Greenway Art

Don't know who's responsible for these but they've been up since this spring and surprisingly nobody has fucked with them yet. Which is both respectful/cool and contrary to our recently stated feelings about art.


Dear BNB, Where are you???

Apparently BNB has writer's block. Like you, we're getting sick of all the Franco, Just Franco shit and graffiti pics. Something to read would be nice for a change, huh? Help us all out and send a question to Dear BNB at bnb@hotdogdayz.com. Or, if you think you have what it takes, send something Reader Submitted to the same address. Do it, and for God's sake, do it now.

You know, just the other day he told me the people at his work call him the King of Cardigans. Seriously? What an ass.

Totes Quotes 7/27/10

Got a late-night text from TDH over the weekend. A little on the cryptic side, but I can still guess what he was up to...no good:

"Thank god it was totally dark in that room."
-The Darkhorse

Our girl Doomy is contributing enough stuff that we're not titling it Reader Submitted anymore. She's pretty much a member of the team at this point. Well anyway, this time she took the advice of something an anonymous internet commenter said about not feeling pressure "to write to lowbrow humor or ironic sexism to impress us"...and still ended up impressing us.

This is meant to be an homage to a spoken word cassette tape my friend Levi gave me in maybe 2002. I can't remember the girl's name nor can I find the tape. She was all punk rock and told stories about being a punk in 70s and 80s New York or LA. It was pretty cool. She had some weird name like Patience or Melody or something...

my brain hurts today*

I'm going to break kayfabe here. In real life I'm a pretty nice guy. And I'm not a huge fan of real life violence. I like my shit in a contained sport environment like pro wrestling or MMA. BUT. Should you think it's a good idea to try to push and/or grab me off of my bike when I'm peacefully minding my own business, just pedaling along: well then, I'll do my best to fuck you up. And then after I cracked you in your jaw and you're snoring like a little baby, I'll let the adrenaline settle just long enough to take pictures of your knocked-out ass and put them on the internets.

The History of Punk-Part 2

Compiled from more old shit...

I did a quick weekend budget plan before leaving work on Friday. I somehow managed to squeeze "getting the new Bad Brains disc" onto my post-it note spreadsheet.

Me plus record store equals me spending more money than I should.

After all, they may have an old Cinderella, Bullet Boys or Britny Fox record.

Purple Rain is one of the reasons I live in Minneapolis.

What keeps me young? Punk rock, hip hop, bikes, art, "the kids." Sound familiar? Same broken record…over…and over…and over…and over…and over…and over…

I Spent 7th grade trying to figure out how to get in chicks' pants.

Youth culture and an unceasing pursuance of the good times. It's my burden. "It's my cross to bear." Perhaps it will lead to my eventual downfall. Perhaps it already has. Like the sticker says: "It's all good."

Mpls, MN, circa fall 2005

Totes Quotes 7/20/10

Some sartorial advice for those on the prowl:

"When you're standing in front of the mirror, trying on outfits for the evening, it's best to do so with a drink in your hand. That way you'll see exactly what the ladies will see."
-Christian Lyter (AKA Anonymous)
