A Flower Called Nowhere 

You really gotta check this blog out, it's called A Flower Called Nowhere, and is full of "bike commuting and smirking malcontentedness". Many of Stacey's posts speak deeply to me about living life fully, playing in the rain like a kid, taking no bullshit, and rejecting the values of mainstream overworked and bought culture. Inspirational for sure.

Oh and he has a yellow bike, with radical stickers like mine too, neat. Sometimes you gotta find some niche in life, and those spaces can get really deep before you find a voice that speaks the same tongue. Within all the bike commuting sites out there, this is one that speaks the tongue of the malcontents, alternative culture seekers, and living with purpose not just for acquiring the big car and house. Much appreciated thought.

SONG OF THE DAY: "Full Fathom Five" by The Stone Roses

Music Meme from Bicycle-Eye 

Never did this before on my blog, but I'll Play along.

1. Total amount of music on computer?
An infinitesimally small amount. I'm not into the digital music thing yet, but there are a few albums ended up on there from when I copied them to share. I used to load some up on my computer at work, when I was in my last full-time office gig, from CDs I brought from home.

2. CD you last bought?
Well I guess Loretta Lynn's Van Lear Rose even though it was bought for me by Sue, but will have to do since I can't remember the last I bought for myself. Might have been Frogholler's Railings.

3. What is the song you last listened to before reading this message?
Some Classic Rock deal flipping through the stations on my way home from family today after getting off the talk radio stations and just before getting home, can't remember the name, or don't know the name. Last I listened to on the way to family last Friday was James' Hymn from a Village from thier live album first disc. Am not counting all the patriotic stuff heard over the weekend.

4. 5 songs you often listen to, or which mean a lot to you?

James - Out to Get You
Uncle Tupelo - Steal the Crumbs
Poison - Life Loves a Tragedy (not so much now, but oh back in the day)
Pearl Jam - Yellow Ledbetter
World Party - She's the One

Thanks to Bicycle-Eye for the game. Uh, I don't know who to tag, let's try it backwards. Be tagged if you may, cycling reader or blogger, and meme away, then let me know, and I'll post your link here. Peace.
