It’s not often I get to have three things I love all collide in a mash-up. The last time I was this excited I was listening to William Shatner’s cover of Pulp’s “Common People” and for like a split second I remembered thinking – MY GOD! Bill sounds just like Joe Jackson! Oh shit!! That IS Joe Jackson!! Then I proceeded to wet myself. (Obviously it doesn’t take much to get me excited.)
So here I present my latest three-way mash-up of love: White Castle + Family Guy + Scooters. I live in Portland, Oregon so naturally I don’t get to eat very many Sliders so when I visit my hometown of Indianapolis I go a little nuts. I actually start to smell like them after a couple of days. (Ewww! Gross!) So I reached a near orgasmic state when I saw this cup.
Here’s my question – has a scooter ever been featured in Family Guy? Or is this just a cute one-off for a cup? Cause Brian would totally have a scooter. Let me know. There’s TV spots in the works too apparently. Don’t know if it will feature a scooter or not.
Vespismo is a design company in the Netherlands that makes beautiful leather helmets and mod clothing items. Yes, the Euro is kicking the Dollars butt, but . . . don’t you deserve some Italian inspired goodness?
These cute little citrus flavored mints come with a little mirror and a cute picture of an sassy and winged girl scooterist. There seems to be a small and large size of this design.
Steve Sellers has been an integral part of the Portland (OR) Scooter Community for over a decade. He has touched our hearts as much as heâ€™s touched our scooters. Recently, after what seemed to be a very bad and very endless cold, he was finally diagnosed with Congential Heart Failure and Cardiomyopathy. Since the heart was in this condition for quite a while, he has blood clots which are detaching and have caused him one major and one minor stroke. The long-term effects of all these factors are yet to be determined but we know the long-term costs will be extensive. Like a lot of people who work for small businesses, he doesn’t have health insurance.
In the next couple of months, PDX scooterists are going to be doing multiple fundraisers and raffles to help Steve cover more basic expenses like rent and kitty litter. How can you help? Glad you asked.
I’d like to ask all of the Scooterswaggers out there who’ve had their Swag posted on our site to please consider donating to this cause by sending us raffle items. It could be anything – wine, socks, etc. (E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you the raffle coordinator’s name and address.) And remember – these are tax-deductible contributions!
Or, if you’d like to help out in a more direct way, you can donate much appreciated cash. Below is a link to Steve’s page on Scooterrelief.org. You may recall me asking you to donate to Scooter-Relief on behalf of Scoot! Publisher Josh Rogers earlier this year. He has said that he greatly benefited from donations from fellow scooterists so it really is a success story:
Here’s a link to Steve’s own site where you can keep updated on fundraising and his progress:
Thanks so much!
