Grand Prix

Hahaha! It’s a Grand Prix. Get it?

No, you shut up.

Banzai!
January 31, 2007

This is a segment from this week’s season premiere of Top Gear. It’s just Jeremy going on and on how brilliant the XKR is. But the reason I wanted to show you this clip is not the XKR. No. It’s the car they pit it against: The Aston Martin V8 Vantage.

Ogi

Ogi 2

 

Ogi‘s work explores a youthful realm of Japanese girls, playful characters, and decorative graphics. In this creative environment Ogi nods to pop culture, Japanese animation, and manga. His collision of illustration and digital elements is a distinctive expression of the world around him.” – Reciever Gallery

Can’t say that his work is entirely original, but I still do find pleasure in viewing his pieces.

More artwork after the jump.

Cornelius – Fit Song
January 29, 2007

I’m sorry to be posting yet another YouTube video, but trust me, this is really cool!

This is the PV for Cornelius’s single, Fit Song. For me, it was more the video than the song that really intrigued me, but nonetheless the song and video were well matched.

For more information on the artist, Cornelius, visit Wikipedia.

I Gotta Get Me One of These!
January 29, 2007

As I wait for the latest episode of Top Gear to finish downloading, I had to go find old clips of the show on YouTube. And I found one of the coolest automotive gadgets ever! The Carver is not quite a motorbike, not quite a car–well, watch it to understand what I mean. It might be the ugliest thing to grace tarmac, but when you’re having that much fun, you’re honestly not going to care!

I want to rent a couple of these and ride around someplace with my friends. How sweet would that be?!

They’re Back!
January 29, 2007

Jeremy, Richard, James and The Stig are back for another season of Top Gear! For those who aren’t fans yet, Top Gear is a automotive journalism show on BBC 2. The hosts are quite humorous in their approach to cars. It’s fun to watch even if you’re not a gearhead!

As to my knowledge it doesn’t air here in the States, so the only way to get it is via download. If you are already saavy in using Bit Torrent, FinalGear.com provides the weekly goods. Otherwise, try YouTube to find highlights from the show.

He sure makes it difficult to take pride in being an American. Silly Bush.

2JZ Swap

2JZ Swap

“For those of you scratching your heads, a 2JZ is the engine block found in high performance Toyotas like the Supra.”

I find the “canister of Nas” to be a nice touch.
