I recently went 3 days without my cell phone. Being a good son can be a real bitch sometimes. Basically My mom lost hers and shes a broker so cant be without one I gave up mine. I have to say at first it was strange, kind of like leaving the house sans wallet just constantly feeling like I was missing something, then it was kind of nice. Unable to call people or be called I got to listen to my new cd in the truck (Moonlight Cruisers recommended by my barber, hasn't left my player since I slid it in go buy your self a copy now) And to be able to just think about stuff. Quiet time to reflect and deflate from the day to and from work instead of calling to resolve or hear about the next issue. Almost liberating.
Any way Its amazing to me just how reliant I have, and am sure you as well have become on this little wonder. I dont know anyones number any more. I have no other means of contacting anyone I turned off my landline years ago. And seriously when is the last time anyone even saw a payphone! Talk about something going extinct in your life time. Any way just strange and random and a round about way of letting everyone know I am mobile phone capable again. Oh Celly how I missed you!

Crack pot? Crack shot? Hot shot? Pole pot? Cracker jack? What the fuck is this guy talkin about? Surely I miss heard that, he isn't calling me a Crack pot a diss from what the Truman administration? I digress so there I am at work and this previous manager of mine walked up with a new guy in tow and says "Oh hey you should sit here with James he was on my team he is a Crack pot technician!" Now let me explain this isn't a guy thats fresh off the boat from any were. No detectable accent seems to be a run of the mill dude I stop him and say "Why Crack pot?" he says, "Dont you know what that means, it means your really great!" "No, no it doesn't, it means I am a wiley old coot. Or someone whose brains must be leaking out of their head a nut job a believer in the insane a moron." The guy argues with me on the meaning of crack pot but he is seriously arguing so obviously someone has been calling him a crack pot with a smile for a long time. Any way who even says Crack pot any more?
And what even in todays lexicon would make you think the two words together would mean something good? Crack well we all know how good crack and head go together and pot slow no job and hungry all the time put them together and crack pot means pretty much the same thing moron. I dunno I am just sayin yesterday was weird that guys a tool and dont piss on my shell tops and call it a shine. I know the difference. By the way I looked at wikipedia They dont even have a definition of Crack Pot !! How out of use is a term when wikipedias got nothin !! Ha! I am also did a search on google for images for my title image under dumb ass and shockingly G.W.Bush and asian sport bikes seem to dominate! Seriously whats that about? Why asian sport bikes? Ok i am done you can go back to your day.

I am a Huge fan of the BBCs Top gear, And I understand that there will be a top gear for America GOD DAMNIT!! At a time with the whole world in crises everything falling apart at the seems do we really need yet another reminder that America cant get shit right? Jay Leno was approached and wisely declined the host job on the show. He is quoted as saying that he was afraid an american version of top gear might not work because the reason the brits version is so good is they trash what they drive if its a shit box they say so. And American advertisers may not like that! I am paraphrasing of coarse Jay Leno would never say "shit" in public. Jays a good guy and I have mad respect for him as a car guy but he is tied to GM way to tightly to be any good to the show.
However He is right The only way Top Gear should be done in america is if we do it in the OLD version of american spirit, were we say to ourselves damn thats good....hey FUCK those guys were better than that and then and this is the important part, prove we are. Adam Corrola is rumored to be in the lead and some jack off columnist from the la times as well. I like Adam he is not a pretty man but thats ok. With a face only radio could love comes some attitude and hopefully Adam is just rich enough that he can be honest. If this endeavor is to be any good at all it has to be so good so true so unbelievably I cant believe how right they are that the BBC version will want to challenge and debate them. In short we need the respect.
Most importantly we need guys that are regular opinionated NON SPONSORED guys. Keep the goddamned sponsors away from all members of this show. This cant be like electing our president were the candidates are for sale to the highest bidder. The second any one on the show says brought to you by and names a car company the show is done its over. Top Gear is what it is, car guys stating their opinion and you cant do that if your opinion is tied to your wallet being filled by the people you are supposed to be telling the truth about. OH and our stig has to be better faster stronger if our stig goes against thiers theirs must cry! Actual tears! If they call us out we have to match em and better them in every way more honest way funnier a couple guys talkin shit and layn rubber like crazed Roth characters. And let them be real not actors these guys gotta be genuine and likable/hate-able. If its good the ad space will fill on its own when everyone watches no matter what is being said ads will follow. Come on guys lets not screw this up huh?
