How dreams get made...

We don't make dreams in America anymore.

We break them...

I have been to Taco Land...

Have you?


On the condition of contemporary arts culture?

Or the sophistication of the current audience?

I say both.

Taco Tuesday


Group B

Have I mentioned how much I dig the Group B era of rally racing?

Well, I do...

It is everything I love about motor sports.

Machines stretched to there absolute ugliest most contemptuous ends.
Vile, biting devices made for going stupid fast...

There is a beauty in that sort of ugliness.

There is glory in that kind of passion.

Feeling Mechanical?

Ponder on this shit for a minute...

Conjoined twins.
One with a reversed head.

How's the Weather?

Looks like Ohio really got pounded...

And stop pointing that thing in this direction, dude.
We don't want any of that...

Wall of Death Wednesday

That is a pretty sweet pic...

The Shooting

I haven't really done any writing here for a bit...
Spouting off opinions on random shit.
I have had things to do, so deal.
If you have been enjoying the lack of actual commentary here, well, it will be back to filler in just a moment.

The whole shooting deal in Arizona seems worthy of a note. Not that my insights are really any more revealing than any of the bog of blathering politicians and the media have been reduced to.

We can all agree that the crazy dude with the gun was bat shit crazy, right?

That is pretty much it.
He is a fucking loon and did bad things...

The whole deal doesn't really connect to the right or the left, when the thinking behind it is of the bonkers variety...right?

I mean sure, there is a political context to the Arizona shootings.

In that same line of thought, though, when can illustrate that much violent crime in America is political.
Politics contribute to each of our personal situations and as such are a factor in our decision making - even if we are not conscious of it in daily life.

Is the thug pulling a drive by considering how his actions might impact the political landscape?
Probably not, but you are lying to yourself if you don't recognize that politics have factored in the life situation of said thug...

I think the rush to pin a party affiliation on Loughner is plainly politicized and a continuation of the rhetoric of that medium...

The dialog has a level of "with us or against us" and has for some time.
Perhaps the tone of our current conversation has honed in on that backing thought, with/against, but it is certainly nothing new...
What about the McCarthy witch hunts? That was some rhetoric taken to the Nth degree.
Folks have been using this tactic since about the time people started grunting about how their tribe was more right than the other band of Neanderthals.

Loughner is just a whacko who read some political things, had a gun and shot a lot of innocent people.

I mean, hell, I have read books by Marx, Mein Kampf and a bunch of other political manifesto sort of shit. I am also a gun owner. If you have been reading my jibberish for any period of time, you should be well aware of my ability to put nutty things on the internet.

The crucial difference between Cue Ball and myself is that I am able to keep the screws in my dome tight enough to recognize that capping old guys, kids and congressional leaders is bad...

Loughner was deranged and did an awful thing.
Had he gone to shoot up the college he was expelled from, rather than the insanity he chose to act out, the political angle would barely be a part of the conversation.

Tacking a party or group affiliation on the dude, using this as pro-gun/anti-gun talking point, all of just flapping heads using the tragedy to further their own agendas.

A layer of sad on top of tragedy...

40 Merc Redefined

There has been a standard formula for kustom 40 Mercury's for a long time...

This car skipped most of the standard cues and has raised the bar.

I have been catching glimpses of this thing being built, for a few years now. It was destined to be a special car.
A deal changer...

You can see more of it over here.
(Follow the link, it is worth it.)

Or you can go see it debut at the GNRS...
It will be featured in about ever custom cars magazine, in some way or another, for the next bunch a months...

But today, we get a peek.

Killer car.

How To Lead

What do you prefer?

Being led with a carrot or a stick?

Or a number of highly explosive carrots, rigged to detonate at a predetermined time...

Once again, I am pretty sure I don't know how to ride I bike...

I get on it and sort of go.
I can turn and stop without falling over, usually.

It is never anything like this.

We'll go right through it.
