Jaguar XKR vs Aston Martin Vantage V8

2007 Jaguar XKR Specs:
Supercharged 4.2L V8420 hp413 lb-ft torque0-60 mph in 4.9 sec3,671 lbs2007 Aston Martin Vantage V8 Specs:4.3L V8380 hp302 lb-ft torque0-60 mph in 5.1 sec3,461 lbs For me it would have to be the Aston. Yes it has less power, less hp, and 2 less seats but it is more exclusive. It looks much better than the Jaguar and Aston even offers a race ready version, the N24


Thanks Top Gear!

Katamari Damacy vs Travelers Insurance

I only saw this commercial once and it automatically made me think of the Playstation 2 game Katamari Damacy. Check out how the Traveler's Insurance commercial and the Katamari commerical from Japan. It's a great concept. I'm glad no one was hurt during the Traveler's spot. :D

Richard Hammond Crash Video from Top Gear

Watch as the Hamster's footage where he survived a crash from a 10,000 hp rocket powered car, the "Vampire". He cracks jokes before he starts and is quite prophetic.

He completes 2 runs, one at 220 mph and 314 mph, successfully. The official British land speed record is 301 mph.

The 3rd run, where he crashes, topped out at 288 mph. You can see at the 8:15 mark that the left front tire explodes and all hell breaks loose.

As you can see that Hammond had all the safety precautions helmet, neck brace, fire suit, etc and it was performed in a controlled environment.

Welcome back Hammond!

Natas Kaupas and 20 year of Etnies Skate Shoes

This was one of my boards back in the 80's. It's a Natas Kaupas pro model. I remember seeing Natas in a Santa Cruz video ollying over a garbage can, fire hydrant, and jumping over a Porsche 914.

I'm glad to see Natas has done well for himself. I guess it's time to get another pair of Etnies.

Lotus under VW Rule - The End

Volkswagen to take stake in Malaysia Proton's manufacturing unit
KUALA LUMPUR (XFN-ASIA) - Volkswagen AG has signed an agreement to buy a substantial stake in the manufacturing arm of Malaysia's Proton Holdings Bhd, sources familiar with the deal told XFN-Asia.
An announcement is expected to be made on Feb 8, one source said.
He said the German carmaker is likely to take a 51 pct stake in Proton's manufacturing division.
from Forbes.com

Proton parent of Lotus is about to be under the rule of Volkswagen, this cannot be good. In an ideal world Lotus would have access to the power of VW and the Elise, but it is not ideal. I can see a redesign of the Elise and Exige would phase out the Toyota 1.8L engine in favor of a VW 3.2L V6. Goodbye my friend. Hopefully this will make the Proton Elise/Exige more desirable.

Rage Against the Machine Reunites!!!

Rage Against the Machine will reunite for Coachella

Rage Against the Machine, the seminal L.A. band that made heavy music into political manifesto, will reunite after a seven-year lull for one show as the headliners at the 2007 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

Sources say Rage, which played the main stage at the first Coachella in 1999, will be joined by other familiar faces for the eighth edition of the festival, which covers three days this year and begins April 27: Red Hot Chili Peppers, which headlined in 2003, are back, as is Björk, who topped the bill in 2002.

Finally! Audioslave sounds like RATM on Paxil. I hope they come to the east coast so I can see them play.

Back dimples: Olivia Munn

Olivia Munn from G4tv at the Beerfest premiere exemplifies the perfect set back dimples. She's obviously very fit and the dimples tell all. I wish I knew what jeans she's wearing. Ohh and the freckles are a plus. Go Munn go!


NBA Superstar Footwear

What to do? Hate the team but I like the shoe!

Here are 2 pairs from adidas' NBA Superstar Footwear. adidas designed 30 shoes 1 for each of the NBA teams using the classic shelltoe as the canvas. Here are the 2 best pairs since they have the snakeskin look. But I hate Philly and Golden State!!! What to do?






Of course for the team I like - they had to make an ugly, plain looking pair.



Maybe I'll rub off the 76ers logo. Help!

Gym Class Heroes = NYC Radio Hip Hop Is Dead

When I saw this on MTV I was amazed it was the first time I'm hearing about Gym Class Heroes. And then I got depressed since MTV is how I found out about the song and the group. NYC Radio will never play anything like this unless it's sold 1,000,000 copies. Progressive NYC is where mediocre radio lives. Unless you see it at Wal-mart you won't hear it from the hardcore hip-hop HOT97 or Power 105.1 - it's a disgrace. Hip hop is dead as Nas said and NYC radio stations prove it everyday. I miss the days of Stretch and Bobbito.

BMW 1 Series - 3 door Variant Introduced

The biggest news about the tiny little 1 series is that BMW debuts several new technologies with it's introduction:
Brake Energy Regeneration (iGR) - The system uses an Intelligent Alternator Control (IAC) and an Absorbent Glass Mat battery to recycle previously lost energy, in turn saving fuel. This is achieved as the IAC reduces drag on the engine by only engaging when required to charge the battery, whereas a traditional alternator is always pulling power from the engine. Additionally, the energy generated by the engine on over-run (under braking or descending a hill) was previously wasted. Now this lost energy is utilised by the IAC to charge the battery. iGR alone is responsible for a three per cent improvement in fuel economy.Automatic Start-Stop function to cut fuel consumption. Standard on all manual transmission models (except 130i), the system automatically switches the engine off when the vehicle is stationary and the driver puts the car into neutral. To restart the driv…

BMW Z9?

No one seems to be sure what this car is. The concensus from the internet is it's a Z9. And the internet is never wrong. Well there are many things wrong with this car if it is a new BMW Z9 roadster.

Cloth Convertible Top - if they want a Z9 to go up against the MB SL, it needs to have a retractable hardtop. The new 335i has one already and they would certainly not go back to cloth.Twin exhaust not quad - if it's a Z9, it must have the V10 engine from the M6 and M5. This could be easily modified though.Skinny rear tires - those tires don't look like it will be able to handle 200hp let alone the V10's 500+ hp.Most likely it's a Z2 - an entry level roadster, hopefully better looking than the atrocity that is the Z4.

Reggie Bush Takes a Hard Hit

Reggie Bush takes a hard hit early but it doesn't stop him and New Orleans Saints in beating the Philadelphia Eagles. I really thought Reggie would be to small for the NFL but he's proven me wrong especially after recovering from this monstrous hit. Good luck to the Saints!

Peugeot 908 RC Concept

This concept car from Peugeot uses a V12 diesel engine which Peugeot plans to race in the 2007 24 hours of Le Mans. If the engine wins in Le Mans, it will immediately legitimize the 908 RC concept and hopefully for Peugeot to manufacture it.
