Dubai police hoverbike

INCREDIBLE VIDEO from Dubai! We installed a couple of World records! Hoverbike in all its glory – light and compact. Passed successful tests in extreme conditions – dust and heat. This is a special version of the hoverbike for the Dubai police. The uniform of the pilot is also provided by the police.

The Russians may have helped.

Someone could lose a leg in the bike’s current configuration.

CGI demo reel

Collection of some of the fx work done in the past three years.

CGI is not collected nor stored on a reel. We just can’t seem to get away from the old school film camera jargon.

Rideable power trowel

As the concrete begins the curing process, the finishing crew uses the Ride-on Power Trowel Machines with twin rotor blade assemblies to finish the slab to the required specifications.

This is clever and can save a bunch of time.

A Russian car’s Russian Easter Egg

Via Goog Translate:

1) Turning the ignition on
2) Start a car
3) Three times the right turn signal
4) Two times distant
5) Five times on the clutch
6) raise the speed to 2000
and at that moment we light the arrow to the left

Now it remains to introduce a new penalty for playing Tetris at the wheel of the car

Follow along.

The Fastest Olympic Sport Ever

It’s actually not that fast. Certainly not as fast as hockey. And it’s not an Olympic sport. And it’s not ever. Maybe in the near future, but I doubt it.

Slinks

Halloween is a tad over two weeks away. Then November brings Thanksgiving with Christmas not too far behind. Hell, the weather is still kinda nice yet. How can we possibly think of the stressful times so far in the future?¬† Grab your credit card and book a flight to Arizona now. Rent a condo for the next three months. Enjoy yourself down south while everyone up north shits themselves shoveling snow, shopping for gifts, battling snowstorms and salt on the Interstates and shivering in bed in the middle of the night. Or just be prepared for the inevitable like we’ve done so many years before. Tolerate it. Just as you tolerate the Slinks below.

Frankly speaking

Saturday’s weather was absolute shit all day. It rained with off and on pouring cats and dogs and the saber rattling of thunder off in the distance. It always rains cats and dogs.Now, at the time of this writing at 10 p.m. CDT, we’re under a tornado watch. I thought tornadoes don’t work in the dark. No, wait. Tornadoes still work but they rotate in the opposite direction.

What if it rained tits and ass? I’d be outside during the downpour enjoying every minute of it. But raining tits and ass would be much quieter and softer than raining cats and dogs. The noise on the roof would be a subdued “boop” as each soft, pink globe made contact. Too many large areolas would clog the downspouts. I can dream, can’t I?

While at the homebrew club meeting last night, I was informed that the guy with the white Chevy Silverado still has it for sale and it’s still parked in his front yard. I really seriously gave it some thought. My son, Dave, even offered to perform a full presale inspection at his shop. “Ask the guy if you could have a mechanic check it out for about an hour. I’ll getcha in an out in a flash.”

I thought about it. The Chevy had no carpeting, no power windows. The creature comforts were lacking. Originally, the seller was asking $7000 for the 2005 truck with 116k miles. And my truck had frame cancer but still ran like a champ. And the driver’s seat had my assprint permanently embedded. I decided to stick with the Tundra and ride it out until the frame buckles with me in it. Or my kids take my driver’s license away because I got too goddam old and can’t drive worth shit any more. It could happen.

Speaking of it could happen, the Cubs are in the running again, having advanced to the penultimate series of games before the world series. However, the Dodgers seem like formidable foes and the Cubbies might be facing an uphill battle.

All the Weekly Babes from all the years are available once again. All that remains of relevance from the old NextGen Gallery are a ton of past Honeys and car galleries. But for me, the pressure’s off. I hope you enjoy it. Lotta nice girls, heh. – ZZTop – LaGrange.

Once again, thanks for stopping by. Yep, still love doin’ it. Doin’ what, ya say? This website shit. I still love it.

Photoshop Phonies

The fakes, phonies, and deceptive images return for this Friday. After all this time, it still remains quite difficult to discern the phonies from the fakes and the ridiculous from the sublime. See what you can do.

Hit it.

Quickies

I think we ran Quickies everyday this week. Here we are again running more Quickies. There just might be enough to get through today and the weekend. But that’s okay. We’ll just get more.

Smart plays in the NFL

These plays demonstrated moments when the players used their brains instead of their muscles to outwit their opponents.
