Supercar Sunday - TVR Sagaris

I have been a fan of this ever since it was conceived on paper.
Look good don't it. Pity TVR built it........meant that sales were low
But drool away

Supercar Sunday - 2 generations of Lambo

Saw this and couldn't stop watching. Amazing seeing 2 generations of the LP series side by side.

Supercar Sunday - Nissan GTR

FYI - as soon as you sit in one of these......your dreams of driving/owning other supercars goes out the window. Don't believe me? Well that just shows that you haven't sat in an R35/R37 yet.
They did a fantastic job on this car.

Supercar Sunday 1 - McLaren

As some of you know, I have a strong fascination is super-cars/sports cars. So I figure I let you in on some gem images/movies/sounds.....of this fantastic arena of motor vehicles.

So here is part one. If you like Engineering, Design, Architecture, marketing.......or even just cars - you will love this.

Alain Massabova - a hero to all who feel they are "too old"

Recently spotted this.......Alain is a 40 year old frenchman, but that's has not stopped him from literally doing ballet on a bike.

 The video is very inspirational, and the music is fantastic. Alain I take my hat off to you - after spending all day with a crying boy, and worried that I am going to have to stay up all night to finish a project. You just motivated me.

Got some new fandangled beer to try......

Well turns out my creative genius has won me some boundary road beer. (http://www.stoppress.co.nz/blog/2012/05/show-punmanship-win-beer)

So I have been test drinking this stuff for the last week. And come to the following conclusions.....

Mumbo Jumbo:
Interesting Pale Ale. Not a huge fan of indian pale ales - but not one to say no to free beer either. Has quite a long taste, and does taste a little like pond water. For some reason it also is very good at making people appear tired.
Goes very well with nuts and fruit for some reason. Seems to contrast the distinctive taste......so if your not enjoying it as it is.......try having a couple of slices of mandarin or some raisins with it. Turns the mud water into a whole new flavor set.

In summary - If you love pales ales, you will love this more than your first shag. If your not a pale ale fan, have it with something (food wise) and then you will taste the good parts of this beer while avoiding the long bitter ones. 

Chocolate Moose:
Note; I am huge Chocolate fan. But unlike my wife - I love everything but dark chocolate. She loves only dark chocolate. This causes interesting shopping trips.
This beer is stuck in between milk and dark chocolate mouse in terms of taste. Yes, you heard me right - its a beer that DOES taste like chocolate mousse.
At first your palate is not used to drinking chocolate mousse - so initial reactions are "Urgh! WTF! This tastes funny!"........................but hang on kiddies it does get better.
Towards the end of the bottle you have adjusted to this brand new world, and while you won't run to the bar to get another.....likewise you won't say no if someone offers to get you another.
The chocolate taste would go fantastic with some form of meat. This would make a good mead to have with your leg of lamb. I felt disappointed that was not eating steak at the time, because it would have been fantastic to drink this from a Stein while having a steak.

In summary - If you want to drink something different, this will be it. This is not a beer - this is a chocolatey mead brew. Eaters of chocolate will be confused. Drinkers of stout will be confused. But don't worry it will grow on you.

Basically you should at least try both. I mean you only live once.

Cyborgs Now!

Hi guys,
Lately I have been pretty busy with a few things off the grid. So I haven't been posting much lately.
One of these things was a I got to kick back and play a bit of xbox. Was playing Deus Ex. So you can see where the inspiration came from

As an engineer, and a tech guru, Cybernetics is a familiar ground for me. And seems that the marketing team at Deus Ex think people needed an update as to where we are in the current day with Cybernetics/Prosthetics.

Its a great watch - I recommend you spend the 15 minutes or so to see what people are doing around the world.
