now everyone's getting into the act...

oh boy here we go....obviously the romans would have liked the movie....

if i had to live life over again, i'd spend it all back in college (but with my current paycheck)

DVR is a great thing to have on your TV. As a sexed-up heterosexual who like so many doesn't get enough (is there any other kind?), I of course like to get kinky. I like threesomes; I still remember the time in college when my girlfriend and her girlfriend rearranged my apartment, then we kicked back, enjoyed some wine, pizza, and a good joint, when the question was popped for the first time:

me: hey, have you ever had a threesome?

my gf: uh...no?! but it sounds good.
her gf: (gasp!) no i never had. (just the kind of answer i expected from this prude)
me: well, i never have.
my gf: YOU? NEVER? i find that hard to believe, playa playa!
her gf: you seem like the type that's had his way with women. you never had a threesome?
me: no.
her gf: really?
me: really.
my gf: you're full of shit! you have.
me: i haven't. really! (pause) but i'd like to :)
me (after a long gulp): would you like to? we're all friends. i'd like to do it with the 2 of you.
her gf (after a longer pause): sure, why not?
my gf: uhhh......i'd like to. but not with the 2 of you. you're my girl, but you can't fuck my man.

that, and 3 other attempts since, all ended that way. her girlfriend says yes, and my girlfriend says no.

so how did i make it happen? well, i never did. not yet, anyway. but while setting the DVR to record, i set it for the wrong time, and instead recorded this movie. and it's pretty good. i may never have that threesome. but i will have this movie to enjoy that level of sex that so far has eluded me...

Native New Yorker: Residents of One Brooklyn Neighborhood Gettin' Sick 'N Tired of Gentrification

~what we need is liberation from unaffordable housing costs - or a revolution against "the man" > a resident of Bushwick who just got told his $750/mo 1st floor 1 bedroom apartment is going up to $1050/mo in October.

Whatever is next for New York is probably bad for the other half of the nation. Seems like these days, you need to be an immigrant or rich to survive in America, at least economically. Either you benefit from sheer wealth, or you benefit by the vast array of government programs and plentiful low-wage labor that immigrants flock to America for to make money/ Just how much and how much money you can get your hands on seems to be the relative factor in personal wealth measurement if you're in the right income bracket.

Well, some feel bowled over by those with money or those who can get money from some source they themselves otherwise can't get. For those of us in the middle in makes us just plum mad. Anywaz check out The Village Voice's article
The Second Battle of Bushwick: Thirty years after the blackout riots, it's getting hot all over again.

But seriously folks, if you wanna check out the class war of gentrification and discuss whether it's a good thing (believe it or not it is sometimes) or a bad thing (which it usually is when the robber barons are allowed to control planning of the community's new developments). Check out my boy Norman at the Atlantic Yards Report.

had an interesting saturday - went into east new york to check out kingsriders, a very cool cycle shop with my guest yuya from japan, a cycle enthusiast as well as a prolific blogger and photojournalist on the subject for performance magazine in japan. he can also be checked out at brooklans.co.jp (i'll check on the email and get back to ya on that). the key thing is we saw some phat hayabusahs - the new thing in cycle style and sleekness - so prominent in cycle racing and streetriding. we also saw the $60,000, no make that $80,000 - T-Rex, the ferrari of motorcycle design, style and high-speed.

thanx so much to alex, asia, larry, the hot ladies behind the counter and the rest of the kingsriders staff for the wonderful stickers and other gifts (your DVD was da BOMB EXTRAORDINAIRE) and the rest of the kingsriders crew for showing us the slick bikes, the production facilities, and taking yuya on a hot fast ride in the T-Rex and all the photos (see b-low). and i might wanna buy that kawasaki ninja you got on sale for $1,900...that's a hot bike for a cool price!

not as noticeable as it acually is, there is a current, growing, serious trend developing in cycle racing, sporting, hip-hop and urban fashion going on in this venue that is about to explode like one supernova big time on the international youth market, much like pro-wrestling did in the 1990s but even bigger and more linked to the online community who can communicate, and like the rave of the 90s, set up their own venues secretly and quickly. be ready by the 2008 election for these 'tokyo-driftin' lifestyles to pick up in pace.
