If you truly want to confuse your metabolism (and really, who doesn’t?) then come this Saturday on a calorie burning bike ride to Harlem, pig out on some BBQ, knock back a beer or two, watch a Slideluck Bikeshow about bikecycles (featuring moi), and then partially undo the damage you’ve done by riding home, all the while wishing you were in a cab.

If you’ve been following this here blog, you might have noticed that I’ve been writing semi-compulsively about soccer, and since I can’t come up with a good reason to stop, I want to deliver two additions to recent posts.
#1: The Grand Street Wanderers finally managed to overcome their playoff choking habit and win the semi-final and final in two thrilling games in one afternoon. Of course you might remember some of these blue clad handsome devils from the Chinatown Ballers project.
We had Chris stonewalling the opposition despite playing with a broken thumb,…
…Tomas organizing the defense by the sheer power of his mighty beard,…
…Matt driving the non-paying fans insane with a sensational header goal,…
…and Gus working his Brazilian magic despite his style being seriously cramped by cramps.
And even though the cup was small and of golden plastic, it sure felt sweet.
#2: This one is concerning the recent F.C. Williamsburg post. While putting the pics together for that post I was desperately looking for an image by Volker Hinz that I’ve seen years ago in a book, but that I could not find in the netting of the inter for the life of me. In a weird piece of serendipity Stern republished it on it’s website this week, and so here it is: Two great football icons chatting in the showers, with shampoo in their hair, and with full view of the Kaiser’s buns and Pele’s ronaldinho. Holy Moly.
Yours truly (which is Moi) got invited by an illustrious group of fellow photographers, called (simply enough) the Photogroup to do a little Show-and-Tell at the Soho Photo Gallery on Wednesday evening. I’ll be showing about 40 images, alongside Howard Schatz, Michael Morrison, Harvey Stein, and Tomaas.
The Photogroup includes (watch out: more name dropping) Jay Maisel, Bill Westheimer, Rich Pomerantz, Emmanuel Faure, Jack Reznicki, David Hodgson,and Howard Schatz, fine shooters one and all. Except for Howard they won’t be showing work that evening, but I’m excited to meet them nontheless.
Hope you can swing by and have a look.
