Music: Talking Back to the Night


"Something seems to take every dime the man can make
His dream is getting smaller and he wonders where to turn
And he's trying hard to make it
And he's trying not to burn"

Found Coolness: Jay Adams

Jay Adams one of the original Z-boys. This was probably before I was born or very close to that year.

“In contests, Jay was simply the most exciting skater to watch. He never skated the same run the same way twice. His routines were wickedly random yet exceedingly tight and beautiful to watch: he even invented tricks during his runs. I’ve never seen any skater destroy convention and expectation better. Watching him skate was something new every second– he was “skate and destroy” personified.”

Ca. mid to late 1930s


Ancient exotica. WOW! A supercharged, 3-cylinder two-stroke engine with at 3 Amal carburetors, 3 small superchargers, which share a drive with a dynastarter. The engine is a 'flat' triple, with 3 parallel bores and water-cooled cylinders.
