Pause Ponder and Pedal Files


Okay, sorry, that was a terrible pun in the title. But, hey, it's what you've come to expect from me. And I'd hate to let you down.

I wouldn't want to have been this guy. Look at the panic on his face. Although I guess, judging from your entires this week, its not his face that he should be worried about.


Early versions of Optimus Prime really kind of sucked



Bike sex: Illegal everywhere except Germany



Fred Knievel's daredevil career was never quite as successful
as his big brother, Evel's.



All good captions, my friends. But it was KABLOOEY that was just a little more out there this week with...


Harry Dean Stanton, two weeks after that tenth DWI bust cost him his license.


Okay, KABLOOEY. Way to go my friend. I'm happy to provide you with your big "brake"
(heh, heh). This week you be hangin' with dufus. Hurrah, hurrah. Yadda, yadda, yadda.



Thanks to everyone for playing. And now that I've gotten over that little episode last week, we'll see you next week for our next PPP, same time, same blog.

00dozo: Yeah, we know you felt like a bag of snot, right.

Eeek, at first I thought you were pushing (pun) that Pedal Files For Dummies book that Amazon recently yanked off (pun?) their list.

Thank goodness I was wrong.

And a big congradumalations to our dear Kabloosters!

Quirks: I'd never head of that book. Just seemed like a funny pun, albeit in extremely bad taste. But hey we're looking for blogs that taste good, not ones with good taste, right?

Oh, YES! I'm really happy to accept the award, especially since I came thisclose to never getting to win one, since Dufus was thinking about ending it all. (Man, that came out wrong... ) But I'm so glad he's staying in the game, and that others will get to know the thrill of victory. I've spent many weeks being that "agony of defeat" guy, careening down that icy slope. (Anyone? I know Dufus will get the reference.) Oh, yeah: I'd like to thank Dufus, and God.

KABLOOEY: Dufus and God? Wow, have I ever come up in the world. Oh...and never was Slovenia's Vinko Bogataj more famous than the years he spent flying off the ski jump on ABC's weekly Wide World of Sports. I guess now you can say you're no Vinko Bogataj!
I can't believe I got an honorable mention. Thanks, NoName!

Mike: You must be on a roll. Um...wait a minute, I'm confusing you with butter.

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …
