Music: electric hellfire club - night of the buck knives [altamont mix]
dk's cure for the Missed The Party Blues:

-take one new subaru, roll down all windows
-tune radio to KZSU during house/techno show and set volume at edge of distortion
-repeat 1 doz. times or until you can hear _oontz_oontz_oontz_ from the far side of the service bay


you mean profits are more important to halliburton than the health of our enlisted? well, i am shocked. SHOCKED.

quantum mechanics has always been a subject that threatened to make my head explode. but i'm glad someone gets it.

& in the automotive world, it makes me smirk to see ford following GM down the same road to hell. but... if there had to be an automaker that saved itself by acquiring mercedes-benz and all their chassis wizardry, couldn't it have been a company with a little more initiative? c'mon, mopar, can we take 3/4 of a hemi, stick it into a c-class chassis, and call it the new sub-$20k Dart or what? trickle us down something a little less gheigh than the crossfire already!

the problem of dc is this:

mercedes is so bad on quality and reliability they had to poach engineers from chrysler to save themselves.

never forget that the most qualified to speak about quantum interaction, are those that are the most ready to admit that they don't fully understand it in the slightest-

and i will not hear you talking shit about mopar: http://scosol.livejournal.com/476989.html

hey, far from it- they're obviously doing _something_ right.

and i like the looks on the challenger concept, but unless there's an SL chassis under that skin i'll pass.

all i'm saying, though, is that they need to use their german hardware to attack the lower end of the market. like i mentioned- take one c-class sedan, add one base-model-magnum V6, retro-reskin and call Dodge Dart, sell car that will stomp most 4-bangers for a profit at $22k; low enough to be "affordable" without being "cheap", while leaving the charger's market share alone.

apparently crossfires are somewhat popular in europe. i'm not sure what that tells us, it just struck me as amusing.

word to the oontz.
