Anonymous asked: Do you have any pictures of your old Spooky?
MY FAVORITE BIKE EVER!
Weird hand built tubs with hubs I salvaged from a wrecked set of Zipp 303’s. Miss matched Campy shifters. I think the brakes might have been SRAM. The cassette was definitely shimano and the chain was definitely campy.
Magic drop to heart.
The way Rodney Mullen feels about skateboards, I feel about yo-yos.

Tradition is sometimes confused with transmission. Copying Momoyama pieces is transmission. Producing contemporary pieces incorporating Momoyama period techniques is tradition. Tradition consists of retaining transmitted forms and techniques in one’s mind when producing a contemporary piece. Tradition is always changing. A mere copy of an old piece has not changed; it is nearly the same as its prototype of four hundred years ago. Tradition consists of creating something new with what one has inherited.

"The army stationed me down South when I was younger, and I couldn’t even use the same bathroom as white people. But things have changed so much. The younger generation isn’t nearly as racist. I’ve been sitting here for fifty years. So much has changed. This neighborhood used to be all black. A white person couldn’t even walk down this street. All the races kept to themselves. Now you’ve got Indians talking to Pakistanis, blacks talking to whites, everybody is here and learning from each other’s cultures. I’ve been sitting here for 50 years. Things are getting better."
