Beautiful Women, Cars, and Jokes. What else is there?

I’m a huge Doors fan. I was too young to see them perform back in the late 60s and early 70s but I was lucky to catch Ray, Robbie, and Ian Astbury when they toured as The Doors of the 21st Century back in 2002. Hearing them perform LA Woman live, even without Morrison, was incredible and something I’ll never forget.


I recently came across another Doors fan who wanted to do an old-school remix of a Doors song using old computer equipment and a DECTalk speech synthesizer. Odd? Yeah, but it took a lot of work and it turned out pretty good! Check out the video featured above to hear Break on Through to The Other Side performed by the following computer peripherals:


HP ScanJet 3C – Vocals
DECTalk Express – Vocals
Yamaha CX-5M Computer – Saw Wave Bass
Yamaha CX-5M Computer – Sine Wave Organ
Drums – Slamming Hard Drive Head
Cymbal – Striking Hard Drive Platter

Pepsi is going Back to the Future! bttf-pepsiFans of the Back to the Future trilogy will no doubt remember in the second film when Marty McFly traveled into the future, specifically October 21st, 2015. He walked into a diner and ordered a Pepsi but received a futuristic Pepsi Perfect. In honor of this event, on October 21st Pepsi will release Pepsi Perfect in a limited edition. Extremely limited. Only 6,500 bottles of the stuff will be made. They’ll be sold for $20.15 a pop, literally.


Oh, and aside from being made with real sugar, it’s just regular Pepsi in a special collectible bottle.

It was a damn chilly weekend here in Illinois but considering what the east coast had to deal with, I probably shouldn’t complain. But I will. It was horrible! I was cold all weekend and couldn’t seem to shake it. My body just isn’t adjusting to the cold and it worries me because winter even here yet!


Against my better judgement I decided to watch the Bears game and record the Nascar race for later. Surprisingly, that turned out to be a good call because the Bears actually fought back against the Raiders and got their first victory of the season. It was a close game at 22-20 but it’s a victory, and that’s all that matters right now.


In Nascar it was Kevin Harvick who needed a win to advance to the next round in the race for the Chase, and that’s exactly what he got—a win at the Monster Mile! Junior also managed to make the cut while his teammate Jimmy Johnson did not. If you’re wondering if I’m smiling, I most certainly am!


The video featured today (above) is Motor Trend’s annual World’s Greatest Drag Race competition. They put 10 of the world’s best supercars and sports cars together to face-off on the quarter-mile. Who gets all the glory? Ya gotta watch!




It’s back! The World’s Greatest Drag Race returns with 10 of the world’s best supercars and sports cars facing off in an epic quarter-mile sprint for glory… and ultimate bragging rights! This year’s field includes all 10 contenders from Motor Trend’s 2015 Best Driver’s Car.


We have the Mercedes AMG GT S, Bentley Continental GT3-R, Chevrolet Corvette Z06, Cadillac ATS-V, Volkswagen Golf R, Porsche Cayman GT4, Mazda MX-5 Miata, Mercedes-AMG C63 S, Lexus RC F, Cadillac CTS-V — all gathered together on an abandoned airstrip at El Toro Marine Base to find out which car is the fastest. Obviously these 10 competitors display a wide range of power and performance, so why do we continue lining them up for one, over-the-top drag race?… Because We Can!
