School of Rock

Several years ago I was a musician, I miss it like hell, those were some of the best days of my life. I sang with several bands and got to play in many different cities, I learned more from those days than in any classroom I've ever sat in. Many of those days were spent in a town called Petaluma and specifically in a very very very special place called The Phoenix Theatre . If your at the NoMeansNo show tomorrow night I'll see you there. Oh and make a tax deductable donation the Phoenix if you feel so inclined.

Schwinn's New Line of Electric Bikes

Do not attempt to adjust your monitor, this is really a picture of an electric bike. Schwinn’s forthcoming line is probably the slickest and most smoothly integrated set of power-assisted velocipedes I’ve yet seen. Schwinn teamed up with Protanium Inc. to develop a whole series of rides in different configurations (the Streamline pictured above), all of which employ lithium polymer batteries and in-hub motors, both well concealed.
