|Jun 23, 2004 - Oh yeah....and a comic|
Forgot to mention - there is also a new comic today so check it out!
|Jun 12, 2004 - I always suspected that Bryce Sasko was a fag, but who knew it was true?|
Nothing like a miserable rainy weekend to help you put off work that you really should be doing at home. I had hoped to do some yardwork with Dawn, and fix up the
hull of my boat (before the trip to Emerald lake next weekend) but this weather is really putting a damper on things. Of course, Dawn still managed to get me to do some
landscaping outside in the rain anyhow....which was alright, because cutting sod is much easier (and messier) when its wet. So much to do! I hope Blue4130
isn't drowning in the basement yet.
I've spent about 8 hours total in cleaning out the Plymouth last week (some with the help of Blue4130 who ripped out my headliner!). Next time I see
Dog Pound I'll steal his digital camera and take some pictures of the interior. We've successfully ripped out everything except for 3 of the door panels, but
that is only a matter of time. The car itself is actually starting to smell much less like a giant bowl of mouse feces, but the garbage can in the alley isn't so lucky. I've also managed to order some NOS parts
off of ebay, like new taillight lenses - and possibly new rear view mirrors...haven't decided on those yet.|
Went to two car shows last weekend - the Knights of Columbus show at Canadian Tire, and the Pike Lake show 'n Shine. The Pike Lake show was rained out pretty bad, but there were still a lot of
die-hard fans out there checking them out. Too bad Shane wasn't around, there was a lot of good mopar muscle at the Canadian Tire show.
Anyhow, the actual point of this update was to provide my dedicated readers with some actual content for one - like this highly addictive wack-a-mole game. Play it!
Also, ever wonder why girls have two hands? How about why guys have two hands?
There is a new comic today, by a new author - so check that out.
Here's your porn link of the week for all you guys (and Lesbians) out there.
I would also like to announce that the Canadian demo group The Northern Dragons (of which soul_d is a
member) - have released their invitation to the 2004 Pilgrimage party. You can download and play the demo here.|
This will mostly interest readers who were
involved with the demo scene back in the hayday (you know, pre-internet times). Good to know the 'scene' is still alive and kicking. Keep an eye out for soul_d's picture in the demo!
That's probably good for now - thanks to all of you have continue to send me update material, especially the comics....although some of them have been of questionable quality....but better than none! Looks like its stopped raining for a
bit so I'm going outside to start drilling rivets out of the side-moulding of my boat. Woohoo!
|Jun 04, 2004 - Some actual pictures of the new beast...|
Well, thanks to Dog Pound for the use of his digital camera in aquiring some photos of the new 'project'. I'm really
glad that everyone seems as excited about this as I am, even Red Bandana and Candice. Thats
awesome....but anyhow, here's some pics - you car buffs can click on them for the full list of pictures, but I'm sure you get the idea...
Anyhow, this project is going to be really fun - but just so you know, this isn't going to get in the way of my firebird project! At least, I hope it won't - I still really want a convertible and
I've been saving my pennies for almost 2 years to achieve that goal!
Dog Pound also called me today to show me the houseboat we will be cruising in later this month - it is supplied by Twin Anchor Tours - and
you can look at our boat, the CruiseCraft II, here. Check out the virtual tours - I can't believe there's a wet bar AND a hot tub on the top deck! Kick ass....
So this has been a quick update - but hopefully an enlightening one. Summer is here, lets enjoy it people!
|Jun 01, 2004 - Hantavirus car!|
Well folks, I've gone and dragged myself home a whole new project car....a 1940 Plymouth 4-door sedan. This was sort of a spur of the moment decision on my part,
as my uncle dragged this car in from the farm last weekend where it has been sitting for the past 25 years. Once I took a good look at it, I couldn't believe how great the
body was - overall this car is a great start to an interesting project. Anyhow, I don't have any pictures of my actual car, but look below for a picture of a finished version exactly
like to one I've got sitting in my garage right now.
Notice the sweet suicide doors on the back - thats a nice touch. It was also nice to see that there are plenty of parts available on eBay for this type of car - because
its not like you see these things driving around very often. All of the lenses for the signal lights, etc, are glass because plastic wasn't used this long ago.|
Right now the whole damn thing smells VERY strongly of mouse piss, and I think I've contracted the Hanta virus - but I guess thats
all in a days work dragging home a 64 year old car!
Anyhow, there were two other primary reasons for this update - the first and most urgent is that JAMES MCKAYS birthday is coming up this weekend. I'm not sure exactly which day is his actual
birthday, but the party is at Wiskey Jacks on friday. And in case you forget about this - watch this AWESOME Flash Video presentation provided by
soul_d. Boo yeah!
The second reason (well, 3rd actually) is to give overdo pr0pz to Mr. Bryce Sasko for waiting patiently for me to add him to my side bar of links which nobody looks at except for him. I'd also like to mention
that Bryce is having a beer night at Rylys next weekend on June 11th (thats a friday). $5 for a whole shwack of beer aparently.
One last thing...I've got a great new comic from an artist we haven't heard from in awhile...
And thats it! Check back soon for actual pics of the new Plymouth.
