Out of Tune keeps posting great pictures on flickr. She is one of my favorite flickr contacts. Adding a little story to go along with the picture is a nice touch.


I think Ricky Gervais is awesome. The Office (UK and US) is a great show. He does audio and video podcasts with Stephen Merchant and Karl Pilkington, which are very entertaining. I haven't seen much of his HBO series called "Extras," but I hear it's good.

I've been trying to decide what book I would read to Geena's 3rd grade class if I was invited in as a "Guest Reader."

I'm thinking about buying his children's book Flanimals to see if it would work. It looks creative and funny.

I snapped this on my phone on my sunday ride through Wompatuck. I decided not to eat them. Are they poisonous? Is there a mushroom expert in the house?

Mountain Bike Race - Helmet Camera

I got out on my mountain bike today so I've been browsing through mountain biking videos. This one is crazy. I get an adrenaline rush just by watching it.

"A Helmet Camera view of the WA State Mountain Bike Downhill Race. Watch Lars from Fluidride take flight on his mountain bike as he flies down the hill.

All footage provided by Twenty20 Helmet Camera"

Bay Area Mountain Bike Documentary Norcal Biking Video

MTB DOC (Spring 2004). Video documentary shows the mountain bike scene with interviews of Msdhw members and Herb from Versus Cycles. Also features Jamie Goldman's backflip at DMC. Filmed and edited by Calvin ( Total Running Time: 13 minutes :: Northern California Mountain Biking Community :: Downhill Freeride Dirt Jump XC DS FR DH Vid

A nice mini-documentary on Mountain Biking and it's culture. Momentary lapses into bordome but it's only like 12 minutes. They capture some excellent footage and the host is good.
