The internet can be tough on the body. That’s why this Spring/Summer/Fall, I’m going to take some initiative to get to appointments and places on a bike instead of subway or cab. The thing is, my last bike was a rad little Huffy back in maybe 1987 so I am completely out of the loop. What I’m looking for is something that rides well, has brakes, looks cool, and is remotely affordable. All suggestions welcomed in the comments please.

You’ve got the entire summer to wait for this comedy starring Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel, Emily Mortimer, and Steve Coogan. In theaters August 26th.
We learned Sunday that talented artist/friend/contributor Revok was arrested at LAX while trying to board a plane to Ireland this past Thursday. Bail has been set at $320,000, which is an ungodly amount when you consider OJ’s bail was $250,000. We were directed to a bunch more recent and more perverted crimes that did not even touch that. Seems like the LAPD, a large crew with a violent criminal history, are exacting any revenge possible for the celebration that is Art In The Streets.
Does it matter?

I had the chance to meet Greg “Batman” Davis, one of the founders of the Crips, a couple weeks back. Zio guided me to his website, where you can see more of the signs above, as well as learn more about the man himself.
A friend told me
that a powerful exercise
is counting the steps as you walk (on a long journey)
and inhaling every twelve steps
then exhaling every twelve steps.
You are supposed to repeat this cycle twenty four times
and then (he says) things will become very clear.
I have tried this two days in a row
but have lost count each time
and started thinking about things like
“where can I get a good sandwhich” and “how come
that guy is pounding on the side of that bus.”
