Talk About A Sidecar!

leave a comment »

It’s more than just a conceptual design: this thing is BUILT!

A Laverda motorcycle with a supercar sidecar!

Perhaps the rickshaw of the 21st century? Modern taxi? As for the sidecar, easy in, easy out. The bike, easy on, easy off. Perfect cruiser for a ride on the PCH.

I’m Not Crazy Afterall

Ha! It’s true when they say you are never alone in this world, especially when I find an entire online group of people that also wish they had a pet elephant!

Elefante

Elephants are probably my favorite animal, I just realized, after looking back and realizing that some of my favorite possessions were Elephant-related.

I wish I had a mini Elephant as a pet.

News to Me

leave a comment »

Everyone that knows me know that I am clueless when it comes to the Korean pop scene. But from friends that have listened to K-Pop, I am familiar with Boa from over the years.

So maybe I’m the last one to know, but when did BOA come to the US and become part of the Universal Music Group?!

Although I’m not one to like something just because it’s Korean, I do think it’s fantastic that K-Pop is still huge in Asia and is making its way to the US. I have no idea really what is going on in the K-Pop scene, but I know it must be freakin’ challenging to have a Korean girl become the next US pop hit, so congrats to BOA (is it “BoA” now? or is that just my bank of choice?).

Check out a video of hers, “Eat You Up”, here on YouTube!

Absolutely Beautiful Synth

leave a comment »

This Steampunk modular synthesizer is absolutely beautiful and stunning. Words that come to mind right away are vintage, theatre, radio, skill, detailed, time-consuming (many parts done by hand), piece of art, European, plays, script, and … “knobular”.

The Notebook Grill

leave a comment »

Last night I got a chance to try out the notebook grill! It’s a small-scale grill that you can collapse and carry easily with a handle. The grill is an A+R exclusive item. Thanks to my sister for a birthday gift card, the day I decided to use it, I found what I wanted right away.

I first saw this grill online (there is a new stainless steel version out now, I just noticed: http://aplusrstore.com/product_detail.php?show=product&pid=397) and was immediately attracted to its sleek and simple design and portability.

I drove to Fashion Island in Newport Beach after work one day. As soon as I got out of the car, I saw “Design Within Reach”, and thought I could find something cool there to buy. Headed straight for it, looked in the window and right away noticed the notebook grill that I had seen online couple months earlier. Walked right in, said I wanted to buy the little grill in the window, and they said, “Fantastic! We have only one left.”

We had about 13-15 people last night in our backyard for a bbq. We were able to use this notebook grill and another grill we already had. The notebook grill was great for cooking our hotdogs. The only things to worry about is not having a lid to cover the grill, but I think getting a large pot lid to place over the food in the future would work fine. It uses coals, which is nice to not have to buy propane or have greasy leaks. It’s definitely easy to clean and carry, so I recommend it for the beach, park, or road trips.

I’ll be sure to post pictures from last night’s bbq soon!

South Korean Police Cars

A porsche, Lamborghini, and Ferrari as police cars? Just makes sense, at least in South Korea:
