The rowdiest I've ever seen Paul's family. Frank and Tony are hilarious together.

I hate the Buffalo Preservation board

I hate the Buffalo Preservation Board. I hope a historic roof falls on the whole board. Especially Tim Tielman.

Some (3 of 20) of our solar panels were denied by them last Thursday. I have so much to write about it I don't even know where to start, so I'll have to flesh it out later, including the recording I took.

First Square of the summer

Already! Robert Delong was pretty good, Arkells, not so much. Blue is now $5! We saw Kevin for the first time in over a year.

I know it hasn't been the square forever now but it's always going to be one of those things people do just like old people who refer to Gold Circle and AM&A's.

Buffalo World Naked Bike Ride tonight!

Tonight is the night! Buffalo's first World Naked Bike Ride, and the weather is looking good. We are up to over 1000 attendees between the two facebook events. Come join us in a body-positive protest against the aggressive, fossil-fueled car culture and consumerism that cyclists face every day they ride.

Come as bare as your dare (body paint encouraged). We cannot guarantee any interactions with the police, but hopefully there will be safety numbers tonight.

image

Where/when: Starting at 7pm, you can meet us at Sisti Park to get the official starting point for the bike ride. You MUST have human powered transportation or you will not be given directions. This is a protest about bikes and our rights.

No drugs, alcohol, OR photos on the ride. We need this to be a safe ride for everyone involved. There's plenty of people who would love an excuse to shut down the ride - don't give them one.

Expect that the full route will last around 7 miles.

Afterparty: The unofficial afterparty will take place at the end of the ride, at Handlebar (149 Swan Street).
Although you can go down to your underwear at Handlebar, you MUST have yourself covered as they will be serving food.

For the voyeurs:
if you want to watch and not participate in the ride the best places to see the ride is at Bidwell Park around 8:20-8:40 or Lafayette square around 9-9:15.

Rules:

- Celebrating freedom from oil and the beauty of people!
Less gas more ass! Burn fat not oil! Nude not crude!

- DRUGS | BOOZE = arrest.

- Sometimes bystanders get grabby :(
SHY? Stay towards center, out of reach.
CHIVALROUS? Guard our flanks.

- YOU'RE RESPONSIBLE!
Be prepared, stay alert, take care, help others.

- Obey police and thank them for their help.
Goodies may target ticketing. Bare at your risk.

- PARTICIPANTS must utilize Person-Powered Wheels

- NO PHOTOS in our before/after space (xcpt auth'd)
Assume that you will be photographed on ride.

- Arrive CLOTHED&SHOED and carry weather options.
NO GLASS! RECYCLE cans. Bring refillables.

LEAVE NO TRACE!!! PICK IT UP and PACK IT OUT!!!

HAVE THE TIME OF YOUR LIFE!!!

Buffalo's First World Naked Bike Ride

I've been helping to plan the first annual World Naked Bike ride with the help of two friends, Bike Alex and Matt. I wish I posted here first but I've been a terrible (e:strip) per.

image

We posted it the as a private event two weeks ago. This week we posted it on facebook as a public event. In less than three days, we have over 775 attendees on facebook. I got calls from WBEN (no thanks), we were on Buffalo Rising Buffalo News
Channel 4 and Channel 7 - it's been absolutely insane. Who would have thought how popular this was going to be? I even got a call from my mom asking me not to be naked.

Time: 7:00pm. Ride should commence at 8.

Location: Checkpoint will be announced today. You can find it either here or on the facebook event here. We're hoping to limit spectators and harrassment at the start by giving the start point at the time of the event.

Why: The whole point of this ride is to protest against our society's addiction and dependence on oil, life-destroying cars and aggressive consumerism against human powered transportation and community. The nudity is to draw attention to cyclists and pedestrian vulnerability to motorized transportation. Didn't see us before? Now you do.

Wear: Bare as much as you dare. I'm planning on at least some body paint and likely (e:paul)'s speedo shorts.

There may be an unofficial afterparty we are planning as well ;)

Farmer Paul

A week away from the garden let it go absolutely cray. The arugula is out of control and super-spice.

Tschüss Florida

We finally left Florida. How weird is it to be gone from Buffalo that long?

I forgot to post pictures of the house we rented. It was pretty awesome - for less than the cost of a hotel, we had three rooms, bedrooms, and even it's own birdcaged pool and of course HGTV. Everyone in Florida seems to just run from enclosure to enclosure in the summer lest you get snatched by an alligator or flying shark.

The jelly bean game and the last night

The last night of the trip, we headed over to Terry's mom's house to hang out with the family.

I played the gross Jelly Belly game that (e:paul)'s mom had gotten for the boys with Aiden and CJ. Luckily I missed most of the gross ones but I still tried dog food and stinky sock flavored beans. The taste sticks with you. I'd hate to have been the test taster for these.

By the time we left, Finn was crying ;(. Poor guy. Hopefully we will see them all again soon. Here's a drawing that Finn made of his favorite video.

Night out in Sarasota

We headed up to Sarasota with Caleb, Paris and Denise to see if there was anyone who stayed up past 9pm in the whole state. There wasn't a ton going on but there was this "secret" bar behind a sandwich shop called Pangea Lounge - 1568 Main St, Sarasota, FL 34236 - no sign or anything. They had good fries and alcohol cereal - I traded my weird liquory drink for Caleb's cereal. Even the prices were reasonable for frou-frou drinks.

Caspersen Beach

(e:paul), (e:terry) and I on the second last night biked to Caspersen beach, an place in Venice allegedly popular for naked people and sharks' teeth (weird combination) nude beach in Venice. While we didn't see anyone there who was swimming nackt, we did see this grumpy tortoise, sea turtle nests and a really beautiful sunset. We even gave him a brain pet although he wasn't happy about it. Is this what cheating on your pet feels like?

  • Linnie 10/17 06:57 Hi Neighbors - I just bought a groovy renovated carriage house on Linwood Ave, and I'm so excited to live in our wonderful city! The large house in front of the carriage house burned down in the 70's. An article I found about the property cited that 'Matthew' on this site had posted a series of photos called 'Lost Linwood" (article was from 2012). I thought maybe Matthew was still on this site or perhaps someone could help me find the photos. I'd love to see the original house and carriage house
