I had a very cool experience recently at the Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee.                 
As a member of the media I was invited to be one of the first people of the season
to ride the JUMPSTART. It's a fully-operational, full-size Harley-Davidson motorcycle
that has its front wheel secured as the back wheel rests on a tumbler that allows the
rider (or novice rider in my case) the chance to really FEEL what it's like to ride a Harley-Davidson.
I've always heard from Harley riders that it's an experience like nothing else you've ever done. 
They were absolutely right on!
Check Out the video of my experience on the JUMPSTART



From the moment you turn the key, crack the throttle and hear that unmistakable
Harley 'potato' sound, you begin to feel different as if something has taken over,
crawled inside and rearranged your DNA. I felt more muscular, taller - more 'manly'.
I may have grown a beard while on the JUMPSTART also - not positive about that though.
A feeling of freedom took over -as if I suddenly didn't have a care in the world- raced up
my spine to my brain and out my fingers as I squeezed off another gear.
Put it this way... if the cycle suddenly jumped off its moorings and onto the highway...
I'd really have to think twice about bringing it back.
It's the coolest you can feel with no equipment required - except the ear-to-ear grin on my face.
No knowledge or previous motorcycle experience is necessary to ride the Jumpstart
and the motorcycle will not tip over. Trust me there - because I would've done it.
All you need is the desire to ride a Harley-Davidson - and, honestly, who doesn't have that.
A BIG Thank You to the Harley-Davidson Museum for a truly revolutionary experience
I'm still buzzing about.
- J.J.

Time now for this week’s lesson from Z’s School of Hard Rocks.
Today’s lesson features some little known tidbits about Pink Floyd. First, their name. Where did it come from? They were originally known as the “Tea Set”, until band member Syd Barrett came across a blues album that featured the names of two blues musicians, Pink Anderson and Floyd Council.
     Pink Floyd played their first concert in 1971. On the bill with them, Buffy Sainte Marie and The 1910 Fruit Gum Company.
     It’s estimated that one in every twelve people in the world have a copy of “Dark Side of The Moon.”
    And finally, something we’ve all wondered, what’s with the telephone operator at the end of “Young Lust?” Well, ‘The Wall’ tells the story of Pink, a rock star away from home in search of wealth and fame and who has casual sex with groupies. He places a telephone call to his wife who is at their home in England and a man answers at which point Pink realizes his wife was cheating on him. Now, the album’s co-producer James Gutherie wanted realism in that phone call, so he placed a real call from Los Angeles to his neighbor in London. The operator was real but she didn’t know she was being recorded. And truth be told, the operator heard in the recording is the second operator they tried the routine with after the first operator’s reaction was deemed unsatisfactory.
And that class, is this week’s lesson from Z’s School of Hard Rocks.

I CAUGHT 'TEEN WOLF' (1985) ON T.V. THIS WEEKEND AND COULDN'T HELP BUT THINKING ABOUT PRO BASKETBALL PLAYER JASON COLLINS' ADMISSION THAT HE WAS GAY AND HOW HIS STORY IS EERILY SIMILAR TO THE PLIGHT OF SCOTT HOWARD (A.K.A. TEEN WOLF) IN THE MOVIE.

THE MORE I DUG INTO IT, THE MORE I WAS CONVINCED THAT 'TEEN WOLF' WAS 'THE JASON COLLINS STORY' OF THE 1980'S.
NOT CONVINCED? HERE ARE THE FACTS.

BOTH ARE BASKETBALL PLAYERS OF A BARELY PASSABLE LEVEL.

THEY CAN BOTH DUNK.

AFTER COMING OUT THEY BRING A NEW SPOTLIGHT ON THE SPORT OF BASKETBALL.

JASON COLLINS PLAYED BRIEFLY FOR THE TIMBERWOLVES… TEEN WOLF IS A TIMBERWOLF.

GENETICALLY SPEAKING… TEEN WOLF AND JASON COLLINS WOULD BE DESCRIBED AS HAVING AN ‘UNIQUE PEDIGREE’.

THE ATTENTION TEEN WOLF AND JASON COLLINS GET FROM THEIR ADMISSION GARNERS THEM BOTH ADMIRATION AND DISGUST AMONGST THEIR PEERS.

TEEN WOLF’S JERSEY NUMBER IS 42…THE SAME AS BASEBALL PLAYER JACKIE ROBINSON…       WHOM JASON COLLINS HAS BEEN FAVORABLY COMPAIRED TO

THEY ARE NOW MORE RESPECTED AND ADMIRED AFTER THEY CAME OUT.

THEY BOTH HAVE AGENTS – (TEEN WOLF) STYLES / (JASON COLLINS) ARN TELLEM.

JASON COLLINS IS SAID TO HAVE ‘COME OUT OF THE CLOSET’…. THERE’S A SCENE IN THE MOVIE
WHERE TEEN WOLF COMES OUT OF A CLOSET AT A PARTY.

WEREWOLVES HISTORICALLY HAVE BEEN USED AS A PLOT DEVICE IN THE COMMENTARY ON THE ‘DUALITY OF MAN’… JASON COLLINS IS A TWIN - A LITERAL DUALITY OF MAN.

TEEN WOLF’S FATHER TELLS HIM THAT HIS CONDITION SKIPS A GENERATION … JASON COLLINS’ YOUNGER, TWIN BROTHER IS NOT GAY.

THE RECENT ‘TEEN WOLF' SERIES ON MTV WAS SAID BY SOME CRITICS TO BE A MODERN ANALOGY OF GROWING UP AS A GAY YOUTH.

BOTH TEEN WOLF AND JASON COLLINS HAVE SURFED ON TOP OF A VAN – OK I MADE THAT ONE UP.

THEY BOTH HAD HOT, BLONDE GIRLFRIENDS FOR A WHILE.  AND, IN THE SAME SENSE, TEEN WOLF AND JASON COLLINS BOTH HAD ‘BEARDS’.

AFTER ITS INITIAL RUN, THE FILM GROSSED $33,086,661 DOMESTICALLY… JASON COLLINS CAREER SALARY IS JUST OVER 32 MILLION DOLLARS.

THEY BOTH PROVE THAT BEING WHO YOU REALLY ARE INSIDE IS A GOOD THING.
