I love Halloween, always have. One of my favorite things about Halloween is carving pumpkins. I never use a template; I prefer to come up with my own crazy designs.

This year, I found a really great pumpkin at Clancy’s over in the Inner Sunset. He was a squatty little fella with a unique shape, like he already had a face before I even started taking pieces out of him. I almost wanted to leave him as-is. Almost…

Angelica and I had a small pumpkin carving party at our place last night. I went to work on Mr. Spooky Jack O’Lantern, capitalizing on his interesting natural shape. I used a narrow blade and a small scraper for removing surface material. The wire is simply paperclips I cut to length and bent to fit.

Friday morning breakfast discussion, inspired by a particularly perfect example of a Guzzi cafe racer – basically a low barred, GP-piped 1000S built from an ’02 Stone with an injected 1000 cc motor – in the October/November 2010 issue of Cafe Racer Magazine.

Surj: “We need to get a Moto Guzzi.”
Angelica: “We need to get cereal.”
Surj: “That’s not the same.”
Angelica: “Yes, but it’s something we actually need.”
