6'1" and about 33". That would be great.

Sorry for not getting back, I have spent the last couple of days with my head in some spreadsheets I am working on for some grant money. I am now in town but didn't bring helmet or lock and not so sure about locking a bike up down round here anyway. So I think I will stick to shanks pony for this trip, although having got here and seen the hills and the lovely temperate weather I will regret this.

Must organise things better next time.

No problem, lmk if u change your mind.

Sunday at the YBCA (not far from your hotel) is a mid-day showing of A SUNDAY IN HELL (tho dv not film) which would be a good alternative to not doing any biking right?

I noticed that and think I shall attend as I have never seen it and would be awesome.

(In compensation for no bike I walked to the ocean, which was pretty awesome).

Mornington Crescent (Ed), Saturday, 8 August 2009 03:17 (eleven years ago) link

Ed, dude, even yanks don't say "awesome" that much.

I shall move on to saying "capital".

"A Sunday in Hell" was a most capital documentary. So much so that I have ordered the DVD. I didn't expect it to be so funny, the soundrach of the choir signing "paris", "Roubaix" and "Pavé" is very entertaining, fantastic insight into the race and riders though.

Some Youtube, however I am glad we had the subtitled version.

Mornington Crescent (Ed), Wednesday, 12 August 2009 19:22 (eleven years ago) link

seen this but forgot about how ridiculous the moto interference appeared, its like motorpace roubaix.

Also a good demonstration of why earpieces are a good idea. The cars driving up into the peleton are terrifying.

caek, Sunday, 22 November 2009 00:33 (eleven years ago) link

thx2u. Ed and I saw it as mentioned upthread, but I need to see it again because I missed out on a critical 15-20 minutes due to nodding off lol.

♪♫(●̲̲̅̅̅̅=̲̲̅̅̅̅●̲̅̅)♪♫ (Steve Shasta), Sunday, 22 November 2009 00:44 (eleven years ago) link

Do we have a bike film thread? because I watched Chasing Legends tonight (HTC centric doc on the 09 tour) and would like to talk about it but only in the correct thread.

i love you but i have chosen snarkness (Steve Shasta), Wednesday, 17 November 2010 04:54 (ten years ago) link

Don't think we do. I still need to see this.

American Fear of Pranksterism (Ed), Wednesday, 17 November 2010 04:55 (ten years ago) link

Perhaps our mod rename this thread to something more cinematic in nature?

i love you but i have chosen snarkness (Steve Shasta), Wednesday, 17 November 2010 04:57 (ten years ago) link

Who is our mod?

American Fear of Pranksterism (Ed), Wednesday, 17 November 2010 04:58 (ten years ago) link

Pash iirc, although you should be.*

*Unless all mods are supposed to be really obnoxious and fly off then handle at any given opportunity in which case I would nominate myself.

jaxon, Wednesday, 17 November 2010 06:32 (ten years ago) link

Whadda film.

Mark C, Wednesday, 17 November 2010 11:00 (ten years ago) link

i'm a mod, but don't actually know how to retitle threads!

paging steven shasta

did you see it in IMAX?

cozen, Wednesday, 17 November 2010 18:04 (ten years ago) link

I did not, although I did see it at a beautiful historic beaux-arts style theater that has a massive screen. Not sure if the film was 35 or 70mm but it looked really clean (the sound on the other hand seems pretty muffled and muted at times).

"La Course en Tete"
considered to be a finer film than A Sunday In Hell

i love you but i have chosen snarkness (Steve Shasta), Wednesday, 2 February 2011 02:10 (ten years ago) link

also can we change the thread title?

who runs this joint?
