Yeah, Something Came Up
I was going to post the pictures of what my car looks like now with all the changes, but I have now decided that I am going to instead re do the picture page for my car. Besides, something came up.
Over yonder at the other website that I own, one of the members (and the guy giving me free webhosting over there) John has secured an interview with Prime Minister Pete Nice. Unless you know who 3rd Bass are that probably doesn’t mean anything to you. Anyway I will most likely be creating a new page there with the interview and all of that fun shit. I’m also counting down the days until I have to start classes again. Right now it’s 27 and counting. I am only taking one class so I’m hoping it doesn’t suck my entire remaining summer through Christmas dry. I guess I will know soon.
Fuck it, I’ll throw two pictures up.

I Think It's Finished
All of my stuff I bought for my car is now installed. I spent all day Saturday and all day Sunday working on the installation of all the parts. I’m now done and actually feel pretty good that I was able to do some of the installs. I can tell you that years ago I wouldn’t have had the balls to do any of the stuff that I’ve done so far with my car. Shit, Saturday I removed the instrument cluster and dissected it to put the new gauges in. I took the doors apart and installed new door handles and took apart the shifter and installed a new one of those also.
It’s very late for someone like me who got up early on both my days off just to work on my car. Therefore I’m going to get myself off to bed and then maybe do a full report tomorrow with a few pictures.

I Did it Again
Well I had been talking about taking my existing mobile police scanner and installing it into my empty spot in my ‘Stang’s dashboard; the only thing I would have had to do is find a DIN sleeve, custom shape something to fill in the space that this one didn’t fill and then also try to make it look nice… not hard right? Fuck that noise, this weekend I found a new scanner that was made to fit into a dashboard and I ended up buying that and installing it in my dash. I bought the Radio Shack Pro-2055 mobile scanner.
When I bought the new scanner I didn’t know, but it was a clone of my new handheld scanner I had bought almost a year ago; the Pro-97. I know if you’re a scanner nerd you’re probably wondering why that one isn’t on my scanner page, well I’m also rather lazy, especially with the whole webpage stuff. Anyway, as I said, it’s a clone of my handheld which made programming it extremely easy because all I had to do was plug a wire into both scanners and it uploaded all the programmed frequencies from the handheld to the new mobile.
Here is a pic with my dash finally finished; for now. (popup image, might be blocked by popup blocker)

It’s Independence Day
Yes, I’ve noticed that not only have I not been blogging as much lately as I have in the past, I also noticed that for the past two years I didn’t blog on the 4th of July. That’s how traditions get fucked up. Speaking of traditions on the 4th, that would have a few different things involved with it. But the only one I care about is that my neighbors must shoot off loud obnoxious fireworks after it gets dark out. Of course it is summer time, and guess when it gets dark out? At almost 10 o’clock at night, that’s when. I think when we established all of these holidays back in the old days we fucked up a little bit; so I’m proposing a little change, or should I say exchange.
We need to swap out Independence Day with Christmas. Now hear me out and listen to the benefits before you start complaining.
First off, this would bring a little more sense to the stupid sales you hear about when they say “Christmas in July”. You see; now the only thing these people would be lying about was the quality of their products because Christmas would actually be in July. Another thing would be that you will get much better shit in July than in December. Wouldn’t it be nice to go through a Christmas without getting another fucking homemade sweater from your Aunt? Think about it, all the cool summer things you could get, all the toys that your kids could actually go out and play with. There is also the benefit of being able to go outside and escape from the family that is now driving you nuts. Anything cool that you might get for Christmas you now have until 10pm to enjoy before you have to think about going to sleep. Just think, you will no longer have to travel in the middle of winter and risk certain death on the icy roads. I’m sure there are many more benefits that you could enjoy by having Christmas in July, but let’s move to Independence Day in December.
The first benefit is that it gets dark around 4pm and your degenerate neighbors can now light off their fireworks well before you go to sleep. Another benefit is that your ground and roof are most likely covered with snow so if one of those illegal fireworks that cousin Jeb brought back from Mississippi lands on your roof, it probably won’t cause any fires. You don’t have to worry about mosquitoes biting you outside; in fact nothing will be biting you in December aside from a possible stray rabid dog or perhaps frostbite. Hey parents, think about this one here… your kids won’t be home for two weeks over the last week in December anymore because it’s only a one day holiday. That’s right, no scrambling with daycares to figure out what to do with those pesky children for the two weeks. The benefits keep pouring in and I see no negatives here either.
A side plus is that all those other holidays at the end of the year can do a little more shining. Hanukkah and Kwanzaa can share the end of the year without Christmas breathing down their neck… just a few fireworks.
