NON SEQUITUR LATHER. rinse. repeat.

February 13, 2017

my kid junior junior has an electric ninja turtle toothbrush that shouts out encouraging messages about fighting cavities but when the batteries were depleted to the point of exhaustion the bristles would no longer rotate and the digital audio sample was reduced to one syllable on repeat and that repeating sound has an unmistakable uncanny resemblance to Ali's laugh. 

and that's why I found this picture of his bike because that toothbrush makes me laugh thinking of Ali laughing and it's not a non sequitur if on his old bike above that's my old CETMA rack that I sold to him and that's my bike with that same CETMA in situ below in front of that building with the writing on the wall that's no longer there because it's just another construction site where another 5 story condo will appear with mixed used street level retail where hopefully the Hugo House can come home someday in a way.

if you had a megaphone what would you say?

if you had some spray paint what would you write on the wall? 


she's like that with everybody

she was like that with everybody

woah. you've posted that image many times before, but i never noticed the /was/ change in handwriting before. graffiti isn't my forte. i suppose the kexp and anti-kexp guy are different too. still ride with your handlebars that low?

we appreciate your attention to detail. when we say we, we mean me. I still ride that bike with that same .833 stem slammed but now with big swept back bars.

i didn't set out to put those two photos of the same CETMA rack next to each other. i was just thinking about ninja turtle toothbrushes and Ali and the writing on the wall and megaphones and I ended up with those two shots bubbling up from my photographic memory.
