Pause Ponder and Pedal Files

Okay, sorry, that was a terrible pun in the title. But, hey, it's what you've come to expect from me. And I'd hate to let you down.

I wouldn't want to have been this guy. Look at the panic on his face. Although I guess, judging from your entires this week, its not his face that he should be worried about.

Early versions of Optimus Prime really kind of sucked

Bike sex: Illegal everywhere except Germany

Fred Knievel's daredevil career was never quite as successful
as his big brother, Evel's.

All good captions, my friends. But it was KABLOOEY that was just a little more out there this week with...

Harry Dean Stanton, two weeks after that tenth DWI bust cost him his license.

Okay, KABLOOEY. Way to go my friend. I'm happy to provide you with your big "brake"
(heh, heh). This week you be hangin' with dufus. Hurrah, hurrah. Yadda, yadda, yadda.

Thanks to everyone for playing. And now that I've gotten over that little episode last week, we'll see you next week for our next PPP, same time, same blog.

What? I'm the first to comment?? Oy!

Congrats to Kablooey! And congrats to the honourables, as well.

I really had nothing this week ... well, I did, but it invovled s... snot - yeah, that it, snot!

00dozo: Yeah, we know you felt like a bag of snot, right.

Eeek, at first I thought you were pushing (pun) that Pedal Files For Dummies book that Amazon recently yanked off (pun?) their list.

Thank goodness I was wrong.

And a big congradumalations to our dear Kabloosters!

Quirks: I'd never head of that book. Just seemed like a funny pun, albeit in extremely bad taste. But hey we're looking for blogs that taste good, not ones with good taste, right?

Oh, YES! I'm really happy to accept the award, especially since I came thisclose to never getting to win one, since Dufus was thinking about ending it all. (Man, that came out wrong... ) But I'm so glad he's staying in the game, and that others will get to know the thrill of victory. I've spent many weeks being that "agony of defeat" guy, careening down that icy slope. (Anyone? I know Dufus will get the reference.) Oh, yeah: I'd like to thank Dufus, and God.

KABLOOEY: Dufus and God? Wow, have I ever come up in the world. Oh...and never was Slovenia's Vinko Bogataj more famous than the years he spent flying off the ski jump on ABC's weekly Wide World of Sports. I guess now you can say you're no Vinko Bogataj!
I can't believe I got an honorable mention. Thanks, NoName!

Mike: You must be on a roll. Um...wait a minute, I'm confusing you with butter.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
