A good quote

I like this quote from Gary Vaynerchuck,

"Don’t quit your job to become the queen of cheese. But if you’re doing something that blows and you hate it, go work at 7-Eleven to pay your bills and spend every other hour building your personal plan. If you work 9 AM to 6 PM and get home at 7, whatever you put in between 7 and 3 AM is what you’re gonna get in return. You want to watch Lost? Knock yourself out. I don’t watch shit. I don’t read shit. I’m all about my community and putting out content. I don’t consume. I put out."

Suburban Douchebag

So after I went on a run this morning, I was sitting around, drinking coffee, and listening to Morning Edition on NPR. They were running a story about gas prices, and interviewed this guy who is spending over $200/week on gas. Why is he spending that much? First, he lives a 1/2 hour from his work and so does his wife. He has five kids. He says he requires TWO Ford Expeditions to get everyone around. Are you kidding me? Buy a minivan douche bag. Move close to where you live and find a school near by for your kids. Insanity!

$4.04 a gallon?

I got to say I'm glad I am car free nowadays with the insane price of gas. I don't think I'd be using the S10 that much if I still had it. Also makes me glad that Pete and I got The Randonnee Shop going, I have a feeling a lot more people will start biking to get around town, and they're going to want comfortable seats while doing it and panniers to hold their junk.

I can't wait until June 25th. Why? Its Boulder Bike & Walk to Work Day, which means free breakfast for all! I wish it was every day.

Exciting Week For The Internet

This has been an exciting week for the internet. First, The Randonnee Shop launched, which will undoubtedly change the way people buy Brooks saddles and Ortlieb panniers in this country. Second, an hour or so ago Apple announced the new iPhone, which looks insanely awesome. I will be getting one July 26th, the day my Verizon contract expires. Not only is the internet twice as fast on it as the old phone, it comes with GPS built in, its thinner, the battery lasts longer, and is either $199 or $299 for 8GB or 16GB.

Not exactly sure how good the GPS is, but it apparently gives directions to you which means its got to be pretty accurate. Looks like Apple might have put out of business Garmin and all the other GPS makers...
