Son of Tuesday Party Tune

How about a little Motörhead?  I had to debate whether or not this is appropriately Halloweeny, and came to the conclusion that riding a motorcycle* up out of a grave definitely fits the bill.

Obnoxious Advertising

Just a quick blog-maintenance update. I'm sorry if you've been bumping into pop-ups on my blog. I've been using Sitemeter for blog stats for years, and apparently at some point they've turned to the dark side and started randomly forcing interstitial ads into the sites using them.

I'd thought I had malware on my PC, but a little research showed me I'm not the only person who has encountered this problem.

I've removed the Sitemeter code from the blog, so the problem should go away.

2014 Ural MIR Unveiled!

Get a load of this sweet bike.
Photo swiped from the Ural website.
Ural has whipped up a pretty sweet special edition this year. They've named it MIR. It comes with a glittery paint job, solar panel (for tending the battery and powering aux. stuff), auxiliary lighting, windscreens for rider and monkey, and a huge wrench.

Honestly, I'm pretty tickled with this new special edition. Maybe it's because it's space-themed, or maybe just because it comes with a huge wrench strapped to the sidecar.

Which is even better than a Pendleton blanket.

Nicely done, Ural!
