Driving down the 101 today I saw this huge string of plastic just flying around hitting cars. I thought to myself with my luck it will for sure get stuck on my car. Sure enough it did. I had to drag this shit for a mile before I exited and pulled over. Good thing there want any damages at all. Fucking bastard got snagged on the canards. What an A-hole! This shit always happens to me. With all the rough edges and crevices in the bumper, shit always gets snagged on them. Oh the price to pay to drive this car. I call that a first world problem.
It was funny tho. I wish I was driving beside me to snap a pic of the plastic flapping around everywhere. Must have been hilarious. I myself was laughing inside the car while I noticed people looking at me wondering what was going on. Oh what a drive.
After a few weeks of waiting the right rails are finally here for the Zeta III XL. See what happened was Bride Japan did me a total fuck up when they packaged 2 different rails in one box. So the rails I got for the seats is from a STI and the other from an Evo. Homies were on crack when they were packaging them apparently.
After a few days of waiting for japan to reply Mr Shinno finally strike a thought and check out the STI rails and low and behold it was packaged incorrectly as well. In the box was the Evo rail that I needed.
After all the wait the right side came in yesterday and install the new seat. On the passenger side I will be installing a Bride XAX II but with the luck I’ve been having, the rails I had didn’t fit either. So now I’m waiting for the passenger side rails for the XAX II which will be here in the beginning of September. Yup! Fun stuff!
So for now, I’m rocking it JDM Ghetto style!
FYI, aggressive suspension setup and a bucket seat that barely has cushioning is not very comfortable especially for a daily driver. Clearly I didn’t think this through…Hmmm I wonder if I should just install the other Zeta III XL on the passenger seat. The rail is available now. Ehhh I shouldn’t. I want my passengers to be comfortable. I am considerate you know =)
By now we all know that ARC is now defunct due to bankruptcy. Such a bummer but then who the hell can afford a $2000 intercooler nowadays. Well at least this is my tribute. Wearing the rare ARC crew jersey from TAS a few years back. It was given to me by Mackin a few years ago and I’ve never really worn them since they never fit me. (I was a fat ass.. Still am actually just thinner) but now, low and behold, it’s now a bit bigger lol. Oh well.
This is for you ARC.. you will be missed. I’ll wear this even tho it’s not Christmas.
Out with the old
My old beat up pair was the Nike Free V3.0 which is basically a little more than shoe soles. Extremely lightweight and very comfortable. I’ve gone a little more than 600 miles with these pair so it just goes to show how much beating these shoes took. Yes I know I should have retired them a few months ago since there’s a whole by the pinky toe already but hey, they were still very functional. Love em that’s why I replaced them with the same shoes, albeit, different color.
I actually felt a little douchey wearing them earlier on my inaugural run since it was matching with everything I was wearing. My white and blue board shorts, blue hoodie, and low and behold, my earphones for my iPhone has blue accent too. Fuckin matching yo! Anyhoo welcome my new kicks. You’re gonna have a very fulfilling life.
Last night while hanging out at a bar here locally I decided to experiment a little. I haven’t had some good nachos lately so I decided to order some just for shits and giggles. But then regular nachos are too boring for me so I decided to have the bartender, which sadly enough has become a homie because if the frequency of my presence there, to put some calamari on them. Good idea? Great idea!! I mean it’s not the best damn nachos ever but just looking at them with the calamari just made it a lot better. To be honest I think they cheap out on the cheese but it was still a pretty dope concoction.
Last Saturday I took a long trek to Mr JDMego’s pad in murieta to celebrate his birthday. It was a long driveeeee (thank god I wasn’t driving). Good thing my homie Jaime drove which in turn was a longer drive from me since he lives another 45 mins or so north of my house. Anyhoo, it’s rare to see a ford GT on the road so it was pretty cool to see one in action. And by action I meant slowing down right before it hits the 405 traffic. Nonetheless the car looked amazing.
Testing the new wordpress updated app. So far wordpress app for the iPhone/iPad has been such a fail that I can’t update this damn website with it. Yah I’ll use that as an excuse as part of the lack of updates. But yah it sucksssss but this one seemed to be working fine. So far that is… Now to try it and see if attaching a photo works.
And there you go. I wouldn’t know really till I it publish but here goes nothing.
To all my friends and family, A very Merry Christmas!!!! I hope everyone is safe and having a great time with their loved ones.
There’s an app for the iPhone called holographium which is a 3D light painting app that creates pretty cool looking holographic-ish images. Well text at least. So last night at about 3am, I tested It out. After a few minutes I realized how dumb I probably looked but the effects are very satisfying. Check it!
It does require you to have a camera that’s capable of a shutter speed 5 seconds or longer. So my trusty sidekick 5D to the rescue.
Just like an ex-girlfriend, I’ve been over this rain a very long time ago. It’s been raining for almost about a week now but hey, it’s still here. Who am I to complain tho really, rain only comes so scarcely here in Cali. But then it’s messing up my schedule. Oh well, at least it makes some interesting effects on the streets. The traffic lights and the rain says Merry Christmas!
This whole week I vowed that I will be running and exercising like crazy to loose the thanksgiving weight I’ve gained last week. If ever I did that is. Pretty sure I gained about 10 lbs or so coz I was just eating like shit. Hey why not right? With that being said all I’ve been doing is just running like crazy on the beach. Luckily tho I’ve been blessed with low tide and amazing weather. Albeit windy, it still has been an amazing week. So far, the last 4 days, I’ve gone about 28 miles. Not bad I think. Tuesday alone I ran 10 miles which was pretty awesome. kinda happy that I can bust out a 10 mile run out of no where and when done feel as if nothing happened. Pretty cool for me at least hehe. Anyways heres some beach shots to recap the last few days.
Way pissed off earlier looking for a battery jump pack coz the Highlander hybrid that I was shooting for Toyota decided to be an asshole and die on me. Oh hybrids why do you keep pissing me off. Anyhoo.. By walking around for about 30 minutes I stubbled upon this spot where it’s uber creeptastic. Feels like this is where Toyota brings the lazy employees and whip them here. Either that or this is the “Crack” spot hehe. Felt like some one was about to deal me some heroine. Neat place actually very gloomy and messy. I should do a shoot here.
