Remember your / your dad’s / your grampa’s Sting-Ray? I don’t either, but here’s a short history. Its precursor was owner-modification – remove and reverse the handle bars from an old Huffy, angle them upwards like steer horns and remove the plastic grips; then hit it with sandpaper so it rusts and looks badass. Gears? You got one, and hand brakes were for pussies. Clip playing cards to the forks with clothespins for motor sounds. If you scored a Sting-Ray, the next thing was to save up for a sissy bar so you could pop wheelies effortlessly and be the envy of the kickball crowd.
Batbot is cool.

Nobody’s gonna walk away with that bike.
Pointless vandalism. Jerks.
On a lighter note, there’s this. The Avalanche’s “Since I Left You.” I like it, not so much for the music, but the vid has a nice storyline with a clever twist at the end (h/t ryannon). The song reminded me of this grooviness:
Malo‘s 1972 hit “Suavecito.” Malo was a San Fransisco band led by Jorge Santana, Carlos’ brother. Rather than pick another sappy hit from that year (like Chuck Berry’s “My Ding-a-Ling“) let’s try this:
Carlos Santana‘s “Nowhere to Run” from a 1982 concert promoted by Apple founder Steve Wozniak. Now let’s jump forward another ten years to 1992.
And with that we’re outta here. Have a great weekend, folks, and be back here tomorrow for more fun.
