All Hail the Chief


Go see "Chief" at the Grand National Roadster show this weekend if your in Los Angles. Pictures don't do the details on this car justice. Helped Travis get it running and stopping right before the show when we thought it might have to be a push in entry. Might not be the cleanest or most "traditional" but with out a doubt this car has motivated more people then the poorly thought out but highly finished cars that seem to get all the press. Like Major League Two, "they have no marbles". A problem solver not model car. First hot rod I ever drove!
Simply put, this little RPU is a motivator.
More on that here: Perich Brothers

Kurt Morrow

There were a few pit stops on my way down to San Diego. Met up with Kurt at his new/old shop in Ventura and got a few more pictures for a project I'm working on. Always good to see, but I'm surprised he hasn't left for a hidden bungalow in a mountainous japanese town yet. Sometimes I think the subtleness of details in his bikes (and the amount of time he puts into them) are lost on most of the stateside motorcycle world. Check him out here: Ventura Motorworks
And thanks to Jailbird Jefe and Mr. McGinnis for the purple couch of sweet sleep and late night Venice boardwalk bike rides.

As Ice Cube would say....

Well, I'm sure you know the rest.
Sunshine, Twisties, January, Northern California and 70 deg. Word to your mother.

I haven't been on Hwy 35 for six years and it was night then. Never been on this section of hwy 1.
I have no pictures of the magic carpet ride that is this stretch of road. You'll have to go check it out for your self. 120 miles on a little 305cc. Good times galore.
There will be blood.
"You can get anything you want, at this place that has nothing to do with the song"
Hey look, there's Japan.

Chili dogs and river walks with the space cadettes.
Sunday's in man jose.

Suck it el nino.

Walk me out..

Used to hate a lot of things, but then again, they were all things I never tried. Older and wiser or beat down and desperate.

This song (never mind the title) used to be the song I would listen to while winding down for the night. Sometimes I would listen to it more then once because the build up was that good.

A mind eraser night cap to ensure a restful sleep....

Yet I never knew what it was about.
Or why exactly I had such a strong reaction to the particular song.
The interweb is an amazing tool.
Almost like that six degrees of Kevin bacon nonsense. But better.

The post-apocalyptic world never sounded so sweet.

If you actually went to that link you read that the song was originally written by Bonnie Dobson about the movie "On The Beach" an Australian movie about a post-nuclear fall out earth.
They don't have monologues in new movies.

INSANE! Racing footage from the movie.
Always wondered why morning dew reminded me of the smell of gear oil and sea air.

I guess they made a remake...
No Thanks.

Connect the dots. A clear mind is better then a soft matres.

How I've missed this place.

video
It's been a more then a few years, since I've caressed your sweet seventies curves, Greer Park. How I've missed your slippery walls, and ever changing youth art. I'll be back for more soon.
With softer wheels.

SpaceShippingOut


Our buddies from sector xp-38 of the outer milky way got lost on their way to the city. We gave them directions and a good late night diner, and they were on their way. Safe travels.

Shoot um up!

My taste in music is diverse, varied, yet focused around a conective ideal.
I've been into this band for a bit, but this video makes my month.
It's really dorky, but rad none the less.

Ventura Motor Works

Took a few shots of this after Kurt had finished it a few years ago. The bikes with its owner up in Northern California now and I think he changed the bars up a bit. Was just kind of messing around with one flash but it came out pretty decent. Have a good week all.

Crippled Puppies

My friend Amelia brought the new version of her band Crippled Puppies down to san diego for a show. Cool to hear all her old songs with a little more piss and vinegar. Defiantly lives life devoid of fear.

Rage

Most of the time, it's people having arguments with themselves at this corner. A rare day indeed.

Gunna take a freight train... down to the station.

This song came on in the rain at 3am, on a poorly received fm station, driving around empty streets in my truck. Yes, Toy, I can see. Forgot about this song.

What I said yesterday goes for tomorrow. New pictures. If your lucky.
