Whoa. Tres cool.
What a treat to see someone taking a 'handicap' into another dimension.

The teeshirt with the international handicap symbol printed upside-down? Awesome.

I came here to snark that just recently I started practicing hardcore lounging, but instead I found something awesome. Thanks for posting it.

Colours in Motion is OK, but sort of faux customized for the younger mass market. Blazing flames, leper-skin, tattoos. Lasher Sport makes some very nice stuff including Magnesium(!) frames. And then there is the Trekenitic a class of its own including a built-in umbrella :)

hardcore lounging

This could be done Jackass-style. I propose we rent a u-Haul and set the inside up like a cocktail lounge, fill it with Mefites and proceed to drive around a motorcross course.

Okay, so his stunts are super impressive, but sweartogod the only thing I can think is "I wonder how the English would pronounce his name."

Funjum? Would it be "funjum"?

Well. I've always prided myself on being a hardcore sitter ever since I broke three drum stools in the course of a year. But these dudes put me to shame.

I found this while looking for a dance called The Wheelchair, which was introduced to mrdoodley by those mavens of up-to-the-minute fashion, his fifth-grade class. So, if anybody knows of a YouTube video of the Wheelchair dance (apparently you kind of shuffle-step around, while your arms, bent at the elbow and hands lightly closed, kind of jab this way and that in imitation of rolling and spinning your own wheelchair), I'd sure love to see it.

Yeah all the rage, peel on and off.

good to know. the chair they gave my mom sucked dog balls, but that was for temporary. if you're going to live in your ride, it should be a good machine that complements you, not a heavy, awkward, contrary-ass drag.
