The Whitney Comes to Baltimore
Yesterday was sweet payback for all of the modified short loops Pa Ingalls took me on at Razorback- the modification being that the loop was made longer and more difficult. Riding around in a motor boat all winter then showing up with your single speed wasn't the winning strategy this time. I'll just enjoy the moment, since I am sure to pay for my insolence at some point.
They keep showing up doubters and leaving as believers.
DTG brought to my attention that John Waters visits FSU tonight for a lecture. Although his body of work is long and counter-culture aficionados most likely prefer his edgier work, Pecker is by far my favorite of his films. Starring in the movie is Ed Furlong before he went all trainwreck, and manic sexy Cristina Ricci. It's a fantastic story about the pretentious world of art snobbery, which is one of my hobbies.
So, I think DTG is right that if one can swing the John Waters lecture and still make it to the Slackers show then it would be almost like living in some fancy other place than Tallahassee, yet tomorrow morning it would still be the podunk town I have come to love.
And that is the long explanation for why I am heading to the forest to ride while it is still dark outside.
The Robot Army needs constant tuning.
