Starting The Basement Finally & A Very Accurate Comic

Well I finally have gotten started on finishing our basement, with a little, I mean a lot of help from my best friend Joe. It's insulated now and we have the sub floor material, so it's a start. Don't really have a time plan to finish everything, but I figure when ever Joe is available to help me(because I really have no clue what I'm doing) is when the next chunk will get done.

Check out this comic.

Says it all as far as I'm concerned!!

Sorry Honda, But Torque Wins! Also Cool Song/Video

Last night I finally got to drive the new VW GTI. If you haven't heard about this car it is a powerhouse hot compact. Turbocharged 2.0L 4 cylinder 200hp, 207 lbs/ft of torque. The thing is amazing! I love Honda but I think I've found my next car. They offer it in 4 door, plus they offer it with a DSG 6spd automatic that is probably the best transmission in production right now. Yes a die hard Honda man is now planning on buying a VW, but man if you drive it you'll understand! See what I mean below.



Also check this really cool song/video from Badly Drawn Boy. I discovered it last night while putting together an IKEA sideboard. I had Bravo in the background and they played this video. I heard it and it caught my ear. The video is something that most are not today, unique. Enjoy!

Music Page Update

Just to update everyone that my Audiri.com page has changed. The site has changed it's name to Stage.FM which should be easier to remember and spell. So my url there is now stage.fm/moniz. If you go there using the old url, it will redirect for the time being. The link on the side here has been renamed and adjusted. Adjust your bookmarks accordingly. Cheers!

Happy New Year!!

Well 2007 has arrived and 2006 has been regulated to the dust bin. Thankfully. It was not a good year overall with the death of my father in law, but we, as many others who have lost loved ones must and will persevere.

We rang in the New Year by going out to dinner with both our mothers (great steak!) and then watching the Beverly Hills Cop Marathon on Bravo. Man are we a bunch of party animals or what! My mother in law and my wife were both half asleep when the big moment arrived. Personally now that I'm a little older I prefer my New Years celebrations to be more low key. It's just a number anyway. Do you get excited when the odometer in your car rolls over? I know I don't so what's another year? Hope as always the new year is better than the last.
