Maverick

I love this Maverick GT or Grabber or whatever the model is, from an episode of Starsky & Hutch. I used to pass one every morning in Hopkins. This might be the same one I saw in an episode of S.W.A.T., because they weren't that common. But I just noticed something weird about it. Look at how far out that front bumper is. Maybe it's a stunt car with an extra springy bumper so they can bang into shit without crumpling the body and stuff?



Here it is in S.W.A.T. with the same deep bumper.

Slidin' Around

I managed to get my car stuck between 2 immoveable objects. Yeah, that's just an orange rubber pylon thing and some tires, but they have the same mass and hardness as concrete in the Forza 3 world.



Also drove a Subaru the way they're supposed to be driven. It'd be better if the track was muddy gravel.

Midriff

Ooohhh, so that's what a midriff is. Thank you, Wikipedia, for quite possibly the best graphical representation of any word you contain. Now, where can I get one just like it?

Choices

I love movie theater ads in old newspapers. They made it so hard (that's what she said) to choose a movie to see.

Punctuation Sucks

Ignore your real children and concentrate wholly on your step children's safety. You don't want them wandering off getting pregwaut.

Nutty as a Snickers Bar

That Gary Faulkner Obama Osama–hunter guy is about as batshit crazy as they come. Uh oh, I guess I'm just talking smack. But really, compare this interview with a Charles Manson interview and you'll see striking similarities in their thought processes.

Immigration Solved

Well, it's kinda true. We'd only need to post it in Spanish, because no way in hell they're going to learn to read English before sneaking in here.

Wizard of Id

Double Pump

Suddenly I wanna go bike ridin'. Nobody told me that tiny dresses and miniskirts is what the girls on bikes wear.

And who's the kid that picked the term "double pump" for giving somebody a ride on your bike?

Light Work

The florescent light over the mirror in the master bath died a few days ago. Sure makes it hard to shave and stuff. We got a new one yesterday (oh weird - just as I typed that word, the song Yesterday started in iTunes) and started swapping them today. Whoever put up the old one is a lazy jerk–faced douche nozzle. You know how there's usually an adapter plate bolted onto the in–wall box? And then there fixture is bolted to that plate? Well, this genius slid a bolt through from the backside of the plate and fixture, threaded a nut down over it to hold everything tight, and then—because the bolt was way too long—bent the bolt down so it wouldn't intrude into the fixture guts. It snapped off when I bent it back, and of course turning the nut only turned the bolt along with it. Luckily I was able to bent the fixture back and remove the adapter plate from the box. God I hate lousy contractors.

Freaky Pumpkin

No need to cut out a face when you can mold it into a face while it grows! It's equal parts neato and creepy.

Librarians

I don't know why librarians get such a bad rap.

Beer Me or Die

It's hard to believe that this burden on society would get arrested for fighting her boyfriend because he opened the last can of Natural Light. She looks so sweet and fiscally productive.

Nice Jugs

I always thought Mort Walker drew great looking cartoon women in Beetle Bailey. It's cuz he had a dirty mind, as seen in these rare sketches that never made it into the morning paper.

It's Crap in Any Language

What's worse than lame American pop dance bullshit music? Lame Indian (dots, not feathers) pop dance bullshit music! You might wanna mute it, because the vocals will hurt your brain. But the English "translation" is at least kinda funny.

iTunes 9.2

iTunes 9.2 broke the multi–item Get Info window when you add multiple artwork items. It only adds the last image. So if yo want multiple images in multiple items (like the front and back covers from a vinyl rip), you have to first add the back cover in the multi–item Get Info window, and then add the front cover to each track one at a fucking time. This pisses me off. They say the change was intentional. Why they broke something that worked correctly is beyond me. If you have access to the Apple bug db, please report this for me so they fix this goddamn bug. You can even use the Provide iTunes Feedback menu item in the iTunes menu.

Those Chooky Christians

I know big hairdos were the thing in the '60s, but these religious singing groups seemed to take it to the extreme. The Joyful Sounds liked it piled high, while The Faith Tones (no relation to The Dial Tones) went for more of a space helmet look. These 2 chicks knew the lord didn't want them wasting so much time on their hair, so went with snazzy hats instead.

Religion also begat some unfortunate phrases. Poor little guy. Looks like Neil Peart's gonna get lucky in the life boat. Which one is coming, the guy behind the bass player?

Some albums just make you wonder why it never got to be a hit. The same goes for the great name this guy has.

And yeah, some are self explanatory.

I love that site.

Home Porn

They don't even pretend to hide the fact that this is why home video recording was invented. Slightly NSFW, although no naughty bits are showing. But man, what a tasty bod!

The Dire Police Straits?

Pretty cool how they fit together. This guy does a bunch of these.

The Imposters

I thought these were cool, although they look a bit boring to play with now. Never had one, but I love the way they look when they're in the drag form, especially the Gremlin.

Lamar

This poor dweeb never stood a chance. Those enormous lips, nerdy glasses in Erkle position, and the deer–in–headlights stare all add up to… well, I don't know what. But sometimes it really is OK to just laugh at people.

Justice

Too bad America isn't more like China in just this one way. A guy on a motorcycle snatches a woman's purse and is then tracked down and beaten by everyone in the neighborhood. It looks like there were 2 guys in on it, because as they're beating on the guy who was on the motorcycle, another guy gets on it and tries to ride off, only to be attacked and brought down by the good citizens.

Kitten Killer

Really? This guy has mental problems and should be put down?

Finish Him!

Here's a freak who played a little too much Mortal Kombat. He claims he drank some tea with 'shrooms in it and thought his martial arts training partner was possessed, so he ripped out his heart and other parts. And he was naked. You can tell from his haircut that he's a bright, upstanding member of society. And his name's Jarrod.

The Balok Puppet Head

I love the shot of this fake alien that's in the closing credits of the original Star Trek series. His wide–open eyes and droopy mouth give him a really freaky look. And here are some shots of the puppet head in its current still–fairly–good condition.
