You will probably never own a real Delorean in your life. I checked, there aren’t too many of them for sale and the ones that are, they aren’t giving them away. Why not have the next best thing and that is your own replica of the Back to the Future Mark II Delorean.  This model is a 1/15th size replica of the one used in the Back to the Future movies, including fully-detailed moving parts, lights, and sound effects. Act out your very own time travel adventures, and please, no matter how hot she was back in the day, don’t flirt with your mom.

Here is a list of the cool noises this model makes:

  • First time travel
  • Car trouble
  • Revving up and winding down
  • Opening door
  • Rev up and peel out
  • Engine start-up
  • Return from time travel
  • Screeching halt
  • Time circuit engaged
  • No power

The iRig HD for Guitar and iPad

The iRig HD makes connecting your guitar to your iPad, iPhone or laptop a snap. Since I purchased my guitar awhile back I have been looking for a solution to connect to my iPad and the iRig HD solved this. You simply plug the device into your guitar and iPad and then download the free app called AmpliTube. You now have a mini-studio right in your hands and you can begin recording music or load songs from your computer or iTunes and play along. It’s a great gadget for learning the guitar or learning to play a song.

Times have changed since when I first started playing the guitar. You used to need an entire studio to do what you can accomplish with your iPad or laptop computer. If you are wonder what else they make you can see the irig mic from guitar center. If you are looking to get a start in recording your own tunes or want to use your iOS device or laptop with your guitar I recommend the iRig HD.

In looking over stories about stupid criminals over the weekend there was (as on a regular basis) a recurring theme. Drugs and booze. It’s makes the headlines go around. Who has more fun than people? We couldn’t resist reposting this gem from Toronto Mayor Rob Ford. Thank god we didn’t take his advice or I would have been fired this morning for showing up to work two hours late.

Massage Therapy for Everyone

Next week I am off my first session with a registered massage therapist. I have had a sore neck for months now and have tried everything under the sun to try and fix the pain. I have been to a chiropractor, have tried ice, heat, hot tubs and every cream and ointment you can find. So far nothing has worked and my neck continues to be in pain. So I went to the phone book and found an RMT and had a pleasant phone call with her. I found out that she went to a school for massage, how long she has been providing therapy and what to expect.

I thought I would do some more research about massage therapy and this is what I came across. It appears to work for cats and animals.

Forensic scientists have taken a bottle of Crystal Head Vodka and recreated the face much like you would see in a crime movie or tv show. I have to say when it is all said and done he looks quite happy. Why wouldn’t he be, he has a head full of vodka. Crystal Head Vodka is often mistakenly referred to as Crystal Skull Vodka. If you are interested you can view more information at the Crystal Head Vodka’s Facebook page. The forensic artist who did this is Nigel Cockerton.

I have been in a few music stores the last couple of weeks shopping around for a guitar. On my travels I have looked at a number of other instruments like bass guitars and drum sets. In one store I was looking at an excellent compact drum set and thought for a second about trying my hand at it. I gave up on the thought as I don’t a drummer I can be. It did give an idea though about the funny different things you see people playing as drums.

Stupid Criminals of the Day: 02-16 -2014

I haven’t had much time to post about my favourite subject, stupid criminals. It takes a lot of work to find individual stories and post them each day. Instead I thought it would be just as good if I gave up the Stupid Criminals of the Day collection of links on an ongoing basis. There is no shortage of scientists committing crimes on this planet so it should be easy enough to find a number of daily links.

  • Woman shoots up McDonald’s drive thru because they got her order wrong. Fast food is serious business.
  • Police officer arrested for kicking a co-worker and farting on him for good measure.
  • Man calls 911 because his wife’s zipper was stuck on her jacket.
  • 10 year old caught joy riding in car tells cops he’s a dwarf.
  • Naked “bloody” woman goes on rampage after boyfriend refuses to have sex.

The Time is Now

Do you wear a watch? I wear one and feel naked if I am not wearing it. I have actually gotten half way to work in the morning and turned around to get my watch if I have forgotten it. I even collect a few watches if I see something on sale that  like. I don’t have any luxury watches like a tag heuer aquaracer but I still like to have a fancy watch or two in my collection.

The funny thing is  I never use it to tell what time it is. That’s what my iPhone is for. I wonder if having a watch for telling the time has become obsolete. Just go out in public and watch the zombies with their heads down texting. The time is right there in front of them. They are probably looking at the time without knowing it more than any people in history. No need for a watch. For telling time that is.
