BSNYC Friday Big-Budget Action Thriller With Explosions Starring Mario Cipollini!

Are you special? Of course you're not--none of us are. The truth is, we're all just microbes on this big blue gumball called the planet Earth, and the sooner we recognize our mutual insignificance, the sooner we can set aside our differences and enjoy our short time here together before the Almighty Lobster sanitizes us all with his Action Wipe of Justice.

Actually, this isn't entirely true--some people really are special, like this person, who is way, way better than you can ever hope to be:

Why is she special? Well, because, as a reader informs me, she and her husband have less stuff than you do:


Yep, she's a minimalist:

To challenge herself, she has stripped her life down to 100 possessions, including books and shoes. She put the TV in the closet to see whether she'd miss it, then got rid of it altogether.

She doesn't own a car and, with her husband, Logan, lives in a 400-square-foot apartment next to an Urban Outfitters store.

At this point, you may be asking yourself the same thing I was, which is this: "If she's such a downsizer, then why the hell does she need two cats?" Well, the article doesn't say, but in fairness to her I suppose it's possible she started out with like 17 cats and then winnowed them down to two. Still, I think two cats is a lot for a minimalist, and I bet in the minimalist scene she's considered a "crazy cat lady."

Also, it's worth noting that the article never actually uses the word "minimalist," though it's obvious that she is one since she has a minimalist's love of Apple products:

By the way, if she's so serious about getting rid of stuff then why not ditch the ergonomic laptop stand and just use a book? I wonder if she counts it as a separate thing or if she just bundles it with the computer.

But of course the most important part of being a minimalist is being baffled by the foolish behavior of non-minimalists:

When she visits friends in big houses, she notices how many rooms are vacant while people gather naturally in one room

Really, rooms are empty when people leave them? What a genius! What's so wrong with having multiple rooms anyway? Rooms aren't subway seats--just because you leave one that doesn't mean you should have to forfeit it. I mean, I'm not in the bathroom right now (okay, I am in the bathroom , but just pretend I'm not for the sake of argument) but that doesn't mean I don't need the freaking thing. I guess we should all live in igloos or yurts and sit on the toilet as we entertain our minimalist friends. Otherwise, I guess if we're to justify our wasteful multiple-room domiciles we need to make sure every room is occupied at all times and communicate with other members of the household via minimalist-approved iPhones.

Oh, and of course it always helps to scrounge off a non-minimalist:

The simple life isn't for everyone, she agrees. People with kids ask her: How is it possible? Even her simple-living husband now has more than 100 things after trying the strict limit for a while.

Ah, the non-minimalist spouse, that's the minimalist loophole. It's like those people who say they quit smoking because they stopped buying cigarettes and instead just bum 20 a day off of their friends.

I wonder if she's a devotee of professional minimalist "57 Things" guy, whose book is getting rave reviews from customers on Amazon:

I just paid $17 for a 72 page book???
I love his concept and courage, however Bogue is sooo against consumerism but charges $17 for a 72 page book??!!
And to say this is a 72 page book is a stretch. Quite a few pages are only a few sentences.
I feel like a sucker.

Amazing--the book is so minimalist even the pages are blank. It's like that "Seinfeld" where Kramer sells his life story to J. Peterman and just gives him lists of things in his apartment--except Bogue doesn't even have anything in his apartment to list, hence empty book

Speaking of smugness, as I've said before my favorite Internet forum is without a doubt the comments section of BikePortland. This is because there are few things more entertaining than liberal guilt, and a reader recently alerted me to a comment on the following post about cars parking in bike lanes:

Said one commenter:

"...a family at some low income housing on Williams had parked in the bike lane and they were hanging out on their stoop. I politely let them know they were illegally parked and that it was quite dangerous. They brushed me off. I took out my phone to call a friend who I was supposed to meet, and they jumped up shouting not to call the police and went to move their car. I felt bad to make them think I was going to call Parking enforcement (given there were underlying gentrification etc. subtexts), but it worked."

At this point I'm not sure I could ever move to Portland, if only because, while bicycle commuting is easier there from a purely physical standpoint, intellectually it's more challenging than getting a degree in "womyn's studies" from a liberal arts college. Between all the "underlying gentrification subtexts" and the riders with seminal works of Native American fiction stuffed down their pants I'm way too lowbrow for life out there and am probably better off staying in New York where I'm alternately stopped by police and harassed by clowns.

Speaking of "womyn's studies," I'm pleased to announce that Bard, Sarah Lawrence, and Wesleyan will all accept a passing grade on the following quiz as credit towards any degree that they offer. As always, study the item, think, and click on your answer. If you're right then celebrate in a manner that does not offend anyone due to underlying gentrification subtexts, and if you're wrong then watch p-far "hillbombing."

Thanks very much for reading, ride safe, and, most importantly, ride postmodern.

Adam Rayner's brother, Jay, is also rather big-boned, although he has the excuse that he's a restaurant critic and he seems to have had some sort of neck and throat lipo which works if you only see him from the neck up but looks kind of odd if they've managed to squeeze the rest of him into the frame. My good lady wife told him (Jay) to "Waddle off and buy a bra" when he suggested she shouldn't be cycling in Brockwell Park.

Maybe farBomber could take a lesson from retro-Fred and put some bamboo aero clip ons and go even faster. He already has the time trial helmet, why not go all out. I can say that as a fellow member of those that live in Portsmugland that I like having more than 100 things. I like using my own toilet paper and creamer. "I don't like cleaning." She has two cats! That quilt couch is probably filled with cat hair. Well, maybe that's what she fills the cushions of the couch with. And as far as building a 150 sqft house, I hope they factor in the amount for the hole in the floor that will be needed to "take a load off their mind."

They are saving to build a tiny dream home just 150 square feet in size, with a loft. Cost: $35,000.

150 sq. ft.?? A married couple living together in that amount of space will lead to one of two things: A murder suicide, or a lot of kids. After watching the video, I'm leaning toward murder suicide.

I apologize for my dark and mean sense of humor. It comes from watching too much 'Leave it to Beaver' when I was a child.

35,000 dollars / 150 sq ft = 233.33 dollars per square feet.

A lame 6 for 8. Phtthhppt.

Turns out there's a secret easy way to be a minimalist. From the link: "Simplicity is a mindset," she says. "It's not so much about what you have and how much you have, but how you think about your life."

So, all you have to do is THINK minimalist. You don't have to lift a single finger. And minimalism has nothing to do with how much stuff you have.

I am a cyclist. I don't own or even ride a bicycle, but I think I do.

That is the most idiotic thing I have heard today.

@Stupid Name,

The average price per square foot in Portland is $165, and of course this tends to go up as the house square footage decreases. $233 per square foot for such a small house isn't out of line.

Of course they could just put a sleeping bag and a hot plate in a decent sized bathroom and be done with it.

Well sure the tattoo accounts for wind resistance and the friction of the drive train, but where's the Fred coefficient? The Fred coefficient is complex and includes such variables as VO2 max, drafting ability, number of days until the season begins, the amount of data being collected from the ride, proximity to favorite cycle shop, etc.

F = (VO2 * (draft + proximity)) / (#days * data)

Any minimalist possession set should logically include a good set of tools, a lathe and a welder. Otherwise the minimalist does not own his possessions, rather is owned by them. So do the individual tools, lathe accessories, and welding supplies count as individual things (which would really compromise your ability to keep your beer cold), or are they grouped into the "toolset" thing, the "lathe" thing, and the "welder" thing?

It's a little known fact that Minimalism was invented by Sheryl Crowe:

"I don't have digital
I don't have diddly squat
It's not having what you want
It's wanting what you've got."

It's also a little known fact that Floyd Landis' allegations about blood transfusions in parked buses and his tending of refrigerated samples in Spanish pied-a-terres are based on Ms. Crowe's lyrics describing her relationship with a seven time Tour de France winner:

"My friend the communist
Holds meetings in his RV
I can't afford his gas
So I'm stuck here watching TV."

It's kind of like the hidden messages about Paul in those Beatles songs.

Ride special all!

I don't know what everyone is complaining for, the post did star Mario Cipollini (I Google the spelling every time to ensure I look oh so familiar with pro cycling). It was a little hard to pick at first, but Cipo played MotoJourno Adam Rayner and thanks to some Hollywood magic also played CycloJourno Zoe Williams, just as Eddy Murphy played multiple roles in the Nutty Professor.

Cipo was chosen to star partly because of his transgenderal proclivity, and also because of his tolerance, perhaps even fondness, for long hours in the make-up chair. It took 45 minutes of skilled make-up artistry to transform Cipo into Zoe Williams. The make-up artists commented that it was the easiest transformation they had ever performed... whereas it took 13 long hours to transform Cipo into Rayner.

Oh, you're still wondering about the missing explosions.... Nutty Professor style explosive flatulence humour featured strongly throughout the dramatised BBC interview, driven predominantly by the Rayner character.

Such is the genius of Cipo, he even played Rayner playing bass for Napalm Death.
