Wife and daughters got me a jacket and pants I can wear when not riding with Traffic Jammer embroidered for my birthday. Can't wait to see 'em, as they are from one of her sports clothing gear suppliers.

Now for something completely different...

Packing two Mr. Potatoheads is a pain in the ass! Only the face bits fit in the butt-trunk, and the hat/arms/feet have to stay attached. How inefficient. Umm... Mr. Potatohead rides fixed gear in my dreams.

Okay, I'm a huge Aphex Twin fan. I just re-found "Melodies From Mars" which is like 11 years old now and was only released on tape back in the day. *rocks out to lo-fi bleeps*

He had a fire a few years ago, if I recall correctly. The front of his current store was ruined and I never really heard what happened but I am sure some of his "stock" was damaged.
