Thanks man.

I really had no intention getting to that extent, but it was the only thing I could do in the moment.

Now I need to hang tight until tues and hope my orthopedic dr can take me in right away. One of the bones snapped right in half and is pushing up on the skin, so the pain is pretty intense if I don't take a pain killer. My ******* hand looks like it belongs on a 500lb fat persons body.

Got them for $99 at BestBuy. HUGE improvement over the Pioneers. I've always loved Polk for home audio, not sure why I have always been stuck on Pioneer for car audio. I'm now a Polk guy for car audio as well.

You can just look at the build of these speakers and tell they are in a different class than the Pioneers, especially when you flip them over and look at the guts.

Holy shitcakes with applewood-smoked sausage in the morning, I love Manhattan!

After the second pitcher of Sangria at lunch, I decided it was probably best to take the afternoon off. Started walking east from the village, came upon the coolest used book store ever- Strand, "18 miles of used, rare and out of print books." I don't doubt it. Four stories, each one incredibly large and dense. Walked out $65 poorer and about 20 lbs heavier.

Sauntered south and ran into a five block long street fair. Turned down Bowery into Chinatown and browsed through some little grocery stores selling freaky-looking **** I can't even begin to recognize, on through Little Italy, into SoHo (very interesting neighborhood- feels like the set of Sesame Street) and finally back around into Chelsea. About 9 miles in total, which for an out-of-shape guy like me carrying a backpack with 20 lbs of books and a laptop on his back ain't bad.

My feet are ******* killing me.

Seems like no matter how much time I spend here I'm always discovering something new. I've been spending way too much time in the past north of Houston. Turns out there actually is life downtown (and good duck, too.)

Didn't know you were in Manhattan until I saw this. How long you going to be here?

Wayne, NJ is considered part of "here"? Isn't Jersey that brown thing between Chelsea and the midwest?



I've been kind of a regular fixture for the past year and a half, on and off. This one's a relatively quick trip, just building one studio. Got in last Wednesday, probably flying out Friday afternoon.

Too bad. If I had known, you could have run one of my cars at the autocross in the Meadowlands on Saturday. There is one next Saturday if you get tied over.

Dammit. Can't believe I missed a chance at buying a 3rd set of coilovers.

/\ /\ Lucky man.


Holy **** 99/00 Miata valvetrains are noisy.

After adjusting all valves within 0.02mm of FSM spec I thought it would tame this clattery biznatch (bought 7 new shims, then machined them & swapped amongst the other 9).

Now my throttle response & compression are excellent & the exhaust note got ballsier. But this BP4W head still makes its array of industrial equipment sounds.

My car looks like an NB Miata but sounds like a 1960's Triumph. Sweet.

You know what's weird? I was just watching the first Harry Potter (Sorcerer's stone/Philosopher's stone, depending on where you're from). I DL'd a version that was called Philosopher's stone. I then noticed that they had re-shot every scene with the name of the stone in it depending on which version it was. American version was all "Sorcerer's stone" and the version I had all said "Philosopher's stone".

I popped the videotape I have of the American version and did indeed confirm that each scene is exactly the same, with the exception of what the stone is called.

I found it quite odd, can anyone think of why?

Pretty common nowadays. Watch a foreign-language version of any recent Pixar movie. "UP" comes to mind. In my copy, all the writing in the scrapbook is in French.

It's easy in a CGI / digital post world. Was it an actual re-shoot, or just a cleanup in post?

Same here, same with all the captions and credits are too. I just find it odd because it isn't a "lost in translation" sort of thing, it's completely on purpose for seemingly no reason at all. I can't even think of a reason.

EDIT: It was actually a re-shoot. Not just CGI covering it up.
