I was very happy to receive issue 10/50 of “Shine in ’09” by Donald —- a sparkling local little book of poems, and bikes. Takes place in San Francisco.
The first time Donald showed up to butterlap, he let me know he had found out about it through my posts, so I thought that was rad. A few weeks after that, he handed me this book, so I’m sure he’ll be happy to see it posted here.
His writings mention plenty of spots you will more than likely recognize. Reminds me of riding in my white boots and impromptu make-out sessions by maggie mudd’s. It’s pretty good.
(If readers ask, and if you happen to drop-in the blog, let me know -if these are sold- where they can buy a copy)
This week I’ll be posting local and commercial prints that I have been gathering and/or come across and been wanting to share. I love print and I keep/collect/exchange/donate/recycle these, depending on each individual item. Thought I’d share the love. Cheers
Mi mom got me a copy of this October Lucky magazine. I have browsed these Lucky magazines when I go to the dentist, and it is usually about past seasons, but it’s kinda fun to see the thousands of shopping ‘suggestions’ that I never knew existed. I have too much fun in vintage stores but anyway, below are some pages that caught my bikey eye. Nothing too new, bikes in commercials and ads have been increasing their popularity and I’m all for them. Any exposure is good. Well maybe not the credit-report commercials mocking the fact that because you can’t get a good credit score, you don’t get a car therefore you ride a bike. Aggggh. Ok, nevermind – back to magazines.
Bicycles in ads, wish they felt less posed and more real, but I got my gReader and the awesome blog lists to get my dose of wonderful real peeps on bikes. And if some celebrity or models are actually riding a bike I’ll spot it on dlisted or cyclelicious celebrities posts.
This issue will be given to a friend or recycled. Ding-ding =)
