Subscribing is a CINCH…


Yea, I’ve gotten a lot of input on the blog here. I want to make it as easy as possible for you guys to get the best info about cars and movies and all that. Several suggestions were to make it as easy to subscribe as possible. That’s why we installed RSS and email subscripition options here at the top. To the right. Click, and you’re pretty much in via feedburner. Hope this helps.

Episode #20 of THCS is just about ready and I’m already onto #21. Saw a good friend of mine today, Director Paul Verhoven. He directed Starship Troopers and Total Recall. Going to work in having him on the show soon.

Also got a passle of ModernMINI mags that I write for in the mail from the UK. New issue is out for those into MINIS. My article on Johnny’s Auto Clinic is in the back. Cool.

As I stood at the foot of my Police MINI being shot by UK mag MODERNMINI this past week at CinemaVehicles, I began to notice things I hadn’t noticed before. Small details on the car that bugged me. Kev, the photographer snapped away as I began to wonder… What is Perfection?

As with most things, perfection is interpretive. Each of us would describe it differently. But, I guess the important thing to realize is that nothing is ever REALLY perfect. And it’s important to be okay with that. Does perfection mean that you’ve done everything right? Balanced exactly the way you want it? It may be, but in time, things change …and so do we.

I welcome being wrong and making mistakes, even though they may be painful. And some are REALLY painful, but mistakes are how we grow. And growth is good. We learn by taking our experiences and honing them down to what is best extracted.

Don’t get me wrong. My MINI is rock solid bitchin.’ And it will make an awesome article because ModernMINI knows how to do it up right. So, the question becomes, what do I do next that’s better? Where to I go from here? Well, no one knows just yet (And if I did, I wouldn’t tell;-) but one thing’s for sure, whatever it is… it will be perfect. At least… for a little while.

Giving good info helps to CONTRIBUTE…


So, there I was. Minding my own business when I get an email from ModernMINI Magazine Editor, “UK Phil.” And he says, in his amazingly BritishWeb accent, “Hey, you wanna write for us?” And I say, in my amazingly calm and relaxed American accent, “ARE YOU KIDDING!!!!!!!!!!!”

So, beginning in July, moi will be a contributing writer for ModernMINI, the absolute best new MINI mag there is. Although it’s out of the UK, the info, photos and quality of the mag is nothing but top notch. Better than anything out there. I’ll be telling them all about how cool is is to be driving American roads in a Crumpet Rocket, how MINIS are used in movies and stories about YOU. So let me know what’s goin’ on and I’ll let them know. You never know, you know?

PR coming soon, so get in that lil’ ride of yours and make it happen…
