We have designed a shirt to let you bare your inner beast and confirm for your parents that they have indeed created a monster. Originally designed for the Critical Mass Halloween ride and later featured in Barry Jenkin’s short film Chlorophyl, the Wolfcyclist tee comes in six colors: white, charcoal, red, hot pink, pink, and grey. (Actually, the women’s hot pink has already sold out, but we may get a few more. Stay tuned.) You can get a closer look at the t-shirt by clicking on the photo below and make a purchase using the PayPay button in the sidebar. After placing an order, your shirt will ship within three days.

As if I weren’t already pumped for the Borscht Film Festival, I got a hell of a lot more so when I watched the trailer for Chlorophyl, a 25-minute film directed by Liberty City native Barry Jenkins and inspired by a song by local musician Mike Diaz aka MillionYoung.
The film is about “a young woman dealing with the emotional fallout of a failed relationship,” according to Borscht’s website — but that isn’t what got me going. Nor was it the fact that Jenkins has a really interesting backstory — as outlined in a recent New Times profile — or appears destined for a great career following the success of Medicine for Melancholy, which the New York Times ranked one of the best films of 2009.
All that’s well and good. But what really got me psyched to see Chlorophyl is a high-profile cameo at exactly 37 seconds into the trailer.

On Oct. 29, Miami Critical Massers will take their two-wheelers to the streets as they do on the last friday of every month. But this time around they’ll be dressed to kill. In the blood-curdling, zombified spirit of Halloween, riders will don costumes and bike 19 miles through Brickell, Coral Gables, Coconut Grove, Little Havana, Downtown, and Edgewater, leaving a succession of traumatized toddlers in their wake.
We at Beached Miami are so psyched for this Critical Mass, we decided to make Halloween-edition tees and hand them out for free after the ride. Robby banged out the werewolf cyclist drawing after an especially intense image repatterining session last full moon. Strapped for cash, we only made 20 shirts, so only riders in costume are eligible for the giveaway. Make sure to dress your scariest next Friday and stalk, lurch, or float our way. We’ll be the ones dressed as Romy and Michele.
