Harpo Productions

Today's lesson in history:

From Chief Justice appointments to Hooters settling discrimination suits, September 30 is quite an eventful day. In fact, I'd like to say that September seems to spawn an unusual amount incidents. Take September 8th for example; it's the birthdate of my Mom, my half-sister, two of my mom's friends, and Country Club's very own Triangle Head. And just when you thought you had enough, the next day after party of captain stabby himself surfaced to life in 1987. But today, I'd like to send a shout out to one of the leading ladies of Country Clubbin, Janelle! Happy birthday, and for all you other scumbags out there, keep your Saturday free, cuz we gettin tore back!

And to keep just a little BMX in this piece, I saw this and didn't really want it to get swept in the tsunami of web videos that ebb and flow to The Come Up shores. Super good dude from Portland, Maine. Tell me when THAT trip is going down, i got mad family out there!

Welcome to "Getting to know your scumbag!"

Miguel Aguilera interview from kirk on Vimeo.

As the hub of all things relevant to BMX and the key to life itself, there seems to still be a little confusion as to what Country Clubbin is all about. In many ways, it is a cheap 40 oz. But I think it goes a little bit deeper than that... possibly to 120 oz. And if you really want to go beyond the unknown and freakish, I would strongly encourage you to go passed the classic deal of 3 for $5, and explore realms 160 oz, maybe even 100 million oz's deep! It's a crazy place man, time warps, pillows defy gravity by sticking to your face, and yes, lots of blood. Which segues into our first and hopefully last segment of getting to know your scumbag. I found this startling but important video with Miguel, AKA the Mexicutio(gnar). So feel enlightened, and check out some videos on that dude's page, some are pretty rad.

The proudest moment of my life, thus far...

First, we have a picture of Chi-chi, the newest member of the country club family. Secondly, and far more importantly, we have THE VERY FIRST COUNTRY CLUBBIN EXCLUSIVE!!!! I think it premiered at interbike last night, but I'll have to check with the SC contingency that migrated down that way. Come get some, please!

Those who live by the sword die by the bullet

If all goes to plan (and thanks to a donation from Jackson Allen and Aaron Doolittle for cranks bars and forks) I will be shredding by Saturday, been a month since I've rode a bike, 'bout time.

Couldn't be sooner, all this constant drunkness is making me a fucking gordle pie

This is a pretty epic way to die

Police in George, WA issued a report on the events leading up to the deaths of Robert Uhlenake (24) and his friend, Ormond D. Young (27) at the Metallica concert last Friday. Uhlenake and Young were found dead at the Gorge Amphitheater after the show.

Uhlenake was near a pickup that was on top of Young at the bottom of a 20 ft drop. Young was found with severe lacerations, numerous fractures, contusions, and a branch in his anal cavity. He also had been stabbed and his pants were in a tree above him, some 15 ft off the ground adding to the mystery of the heretofore unexplained scene.

According to Commissioner-In-Charge Inoye Appleton, Uhlenake and Young had tried to get tickets for the sold-out concert. When they were unable to get any tickets, the two decided to stay in the lot and drink.

Once the show began, and after the two had consumed 18 beers between the two of them, they hit upon the idea of scaling the 7 foot wooden security fence around the perimeter of the site and sneak in.

They apparently moved the truck up to the edge of the fence and decided that Young would go over first and assist Uhlenake later. They had not counted on the fact that while it was a 7 foot fence on the parking lot side, there was a 23 foot drop on the other side.

Young, who weighed 255 lbs and was quite inebriated, had jumped up and over the fence and promptly fell about half the 23 foot distance before a large tree branch broke his fall AND his left forearm; unfortunately, he also managed to get his shorts caught on the branch.

Since he was now in a lot of pain and with no way to extricate himself and his shorts from the tree, he decided, seeing bushes down below, to cut his shorts off and fall to the ground. Upon cutting the last bit of fabric from himself, he suddenly plummeted to earth, losing grip of the knife. The "soft" bushes were actually holly bushes and landing in them caused a massive number of cuts. He also had the misfortune of landing squarely on a holly bush branch; effectively impaling himself.

The knife, which he had accidentally released 15 ft up, now landed and stabbed him in his left thigh. Apparently, he was in a lot of pain. Enter his friend Robert. Uhlenake had apparently observed the last bit of this and, despite his inebriated state, realized that Young was in trouble.

He hit upon the idea of lowering a rope to his friend and pull him up and over the fence. This was complicated by the fact that Uhlenake was outweighed by his friend by a good 100 lbs.

Again, despite his state he realized he could use their truck to pull Young out. Unfortunately, because of his state, Uhlenake put the truck in reverse, rather than drive, broke through the fence, landed on Young (killing him). Uhlenake was thrown out of the truck and subsequently died of internal injuries.

"So that's how a dead 255 lb man with no pants on, with a truck on top of him and a stick up his ass came to be" said Commissioner Appleton

Found! / Still missing

Andrew's bike was recovered in near perfect condition, minus a sweet ass red spraypaint job and a USPC decal, fuck yeah

My T1 is still on the loose though, most likely rolling around santa cruz in an equally awesome color, so keep and eye out. The good news is this means it is most likely still in town....

its got left side drive so that should be a dead give away if spotted from some distance

Good Blog

This has nothing to do with BMX but it is extremely worth while read in my book. I actually find the only true interesting thing about BMX to be riding itself. Who the hell wants to look at Bike weights and seat post geometry online?

This is a blog written by "Freeway Ricky" from his jail cell who at one point was making ~ 3million dollars a day From Los Angeles.

Articulate and an interesting perspective
