The catch?

On the premiere episode of Roadkill, Hot Rod's David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan head to El Paso, TX with money and a mission - to find a car they can buy, fix up, and drive back to Los Angeles. The catch? They only have $1500 bucks to do it.

I am an admitted Star Wars geek - but wow.

Site update

I was recently going through some of my old pics when I realized that there are a bunch of shows from 2000 to 2003 that I didn't post all of the Wet T-Shirt/Bikini contests and/or assorted girls flashing.  The web host I had at that time was very strict and I didn't want to chance losing the site.  Over the next few months I will be restoring some of that "Lost Footage" to TRUCKRUN dot NET.  These pictures will be in a higher resolution from the other pics of the time and will also have the newer watermark on them.  I actually updated one of the shows from 2002 last night.

Go.

Bring The Noize

Bring the Noize was a blast!  I always enjoy making it out to this show.  I made the 5 1/2 hour drive to Glendale, checked into my room, got something to eat and then headed out to the show to take some preview pictures.  Once thos pics were done I was just getting ready to head out when the DJ says that the wet t-shirt contest is coming up at 11:00 pm.  That's just 15 minutes away.  For those of you that know me there was no option of leaving after hearing that.  I checked with the DJ and he said that there was at least one girl signed up for sure.  By 11:15 pm they finally had two girls signed up when their handlers came out and said that the only way the girls would come out is if there were no video or pictures.  Seriously?  WTF?  In all honesty I have nothing but respect for the girls who can get on stage and shake their thang for any kind of contest.  Bikini or wet t-shirt.  But seriously, no pictures or video?  Everybody agreed and then they came out in the freezing cold and did their thing.  All things considered, they did a pretty good job.  And by the way, you can view pictures here.

I went back to my room after that and uploaded the preview pics to the website and then went to sleep.  Once I woke up and got my self ready I headed out to the show.  There were plenty of quality rides out there but there looked to be about 100 vehicles less than last year which was kinda sad to see.  I would like to thank Bill Montgomery for helping me to shoot the show so that I could shoot some video as well. 

Keep an eye out in the next couple of weeks on the TRUCKRUN dot NET YouTube channel for some videos of the show.

I hung out with some old friends, made some new friends and then headed home.  Like I said, it was a blast and I look forward to next year's show.

Same sh*t, different day


"Regretfully, due to lack of sponsor interest, vendor commitment and participation in this year of a declining economy we have decided to cancel our 2012 show since we cant do it the way we want we wont do it at all. hopefully we can try again next year. thankyou for supporting us in our 2 previous years. and we will see everyone at their events.
thanks,


Chris"


The Grand National Roadster Show 2012 - Relaxed Atmosphere area video has been posted to the TRUCKRUN dot NET YouTube channel.

The sound cuts out but this is a pretty cool real car crash.

Pine trees are among the most commercially important of tree species, valued for their timber and wood pulp throughout the world. In temperate and tropical regions, they are fast-growing softwoods that will grow in relatively dense stands, their acidic decaying needles inhibiting the sprouting of competing hardwoods. Commercial pines are grown in plantations for timber that is denser, more resinous, and therefore more durable than spruce. Knotty pine wood is widely used in high-value carpentry items such as furniture, window frames, panelling, floors and roofing, and the resin of some species is an important source of turpentine.

The Compact Disc is an optical disc used to store digital data. It was originally developed to store and playback sound recordings exclusively, but later expanded to encompass storage of data (CD-ROM). Audio CDs and audio CD players have been commercially available since October 1982. From a technical standpoint, a CD is made from 1.2 millimetres (0.047 in) thick, polycarbonate plastic and weighs 15–20 grams. From the center outward, components are: the center spindle hole (15 mm), the first-transition area (clamping ring), the clamping area (stacking ring), the second-transition area (mirror band), the program (data) area, and the rim. The inner program area occupies a radius from 25 to 58 mm.

More Super Bowl stuff

Here's a cool "making of" for the VW dog commercial.



And apparently M.I.A. flipped off the camera during the half time show.  Is this really news?

Super Bowl ads

I host a Super Bowl part at my house every year and end up running around most of the day.  I usually don't get to watch much of the game and none of the ads.  I have to watch them the next day.  Here's my favorite so far.

Misc GNRS Pics.

GNRS & Etc....

 Bonus pics from the GNRS have been posted. We now have over 1100 pics from this show online!

Symmetry generally conveys two primary meanings. The first is an imprecise sense of harmonious or aesthetically pleasing proportionality and balance; such that it reflects beauty or perfection. The second meaning is a precise and well-defined concept of balance or "patterned self-similarity" that can be demonstrated or proved according to the rules of a formal system: by geometry, through physics or otherwise. Although the meanings are distinguishable in some contexts, both meanings of "symmetry" are related and discussed in parallel. The precise notions of symmetry have various measures and operational definitions. For example, symmetry may be observed: with respect to the passage of time; as a spatial relationship; through geometric transformations such as scaling, reflection, and rotation; through other kinds of functional transformations; and as an aspect of abstract objects, theoretic models, language, music and even knowledge itself.

Gotye

For whatever reason I am totally in love with the Gotye song "Somebody that I used to know".  Video here.  Awesome cover by Walk off the Earth - here.  I recorded the Jimmy Kimmel Live show just so I could see him perform that song.  Here's the point of this whole thing.  I could barely hear a word that he sang!  How hard is it to turn up the gain on his mic?  Is nobody listening in the sound booth?  I'm a computer nerd and I know to push up the slide thing on the big board that controls his mic.  How do these people keep their jobs?  I assume they are getting paid to push that little slider thing around.

That's it.  That's all I have to bitch about.  Definitely a first world problem to be sure.

Make sure and check out the TRUCKRUN dot NET YouTube channel!
