Merckx Monday: Pamela Anderson

PamelaMerck

The other day my buddy Mike from COSIGH asked if I had ever seen any photos from the shoot David LaChappelle did with Pamela Anderson for Playboy. The answer was no, so Mike said he’d send it over. He also told me that the envelope which he was sending the magazine in would be better than the actual magazine, and of course I didn’t believe him. I was wrong!

Who is that shredding the guitar?

Can anyone tell me who…

this extremely fixie famous person is?

One hint…the best style, on and off the bike.

You remember the book Lost Cyclist?

In the summer of 1890, two young Americans William Sachtleben and Thomas Allen Jr. set off to circle the globe on new-fangled “safety” bicycles, prototypes of the modern bike. Over the next three years, they pedaled 18,000 miles across three continents and helped spark the great bicycle boom that transformed cycling into the wildly popular form of recreation and means of transportation we know today.

Using a new, compact Kodak camera, the young men captured 1,200 spontaneous snapshots on cellulose nitrate-based film negatives while crossing Europe and Asia. A third of these images survived and are held by UCLA Library Special Collections.

Maybe you don’t, but no matter if you’ve read the book or not, this would be a show not to miss! The UCLA Fowler museum wants to show forty-three circular black-and-white photographs taken by the two cycle-tourist in 1891, but they need our help funding it. I know…I know…it’s not some new light, cycling jeans, or something else that you don’t need. It’s art, it’s history, it’s the only way to see these freakin’ photographs.

If you’re interested at all, I’d suggest clicking…HERE!

Hey Justin!

P.S. Make sure and read the book before the show!
