Chevy has unveiled the new Camaro Z/28.R racing car that will compete in this year’s IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge racing series, which kicks off in Daytona, Fla., on Jan 24th.
The Z/28.R will be fielded initially by Stevenson Motorsports and CKS Autosport, which both previously campaigned the Camaro SS-based GS.R in the series.
Hey guys, I hope you're all doing well. Just wanted to update you guys on a couple of current events...
Over Thanksgiving, my computer finally decided to compute its last. The mother(fucking)board fried and the PC had been haphazardly built six years ago, so it was obviously time for a new rig. For a few weeks, I couldn't decide whether I wanted to buy a pre-built rig or build one properly on my own - ultimately, building won, and so Project Frankenstein was born. I'm not cutting corners this time... I want my shit to last. So far I bought the CPU, Motherboard, Hard Drive, RAM, Video Card, and Power Supply (spending close to $800 so far). I forgot how expensive this shit was, but it will pay out in the end. I'm even planning to branch out to some PC gaming. Right now, when the loner PC is cooperating, I play some Torchlight II, Puzzle Quest, or Cthulu Saves The World. Once I have the rest of the parts, I'll try to remember to post some pics & specs from the build.
Work has been kinda fucked lately. They recently laid off 200+ people & closed an additional 50 positions, one of which, I was in the process of interviewing for. Once the position (Social Media) reopens, I'm putting every effort into getting it. My department (Machine Support) is fucked up. I've yet to prove it, but I'm convinced that one certain higher-up is the bastard lovechild of Adolf Hitler & Genghis Khan. In the meantime, I have my second job to be excited about. I'm officially the new Social Media Director for SprinklerHUT, a worldwide retailer of international sprinkler & irrigation supplies. One little fact I should mention, it's my aunt & uncle's company. So I'll have this going in my off-time, when I'm not Podcasting (which is going well, by the way).
So, the week of Christmas, I experienced a new first in my life - kidney stones. I'll spare the gory details, but will say that it fucking hurts. Once I passed three of those bastards, I went in for an Ultrasound. They checked me all over - heart, lungs, kidneys, bladder - and I think the Ultrasound Tech was a sadistic fuck, because he was too rough with the procedure. So, two weeks go by, and I get a call this past Wednesday. They found a cyst on my kidney. It's fine, though. This one is small enough that he's going to ignore it for the time being, which is fine with me... I don't need a bigass needle to the back. He gave me some harsher news as well. My heart muscles are enlarged & we're having trouble regulating my blood pressure. I need to start losing weight right away. I'd already started making some changes (like cutting down soda, quitting smoking), so I have that in my favor. To start, Doc has me exercising at least 15 minutes a day. As far as the "diet", I'm considering joining Weigh Watchers. I did that a few years ago, and it worked at the time. I only stopped because the group was at my work & they had to disband it for too few members. I'll start with the Online. I'm also soliciting any input or advice you guys may have to offer. I'm not ready to clock out yet. Fuck that!
Anyway, that's about it. A final note, a few of my friends coerced me into trying the online dating scene. There are two laides I'm currently talking to - one already proving to be superior to the other. Should something more develop, I will definitely let you guys now. On that note, it's 2:12am & I'm ready to fall asleep at the desk. Goodnight.

Now that the GOTY article is live I thought I would share my favorite "moments" from 2013. Not necessarily the best games, just the most prominent WTF or "holy shit that was cool" moments from games I played this year.
Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon: Meet the Dragon. Coming to in a cave on an unfamiliar island, Rex Power Colt hesitates as he exits the cave, just as a blob of viscera drops in front of him. He looks up to see what made the mess and the Blood Dragon's big fucking head is hanging directly over the mouth of the cave finishing off his snack.
Bioshock Infinite: The first 5 minutes of the game is holy shit good, like visiting Rapture for the first time but at a higher altitude.
Forza 5: Prague in a Hennessey Venom. Pulling a clean lap with a Venom on a speed track like Le Mans can be difficult, but pulling a clean lap at Prague with that 1000+ horsepower ass-happy, straight-line monster was top-tier gaming nirvana for me...I'll understand if you don't understand.
Tomb Raider: The battle for shantytown and the boss fight against the pottery samurai...good shit, amigo!
Fast and Furious: Showdown. Demanding my money back for a game that I rented...I won't forget that soon, and neither will the guy at the video store.
Metro: Last Light. Troglodyte surfing...catching a ride with that fisherman guy across the underground lake, only to find out that the Commies had already crossed and stirred those things into a frenzy. What the fuck were those things, anyway?
Ryse: Son of Rome. Storming the English beach while the Roman ships are being destroyed in the surf...it was D-Day with finishing moves and giant chains.
AC IV: Black Flag. I got to be a pirate...and I was fucking good at it.
So Ive done the gym 4 days straight and have burned all together 1,347 calories and did a total of 8 miles on the treadmill . I gotta say I'm very impressed with myself, also to boot I lost 9 lbs of water weight and discovered I was 25 lbs liter then what I was telling people so there's a huge ego boost . I went to a party this past Saturday night and saw some friends I hadn't seen in a few yrs abd said they could help with my job situation in fact they pretty much said I would have a job once they spoke with these people .. Ive been in such a good mood it's not even funny other then spilling a drink and getting slightly annoyed shits been great ..I bought a small $15.00 blender cause I'm starting to juice my foods . I'm hoping to lose the 60lbs by April 1st and if things keep going this way I just may or at least be close either way I come a winner . Oh by the way when I spilled that drink it was with the blender and hit the button with cover off so it went every where ...lol
Thanks for listening
Yup, I bought this game as my first game acquisition for XB1. I bought it because I wanted something to fill in time between the real games I play like Halo 4, TITANFAL, Destiny and the next Halo (teasing, a bit). It seems like the kind of game I can just pick up and beat around a track, then walk away from for months.
So it's an incredible racing experience. The graphics are so good it even got my Wife watching and commenting positively. I'll never be a racer. I'll leave all of the assists on until the cows come home, but that's all I need. I never played more than a few games of any previous racer. They just didn't seem real enough to me. This game does. I even went into multiplayer for one game. One guy chatted to me about stuff and I mentioned this 2old2play forum (the XB1 chat set is incredibly clear). Didn't even crack my windshield while coming second last. Not a bad experience.
Currently, I'm beating up on Old n Achy's and Edie Kaye's Drivatars. Pisses me off to see Dr Killinger roar by. That's been fun and it actually makes me want to race just a little bit more. Cool concept.
Painting? Maybe. I don't know if I'll devote the time. Kind of makes me think of the time I've put into Forge. A LOT of time. Must be cool though, to wear your own rags around the track.
I want to get the Halo 1969 BOSS Ford Mustang and drive it around. Because Halo.
So let's see I've gone to the gym 2 days in a row couldnt go today had to help the fam but back in tomorrow . I decided to try to learn a song since I'm getting back into playing guitar and it's gonna be a Pink Floyd song "What shall we do now/Empty spaces" nothing crazy just the main rythm I got some friends that can handle the rest ,,but I may add some vocals , this is a long shot but something worth trying for . I also went to a birthday party for a friend I had't seen in like 2 yrs and saw some other friends which was awesome cause got to catch up ..I'm still trying to get my diet straight eating wise I know a lot of stuff get's cut out and I'm willing to do it but some of the healthy foods were always kinda gross to me . I'm willing to try protien shakes and do egg whites but I'm also concidering looking into a juicer cause I heard those are good . You guys have any advice/ info on this stuff?
I went on a job interview today, responded to add what I thought was for a customer service position and ended up being for a sales position ? Well no biggie I stayed and did the interview and knew they wouldn't call back which is fine with me cause I'm no salesman thats for sure but oh well better things will come along
So after 5 years I just broke out my music gear that means Mini Vox amp,Boss GT 5, Pro co Rat 2 and my Boss DS-1..I haven't played in so long and my ring & pinky finger on my right hand don't really straighten out from an odd injury or tendon issue. I play lefty if no one knew Anyways it took me about 10 mins to set everything up,figuring what went where and after a little while I pulled out a few riffs very roughly I might add, but I was very impressed with myself. I did manage to play "Im gonna be your god by Slayer but is really The Stooges I wanna be your dog and it didn't sound half bad I must say
I guess there's still some magic left in this old boy who turns 40 this year
Thanks for listening
