  • Beer Mug: Timber Beast

    Name: Timber Beast

    Brewery: Lazy Magnolia Brewing Company

    Location: Kiln, Mississippi

    Taste: Timber Beast is the first in Lazy Magnolia’s Back Porch series.  A spicy, full-bodied, rye pale ale balanced with a generous dose of Zythos hops, it’s a recipe inspired by the complex and beautiful flavors of Mississippi and a reflection of the strength and spirit of our very own Timber Beast.  Rye is a natural fit for the Imperial style.  The nutty sweetness of this hearty grain perfectly balances the generous hop bite and brings you back for another sip.

  • AJ's Car of the Day 1971 AMC Matador Machine 401

    Car: AMC Matador Machine 401

    Year: 1971

    What makes it special: For 1971, the "Rebel Machine" package was dropped from the options list, and was reassigned to the Matador model with the "Go-Machine" option. The Go-Machine option was unique in that it was a combination of specific performance options that could be ordered al a carte, meaning that buyers could order any larger model with these options. Also, unlike the 1970 Rebel Machine, the 1971 Matador Machine could come in any AMC factory color, ( not just a few ), and there was no exterior badging of any kind that was unique to the Go-Machine package.

Stewart Copeland’s of Police fame did the pounding  theme for the TV show. No word on his connection with the film.  Read More
  • Gear Up: Driving Curve

    Brought to you by Cannondale Generators and Generac

    NAME:  Driving Curve

    WHAT DOES IT DO:   This free app uses GPS to capture your speed and evaluates your performance based on how much it varies. And just like Nike+, it also gives you a score based on how you do, doles out achievements when you hit certain goals, and lets you share and compare results with both friends and other drivers from around the world. So, basically, the biggest difference is you don't have to stick a sensor into a hole in your tires for it to work.
