BSNYC Friday Foot Quiz! (And Away-Going Announcement)

Monday, September 19th is a very special day. Why? Because that will be the date of my next blog post!

Yes, that's right, circumstances require that as of today I take temporary leave of this blog until Monday, September 19th, at which point I will return with regular updates. This leave has been in the offing for quite some time, so don't act all surprised about it, even though I haven't mentioned a thing about it on this blog until just now. Also, I won't bore you with what I'll be doing during my leave, though I can confirm that I will not be doing any of the following:

--Going to Interbike
--Going to Eurobike
--Going to the Vuelta a España
--Going to Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp™
--Getting an adult Bar Mitzvah

In my absence, I suggest that you follow my Twittering account just in case I have important news to relate, such as my consumption and enjoyment of a particularly tasty brand of corn chip that I think you might also like to try. (Where's that check, Doritos people?) And speaking of Twitter, a fellow Tweeterer recently alerted me to the existence of this:


It would appear that someone is trying to achieve a sort of arch McSweeney's-meets-Cycle-Chic effect by combining photos of models on bicycles with prose like this:

When piloting your velocipede it is imperative that you consider prudence, modesty, and decorum at all times, lest you be sanctioned by local law-keepers for improper attire. For, you see, high moral conduct is the chief concern of our metropolitan constabulary, and young women on bicycles must bear in mind the moral weakness of pedestrians as they navigate our sin-besotted conurbation.

In other words, don't ride with your ass crack showing.

As for the so-called "Brooklyn Magazine" itself, I had never come across it before, but the following video they've produced is a pretty good summation of the current state of affairs:

Brooklyn Magazine Promo from Louis Gruber on Vimeo.

Yes, Brooklyn does have many faces, and they make you want to grab them by their patterned scarves and shout horrible, horrible things into them.

In any event, pending my return, I'm pleased to present you with a quiz. As always, study the item, think, and click on your answer. If you're right you'll feel inexplicably tingly, and if you're wrong you'll hear a song.

Thanks very much for reading, ride safe, and I look forward to "seeing" you when I return on September 19th.

If they make a BSNYC/RTMS/WCRM epic movie, it has tremendous potential; provided the screenwriter and the director are true geniuses.
Obviously, the script would have to include the outrageously funny commenters (bgw, commie canuck, Leroy et al).
Legal reasons may cause name changes, unfortunately.

Fdbfd 9:31,

Now what are we supposed to do?!

Well, I'm in the T-shirt business, so I'm going to start selling baggy yellow t-shirts emblazoned (or possibly bedazzled) with Snobicisms. I might get some URINE HAPPENS stickers made up also.

Actually, that "Have A Nice Day!" t-shirt scene in Forest Gump has always irked me. It is a redundant variation of the SHIT HAPPENS sticker scene directly before it. It seems like both ideas were spawned during a single brain storming session. The movie make'n people couldn't decide which would work better so filmed both, then got too precious and couldn't bring themselves to leave one or the other on the cutting room floor. I would have left out the t-shirt scene, mainly because of the appalling prop design. The execution of the smiley face in the mud is terribly forced. The expansive landscape porn, gradual degradation of Gump's appearance and stirring period music featured throughout rest of the epic jogging (rundonneuring) is very engaging and disbelief suspending, but the unfortunate smiley face detail does a good job of wreaking all that.

"... but he couldn't draw that well and he didn't have a camera..."

Pushing a bit hard to explain the premise of a stupid scenario if you ask me. Which you didn't. Sorry, but we've got two weeks to kill here.

For those who point out the 188% of reported bike injuries and are worried about our society's innumeracy; there are a number of ways that polling could be done to generate those numbers. My guess is that each injury had it's own "Have you ever experienced...." question with a yes/no response.

I slowly rolled on a fresh green past a young, CAT.6 Fredtard on old steel who was stopped at the light, yesterday.

Not to be outdone, I doubleslapped to a smaller cog and showed him what an old man on tasy crabon fibre can do. He got dropped faster than Andy Schleck at the end of a stage race.

How about:

BIKESNOB IS A HOMO (SAPIEN)

by Vito

screenplay by the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology

Nilsson Schmilsson said...

MIDNIGHT BIKE SNOB

His sidekick Vito: "i'm walkin' here,
I'm walkin'".

I have it on good authority that Snob is in Hollyweird and has been screen testing for the lead in the Marco Pantani Story.

I hear that he just about had the part when he screwed up the cocaine huffing scenes by continually sneezing when he should have been snorting.

Some things are just not meant to be.

Sure wish Snob would post a "BSNYC (Currently aka BSLHR) Friday Surprise Quiz! (And Coming Home Early Announcement)"

OK, 179

@going for position

The next real podium is the start of the second page of comments. If I remember right, the second page starts at 200 or maybe 201...

So twenty more and the sprint will be on!

Pack fill, to get the sprint going!

Can you ride a bike across London bridges? When I was a kid, they always talked about them falling down. Since they keep falling down so often, they should just allow bikes only to ride across them.

Just don't use a bike share bike. They are so heavy they might just make the bridge fall down anyway.

(This comment is fill to start the podium race again. It is posted anonymously, since it is pure gibberish. I ain't claiming to having made it anyway.)

Nebraska bike commuter (non DWI edition) said...

Having achieved my (likely) only podium finish at the start of these commments, I'd be happy to lead someone out, but I'm not gonna be around the 'puter for a while, so you're on your own.

Where's Wildcat Waldo Machine?
And why's he going to appear on the Beeb tomorrow?

On the basis of his Twits, I picture a dandily-attired gentleman piloting a faired recumbent in a decorous fashion. In TOTALLY related news, David Byrne went car shopping.

It's the fucking Snobpocalypse, I tell ya...

PawnShop said...

Rounding the bend onto the Champs-Élysées, the field picks up speed...

PawnShop said...

Oh, BTW, the sprint is for 201st. 200th stays on the front page.

Nogocyclist said...

Does being anti car make you pro bike or does being pro bike have to make you anti car?

No, a person can be pro car and pro bike. Having said that, there sure are plenty of anti bike pro car people out there, so that brings up another question.

Why do some people believe you have to choose to either like bikes or like cars? Why can't they just use both of them like the rest us?

Wabbit season?

Duck season?

What's your name?

Who's your daddy?

He rich?

Is he rich like me?

Nogocyclist said...

The Wabbit is actually a pretty good "down home" type restaurant in Gretna, La, a suburb on New Orleans.

GhostOfTyrone said...

I was not aware it was duck season.

Nogocyclist said...

Yes, that restaurant is my go to restaurant for dinner after the bike (BMX) races down there.

So surprisingly, "The Wabbit" is a bicycle related subject matter.

Nogocyclist said...

And coming in last......me!
200! WoooooooWhooooooo!!
