Saturday, January 25th, 2014

 

Pat Out of Hell. Metheny's driving was fine, but his listening habits rocked a community.

Upper Middle Class Woman Leaves 41 Year Old Husband in BMW With Windows Up

Tuesday, January 14th, 2014

House of Horrors. For one man, the overwhelming style and sophistication could not block out the terror.

SUNRISE, FL (Special to TSD AfterDark) Laurie Davidson, the 37 year old stay at home mother of two, decided to go shopping on Tuesday afternoon. She asked her husband Cameron to come along since she expected to be purchasing a few heavy items.

Cameron initially balked at the idea, as he was hoping to catch up on some unfinished business from his home office.  However, Laurie’s persistent pleas and promise of an afternoon romp in the hay won him over.  (more…)

Turn Signals to Be Removed From All Florida Vehicles By 2015

Monday, August 27th, 2012

There is a Reason - Turn, Turn, Turn. Well, there used to be a reason.

TALLAHASSEE, FL (Special to TSD) The Florida Department of Motor Vehicles has announced that it will require all dealerships to remove factory installed turn signals by February of 2015.

“We’ve found that 97.3% of Floridians don’t used turn signals anymore, and of that 97.3%, 46% don’t know what one is.” DMV spokesperson Lamar Hennings said. “In the spirit of the devil may care, laid back lifestyle here, we decided to take a ‘what the fuck?’ attitude and eliminate the use of signals. The hope is that this will give drivers the unencumbered freedom to text while driving, swerve across four lanes of traffic to make a last second exit, and slow down to a crawl and hold up traffic for miles just to check the welfare of a guy on the side of the road on his cell phone or a rogue honeydew melon that’s fallen off the back of a pickup truck.”

Most drivers are thrilled. (more…)

Classic Outtake from STONERVILLE: The Cargasm

Monday, March 14th, 2011

In our collaborative screenplay effort, STONERVILLE, which wound up being Leslie Nielsen’s final on-screen appearance, there were days on the set where we just riffed. This scene wasn’t written into the script, but was a gag we’d pull in college on unsuspecting passengers. Pat Cavanaugh and Brian Guest certainly grasped the vibe of this prank. Though it didn’t make the movie, it did appear as an outtake while the credits rolled.

The Wheel Deal. Chester Slavish at work on something.

NOXEN, PA (Sportsman’s Daily Wire Service) Chester Slavish, an auto mechanic and part time musician has always been told by his father and grandfather that life is an endless abyss of pain and suffering, but if handled properly, could be “half decent.”

The younger Slavish, 42, plays bass in an area country-rock band called Mountain Custard Genitals, but his heart is in everything automotive. (more…)

Even the Sportsman Never Drove This Baby

Friday, July 23rd, 2010

If you could drive one car in the world – any one – what would it be?  For me, it’s 007’s Aston Martin.  It was introduced to the world in the third Bond film, Goldfinger.  Not my favorite of the Sean Connery Bonds, (that distinction goes to From Russia with Love) but certainly one of my favorite Bond moments.

Watch the clip, even Connery salivates over this one – although he’s not inclined to show it.

Maybe in the Next Life

Friday, June 5th, 2009

I have a friend who loves the line “maybe in the next life.” He feels that some things just aren’t meant to happen for certain people. I guess it’s being a realist.  I don’t necessarily subscribe to this point of view.  I’m still optimistic (and perhaps naive) enough to think I can still get it all in “this” life. That is, except when I see something like this.  

I can’t ever see myself behind the wheel of one of these. Though I’d like to.
