The Uber-Official, Highly Accredited, Almost Entirely Accurate Motorhead Mama Stoned Driver’s Test

Ever since pot started wafting it's way out of High Times and into the mainstream, plenty of people are panicked.  From the chilly highways of Colorado to the swampy streets of Florida, marijuana is enjoying all kinds of loosened restrictions and this has got law enforcement freaked out. And with good reason for with alcohol, you've got a breathalyzer.  But with pot, what have you got?  Nothing but...

Freak of The Week: Beachside Van Man

  What the hell is that, you ask?   I have no idea.  But I know I'm lovin' it, mainly because it represents everything that's missing here on the Westside of LA.  It's thrifty, it's wacky and it doesn't give two spark plugs about what you think. First of all, he's got the homemade bull bars complete with lights and spirals. Like they say down on the farm– nothing keeps the cattle...

Mainly because I've had so much fun Prius bashing.  It's been such an easy target: a soulless, soundless, hatchback with about as much sex appeal as a naked Rob Ford selfie.  It's been...

Only In LA: Transplant Nation

Here's the thing about the City of Angels… none of us are from here.  Most of us arrived in LA with car full of belongings, pasty white from what we vowed to be our last ever hideous winter Back East, looking for a Melrose Place-like situation– a rent controlled apartment complex filled with gorgeous, friendly neighbors just looking for a nearby dweller to screw. Little did we...

Freak of the Week: Day Trippin’

I dunno about you, but I'm not big into hallucinogenics. Especially during the day. Please keep that in mind when I tell you about this blue Pathfinder I recently saw in West Hollywood: Nice, blue SUV right? Or is it? I got closer and realized, this ain't no simple blue truck: Or is it a purple truck? Or it is a green truck? Aaaaaaaarrrrggg! I immediately begin to freak...
