my good buddy tommy miceli

here’s some video of my buddy tommy miceli at this past weekend’s NHRA action in englishtown, nj. i would probably soil my pants if i had to run a 7.2 quarter-mile at 184mph on two wheels.

my escort, the daily work commuter car, tops out around 70mph on the freeway with a tailwind.

busy week links

this week is busy with two graduations and a couple birthdays, all with the nba finals happening at the same time. whoever invented the DVR should be given some sort of nobel prize for science. squeezed into this schedule, i found the time to collect some links for your reading pleasure:

-> 15 facts about wealth and equality in the US. seems like finland or sweden would be good for mom and dad because of their great social systems. it would also be good for the boys so they could hook up with some hot green-eyed blondie [sfgate]

-> like the iphone form factor but want to run android so you can have flash? this team is dedicated to it [taranfx.com]

-> i got inspired by these pictures [below] and am going to try this out after the hubbub. so many projects and things i’d like to try out, but getting called out by the son to play some baseball or make paper airplanes makes me forget them. this means that i’ll probably end up trying these things when the boys are 15 and don’t want to hang out with dad anymore [noupe.com]

we need more phone cam videos

its great to watch live, uncut street action from our cell phone video cameras. the best is the crowd reaction around 0:29. OOOO.
