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)

For the dudes that were talking about Portugal, I saw them last night and I'm a little disappointed with their new stuff.

I have a private playlist on Youtube that only has songs that are common, but no one knows the name to. It mostly lyric-less songs. They aren't songs that I particularly like, just songs that I can go back to if torture myself thinking "what was the name of that song again?" Here are 2 songs that are in the 90+ song playlist.

Yeah, okay dude. At the risk of sounding like an old dude, while surely being younger than you: your music just sounds like a bunch of noise.

This song came up at work today...we were discussing the MI resident who ripped his penis off while on mushrooms.

This seemed appropriate:

Townes was great! He was an amazing songwriter.

If you're into jazz/funk (Weather Report style), check out these cats from North Texas State:


This is a track available on their CD, "The World is Getting Smaller."
