Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

i thought you were asking who was riding my bike tonight. i thought i was, but then i saw this thread and wasn't sure. the astronomy department here is actually hosting an event on top of a parking garage for the eclipse.

it is cloudy, but i like riding up that parking garage so i may go.

I REALLY wish the eclipse was yesterday. It was BEAUTIFUL and clear, and I was already on my bike at that time.

Tonight... supposed to be stormy (already raining now). Hopefully, it'll clear up though.

DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOUR BIKE IS? NEWS AT 11!

P.s. Overworked mod fix my grammatical error? I'm going to need some OCD medicine if the title sits there in its horrible grammatical glory.

You guys do realize it just looks like a regular moon phase?



Lunar eclipse=least dramatic astronomical event. The penumberal shadow moves slooooowly across the sky.

i'll be spending that time producing my award winning thrash radio show "living after midnight" on wixq 91.7fm (lancaster, pennsylvania) or wixq.com globally.

i have some really unholy **** planned for during the eclipse. lunar eclipses are always a foresaken time, as they represent god turning his back on the earth and allowing satan to rule with his darkness, power and mystique. i recommend that during the eclipse you listen to my show, burn a pentagram onto your mom's living room carpet to summon the beast, maybe sacrifice a goat or a dog (this isn't the appropriate time to sacrifice a virgin or a child) and entreat satan to recieve and accept the sacrifice that you offer him. for if you bear his mark, he will fulfill your desires and crush your enemies. right now it's snowing, grim, frostbitten and very foresaken here, so i think i'll drink some miller high life and rip an unholy bong before my very very grim journey to the far northern end of town to the radio studio.

yes, but i hail from no other city than philadelphia.
i came out here for college in 2005...

i'm just too blasphemous for you.

but anyway, yeah i know the eclipse is at ten. my show used to be on from 01:00am-03:30am, but then i grabbed this slot which is a much more clutch arrangement. so i kept my show name cause it's kvlt.

Eh already rode, nearly got hit by a dude that decided to not show a signal and pull into a parking garage.

I'll prolly just step outside in about 40mins to check it out tho.

I was just out watching it (outside of philly). it's just about completely red now, just a small sliver of white before it's completely shadowed.
