I might as well use this as a chance to mention that we may be going-going back-back to Cali-Cali within the next couple of years… but if the streets back home vibe like this every day, I might not even mind being away from Thailand for very long.
Gleaming the Hancock
Just like most other places I’ve lived, California is most beautiful when there’s nobody else on the streets. It’s why driving around before dawn is so damn spiritual.
Super chill but badass… They made a hypercar out of what?
The Reddit Tidal Bore Videos
Sit back, relax, and be amazed by the wonder of cheap smartphones:
And of course, the brilliant Reddit stitch up of all 3 clips: 1 Wave, 3 Angles
So what are we looking at?
This is a tidal bore, a strong tide pushing up a river. This one is locally known as a bono, or, a wave of seven ghosts, because there can be seven successive layers of waves. People surf on these, yo! It seems that the location is Cape Binjai, Sumatra, on the Kampar River. By all means, please subscribe to Rina’s YouTube Channel because she has the best smile even when getting bowled over by angry waves!
Thank you for reading this post and please excuse the crappy manual formatting above (necessitated by irritating autoplay videos) – don’t worry, I’ll never get around to fixing it properly!
The Ghost of Initial D
It’s good to see new blood at Toyota giving a shout out to touge. I miss my Silvia.
Plus, there’s the official successor to Initial D making the jump from manga to anime:
Almost makes me want to throw a 2JZ in the old Crown.

Spotify and Zoom in MacOS 9
The last Mac I bought with my own money was the first mass-produced computer with wifi. It came in a color called Blueberry and ran OS9… I could never bring myself to trash it and it sits today in my outdoor garage with rusty saws and assorted vehicle fluids.
Don’t know if I could ever have done this…
…and I sure wouldn’t be able to now!
Funny thing is, if you watch the whole video, you’ll see others that did it first and are super low key about it… So the final evolution of this stunt is to do it alone, in the moonlight, with no climbing equipment.

Toyota Crowns have always been popular as taxis.
My crown is a rusty old trap car at the moment, daddy needs to save money for a new paint job.

Also saw this in r/Thailand a few weeks back, entitled “Solution to BKK traffic“:
In that post, a user figures out the location in Google Maps – actually in Semarang, Indonesia!
