Death Alley Driver


Now anyone that knows me personally knows that I am quite the driver. I've long prided myself on my driving prowess as I really don't have a lot of other tangible skills to promote. So, when I make a mistake I feel like an ass but have to laugh at myself cause hell, everyone else is.

As you can see above, I cut it just a little too close to the curb the other day at the local Kmart. Yes Kmart, people do still shop there, at least for a little while longer before they finally close. My Nephew thought it was such good fun that he had to take a picture of my new Michelin "Yellow Wall". My first thought was, "Holy shit, did they just paint that curb?" Damn that seems like a little much, I only brushed it!

I've decided to just leave it on there and let it fade away naturally. I mean we're coming out of winter anyway and perhaps it gives my vehicle a little more character or even signals to people to stay away from this one, he just doesn't care.

Happy motoring everyone, see you on the streets!

Mixed Bag

video

Just had to put this out there for all my guitar playing friends and pretty much anyone that likes a good laugh. It's only 53 seconds, trust me, it's worth it.

Looking forward to F1 at Bahrain tomorrow morning, give 'em Hell Louis! All Mercedes AMG front row, yes! IndyCar will be at Long Beach next Sunday. The White Sox have started out their season 2-3 but have been competitive in every game. If the bullpen could get it together we'd probably be 5-0. Hey, there's still 157 games to go, LOL. The Blackhawks pulled out a victory with about 3 seconds to play last night, good win. We'll be hosting the hated St. Louis Blues tomorrow. Jeez, I have a lot of sports to watch!


In music news we've moved a guitar from the "Current Guitars/Gear" category to the "Guitars Of The Past" section today as I sold my '80 Hamer Special to some guy from downstate. I put it on Craig's the other night and he was all over it, drove 2+ hours here today to get it. I have to say I never really bonded with it, I guess I'm just too much of a Strat type. It definitely went to a good home and I even made a profit on it so cheers. The Hamer was the first guitar I bought just about 4 years ago now that set off my blizzard of guitar acquisition phase that ended last August when I got the Billy Corgan Sig Strat I had been looking for. Yes, that phase is over. Over. No, really.


Finally, for those that might have missed it on Facebook, this really did make me frickin laugh today. I'll never grow up.


Have a nice weekend.

Sports Wrap Up and Shite

White Sox Opening Day!  


Yeppers, baseball returned today as the White Sox took the field against our hated rivals, the Minnesota Twins.  Chris Sale went 7+ strong innings and the bats came out to lead us to a 5-3 victory.  It's gonna be a long season, just hope we can remain competitive. 

  

The second race of what is looking to be a very exciting season of F1 took place in Malaysia early Sunday morn.  Lewis Hamilton took off and never looked back for his 1st win of the season.  Hell yeah!  Oh, I feel so bad for Sebastian Vettel making the podium in 3rd.  Fucking Not!  Next race is the Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix this Sunday. 


IndyCar began it's season Sunday also with the Grand Prix of St Petersburg in Florida.  Will Power took the win for Team Penske in an excellent race from start to finish.  There was controversy on the newly redesigned single file restart when race leader Power seemingly stepped on the brakes causing a slew of cars behind him to run into the car in front of them.  I am sure they will be looking into that, gotta be a better way to do that.  Next race up is on the Streets of Long Beach on April 13th.

It's All Or Nothing



Why do I let things like this bother me so much?  Yes, I will actually sit there and make sure every bit of that protective foil shit is off of there.  If I don't, it will drive me nuts.  OCD much?

My Mane Man


I saw this the other day as I was doing some bill paying and thought to myself, "This guy looks like a choad".  I just don't understand this style at all.  Maybe it's because I've been blessed with a full head of hair even now at 46.  It really is my only good feature so maybe I'm a little biased.  In all reality I probably have more hair above the neck than I have on the entire rest of my body.  Yeah, really.

Anyway, what is up with guys post-30 and these dumbass hairstyles?  His hair looks like a frickin' wigwam to me.  Pictured below is what a real man looks like.  And so endeth the lesson.


Wait, one last thought.  When in the hell are frosted jeans coming back?
