“The Motorcycle Boy’s Never Coming Back”

(Rumble Fish 1983 Still in Color)

He is merely miscast in a play. He would have made a perfect knight in a different century, or a very good pagan prince in a time of heroes. He was born in the wrong era, on the wrong side of the river, with the ability to do anything and finding nothing he wants to do.
—  S.E. Hinton, Rumble Fish

the past is a strange place

cops on bikes used to transport criminals like this

this guy worked as an alarm for waking people up

one wheel motorcycle

pin-boys who manually lined pins up

baby cage for families who wanted their kids to get enough sunlight

zoo-keeper showering a penguin


Alvvays did a Motorcycle Boy cover last night. For those that don’t know them they were a C86 style band from Edinburgh formed by Alex of The Shop Assistants and the rest from Meat Whiplash.

Guess what I’ve seen them & took pics. Here they are at The Tropic Club in Bristol 27th April 1989

so i saw this thing on tumblr the other day, and it said “true love is having a crush on him even after he got a haircut” and all i could think was PONYBOY
