I went to a bar/pinball place near me a couple of years ago and tried playing a few of the newer machines. I’m sure that the alcohol didn’t help things any, but the machines just had too much going on, too many lights and noises, and the action was just too fast. I’d rather play an old-school machine, thanks. My

Not only a high five, but a first bump after that! That’s what sold me.

Perhaps look at what Monoprice has available. I had a bunch of short runs to do from a switch box to various devices and bought some 1ft cables that did the trick. MP isn’t the bargain place they once were, but sometimes they have what you need at a fair price. On Amazon Basics? I’ve used a bunch of their stuff, Read more

He’s good, but he’s no Stewart Copeland. And I didn’t hear anything in French. Have some French/Haitian rap/hip hop:

It was -14 around here, which felt like -20, and it was driving me crazy. At least for a good portion of it I was in a big, comfy seat at the movie theatre, but I still had to go back home. Monday? 11. Crazy wild swings. At least we haven’t had any snow lately; I’m still recovering from an ice-related fall a month ago.

Back in my junior year of HS I ditched class a lot and forged notes to cover the absences. The next year I chose to work in the attendance office so that I could destroy those documents. I bet that I could never get away with that crap these days...

I had that problem at my old office all the time. The guy in front of me would make his wiiiide right turn and then nearly cut me off because I turned directly into the right lane. They don’t seem to understand why I honked at them as I have to swing around to the left to avoid getting the front of my car chopped off. Read more

Damn - if I wasn’t broke I’d love to make the drive out there as I’ve been meaning to get out to KC. I’ve lived in STL for 8 years now but haven’t gone out there yet. I was planning on going for a few days in 2019, but then that whole cancer thing came up and ruined all of my plans...

VW Corrado SLC. I didn’t really care for the G60 version, but loved the VR6 and after the test drive was almost ready to drop a bundle on one. We got back to the dealership and I wanted to take a look at the engine so I popped the hood as I was opening the door. This was in the days before airbags but when cars had a

I was hoping that this was a new model by Matchbox since I absolutely must have one for my collection. My grandfather had one in that same color as that model back in the mid ‘70s that I absolutely loved to cruise around in. Lots of great memories. Years ago I had a 968, and it was a very competent vehicle, but it Read more

Back in my old neck of the woods, eh? I remember when it was Vasek Polak Porsche+Audi in that area, and spent a lot of time at the BMW dealers getting parts for my fleet.

Apparently it’s a coffee chain in the UK named after a couple of coffee-loving characters in a book by Samuel Pepys. I thought it was kind of funny since Hoole is my Finnish step-dad’s last name.

About a decade ago I went to a new doctor. They provided me with a bunch of paperwork to sign (after I asked to read it first) and there were several documents that I didn’t like and refused to sign. For some reason they didn’t balk and treated me for years. Read more
