An Opportunity?

As I was reading CNN today, wedged between the Britney and Clinton/Obama “news”. I came across this story. Surprisingly I was not consulted for this story, probably because no one really leaves The Big Ring. Spread the word Brothers and Sisters, The Big Ring is rolling. I am having a bit of a personal quandary […]

A Miracle?

Cipo on the podium? People still willing to hire Tyler?  Zabriskie’s mustache? Impressive yes, but the miracle is that something useful (besides Gojira) has come out of France, a self repairing rubber. The evil spectre of flats may finally be bannished to the depths of hell from which they are spawned.  (no word yet if Astana […]

Sinner Or Saint?

Ever wonder what happened to the guy who designed the logo for Poison? Seems he has found a job with Rock Racing.  This is impressive as it manages to do two things previously though impossible, make a DeRosa ugly while making ’80’s hairbands look a little less ridiculous by comparison. Somewhere Col. Kurtz is muttering: The […]
