OK_Go_Here_It_Goes_AgainHave picked a favorite for this weeks musical throwback Thursday.  It is Here It Goes Again by OK Go.  This is an awesome song.  It is most famous for the music video.  Back when YouTube is still new it was a huge hit.  It has them dancing on four treadmills.  Over the years they have got more elaborate with their music videos.  Think this is one that started it all (I think).  The song is off their 2005 album called Oh No.  You can give it a watch/listen > here or below.

My favorite thing to check out at the Cape Breton Bike Rally (2017) is the motorcycle stunt show.  The past few years never took any pictures because my newest camera is too big for my pocket.  So this year dug out my old Sony Net Sharing Cam.  Sure, it doesn’t take the best pictures but it easy to use can carry.  Below are some of the better ones.  As for the rally itself.  It was really good.  All more vendors and people around.

  

  

  

  

  

  

 

DiRT 4

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , on August 5, 2017 by getbent57

Have put some time into DiRT 4.  Am enjoying the game a lot.  There is a lot going on in this game.  The menu screens make it look like a simple racing game.  Once you dig deeper there is lots to unlock and manage.  Course you win money to buy cars and upgrade them.  However there is more to than that.  You have a whole crew to manage.  They look after your cars.  So they get a cut of your winnings.  Then there is the PR person.  Which gets a cut as well.  They help you find better sponsors.  If you do well in a race meeting the criteria they set you win a bit of extra money.   Over time you can add more people to your team.  Each one can be upgrade or changed out if you are not happy with them.  All so the more you play you can unlock more sponsors you can add to the cars.  Then there is the facilities.  Each one does something different and is upgradeable.  Another thing is, you can own a car or a team can lend you one.  The trade off is you the lent one they take just about half your winnings.  But you don’t have to buy a car for that race type.  So there is a trade off.
