The more things change...

Yes, I'm back. The photo above was taken in one of the many department stores in Ginza. One of my favorite pics, I mean, I know it's no "Caution Tripping" sticker...but I do try to continue to improve this blog. Change is constantly happening, and for the most part, it's for the better.

I'm pretty happy with the change. I mean, the reason I bought the shoes in the first place was for the color of the laces, but the brown brings some interesting flavor to the mix. Thanks to my ex-coworker for the laces. And the shoe lace changes don't stop there.

This change was clearly for the better. I have been waiting to break out the sky blue laces for these kicks for a while. It was worth the wait. The blue really punches off that purple. I likey! OK, that is all for now, I will take a break from the shoes for a minute.

I think I have featured Porsche's on the thing more than any other car. I'm not sure why, I mean I like them as much as the next (car) guy, but I don't consider them to be heads and shoulders above everybody else. Anyways, with that useless into out of the way, here we go with another Porsche. This is a stock Cayenne. It is Porsche's attempt at a SUV. It is technically amazing, but it is one ugly mother.


Something about the iconic Porsche front-end stretched out over that huge area. All the proportions are out of whack.


Try as you might, you can't find a good angle. Even the 3/4 shot can't help this ugly duckling.


The reason I am talking about this thing, is that I saw it's younger angrier sister all tarted up in Ginza this week. I am not saying all the problems are solved, but now at least it looks like it's trying...

...trying to suck innocent kids into the engine that is. Look at that front-end. At speed it must be sucking in a hell of a lot of air. Make sure to grab something bolted down if you see this thing coming. If not, you are liable to be get hurt! Oh, they cleaned up the back too.

And this thing was sitting on some serious rims. The pic doesn't really do them justice. They looked pretty bad ass on this blacked-out beast.

This whole package was put together by Gemballa. They have more aero options and various engine packages than you can shake a stick at. At the very least, they were able to take a fugly duckling and massage it enough to find it's angry younger sibling underneath.

Topic change:

My musical tastes are constantly changing, but then, they don't really change all that much: bass makes all the difference. Gimme a killer beat and I be pleased. Here is a track that is making me nodding my head at the moment. And before you think that your cpu is broken, there is no video, only audio.

That was Redman doing his thing on a track called "Put it Down". Exciting to hear some new Redman after a long wait, produced by Timbaland no less. He sounds all angry and ready to bust some heads. That beat is bringing him halfway to the brawl. Speaking of angry and vicious beats, here is one of my fav d&b tracks from 2005. (no video again, only audio)

Not the best recording of the song and I'm not sure they needed to mix into Prodigy remix at the end, but whatever. A slammin beat for sure. Props to my City Sis for introducing me to that murderous track a long time ago. And just to keep this YouTube crap going, here is some of the same track live.

That shit gives me goosebumps. How amazing would it be to here that live. The track is call Tarantula by Pendulum. They are an interesting group. They seem to be taking Drum and Bass in a new direction. D&B always seems to be changing, but it never really changes all that much. That is a good thing, I hope it never does. And with that, idea of changing, but not really, we have two more shoes to get to.

These turned out pretty well. I'm dissapointed that the purples don't match better. That, and the fact that when I wear my jeans, it is hard for people to see the purple anyways. Oh well...I know it's there. All these shoe lace changes is presenting some new outfit options. Nice. Lastly we have these.

I think these might be the best change overall. I mean, as you all know...I loves me some orange, but that white is bringing the crispness to the game. I'm not sure how long I will keep these changes before I either revert back to the previous colors or try something else. But, changing laces is almost as good as getting new shoes. Almost.
