DOTS, JDM Edition: Skyline SEDAN! DOTS, JDM Edition: Skyline SEDAN!

Homeboy gunned it through the intersection when the light turned green.  Normally, I frown on that kind of fuckery, but it made me smile this time.  Cool car. 

I’m Going To Need An Explanation I’m Going To Need An Explanation

That’s a whole lot of WTF in one picture. Take it all in, y’all. I’m sure there’s nothing nefarious happening.

Lunchtime Munchies, Texas Edition Lunchtime Munchies, Texas Edition

This license plate in my parking garage naming this Lone Star delicacy is making me hanker for some carne asada (look it up, gringo) with all the trimmings. What’s for lunch in your world today? Bonus points to both the most IMPRESSIVE and DEPRESSING dishes.

Oh Good! My Lawn Needs Some Rain. Oh Good! My Lawn Needs Some Rain.

Four inches in the past hour or so. Just a light sprinkle. Oh, and I have a meeting tomorrow in Austin (I’m in the red splotch that used to be called “Houston”, now called “Water World”). Should be a fun trek tomorrow morning. Also, car related stuff:

Anybody Have An Airboat? Anybody Have An Airboat?

All major roads in my area are impassable. I barely made it home with my 3 daughters and wife from a flooded out neighborhood (wife’s Expedition was a boss tonight). No alternative routes through town. We’ve had TEN inches of rain so far TODAY, and it’ll be raining until Saturday.

OPPO DANCE PARTY NOW IN FULL EFFECT OPPO DANCE PARTY NOW IN FULL EFFECT

Tales From The Blackbird hit ONE MILLION CLICKS. I had said in the past the this would trigger a dance party. HERE IS THE DANCE PARTY. ATTENDANCE IS MANDATORY.  

I Was Late To Work Because Of Some Bullshit I Was Late To Work Because Of Some Bullshit

True story. Talk about a turd of a day so far. This morning, traffic was crappy to the extreme. And I mean REALLY shitty. Defecately a bad situation on the roadway, but everyone minded their manures and stayed friendly. It was kind of a wasted morning because I haven’t even bedung to get to my workload.

Six Months Later: Tesla Model X Owner Hit By Plane Has Insurance Rates Go Up  Six Months Later: Tesla Model X Owner Hit By Plane Has Insurance Rates Go Up 

On September 19, 2018, a good friend/neighbor of mine was driving down a road that he, my wife, and I all traverse every day when a single engine plane owned by the Drug Enforcement Agency crash landed in front of him and hit his Model X that he and his young son were in. Cue the ensuing absurdity of the auto…

LIES LIES

Not only did this guy have the V emblem on the back of the DTS, but the son of a bitch fully committed to his lying liar ways by putting Vs on the sides AND painting the brake calipers red.

A New Friend Bought a Large Thing.  A New Friend Bought a Large Thing. 

It was purchased for a good cause (that will warrant its own write up soon), so no dick jokes. But HOLY HELL is this F-650 truck cool!

Behold, The Nicest* Yugo For Sale in America Behold, The Nicest* Yugo For Sale in America

It’s beige. It has a couple of door dings. But otherwise, it’s a MINT 3-PEDAL, 40,000 MILE PIECE OF EASTERN BLOC HISTORY! And it could be yours for the low low price of $3,250 (OBO).

I’m Kind of a Big Deal Now I’m Kind of a Big Deal Now

Ed and I should do the Cannonball together sometime. 

Remember Earlier This Year, When A Lot of Folk Were Yelling...

...about their concerns regarding Tesla’s financial health/viability as a company, and the fanbois were laughing, insisting that all was well in the Musk-iverse?

At Least He’s Both Honest and Self-Aware At Least He’s Both Honest and Self-Aware

As seen on a Camaro ZL1 this evening. I didn’t hear him blaring any Whitesnake or Def Leppard, though.

Hour Rule Hour Rule

Better than a Veyron Lambo when it comes to driving into water.

Someone Take Elon’s Phone Away From Him Someone Take Elon’s Phone Away From Him

Christ, Musk, is it really that hard to not act like a total jack ass? All you have to do is run your companies and not make waves on social media. Why is this so difficult a concept to grasp?
