this dude is funny as hell. really takes advantage of the “American” audience. It is cool to see him getting his shine in the comedy world.

Yet another Cali fun time I am missing this year. The Grand National Roadster Show is a mind blower every year and I eagerly await the photos to see what’s what.

This is an amazing roadster from The Lifters Car Club out of San Diego. Photo by lens and pen king Coop. Here is a link to the rest of the pics Coop posted. This is not the type of car the roadster show is known for, but this is the type of car I would trip out on when walking around the show.

Not much on the net about this Lifters club, but why should there be when they deal in 50+ year old cars. Here is one article that is interesting and has some photos to check out.

After looking at a bunch of blogs photos, there are two motorcyles that I am tripping out on.

Slow Poke

The Slow Poke by Nostalgia on Wheels is an amazing build featuring all the right tricks and attention to detail. I like the fun attitude of the bike and feel like the colors and the snail character adds a lot to the design. I check out this dude’s blog every day and I am impress to see all his influences come out in one machine.

and The Fairy Duster by Foundry Moto. This is pure beauty, the colors, the chrome, the bars, the fender, the seat and even the display are perfect! This is the type of bike I would trade all my possessions for.

Big Stack of Papers in Small Package

Another big blog topic for the day, but I am trying to stay on top of this blogging thing and there is not a lot going on today in my world. We got a flat tire on our car, but what is exciting and blogable about that.

apple ipad

I was following that apple/steve action on Engadget, getting up to the minute reports and pictures. I was amazed that these updates were happening so quick. Did the reporter even have time to enjoy the presentation? Will they re-live the experience tonight when they check their rss feed? Engadget also quickly released this hands on report of this new hardware.

My first reaction to this thing is pretty cool, but fairly narrow category of uses. It looks like it would be fun for after work couch surfing or travel and that is about it. The price lends it self to people with disposable income that want a new toy, but I don’t think it is the solution to reading books for the rest of man kind. I like a stack of books and magazine around the house. Gives my space in infinity a comfortable feel. I get happy when I see a stack of things I read and enjoyed, or excited to read that stack of new books I have yet to read. I don’t get that feeling from my desktop, laptop or iphone when I see them, I just see work I have not completed!

This is just a half ass product review since I have not actually seen the thing, so I will call this a review of the release and commentary on the marketing roll out. Bottom line, pretty successful at catching my attention for a few hours.
