I hope I don't have to think about this seriously for years to come, but what would I want as my next car. I would love to have a car that would keep me away from the gas pump. Nothing would be nicer in my auto universe than never having to pay for gas again.

So, would alternative fuels like hydrogen work for me? Nah. I would prefer to plug my shiny new ride into a wall socket and let it "refuel" while I sleep or while I work. I wouldn't miss stopping at QT once a week at all.


I don't want a "traditional" looking electric car. I want something that looks like a powerful gas guzzler. Maybe something along the lines of a muscle car. You know a '69 Chevelle. I want it to look like it could burn the tires off while going 0-60 in 4 seconds.
Come on Ford, GM, Honda, Toyota, etc. Its time to step it up. Create something I would actually want to own. Otherwise, I have to hope my SUV lasts forever.
To recap.

Not this.

Music That Stops the World

Eating lunch at my favorite sushi place with my favorite lunch partner Queentuffy, we started discussing the music playing over the restaurants speakers. The discussion centered around what music will make me stop what I'm doing to listen. If you looked at my music library, you would think that I only like one type of music. With a the complete catalogue of Metallica, Disturbed, Seether, and others of similiar ilk, I would agree it is slanted a certain way. However, my tastes bridge more gaps than expected. My list of music that stops my world proves this. No matter what I'm doing these songs make me stop and listen. They are listed below in no particular order.

  1. The Fray - How to Save a Life.

  2. Snow Patrol - Chasing Cars.

  3. Kelly Clarkson - Since U Been Gone.

  4. Metallica - For Whom the Bell Tolls.

  5. Katy Perry - Hot N Cold.

  6. Black Sabbath - Paranoid.

  7. Flock of Seagulls - I Ran.

  8. KISS - Detroit Rock City.

  9. Offspring - Gone Away.

  10. Papa Roach - She Loves Me Not.

These are the top ten of world stoppers for me. Some are because I learned to play these songs and others because they call to me. I have the radio on all day while at work and love it when any of these songs are played. Problem is more often than not a coworker will stop by right as one of these starts. How do you politely tell someone to go away so not to interrupt the song? So if I ignore you, chances are one of these songs are playing. I hope you understand.
