New & Improved!

About ten days ago, we started a beta test by adding two new and intensely focused forums – one for traditional hot rods and one for traditional customs. The result of which, as you might have guessed, returned a lot of feedback from some very passionate users. On one side, […]

Focus

I’ve spent the better part of the last three months thinking out a method to refocus the H.A.M.B.. One week I would have an idea, settle on it, and then completely change my mind the next. In the process, I’ve driven my buddies almost as crazy as I’ve driven myself. […]

There Will Be Casualties…

So, this morning I find myself typing feverishly on a 50-year-old Olympia typewriter. I’m not sure why I use this old thing, but it sure as hell isn’t a matter of convenience. This damned device is slow and heavy and primitive. It is a sort of dark industrial green color […]

Color Is The New Black

Color Is The New Black

The eyes of the global sex industry were focused on Vegas last night as industry moguls gathered in the plush desert gardens and ball rooms of a brightly lit hotel that overlooked the strip for the 25th annual Erotic Film Awards. They came from both coasts, in private jets, stretch […]

Fear & Loathing Last Week

Fear & Loathing Last Week

My tribulations from last week was best described by one E.W. McCasey, who writes from California, saying: “You will soon be out of a job, penniless, homeless, and meagerly supported by a collection of desperate women, queers, drunks, and bums of every description if you don’t get your website fixed […]
