The past couple days I've been using a 3D picture/video viewer to browse youtube and flickr to fulfil my fixed gear content addiction. Every once in a while something like this will surface on the "internets" that is pretty revolutionary. Give it a go and let me know your thoughts.... I've had it installed on a PC browsing w/ firefox for about a week. The version for Safari is limited to 2.0-3.0.4. If you run Firefox on a Mac then you're in good shape.
This is some good stuff, filmed well and the full (Ricky Martin) she-bang. If it weren't for that bugging kid in librarian tortoise shells and Alvin's Island tank tops it'd be darn near perfect. (If you've ever seen his stuff on Vimeo he cruises back by the camera after every trick to display a kind gesture. Hardly annoying at all...
Walking back to our place after watching Andrew Bird at City Stages, I noticed two road bikes locked to a street sign. I crossed the street just to check them out and they were both fixed. One was white w/ a yellow seat and the other red w/ white deep v's? Any clues who's bikes these are? I've never seen either...
Great looking frames coming from Freeman Transport. Frames break apart for compact travel. When I powdered my frame I felt like I got a little carried away with how many parts I ran. Freeman's running even more and it's looking really good. Can't wait to see these on the road. (on youtube...)
Yesterday I went skating for a whole 10 minutes before it stared pouring. However, just a couple of hours later two of my homies were mashing downtown. Here's the forecast for this Fathers Day weekend in Birmingham from ABC 3340:
Wet And Stormy At Times Look for scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms across Alabama today and tomorrow. UNSETTLED WEATHER: Alabama will remain in a very moist environment for the next 36 hours, and our forecast package will highlight scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms today and tomorrow. While most of the showers and storms will come during the afternoon and evening hours, a few nighttime and morning showers are not out of the question. Like recent days, thunderstorms will. have the potential to drop heavy amounts of rain in a brief time, and the storms will also be capable of producing strong winds, small hail, and a bunch of dangerous cloud to ground lightning. Due to the clouds and showers, temperatures will have a hard time getting out of the mid 80s today and tomorrow.
We believe showers and storms will become fewer in number Sunday as drier air tries to work into Alabama, and by Monday the chance of rain is so small that we have left it out of the forecast for now.
Greetings. This blog will be dedicated to the fixed gear cycle scene in Birmingham, Alabama. I hope to educate, inspire and motivate new and seasoned individuals in this urban pastime. Please check back for regular updates, news, pictures and video of the Birmingham fixed crowd. Thanks.
