landing spot. will be interesting to see how he does.
Back on Tuesday this week, hooray! There was a bit of confusion about last week, but I'll try to make the thread topic a bit clearer.
So, this week, you get to pick 3 cars for your hypothetical garage, from 3 decades (1 car per decade). Which ones do you pick? Will anyone pick a Malaise Era car? For Example, my garage:
- 70's - 1978 CJ-8 Scrambler (My family hauler/rock crawler)
- 80's - 1987 Porsche 959 (my everything)
- 00's - 2008 Audi RS4 Avant (my dad-mobile/winter car)
Anyone taking the Beast of Torino? A Model T? An old Caddy?
The Desert Trip concert that was announced last week for the weekend of 10/7-9 has been extended for a second weekend (10/14-16). The concert is at the Empire Polo Grounds in Indio, CA (where they hold Coachella), and features:
Fri: Bob Dylan and the Rolling Stones
Sat: Paul McCartney and Neil Young
Sun: The Who and Roger Waters
I'm excited to see the second weekend since that is a Bye weekend for Michigan Football. Now I can still go to NYC for the Rutgers weekend. Win-win!
A little over 2 weeks ago I lost one of the best friends I've ever had. He was 33 years old and died due to liver failure from too many years of excessive drinking and drug use.
This guy was easily the most talented (artistically speaking) person I've ever met. Incredible tattoo artist and an amazing painter. I've had a painting he painted for me hanging on my wall in my bedroom for about 4 years now.
He was also way too goddamn smart to die like he did. Basically he killed himself.
I've s pent the last couple of weeks moping around not really sure how to cope with the grief. That's part of the reason I'm posting this now. Putting things in to words seems to make me feel better.
If you have a loved one who has a problem with addiction, talk to them, let them know that you love them. Let them know that you will have their back no matter what. Mostly let them know that they aren't alone.
Thanks for allowing me to get this off my chest. If its too much feel free to delete it.
