what is a fiasco?
is it a disaster that goes good? I think i can recount it
* bike porn lost in Arlington
* 3 bike porn tourists show up and throw down and realize we didn't bring it
* bike porn found at the absurdly nicest peoples home in all cascadia
* Woody and Coco, our Couchserfer hookup drive fast to the goods
* the pickford cinema hosts TWO over-capacity screenings at 90+ people each
(one theat to call the fire department was taken care of as we found legal room for all the people)
* the porn crew stubles out into the late night Cornwall action
* some street heckling/bike porn lyrics to tubby drunk gangsta yelling at a girl "hey bitch where you going"
* he steps to the bike porn
* he gets clowned
* his friends show up
* i have to bob and weave to avoid getting creamed by HUGE mofos in more chains that a prison guard and too sober for my comfort
* situation difused eventually
* my glasses found
* bikers roll away
* a meth head walking down the middle of the street wearing all black gets warned
* Tackler lets her have it (totally an accident)
* Lauren is embarrased/tramatized/crying, meth head is screaming in "pain"
* methhead demands to have the ambulence called, then passes her pipe to laruen to dispose of
* more drunk ganstas drive up we direct them to the open lane without people laying in the street
* they slow down... then gun it into a our host, the Worms' Shawn's bike, which his my baby, Duff#Five.
* the firedept and police show up and assess
* we roll on, lick our wounds and harass Yellow Brake Maitland's sister and husband who live in town.
and now it starts raining... perfect time to go ride out bikes to annother country
and that's where we are at. if someone has a more detailed review (maybe more about the porn, just email me revphil*AT*gmail*COM

They laughed, they cried, and when they were done Seattle was not the same city it was before.
Big thanks to the people working (mostly) behind the scene who have chosen to remain anonymous. Also the CHAC, which is totally sweet place.
Tomorrow (actually only 19 hours from now) we will have biked to Bellingham from the deep northern seattle burbs (this pimp palace that lauren found on couchsurfer.com (i think)
2 (two) screenings at the pickford.

BUT NOT THIS ONE! It is good email, with links to a bike porn video, that i'd like to share with yalls cause it is already online and who am i to tell people not to share bikes and boobs online. (plus I dont feel like trying to "empty the pool" if ya know what i mean.
Earlier this month a fine fellow comes up to me after the Cyclecide performance in Seattle and tries to show me with a video. I can t see it, so we share paper. Just a couple days ago i found the paper and emailed him. The result is good old fashioned homemade biker pron from the deadbaby downhill in august from this year
So the total result is, video shot in seattle, found a month latter in seattle and now blogging about it in seattle.
You would think i like this place or something.
We are about to screen The Pornography of the Bicycle for the first time in Washington in an hour, the deadbabies are bringing the sexercycle and I think there is a compitition for who can give the best ride.
There may be a second screening if the first explodes with huppy goodness.

Regardless, I dont normally pay them much heed. But the saga of Olympia has caused me more fits than a tailor before a big gay wedding.
- Capital Theater
- Manium Collective
- Le Voyeur
- The Mark Olympia
- The Black Front Gallery
- The Red Room
- Midnight Sun
- Brotherhood Lounge
- Evergreen State College
- Puget Sound Community College
Speaking of Manium, they have been writing me about how the city has been treating them unfairly. Sending Police around to remind them that they are not legaly able to have shows? Sounds silly (if not unconstutional) to me. There was a mess of other points they bring up in an email I got from the Manium folks saying that the City of Olympia has:
- continually miscalculated their occupancy. At one point the city said Manium's occupancy was 12.
- demanded Manium rebuild the stage so large that it took up 75% of the room.
- done a bunch of other crap that I dont want to get into.
I myself have seen in Portland a similar process whereby the Govenment uses Fire Code to try and squash upstart business. But that is my own conspiracy theory.

So I am showing some porn. you may already know that (i hope). But I am also joining a bike tour North to Vanocuver BC. That means riding our bikes from 100s of miles into the wind (likely).
It is absurd and wonderful and so are the people coming with me. For example, one of our members is riding his tall bike on the tour. His reasoning: "It is my only bike with gears"
aint that cute? totally practical.
naturally there is another blog for the riding with lots more info for you to enjoy: http://pdx2van.blogspot.com/
I suppose I shouldn't be to demeaning, after all once a person has made the leap from flesh'n'bone to fabricated object where does it end?
Well if you were ever interested in using this device for anything other than its origional intended purpose than you probably would want to fill in those holes. Something the readers of this blog are probably capable of doing.
the FAQ is awesome as well:
Q: "How long do the hinges last?"
A: The hinges on the Banana Guard are called "active hinges". In the plastics world this means that the plastic molecules are specially aligned to provide for maximum strength in the thinnest form. As long as the hinges are not twisted they will not break with regular opening and closing.
Q: "You don't have an outlet where I live. How can I get a Banana Guard?"
A: We deliver worldwide.
Q: "Is there a battery attachment?"
A: No. The Banana Guard was designed for its intended purpose only as a device to prevent banana trauma during transport.

The Pickford Cinema just contacted me with exciting news. Due to popular demand they have requested a 2nd screening of Bike Porn.
So while I cant even get a response from folks in Olympia (yet), Bellingham is gobbling up the porn like a greedy lonely adolecent teen who just learned about the Internet. NOTE: for the record I am not pleased with this comparison. If you have a more appropriate analogy please let me know.
Couple this with the team of Canadians who are coming down to meet our tour in Bellingham and we have the makings for some hella. I don't know what kinda of hella, but it will be hella nonetheless.

BIKE PORN IN VAN COU VER! mucho thanko to Ifny for setting it up.
We now have a date, time AND a location.
- Friday, September 21st, 2007
- The Wise Hall, 1882 Adanac
Stoic and respectable on the outside, and on the inside as well... for now. That all will change in just a week and a day.
We are working on a full schedule including an auction of some bike porn memorabilia and a live reenactment of the events leading up to my arrest during the 2006 World Naked Bike Ride.
We did this once before in Portland to a standing ovation (mostly due to the inspiring (maybe terrifying?) interpretations of perpetual cokehead/community college enrollee Amanda Trucsott and 0ff-duty bully Chad Stensgaard. DUDE! how bizzare is it that a google search for officer Chad Stensgaard links to ichatgay.com
Perhaps there is no coincidence at all...
Anyway, expect hordes of people frolicking, no arrests and who knows what other kinda mischief might happen later

i heart Seattle, and its not cause anything here is all that great, but damn i got some nice fucking friends up in this jam.
Bumbershoot is the most commercial thing i have been to since... uh Disnyland (circa 1996?). But luckily a bunch of dirty bikers (myself and many fine Deadbabies) along with the Cyclecide Bike Rodeo from SF we have made folks scream with delight. They even got on the cover of Seattle's daily.
Everyone seems to know about Bike Porn already. Will The Trucks perform in Bellingham? Will there be a second screening in Seattle? Will we even find a venue in Olympia?
so many questions, so little pork.
