Dozen Even Matter

Y2K was 12 years ago, wasn't that supposed to be the end of the world? Pffft. I'd like some people to disappear, then maybe I'd be able to get a better job and bring some life back to this brand and blog. Now, onto recent randomness

Manly Umami

It felt cool

Ironic, and entertaining. Thanks Gap!

She so S-M-R-T, enrolling at SMC

She hates me right now, and I kind of dislike her at the moment for treating me like a child when I treat her like a queen. C'est la vie.

This is Jeri. I've known her since we were singing munchkins, now we're drinking adults

The only difference is, I can hold my liquor way better, due to the fact that I'm way bigger. You're still a boss, J!

Yes, that's an actual pig's nose. Yes, My cousin Raynard is demented.

So is Keino, but he fancy though.

Every night we shufflin'

Shuffleboarding, that is.

That ain't no butter knife, that's a butter SWORD

Homes grinning about the girl's posterior moments before her mom rained on our parade

Inside my local mall (Westfield Topanga). Rub it in my face that I'm broke, why don'tcha

Little cuzzos had a mini version of this game from childhood. Crocodile Dentist was the shit!


Stay, Abby, stay

Attractive Explosive

I'm not the biggest Wale fan, but I totally respect his hustle and his come up from relative obscurity in DC/VA to signing with Rick Ross's Maybach Music Group. Also, I dig Miguel's contribution to this particular song. Lastly, I like that Wale chose to pay tribute to a great scene from the movie "Poetic Justice". Check both the music video and the corresponding scene from the film:

I know you're reading this, so know that I miss you, my Lotus Flower Bomb.

Future Replacement (for the) Solara

My Solara is hating me right now, since the transmission decided just the other day to show it's age by slipping worse than a Lucite-heeled hooker stepping on a banana peel. (Terrible, I know. So sue me!)

I'm pretty sure she knows her time with me is now endangered, mainly because the gag order from TMS USA corporate (aka my day job) has been lifted, regarding the highly-anticipated public unveiling of the Toyota/Subaru/Yamaha halo project to be known here Stateside as the Scion FR-S. Mike Chung and my favorite Japanese tuning firm TRUST/GReddy had first dibs on having an advanced production model to prototype some parts for and display at the official release event here in Hollywood a few days ago (photo credit goes to GReddy's Official Blog)
 Needless to say, I was impressed. I've always been a fan of the FT-86 concept, and now that the car is a reality, and my faithful land barge is now coming up on 11-years-old, well........only time and fortune will tell.

 Here's a cool vid with the car at full throttle, albeit with some unnecessary music kind of drowning it out (Way to go, half-assed marketing attempt! And yet, yours truly is still a freelancer, sigh).
