Here came this thing barreling around from behind other cars a few lanes over. I guess he though his speed could to go around anything? Then I see all four wheel wells and brakes pouring out smoke and the car had snapped sideways. I floored the gas and he just missed the back end as the car spun around 2-3 times. I was happy to park the car three minutes later in the garage. I have no clue where he thought he was going? This kind of thing belongs only on a race track.
    Itís a bit much for the road, perhaps, but there are far more powerful cars out there. Hell, even a base model Corvette is faster in a straight line. For me, the power of the GT350 isnít the big draw; itís the handling. Itís the best handling Mustang of all time.

    More the statement was to his antics than the car. I've driven it on the track and there is a very short list of things faster than it there.

    I just finished Search Party season 3 and it was brilliant, as to be expected. Started Doom Patrol S2 and it also continues to impress—how they can take what is essentially a team of loser X-Men and turn it into a deeply engaging character-driven drama while not losing the off-the-wall weirdness of the source material is a mystery to me.

    But right now, I’m loving HBO’s Perry Mason. I love a noir detective story and Matthew Rhys is a fantastic actor. If you’ve seen the Americans, you already know this. Orphan Black powerhouse Tatiana Maslany is also in it, but her role is yet to fully bloom. John Lithgow is predictably good and while Juliet Rylance doesn’t have the same quiet gravitas as her stepfather, she’s more than holding her own and is stealing a few scenes for herself as well.

    And it’s once again got me wondering if I could pull off wearing a hat. Would that be a classic touch or would it be a douchey one?

    TV you just love (or at least really like)

    Iíve only watched the first episode and wasnít all that impressed. I thought it was dark and plodding. Yeah, I know, noir. But even so...

    The fact that they take the mystery out of it by showing whodunnit in the first episode was also not helpful.

    But I really like the cast so Iíll keep watching at least for a few more episodes and see if it gets more interesting.

    one night I dreamed I was locked in my fathers watch, with Ptolemy and twenty one ruby stars mounted on spheres and the primum mobile coiled and gleaming to the end of space and the notched spheres eating each other's rinds to the last tooth of time and the case closed - John Ciardi ...

    I wouldn't shy away from a hat. The tricky part is finding a hat you feel comfortable in. I've seen Brad Pitt and McQueen rock these driving hats:



    Some of Pitt's hats are clearly outside my comfort zone.

    I like to wear flat caps (I call then Chappies). I think you should give it a try.

    Also I need to star the Perry Mason series but you can't binge them unfortunately. I'm letting a few accumulate before I start.
