I don’t think I’ve ever posted about this (haven’t really posted about much at all), but the original Dodge Challenger has been my dream car for years and years. One of my uncles restores classic cars, and one day when I was 15 or so his family came to visit. They rolled into the driveway in a “Sublime” green Challenger and I can’t even begin to describe how impressed with it I was. It was perfectly restored, the chrome was shining, and I was in love. I’ve wanted one ever since.
I’m a huge fan of muscle cars (especially Mopar muscle). The Challenger is my favorite, though. There’s just something about it. I love the body line, and it’s stance. It looks as thought it’s about to “pounce”. Just plain badass.
You may have heard that they’re going to start making it again in 2008. I’ve been on the mailing list, and I just got an e-mail with the subject “Order Your 2008 Challenger SRT8 Now”. It’s official – they’re coming! Dealerships are now taking orders for a limited edition SRT8 that will be shipping sometime in the spring. Of course I don’t forsee being able to afford one anytime soon, and will probably sob pathetically each time I pass one on the road. But I’m still pretty darn excited! Maybe once I’ve saved up enough money, they’ll have started making it in green- that’s it, I’ll just say I’m holding out for that lol. The orange is pretty sweet too, though… And the black….. I’ll take three!!!!
I just saw that Covered In Bees’ first album, Portland Death Punk Vol. #1 is now available on iTunes. If you’re a punk, metal, alternative, etc. music fan, you should go download this NOW! You have no excuses! You don’t need to come to Maine to buy their CD at Bullmoose, it’s right there for you to download! They are a Maine band, and the singer is an old pal of mine. But my opinion is not biased at all! For real. They will kick your ass.
I just got done shoveling about a foot of snow from my driveway. I hate shoveling snow. Oddly enough, one song on the above album contains the lyrics “I don’t like to shovel snow”.
Helloooooooo! Just feeling the need to express something that’s on my mind: I was going around the ‘net today making sure my businesses were properly linked in the major search engines, etc. when I came across my web design business listing on Yahoo! local. I added that listing quite a while ago, and hadn’t been back to look at it for some time.
I saw that I had a rating of one star, and my mood plummeted dangerously low instantly as if my dog were just run over in front of my eyes. I’ve never worked with anyone that wasn’t satisfied that I know of, so I can’t imagine who would have rated me one star? Unless it was just some random bored person that decided to give me one star because they didn’t like the business name or something……….
I wish rating systems on sites like that weren’t so anonymous so that any Joe-schmoe can click away and ruin a good person’s reputation. I really can’t imagine anyone that knows me or has worked with me would have done that.
I really need to work on having more of a “thick skin”. I’ve always been over-sensitive to things like this. People say that anyone in a creative sort of industry should have a thick skin, and take criticism with a grain of salt; that’s one trait I’m lacking. I just wish I knew who did it, and why? Oh well……….moving on now……….. :)
So, how’s your day?
