How'd this happen?

Boston's long dead music scene message board was filled with nothing but crappy bands telling me they were playing some shitty club I'd never go to anyhow.
The too big to be useful "Traditional" hot rod message board has 18 threads about the latest local bullshit "Rat Rod Kulture Costume Party" and I find out weeks late that The Pirates played at a local dive bar?!?!?
Are you kidding me?
If I hear this show was empty, there's no hope for this town.

Girl Cars...

Both rear-engined.
Both air cooled.
Both cool know....girly.

I thought it was funny that one still had some what of a transmission hump....

while the other totally did not.

Race car!!

No brakes.
The battery terminals arc on something every time you take a corner & it sprays anti-freeze all over the place....but man is it fun!

Before & after, of sorts....

I grabbed this picture over the weekend:

and found out via The HAMB
that it's been in the area for awhile....

Every few days or so.....

I'm going to be plugging this.
It'd be great if a bunch of people showed up.

Mel Torme!....Mel Torme?!?!?!?

I've never been much of a fan, but I'll be damned if this isn't one of the best songs ever....

Workday photos from a Wednesday

Specifically, this Wednesday.
Taken during work, with my telephone.

I do love the running light.....BONK!

It's funny, I used to ride a Vespa through here:

Today, it was this:

Just a few thoughts

I'm kind of on the go here.

If you're going to drive a race car on the streets of Newton,'s best to do it during the Boston Marathon.
You already know where the cops just go!

Sarah Palin is STILL the most annoying person on the planet.

If you happen to be an airline executive pissing and moaing about money lost during a volcanic eruption, please feel free to hop behind the wheel of a plane yourself & see if it is safe to fly through.
Let us know what happens.

Should I even bother to go on about how ridiculous it is to have a recall brought on by the failure of a car's "Stability Control System?"
What about the outright stupidity of having to rely so heavily on a "Stability Control System?"
Really, just learn how to drive.

I'm sure this all makes me sound like some grumpy old man with a keyboard but today I just don't care.
To quote Homer Simpson of, all people, "I make no apologies...I'm sorry, that's just the way I am."

Just so your day isn't a total waste, please feel free to go check out my pal Natalie's blog.
She's smart, funny, entertaining and is one of the few people who writes in such a way that I don't loose interest three words in.
Go see for yourself here.

I'm suppose to what?

My good pal Scooter has pointed out that I should add the "Follow" er....option (Is that the right word?) to all this foolishness.
If there's anyone's page you should be following, it's his.
Go take a look here.
You'll find he has excellent taste in cars, takes a great picture, is building one hell of a hot rod & is just all around cool.
Also, if it is easier for you to follow all this dribble, please find the newly added "Follow" thing a ma bob
<----- Over there somewhere.

The jury is still out

I've never been sure if this guy helped or hurt...

and yes, thank you, I do feel swindled.
