Rolls Royce x Ada Wong Orgasm

So the other day I went to go see Resident Evil in the theaters. Some have Star Trek, others Star Wars but my Holy Grail is Resident Evil so I couldn’t resist!

The movie kind of sucked compared to the others but there were two things that made the movie worth my time. Well three is you count Michelle Rodriguez. RAWR! For those of you who don’t know I was Michelle Rodriguez from Machete for Halloween last year. I should have pictures somewhere but it’s just me in my bra. Go figure right? Haha.

But anyways, besides Michelle Rodriguez (appearing multiple times), Ada Wong fuckin made that movie! God was she drop dead gorgeous! I know who I want to be for Halloween! Ugh…do I have time though? Or anything to do? Meh. Plus I look kind of strange with short hair.

I could NOT stop staring at her the WHOLE movie. She’s one sexy fox. This was also pretty surprising because they usually pick ugly ass Asian girls to star in movie roles like Lucy Liu or Brenda Song or even Devon Aoki. I KNOW there are much prettier girls than those three.

And if Ada Wong wasn’t hot enough. I got to see my baby on the Big Screen! If you watch the youtube clip I attached above you’ll see what it is. Not only is she driving a brand new Rolls Royce through the fake streets of Russia but this car is bad ass! It survives almost any damage imaginable! Like she would survive if she were in a Honda Civic or something. Psh. The movie would end right there.

It was well worth the $8.75 I paid to go see it.

And I’m so disappointed in my Broncos! I’m glad they were at least able to catch up from a 13-0 at the end of the 1st.

Hong Kong Part 3

I finally have a day off today so I thought, hey! What better time than to write a couple blog entries? (Or at least 1). And also the longer I wait to write these, it won’t be as fresh in my memory so let’s crank it out!

We went to one of the Hong Kong Historical Museums and I was surprised at how much stuff they could fit into a place. It was not only very informative but pretty interesting at the same time. If you ever want to know about the history of Hong Kong, THIS is the place to go. And for those of you who would be interested in going sometime it is called the Hong Kong Museum of History. Easy enough to remember right? I’ll post a couple stock photos so you can get an idea of the place.

Looks cool doesn’t it?

I got kind of nauseous so we left a little earlier than planned. To help the stomach pains we stopped at the Charlie Brown Cafe for a little drink!

I just got some Chamomile tea but Mark got Hot Chocolate and it was so adorable! (The first picture on top). I know they just dust cocoa on top but it was adorable none the less. For not really being a Snoopy fan, I thought it was pretty entertaining. It was pretty packed with people though so we didn’t stay too long. Just long enough so my stomach would let up just a little.

After that we ended up going to the Financial District because I found an Arcade online that I wanted to go play at. Namco’s Wonder Park Plus! I can’t really find any pictures online and I didn’t take any but we both won a few prizes so I was pretty happy. Yay for claw/UFO Machines! I can’t get enough of them!

The next day we went down to Central to have another look around and I found the most delicious sweets bakery! We didn’t have any sweets though but what we DID have was so much better than any baked good. We had soft serve yogurt on waffle cones that were then dipped/covered with chocolate. It was SO HEAVENLY! I swear I thought I had a picture of it but it’s not on my phone. I will find that shop picture somewhere!

Ah! But I DID take this picture from the same shop.

YUP! They’re ANIMAL MACARONS!!!!!!!!!! I didn’t have any though because it was sweltering outside and we both just wanted to cool down. I found that business card I too0k of theirs though. The place is called “Roll” for those of you who plan on making the trek to HK. I’ll link their website as well. www.roll.hk

Too bad the website is “Coming Soon”. Haha. Oh well.

As you can see they specialize in Roll Cakes which neither Mark and I have any interest in, so frozen yogurt it was! You should have seen me go at it (pathetically and unbelievably slowly). I had the great notion that since the yogurt was cased in, because of the chocolate shell, that I would have more time to eat it but unfortunately for me the sun was out and the laws of physics aren’t that forgiving so Mark ended up saving the day by helping me with my running avalanche of frozen yogurt. Now THAT could have been a disaster! I probably have a polaroid of the yogurt somewhere…Hmmm…..

And I DO! But I don’t know if Mark wants me posting it up here plus the fact that I’d have to stand on top of a wobbly computer chair to scan it is a little off putting. Oh well, maybe next time.

And before I round off this post I want to show everyone the gorgeous Rolls Royce I saw in HK.

I knew what it was the second I saw it. A 1970 Rolls Royce Phantom VI Mulliner Park Ward. Boy it was a BEAUTE!

The car was to die for! I’m so lucky I got some pictures of it while it was at a red light. Yes yes, there are lots of rich people in HK. I know! But I’m glad there are still people who appreciate classic cars. If it weren’t for those people a lot of classics would have been junked and used for scrap metal a LONG time ago. I just hope I can inspire the love of classic cars in future generations to come.

I promise another more HK posts will be coming soon!

Hyundai Genesis & Equus Marketing Tactics

So we all know about product placement and the techniques of branding that companies use, like well designed labeling and the weight of price over value, but what you don’t know is to what effects marketing tactics like these can have on an unsuspecting customer base.

What do I mean by this? For example Hyundai uses the same tactics to market their cars to not only the new younger generation but to those worried about the class status of their vehicle and what it in turn says about them. Like the design of a Hyundai but fear that you will be looked down upon for owning a cheap Korean car? Well look no further because for people who can’t tell the difference between a Mercedes Benz and a Hyundai without the hood ornament, all it takes is a new symbol.

The reason why I know it is working is because not only have people in LA been embracing the new design but because people who know me send me pictures of new Hyundai’s thinking it is a more expensive car that I might be interested in taking a look at. Yes, it’s happened. To the average Joe Shmoe the new Hyundai Genesis has the look of a brand new luxury sedan. The body shape of the Hyundai Genesis is basically the love child of the Toyota Camry and the Mercedes Benz S550 plus or minus an awkward looking grill

.

Hyundai Genesis

Toyota Camry

Mercedes Benz S550 (Brabus)

See the resemblance? But by taking off the Hyundai symbol that used to come on the older models it has boosted sales incredibly. When the Hyundai Genesis first went on sale August of 2008 sales were dismal but now but sales rose to over 21,000 vehicles in 2009 and they are expected to sell over 50,000 units every year from here on out. That’s a big jump from 6,000 units in 5 months.

But the marketing ploys don’t stop here. Toyota has the Lexus, Nissan has the Infinity so Hyundai wanted their own Premium Brand name as well so they created the Equus brand.

But instead of being original they have borrowed from many designs to make only an inferior copy of greatness. Basically they’ve made a rear wheel drive platform vehicle copy to try and sell to the mass population as a luxury sedan.

Unoriginal qualities

-The name itself is a Latin term meaning horse or steed. (Real Original).

-The hood ornament looks AWFULLY similar to the Rolls Royce flying woman emblem.

-Mercedes S Class body frame from the top/front & BMW 5/6 series frame from side and back.

-Double between Lincoln grill and the split grill BMW is known for.

-Mercedes Benz headlights / tail lights

Why would I pay over $60,000 for a mere shoddy replica of a nice car?

Heavy curb weight, horrible turning diameter, 15mpg…

It’s one thing to pay $34,000 on a car that looks expensive (Genesis) but it’s another thing to spend twice that on something that is basically the same but just has a V8 instead of a V6. Did I mention you get better gas mileage from the Genesis?

It’s hard to find anything that offsets the Equus from the Genesis. There is no WOW factor, even reviewers claim that this is the new Mercedes. Just because you copy the shape and look does not mean that the S class is replaceable. There is a reason the Mercedes Benz S Class keeps winning the Best Luxury Sedan of the year award.

For people who know nothing about cars and want to believe that the Hyudai Equus is better than the Mercedes Benz S Class, they can go right ahead into thinking so. Don’t fall for the branding marketing ploys of Hyundai.

Low Torque, Inferior Interior, no All wheel drive = THAT is what you’re getting from the Equus.

Coming from a family who owns multiple S Class Mercedes, never have they disappointed me in horsepower, interior design or driving capabilities.

Web of Connective Tissue

Since I didn’t finish my post this morning, thought I’d do that now.

I didn’t even go into depth about that Lamborghini Gallardo. It’s the Lambo that’s most likely to be seen because it is the most produced model. When someone says “mass-produced” you tend to think about 6 digits worth of cars but for the Gallardo over 10,000 were made within the first 7 years. That’s a lot for Lamborghini…hahaha. It’s like for every 1 millionth Toyota Corolla they make Lamborghini decides it’s about time to roll out a Gallardo. And this car is just another prime example of naming a car after what you want your car to be:

A fighting bull
And not just that, it’s a FAMOUS fighting bull. Damn straight. It wouldn’t be a Lamborghini without one!

And guess what else I saw yesterday? An old ass RHD Rolls Royce.

And he was young too! I’m so jealous!

And the Knicks signed JR Smith. *sigh* And I had such high hopes for the Lakers. They cut forward Renaldo Balkman to make room. Too bad for the Knicks he won’t be arriving on time for practice on Saturday so he won’t be able to start playing on Sunday but we should see him on the Knicks early next week. Yeah Carmelo might not play nice OR share the ball…so we’ll see what happens come next week.

OH SNAP! THE BOBCATS FINALLY WON A GAME! HOLY SHIT!

Timberwolves SUCK BALLS!!!!

You know what my favorite part of watching any game on ESPN is? Watching everyone rag on Lebron’s receding hairline. Especially Charles Barkley. Hahahaha. Everyone is priceless.

Oh and I didn’t even talk about that movie I went to watch yesterday. It was a really great movie. It IS a movie about a pedophile but it’s not really about the ACT of pedophilia but the everyday life of one man. The cinematography is AMAZING and the minimal use of words just makes it that much more suspenseful and thrilling. There are even brief moments of dark humor that just brings the whole movie together. The trailer for the movie says it all. This was the actual opening sequence of the movie. This movie in no way glorifies pedophilia or it’s actions. It’s just a well executed film and for those of you who are worried about anything really disgusting or frightening, this movie has none of that. Rotten Tomatoes gave it a 73% and they only gave Star Wars Episode 1 a 57% HAH! Take that! So if you’re really into foreign films and into something different from the everyday romance or comedy, this is it! Try expanding your mind! I AM NOT JUSTIFYING PEDOPHILIA, by the way. I wish there was a way to stop it but it just seems so hopeless.

And last but not least…

OHHHH SNAP! THE KNICKS FINALLY LOST!!!ANNNNND IT WAS TO THE FUCKIN HORNETS! 

BURN.

It’s about God damn time.

*EDIT*

A note on the Title for this entry. This guy came in today to have a meeting with one of the managers and when he was describing how social networking works in regards to RSVPing for events he described it as a “web of connective tissue”. What a retard. No wonder you reak of “I’m never going to get laid”. What a loser.
