#happymotoring: 2014 Buick Regal GS

First episode of my new automotive web series that focuses on the soul of a car rather than the technical data. I know what you’re thinking, “Andrew, cars don’t have souls, especially red ones”. Technically you’re correct, machines do not in fact have souls but they’re a product of someone’s artistic vision and I think to some degree that translates to having an inkling of a soul. Philosophical debates aside, i hope you enjoy this episode and will stay tuned for all those to come.



Through The Lens: Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a holiday that for some is the same thing every year. A gathering of the extended family, a game of touch football, a turkey induced coma, that drunk uncle who undoes his pants at the table. For me Thanksgiving has always been a holiday that was more about friends than family, new experiences rather than tradition. Sure I still like to be somewhere cold and end up eating far more than I should, but it’s always really cool to see firsthand how different people spend the day. This year I ate with my friends’ family while he worked and the dinner was one of the most interesting I’ve ever had. If there’s one thing that’s truly great about Thanksgiving it’s that it’s that a person can share a table with a group of people they don’t know and by the end of the night have made a genuine connection with them. If that’s not the true spirit of Thanksgiving, I don’t know what is. So prior to last week’s national eating contest I asked a few friends to document their Thanksgiving experiences as I knew they we’re going to be unique. Laura Austin went back to the homeland(VT) and Ali Kaukas has been down in Costa Rica for the month at a surf camp. Needless to say I knew there would be an interesting contrast there. Check out their shots after the jump. There’s a few of my own in there as well, though they pale in comparison to the ladies. If you had a particularly interesting Thanksgiving and shot some photos, leave a link, I’d love to see them. Continue reading

Today’s Most Wanted

Spring time is here which means time to actually go to the beach in southern California. For those of you in colder places just think how nice it’ll be to have a new pair of board shorts when summer does arrive. Of course it’s always helpful to have a nice pair for when you’re doin the hot tub thing with a special lady friend too. Get yours at here and remember, simple is better. Board shorts comin halfway down your legs, covered in crazy colors will just make you look like a Pacsun kid 5 years ago.
