Happy New Year to all Family, Friends, and Blog Followers!! Hope 2010 is a great one!! .Goodbye to a wonderful decade that saw loves won and lost, to siblings and other family who have past on, and to ME growing from a 22 year old boy to a 31 year old man! XOXO to all!!
The MilleMiglia was a pre/post WW2 road race from Brescia to Rome and back. Sadly stopped in 1957 due to the death of a driver, co pilot, and 13 on lookers! This was the race to be at and enter if you were a high class car owner and extremely professional driver. Most of these races were completed in less then 24 hours, which in the 20's and 30's was an amazing accomplishment. They have started the race again, but it more of a touring event now, with all the cars needing to be an original 1957 make or below to enter. Way to keep the spirit alive in Italy. And yes, the CP Company jacket is the remake of a 1920's drivers jacket!
I know I have been posting a lot about music lately, probably because of cabin fever from all the snow and crap weather we have been getting. It tends to keep you inside, sometimes that's not so bad! The band Tristeza has been around for the last 13 years or so and I have have enjoyed them for the last 10. They hail from San Diego/Tijuana and play a brilliant style of Pysch/Insta/Math Rock that I've grown to love. They just released a new record on the 14th and it did not disappoint at all. It has been a long wait since their last record in 2006, but it is well worth it! Check it out! And if you get a chance to see them live, please do so. They sound just as good if not better then their albums! Some new tracks off the new album......
Get that wallet out and get ready to pay top dollar for some of the new Skull/Fabfour web additions. I really like most pieces they have, and that said their sizes are way toooo small for my big ass! Check out what that have if you haven't before!! Made in Japan, all day!!
Trickers for Fabfour.....What??? English with the Japanese... 1992?
