IGNORANCE FINALLY CONVINCED ME IT WAS BLISS



does anyone else out there avoid the bike lane on 5th ave like the plague? it's so much more dangerous to ride in due to the constant swerving into traffic to avoid the 20 + double-parked cars in a span of three blocks. not to mention some juicy dooring potential. i've been taking the other side lately and it seems a lot safer, except for having to deal with cabs constantly cutting you off while turning right. but eh, that's to be expected.

and i must say that i greatly appreciate Bike Blog keeping on top of all things worthwhile and bike-related, it saves me the trouble. so drop by and check out the recent article in The Villager about the last Critical Mass ride. it's a bit more in-depth than the Village Voice one.

i'm too burned out to come up with anything all that exciting. so i'm just going to post about friday's party. maybe it's not a bad idea to mention events more than one day before they happen, huh?

*UPDATE: party cancelled. . . The Wreck Room dicks another one over.

MP3:

so The Gossip came out with a new album, and i am damn happy about it. one of those bands i have tried to see many times, and always failed. although the past three years have been a bit quiet for them. i've always been a fan, but i have to say the new album blows their other efforts right into the back catalog. sometimes nothing pleases the ears better than a great example of the genuine article.

  1. I ride on the bike lane side, but if it's one of those narrow lanes I ride on the line between lane and traffic. I think you have the legal right to be 4 feet from the parked cars, so those lanes are bullshit, especially the way it jogs over on 9th street, so the cabs just head straight into the bike lane until 8th.
