Happy Tuesday!

Iphone fun again. Here's one of the more interesting Beetles I saw a couple of weeks ago at the show. The car didn't look like it was in working condition based on the tires and interior. I think this was more of an art installation - pretty cool!

 

BTW - the VW ads during superbowl were my favorite! Worth checking them out

'I *heart* Farfegnugen' On Black It's much better on black.

 

I have a special place in my heart for Volkswagen because my parents had a blue VW Bug. Five of us (my mom and dad and older sister and brother and I) crammed into that little thing and drove across the country to visit relatives during our summer vacations (California to Canada and Minnesota). Unbelievably, my mom managed to fit all five of us and our luggage in that car. I cried when my parents sold it.

 

Years down the road, when I was in high school, I dated a guy who had a yellow VW Bug (his parents actually owned it). He's now my husband. :-) We spent countless days and nights in that Bug, and I'll never forget the first time he tried to teach me to drive a stick shift when I was sixteen years old. He was yelling "shift, shift, shift!" and I thought he was yelling "sh*t, sh*t, sh*t!" He isn't a yeller or a cusser, so I was laughing hysterically while he was holding on for dear life. We laughed about this memory a few moments ago, and Brent said that it seemed like a lifetime ago. More like 20 sweet years.

You might think Volkswagen, of all car companies, would argue the best part about driving is the bit where you're driving (i.e. "farfegnugen"), and that drivers are, you know, wanted. Not so any longer, friends; looks like the higher ups got the Stanley bug and pimped their ride -- though not in any normal sense of the vernacular. They've begun showing off a new cloak and dagger prototype vehicle dubbed the VW Golf GTi "53 plus 1" (you're allowed not to catch the Herbie reference), which apparently uses a rig of laser sensors, GPS, and a radar net to drive itself at speeds of up to 150mph. We'll give you a moment to let that sink in. Now, why they had all this technology under wraps while Stanford was busting ass overhauling one of VW's own Touaregs for the DARPA Grand Challenge is beyond us, but unlike those "driving pleasure" types, you can give us a safe (clean burning) robo-car any day of the week. Except Sunday, that's drivin' day.

went out to Miami saturday night to shoot start a series of shoots for a new online aggressive skating e-magazine Balance. These are the extra photos that will not be featured in the scene report write up and should give you a nice sneak peak of the images that will be found in the write up coming out in the next month.

Construction Office Coordinator Michelle Ihnot is cute as a bug, all the guys want her number. Michelle only works in the movie business to support her Dave Matthews habit. When there are no movies in town she sells lawn chairs, novelty candles, leftover cheese and sometimes models for cabbage patch kids. Her favorite baby names are Samantha Jean and Piggy. She plans on naming her firstborn 'Farfegnugen' or 'Whistlestop'.

Farfegnugen!

It was at that moment that Lord Puffinhopple realized that it might have been a mistake to give that Frankenstein fellow a second chance after he had switched to plastic surgery promising to both give up the whole “resurrection” business and to give him a more youthful appearance.

 

This revelation came to him on meeting Lady Farfegnugen, a woman whom rumor had it the doctor was smitten with.

It was early 1988. My '87 VW Golf was practically brand new, well within the warranty. I was on my way to Poughkipsee NY to provide technical support for one of our outside salesmen, who visiting all his accounts that week. We would visit the largest sewage treatment plant on the east coast, and a couple of trash-to-energy plants among other sites. Accelerating out of the tolls from the Mass Turnpike onto Route 84, one of the heater hoses in the Golf burst. Now this wasn't the first hose I had burst, so I new the situation was time-sensitive but I did have a couple of miles left. As I boiled off my last drops of coolant, I saw this garage just off the highway, and I made it there. They weren't busy, and the two guys working there improvised and installed a new hose for me out of some hose they had around, while making farfegnugen jokes. I don't remember how much it was, but they charged me so little I never bothered recover the cost from the VW warranty. I was delayed maybe an hour getting to Poughkipsee.

 

Lately I've been traveling Route 84 fairly often, and I noticed the garage is empty. It hasn't fallen into much disrepair yet, so I assume it is a casualty of the recent and ongoing Great Recession. On my last trip down, I walked past the No Trespassing signs to take a few shots for nostagia.
