The whole concept of Danger Doom seems really lame to me, hence I've avoided it so far. But people keep saying it's good, so maybe I should just give it a go.

Also, ok, next Friday, that's better. Also for (later) that night: if anyone's into MSTRKRFT, I'm going with two lady-friends of mine.

See, and I like my bell. A friendly reminder to peds and rolling slackers to stay out of my way on the rare occasion I go down a bike path. And allows me to sneak up behind people on my near silent fixie and scream "Ice cream man" while frantically ringing the bell. Gets some interesting reactions, particularly from small children.

On the issue of ebay, I've been dinged anyway when things are marked gift; you can't control what the sender put on it. I ask them to put the purchase price, rather than the value on it and to ensure it's marked made in USA if possible. The last Fuji I bought was made in the USA

The worst is when the cops set up on Beverley or worse on Stephanie at the T intersection at the top of John. I've seen them sit there dinging bicyclists for rolling stops. The worst of the worst is apparently if you get a moving violation on your bike it can effect you car insurance, might just be a rumor, I certainly don't want to find out. Its bad enough being under 25 and being insured I don't want to think about what would happen if I had some points on my license.

I have several kool keith and MF doom songs memorized word for word. Why? Because I've listened to the damn albums a thousand times. Hell I could probably recite you half the ultramegnetic albums. Wierd rappers are just so fresh!

PS. Get off my elevator

That usually only happens if you give them your drivers license. When you are asked for ID on your bike, you do not need to produce your drivers license. If you do and you get points, take it to court.

Or so i've heard.

They run your name through the laptop in the car, license is listed, NEVER HAND IT OVER, then it's up to the discretion of the officer, so always be polite to the man. lol

I always hand over my ohip card

Riding away = resisting arrest. I'll take a moving violation over a felony charge anyday.

Shiz we have much to talk about next ride...........

It's funny, I guess you can't really look at someone and guess "hey, you're a Doom fan aren't you?"

Andrew

Beware the grocer when you press'em with your thumbs though,
See no grocer wants bruised plumbs yo,
Once bruised one time tis forgotten,
And once the plumbs is rotten,
The skins'll cut your gums
At the corner store a sign reads 'for sale'
Plumbskinzz fruit cocktail
Only ones runnin to the corner: pale males
Open all night them corner plumbskinzz is stale

Zeb-love-x (aka MF Doom) of KMD, 'plumbskinzz'

And riding away = arrestamania.
