Random photo of the day – April 11, 2013

Red One

It’s been a while since I posted one of these. Have been in a creative slump photography wise. Anyway, just going to post a very clean Mark IV Volkswagen Jetta GLI. I think the owner calls it ‘Red Sauce’. It indeed is saucy. I forget what he did to the car, but it is very nicely done.

Top 30 Favorite Songs of All Time: #11 “Crush” by Pendulum

I remember vividly the day The Big Cheese and I saw Linkin Park at Madison Square Garden a couple of days before my birthday two years ago, February 4, 2011. The concert was nationally televised on Fuse.

What wasn’t televised, however, were the opening bands. Does It Offend You, Yeah? and Pendulum.

People I know have heard of DIOYY, but seldom do I know of anyone that has heard Pendulum before.

The guy sitting behind The Big Cheese and I didn’t stop pestering us about Pendulum. Telling us about how his sister had introduced him to the band and about how they’d be the best part of the concert. He was wrong, but nevertheless, Pendulum did turn out to be a fantastic band. Too bad they couldn’t get a good crowd reaction, the only crowd there to enjoy it was the pit.

Here’s a song from them for you to listen to.

Oh, and Pendulum has gone on hiatus.

Wild Ophelia 44% Cacao Beef Jerky Milk Chocolate Bar – Thoughts

I was doing some valentine’s day shopping at my local Wegman’s, and while at the candy aisle to pick up some Goetz Caramel Creme candy for my love, I happen to notice this little odd treat.  Beef Jerky Milk Chocolate Bar, the title states, from Wild Ophelia, and, I just had to have it.  Now, on my way home, I was imagining chunks of beef jerky in the bar itself, and getting that nice mix of sweet and salty, but I was going to be disappointed.  It was free and clear of jerky chunks, and I barely tasted the beef jerky itself.  It only had a hint of it in there, and maybe some bit and pieces of what might have been beef jerky.  It is however a nice piece of chocolate, and it’s made here in the US, using locally sourced products, and it’s organic.

If anything it’s a nice conversation piece when you have friend’s over, and it would sure be the topic of random conversation at random times.  I still much prefer Mo’s Bacon bar, but again, it hardly had chunks of bacon in it.  I think this bar, which cost around $5.xx is worth the shot.  Head on over to your local grocery shop and give it a whirl, and tell us what you think.

Here’s a quick video of me un-boxing it.

Samurai Pizza Cats Fan Club Oath

The Pizza Cats are Samurai,
and I’d like to note:
their antics take your breath away
like furr balls in your throat
We kittens are a special breed
we never call retreat.
Whenever Big Cheese knocks us down
we land upon our feet.
So hail to thee, oh Pizza Cats.
Please ring your little bell.
Although you may be pen and ink
we know you’ll fight like…
Pizza Cats!

What is Samurai Pizza Cats you may ask, it was a 90’s cartoon from Japan that was show in the wee early hours of the AM during school days, so that no one would know it’s epic-ness.  It was very funny, and witty, and well drawn as well.  It is one of my favorite Anime’s out there, sadly it was short lived.  Read more from it’s Wikipedia page .  The oath above was recited right before the end credits.   I should hunt down a dvd set for this, if it is available. Anyhow, i’ll just have to turn to the you tubes.  Oh yeah, the end theme came up on my Zune, whilst I was doing random chores, hence why I thought i’d share this with you all.

Here’s the Intro. Listen to it carefully, the lyrics are funny.

and here’s the end theme with the oath.
