No, not the one from Starsky & Hutch! This was an idea for a character I just wanted out of my system in a day or so. He'd have a catchy Syd & Marty Crofft style tune that would go something like; La la la, giant robots, monster lizards or mutant ninjas cant stop me from getting to you...La la la...whenever you need me, no matter where you are, I'll get thru...la la la!....something crappy like that! ; )
Discovering "Small Black" and their song "Despicable Dogs" was a pleasant treat to my ears. This particular song had such a haunting melody that really stuck in my mind for days.

A while back my mom sent me some old photos of me on my first bike in Argentina and some pics of me with my banana bike back in the day in good 'ol Cleveland. As a young boy in the 70s having a bicycle and not just any bike, a banana seat chopper, wheelie bike, was my elevation to independence. To ride with the summer breeze in my face anywhere and anytime without wearing out my kicks and in record time was the freedom I longed for as a boy.
