Rat Rods

I have decided I want a bad ass rat rod to buzz up and down the street in. Why not...I am in the auto parts bidness, so parts is cheap. I did not see a lot of them at the show, but I am totally in to this whole rat rod culture and ideal. I think it would be a blast, although I am not very mechanically inclined. Maybe a rat rod look would be better - check out the pic of the FJ Cruiser modified to the rat rod look....i love it.
Or maybe a mustang gt, paint it matte blank....oh that would be sweet.

I am retarded

Well...I failed to hold up to my promise of posting pics from the SEMA show. I found a new application to do such from my iPhone, unfortunately I forgot how it worked and could not find the link for it anywhere. Turns out all I had to do was just email the pics to a specific address and they post. Tard.

Does anyone even read this thing anymore or is it just for my amusement?

So we had our party last weekend and it was a blast. Lot's of people, much to drink, and a general good time. All week long I have been feeling like crap however. I was initially blaming it on the Patron, however I found out yesterday that one of my guests also has the flu this week (F.U. Greg). It almost feels like I am coming down with strep or something like that...flu or what not. I am feverish, slightly delusional, and totally out of it. This really sucks for two reasons, the Van Halen concert - which there is no way I could make it through that, and I leave this weekend for the SEMA show in Las Vegas...there is probably no way I will make it through that the way I feel right now - so I must focus on getting well, really quickly. I don't want to be sick out in Vegas. I will try to get some things done at work here and head back home to sleep.

Poor me....anyway I wanted to let you know I will be posting to the blog all throughout the SEMA show with my new iPhone, you knew it would happen eventually, since apple is my dark lord. Check back often for pictures and commentary of all the wacky happenings going down at SEMA, and Vegas on Halloween.

Here's a shocker

I thought they forgot about this....thank god they didn't. This douche cock apparently could not drive for shit, unfortunately Larry and Sierra happened to be directly in front of this asshole. Glad they didn't sweep this under the rug. Now if I could work my way on to the jury for this one...

Grandview Man Charged in Wreck that Killed Two
By KEVIN HOFFMANN The Kansas City Star

Authorities today charged a Grandview man with two counts of involuntary manslaughter in connection with a wreck last month that killed a grandfather and his granddaughter.Jackson County Prosecutor Jim Kanatzar announced the charges against William K. Johnson, 49, this morning at a press conference. According to court documents filed in the case, Johnson was driving a 1985 Chevrolet pickup on Raytown Road when the truck struck the bicycles of Larry and Sierra Gaunt. Larry Gaunt, 59, was pronounced dead at the scene. Sierra, 14, was taken to a hospital where she later died. The court documents allege that Johnson was speeding before he struck the cyclists and that his truck drifted off the roadway due to inattention. Johnson overcompensated, the documents allege, and the truck skidded before impacting the bikes. "The majority of vehicular fatalities do not result in criminal charges," Kanatzar said. "There are times when a driver's actions constitute a crime and that driver needs to be held accountable." The charges are both felonies that carry maximum sentences of seven years in prison. The area where the wreck happened is near Longview Lake south of Harry S. Truman Drive. Family members have said that Larry Gaunt, and avid cyclist, and Sierra were training for the MS 150 bike ride when the wreck occurred. It would have been Sierra's first ride in the event.

Smokes & Drinks

So we were kicking it last Sunday night at Wayne and Melinda's. Mikey and Rick from the neighborhood were there and introduced us to a new beverage...Wild Turkey Honey. Now, normally the very thought of Wild Turkey would induce a serious case of faucet face, however, this would be my favorite new spirit. This stuff is good, damn good. Even better when you kick back with an Acid Blondie. How gay have we become (not that anything is wrong with that) with the flavored drinks, cigars, and beers? Well poor me another one Sally.
BTW - This will make an excellent birthday or stock the bar gift.

The New Pornographers Challengers = meh....

Well the highly anticipated New Pornographers album Challengers was released on Tuesday. It was mostly highly anticipated because I love them so. Well, I must confess, I am a little disappointed. I am a huge fan of everything they have out, but I guess I was hoping for something new, different...a little bit more. Didn't get it. But hey, I will take it anyway...still very good.
I do however recommend the new Okkervil River release - The Stage Names....fricken brilliant.

The NP's will be in Lawrence, KS on Nov.4, Liberty Hall. I would like to go - anyone else up for it? Maybe I can get Neko to look at me....oh Neko, look at me dammit.

Bobby Bare Jr.

So everyone who knows me knows how much I love music. Each week I get all caught up on a new/old artist and go nutty with it until I burn out. Here lately I have been listening to Bobby Bare, Jr. and have yet to grow tired of it. I love his new album and I have recently downloaded everything I could find of his old stuff - equally as good. Bobby also does some great Pixies covers, which is fantastic as they are my all time favorite.

Bobby will be in Lawrence 10/10.
