Brammo Blog : Still supporting the 3 day weekend…but dang I’ve missed a couple of days…Slacker Nation Unite.

10 08 2012

Blog 31: Friday, so blog is not a blog at all. It’s just your imagination, once again, running away with you….

+++

Today is a day for a couple of mash ups and a short bit about the wife rolling her beautiful eyes at me… sigh.
Still I keep promising a Laguna Seca Blog…but LIFE seems to enjoy getting in the way. Double Sigh. It is coming…soon.

+++

So I love taking images and adding the Enertia to them…I am horrible at it, but I count that as part of the “charm”.

Today I add the Empulse to a couple of photos.

+++

It is Friday…the day to plan your Great Escape

I actually met Steve McQueen** once. It was his heavy drinking stage and he was a bit bloated and I remember he was quite impressive in how much he put down. I was at Chez Jays in Santa Monica with my father. It was one of his “divorced daddy” days and he usually took me and my brother to the bar. We would sit at the bar and eat peanuts and drink “Captain Kangaroos” (which were really Shirley Temples, but we didn’t want to drink Shirley Temples, so the bartender just renamed the drink for us). I was 6 or 7…maybe 5? A bit of a blur…those Captain Kangaroos were STRONG.

Small story: The other night it was raining, thunder, lightning, the sky was an orange and gray color even though dusk was over an hour away. It looked like it could hail…or worse. Ominous, but lovely.

I was going to meet my lovely wife and lovely daughter for dinner; along with my older brother and a close friend, Margret, who were already at the Tavern.

So I’m leaving the house: there is a car in the garage, there is a pickup truck out front, there is the Enertia. Guess which one I take.

I get to The Barley Room soaking wet, big smile on my face. The wife looks over and slowly shakes her head and rolled her eyes in such a way that would make a shark at a feeding frenzy jealous. Poor woman is married to an idiot.

Till Next Time…

Bonus. Non-Brammo related…

I made this the other day and my daughter made fun of me…”Dad, you know there are a thousand images like that on the internet.” “I made mine first.” “Uh, no.” “Well I made mine before I saw any of the others.” I get no respect.

I’m proud of my tire tracks, even if they are not at all the same as the Morse code tread of the Curiosity. Kinda cool how the tread spells out JPL in Morse code. Geeks, gotta love them.

Ps.  NASA, I’m loving the images from Mars. We live in “wondrous” times.

**Of course this is not Steve McQueen at all. Yes, he was a great motorcycle rider and could have done the jump easily, but the studio wouldn’t let him. So this is his stunt double.





Brammo Blog: There is no Final Frontier…So keep pushing on.

Blog 30: Dang Olympics AND Space Exploration are messing with my blogging time.

+++

There is a war waging inside of me: The inner geek is loving the Curiosity landing…freaking genius. The inner jock is loving the Olympics. And the inner blogger is taking a nap. Sigh, can’t we all just get along??

So yesterday I missed my First Day of Seca blog. I hope to do that one tonight and make today a double blog day.

But first…a quick and easy blog…It is my uneducated attempts at marketing and publicity for Brammo, Mars Style.

+++

Only one Enertia ad….Brammo is pushing the Empulse now, so….

+++

+++

I will make a few Olympic ones, but have to be careful as the Olympics go after EVERYBODY who uses their name or images…Crazy.

+++

Till Next Time…

PS…It has come to my attention that Ryan Reynolds wanted a Mission R electric motorcycle, but Mission only made the one race bike and it wasn’t for sale at any price. So Brammo get Ryan Reynolds an Empulse R like yesterday. It will be great and easy publicity. The freaking story writes itself:

Ryan Reynolds, who has played both DeadPool and The Green Lantern (and was married to The Avenger’s Black Widow) drives a Brammo Empulse electric motorcycle….

It would be all over the press in like ZERO* time…and it would be good for Brammo to work fast before some other company* jumps in…

I’ve always said Brammo needs to get a bike to Brad Pitt since he loves motorcycles. Ryan Reynolds would be almost as good and he already wants a fast electric motorcycle. The Empulse is the only “fast” production bike available.  And,since Mr Reynolds is Canadian, he could end up being a spokesman for Brammo when Brammo sales start up in Canada, eh.

google image search Ryan Reynolds Motorcycle and you get tons of photos…I will have to “shop” one of these later…
