Life it is a Changing …

October 14th, 2014

On February 23rd 2013 I married my best friend.  It was the best day of my life.

Until September 26th 2014 when our daughter Grace was born.  I now have two best days in my life.  I two wonderful people.

Funny how life changes and evolves.  With that this will be the last post here at  With the advent of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and the other “social networks” around this blog has lost it’s usefulness.     Hopefully I’ll figure something out for this little corner of the internet, but until then, enjoy my cobwebs.

With that I bid you all good night.

Subiefest 2012

October 22nd, 2012

So, I no longer own a Honda.

I now drive a 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX STi.  I love it!  Torque for days, AWD, turbo, fun factory.  I’m not knocking Honda, they still make amazing cars but the newer ones are just BORING.  I’ll hopefully have an S2000 as a track rat at some point, but that’s all that looks enticing these days in the Honda world for me.

As such I attended my first Subiefest @ the Fairplex in Pomona.  Decent event, but I guess coming from the Honda world I expected to see more cars.

Check my photos our here:

Misc. Update …

February 2nd, 2012

2011 was a busy year!

Most the year was spent having fun with my girlfriend who I am now living in sin with.  This is important news since out dwelling, mostly the garage though, is going to start becoming the focal point of this blog.

Laura and I somewhere between LA and Big Sur January 2011.

The house we share has the one feature that is near and dear to me, a big garage!  I’ll be documenting it’s transformation along with other my usual rambling again soon.

Wow! Not a single post in 2011!

January 24th, 2012

So there was that.  I did not post a single thing in 2011.  It’s 2012 and I’ve got a few things up my sleeves and it’s time to wipe the dust off this blog here.

“I Don’t Belong”

Dexter Adam Sandler joke reference ! ! !

October 4th, 2010

He’s back!

Okay, I didn’t dig the first episode of the new season, but the second was much better.  Of course that’s not why I’m posting.  In roughly the 32nd minute of episode 2 Masuka says “Fuck me up the goat ass.”  I have been saying that (or variations of it) for years ever since I heard Adam Sandler’s – The Talking Goat.

You’re welcome.

Enid, as played by Thora Birch in Ghost World might be the hottest chick ever in any movie.  Yeah I’m weird like that.  I think Enid is way hotter than Rebecca as played by the often drooled over Scarlett Johansson.  Just Saying.

“Sometimes I try to do things but it just doesn’t work out the way I want it to, and I get real frustrated and then like I try hard to do it, and I like, take my time but it just doesn’t work out the way I want it to. It’s like, I concentrate on it real hard, but it just doesn’t work out. And everything I do and everything I try, it never turns out. It’s like, I need time to figure these things out, but there’s always someone there going “hey mike, you know we’ve been noticing you’ve been having a lot of problems lately, you know? You need to maybe get away. And like, maybe you should talk about it, you’ll feel a lot better.” And I’m all like “oh, nah, it’s ok, you know. I’ll figure it out. Just leave me alone, I’ll figure it out, you know? I’m just working on it by myself.” And they go “well, you know, if you wanna talk about it, I’ll be here, you know? And you’ll probably feel a lot better if you talk about it. So why don’t you talk about it?” I go “no, I don’t want to! I’m ok. I’ll figure it out myself!” But they just keep bugging me, they just keep bugging me, and it builds up inside.”
