The Rage is Back!

For anyone like me who loved Rage Against the Machine, and was sad to see them part ways, it's good to know that Zach De La Rocha is back and killin it again with his new group One Day As A Lion. I'm not to up on recent events in music, but I heard this for the first time today and I was fucking sold... Too Sick:

One Day as a Lion -- Wild International

Canon 580exII Goodness

Finally got my flash yesterday, I decided to use for a little light painting in the driveway with the IS and my friend's WRX... These were my first attempt at this, and this is only one flash, I can't wait to pick up two more.

Still Dreaming....

I've been spending some time over the last couple days doing some research on how to spend large amounts of money that I don't have in order to get some more power. I've left my motor bone stock from day one, with the plan of just slapping a turbo kit on it once I could afford it, and calling it a day. For some reason though, I can't seem to be happy with throwing a turbo on the stock motor, even though I can easily make more than the 300whp that I'm looking for.

The simplest and most obvious swap would be the 2JZ-GTE out of the supra, but realistically it is just not as cheap or easy as it would seem, and it seems to be overkill for the amount of power I'd like to make:

No matter how much I try, I always keep coming back to this:

Ahhh the Beams 3S-GE... 2.0 liter, 4 cylinder, revs to 9k, and easily boostable to 300whp on stock internals.

And then there are people like this that make me wonder if I should do something outlandish:

And I wonder..................................

In the spirit of the post title:

Nas ft. Kanye West -- Still Dreaming

Nothing puts the mind at ease like a dope beat

I've had these songs running through my head for days, they definitely bring me back. Chill ass beats and a laid back flow, who could ask for more.... Some of you may know the songs, but def. give them a listen if you don't.

Outkast -- Benz or Beamer

Morcheeba ft. Talib Kweli -- Let Me See

The Rice Bucket

My IS has come along way from when I bought it stock just under a year ago, but it still has a long way to go.... 

This is how it sits now:

Puttin' in work.......... Thanks to Keith at KaizoPhoto, T2, Bruce, and Brendan for the shots:

And a test fit of the new wheels, thanks to Bruce for the hookup on these bad boys:

So it begins...............

So I got coneed into making one of these blog things a while back, and I never did anything with it. Figured it was about time to get started...

Hopefully I'll be able to keep the posts coming with new shots, updates on the cars, and some other cool shit.

Here's a sample of some recent pictures to get things started:

Also, I just picked up a canon 580ex2 strobe, so I'll be sure to post up once it gets some use.
