New Hero

Justin is 29, he lives with his 73-year-old dad. He just writes down shit that he says.

I can relate to the shit that he says.

"Son, no one gives a shit about all the things your cell phone does. You didn't invent it, you just bought it. Anybody can do that."

"The dog don't like you planting stuff there. It's his backyard. If you're the only one who shits in something, you own it. Remember that."

"I turn the kitchen faucet on and the shower burns you, yes, I get it...No, I'm not gonna stop, I'm just saying yes, I get that concept."

Gonna be a TV show I hear.

No chin behind chuck norris' beard, there is. Only another fist, there is. Hmmmmmm.
It's doesn't appear to be broken, but I'm utterly determined to fix it until it is.

Bawbee tagged me
Gotta write 7 things about me apparently, then put 7 links to other bloggers.
I only know 9 bloggers, and they'm already on Rickee's or Bawbee's lists...

An I don't know how to put links in all stylee like, Wait, turns out I do...

1. I had blonde hair when I was a kid.
2. I won a contest at Butlins for putting the most things in a match box. "Any advance on 36" the man said, "er...347..." says me. 10 year old tweaker.
3. I lived in Berlin for a bit.
4. I designed the toilet floor on the class442 train.
5. I have fallen off many motorbikes.
6. I like my Briggs and Stratton mower, when it starts...Makes the shed smell like a proper shed.
7. I am full of amazing ideas, that usually never come to fruition.

There, done.

I love Gaffing

So, Thursday at the Sham'o'crete Bawbee pinged his kingpin. Being the Gaffer that I am, I fixed it. Had to take the KP out of the red baseplate that Poulet snapped in the summer, then hammered it into Bawbee's. Sorted.
Replaced the pivot cup to despite "there's nowt wrong with it..."

The Skatebus

She died that we might rock...

OK, Went to that.

Saw this

Was part of a four man CR250M team, all in the pre-74 class. This was the first race winner. Guy told me, some geezer had 3 of them and put a team together. Bloke riding thissun was invited to join team, 'cos he's a bit quick. Sounded so crisp, £6k's worth mind...

Pretty RM125 up for sale, dunno how much. Sorta half restored, reasonably clean but poor paint job. For my money, they gotta look factory fresh or proper used. Anything between seems half hearted.

This made me laff, C50/Junior MX hybrid, fabulous in its pointlesness, even got the red bull can on the susp unit remote reservoir. I want one.

'cos I'm fickle, and a dreamer, I'm over the CR250M, S'all about the YZ250G...

Waitin for Wi-Fi

Here's Grampy Coward, sat on the beach, surfin the net.
Trouble is he's 50 years early as the pc, internet, broadband and Wi-Fi hotspots hadn't been invented.
After waiting for 3 hours for google to upload he gave up and took me Nan for a cup of tea.


Nuff Said

Skated the 'sham'o'crete again this morning, with Muttleyphilbromate, DarkHelmet and Deathstar Tony. Proper fun session.
MPBM took his cine camera, fillum at 11.
DH hung a rockfakie off the big 1/4. Slam worthy of Handjob or even Big Stu. Lucky he's only little and didn't break the skatepark.
No pics yet, so enjoy the usual rock'n'roll shot, this one on the pointy BA:LA:KU deck.

Old Bikes wot I rode


AP50 MAM665P

The AP was first, then the TS (NHR193R) and the DT last


Yay, TS185, fast as an F1 car after 12 months on a moped.
1979, good times.

Went To Brighton

So, Lostchilds and Me drove to Brighton today to move house. Didn't realise it was Pride 2009 until we got there. Looked like lots of fun, chatted to passers by as we were loading the van, everybody was having a great time, shame the weather wasn't better.

Didn't take any photo's so I snagged this pic of a pretty young thing dressed as a flouro lobster from flikr.

I have no idea why.

Might have to go next year and check it out properly.

Dunno what the etiquet is with pic stealing, guess the photographer wanted it public? anyhooey check the rest at tomxcoady on flikr.
