RavX Lighting Co.

October 9th, 2012

Many moons ago when I first got my bike I got some lights on craigslist. I met some guy in a parking lot by state and I got a set of head and tail lights by RavX. They’ve been hanging tough for a while now but my tail light had a bracket and rubber strap mounting combo and my rubber strap broke from the years of wear and tear. Since I am a fuckin cheap ass bastard (they ARE only $10.19 on amazon AND I have glued it together since it broke a while back) I got a wild hair up my ass to look for replacement straps online. To my surprise there was no such thing. Anywhere. Not even on the RavX website. So I decided I would call them and see if they even offered just the straps for replacement. I called and they had me send a pic of my light with my address so they could identify the model and send me back a replacement rubber strap!

THAT’S WHAT I’M FUCKING TALKING ABOUT!!!

This is my second awesome encounter via phone and email with random shit I wanted in regards to bike parts. One time I called Spank to find a stem I really wanted for my bike. Turned out the stem made my knees feel like they were going to explode but it is a solid stem (destroyed my knees. holy fuck.) and they were super helpful. They had someone hit me back and send it to my local bike shop, he even sent stickers and a shop banner but the stickers were nowhere to be found (I would of done the same thing if I worked there) and the old guy who runs the shop figured I didn’t need a shop banner so he kept it haha. He was right but I just wanted the stickers.

BUT … as I was saying. RavX. Solid light. Flash Tube. $10.19. Amazon. Get one. Get two. Send me one. Hit up RavX. Ask for FREE shit. It might work.

Wait, wait. I recall at one point in time I wrote flying coffin about how their new shirts were not so great fitting. The smalls that used to fit great were now something similar to an amercian apparel shirt. The guy who runs it wrote back that everyone else thought they were great but he offered to send me mediums in place of my smalls and then never got back to me haha.

But yeah get at them lights.

 

Free to be Tracked

September 7th, 2012

Long ass article but well worth the read:

How Your Movements Are Being Tracked, Probably Without Your Knowledge

While slightly tangential, shit like this makes me realize it don’t matter who you vote for, both parties will quietly set up a massive surveillance grid and not bother to mention it EVER! the only difference is who gets paid to make surveillance hardware/software. If either of those shit fucks really gave a fuck about freedom, they’d be fighting this type of shit instead of talking about fictitious economies and how america used to be when their grandparents moved here from who gives a shit while everything I do is logged and added to some massive database for future cross referencing.

I am but a small dollar sign to these people, fuck them and fuck what they stand for. call it apathy if it makes you feel better but I take no part in any of this. Bullshit is bullshit and it matters not if spoken from the mouth of a slack jawed yocal or a fast talkin city slicker.

Seriously, go fuck yourself. I got nothing to hide but our govt. sure does and you better believe the second we are more valuable dead than alive, there will be a lot of dead folks.

We are experiencing a reflection of ourselves being projected in an endless feedback loop with the aperture set at a particular size looking at one particular part of the endless loop. We are all an aperture looking at our own endless loop with our own size and position taking part in an even greater collective feedback loop. I once a heard some tripper say it takes either 3 or 4 days to occur before what we know as a single day occurs. Humans cannot live in the time space of a single *universal* day, we can only occupy that time space that exists within the echoes of three (or four) *universal* days. The *universal* days must overlap each other and once the vibrations have tuned to the proper frequencies we have a single earth day … or some shit like that 😀

How to disable the native element inspector in Firefox 13

July 15th, 2012

Fairly recently I stumbled upon this article on how to disable firefox’s native element inspector:
http://jamesroberts.name/blog/2012/02/07/disable-firefox-native-ispect-element-context-menu/

It gave a quick solution to disable the native element inspector but recently I noticed the native element inspector was back, even after I made the change from the above article. I am on ubuntu and haven’t noticed if this problem exists for mac/ms as well.

After a lil snooping around it looks like they changed it up a bit back there since the last firefox update. Here are the steps I took to get it disabled again. Obviously if you bork something back there it is your problem.

1. launch firefox
2. type ‘about:config’ into url bar and press enter (then, go ahead and click the button once you’ve read the warning)
3. in the search bar type ‘inspector’
4. find ‘extensions.firebug.hideDefaultInspector’ and click on the value ‘false’ to make it be ‘true’

Since I had done as suggested in the link I posted above I also made a point to change ‘devtools.inspector.enabled’ back to ‘true’ since it was no longer disabling the native element inspector.

 

 

Tor Project!

March 1st, 2012

Tor onion

doooooood use Tor for safe anonymous browsing, holy fuck… mind blown (poooooosh)

www.torproject.org

take some time educate yourself read about what it is. It works on linux, mac, pc. You can run it on a portable usb drive for when your on a public network like airport or cafe or anywhere where you don’t want what your browsing to be known. They even have an android app 😀

shit like this gives me hope, it’s weird… open source rules. every day we get closer to terminator akira mess that will eventually be and every day i strive to ready myself for this great unknown when i should just worry about the present moment

today i learned how to use IRC and i learned about Tor, i got to chat with my best friend for a while and had pretty productive day at work. this world is pretty fuckin nuts and all in all it was a good day

think i am goin to clem’s i hope i dont get hit by a car or something fucked up like that

Inspirational Antlers

November 17th, 2011

I found these awesome painted antler to be pretty inspirational. Something about them is really awesome. I really dig the tribal, new mexico, native amercan-ish feel to them as well as the tiny patterns and shape detailing. Simple, sweet and reusing a retired antler. Makes em want to paint stuff gold.

See more antler here or buy some of your own.

Oh My Not Responsible Credit Card Purchase: KAWS SNOOPY

October 27th, 2011

KAWS SNOOPY

I already know how it will unfold. I will be at the office I will be stoked and I will forget about it and remember two minutes after they go up and they will be sold out. Then I feel bad then good but then bad again. I have missed like the last few Kaws realeses this same way but I have landed a few that same way so I guess you win some, you lose some. There’s enough Kaws to go around I guess.

 

Slow Moving Paint

October 16th, 2011

I have slowly been working on some new paintings. I have been somewhat inspired by a slew of new clients that have all been illustrators. So much great use of shape and color with simple line work. It relieves the pressure.
