It’s time for another video that lets you laugh at (other people’s) danger. You don’t need a motorcycle to fail. These folks prove it. Small horsepower bikes and pea-brained decisions seem to go hand in hand. Remember kids, don’t try this at home.
Because he’s riding a scooter down Congress Street in Portland, and he knows safety is priority number one, of course.
As a personal followup, I couldn’t resist having my eyes and ears on hand for Brad Terry’s 78th birthday show in Brunswick Tuesday night. The night of really fine jazz also marked his final gig with 20-something guitar phenom Peter Herman, who left the next day to seek his fortune on the west coast. After […]
Andrew Tevanian of the Prides Corner Drive-In has started a series of videos to promote his family business. He puts his fearless brand of eccentricity to its highest and best use in the short clips. In the above piece, promoting the latest dinosaur flick, he sports safari clothes and binoculars as he warns us all […]
