Never seeing a movie again

A couple weeks ago (yes I am behind) we went to the movies with (e:uchina) and (e:yesthatcasey) on a beautiful spring day. We went to see Mad Max at the Galleria.

I don't know why we didn't watch the trailer or look up what it was about before but its had me decide I am never going to the movies again.

The movie was freaking terrible. it had essentially no real plot. An hour and a half of disgusting macho car culture bullshit. All of it consisted of was screaming, shooting and explosions on trucks and engines that I assume were supposed to look awesome but seriously stressed me out. Not to mention that (e:Paul) and I noticed this weird islamophobic theme to the whole thing. An oppressive desert culture running off oil, with brainwashed soldiers blowing themselves up against freedom fighters for some promised afterlife? If that's not propaganda I don't know what is.

The worst part about the movie was just when you thought it was over, the characters double back and repeats the past 45 minutes. I want my $15 bucks back.

Buffalo bike plan

(e:terry) and I went down to the library for the presentation of the final city bike plan. The plan is pretty good (they even have protected lanes designated all the way down Main, and separated lanes going from the Buff State path to the city line) if they can actually manage to implement it.

After we rode with the Black Rock rollers like a block (lol) to Big Ditch and Electric Aveneue. There was a drum'n'bass night starting but we left Thankfully we got to do a real ride to the park and then our to house. (e:yesthatcasey) came over to get spanked.

I really like riding with that group - maybe I'll make it out of work earlier to ride with them.

You can view the plan here:

Night rides

(e:paul) and I have been taking a lot of slow rides at night lately. It's usually a perfect temperature. No one is on the road. And at Paul's preferred pace we could ride forever, chilling and talking brogramming.

On these rides he discovered maple water - water tapped out of maple trees with a slightly sweet taste. How boug!

Down at canalside they have these weird glowy men. It's cool how many people just end up hanging out there at night. How many places in Buffalo are almost occupied 24 hours a day now?

Hike at zoar

(e:paul) and I headed down on Sunday to hike at Zoar. The weather was freaking perfect.

We walked down and swam a bit in the creek. The water was ridiculously high - not sure if it rained or was the snow melt still. On the way back from swimming past the flats we couldn't even walk along the creek back to climb up at point peter.

Instead, we went on this crazy non-path through the woods. I had no idea where we were going but we were hoping to find the trail. The sun was going down and the mosquitos were out.

The creepiest part was where we found two other car wrecks in the woods. Next to them were purses and shows. Real weird.

Finally we got to one of the brooks that flows over the main trail. We were able to climb right up and ended right near the parking lot.

We thought this was an emerald ash borer. I squished him. Turns out he's just a native six spotted tiger beetle. Sorry guy :(
On the plus side Paul took a gypsy moth nest and sank it in the river, mafia style.

There weren't many people down in the flats. Just one cruiser, a couple of bros, and us.

Heidi and Dianne's bachelorette party


we had (e:Heidi) and (e:dianne)'s bachelorette party at our house last week. I didn't manage to get many pictures but it was an awesome time. It seemed like everyone stopped by especially when Dana was playing.

(e:terry) passed out early and got some pretty braids from Kallie. (e:paul) and I made it out a little longer with (e:flacidness), (e:Robert) and (e:xandra).

The scrap yard


All this embodied energy, bought, left rust and scrapped for some new junk.

At least it's not in a landfill?

Show house


We went to the show house last Friday with Paul's mom. I'm glad we visited with her but the house itself is not my thing.

The house is so ridiculously big. I know we lived in an oversized mansion so its hard to talk ((e:yesthatcasey) is moving in so I can dump a little guilt) but this is on a mega scale. It was also filled with a lot of fancy useless knick knacks and decorations that I'm sure cost a metric assload. I am all about making these mansions size multifamily. The weirdest part about the whole thing is that its done by a whole bunch of dofferent designers and you can't take pictures. wouldn't you want to get free advertising? seems backwards.

The squished roadkill out front that (e:paul) wrote about provides good contrast.

Bike smut in Buffalo


Last week as part of Buffalo Bike Month, we went to Bike Smut, a bike porn/art show at Hot Mama's Canteen. (e:Heidi), (e:Dianne), (e:yesthatcasey), (e:robert) - everyone was there.

It combined two of my favorite things, bikes and porn. Its definitely my favorite art piece ever. I don't think I've ever watched porn in a collective experience like that. There was every type of porn involved, gay, straight and even literal sex with bikes (like penis in the moving spokes). Crazy.

The host of the show was so jazzed about it too, he even got everyone to sing a rousing song about their "bikesexual feeling" s at the end. (e:uchina) I bet you would have loved this event.
