Evel Knievel Dies 11 30 07 Evel Knievel, the red-white-and-blue-spangled motorcycle daredevil whose jumps over crazy obstacles including Greyhound buses, live sharks and Idaho's Snake River Canyon made him an international icon in the 1970s, died today. He was 69. His death was confirmed by his granddaughter, Krysten Knievel. He had been in failing health for years, suffering from diabetes and pulmonary fibrosis, an incurable condition that scarred his lungs. In 1999 he had undergone a liver transplant after nearly dying of hepatitis C, likely contracted through a blood transfusion after one of his bone-shattering spills.

Wallace Reid Tragedy One of Hollywood's first truly tragic stories centered on the handsome and likable Wallace Ried. Reid was one of the silents screen's biggest stars from 1919 to 1922. Hailing from a showbiz family, he initially hoped to be a film director. At age 19 Reid took a script his father had written to Vitagraph Studios. The studio recognized Reid's potential as a sex symbol and cast him as an actor. The versatile Reid often worked as a director, writer, and even as a cameraman. He was featured in two of D.W. Griffith's epics: Birth of a Nation (1915) and Intolerance (1916). Reid also appeared as a dashing race car driver in several Famous Player films, becoming a major cinema heartthrob. While making The Valley of the Giants (1919), Reid was injured in a train wreck. The studio gave Reid morphine injections for the pain so he could continue working. Because Reid was so valuable, his studio kept providing him with more and more morphine so he could keep making movies. Reid quickly became deeply addicted but there was virtually no drug-addiction help in those days. By 1922, Reid's health was in tatters. He died on January 18, 1923 at age 31. His widow, Dorothy Davenport, made a film about drug addiction titled Human Wreckage and toured with it to raise national awareness of the dangers of morphine.

New York City Bike Messengers I only put this up for people that went to NYC to jar their memory.When they crossed the street, they stopped to let by, what they thought was some nut ready to hit them. 1st way to spot a tourist,and afterwards they probally saw something they thought wasn't possible on a bike!Because you threw their timing off.When in fact they have your walking pace timed for an opening between your legs if they could fit!My heroes! In my early 20's I road raced hoping for a career,found out I was average.In my late 20's I lived across the river in Bayonne took my bike over on the commuter ferry for a job interview for messenger.So before I went I fueled up (too much) to "show em' my stuff!" Never made it;Good thing because you need total focus and concentration.Besides playing & listining to music and riding like this. Nothing has given me this rush of adrenaline and dopamine.A silver medal in the olympics was won by a messenger,they mainly use track bikes with no brakes,hold on to cabs, cabbies don't mind. For that slingshot effect.And when I found out in the 80's they could make as much as $800.00 a wk. I hopped on the ferry.

Featured Member - Donmac I was born in a small town on the banks of the river Tay in Scotland, 1961. Like many others I played football in the streets, went camping and my personal favourite, long bicycle rides. Also playing a large part of my formative years were TV and cinema and being that I lived next door to our local Odeon cinema I was on first name terms with the staff so never had to pay for entry and the highlight of my week being the Saturday morning cinema kids club. Left school well educated but with no real purpose in mind so wandered from job to job which in a way helped me take part in stage, film and TV exta work, a real passion and a great hobby. I had even thought of becoming a professional actor but was told by many that it was a hard egg to crack, so my wanderings continued. My life as was, was brought to an abrupt halt in 1999 which since then has made me focus on the future and become more mature, rather than the self centred, egotistical person I used to be and now with a great partner who sees me through the the good and the bad times. I work full time for the Savation Army and have became a comitted Christian and in a small way, feel that I make a difference in the lives of others.
