For like 3 years now I have wanted to get one of these PediCabs and pedal the tourists around Downtown and C-Park. They are not that expensive and I think people would really dig it. Hell, those goofy bike rentals they had last year were everywhere. You can't tell me there aren't 4 times as more lazy folks who would rather be pedaled around instead of actually using there own muscles.
From my web research I found Main Street Pedicabs in Broomfield, Colorado. They seem to be the best of the bunch and the bike pictured above starts at $3400.00.
Would any of you PDD'ers want to go in on something like this. It would be good exercise and some pocket change to boot.
Let me know. Summer starts in about a month and a half.
Here is some random footage from last weekends Free Democracy Summit. I also have the complete speech given by Jim Hightower. Does anyone have any interest in seeing that? It would be a fairly big download.

OK, so through a means I explained on my video blog, I acquired two garbage bags of photos that originally appeared in the Budgeteer News during the mid-90s and earlier. And let me tell you, every single one of them is a gem.
Naturally, my one thought was to fire up the scanner. Thank me very much.
I'll be posting a new batch of them weekly on my "Caption This" album on Flickr. I invite all of you to come play the captioning game, or at least check them out for a good guffaw. These are your friends and neighbors, folks. You may recognize them. And even if you don't, they're so, so awesome.
To kick off our fancy, new four page format, the Transistor will celebrate the best way we know how: FREE BEER for the masses from Lake Superior Brewing Company.

I walked out here the other evening. It was warm and sunny with light fog and as far as I could tell, I was the only one around. Does anyone know when those ore docks were built? Are they still used? What's the crumbling brick silo-thingy out here (not in picture)? Does anyone else think Duluth is one of the coolest places to look at in the world?
So, last night I was driving along Michigan St downtown, and was talking about an interview on Fresh Air, I heard recently, by this fellow, Robert Sullivan, who had just spent a lot of time observing rats, and published a book called "Rats". When what should appear, but the first rat I have seen in Duluth. It was much bigger then this example, more like feline size.
Stuff like this happens to me all the time, I am no longer surprised by it.
Friday's podcast featured pdd co-founder Barrett Chase (30 mb - 1/2 hr - mp3)
so my dilemma is, i used to work upstairs and take treats from the upstairs breakroom. i always got to pig out on as many doughnuts or cookies or banana bread as i wanted, because there aren't many people upstairs. sometimes i would envy a downstairs treat, when i'd go in there for pop or something, but i rarely took a treat from downstairs because i felt like they were for the guys in the shop even though the guys say they're for anyone.
now i work downstairs. today there are like, three boxes of treats. i want two items! okay, i already ate one while typing this (a chocolate chip muffin), and now i want to go back for that nutty brownie i saw in there. is that wrong?

Those who use a feedlink, can you tell me if it worked automatically as it is suppose to? (still trying to iron out the bugs)
And those that may want a direct mp3 link . Again, about 1/2 hr show.
I went to Geek Prom 2003 dressed as Laura Croft (from the Tomb Raider game). I had a lot of costume elements and had the whole "Laura Croft" look down (albeit, the look of a fat, drunk Laura Croft who kept spilling her drinks, but Laura Croft nonetheless). It was a very fun evening.
Several weeks later, I had an interview for a web developer job. I had psyched myself up, and had my aura of "interview cool" on. When the interviewer came out to meet me, he cocked his head at an angle, looked at me, then asked "... Laura Croft?".
My "interview cool" was gone. He caught me so off guard that I stammered the way through the interview (and desperately tried to remember if I had done anything obnoxious to him at Geek Prom).
Needless to say, I did not get the job as a fat, drunk web developer. ;)
(Sorry about the gratuitous pussy shot)
Today or tomorrow I'll post a link to a brief RSS primer for those who may still be in the dark (what, perhaps 2 of you?).
OK... I think.
here is the first podcast address, for those of you who have the capabilities.
It is a 1/2 hr program. The full hour program just hated being loaded so I scaled it back. I will try to do 2 a week. It is starting with just a simple music/event format, and as I get more comfortable I hope to include some brief interviews and perhaps snips of local live music. If you have suggestion let me know.
If it doesn't work let me know. If I was a religious being I would offer up a prayer... as it is I will just wait.
I'm not sure how to promote this, so you may hear about it off and on for a few weeks until that is sorted out. Sorry in advance
Friday I tooled around on the dirt roads near
Then I came back and learned how to make podcasts, time consuming yet fun. But I have no place to really host ‘em so it may be a dead project.
Saturday, went and saw a few movies (can’t remember the last time I went to a movie).
I found a place that (most likely) will sell my photographs, so that is encouraging. And…
Went to see the Keepaways, loud and boisterous and fun. And it is always great entertainment watching moshers.
So I was up the shore at a rather small river on thursday when I heard a rumbling, booming behind me. I turned to see that the water level raised considerably and instantly and tons of huge slabs of ice came exploding down the river and out into the lake. I guess this happens every year in the spring when there is enough of a melt. Ice dams are formed up stream in any river or creek and could be miles away, with water building behind it until it finally bursts and it can have quite a forceful effect. One person I was talking to said he had been at the French river one time some years ago when this happened and claimed there was a 20 foot wall of water. Had to run to get out of the way. Amazing.
Here is the ice flowing out into the lake after it all came smashing down the river, now just a big slushy:
