2011 BL Mazda 3

Wow, I have been gone from this blog for so long! Hopefully I don’t give anyone a heart attack from this BRAND SPANKING NEW post, no seriously, please don’t have a heart attack, that would make me very sad. So anywho, I just finished clay baring and polishing roughly 75% of my car today, thought I’d take some pics before it gets water spots and dusty again.

I was lucky enough to discover the vignetting filter in my mom’s Samsung ST600, otherwise, I wouldn’t be getting pictures like these. Pictures were left untouched except for clone stamping the tripod out of one of the pictures, changing of the licence plate number (lmao), and water-marking.

Royksopp – Only This Moment

This was the very first song I heard by Royksopp and it got me hooked to this amazing band. Just wanted to post this because I wanted to share the amazing lyrics that is poetically played in this melancholic song.

[OK]

Only this (moment)
Holds us to(gether)
Close to per(fection)
Nothing is (out there)
No one to (guide us)
Lost in the (senses)
Deep down inside I know our love will die
[OK]

Only this (moment)
Holds us to(gether)
Lost in con(fusion)
Feelings are (out there)
Scared of the (ocean)
Doubting in(tentions)
Deep down inside I know our love will die
[OK]

Stay or forever go
Play or you’ll never know
We haven’t decided
You can’t deny it’s all you’ve been waiting for
[OK]

Stay or forever go
Play or you’ll never know
Your spirit’s divided
You will decide if I’m all you’ve been waiting for

Clouds in my head
Have been parted with grace
By the voice of an angel
Revealing her face
And her words they make sense and I do understand
Falling in love isn’t part of a plan
Forces within me, mix reason with lust
But I try to accept it and not make it worse
Because I know I might lose you by taking the chance
But love without pain isn’t really romance
[OK]

Only this (moment)
Holds us to(gether)
Close to per(fection)
Nothing is (out there)
Always be(side her)
Trusting my (senses)
Deep down inside I know love will survive

Only this (moment)
Holds us to(gether)
Close to per(fection)
Nothing is (out there)
Always be(side her)
Tusting my (senses)
Deep down inside I know love will survive
[OK]

Remix Artist Collective (RAC)

I found their remixes while searching for some music by an artist named ‘A-bee’. As I was scrolling through his blog to see what other musical treasures he hand posted, I came upon an album titled, ‘Stereogum presents RAC vol. 1.’ The author of the blog seemed to like their songs so I decided to download it to check it out. At first, it really didn’t hit me as interesting or grabbed my attention in any demanding way and so I left it by the wayside. However, today, I accidentally rediscovered the albums full potential by putting my iTunes to shuffle and cranking up the volume. When one of the songs on the album came up, it caught me by surprise because I couldn’t believe how spunky it sounded and the added beats really made you want to get up and dance! The bass was much more pronounced now with the increased volume and boy was it a helluva a beat. I did some more research and discovered that it was founded by a Portuguese remixer named Andre Anjos. He then recruited two more remix artists: Andrew Maury and Crookram. However, most of the songs released are remixes done by Andre Anjos. The RAC’s style of remixing is a detachment of the mainstream of popular techno/electro/trance remixes of rock/indie/alt songs. Instead of almost completely restructuring the original song and splicing bits and pieces of the original song into that remix, RAC contends to build from the original song, and enhancing it through simple loops that complement rather than recreate the original song. So, without further ado, an example of RAC’s remixed songs. Download site

American Le Mans Series

newaudiI watched the American Le Mans Series at Sebring on the Speed channel today and once again, Audi has triumphed the competition with their new prototype and on top of that, the car wasn’t tuned to it’s full potential due to bad testing weather in Europe! Nothing short of amazing. There was a lot of focus on the P1 class as it contained the marvelous competition between Audi, Peugot, and the debut of the P1 Acura prototype. Unfortunately though, the two P1 Acuras suffered multiple mechanical issues during the race and could not contribute to the fierce competition in the P1 class. However, it’s only the beginning of the Le Mans season and so hopefully we’ll see a strong comeback. Yet again, I cannot get enough of the Audi Teams. Their pit strategy, precision, efficiency, and focus are revered in the racing industry. It’s not only the drivers that win the race but the synergy of the team managers and engineers/mechanics that creates a winning team. And Team Audi’s you can be sure is top notch. Since I didn’t watch the race until it was nearly over, I missed the new GT2 BMW M3 entrant. Apparently, it only did 27 laps. Eek! According to PitNotes, the car seemed to have suffered some kind of oil leak that couldn’t be fixed.

underground hip-hop

Man, is this Music March Madness or what?! That was a lot of m’s. Anyways, here’s another musical feature. Introducing Strange Fruit Project and The Procussions feat. SFP. To me, this is the only type of hip-hop I can relate to because I’m not filthy rich who can afford a mansion, Bentleys, gold teeth caps, nor do I have the need to bang as many girls as possible to show the other guy how pimp I am because, truthfully, I can’t really get any, and lastly, I’ve never been shot or involved gang related violence. So yeah, basically, this music applies to the regular people who just want to listen to some good ol’ music with substance. Excuse me for my unusual ramblings, my posts usually do not contain any character so I decided to spice this one up. Enjoy!

Just for laughs:
