Sweet Jeebus

This makes eating candy much more complicated than it should be, but it's still pretty entertaining. Now, even though it's 1:22 in the morning, I'm off to scarf some chocolatey death harbingers, nom nom nom!

Wish LiZt

Since Santa doesn't visit me anymore, I don't make any wish lists, because all it does is just disappoint me, for I am the one who has to buy everything ('cuz Janessa's basically out of the picture now (read: white collar criminal/JAIL); not like she'd buy me this kind of stuff anyhow. I'd like to think that I wouldn't ask for much, although it may get a bit pricey. Here's what I'm looking to do next year (aside from tracking down a more stable career to help fund all of this):

Why Will, why did you give in to Scientology and Hollyweird? You used to be the man.

War Machi....Cheadle?!?

Being a comic geek, I'm ecstatic for Iron Man 2 and the War Machine suit finally coming into use. However...Don Cheadle?!? Really?!? Terrence Howard may not have been the best Jim Rhodes, but he fit the role way better than Don "Poor Man's Denzel/Delroy Lindo" Cheadle. Much like sex with an ugly girl, as long as they keep their respective helmets on, we're good.

Homer, this one's for you

Hahahaha, don't why I randomly remembered to Google this, but it's always funny, no matter how many times I see it. This movie didn't almost ruin Jim Carrey, it just made you creeped out by him rather than just entertained.

SXE JCE (car nerd terminology, sorry)



The homie Guillermo is killing it right now. Just when Milt hangs up his SC chaps, he has his padawan step it up.

Starry Starry Road

I got school out of the way this year. Come on 2010, help me get my money so that I can ressurect LäWhy? properly, as well as my Z. In the meantime, I watch other companies I've worked with rise and fall into obscurity, and my Z just sits lonely tucked away in a corner.



Soon enough.

I'd love to have the stones this guy does, sneaking into restricted areas. Mmm, LFA.



And two JP tuning firm demo cars duking it out. Looks lopsided, but don't understimate that Zetto. You know who I'm siding with.

Cars, Chicken, & Chicks

Well, my bday was last week, and we had some good stuff go down in Glendale (which I'll cover in another post). Anyhow, wasn't really trying to get anything crazy for my birthday, just wanted to get my daily beater back into tip-top shape, so I hit up the homie, Camry/Solara guru GregTRD to do the honors at his spot in Fontana.

As you can see, only Greg can take my top end and valvetrain apart in front of me without me questioning whether or not he knows what he's doing. Good shizz, son!
Greg also hooked me up with intact, rebuilt axles, as it turned out mine were more f**cked than we both anticipated. These were mine once they were pulled out. Keep in mind that good axles should have intact CV joint rubber and be in one piece. This is just the right axle, not both.Fail for both sides, this is the left
Farewell, good buddy, you're going to an awesome new owner. It was fun being a pioneer in discovering new parts for the car. Bob will put it through it's paces on his track car, where it's less likely to take the awkward speedbump/steep driveway/crappy freeway and pothole abuse it took with me.
On our lunch break from the car, we hit us up some Chick-Fil-A, mmmmm. Their nuggets, sandwiches, lemonade, sweet tea.... all bomb. We need one closer to West Valley.
She's never low, flush or fast enough to be an "Oh my Gawd!" type of car, and she rips motor mounts at the drop of a hat, but I still love her.
In the background, you'll catch a glimpse of Greg's red monster of a Camry; stroked, supercharged, and deceiving as all hell. Don't mess with him, dead serious!
After trekking back to the Valley, the homie Dex & I hit up Hooters Burbank to each put a couple dozen wings away, and in turn we ended winning at Wingo.

I know some of you are saying, "But B, you don't have any obligatory wing plate pics or any of your beautiful waitresses!!!"

I know I suck, and left the camera in the car, so sue me. Come join us next Wednesday, when we plan to utilize the prizes we won shown below

Came home to see that my cuzzo Mark dropped off some goods from his trip to JP. Thanks a load bro, I owe you when I go anywhere else with worthy merch!
You just KNOW that something bad is within the pages of this one, it's taped shut to make the casual perv buy it to see what lies beneath the covers.

I really wish there was a full-length version of this with the London Symphony Orchestra. It'd be ill.

Great Scott!!!


On this day, November 5th, 54 years ago, Dr. Emmett Lathrop Brown was standing on a toilet hanging a wall clock when he slipped and beat his head on the bathroom sink. Unconscious, Doc had a vision. And that vision was that of a flux capacitor -- the device that makes time travel possible. The rest, my friends, is history. Or should I say, future?





































































God, I still love those films.

What the Pharrell?!?

A new female member in N.E.R.D.? I don't know guys, she might be the Fergie to your Black Eyed Peas, or she might just be the Yoko to your Beatles. Check out the video and judge for yourself.


Personally, I'm still a huge fan of their In Search Of...-era work

This didn't come out to be as awesome as I'd envisioned...still interesting to watch though. Perhaps a more wily skater than Pops is necessary to pull some craze?

Saw this on JB's site, but I had to repost it here. Mos and Thought are on point as always, but Marshall's verses are just re-donk-ulous. Why can't you just flow like this more often Em, rather than all that "celebritard"-laden BS you've got on the radio nowadays?

...huh...what?!? (note:NSFW/Not Work or School Safe!)

Sorry for the lapse in content, been getting over being sick this week. However, for the dudes out there, the following video would have you distracted as well.

Hold up...Viacom/Nickelodeon to own the TMNT property....the FUCK?!?

(click picture above for link to article regarding this travesty, reported by the folks at Go Green Machine)

Nickelodeon Acquires Global Rights to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles


Nickelodeon to Develop New CG-Animated Television Series and Paramount Pictures to Develop Feature Film of Renowned Global Property

NEW YORK, Oct 21, 2009 — Furthering its mission to provide premium content to its audiences, Nickelodeon–part of MTV Networks, a division of Viacom Inc. (NYSE: VIA, VIA.B)–has acquired the global rights to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles from The Mirage Group and 4Kids Entertainment, Inc. (NYSE: KDE). The acquisition provides Nickelodeon, the world’s number-one entertainment brand for kids, global intellectual property rights to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the hit television, film and video game property that has delighted kids around the world for the last 25 years. The aggregate purchase price for the transactions is approximately $60 million.

Nickelodeon also announced plans to develop a new CG-animated television series based on the popular superhero franchise, anticipated to premiere in 2012. Additionally, in partnership with Viacom’s Paramount Pictures, a new release of a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles feature film is also planned for 2012. Nickelodeon has also acquired all merchandising rights to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and will continue to work with its original and long-standing toy partner, Playmates Toys, which has been the creative force behind the successful TMNT master toy program over the last two decades.

“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles shares a comedic sensibility with the Nickelodeon DNA, with added layers of action and fantasy that have kept this property an evergreen favorite with multiple generations of audiences,” said Cyma Zarghami, President, Nickelodeon/MTVN Kids and Family Group. “We are extremely happy to have the opportunity to be able to focus on this property and creatively re-introduce it to a new generation of kids.”

“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a property that maintains a very passionate global fan base, is rich with opportunity for a tentpole movie, and is exactly the right property for us to work together with Nickelodeon,” said Adam Goodman, President, Paramount Pictures.

“Mirage has been the proud keeper of the Turtles’ brand since 1984, and in 2009 we celebrated their 25th anniversary with our legions of fans,” said Gary Richardson, CEO, Mirage Studios. “Nickelodeon is a powerhouse global brand, and we are confident that the company will be a wonderful steward for Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo, Donatello and all the other TMNT characters and take them in all kinds of exciting and new creative directions.”

“We enjoyed our eight-year partnership with Mirage during which 4Kids and Mirage re-launched the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise for a new generation of kids around the world,” said Alfred Kahn, Chairman and CEO of 4Kids Entertainment, Inc. “We will also work with Mirage and Viacom so that our Turtles’ licensees can be assured of a seamless transition.”

Considered one of the most popular kids’ television programs of the 1980s, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a classic, global property created in 1984 by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird. It first debuted as a successful comic book series and then became a hit animated TV show, a live-action television series, and later spawned four blockbuster theatrical releases. The property also has translated into a significant consumer products business–with DVDs, video games, toys and more–that has generated billions of dollars at retail.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is based on four mutant turtles–trained in the art of Ninjitsu–who battle evil from the New York sewers. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated television series–jointly produced by 4Kids Entertainment and Mirage Studios–will continue to air on “TheCW4Kids” Saturday morning programming block on The CW network through Aug. 31, 2010.

I don't know how to feel about this. The Turtles are one of the biggest influences on me to this day, and with Nickelodeon being what it is today (and not in it's former '90s greatness), I think they're going to flush this franchise right down the crapper.
If Nickelodeon's only major achievement in recent years is the success of an ambiguously gay sponge, then what will they do to my Green Machine?

Sexus

The automotive world has been abuzz all week about Toyota/Lexus's first true supercar effort. I am equally enthused, although I also know that the reality of owning one is just as far-fetched as your regular supercars (Lambo, Ferrari, etc). Take a gander for yourself:

Chest Clutch

There are no words to describe this....


and to quote Electronista
" Microsoft has taken the unusual step of promoting Windows 7 in Japan with Burger King's launch of a Windows 7 Whopper. Fitting in with the software theme, the burger stacks seven patties in an otherwise normal Whopper and measures 5.1 inches tall. It also has an appropriate 777 yen ($8.53) price.

The stunt isn't unique for Microsoft's Windows 7 launch, which in the run-up to Thursday's introduction has repeated the "seven" theme in multiple publicity events; it launched a giveaway of the new OS for every resident of the Dutch village of Zevenhuizen ("Seven Houses") and decorated parts of the Spanish village Sietes ("Sevens") in Windows-themed colors. The campaign contrasts sharply against the more traditional ads of Vista and earlier Windows releases, highlighting Microsoft's desire to turn around its public image.

In North America, most of the developer's less conventional advertising has centered around promoting Windows 7 house parties and its first retail stores."

I LOL'd and had a lot of memories come flowing back watching these shorts. Geez, I was practically raised by video games at one point. Scary.

Hoosier State of Mind

Upon arriving back home, I discovered that my crappy phone camera (which had recently lost it's outer lens), which I had been relegated to using whilst at The Indianapolis Super Speedway, took pics very poorly. Regardless here goes:

The next day, headed here

Some classic Ford/Lotus racers. Ill.

Then, while at the Cracker Barrel (again!), spotted this. Interesting... that milk up there would go great with this, or maybe a Coke. No, wait, that'd be overkill.


Thanks for the hospitality Catherine & family. See you all again soon.
