Weekend 209.1 (Tires/Tyres)

Yeah. I’ve added a category for tires/tyres because of my obsession with vulcanized rubber. Photographs of tires/tyres for me are like hi-res food shots to foodies.

I watched Tokyo Story last night and Noriko [Setsuko Hara] was employed by the Yoneyama Trading Company whose business was tires apparently (?).

Yasujiro Ozu's Tokyo Story

Speaking of pron; here is some new bike pron! The first is an illustration/drawing by Scott White from Bermuda Journey. The second is from another movie with Setsuko Hara called Late Spring.

(1) Get-Tough Policy on Chinese Tires Falls Flat (WSJ)

(1a) The reincarnation of the Playmobil Classic Car (6240) with accompanying tire pron!

This has nothing to do with tires but was part of my weekend reading:

(2) Boardroom Conquerors (WSJ)

“The good life, Mr. Kluth suggests, is not to be found by trying to imitate those we consider leaders and successes, who are rarely all they seem. It consists of doing what we must, as well as we are able, perceptions and consequences be damned.”

Weekend 208.1

Front Street, Hamilton, Bermuda(1) Ten Remarkable U.S. Bridges

(2) Bermuda Journey, Fourth Impression 1958, William Zuill

“For many years Front Street was the only business street in the town and here were situated the warehouses of the merchants, many of whom lived on the upper floors of their premises, enjoying, from pleasant verandas facing the harbor, the prevailing breeze and the bustle of the port.”

Weekend 143.2

(1) Donovan to Man City? (Baltimore Sun)

(2) Defeating a pesky DUSTFLIER (YouTube)

(3) Burgoyne and his uncle built the Tamiya Solar Car (CY601) this weekend. I like the Aerial Ropeway Passenger Cabin (#70120).

(3A) Compression: Aerial Ropeway (Limestone Archives)

(4) The Instapundit on the deliciousness of the Dark ‘n’ Stormy. The blogger with many visions™ has known about the clarity inducing wonders of the Dark ‘n’ Stormy for a very long time. Once upon a time you could get it in a can.
