Canadian journalist Nardwuar impresses not just musicians like Pharrel or Kurt Cobain but also politicians. This radio moderator, musician and label owner is so well prepared, that the interviewees might end up speechless. All his video reports are here, his homepage with radio and written interviews is here.

I started to blog about bike related topics and I can't stop. It is like a fever. Forgive me, but fashion gets boring after a while. The news is that the Cyclowns will play at Keirin today. And whoever stole their red tall bike should bring it there tonight, so that we can throw wheels at this f+#*ker.

Thank you Roxy and Trixie Chicks for organizing this great Bike Polo tournament in London yesterday. 31 teams showed up at 8:30 on a sunday morning to play. Equiped with new Brooks saddles and the best energy, they played until five thirty. Team Muenchen took the trophy home. The photo is borrowed from the London Bike Polo FlickR page. The Berlin Ladiez bike Polo team won the first game 5:1 and lost the second one 1:5, the Berlin guys Mark and John joined with Kevin from Toronto and got kicked out by Muenchen, which is nothing to be ashamed of. Muenchen played hardcore.

Researching the history of track bikes, I stumbled over this Wikipedia entry about a contemporary subculture that rides fixed gear bikes and reads magazines such as Vice and online media such as Pitchfork. Thank god I only ride single speed. hahaha

Street Clash Blogger Darryl Natale brings street fashion onto the catwalk. He shows that this contradiction can work. During Wedding Dress #3 event in Berlin he lets the mixed audience take a closer look on the outfits of pedestrians.

During New York's Critical-Mass-Ride an NYPD cop attacked a cyclist riding down 7th Avenue. After this tourist video was up on YouTube the next day, the Officer (Patrick Pogan, 22) was stripped of his batch and gun until the investigation is over. The cyclist (Christopher Long, 29) was kept in jail for 26 hours and charged with attempted assault and resisting arrest.

Es war wieder so weit. In meiner Heimatstadt Hamburg fand letztes Wochenende zum sechsten Mal "Rock and Wrestling" statt. Im Hafenklang schlugen sich die Barkeeper der Stadt bei Rockmusik auf die Nase. Der Zuender-Beitrag bringt mit O-Tönen wie "Ich hab voll das Blut abbekommen. Es hat auf meine Brille gespritzt. Das war voll geil." sehr gut die Aussage von Rock 'n' Wrestling rüber.
