    Bjork did a show there ... amaaazing.
    Marilyn Manson did a show there as well ... seems to be a nice venue that caters to all sorts.

    As far as the Tool show is concerned, if this was back just after the release of Aenima I would be ****ting myself to get a pair of tickets. Unfortunately, 10,000 Days has pretty much solidified them in my mind as nothing more than "stoner metal." Maybe if they agreed to not play any new crap.

    Yeah man, keep up.

    Jet. No idea on pricing. I'll be there helping price stuff. The stuff I'm taking will vary from dirt cheap to reasonable. I'm debating taking a set of double straps, but they will be priced for poseurs.

    Hrm ... tricky.

    CBN Bike Swap is open to buyers at 10am ... and I have to be at work at 10:30am. That gives me about 15 minutes to browse and pay before humping my ass over to Queen and Pape. Cavit8, how strictly do you think that 10am starting time will be enforced?

    The one thing i would expect to get at the CBN thing is WET (hope not) waiting to get in. last time i went guess i got there late cause when i walked through, there was not much there (left).
    I hope to hit there early as long as cats & dogs are not landing on me anything less than that i'm there.
    Cheers

    If this is in the parking lot or whatever, I take it I can just walk my bike along w/ me as I power shop?

    Hrm ... maybe I should show up early and drop some beaters off to sell.

    Its interesting to watch you guys talk..

    so far I learned that..

    1) You all like bikes. All kinds of bikes, which is good.

    2) Your the least poser-ish of the pile of people on here. None of you seem to care wheter something might be construed as cool or uncool.

    3) You like to drink and eat alot. Drinking ill pass on, eating hmm perhaps Ill join you at some point.

    4) New words ilke cagers? what is a cager? Sounds like someone in a car. or motor vehicle

    5) You like the word ******. May I suggest other off shoots of the word.
    ******mania, Dr of ******-ology, ****** aholic, ******-centric, double******, etc etc...

    6) You like deals.. I dont know if any of you guys are catchng some of the sales im posting. Im trying to locate some fixie stuff at a good price, as well as a deal on tires.

    In any case thanks for reminding me why I am still here in toronto.....

    ciao for now

    I don't think I'm going to brave the wet weather for the swap this morning. Good luck guys!


    ps. I'm still on a messenger backpack hunt. If anyone spots a chrome or reload pack, let me know. I've checked out the Ortleib, and while they seem solid, they aren't really what I want. I need more pockets to organize all my crap.

    Speaking of reload, has anyone ever seen any reload stuff in the city? I don't recall ever seeing anything -- either in a store, or on a person.

    I think Curbside up on Bloor sells Chrome stuff ... nothing's ringing any bells though for RELoad gear.

    Just (win the lottery and) spring for a PAC w/ the X-Strap option. Broke-ass ... double****** chump.

    so who is hitting up this bike swap? I'm looking out the window and it looks like it might possibly be raining or something.

    Its time for expand your vocabulary:
    Todays word is DRAFTQUEEN: Name given to those that choose to ride behind you in a long ride, then zip out in front of you in the last few clicks.

    Good use of the word double****** eyefloater

    Try using "****** in training" in a phrase

    Shinaz: Its definitely raining. I think I will go check out the sale, if I can swing it with my schedule. Ill be in a long blue leather trenchcoat, and black cocotte courier bag with zoom media on it. Wonder if anyone is donating a c 40.

    Thats reminds me of another new word. ******-40, slang for colnago c 40.

    Does anyone know how to pull a picture out of an EXCEL file?

    Ive started getting some secret sample pics from the land of the rising sun and felt I should share and get some feedback.

    -polly

    EXPAND YOUR VOCABULARY
    Few phrases
    5 easy ******s : kind of like 5 easy pieces the clint eastwood movie. Could refer to something easy to do, or a bunch of easy to do things.

    ******ball in the side pocket: You can say this when you make a good score like a c-40 for $20 or a vintage track frame for $10. You cant say this in front of the seller though, but you can say it under your breath or later as you are walking away. Or you later when you can tell your friends you can say " ya he wanted $50. I offered him $20.. ya it was great man totally a ******ball in the sidepocket.

    ******mobile: This would be a word to describe a vehicle of someone you have strong dislike for ie .. here comes johnny riding his ******mobile. Or that bike is a real ****** mobile. Not to be confused with the batmobile... actually on that note

    Batmobile: You could say this when you really like someones bike, example Hey man your bike is tricked out like the batmobile, or man your bike is a real batmobile. Can not be used a durogatory term.

    Jokermobile: You can use this to describe a bike so funny looking just the site of it makes you spit your drink out from laughter. Example "hey man I saw a real jokermobile at the bikeswap on sunday.

    Hey don't sweat it, it'll still be raining tomorrow. I think I may swing by there and see if I can find some new not too costly toys to play with.
