What’s happening at THE FIREBALL PAD this week?


Stuff be flying like a goat with a plasma booster attached to his tush. Seriously…

• First up, in our home shop, Kathie is heavy into the build of the 2014 SUPERBOWL MASCOT for Arizona. Yes, the Superbowl will be in Arizona. Plus, she’ll be starting a new secret project for THE WHITE HOUSE again. Well, it’s another Ostrich, so the bird’s outta the bag.

TOYS! Still a designing fool for the upcoming Christmas season. Expect to see some crazy new toys coming from PACIFIC STORM and yours truly. Awesome cars or light and sound. Plus, udder stuff.

SHOWS! Filming on Thursday with my special guest, RODNEY ALLEN RIPPY. You remember Rodney from the Jack In The Box Commercials of the 80’s? What’s he up to now? I’ll find out. PLUS, the insane new Chevy Malibu SS.

• SHOOTING an all new Ride of the Week today for the Malibu Surfside News. What is it? Well, you need to see next week’s issue, but this week’s is out tomorrow. I’ll be at The Pepperdine Track & Field at 2pm today  if you want a sneak preview.

• New HYPERSHORT on Thursday…

• TODAY? Off to the shop to check on Ben Affleck’s car and see what’s up. Photos tomorrow of all things cool.

And don’t forget…

If you think you are beaten, you are;
If you think you dare not, you don’t;
If you’d like to win, but think you can’t,
It’s almost a cinch you won’t.
If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost,
For out in the word we find
Success begins with a fellow’s will,
It’s all in the state of mind.

If you think you’re outcasted, you are;
You’ve got to think high to rise.
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.
Life’s battles don’t always go
To the stronger or faster man;
But soon or late the man who wins
Is the man who thinks he can.
