The Move

I hate moving. Why do I do it so much? This is my last post from Cedar City. We should be finished here by early afternoon. I think I just barely passed math 1050. Before the final I was honestly hovering at 70.3% so hopefully I got at least a C on the final... or I will be dropping out of school forever. See everyone up there. I can feel the gridlock traffic already.

There is only a week of school left and I will be moving back up north to finish at UVU. The benefits will be numerous.

#1- Employment
#2- Family
#3- Friends
#4- Post-rock band
#5- Record/perform solo project
#6- Wait for it... Join a biker gang.

Davy's frequent references to restoring or converting old bikes has rekindled my bikelust. On my mission I built myself a bike during my spare time after my bike was stolen... twice. I learned quite a bit about bike mechanics during that little foray. Now I want to build the ultimate commuter. Well today marked a big step. I was down in St George picking up some stuff from my cousin, Ken, and I made a stop at DI... Ladies and gentlemen, I give you my latest purchase:

15 dollars later, I am the proud owner of a 1974 Schwinn Varsity.

The original seat is in pretty good condition.

It comes complete with a non-functioning speedometer which I hope to salvage

...also a Salt Lake bicycle license decal and a kickstand

I am trying to decide now whether to convert it to a one speed or to restore it to its ten speed glory. SCIENCE HOVER RIDERS LIVE!

I'm Listening to Pet Sounds

I love pop music. I love sixties album art. I love goats. I love groundbreaking production. I love Pet Sounds.
