From the Mind of Dario

congratulates Justin Bieber (the first of his name) for now solely holding the title of “Most Hated Boy in the World.”  You had a nice run, Jack Gleeson, but we all know who the real king is ;-) 

I saw the last episode of the mini-series, “True Detective,” last night. Boy that was one wild ride! The show provided superb acting, dialogue, cinematography- the whole 9 yards. I recommend you rent it when it becomes available. It’s just as good (and possibly better) than The Wire or Breaking Bad.

Favorite Line:
Rusty: Everybody judges, all the time. Now, you got a problem with that, you’re living wrong.

I just found out the lame excuse that Ford Motors uses for not importing the Fiesta ST coupe into the USA.  They don’t have the tools in their factory in Mexico to make a coupe version.  Really, Mulally? That’s the best excuse your P.R. dept. could come up with?  We all know you’re scared it might take sales away from the Mustang. And you know what- it probably will. But have you never heard of the Mini, the Civic, the tC? People that want a two door compact will get a two door compact. The question now is whether you want me as a customer or should I go to one of the other dealerships?

Seeing the new Corvette in the wild is totally different then seeing it in a showroom. You can appreciate the lines more and hear the engine on the street. Well done, GM! – View on Path.

Charlie Murphy’s adventures with Rick James in the Abyss.  Basically it’s an extension of the Rick James skit on The Dave Chappelle Show.  It is hilarious!

Living in the capital of nerds (aka Silicon Valley), I forgot that not everyone walks around in dungarees and sneakers.  These gentlemen reminded me that that are still people with style out there.

I am the captain of my soul

Last week I test drove a new Ford Fiesta ST and thought it was the most nimble car I’ve ever driven. And I’ve driven a lot of cars.  The only thing I didn’t like was the fact that #Ford doesn’t sell the coupe version here.  Do you hate America,  Allan Mulally?  There is no good monetary reason that the Europeans get it and we don’t.

Last night I found and went into a Barnes and Nobles that hadn’t closed yet. And keeping with tradition, I read a bunch of magazines and didn’t buy anything. I wonder why they keep closing their stores? (he said with tongue in cheek)

Fugly Watch

This is the Samsung Galaxy watch that sells for 300 bucks. First, I remember as a kid getting ugly digital watches like this for free in a Cap’n Crunch cereal box. Second, how lazy do you have to be that you can’t take your phone out of your pocket? Come on Samy, you’re trying to fix a problem that doesn’t exist.  And judging by your sales figure, most people seem to agree with me.

I was trying to find a old high school crush without any luck.  I can find every form of depravity but I can’t find what really made life worth living.  What use is all this technology if it can’t help me remember my youth. 

Man, tonight’s “The Walking Dead” episode almost matched the intensity of Game of Thrones’ Red Wedding episode.  These are some of the best TV ever.

Ironic that the star of The Fast & The Furious franchise dies in a fiery car crash.  It happened as he was leaving from a charity event for Typhoon Haiyan survivors, so no jokes from me.  Rest in peace,  Paul Walker.
