A scraper bike is an ordinary bicycle that has been modified by its owner, typically with decorated spokes with candy-colored pinwheels and matching body and wheel colors, using tinfoil, re-used cardboard, candy wrappers and paint. Scraper bikes are credited for being popularized by Tyrone Stevenson in 2007 in Oakland, California,[1][2] and are an offshoot of the scraper culture of car modification.[3] The scraper bike gained notoriety in 2007 with the YouTube music video “Scraper Bikes” by Trunk Boiz.

The Scary, Batlike Hummingbirds of Golden Gate Park – And This Other One has a Costume for Halloween 2015

Friday, October 30th, 2015

This little critter startled me the other day, as it’s in the same bush where I saw a roof rat a few weeks back.

Dese boids generally have an all-carbs diet, but sometimes they need a little protein. This the last thing some spiders see:

Sort of looks like a bat to me.

But now it’s time for costumes. This little feller’s mantle is saying, “Hey ladies, look at me!”

(Hey, you know, speaking of scary, area Republican Ron Conway, through his interest in Pinterest, has made more money off of this shot than I have. Taken more than a decade ago with a $4500 camera and $4500 worth of glass it was. I’m in the wrong “business.”)

Happy Halloween!

I think we have too many, too many old ones, anyway.

Oh well.
