He was praying to the car gods.

Let's face it. Everyone has guilty pleasures. Mine? Bad movies among other things. Vin Diesel movies to be more exact. I love The Fast and the Furious (2001). Wow, I feel better letting that out because I've held it inside for years. WTF mate?! I can hear you all right now saying to yourself this guy must be on crack. Let me tell you why. Basically, it's a carbon copy of another one of my favorite movies of all time; Point Break starring Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze. Except it revolves around cars instead of surfing. If you haven't seen either films here is my advise.

Rent it. Watch it. Put it in a locked cabinet for a year. Take it out. Watch it again. It will change your life.

Despite two weak ass sequels (yes, they made sequels) I still watched them and was disappointed. Now, some genius is almost finished making a fourth movie in the franchise titled "Fast and Furious" Not to original I know, but the best part is that it reunites the original cast from the first film. Vin, Paul Walker etc etc. The first trailer was just released a few days ago and it comes out next summer. I am on the record right now telling the entire WWW that I will be in line for the midnight opening show drinking a can of NOS energy drink when it debuts. NOS!

You almost had me? You never had me - you never had your car...

Rachel and I decided to get a new car on Saturday. We hit 12 months with our Jetta and even though it's been great but we wanted to upgrade. We went back to the same dealership in Spokane Valley and traded it in for a 2008 Dodge Avenger. We love everything about it. It feels like a cross between the Batmobile and Kit from Knight Rider.
