Day: September 26, 2012

Random Flickr photo of the day – September 26, 2012

One of the shots from my failed 365 set. This was close to my house, and as I driving, I happen to look that way, and saw some nice colours due to the setting sun. I stopped real quickly, and pulled out my Pentax K10D, and take a couple of frames.

Now I should’ve taken some 10 minutes and carefully shot it instead of just shooting it from inside my car. I’m overall not that pleased with the shot.

At the time thought I was still really learning more than anything else.

Volkswagen Golf GTI Mark 7

I like it, it’s not overly different from the Mark 6, which I have, but it’s different enough to make it look new and refreshed. I think it is a bit more angulared than the previous generation, more sleek looking. I’m not sure if I like the single red accent on the bottom of the grille which extends to the head lights.

I do like the fact that they colour matched the lower part of the front fascia, which they dind’t do with the Mark 6’s. Some owners colour match it, and I think looks more aesthetically pleasing. The only other thing that I’m not too crazy about is how the fins extend to the fog lights. Overall, I think the face has this mischeivous grin look to it, and it suits the personality of the car well.

I also like the new look Detroit/Huff’s. I’m not sure what city they are going to be naming these new wheels after, but they do keep that same unique and distinct look. The stock wheels by far gets the most attention. I’ve been asked a lot if they are aftermarket or custom wheels, and more often than not, it grabs the attention of on-lookers, and that usually starts off the conversation about the car itself.

With an all new platform, and some weight reduction from the use of lighter weight materials, the Mark 7 GTI will sure be a blast to drive, just as it was to drive the previous generations. I’m entering 1 year of ownership with my Mark 6, and it still gives me a smile on my face everytime I get behind the wheel.

Earworm: “Stay” by Hurts

Ah, right in the feels.

I am a Whovian. A few months ago, through the fandom, I heard this song. It’s a great song, really. I can’t say that I don’t like it.

But the pain in this song is made more obvious through the fan made music video. There’s no use in explaining it if you haven’t watched the series, and I do highly suggest you watch. It’s brilliant. Fantastic. Bring a banana, because the show is a party. Geronimo! Jump right into it, don’t hesitate. Season 7 part 1 is ending this weekend, and I do not want to miss it.

Here is the official music video:
