CM Boise is Dead maybe it was never really alive, but after Friday's poor excuse for a ride turnout Jackson and I decided to call it quits, which means that Boise no longer has a Critical Mass Bike Ride. But wait! It's not as sad as it might sound, because one of the main reasons we decided to go defunct (besides the fact that nobody was coming out and the few people that were were all becoming disillusioned) is because there is another downtown Boise bike ride that is actually having success and is actually shutting down some car traffic, which is awesome! It's called the Downtown Bike Shutdown and it takes place every third Saturday at 9:30 pm. Yeah, it's late, but that's the point: to become The Cruise - even if it means getting punched in the face by a meathead on a crotch rocket. Apparently bicyclists have been showing up in droves for this ride (anywhere from 75 to over a hundred) and it has only been going on for about 2-3 months. So yeah, if you want to join a group ride that's actually happening, get your bike in gear and head over to the Capitol Building on Saturday, June 18 at 9:30pm. Hopefully I'll see you there. Also, check them out on MySpace:

The Geek Is Back

Can you believe it? I'm putting out another issue of The Family Geek. I thought that zine was dead for good....but no, it's been revived somehow. Even though I changed the name of my publishing company from The Family Geek Press to Juniperbug Productions, I still found some reason to keep The Family Geek zine going. It's hard to let a good zine die. So, issue #3 is really simple (just like the last two). It includes zine updates, a couple of CD reviews and some interesting random stuff that you might like to know about, but maybe not. As usual, it will only set you back a stamp (well actually two, because you'll have to use a stamp to send me a stamp, but either way...). Order a copy today... it should be done within a week now that school's out.
