The Joy of Music

Author: sethskim  |  Category: Various

Since people know I enjoy all kinds of music, one of my members recommended a website awhile back that plays all “kinds of music” for FREE. Yup, you heard me right… FREE. It is called The Pandora Radio, which is sponsored by the The Music Genome Project.

The best part of this is that you can tailor the music according to your taste and even with a particular genre. The Pandora Radio has brought back a little bit of my high school nostalgic days with Erasure, New Order, Pet Shop Boys, Orchestral Manoeuvres (yes, spelled correctly) in the Dark (affectionately known as OMD), Depeche Mode, Chicago, Yaz, and etc. Then I started to think about classic movies like, “The Karate Kid,” “The Breakfast Club,” “Pretty in Pink,” “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” “Footloose,” “Top Gun,” “Sixteen Candles,” and etc. The 80s baby!!

Anyways, I wanted to share the joy of music.

So far in my Pandora Radio list I have everything from Andrea Bocelli to Hillsong to one that is just entitled Divas… haha!

The Car of the Millennium

I grew up with Mattel’s Hot Wheels. I remember just playing with the die-cast metal cars for hours and imagining I was a race car driver. Also, as I was growing up, I idolized Speed Racer and pretended to have my own Mach 5. Do you remember what all those buttons did on his steering wheel? Only true Speed Racer fans would know… haha!

I also, made model cars and painted them for display. Bottom line, I was a car fanatic. Therefore when I saw the new $1.4 million Lamborghini Reventon, my jaws dropped.

They have stated that only 20 of these cars will be made for sale to only “friends and collectors.” Show me the money!

The Reventon has a 650-horsepower engine and it is made completely of carbon fiber laid over a carbon fiber and steel frame. They have even engineered the instrument panel to stimulate a modern jet, which is made up of liquid crystal and it shows a G-force display revealing longitudinal forces in a 3-D image. Incredible!

I just thought I would share this joy with all of you. Do you think we can rent this car out at Enterprise Car Rental? j/k.

This car can definitely go under a semi-truck

Speed Racer’s Mach 5 is still better
