Brian Vernor & bike beauty

Currently home in Corvallis, visiting moma and seeing her new place. I have great ambitions to get outside and take advantage of my pristine, unbeatable locale and go on a couple of long rides, but so far today I’ve been waylaid by the internet. So, here’s a shoutout to cycling photographer and general rockstar Brian Vernor. His photography is beautiful (Oregon is featured in many of his shots) and I own and cherish one of his films, Pure Sweet Hell (check it out!). I found myself (re)perusing his website after coming across a preview for his newest film release, Where Are You Go. The link on his website takes you to the site for NYC’s Bicycle Film Festival. Last year’s festival featured another of Vernor’s short co-films, Goodbye Tomorrow. This one also features material from his four month voyage across Africa, though it was cut in 10 days and released almost immediately after their arrival in the states, in time for BFF2008. Anyway, check out the preview for Where Are You Go below. It looks amazing.

That’s it, I’m moving

It’s finals week at Reed. Students are given to fits of craziness. They–we–deserve to be humored. However, my newest daydream (when I’m avoiding papers) & threat to my friends (when I’m feeling desperate) is not fleeting, nor is it born of fancy.

Guys: I’m moving to Vauban.
Similarly, I’m dropping out of Reed and going to UBI instead.
