this song is so catchy. I don’t even miss t-pain right now


Good food, good company

I don’t care if all of China disagrees with me. Hot pot is a poor man’s version of Yaohan. How could cooking your meat or vegetables in water ever be better than cooking than in salty meaty broth? It can’t. I suggest you get yourself a Cambodian benefactor whose mom is kind enough to cook for you on special occasions.

Deepest Red

November 21, 2012

My favorite 240z’s of all time are both red and have L-series engines. For those who don’t know, Sweden has fantastic car culture. Every winter they push their cars into their garages and spend months fabbing and painting new shit. Some of the most dedicated and individual builds I’ve seen have come out of Sweden. Erik Johnasson got the colors and the blacking out of the trim is just right. It’s a classic car, but it’s hard. Shatokan is alive and well.

Gingrich owns Romney

November 19, 2012

“I’m very disappointed with Governor Romney’s analysis, which I believe is insulting and profoundly wrong,” Gingrich said in an interview with KLRU-TV in Austin. “First of all, we didn’t lose Asian-Americans because they got any gifts. He did worse with Asian-Americans than he did with Latinos. This is the hardest-working and most successful ethnic group in America–they ain’t into gifts.
“Second, it’s an insult to all Americans,” he continued. “It reduces us to economic entities. You have no passion, no idealism, no dreams, no philosophy. If it had been that simple, my question would be, ‘Why didn’t you outbid him?’ He had enough billionaire supporters, if buying the electorate was the key, he could have got all his super PAC friends together and said, don’t buy ads, give gifts. Be like the northwest Indians who have gift-giving ceremonies. We could have gone town-by-town and said, ‘Come here, let me give you gifts. Here are Republican gifts.’ An elephant coming in with gifts on it.”

*Disclaimer: I don’t like Gingrich, I think what he did to his 1st 2 wives(count em) was foul, but at least he’s willing to have an honest discourse with the American people.

Birthday Song

November 19, 2012

It’s a strange thing birthdays as an adult. Everybody else still has work and grown-up responsibilities, but I’m off this year and it’s satisfying to not do anything other then what I want to do on my birthday. It’s been a good year.

I’m pretty sure I can do the 2 chainz dance

We have the rations to go anywhere…

I’ve got so many SW points and all I want to do is go home and eat empanadas.

Lasagna and Alemania

November 16, 2012

I’m starting to get to the point where I kind of have an idea how a date is supposed to go, but I still have moments where I’m surprised by my lack of foresight.

Also i’m not in Germany. We have a couple of pumps in the Rhine Valley and the oldest one seems to be taking a dump. So instead of going to a ribbon cutting ceremony and then skipping down cobble stone streets for a few days i’ll be spending a couple of weeks pulling and installing an old pump. Glass half full says this is an opportunity to build a relationship with a new client, but part of me is not excited about spending two weeks in the freezing cold when I could be working on my tan at home. C’est la vie.

Tuskegee and the way that they murdered the pantheres…

It looks like i’ll be in Germany next weekend representing our humble company at a ribbon cutting ceremony. All I want is strudel and to visit the Porsche Museum. What kind of snobs build a car museum and then advertise the gastronomy? these guys…

Not just a car museum

80 cars to rule them all

Medium bucks
