Yeah bring me champagne when I'm thirsty.

Bring me reefer when I want to get high.

Yeah bring me champagne when I'm thirsty.

Bring me reefer when I want to get high. 

Well you know it's good for your head

And it relax your body till it's your turn to lay down and die.

last call for 2015

be safe and have a ball

It was 1907. A 700 pound, iron and wood, 100 lightbulb ball dropped for the first time in Times Square. By 1920 it was 400 pounds of cast iron.

In 1942 and ‘43 it did not drop, honoring wartime energy rationing. Those years chimes were broadcast, literally “ringing out the old and in the new.”

By 1955 it reduced to 200 pounds of pure aluminum skin and glass. Sounds so ’50’s! 

By 1978 it had lost its skin.

Later it got more lightbulbs, but was still very old school.

From 1981-1988 under Mayor Ed Koch it became an Apple, 
part of the


Then in 1995 it received an aluminum skin again, with rhinestones and for the first time, computer controls.

Today it weighs a whopping 11,875 pounds and is technically a 12 foot geodesic sphere.

It’s covered in 2,688 Waterford Crystals and internally lit by LED’s.

Life takes balls. Bring your best.

Happy New Year!

even Santa

My first-ever scoot was a free, crushed and bent 1968 Triumph Bonneville my Dad “and I” somewhat straightened, and got back on the road.

I was 16 that Summer.

It was insane, like piloting a weaving upright piano. 

I was terrified. But I liked it.

So this new Thruxton sings songs to my heart.

A modern version of a direct descendant. 

Perfect size.

I want one.
