Bargain Box Badasses from Childhood

Complained for a long time they don't make cars like they used to, to the point began feeling like a grumbly old man, but for the opposite reasons a normal person would. Quality's up all across the board, but so are the prices.

The following cars I've all had the pleasure of driving, biased of course as i've owned most, but they were all ridiculously affordable cars brand new, good on gas, and endlessly fun to toss around. If it's not fun to drive, i don't give a damn about it.

1st Gen Integra
Better styling than it's accord hatch counterpart, cheaper than the honda when new. $12,000 bucks got you a surprisingly agile and peppy car that's still more fun to drive than most new entry level cars 22 years later. With the rear seats folded you could almost fit a full sheet of plywood in the back, and add 33city/40hwy gas mileage and your looking at a car most manufacturers are still trying to match today.

Nissan Sentra SE-R
Another $12,000 gem when new. Visually unassuming in stock form, these little buggers were laid out well for the driver, roomy enough for regular passengers, fun loose going into the corners, they managed to always lock in late and feel good through. Always added to the excitement of pushing 'em hard, and the SR20 loved it the harder you pushed.

VW GTI VR6
$20,000 new, but didn't hold their price well. You could pick up one with a couple years on it for half that. Fantastic interior in it's range for the time, decent handling stock, and a whole lotta go packed into a little shell.  Passenger seating left something to be desired, but who gives a damn when you can toss it around a gravel lot like a rally car in total control, then zip past a soap bar mustang on the highway home.

Accord V6 Coupe
$25,000 new, but another that became affordable quickly once it hit the used market. Styling that still holds up, roomy interior, good layout, Fun as shit to drive. Honda's been blowing it for awhile now, making unecessarily bigger and heavier cars while stagnant in the hp department, perhaps they need to look back in their own history books. This thing fit a family of four comfortably, and is svelt compared to even todays fatty civics. I'd still rather have one of these than any of it's successors.

What would you add to the list?

A great result of the unfortunate economy and gas prices, hatchbacks and economy cars are once again becoming legit options to regular consumers, and in turn more appealing to manufacturers to make. Next post, awesome new options that don't require you ditch the fun in order to get a bargain.

Braingasm: Sex and Your Synapses


Braingasm: Sex and Your Synapses.


Mega Fun sex science. I've been heavy interested this year for some reason. 

Super Hype Shit Alert

That's the title down there, not my opinion of it, but without any hesitation, this has all the makings of an instant classic. The kinda shit where, although he's lyrically fantastic, it doesn't even matter what he's saying, the music is just that fucking nice. Icing on the cake if you will. A Must Have, Danger Friends.

South African Electro Dance Party

Africa: Continent (or country, to some sage politicos) of mystery. It's culture is varied and alien to westerners, but thanks to the magic of the internet, no longer totally unknowable. Shangann is genre of dance music largely from South Africa, drawing equally from tradiontal African music, the mos eisley cantina, and the buzzsaw electronics of aphex twin.

Also, the assocaited dancing is awesome.

TiMER


 
Interesting tone, bypasses hokey bullshit. Simple premise I'd never seen before, and done right at that. The lack of alternate descriptors leaves it to Sci-Fi Rom-Com, but bypasses any and all negatives those usually conjure. Just Netflix Watch It Now. I assure you it's fantastic. And there's hot chicks. Really hot chicks.

Pete's World

I've archived all data from my computers dating back to 1997 or so. This is the entirety of a document labeled "the keg is floated" dated aug 2002, but these dates are often unrelaible and it could be a year or more earlier. it's from a folder "pete's world" that peter made on my danger dome era computer for his own personal musings. I suspect he is the author of all but the final line:

the keg is floated
bad noise
what’s chunky T doing?
how come jesse’s truck is outside
but the crazy man is lost
i’ve really got a headache
the sun is comming up
and I am glad that I
don’t have a girlfriend and a kid



peter you are fucked up


I know i didn't write the last line. Any takers?

I'm sure i've posted this before. I don't care.

Cee Lo - Stray Bullets



People been bitching for years about Cee Lo rapping again, like Andre 3k shit, despite the fact he's been doing it all along and then some. I like Goodie Mob, don't get me wrong, and he's manhandled verses above the best of 'em (Dro in the Wind much?) but the main reason I've enjoyed him over the years was his solo albums. One of only a handful of legitimately Batshit Insane people with the talent to back it up. The assholes made songs i love despite John "Blues Traveler harmonica fucktard" Popper cameos.

The first Gnarls Barkley album was pop perfect throughout, the second i can't even make it through a year or two after the fact. 'Lo is best just freakin the fuck out on musical tangents. Stray bullets is the new mixtape good enough to just be an album, with a proper album coming out later this year. But this has some of the finest he's done in years already. Summer jams, Newhart Show lounge shit, 70's funk rock, a song with the b-52's involving Fred Schneider singing about how he likes his Pussy, the balls to put the first Goodie Mob reunion track in forever over a Nick Cave sample. Just fucking listen to it.

'I like it' is my current defacto summer jam. Nuff Said. Album link below dummies.

Pete, did you lose something?

Found this on Failblog the other day, and I'm 90 percent sure this is peter. It's his handwriting, and i think the scratched out last name is "albini"


Okay, so no shit wheatstraw, did you write this? Because if not, there is someone very much like you out there, with your handwriting.

Also, if you did write this, what's scratched out?

Reflection Eternal



Bun B, estelle, and others. Either way a return to form the first one ten years ago made me so excited. Know the live show opening for beastie boys back in the day didn't impress anyone, but this album is immaculate legit shit that only comes around once in awhile. Cruising, chanting, sing along, solid rap and great tracks.

Any premeditated doubts, listen to Back Again and you'll be sucked right in.

So excited they came through on this one, so many late follow ups fail hard, this is a fucking blessing.
