Again I stumbled upon some blog that I’ve never seen before, and the latest post covers something I can fully Identify with. I’m sure that anyone who’s traveled by air at least once or twice can see where he’s coming from.
Basically he’s bashing the travelers at airports who move up and hog the space around the baggage claim belt thinking they’ll get their bag(s) so much faster because they’re 3 feet closer. He’s even made an illustration to further shine a light on the situation.
Just stumbled on some news from back home in Sweden. Apparently they’ve built a new concrete skatepark in Sollentuna. Not too far away from where I used to live.
The park was basically completely finished, and then they had to tear it down and move it because it was built under some power lines. And they don’t think about stuff like that before starting an expensive project like that?! Amazing.

A few years back, to help Stephen Murray, FBM offered custom frames and some of the proceeds would go to the Stephen Murray fund. Custom frames being something they normally didn’t do.
Now however, they’ve launched this really cool custom “frame builder” order form. Basically you can pick and choose between all available frame styles and “feature” detail FBM have ever produced. And also pick your frame geometry and tubing size & gauge (within limits) to set up your dream frame.
I think the list of options and range of geometry is rather impressing. Most riders looking to get their own unique frame should be able to find the options they want there, as long as it’s not something completely out there.
Here’s an interview with Big Dave about the custom frame deal.

I’ve been trying out this new application that I found when surfing around on the net. It’s called “Blogo” and is programmed by the dudes at the company Brainjuice who, by the way, have one of the coolest URL’s I’ve seen.
What it does is that it enables you to write, edit and format your blog posts via a desktop application with a clean interface and then publish with the click of a button. Normally you’d have to login via a web interface to write what you want, but with this neat little application you’re not even restricted to having a network connection to prepare your content. I like it!
I just read that one of my favorite bands from my youth (I still think their old albums kick ass) is playing in Melbourne in June.
I’m sooo going to book tickets and go see a good ol’ death metal concert!
I just saw, on TheComeUp of course, that Micreation has put the video part with Brad Simms online for free viewing here. That dude’s got some serious POP! Check out the screenshot below — That’s a 180 from flat. Nuts.
Posting the link to this edit also gives me a reason to post a photo I shot just before I moved to Australia, when Brad was visiting Stockholm and he was blasting the mini ramp at the local indoor park.
