I’ve wanted to get out to do a gravel grinder for the past seven years. I finally made it happen this year at the Dirty Kanza, where I rode the Half Pint–maybe I’ll do the 200 next year. Read the story I published on Road Bike Review and MTBR about my 8.5-hour ride here:

A week after I met up with Jon Fitch at the new, fully pimped out American Kickboxing Academy to do the interview for this piece, Fitch’s beloved bulldog, Bricks, died.

FHM Jack LaLanne Q and A June 2003 p 72-73

It took me a minute to get around to posting this, but dug out this interview I did with Jack LaLanne in San Luis Obispo at his home in March 2003 for the June 2003 issue of FHM. Jack was rad. Meeting him was a pleasure and an inspiration. He was still a muscle-bound badass when I met him and as he appears to have been until the end of his life.

Before we started our interview, Jack offered me $10,000 if I could perform a single push-up. No sweat, you’re thinking, right? So was I, so I banged out a push-up. Then he showed me what he meant by a push-up. Fully prone lying on the belly with arms extended straight in front of the body, then push up. I gave it a shot. No fucking way. He had a good laugh, inquired about whom I was dating and settled into a recliner to hold court. Had a great sense of humor, sharp, humble, and fully committed to inspiring other human beings to rise to their full potential. Badass. Legend. Continue reading

Los Angeles Times: Bicycle Kitchen Nov 2, 2003

This story first appeared in the Los Angeles Times Magazine ‘Fixations’ section in November, 2003. I had an awesome, progressive editor at the time, Christina Dalton, who gave me the latitude to dial Angelenos into some of the coolest, most cutting edge shit happening on the fringes of various subcultures in Los Angeles. No idea what Christina is up to now, but high 5, Christina, thanks for that. Much appreciated.

I first heard about the Bicycle Kitchen through friends at Skylight Books in Los Feliz, just down the block from my Franklin Ave. hovel at the time. Continue reading
