It's less derpy looking from this angle It's less derpy looking from this angle

I’ve always liked the proportions of the original Mercedes CLS but also have always thought the bottom of the front bumper on non-AMG models is a little too high off the ground relative to the styling of the sides and rear of the car. Doesn’t seem so bad to me here though.

At what point in the depreciation cycle does an Audi transition from dated to modern classic?

Oh hey nothing to see here, just another Ferrari with Montana plates parked in 2 reserved spaces in the garage at my office in Virginia Oh hey nothing to see here, just another Ferrari with Montana plates parked in 2 reserved spaces in the garage at my office in Virginia

This time it’s a 458 Spider instead of an F12 the last time. And yes, in the background there’s the same blue Range Rover Sport SVR that’s usually parked across 2 reserved spaces.

Prime Day unlocked phone deals I might jump on if Prime Day wasn't completely broken Prime Day unlocked phone deals I might jump on if Prime Day wasn't completely broken

Prime Day has officially broken Amazon. Too bad, I guess I won’t be buying an Essential PH-1 for $250 or a Prime Exclusive—i.e. loaded with Amazon bloatware—LG V35 for $600.

I’ve been on the cheap prepaid phone plan bandwagon for the past few years. Unfortunately, my move from a small/medium city to a much larger one, and my new job in a particularly congested area, have me bumping into the wireless carriers’ latest trick to get you to spend more money with them: data deprioritization.

This is a very good business portrait of a business person This is a very good business portrait of a business person

Working in recruiting, I spend a lot of time on Linkedin. Yes it is useful for stuff blah blah blah. But sometimes you scroll through the business-y memes and entrepreneurial inspirational quotes and see a man with a Dr. Benton C. Quest beard smiling at you.

FERRARI. More than you can afford, pal. With Montana plates. (These are in fact the same two parking spaces I’ve seen two different colored Range Rover Sport SVRs—you can see the white one in the background below—parked across 2 spaces.)

Necessary July 4th car shopping with my mom Necessary July 4th car shopping with my mom

My mom has been talking for a while about wanting to get a new car to replace her 2005 Acura MDX that she bought new. She has been talking about it more since my dad bought his new Volvo XC60. But today, on this day of many sales, she’s out probably buying a new car. She’s not usually this decisive.

The Range Rover Sport SVR has magical parking superpowers The Range Rover Sport SVR has magical parking superpowers

When I posted a while back about a blue Range Rover Sport SVR in my office parking garage, I didn’t realize it was parked in two reserved spaces. Turns out, it’s not even the only Range Rover Sport SVR at my office that parks in two reserved spaces.

I think I might like the red lips on these wheels but I'm not certain I think I might like the red lips on these wheels but I'm not certain

I saw this 997 last night. It was lowered on what looked to be nice 2-piece wheels with machined lips that had red something (maybe tape?) added to them. I’m conflicted.

Angry Jeep is angry Angry Jeep is angry

Modified Wranglers are (un?)surprisingly popular in my particular corner of the DC burbs. This one was parked at my gym last night. So many lights that will most likely never brighten so much as a dirt path.

It shouldn't be this difficult for me to find affordable, reliable cellular service, but it is It shouldn't be this difficult for me to find affordable, reliable cellular service, but it is

Earlier this month, I switched from T-Mobile to Boom! Mobile, a Verizon MVNO, because T-Mobile coverage around my office was crap. Unfortunately, Boom! Mobile isn’t quite working out for me either. Verizon is running a double data deal on prepaid plans, so I’m hopping on the merry-go-round to them now!

This is what happens when you give local politicians facebook video ads  This is what happens when you give local politicians facebook video ads 

As the Maryland primary elections approach, I’ve been getting a bunch of local political ads. A lot of the democratic primary elections are the real contests for offices (NEENER NEENER GOP’ERS). At first it was the more well-funded operations putting videos on facebook, but now, there’s this. It’s kinda awesome?

This big ole extra brake light caught my attention in traffic tonight while making a quick jaunt to the uhhh....mall.....this evening.

My office is in one of two towers that share a garage. There’s an overpriced cafe in the other tower. I always regret paying their prices, but this area is undesirable for going out for a quick work lunch.

Knowing one's limitations, in decal form Knowing one's limitations, in decal form

This bro’d out purple Wrangler (with squinty angry grille and LED halo lights I unfortunately didn’t capture in this picture) crossed my path last night. There are HIGHWAY STAR decals on the hood.

This Saab 900 turbo convertible with diplomat plates was taking advantage of the nice temperature this morning.

Turns out the Motorola Z3 Play is unlocked and compatible with all carriers Turns out the Motorola Z3 Play is unlocked and compatible with all carriers

One of Motorola’s strengths is making cheap phones with nice clean software that will work on every US carrier. Unfortunately their high end Z series phones haven’t followed this trend, until now.

I saw a 2019 Acura RDX on my drive home tonight. It was white. It was not an A-Spec like this pic with the blacked out trim and angrier bumper face. It had a paper temp tag and I didn’t bother trying to get a pic.
