Work

Ugh!

Movies

Watched the remake of The Magnificent 7 last night. The first half of the movie, while not fantastic, was pretty okay. The second half though, the whole battle in the city, was not good. It was basically violence for violence's sake and was not visually compelling like Fury Road or Dredd. To make matters worse, while the first half of the film was fun, there wasn't much there to attach you to the characters, so when shit finally does hit the fan you're not emotionally invested in their well being. It honestly makes me wonder why they even felt like making the movie in the first place. That said, I loved Vincent D'Onofrio's character for being a burly mountain man with anything but a burly mountain man voice. So, props for that.

Cars

When the Sixth Gen Camaro came out, I wasn't really impressed with their styling design. It really felt like an update on the Fifth Gen's revision. Now that it's been out for a while and I've seen more and more of them on the road, I've changed my mind. They look good.

Friends

I don't know if I said this previously, but another one of my friends finally quit their shitty job and is working for the county's Job and Family Services office now. So excited for them. They're gonna kick ass.

I am so fucked in the head about cars right now that I'm actively considering a Gen6 Camaro.

I am also actively considering a 996.

That the stereotypes of both drivers are anathema to me, I find myself more disquieted by this turn of events than I should be.

Honestly? I can easily see you driving a Camaro in the sense that there aren't a lot of stereotypes around them anymore. They, along with Mustangs, are like the blank template for cheap performance car in much the way a Civic is a car or an F-150 is a truck. Besides the usual criticisms you'll hear for Camaros and some complaints about visibility, I haven't heard anything too bad about this generation. You might want to give it a test drive. You never know.

The 996 though? I hear the upkeep on them isn't a pain like it used to be, but they're still not cheap, and I can imagine you wouldn't like that after a while. Know what European car brand I could see you driving though? Jaguar. Every Jaguar owner I ever met has a hint of old school "punk" about them. You strike me as the kind of guy that rocked denim, patches, and Docs in high school.
