A message from a bicyclist to nearby drivers...

AH, gotta love the self righteous cyclist.

Show me one cyclist that actually comes to complete stops at stop signs, doesn't run red lights, and walks their bicycle through a crosswalk. Your laws may vary by municipality but the common theme I hear from the self righteous cyclist is, "WE'RE JUST LIKE VEHICLES!" Sure, usually when it suits you though.

I say this as a cyclist myself: People bitching about cars hogging the road need to get off the high horse.

My Prius turned 1337 during it's third tank of gas. It's therefore (3)1337.

Yes, I did try to take a pictures while driving exactly 3 mph, but it was blurry.

How that for k-lame? Beat that!

LOL :)

I will have to dig up my odometer pictures. Yes, I have pictures of 31337 and 44100 from my Civic. I hit 31337 sometime in early 2006 and had the camera ready.

I see your k-lame and raise you one!

Goa is okay in moderation. I don't know if I could take 8 hours of 4/4 909 kick drum anymore though. You definately need to be stimulated or just plain hyper to dance to it with any longevity. I seem to gravitate towards Breaks these days. A little slower, chunkier and funkier. Maybe that's an artifact of choosing to maintain a natural chemically balanced nervous system these days :) Or I'm getting old...

I find it interesting they use cassettes. A laptop with a 60 gig harddrive could easily store 500 CD's worth of music in MP3 format (taking out about 10 gig for OS and the one app needed, Traktor.) It also seems like beatmatching would be more of a pain with reels of tape. I'm sure the decks have some sort of variable pitch control and they know what #### to FF or RR to though. Then again they could just be playing mix tapes.

If you don't want to lug vinyl and you don't want to play MP3s with their sonic degredation amplified 1000x over, playing WAV's off a hard drive with Traktor seems to be the logical choice. You could still get away with about 80 hours of tracks.

He's pretty much considered the founder of this whole movement. To call this "freestyle walking" as some people call it is really not doing him justice. He's in a league of his own.
