This is a killer video! 7 minutes of extreme motorcycle crashes. As you watch, notice how the camera person usually ends up running or involved in the crash. There is a part were a race rider comes close to being thrown, but somehow recovers, gets back on and continues. Great motorcycle video and music, Enjoy.
Well, not really the event, but the Screaming Eagle Films Sturgis video”Stories from the road” is almost like being at the South Dakota motorcycle event. Unlike most videos that strictly show the uncensored or hot party of a motorcycle event, this video is about the ride. We have not yet made the trip to the otherwise sleepy little town of Sturgis, South Dakota to document the Sturgis motorcycle rally, but plans are being made for very near future visit.
Sturgis Bike Week is held the first full week in August of every year with the upcoming date for the 67th annual Sturgis rally to be held on August 6th through the 12th of 2007. Sometimes referred to as the Black Hills Rally, Sturgis Bike Week is held in the area of the Black Hills of South Dakota and Wyoming. The Mayor’s ride is now in the 5th season and is a beautiful motorcycle ride through the Black Hills to Mount Rushmore state park.
Watching the official Sturgis Video will get you revved up and ready for the 2007 motorcycle event season, and it is not far away. I will be posting updates and motorcycle rally information throughout the upcoming year, so keep an eye on my blog.
Entertainer James Brown died early (1:45 a.m.) Christmas Day at the Emory Crawford Long Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia where he was admitted on Sunday with pneumonia. James Brown, to me, was not just a soul singer, he was an artist as a entertainer. His music is still heard today and has inspired many others to accommodate his style of stage performance that include a dance that was distinctively the one and only James Brown. A dance style that was so distinctive that many times people could recognize just by seeing his feet!
James Brown has appeared in many movies, one of my personal favorites, the Blues Brothers and has produced over 100 songs that hit the chart top. Though James Brown has left us, his music, art and dance style will live on forever.
(Orlando, Florida) December 8, 2006 US Marshals actor Wesley Snipes turns himself in to the feds.
The indictment handed down October 17, 2006 names Wesley Snipes and 2 other men for tax fraud charges. Snipes has been in Namibia shooting the movie Gallowwalker, but was arrested upon returning home to Florida today.
Wesley Trent Snipes (“Snipes”), formerly of Windermere, Florida, Eddie Ray Kahn (“Kahn”), of Sorrento, Florida, and Douglas P. Rosile (“Rosile”), of Venice, Florida, with conspiracy to defraud the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and presenting a fraudulent claim for payment to the IRS.
Snipes is also charged with six counts of failing to file income tax returns. Each of the conspiracy and false claim charges carry a maximum sentence of five years’ imprisonment. Snipes also faces up to one year imprisonment on each charge of failing to file income tax returns.
The indictment alleges that Snipes, Kahn, and Rosile attempted, through dishonest means, to make it appear as if Snipes had no liability for federal income taxes, when, in fact, Snipes had such tax liabilities. As part of the scheme, the defendants allegedly prepared and filed two amended federal income tax returns for Snipes, fraudulently claiming refunds of 1996 and 1997 income taxes previously paid, totaling almost $12 million. The indictment also alleges that Snipes did not file his 1999 through 2004 federal income tax returns, even though the law required him to do so.
Wesley Snipes appeared in front of U.S. Magistrate Judge Gary Jones and plead not guilty today and remains free on a 1 million dollar bond. Snipes has appeared in all 3 Blade Runner movies, White men can’t jump, Miami Vice and too other movies to name.
Snipes’ attorneys disputed reports that the actor was trying to elude authorities on the charges, which were handed up in October, by staying in Namibia. They said he had offered to turn himself in to authorities there if the U.S. government wanted, but that prosecutors and defense attorneys negotiated his return to Florida to appear in court today.
