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)

Hot town, Summer in the City

back of my neck getting burnt and gritty
snowing down, isn't it a pity
doesn't seem to be a shadow in the city
all around people looking half-dead
biking on the sidewalk
hotter than a match head

o wait

I desperately want to move to Seattle once I'm through with school. Or maybe go up there for my Grad studies. It's amazingly beautiful. I just feel I might not survive the weather since I'm a Southern California kid. But I like the rain and snow, so I should be okay right?

IT is hellarious

there isn't a part of town i haven't lived (except ballard, f••• ballard)

i can't take the snow. never could. good thing it only comes every few years. or less.

also, can't take the hot. i like 45-68f

take more pix. seattle looks amazing in the snow.. but i hate it.

but made some really great connections.
the seattle studio scene is really small, everyone knows everyone even if you dont think u met, you have.

Hasn't snowed here in chicago yet.

I know it will eventually come, and going to be interesting.
