Twin Peaks on one screen, Carnivąle on another, City of Lost Children in a window on this screen.
Soundtrack: "Bitch" by Rory Williams, pretty fucking loud. I don't have a 1/2oz so this is the thing for the moment. Je suis comme le fumeur d'opium sur le "La Cité des enfants perdus" ; - Je distribue le poison et inspire le meurtre mais il est trŹs douloureux ainsi je dois oublier. J'irai ą toutes les longueurs pour oublier - mais rien ne fonctionnera, ainsi je beugle comme un porc poignardé et me dis que je suis un homme de grande profondeur et émotion.
Barrett Jackson is addicting on the speed channel. I've been watching it since yesterday. It's now looking like a repeat but I still cannot turn the channel.
Could these collector cars be almost a substitute for investing in the stock market?
I mean a lot of these cars that were bought were at half the build value even at 100 grand. A first year Corvette went for a cool million.
I surely won't be driving these cars if I ever had the funds. But in a few years will it be worth even more?
Even right now if you get a first production 2009 Hemi Challenger with the 200 dollar tires and 60 grand price tag if you drain the fluids and keep it in a vault on stands how much would that yield at the Barrett show in 30 years? But then again will we be using gas by then?
I guess like everything it's all a gamble. I mean an earthquake can destroy your investment.
I love it though when I see that 70 Challenger that everyone had when I was growing up going for 100 thousand for a basically stock but beautifully restored example with no real history.
They just hit the gavel at 125 thousand for a 70 Hemi Cuda. I think I'm gonna cum.
Now we got a 2010 Camaro will build to whatever specs you want so the one on display is not the car and will stamp 001 on the vin meaning first production car all the other current camaro's of this year are currently prototypes. The gavel came down at a whopping $350,000. So that car is going in storage. Maybe in 30 years it will fetch a million? Who knows.
OOH! Here comes the Eleanor car from the Cage version of "Gone in 60 seconds" One of three apparently.
It's an automatic should be a 4 speed.
The gavel comes down at $197,000
Evil Kenevil's cars not doing well at all. His motorhome sold for 60 grand. A car sold for 30 grand. That's because he was a wife beater.

Been watching some old episodes of The Office (American).
Michael occasionally says some hilarious stuff, but mostly he's just annoying (yes, I know, that's intentional, but it's also annoying, and not fun to watch). The best characters on the show are definitely Jim, Dwight, Stanley, Oscar, Angela, and Creed. I wish it wasn't so much The Steve Carrell show, the supporting cast is what makes it great. Anyway, it took me a long time to get into it (as I loathed the British one), but I finally came around about a year ago or so, and now I'm rewatching the old eps.

it kind switches over from that around Season 2 or so. Though it focuses more on Jim, Pam, and Dwight.
I'm not quite sure about this season, though. Last season's finale was probably one of the best episodes, but this season has been kind of meh. I got the impression that Holly was introduced for the sole purpose of having an excuse to make the never-to-get-off-the-ground spin-off and resulted in a bunch of whining from Michael. Pam's art school storyline didn't really go anywhere (though it seemed to hint that she'd have a fling with her friend there).
i was a little unsure at first when i'd seen the commercials for it before it aired, but was intrigued enough to give it a try... and by the end of the first episode i knew i'd want to keep watching it.
If you watch it on cable, the pundits are probably going to get a preview copy of the address about a half an hour before Obama actually speaks, and they'll start leaking bits and pieces of it to be edgy. As soon as they start doing that, I'll probably switch over to a local network.
Yep. Local network it is. I'm gonna slip a DVD+R on my player and leave it be cause I got running around to do. In 30 years even the commercials should be fun.
Tomorrow is history being made.
And that makes me hard.
" Future years will never know the seething hell and the black infernal background of countless minor scenes and interiors, (not the official surface courteousness of the Generals, not the few great battles) of the Secession war; and it is best they should notóthe real war will never get in the books." ~ Walt Whitman
