Bike Fetish Day 2008

Today after getting off work I decided to go for a stroll. Much to my surprise (and good fortune) I stumbled upon the Bike Fetish Day festivities in full swing!

This is the winner for “Ugliest Bike”. I for one do not see what is so ugly about it. I think it is pretty damned cool!

For more pictures and video footage of Bicycle Fetish Day, check out my flickr and YouTube sets. Be sure to check out who won “Best Of Show” as it made me want to gouge my eyes (and ovaries) out.*

*As I was trying to film this event (while seated on the street) this man’s son kept using my head as a place to lean on. Twice I had to remove this houseape’s arm/body from my head. Having to supervise another person’s offspring makes me more than a little testy. Hillary Clinton once said:

It takes a village to raise a child.

This may very well be so. But speaking as one such “villager” I am none too fond of this arrangement. I am all for free childcare, I just don’t want to be the person providing it.

  2. i have had people lean on my head WHEN I AM STANDING UP…just because one happens to be under 5 foot 2, does not mean that one is a convenient armrest for those 6 foot and up. imbeciles that make this mistake with me do not make it again. puke on the best of show winner. i prefer the so-called ugly bike. more interesting to say the least.

  4. I feel a bit lost since I broke my camera, so I went out today to shop for a new one. Didn’t really get much shopping done, but I did overhear the following dialogue at J&R:

    He: Did you ever read a blog called “New York Shitty?”

    She: Of course, very funny.

    He: I don’t think she lives in Greenpoint anymore. I think she moved to Bed-Stuy.

    She: Why Bed-Stuy?

    He: I think Bed-Stuy is going to be the next Bedford.

  6. annulla: NICE! For the record, I signed a two year lease for my apartment in GREENPOINT. Although I visit Bedford Stuyvesant regularly (I adore the architecture) I ain’t going anywhere.

    And that includes Bedford Avenue— which I cannot stomach anymore.

Tell me what you're thinking...
