I got a chance to see an unbelievable documentary called “The Art of the Steal” by Don Argott. I won’t go into details of what the documentary entails… because the trailer above does a great job of that. What I will say is that I left the theatre VERY very angry. For a moment, I couldn’t even believe that something like this could happen… but then I remembered that we live in a country where the almighty dollar rules all… so to hell with things like legality, wills, or trusts. The city of Philadelphia could obviously care less about these things, as they have tourism to drum up! They want to portray themselves as one of the leading cities for art and culture, however they are showing that they are a city writhing in corruption hellbent on getting what they want… even if it means breaking the law.This film was very well produced, and I really enjoyed it immensely. If you have any attachment or relationship to art whatsoever… I would highly recommend it. And to the city of Philadelphia… you will never see a red cent of MY commerceEVER.
A couple weeks back, my buddy Clint Davis gave me a shout about a feature he wanted to do for the Longshots section of Import Tuner. This section is normally reserved for automotive photography, but Clint wanted to switch things up a bit, and feature some video content.It is VERY flattering to be featured in a tuner magazine for my endeavors behind the keyboard instead of behind the wheel. It is even more of an honor to be paired up on the same page with my ‘Keep Drifting Fun’ buddy, Will Roegge!This feature really turned out cool, and is available on newstands nationwide. Thanks Clint!!!
rnphoto c/o Sir Shawn the SmithThe private DM test-session on the road course at Atlanta Motor Speedway was SICK. Insane high-speed entries, and equally as fast course-exits. I remember looking down as I was apexing the last clip and the speedo was at 85mph. GNAR.Stay tuned for more details.
I finally got around to installing this piece. I think I ordered this in late 2004… and it has been by the wayside on my install list ever since. Truth be told, it would up in a toolbox, and I forgot about it. Matt had to drill out the existing hole and re-tap it for the VDO temp sender, because for some reason it didn’t fit right out of the box.Install was SUPER easy, and now my oil-temp gauge works!
