The idea behind the story is, sharing with your friends enriches you both. "Hybrid vigor" was the phrase that kept running through our heads. Also, "The whole is greater than the sum of its parts." Which, if you've ever listened to a bangin' setlist, you know is true.

busted


I bit it last night on the way home from a bar, and then again this morning on the way to work. Nothing bad at all -- three scrapes that I can count, and a bruise or nine. But Louise tells me I say "OW" every time I move . Or emote -- smiling hurts, as one of the scrapes is on my chin. "Ha ha ha ha ha OW."

The best part: It's picture day at work.

In a freaky coincidence, the idea for the gang (I call it a gang; we're the friendliest, most-inclusive, least-threatening gang ever) started with two graphic designers in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, in 2004. I was living (and designing) in Sihanoukville, Cambodia, in 2004. If I hadn't been borrowing my sister's motorbike all the time, I might have been on a bike and seen them on the road. Life is strange.

Love,
Katie
