Here’s some footage from our first WIPE, sponsored by CRAP and the Extreme Picnicking Society. We rode to McDowell Mountain Park on a Friday evening, ate a giant picnic and slept under the stars. The next WIPE is planned for the evening of Saturday October 18th, we’ll ride to Usery Mountain Park in East Mesa. It’s 23 miles one way.

The rest of the photos are here:

The Truth of the Matter

if it’s on the internet, it must be true  the truth  (edit – the page editor isn’t working on my machine ever. if you want to clean this up, delete this edit and fix the page. yep) 

Things To Do

1.  Just for today, preface everything you say with, “Now, I’ve never done LSD, but….”

2.  Do a Google search for the phrase “I think what I regret most is” (see results here – – the best are the last)

3. Increase your magnesium intake.  You’re probably not getting enough.

Now go take on the day!

Not Just For Homos

A photo essay

I see a story here:

“I don’t know, it’s kind of big”

Ooooh, he’s taking it too fast and gets rejected

“It’s all right baby, just let me put my pickle right in there, yeah baby that’s it”

And if these activities result in any children, they will undoubtedly grow up to look exactly like this:

Uncle Fester

Uncle Fester…a member of the Adam’s Family, that he is.  Known to many as the goofy, ghoulish uncle from the popular TV show, cartoon, and movies.  But, some might not know the Uncle Fester has a more sinister meaning.  I shall describe this, and maybe tell you it’s actual meaning once I finish with this, but maybe not as well. 

 So the story starts…and there was much rejoycing…yyyaaayyy!!!

Uncle Fester is a very good friend of mine.  He makes me laugh an myself un-controlabley at times.  He also makes other cringe in discust.  But after cringing in discust, those who were doing the cringing often laugh as well and give eachother HIGH FIVES.  Uncle Fester appearances rarely last longer than five or six minutes, but these brief appearances last far longer in the minds of the those who met Uncle Fester during his time around them.  His appearances are brief, because, well, unfortuntately or fortunately, depending on how you look at it, he is whisked away on the wind or the air conditioning system of the place where he chose to make his appearance.

 Now I must add, that when Uncle Fester appears, he is not seen.  He is occaisionally heard.  But if you do not hear him entering the place where you happen to be, you will most certainly know that he has come for a visit by his very distinct smell.  The smell of Uncle Fester is a very fine, if not accquired scent.  His appearances are often foreshadowed by great meals that will later be said to be in honor of Uncle Fester the day and/or night before he makes his granduoso appearance to his subjects.

 So, have you figured out who my friend Uncle Fester really is?
