Freak Of The Week: Funky Jungle Bus

Warning: this post is likely to aggravate symptoms of VW van-envy, modern-American malaise or general dropout, bar-centric desires. A couple of my close friends are traveling through Mexico for a few months. I’m going to restrain myself from doing a diatribe of my jealousy and irritation over their current situation because they make up for it by sending me things like this: Oh that it...

Freak Of The Week: Mr. Off-Road X5

There are few things that the BMW X5 is great for. These things include: Costco runs, surf trips and picking up overseas visitors from the airport. I should know, I’m currently on my third.

Look at this badass version from George Barris that I spotted on the freeway a few years ago: So good. Or my beloved Big Gay Prius (& fellow Freak of the Week alum, read it here): Lovin’ you from here, pal. But just last week,...

Freak Of The Week: Mobile Messaging

I saw it first from afar. I was rolling up to the local library to snatch some offspring, when, from the far corner of this parking lot a glimmer of pastel painted freakiness shone in the distance: An early model Kia, oh this was gonna be good.  Some all seeing eyes? Even better.  What revealed itself was a DIY doozy of rudimentary images and inspirational,...
