NYC Car Show 2013

Checked in at the NYC Car Show yesterday and I'd have to say, my new car was right out in front as the real fan winner in this, one of the Premier Car Shows in the Country.

Everyone was very enthusiastic about Hyundai's new sporty, yet affordable, Veloster!

In fact when a Model from one of Hyundai's competitors heard I owned a new Veloster, she begged to get a picture with me.

While I consented to pose with her , it really cut the show short for me , after being called out into the spotlight , EVERYONE wanted to hear about my Veloster.  Repeated photo and autograph requests , forced me to cut out early.

I looked at some of Mercedes and Cadillac Sport Coupes, they still haven't been able to incorporate a 3rd door, like Hyundai has done with the Veloster, in their new cars.

Maybe next year. For now, Veloster is what you hear murmuring throughout the Javitt's Center at the 2013 International Auto Show.

My Dad 1928-2013

My dad was something special. I really don't have the words right now but the pictures of him over the years say so much, I will let them start the story.

I'm as mad a s hell and I am not gonna take this ANYMORE!!

From the movie Network (1976): Howard Beale (Peter Finch) tells the public what they need to do....

I believe Finch won the Oscar that year, and while the movie is a satire and does try to show how media can so easily manipulate the viewers thoughts and ideas, for example: Fox, the Tea Party, the Partisan News Broadcasts from all the major networks have been doing this for years. But this scene is special and  aren't we all just Mad as Hell about how this country is being run and by whom?? Isn't it supposed to be by "The People" We are about to vote for President and the 2 Candidates with a chance to win are both flawed, and when that choice has been made they will have to work with a supremely flawed Congress where nothing ever gets done.

We should be Mad As Hell, I think will write that on my ballot.

And the News, I have an idea....take the Ads off !! The News team should not be managed by the Network or  beholding to any sponsors and maybe they could start dealing with the things that are important in this country.

Have a nice weekend....

Argo..Go See It

Argo, starring and directed by Ben Afflect is the first movie I have seen this year that I did not check to see how much longer I had to sit there and watch. I never got bored. It was as good as the reviews I read said it would be. The glasses you see characters wearing we're authentic 70's. Alan Arkin was great, the story was incredible. Ben Afflect was even able to insert a dig on directors in the script , "anyone can be a director". In this case Afflect was better at it than anyone I have had to pay to see at the theatre in a long time and some of his earlier projects were not. This is the best thing he's done since Good Will Hunting.

The theaters at Fenway in the old Sears building were very comfortable, I recommend them to all.

You Tube Video Courtesy Of Seando

You have to stick with this slow starting video and see the Drummer pick up the pace. I have always admired the drummer in a band as they are often overlooked , in the case of this video...there is no chance you will miss the drummer....just wait for it...
