Sweet Wreck!

So, I just saw what was probably the coolest wreck of my life. I was waiting patiently at a stop sign, while the car in front of me had the itch to just floor it. Well, that did not work out to well for the 1992 Honda Accord with Rancid stickers plastered all over the bumper. I just sat there and smiled as I saw a 1/4 ton Nissan Titan getting ready to ram the Accord. I guess I felt sorry for the nice truck hitting such a piece of crap car, especially since it wasn’t even his fault.

I am just pissed at myself for not snapping a picture! People are such ding-dongs these days.

Lamborghini Reventón

There are very few words that can describe this fine vehicle. From the moment I saw it, it has struck my heart strings. If only I had $1 Million to burn on a car. Well, $1 million for anything actually! Here is a little background behind the name of the car:

The Reventón is named after a fighting bull in keeping with Lamborghini tradition. The bull, raised by the don Heriberto Rodríguez family, was best known for killing famed bullfighter Félix Guzmán in 1943. Reventón means “explosion” or “burst” in Spanish, when used as a noun. In the vernacular, it is also used to define a very large party or a night on the town. It’s commonly said “vámonos de reventón”, which means “let’s go party tonight.” In automotive terms, it means “blowout, flat tire” when used as a noun. When it was used as the name of a bull, however, it was intended to be interpreted as an adjective, a quality or property of that bull in particular. In this last sense, Reventón means “he who seems to be about to burst”.

Justin Moore Hits Number 1!

Justin Moore found another reason to love his hometown last week when his latest single, “Small Town USA,” hit No. 1 on the Billboard country chart. And the residents of Poyen, Ark. — population 272, according to the most recent U.S. Census Bureau numbers — probably love him even more for shining the national spotlight on their community in the song’s music video.

Moore’s debut single, “Back That Thing Up,” was released late last year and made it to No. 38 on the country chart, a respectable start for a brand new artist. “Small Town USA,” which Moore wrote with Dean Maher and Jeremy Stover, made a much stronger connection with country music fans.

“The struggle as a new act, I think, is to go out there and have people know who you are right off the bat, rather than just going, ‘Oh, I like that song. Who sings that?'” he tells CMT.com. “We put songs on the album that we thought would give people a good idea of who I am as artist, but it’s just as important for people to know who you are as a person.

“With ‘Back That Thing Up,’ people got a good idea that we like to have a good time and that I don’t take myself too seriously. It had a Southern rock feel, which is a big part of my record and my live shows. With ‘Small Town USA,’ I think people got a better grasp of what I’m all about as a person.”
