The BSNYC Absentee Art Exhibition (Part III)

This simultaneously compelling and repulsive Erik K creation is even more evocative when studied while listening to the song which inspired it.


"diMITRY: I Fofonov"
Media: Gouache, Krylon, and Cream Cheese
Artist: Erik K
Price: Your dignity


On a completely different note, in my absence I have confirmed that a bathysphere is indeed plying the streets of San Francisco, as you can see in this completely undoctored photo:

Again, this is not a hoax.  While I could not ascertain whether the helmet featured some sort of underwater breathing apparatus, I take this as an Apocalyptic harbinger, and have every reason to believe it means that the storied "city by the bay" may be the "city under the bay" sometime soon.  If you live there, I strongly recommend you quit your foffing off and seek higher ground immediately.  Or at least build a submersible.

Maybe the rider takes his Bathysphere to the submarine races.

That first photo... I think I'm in love.

RTMS-
I'm afraid you might be succumbing to the Ali G paradox- you're too famous now, so what you're seeing is a conscious reaction to yourself.

Every bathysphere bike and huge pie plate is an ironic tribute to you- not a rare find supporting your previous admonishments.

hey bitches, come check out my bathysphere!

I tried to fuck my helmet once and my dick got stuck in the vent holes...painful!

Critical Ass (formerly Bikeslob) said...

Hopefully when the dog in the upper right of the SF photo is done taking a crap, he will go hose down the helmet locked to the fixie.

Frey said...

Is that playdoh, silly putty, or some kind of cloth bandage around that front hub?

i just said...

fuck your play-dough covered front hub.

dog in the photo said...

i took a shit alright. do you see the bike. that's my work. i shit bikes. i shit stupid bikes. i shit them everywhere. i have other dogs in other cities shitting bikes right now. we shit bikes. we leave our shit bikes on the street for you stupid hipsters to clean up. so you can wrap your hands in an inside out plastic bag and pick them up. claim them. claim the shit we shit. but we all know that it's just shit. our fuck you to the world.

someone once told me you can't have reasonable discourse on the internet.

ant1st said...

Great comments today. Those f keys are getting a good workout.

wishiwasmerckx said...

You can't have reasonable intercourse on the internet? You're just going to the wrong websites. Oh, discourse? Never mind.

Joseph said...

It's not play-doh, it's a knog.

That is a knog/frog on that hub:

I no see humor in the name of Fofonov. Maybe I say "I John Smith with my dick" and see if you find it to be humorous.

Dear Fuck everything Guy. You are so totally right and we are all owned by your sharp wit and keen insight. Now move along, hon.

stoned/drunkmountainbikerstorytopper said...

such hostility ... bikesnob come back, we've been infiltrated by a pissed off mini cooper driver who likes to drop the f bomb.

Enhancement Smoker said...

Technically, the bike pictured is a bathyscaphe. The bike ain't spherical, is it? But it IS self-propelled (after a fashion)...thus "bathyscaphe" is probably more accurate.

Leave it to the damn hipsters to fuck up classification just because "oh, yeah, that word is KILLER -- I'm gonna put it on my bike!" The girlpants they're wearing must be squeezing their tiny bathyspheres!

When is BSNYC coming back, again?

Anonymous said...

All too quick to assume to rider is a male!

Kinoko said...

cyclist run off?

Frey said...

joseph & annazed,

Thanks for clearing that up. I was looking at those spokepov kits the other day; maybe I'll just grab a knog frog instead.

f bomber said...

really? that's what you think? a mini cooper driver? that's the best you could come up with? a stoned mountainbiker pleading for bikesnob's return? fucking pathetic. isnt your lunch break over? shouldnt you be getting fucked in the ass by your boss now? finish your work so you can catch the L train back from the west side to your loft in willimsburg. then you can walk your mountain bike around the park. fuck you too.

prolly said...

i confess. i was the "f" bomber on the grassy knog. bad day. sorry guys.

BikeSnobNYC said...

Did I forget to turn the ennui off when I left the house again?

Please accept my apologies.

--RTMS

AnnaZed said...

Frey, this Frog lights are cute, but they aren't all that bright.

If you are really commuting you need something like this for the front (ok, well, I use exactly this):

http://www.bikelights.com/Products/vega.htm

it's hella expensive, but bitchin. I can actually SEE the road etc., but have no cables or battery mounted elsewhere on the bike.

For the rear Serfas lights are best (IMHO):

http://www.serfas.com/product.asp?ProductID=308

I have a Frog on my helmet (yes, I am a dork).

erik k said...

lots of hostility today. Perhaps this special limited edition comments section Cadel the Pirate Evans B-side Image release will cheer people up

captain deez nuts said...

fuck pirates. arrrrgh.

Paul said...

The original image is part of a new collection from the swedish fashion designers ACNE. Check out:

Frey said...

annazed,

I'd probably just get a frog for an accessory light too, as I already have a headlight and back light. If I end up doing any serious riding at night though, the vega looks like a great option. Thanks again!

ant1st said...

f bomber - can I get fucked too? It would be such an honor. It's been a while since we've seen comments as good as yours around here. A breath of fresh air is what they are. God I wish I was you, or your friend at least.

cornhole said...

(I need to generate witty repartee, a timely retort that leaves the f-bombert reeling. I need to use my rapier wit and hack him to pieces, I need to bludgeon him using words as blunt instruments of terror).

hey f-bomber

aw fuck you

f said...

fuck frog lights. fuck elle magazine and acne jeans. fuck thank you.

f said...

cornhole,

go fuck yourself. witty, huh? it even makes sense.

ant1,

your sweet virgin asshole was so tight of course i busted. the sex may have been quick butt the aids...the aids lasts a lifetime. enjoy

ant1st said...

F,
There's nothing virgin about my asshole. Ask your dad. Thanks for your aids though, I will add that strain to my collection. By the way, aids is such a negative term. Try calling it high five (HI-V, get it), that's what all the cool kids are doing.

ant1st said...

By the way, does anyone else think that the f bomb commenter is actually a regular trying to stir some pudding?

gap band said...

you dropped a bomb on me

Andrew said...

judging from the comments, apparently he's trying to stir yours (or he already has)

the "regular" said...

i'm just stirring pudding. how's everybody doin? im just the regular guy, stirring pudding.

Sepia girl said...

doesn't anyone want to fuck me anymore?

cornhole said...

lucky 7 thinks he's so damn funny.

i say fuck him.

stoned/drunkmountainbikerstorytopper said...

f bomber,

WOW, you really have me pegged. Sounds like someone knows a lot about NYC, and probably has spent a lot of time on his knees, working it out to pay rent... Let me know when your balls drop and you are mature enough to add something remotely legitimate or interesting to this blog. Sounds like you've been severely abused by one of your brothers ... perhaps an uncle or maybe even your dad. If this is the case, I recommend counseling before you end up in prison with like-minded troglodyte wise guys such as yourself.

the "regular" said...

are you related to tub girl? If so, count me in! definitely down to fuck you.

f bombsyourmoms said...

stonedholyrolller,

damn right i know about nyc! damn right i know about sucking dick for rent! what the fuck do you know?

stoned/drunkmountainbikerstorytopper said...

the "regular,"

completely tasteless... you should really think about getting out of the house more often. you really put the ouchba in douchebag. do us all a favor and go kill yourself.

george said...

I would just like to say "fuck Miami! and palm trees too..what the fuck

george said...

I would also like to say a very special "fuck" to prune juice. Everybody really hates drinking the stuff...and well i just always hated it ...so there you have it ..Fuck prune juice!

kim fileds said...

mind your own (fucking) business

cornhole said...

I tried to fuck prune joice once and all I got was a fruit-stained Johnson. fuck it.

ant1st said...

F bomb - your comments keep getting better, you're even including links now. very impressive. Unfortunately, I have to bow out for the night, but I'll be back tomorrow, and dreaming about you in the meantime.

tex said...

Has the OC been practicing brain surgery on his little brother again? That's not legal, is it? I hope not. It probably didn't do anything for the kid's bed-wetting problem, either, which was the original goal, as I recall.

bk jimmy said...

Why is anyone responding to this instigator at all? It feeds on your irritation. That's the whole point. Just ignore it.

Wow, I think that RTMS forgot to give Erik the "delete comment" password when he left the keys with him. Sheesh.

he left me keys, but they only unlock the orange Julius bike.

You should take the orange julius bike out and run yourself under a truck.

Hey Frilly,
Not stalking but making sure that you are behaving in an appropriate way and keeping yourself "neat" after all your self confessed roadie lust of weeks gone by. Given my role to care and guide those lost slow souls on the road of life it is natural that I make sure that your path is obstacle free. So how exactly did you get up that hill??? Did you ditch the snickers bars in an attempt to lighten. Just carin...

This "bathysphere" bike owner is even more pathetic than the Mini Tool. At least Mini Tool has a vocabulary bigger than that of a parrot.

Eat shit and die, bird brain.

anyone else notice the brake holes drilled on the bathysphere bike? poseur.

frilly said...

Yaroslav-There was a cute guy standing at the corner I usually stop & rest at talking on his phone. There was no way I was gonna stop & take a chance on him asking me if I was okay. Or worse, having him tell the other person that there's a girl hyperventilating & he has to call 911.
Thanks for the carin'.

Yaraslav Popovich said...

Frilly,
All in the super domestique job description ie get water bottles for CE, swap bike with CE,haul CE up hilly bits, wipe nose of CE, fall down in front of CE in order to create excuse. You get the picture or do you???

Yaraslav Popovich said...

Can you imagine THAT VOICE constantly in your ear all day. It is just sometimes too hard and I feel like getting off my bike and hiding in the trees and having a little cry
