Celebrating 40 years of comi-con, including a google theme, I too celebrate the occasion and a chance to display my fond affection with the proximity that the blogesphere community brings between people with common interests.
I’d like to give a huge thanks to Patrick [see his picture here], from the hen power duo behind vélocouture. Knowing that I love wearing crazy fabrics or colors [we are tight] he sent me this shirt he thought I’d enjoy. From PDX with love.
It was a lovely surprise when I opened the envelope I received in the mail, I loved it!! It is a great conversation starter (including random French tourist photographers – oui oui) and it even includes popeye on a bicycle, how rad is that?! So, here’s my post to show it off with pride. Thanks so much, Patrick!!
Girl in a coma is a band from San Antonio, Texas. Glad they had a show here in SF. Calitexican and I met there. Parked our bikes. Chill. Bikes and the bottom of the hill and we had fun. The show went great, these gals rock.
The above was one of the opening bands. The singer was so decked out, it was painfully stylish! matching gloves, neck piece and hat. Just gorgeous.
Then we parted our own ways. Early mornings and late nights, within the same day seem so poetic in a sense that they become different days within one. Do you relate? With very few cars, very few pedestrians and always bikes roaming around you coming and going (not so many in the wee AM hours, but there are always the caffeinated early-early birds).
Thanks to Skip, for sharing this brief – happy ending story about his friend Maggie and her stolen bike.
“i thought i would share this totally awesome stolen bike poster, made by my friend/bandmate Maggie Morris
the happy ending: some dude in the south bay bought the bike off craigslist, and brought it back to her when a friend recognized the bike from the flyer. crazytown.
the bike & flyer in question is attached.”
