To Speculate and Procrastinate

I know this blog has been basically mothballed due to a combination of ludicrous amounts of work and what had been a long running, and conscious, decision not to have my computer, or internet, at home. Now I'm adding more work to that schedule, and it's called for connectivity from home. The result? As expected I've been trawling through the huge backlog of unread blogs, unresearched little factoids and so on.
One of the effects of this is that I've been reminded of one of the reasons I believe I wrote it in the first place: to share, vent and speculate. Not to friends via email or messages, not on facebook, but just into the general world around. Case in point:

BMW 6 series Gran Coupe.
Last week I drove down to Munich with a group of colleagues, along the way we were playing Leap Frog with an unidentified but rather attractive BMW (similar to above but Bronze with black wheels). Now that it has sprung to mind due to seeing something or other on a blog, I now know it is a 6 Series Gran Coupe and that it has a load capacity of 530kg.
530kg?! For a relatively big luxury sedan that just doesn't sound very high. I wonder if it's being sold in the US (or Australia for that matter). Add four account managers after a long lunch, a few bags with laptops and prospectūs, and there is barely capacity for the requisite clubs to tackle an afternoon round.

Meh, what do I care, I'm not an account manager

Urban Outlaw

URBAN OUTLAW - THE TRAILER from Tamir Moscovici on Vimeo.

I know this video has been passing around the blogs for a while now but I just got a moment to watch it, looks like it'll have some great shots and maybe some interesting info but the tidbit that stood out for me were the marks on the road at ~3:15....

Times Change

Wow, it's been nearly a year since the last post on here! Not that anyone will be reading anymore but it's odd the factors that collide to prompt me to break the draught: a rare spare moment on the internet, an interesting photo, and an empty office with no one to remark too.

This may speak about me more than anything else but the things I first took notice of in this photo of Times Square in '61 was 2m high "two trouser suits" sign and the amazing condition of the road. If you've ridding NYC recently I'm sure you'll share my astonishment.
