybe Bedhead. but a lot of the other tracks are a bit more rockin', so yeah, that probably doesn't help you much at all. enjoy.
