nike debuted their latest technology in the new nike mercurial vapor superfly II. the “nike sense” technology is an adaptive traction system that automatically adjusts the studs length in a soccer shoe according to the conditions of the field you’re playing in.
due to sold out back-to-back shows at the showbox this weekend, blue scholars have decided to do another one tonight.
ok, maybe not the best ever… but it was pretty good. we all know what the best movie ever is…
been a bit busier than usual moving out of my house.
so if you, or anyone you know, is looking to rent my 2 bedroom 1 bath with separate 2 car garage (with attic)… hit me up for details.
tonight at crocodile, Rocky Rivera will be in the building. and because of this, even my retired ass might come out for a second.
say hello to the bad guy – SLS AMG. that’s the entire name. no mercedes, no mclaren, no nada. A-M-G from head to toe. and although it instantly brings fond memories of mercedes’ original gullwing 300SL, this is not a retro car by any means. this is simply a DTM beast for the street.
it does, however, share the same gullwing-style doors as the original… but that’s where the sharing stops.
it’s a mid-engine vehicle with a transaxle. the 6.3 liter engine connects to the transmission through a carbon fiber torque tube instead of a propeller shaft. this is underneath the rear of the vehicle.
a beastly motor is nothing without a transmission that can hold its own. this cut-away of the getrag built 7-speed semi-automatic transmission shows off the dual wet-clutch set up. some car nuts might think “why doesn’t it have a manual transmission?!” because this transmission shifts at 100 miliseconds… faster than you can shift, pal… amg.
introducing the most powerful naturally aspirated v8 engine. 563 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque powers this aluminum body vehicle to an electronically limited 197mph.
there’s a ton i can write about this car, but since you can find a ton of info on the net, i’ll spare you the car-geek talk.
excuse me… i’m up late… but am i dreaming or did sony just give this dead guy $250 million for 10 albums over the next 7 years? well according to the wall street journal i’m not dreaming.
michael likes gullwings too. see you in hell, bud.
im back home in seattle after my quick trip to south california. thanks to my boy dean and his fiance lyssa for going wayyy out of their way to have dinner with me.
