Car Fun

Well, it’s Sunday, and you know what that means: it’s time to remove a random part from my 240sx!

Let’s just open the hood and take a look. Oh, check out this thing.


The lucky winner!


Who even knows what the heck this thing is? I probably don’t need it.


Welp, it’s gone now.

Hey, it still runs!


Tune in next week when I remove another random part and hope the car still works!

The 5th of November

My favorite made up holiday, the 5th of November, is approaching. I say it’s made up not because there is no day between the 4th and the 6th days of the 11th month of the year, but because that day is special to Americans only in the movie “V for Vendetta.” I realize there is an actual historical significance to that date, it being Guy Fawkes day, which brings me to the point of this post.

I will be watching V for Vendetta on the 5th of November as I’ve done for the past two years, I will be quoting the “Remember, remember, the 5th of November…” poem on all of my social networks, and this is all because “V for Vendetta” is an incredible movie, not because I have some sort of weird idolization of Guy Fawkes. So, if you’re the type that likes to point out that Guy Fawkes wasn’t actually a good guy or a hero or whatever, just save your cynicism. I like the 5th of November because it’s kind of fun, just like holidays should be. No need to try and ruin that. :)

Terribly boring generic blog post

The Skrillex show on Friday night was…um…crazy? I don’t even know how else to describe it. Definitely the coolest stage I’ve ever seen. Next up is Panic! At the Disco later this month. They have been at the top of my list of artists to see live, so I’m pretty excited to finally get to see them. Now I just need Sierra Skyline to come out here and Fall Out Boy to get off of their hiatus so I can see them again. :D

For the past month and a half or so, I’ve been rewatching Sailor Moon. It’s kind of awesome and kind of bad, but it’s a classic. I finally made it to Sailor Stars (after the atrocity that was SuperS), so I’m coming to the end. Good times.

Went to see Drive today. I…um…wow. It wasn’t really about driving or cars or anything like that. It should’ve been called “Awkward Dialogue Scenes.” It had a terrible soundtrack, and as a whole, it just didn’t jive with me. Yet, the critics love it. It really doesn’t take a whole lot to make me like a movie, but that one just wasn’t that great.
