About Me

Bonfires, bicycle races, warehouse raves, road trips, socialism, neon signs, smoky pool halls, old motorcycles, film, hitchiking, reading about history, the labor movement, freshly rained-on city streets, arguing and laughing at the same time, stumbling across new bands that are amazing, dancing, gambling, drinking cheap beer or fancy cocktails, not talking to the police, planning the revolution

Las hogueras, las carreras de bicicletas, las raves del almacén, los viajes por carretera, el socialismo, los letreros de neón, los clubes de billar ahumados, las viejas motocicletas, el cine, el carruaje, la lectura sobre la historia, el movimiento obrero, recién llovido en las calles de la ciudad, discutiendo y riendo al mismo tiempo, tropezando con nuevas bandas que son increíbles, bailando, juegos de azar, beber cerveza barata o cócteles de lujo, no hablar con la policía, la planificación de la revolución

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Solo road trip from Toronto to NOLA and back. Wild times.
