Used Car Review

Car guys are culturally required to hate minivans. If you love cars, you're supposed to want the BMW M5, or a Chevy Camaro, or Dodge Challenger Hellcat. Of course, the M5 costs as much as a house. The Camaro--even the $60,000 ZL1 version--has a remark...

The weirdest thing to get used to in Grav is the experience of writing in Markdown. It's this odd hybrid of modern technology and ancient word processing. But it's not weird because it's hard to get used to. It's weird because of how quickly it makes you realize that WYSIWYG editing isn't actually...

In which I talk about replacing Wordpress with Grav; discover that Google is limiting monetization on my videos for some unknown reason, and wonder if it has anything to do with my politics; look ahead to playing Wolfenstein, Assassin's Creed: Origins, CoD: WWII, and Red Dead Redemption 2;...

Keep in mind that these weren’t weird little ads in alternative newspapers....

Concept cars have been pretty boring in recent years. There are occasionally some interesting stylistic exercises, or some showcases of new technology, but for the most part, recent concept cars have been pretty dull. It wasn’t always that way, though. There was a time when concept cars were…insane....

There used to be a complete web site here. It was on Wordpress, and there was 10 years of content in it. Now, thanks to hackers it's all gone. Wordpress has turned into a security nightmare because dickless assholes with nothing better to do keep trying to constantly hack it. It pisses me the fuck o...
