This is the first new vehicle I’ve ever owned. Got it with 2/10ths of a mile on the odometer. Ladies & Gentlemen, the New Lyla:

New Lyla - Right side - 2012 Star 950 tourer

This is just about the perfect color combination IMHO.

New Lyla - Left side - 2012 Star 950 tourer

All just sittin' there sayin' "Ride me. Won't someone please just ride me?"

New Lyla - Hello there! - Star 950 tourer

Lowering the bike gave her a bit of a "Hey there sailor" vibe...

New Lyla - Fat bottomed girl - Star 950 tourer

That's kind of a nice

Just got hit by a truck 1.5 blocks from home this afternoon. Dislocated finger, loads of bruises, nothing broken no internal damage. 4 hours in the ER. Man they work FAST when you say “I just got hit by a car while riding a motorcycle and my neck hurts.”

My bike? She’s more than likely totaled. Front end is wobbling, every part is snapped or … Read more...

If I ever find out which neighbor thinks it’s totally cool to blast the club music at 6:45 AM, I will punch their stupid face. Also, if I find out who has the big dog that they put out at 7 AM every day who then proceeds to bark in a random pattern FOREVER so that I can’t get back to sleep because the random … Read more...

Cover art for The Golden Palominos Dead Inside

I recently replaced my old iPod since it would no longer hold a charge or stay on unless plugged in (and no, a new battery didn’t fix it). Got a classic and loaded damn near my entire iTunes library on it.

Nicole Blackman’s work on Dead Inside is some of the most vivid, … Read more...

Whaaaaaat in the fuck is this? When I saw this, I thought “Wow, there’s no way this is a real thing.” Then I thought “How the frig isn’t this from Japan?” You gotta watch it with the closed captioning, because the lyrics to the song? Priceless.

Wow. I don’t even know where to start. The golden god throwing pizza at Earth? Severed Penis Man? … Read more...

Galaxy Nexus battery life

By JimK | Filed in Technology

First of all, yes, I still have a blog. Shut up. This post is about the Galaxy Nexus.

I’m finally seeing some decent battery life out of the Galaxy Nexus, even with 4G on. To achieve this requires some effort though.

1. Unlock and Root, which you should do with a developer phone anyway.
2. Install a custom ROM. I’m running RootzBoat 4.03 v5Read more...
