~ There is no reality, only perception

Yesterday I visited the Performance and Custom carshow at Elmia in Jönköping, Sweden. Special guest at the show was car designer and builder Chip Foose. I was hoping to get his autograph on some part from my car, or atleast some t-shirt, but he was only signing posters so I didn’t bother staying in the huge line for that. There were some very nice cars though, alot to see, but also alot of cars that just don’t float my boat at all. But here are just a few of my favourites, including a car that I hope to be my next one in a couple of years or so, the Chevrolet Camaro 2010 :).

I’ve been pimping my ride a bit (Dodge Charger R/T 2006 5.7l). I have my new summer tyres ready to go on the 22″ rims, Dunlop SP Sport Maxx (265/35R22), can’t wait for the winter to finally be over. Last week I also fitted my new exhaust and cold air intake filter, just to get a better sound. After doing much research online I decided that Flowmaster exhausts had the best sound and I ordered a complete catback-system with super-44 mufflers. I also ordered a K&N cold air intake-filter and had it installed. Here are some pictures and also a video I made to let you hear the sound of my ride before and after. Let me tell you, it’s worth it :).

Say Sherlock Holmes the other day, and I think it was actually pretty good. I’m not too sure about the idea of Sherlock Holmes as a super-hero with ninja-skills, but it is well made and exciting to watch.

I’ve been pretty inactive here the last few months, so I’ll try to catch up. I’ve seen several movies since my last entry, but I’ll only write of some of them. I will also share latest news about my ride.

2012

Saw “2012” yesterday, another end-of-the-world movie, I like those. I was a bit afraid that this one was too American, but it wasn’t that bad. But yet the movie didn’t bring anything new that you haven’t seen before in “Deep impact” or “Knowing” for example.

A few days ago I suffered from disk failure on two disks in my RAID5 array, which forced me to re-install the server from scratch and restore it from older backups. The server is soon up again and Penskyfiles Radio will be online with it.

Saw Avatar yesterday, seems to be the hype movie of the season. It’s an animated movie about an alien world that humans wants to exploit for a rare mineral, no matter what the cost is for the native humanoids. It’s a pretty good movie, but for me it was abit too much of fantasy and fairy-tale things in how the alien world Pandora works, it would have been even better with more science. But it’s still good and gets a high grade from me.
