The Bandit




My Dad unearthed my childhood bicycle today - The Huffy Bandit. It looks vaguely like a BMX bike but it was designed for street use only. This was the late-70's way before Mountain bikes came into fashion. Check out the rad racing stripes and a plastic bumper thing. I completed the awesome look of the bike with one of those things you stick on the handle bars that make a rev, rev, sound.

Thanks Screenhead!
The fine folks at Screenhead were kind enough to link to the new Deathray Davies video on the glurp site. Our bandwidth is going bonkers.

Big Apple
Another post about organic snacks...I know its crazy to pay almost three bucks for essentially two dehydrated apples all cut up, but these things are really good. Just Apples. I can't tell if they are freeze dried or what. Maybe I need one of those Ron Popeil gizmos.

Zappa = Genius
I'm not talking about this Zappa. Check out this quote from Frank Zappa back in 1983. He essentially lays out the digital distribution model we now see with iTunes, Napster etc...

"We propose to acquire the rights to digitally duplicate and store THE BEST of every record company's difficult-to-move Quality Catalog Items [Q.C.I.], store them in a central processing location, and have them accessible by phone or cable TV, directly patchable into the user's home taping appliances, with the option of direct digital-to-digital transfer to F-1 (SONY consumer level digital tape encoder), Beta Hi-Fi, or ordinary analog cassette (requiring the installation of a rentable D-A converter in the phone itself ... the main chip is about $12).

All accounting for royalty payments, billing to the customer, etc. would be automatic, built into the initial software for the system.

The consumer has the option of subscribing to one or more Interest Categories, charged at a monthly rate, without regard for the quantity of music he or she decides to tape."

well the U.S.P.S. finally closed down our favorite little sub-station on Mary Street in South Austin. They had a party for the employees on the last day. A band played in the lobby of the post office - very Austin. We'll miss the fine folks over there. Check out
the article
(with a glurp mention) from the Statesman.
