Improving Cycling Hydration Pack Airflow

pack-1

So I got tired of the ongoing sweaty back syndrome I had when riding with my cheap pack I’d picked up on Woot! a while back. The problem were the protrusions to raise the pack from your back weren’t big enough to actually raise the pack. As a result, the pack stuck to my back [...]

Corrections House, Grohg, and Nate Hall at Kings in Raleigh 1/27/2013

P1030878.png

Some shots from the Nate Hall, Grohg, and Corrections House show. Nate Hall was a pleasant surprise, and put down a scorching set. Might have been the tightest Grohg set I’ve seen yet. And man….Corrections House…bass saxophone, 3 folks providing vocals, electronic drum pad, synthesized percussion and backing track, poetry reading, egg shakers and other [...]

Sea Creatures

Ocean Wall Collage

A little while back I took some pictures of a cool crumbling wall that had a variety of sea creatures painted on it. The lighting was awesome, but each of the creatures in each would have been noisy if cropped out. Wanting to use the shots for something, I put them together in this collage [...]

  • Almost Random Quote

    A few days ago I realized something surprising: the situation with time is much the same as with money. The most dangerous way to lose time is not to spend it having fun, but to spend it doing fake work. When you spend time having fun, you know you’re being self-indulgent. Alarms start to go off fairly quickly. If I woke up one morning and sat down on the sofa and watched TV all day, I’d feel like something was terribly wrong. Just thinking about it makes me wince. I’d start to feel uncomfortable after sitting on a sofa watching TV for 2 hours, let alone a whole day.

    And yet I’ve definitely had days when I might as well have sat in front of a TV all day—days at the end of which, if I asked myself what I got done that day, the answer would have been: basically, nothing. I feel bad after these days too, but nothing like as bad as I’d feel if I spent the whole day on the sofa watching TV. If I spent a whole day watching TV I’d feel like I was descending into perdition. But the same alarms don’t go off on the days when I get nothing done, because I’m doing stuff that seems, superficially, like real work. Dealing with email, for example. You do it sitting at a desk. It’s not fun. So it must be work.
