house of small wonder

a new entry has arrived in the category of luring-me-to-drink-coffee-and-draw-in-your-friendly-confines, house of small wonder (yelp). after hanging out here on a lazy rainy day, i found myself wondering whether the greenpoint/williamsburg area needs yet another coffee shop. personally, i love’m and prefer this to the opening of yet another bar, so for me the answer is sure, why not? this little place is great, has a lovely view of the bqe and isn’t yet completely filled by the soul sucking laptop masses (i give it a week).

eben score: thumbs up!

bike brake spring

if you’ve had the pleasure of my company at any point this week, i’ve probably whined to you (sorry) about having broken the spring for the rear brake of my bike. a rare thing to break, and difficult to find a replacement. commuting by foot to the studio this week i’ve even sunk to ogling peoples’ rear brake springs. sad, i know. it’s gotten so bad that i have now drawn said single pivot brake spring.

note: if you park your bike in the williamsburg/greenpoint area and find that your rear brake is not functioning, i promise to restore all of it’s functioning pieces upon the arrival of a certain replacement part . . . and thanks for your generosity!
