Bike Tube Blow-outs Scare Hipsters
This is too precious. Maybe written by the mechanic who serviced this tool? iaminlikewithmybike: davidbaylor: So there’s one remaining problem with my bike. And it’s huge. Blow outs. The first one happened while walking back from the bike shop, thankfully not during a ride. It was loud. Gunshot loud, which explains how it basically broke my heart. I am very attached to this bike. I...

Men.Style.com: A really interesting interview with...
Men.Style.com: You were there to witness the strange evolution in Michael's appearance. Did you ever step in and saying anything about it?
Quincy Jones: Oh, we talked about it all the time. But he'd come up with, "Man, I promise you I have this disease," and so forth, and "I have a blister on my lungs," and all that kind of b.s. It's hard, because Michael's a Virgo, man—he's very set in his ways. You can't talk him out of it. Chemical peels and all that stuff.
MSC: Did you believe him about the disease?
QJ: I don't believe in any of that bullshit, no. No. Never. I've been around junkies and stuff all my life. I've heard every excuse. It's like smokers—"I only smoke when I drink" and all that stuff. But it's bullshit. You're justifying something that's destructive to your existence. It's crazy. I mean, I came up with Ray Charles, man. You know, nobody gonna pull no wool over my eyes. He did heroin 20 years! Come on. And black coffee and gin for 40 years. But when he called me to come over to see him when he was in the hospital on his way out, man, he had emphysema, hepatitis C, cirrhosis of the liver, and five malignant tumors. Please, man! I've been around this all my life. So it's hard for somebody to pull the wool over my eyes. But when somebody's hell-bent on it, you can't stop 'em.
MSC: But it must've been so disturbing to see Michael's face turn into what it turned into.
QJ: It's ridiculous, man! Chemical peels and all of it. And I don't understand it. But he obviously didn't want to be black.
MSC: Is that what it was?
QJ: Well, what do you think? You see his kids?
MSC: Did you ever discuss it? Did you ever ask, "Michael, don't you want to be a black man?"
QJ: No, no, no, please. That's not the way you do it.

I wonder if this has ever happened in the US? United States police officers don’t fuck around with their dogs. They are actual officers themselves. Nutty to the extreme but it would have prevented this.
