This afternoon however was perfect. Bright sunny cloudless skies, a decent temperature and a fast motorcycle. Happiness takes many forms. The forecast looks like a carbon copy tomorrow, so I'm thinking that the bike is the best choice. I may vary my route though, but I haven't decided.
In movie news, a few days ago I watched a documentary on Evel Knievel, called 'Being Evel' and take it from me, the title really does work both ways.
In short, Evel Knievel was a asshole. A really nasty man who made lots of money putting his life on the line and this film documents that perfectly.
With some really compelling interview segments with friends, family and fans, there is still clearly love and admiration for the man. The film stitches footage from various sources into the narrative and fleshes out the story and is very well made and is certainly worth a watch.
Knievel was a true pioneer in entertainment, showmanship and is arguably the grandfather in extreme sports achieving some amazing things during his lifetime, which is what makes it so sad to hear the truth about the man he really was.
