“I wear v-neck shirts. My neck is so fragile man, I can’t wear a regular neck shirt, it hurts. And I especially hate turtle necks. Wearing a turtle neck is like being strangled by a really weak guy, all day. Like if you wear a turtle neck and a backpack it’s like a weak midget is trying to bring you down.”
Now, this is not particularly up my alley so to speak, but I do know two or three people who will love this..
So, I give you, The winner in Class C of this years Fireworks Championship.
For those who care, The choreography was controlled by SmartShow software by Pyromate. Very similar to what’s been happening with the fountains in Vegas for many years. Tracking and timing this accurate for pyrotechnics is new though..

Kurt Cobain is now the world’s top-earning dead celebrity after beating Elvis Presley into second place.
The estate of the former Nirvana frontman, who committed suicide in 1994, brought in an estimated £26 million last year, beating The King by over £4 million, according to a study by Forbes magazine.
Elvis, who has topped the rankings for the last four years, was toppled after Cobain’s wife sold a quarter of her stake in the singer’s back catalogue.
I’m perfectly happy to go the rest of my life without a single more Elvis song.
As the wise man once said..
“Underneath the bridge
The tarp has sprung a leak
And the animals I’ve trapped
Have all become my pets
And I’m living off of grass
And the drippings from the ceiling
It’s okay to eat fish
’cause they dont’t have any feelings”
BMW’s new 3 Series Convertible, due in OZ in the second/third quarter of 2007, will be available initially in 335i format, followed by 330i.
But if tar-wrinkling torque is your thing, wait for the 172kW, 500Nm, 330d Convertible, with second-generation common-rail fuel injection and a torque curve flatter than a 14th Century map of the world.

And I quote, from Patrice’s site..
“I saw this clip this morning of Diddy reflecting on the release of his recent album “Press Play” and I honestly had a Tourette’s Moment. Before I could truly form an opinion, “Negro, Please.” had already flown out of my mouth.
It’s a combination of the delicate background music and Diddy confiding that even he gets scared. See you haven’t even seen it and I bet “Negro, Please” just went through your head.”
We love you Patrice..
I’m well aware bumper stickers are gay, but, if you were ever going to have one, this would be it, no?

The bizarre crackdown was prompted because Vegemite has been deemed illegal under US food laws.
The great Aussie icon – faithfully carried around the world by travellers from downunder – contains folate, which under a technicality, America allows to be added only to breads and cereals.
Australian expatriates in the US said enforcement of the ban had been gradually stepped up and was now ruining lifelong traditions of Vegemite on toast for breakfast.
Kraft spokeswoman Joanna Scott said: “The (US) Food and Drug Administration doesn’t allow the import of Vegemite simply because the recipe does have the addition of folic acid.’’
The US was “a minor market’’ for Vegemite, she said.
for real for real?
