shit that keeps me alive ( a product review)

So before I left Vancouver I got some gear to help ward off the -35 fuck show which is being a bike messenger in montreal. Among these Items are these three pieces. So in an effort to enlighten you as to how much  they do or do not suck heres a review.

first up mec cyclone tights $69:
ok so these are basically my favorite thing ever and I highly recommend them to anyone needing a waterproof,  simple, tough and cheap pair of cycling pants.
at 69 bucks they're hard to beat, i wear them under my black jeans and thus no one notices they're super dorky looking.
Next mec expedition weight long johns $37:
while they sell for 37 dollars they're worth about as much as the ball crust they accumulate after a few days work ie: not very much.
they're not warm and fall apart there for save your money and get some army surplus shit.
Rocky goretex sock $65:
ok well 65 dollars for socks is really fucked, i agree but you know what.. dry feet are priceless.
they keep your feet really warm as well i assume cause they trap body heat and what not,who knows. one thing i do know  is after a day of mobbing around in slush, salt and shit my feet stay dry. my only complaint is that the cuff around the top falls off, no biggie though cause your no idiot, just sew that shit back on.....
some people i know complain that these leak, however, i haven't had any problems other then the smell currently eminating from mine.

 I hope this has been educational, maybe i'll do some more reviews in the future i wreck alot of shit so I got a fairly good idea what sucks..

excerpts from the hobo code.

while this is by no means the entire hobo code, I feel that these are some of the more relevant points pertaining to my life:

1. decide your own life,don't let another person run or rule you.
3. don't take advantage of someone who is in a vulnerable situation,locals or other hobos.
5. when no employment is available, make your own work by using your added talents at crafts.
8. always respect nature,do not leave garbage when you are jungling.
10. try to stay clean and boil up whenever possible.
15. help your fellow hobos whenever and wherever needed, you may need their help someday.

I feel these points can be used in situations beyond being a hobo and will help you live a better life.....
gotta go ride my bike now, theres some shit brewing for the spring time and i gotta get back on point.

things that get me stoked.

I thought i'd share a few things with you today that i feel are radical:
inspiring art kids who go on neat adventure on boats made of garbage(enough said)
Andrew mosley
my bud drew can really draw and paint, hes super positive and gets me stoked to make work of my own, above is a drawing of his. he also is a kick ass carpenter and as soon as he move to montreal were gonna stop the earth from turning when our creative juices bro down.
This kid torey lives in NYC and rides a track bike very well, it seems as well that he is very good at pretty much everything else and hes got a great "tude".
Salt and Peppa and their song none of your buisness...... current favorite song..get stoked!

  One of the things i've always wanted to do is race in NYC. Now that i'm on the east coast thats gonna happen....monster track 10 get excited...

   For anyone who complains about the weather.... consider working as a messenger in montreal, i think it was about -30 this day.

happy new year.....first post


So alots changed in the last year, i'm back to messengering, i've moved halfway across the country, and my focus has totally changed.
for those who don't know, i recently packed up a uhaul and the car and drove across canada to see what montreal is all about, it's been a great change so far and while i miss all my buds back in vancouver and the warm temps i'm excited about all the possibilities here in the frozen east.
we'll see what 2009 has to offer, at the very least 'll be out of vancouver for 2010.
