It List: Tuesday

I would like to take this time to congratulate Gorilla VS Bear and Weekly Tape Deck on their new label venture, Forest Family Records. I think it's a great thing, and I could care less about whether or not they're doing it "for the community," or whether or not they're going to have local bands, or whatever altruistic and noble reasons people try to egocentrically attach to putting out records. You know, it's really hard work no matter whose record it is, or where the artist is from, so I think it's commendable, period.

The thing is, they are actually donating part of the proceeds to the Humane Society, so there's that. A start-up label donating proceeds on their very first record is actually pretty unheard of.

Something tells me that these guys are going to have an easier time than most, and that's going to make any act lucky enough to put out a record with Forest Family in very good hands indeed. Again, congrats to all involved.

Querencia Community Bike Shop Presents Goldsprint/1670 AM (Rubber Gloves):
Interesting description from the Rubber Gloves website:

A Goldsprint is a bicycle rollers racing and social event. Riders on stationary bikes compete against each other in front of a crowd of cheering friends.

While roller racing in general can use any type of bicycle and there are variations on the set-up depending on the type of rollers used and whether the front wheel is engaged or fixed, goldsprints generally use one form of setup. As with roller racing in general, the rollers are in turn attached to a device that measures distance and can display the progress of the riders. Goldsprints also feature modern 2D and 3D visualizations.
