We love art. We love bikes. So naturally we love art about bikes. Our very good friends Josh and Tran Wills (of The Shoppe and The Fabric Lab) have brought Artcrank to Denver this year (Saturday, April 11)—and we fucking love them for that. The bike-inspired poster art show, which originated in Minneapolis, features 40 local artists, a bicycle carnival, a bike-themed fashion show, drinking, games, probably some blown-out tires, and ends with an evening ride through the city. Get your going.

Howdy, I am in Leon, Spain. We got put up in the youth hostel. Awful nice place they got here, bunk beds and everything, but the shower is cold as fuck!

We went to France. Le Havre, it’s in Normandy, which pretty much got annihilated in WWII, so all the buildings in town are new. Our good friend Rulio put the show together at an Irish pub, which is kinda weird… and since we had to cross borders, we didn’t bring any grass to smoke, so we were all kinda stressed. Plus, our driver almost ran the van out of gas—TWICE! We got a Mercedes Sprinter (that’s how we roll, y’all), which runs on diesel; so if you run a diesel engine outta gas, you will fuck it up real bad.

Late-October?

The van got towed and it cost Rainer (he’s renting the van to us) a shitload of money to get it out.

We cruise to Stansted Airport—it’s on the other side of town—to pick up our booking agent/driver (Mike) and his lady (Beatrice). They’re flying in from Italy, and Mike is taking Beatrice on tour with Git Some for her 22nd birthday (which was September 20th). What a gift! Fuck. “Yeah, baby. Rock tour for a month with the dirtiest dudes from the States I could get. I love you, baby.”
