Digital Platforms Editor at NUVO. I also dabble in making noise at tigersharkmusic.com.
Couldn't disagree more, Ga Bo. It was a perfect setting for Forecastle 2012, providing lots of shade and a variety of spaces to hang out in, whether people were listening to music or trying to take a break.
My review of the event:
Bookwalter says, "When you're riding at 8 or 10 mph, you're not seeing the snake on the trail ... You're running it over."
In at least a dozen trips to Brown County State Park and Ft. Harrison trails this year, I've spotted many squirrels, chipmunks, and a raccoon on the trail - at speed - and have hit none. And I've shooed a large black snake and moved a box turtle off the trail, both spotted while cruising at a decent speed.
Most mountain bikers I've encountered control their bikes well enough to stop for such creatures - and well enough to stop for hikers, who are allowed on all the trails I've ridden in Indiana.
Good question! I've wondered the same thing, SandyR. (Though maybe we should keep our voices down - don't want to give them any ideas.) ;)
Thank you all for your comments!
@Cameron Norman, that's an admirable goal - best of luck in your career. Sound engineering is a fascinating field.
And cute cat in your profile pic. :)
@Jeff Jones, I brought up Skrillex & Deadmau5 for the reasons I mentioned (work ethic & popularity), not because they're necessarily "god-given."
And Lorin's a nice guy - I can't imagine he'd do such a thing for breakfast.
Agreed, @Bioinic Lady - the veggie burger is divine (a word I try to not use to describe anything.)
Interesting: After my review, I read the Star's David Lindquist interview with Auerbach, in which he asked if playing to 500 people is the same as 15,000. Auerbach's answer:
"For me it's all the same. It really all depends on how good the crowd is. If the crowd is into it, then the show is going to be really good. If the crowd participates, it doesn't matter if it's 150 people or 15,000. Either one can be a bummer, or be really great."
I'm riding again too! I feel like a kid again - especially since my new bike's derailleur isn't working properly, just like the days of old.
