So Cal hot rod gal Faith Granger is putting her heart and soul into making a no budget independent film based on “fast hotrods, cool cats, gravity defying swing danging and rockin’ retro music.” Take a look at her progress so far…
Ok, so the lead guy “Johnny” has a look that makes me want to punch him in the face, but hey– maybe it’s because im bald, ugly and jealous or something. The hot rods and scenery, and story look great.
I’m stoked for Faith. Keep an eye on her progress via her blog. Hell, if you feel inspired, go to her website and donate some cash, a car to use, maybe some rockabilly constumes…
Summertime, and the living still is working out pretty easy. Here’s some of my stops along the way during the past two weeks, that demonstrate some success in my goal of avoiding work stress.
STOP #1- I’m a Neck’r. A Red Neck’r that is….:
We’ll start this adventure red neck style. Me and some of the boys went out to Watsonville the other night to watch some stock cars, midgets, dwarfs and inbreeds. Since we didn’t bring any cars to race, i’d say we qualified top in our heat in the drunk inbred category. Good times.
Concession Confessions: Piss Blue Ribbon, Pretzels and hot dogs, oh my!
I’m not sure about the spots in the photos. I think the crappy camera I’ve had to use the past couple weeks must have been drinking too…
STOP #2- GOLD CHAINS:
After Watsonville, Anissa and I grabbed the stolen credit card and headed up to Big Sur so that we could go to a gold chainer resort that lets you pretend you’re environmentally friendly and zen like…. while at the same time you can wear your gold chain, practice acting like your better than everyone and the staff will kiss your ass while doing so!
I used Mr. Kabakians Amex to buy a $90 hippie hemp shirt at the gift shop there, as they wouldn’t let me into dinner at the restaurant with my LA Derby Dolls t-shirt. Damn expensive huh? Well, think of it this way– i know that weed is going for way more than $90 buck an ounce– and this hemp shirt surely weighed much more. I heard it’s made of the Indica Super Kush. No matter the case, it’s expensive to be environmentally friendly and zen like here!
Nope, the zen massage did not come with a happy ending and, no, i didn’t have to bribe anyone to get this great table with the ocean view. I just did the right thing…. I lied, like Satan taught me in the 90′s, and told them it was our anniversary. We even got that nice desert with “Happy Anniversary” written on it! A gold chain may cover a red neck, but it’s still red underneath. We represented well, and left the hotel with plenty of spare towels, shampoo, lotion, q-tips and free snacks.
NEXT STOP… #3- SOUL PURITY:
Ok, for years i rolled with the upside down cross Bad Religion sticker on my tool box. Hell, I even had a couple old Coop devils posted on the walls back in the day, and may have even read a little Anton Levey to relax. Shhhhh…. Satan was soooooo 1990′s.
Nowadays, I’ve put Satan aside and have been reading the big black books– starting with the Bible. I’ve even caught myself quoting Genesis chapter something, and on the way home from Big Sur we stopped by the Mission in Carmel….
Look how enlightened i look below, wearing my Church wrench crucifix jacket at this 200 year old mission…. I think Jesus is really loving my black ass lately, as I’ve been happy learning about him.
NEXT STOP…. #4- HANDS DIRTY:
Wrenched on the wagon a lot the past days, hustling it back together so that i could take it to the Calaveras Car Club party this weekend– which was held at the Ramada Inn, Mission de Oro, in Santa Nella. Things were going well, until i found out i bought the wrong air bag fitting long after the stores closed to get the right one. No wagon for me.
Drove out Anissa’s ’40 Ford pickup instead. We had a good time hanging out with friends. All the cars parked in the center courtyard area, hung out at the pool a lot, and i don’t even think the hotel got destroyed by drunken hooligans or anything…
More fun stuff coming up…… next weekend is Hot Rod Camping trip, and couple weeks after that is Bonneville. Also found the Kelsey Hayes i was hunting for the future ’30 Roadster project.
