Hi, I’m Manu, a biking web developer. I’ve been writing on here since June 2002 about a bunch of different topics. My favorite posts are tagged with ✪.

Why “plothole.net”? As defined on wikipedia,

a plot hole, plothole or plot error is a gap or inconsistency in a storyline that goes against the flow of logic established by the story’s plot. Such inconsistencies include such things as illogical or impossible events, and statements or events that contradict earlier events in the storyline.

This definition suits my life pretty well.

Thanks for reading!

props #50

i got my copy of props #50 this morning, and besides the dope ass riding and the neat bonus disc, there is a ugp ad i really enjoy. it features joe rich sitting on a toilet and thinking :

sometimes i just sit and think about life. who am i? why am i? what am i doing with my life? everything seems so pointless: i fix my bike, but it always breaks down; i put gas in my car, but it’s always empty again; i fight my way through traffic, but i’m never really getting anywhere; and at the end of everyday, i go to sleep, but i’m always tired again. maybe life isn’t about all those things, maybe life is all about having fun. i don’t know. as much as i like having fun, i still feel a little empty inside. there must be more. maybe it’s about being with my friends, or with a girlfriend? or maybe, life’s all about ridin my bike. i just don’t know. maybe life’s a combination of all those things, and maybe the best thing to do is find those things i love and do the best i can with them, maybe it’s about using this life to the fullest, making good things happen. maybe it’s time for me to stop sitting around, get off there and do something.

i’m not sure wether joe wrote this, or not (and it doesn’t really matter), but these thoughts fit sooo well in my life right now!!
