Dude, Or Douchebag: Wheels

Dude, Or Douchebag: Wheels

You know how some women look at a man’s shoes to figure out if he’s cool?  Yeah, if that’s new information to you, fellas, you may reconsider those Topsiders.

Only In LA: Can’t Use My Legs, But I’m Drivin’ The Bentley Today!

Being stuck on the 405 freeway (the nation’s most notoriously congested road) or being stuck on the 405 and being passed in the carpool lane by this monster: Ug.  That’s a tough one for me.  I’d LIKE to think that I’d be so excited to see the new Lambo Aventador that any less than fuzzy feelings would immediately disappear.  And one can’t help but wonder–...

Only In LA: 99 Cent Beemer

Only In LA: 99 Cent Beemer

I originally took this photo because I wanted to comment on the subtleties of the aftermarket parts, showing how a little restraint can be the difference between a Dude and a Douchebag. However, then I realized that to anyone living outside of LA, a tricked out late model BMW at a 99 Cent Store may seem really strange. And to you, dear reader, I say–...
