hey that girl who i can't remember the name but remember the lips where are thou?


This was sent to me by my friend Ant, who's living in a teepee on an organic farm outside of Seattle somewhere ... must be a teepee with internet connectivity.

It's nuts that people have been riding these bikes like this for decades. Anyway, the video is amazing and backs up my opinion that freestyle fix gear bikes are better suited to BMX flatland type tricks, many of which seem to be inspired by this brand of crazy whirling dervish riding, or vice versa ...

T.Whites expansion

Skull Bike Clubber and all round good guy Tim of T.White's Bikes has been tricking out his store, modular style. I saw the model Callum made for the renovations, here are the photos - it looks awesome. Apparently this only took 17 hours. Scaffolding rules!
I'll definitely have to go check this out at the weekend as research for my shed.

Save a dear deer head


Thought I'd start doing some reviews on MAME ROMS because there are soo many out there and I don't know where to start. I'm more or less just going on games I remember playing in my misspent youth. I figured MAME ROM reviews would be useful for me, so if I do some they'll be useful to someone. By the way, multi arcade machine emulators rule and everyone should get one, so thanks to Mark Skulls for cluing me up on them. Here goes.


I played this a bit when I was a kid, but I remember it being fiendishly hard.
It's a Sega game which looks a lot like Golden Axe, the two even share a monster -- the beaked whippy tailed things.


The plot is this. Some necromancer type guy resurrects you from the dead to go save his daughter.


The first stage is in a kind of roman graveyard, so most of the monsters are undead. The undead/zombie theme persists through the levels. I guess the Roman thing and the wolves is supposed to be some reference to the founders of Rome, Romulus and Remus. Don't know really, but it's a cool aesthetic and something for the nerds.


The game is as hard as I remember it being and the game play isn't great, but the monsters and bosses are cool, especially the eyeball shooting one on level 2.
I also dig how, when you kill the flashing two headed wolf, you get powered up until you turn into a beast. The dragon is my favorite so far.


I guess I'd rate it 3 out of 5. The game play could be better and it's a bit too hard for me, but it looks rad, has cool bosses and has a good premise. If you like games with zombies and weird monsters and like a real challenge, then this would be a good game for you. I'm going to keep playing it until I clock it, but I'm glad I don't have to pump 20c into every time I die.


Oh, and as requested, a larger image of my SE OM Flyer.


And here's some chili chocolate skulls -- $1 from the Mexican Specialties store on Celtic Crescent, Meadowbank.

i was meant to post this a while ago but never did. seeing all the skull squad updating the blog lately pushed me to do so.

anyhow preview of something i'm working on so i can do long distances with my imaginary dog and my not so imaginary angel of death

Turn the bass up on this one

I never really listened to this before. Old motorhead like bomber and aceofspades is my favorite and reminds me of the glory days at the pit when bruce wasn't there. But a couple of songs on this are really great. Ones been stuck in my head for weeks.

Heres some more stuff I stole of some other blogs

Kevin Cyr paintings are amazing and his camperbike sculpture is the kind of functional art that I really love.

Compulsive Bicycle Acquisition Disorder (CBAD) strikes again

Just got this: 1980 SE OM Flyer.
As many of you may know, Scot Breithaupt more or less started BMX in 1970 when he began promoting pedal cross races in Long Beach. He later started Scot Enterprises and this, the OM Flyer (Old Man Flyer), was his signature ride.
Chrome ones are real rare and are said to have only been made for the OM himself. It's possible he left it here on a trip to New Zealand in the early 1980s, but it's more likely it's just a rechrome. However, rechroming stuff in the '80s was real expensive, so the mystery remains. Don't ask about the serial number -- OM Flyer serial numbers are notoriously cryptic.


Don't spaz out on the berm!

Raddest wheely ever at 1:13 -- dare anyone to come up with a better one!

Straton tribute post

Im gonna miss you buddy.

dont worry! hes not dead. Just leaving london. Actually hes in italy visiting marty wowza (above) and will be back for a day before flying home to NZ, so this maybe a little premature. We tried our best to get him to stay. D-locking his arm to his head certainly hindered him a little.

Hes leaves us a legacy of prison tatts

and bikecam,

the trashportation bike

Chillin wont be the same without you man.

Anyway this video ought to cheer you up.
