Thank you, boys. Thank you.

Robin Williams, I will aways miss your sense of humor and honesty, when you were full-on and off. I could never change the channel when you were on the late night talk shows. You were a true artist that used all the colors in the rainbow in your acting, comedy and in life. Robin my favorite movies of yours are Dead Poets Society and you playing the open-minded and encouraging English teacher John Keating, and Good Morning, Vietnam, and who else could play Popeye and the older Peter Pan. The world seams a less happier place with you not present in it. As a cyclist enthusiast, it was cool to see the late Oscar winner was one of the world’s biggest cycling fanatics.

Robin Williams: “I’m Lucky to Have Bikes in My Life”

“They can pee while riding. I take my hat off to them – to them, but not near them.”
—Robin Williams, on pro riders’ handling skills

“The dope tests came back. They found traces of Viagra. It helps me ride long and hard, and I don’t need a kickstand.”
—Williams, at the start of the 2002 San Francisco Grand Prix bike race

“With thighs like these, you’ve got two choices- cycling, or go-go dancer.”
—Williams, describing his less-than-classic cycling physique

We laugh, so we don’t cry.

Ferrari LaFerrari spotted in The Hamptons

A red Ferrari LaFerrari was spotted in The Hamptons departing an enclosed auto transportation company’s two 18-wheelers on Long Island’s East End for display at the new stunningly large Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill, New York on a late lazy Tuesday afternoon this July 30th along with nine other rare Ferraris.

I was just taking a ride on my Ducati 1200 Multistrada S Sport out to the Hamptons just to clear my head and get some fresh sea air and seafood, and while I was there, I thought I’d check out the cool architecture of the new Parrish Art Museum, which happens to be the size of two soccer fields in length.

As my luck would have it, there just happen to be two enclosed auto transportation 18-wheeler big rigs parked in the lengthy driveway at the museum’s entrance. So I stopped in for a look, and lo and behold, I saw multiple gleaming red Ferraris stacked and ready for unloading. The guys of the Horseless Carriage Carriers, Inc. transportation company were super cool, and mentioned there was a super exclusive Ferrari event happening the next night on July 31st for an invitation-only private viewing. Well it wound up being held by Ferrari North America for the Ferrari LaFerrari American Premier and purchasers dinner for only 40 people of the new 2014 Ferrari LaFerrari hybrid supercar.

The Parrish Art Museum event manager – clearly not a car guy – was like “this is a private viewing”, and I was like ok – well I just got mine, but the event is not until tomorrow night, and there were only three people besides the guys unloading the cars, so I was like what’s the big deal, can I hang for a sec and take a look at the “new red paint,” meaning the new supercar. I was not there bothering anyone or there to take any pictures, I was out taking a ride and just happened to see something interesting out of the corner of my eye, so I stopped by. It seemed to be such a secret, like they were unloading the holy grail or something. If it wasn’t for me quickly mentioning to the transport crew to watch out, they would have ripped off the front fender lower air faring by almost hitting the side lip of the trailer ramp because no one – meaning the event managers – was not spotting them. That would have not been good if they damaged the supercar before the event. Timing is everything sometimes ;)

All I can say is that the LaFerrari is totally stunning especially in person! I was lucky enough to stand just 2′ feet away from it glistening in the late afternoon sunset, the corporate stock photos do not do this sleek design justice. The other design concepts, (F150) Manta and the Tensostrutturaare are just as sleek as the LaFerrari (F70). What a stunning designs by Flavio Manzoni Ferrari’s Design Chief and the team of other designers and engineers. My hats off to them – crazy sexy! I will take mine in black with some black rims of course.

Beastie Boys “No Sleep till Brooklyn”

One of the original B-Boys, Adam ‘MCA’ Yauch of the Beastie Boys died at the age of 47 today, May 4th, 2012. The Beastie Boys were recently inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and it’s about dam time too! But what I don’t get is why it takes so fucking long to get real musicians and pioneers of the music industry inducted into the Hall of Fame, especially while they’re still alive to see their accomplishments acknowledged and get the respect from their peers first hand. I will never understand.

Beastie Boys: An Open Letter To NYC


I have always loved and respected the Beastie Boys, especially their early stuff Licensed to Ill – what an album! “Brass Monkey”, “No Sleep till Brooklyn”, “Fight for Your Right.” I was a B-Boy back in the day when it was called RAP not Hip-Hop. Then Rock took over, but the early kick ass beats of Run-DMC and the other early RAP pioneers always got to my musical funny bone as a drummer, good times.

I got to see Adam ‘MCA’ Yauch in Bryant Park at Fashion Week back in the 90s, that was cool.

Much respect,

“My third story is about death.

When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: “If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you’ll most certainly be right.” It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?” And whenever the answer has been “No” for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.

Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.

About a year ago I was diagnosed with cancer. I had a scan at 7:30 in the morning, and it clearly showed a tumor on my pancreas. I didn’t even know what a pancreas was. The doctors told me this was almost certainly a type of cancer that is incurable, and that I should expect to live no longer than three to six months. My doctor advised me to go home and get my affairs in order, which is doctor’s code for prepare to die. It means to try to tell your kids everything you thought you’d have the next 10 years to tell them in just a few months. It means to make sure everything is buttoned up so that it will be as easy as possible for your family. It means to say your goodbyes.

I lived with that diagnosis all day. Later that evening I had a biopsy, where they stuck an endoscope down my throat, through my stomach and into my intestines, put a needle into my pancreas and got a few cells from the tumor. I was sedated, but my wife, who was there, told me that when they viewed the cells under a microscope the doctors started crying because it turned out to be a very rare form of pancreatic cancer that is curable with surgery. I had the surgery and I’m fine now.

This was the closest I’ve been to facing death, and I hope it’s the closest I get for a few more decades. Having lived through it, I can now say this to you with a bit more certainty than when death was a useful but purely intellectual concept:

No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true.

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”


Thank you Steve! Your vision will live on – stay hungry, stay foolish my friends.
