Amazing photos! I had no idea that Seymour looked like that. I've got some exploring to do.

Benazir Bhutto assassinated

People in those parts of the word have no care for human life, to me it seems like killing free for all.

Now there's a sweeping generalization. Do you assume all Pakistanis are terrorists and assassins? All that I know are truly saddened today.

So, been thinking of a career change

Threats of violence in an email? Your boss is an idiot since you have it documented now. Blackmail his ass! It's gets faster results than suing.

airplane vs conveyor belt

The treadmill doesn't look long enough for all the reindeer and the sleigh to start on so after the reindeer got warmed up on it and took off how does Santa pop onto the treadmill? Maybe shift his weight to the back of the sleigh and wheelie onto it?

I love this card! Merry Christmas.

Jack Johnson

I think he did the soundtrack for the Curious George movie which is why that album was more of a kids album.

Students! How was your semster.

Finished up undergrad in 2001 but went back to UBC this last semester to get my secondary teaching credential. So far it has been the easiest thing I have ever done in my life. We'll see how student teaching goes though.

What was disappointing is the lack of hot women on the UBC campus. WTF! With so many good looking women around Vancouver how did UBC become a black hole for them? Somebody please tell me.

Freeride/DH Newbie

I did the same thing in the summer of 06. Rode there for two days after years of XC riding, fell in love, bought a DH bike, and rode about 40 days this last summer.

It is intimidating and it does seem like everyone is pro the first few days you ride Whistler but you'll be surprised how fast you'll progress and be on par with most people riding there.

Check this singlespeed Bike Flick

New here so not sure if NBR is the right place but didn't seem appropriate anywhere else.

A friend showed me this vid last night and man oh man am I stoked on it! This is the link to the trailer but if you love anything to do with bikes then you've gotta watch this vid.

http://www.mashsf.com/

I moved up to BC from the San Francisco Bay Area about a year ago and I think the main reason I love this vid is because it brings back a lot of great memories of home. Which is strange because I never biked that much in San Francisco. I skateboarded mostly. The vid is done by Gabe Morford, who shoots a lot of skate vids in SF, so it's got that raw SF vibe to it which is why I love it. It also shows how beautiful the streets of San Francisco are.

I actually moved up to BC because I was so impressed by the Mountain Bike scene up here. The first trails I rode here were on Fromme and I had never seen trails that had that much work put into them. I've also never been that scared on a trail. I was used to smooth and hard XC singletrack and not the gnar and stunts of The Shore. The trails and the camaraderie among riders made me want to move up here.

So what I'm trying to get at is that to me Mash did an amazing job documenting the biking culture in San Francisco and really the vibe of the city that I love. What MTB movie do you think best documents The Shore vibe? Does watching Mash get you stoked on biking even if you're not into that style? Are there movies that document other cities well?

I also realize that nobody in Mash is wearing a helmet. They're all bad men.

Don't ever drink from hotel glasses

that what does not kill you makes you stronger

If your body can't fight off the germs on those glasses then you shouldn't eat at any public eating facility anywhere. Anybody that's ever worked in the restaurant industry knows that some of the most reputable restaurants often have questionable sanitation practices.

Those of us who eat mints with traces of urine, sleep on cum-infested hotel comforters, and ride public transit have built up the immunity to be able to travel and eat without being overly paranoid.

An "any good new music" thread

Kelley Stoltz is my new favorite musician. I like his music so much that I actually bothered to register just so I could say that. Primus sucks.
