"History is hard to know, because of all the hired bullshit, but even without being sure of history it seems entirely reasonable to think that every now and then the energy of a whole generation comes to a head in a long fine flash, for reasons that nobody really understands at the time -- and which never explain, in retrospect, what actually happened."

This Isn't Going To End Well


An epic bmx crash & burn, found at the fine We Mine Deeper. The photo was undated. Though it has the look and feel of a vintage early 80s bailout I think it's probably no more than 3 years old (Bone Deth is a current troupe).

Dude must be 20-foot plus in the air, no matter what decade the photo was taken. Ouch.

When Woods Were Woods


I love this photo of Hogan and Palmer circa the height of the Kodachrome era. Even the fans (or "patrons"--it is Augusta, after all) look stylish. If there were sex scandals back then, nobody knew about them.

Please Bring Back Kenny F#&king Powers


To paraphrase Joe Biden, Kenny Powers is a "big f#&king deal." Powers, of course, is the fictional baseball player and all around good ol' boy played to perfection by Danny McBride in HBO's Eastbound & Down. The show, produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay, was almost a goof, quickly put together when HBO placed an order. Season One consisted of six episodes. And they rocked. Hard. A second season is coming, sometime. No word on a date, or how many episodes there will be.

If you don't watch this show then the terrorists have won.
