Ferrari-Driving French Techno Zombies Are The Right Way To Start The Day

How to explain the video above? There's no point in making a techno-electronica album in the spirit of Giorgio Moroder without some sort of insane concept. Enter Kavinksy's 1986, an album kinda sorta about a guy who was bumped off in some sort of crash that involves some kind of crime. He dies unceremoniously but is… » 4/21/08 10:00am 4/21/08 10:00am

What, No Air Conditioning? 1956 Testa Rossa For Sale

After Loverman quite possibly cursed his 512TR with bad PCH juju apparently inherited from the Spirit of Dietrich, CHP Officer Derek Midollo (or Derick Midolo, depending which LA network affiliate you affilitate yourself with) has been identified as the owner and driver of the Ferrari that dirt-napped itself into… » 5/25/06 1:00pm 5/25/06 1:00pm

Testarossa Crash in SoCal: Two Dead, One Possibly CHP

Let us say right now that as opposed to other law enforcement agencies, the CHP has only ever busted us when we were actually doing something really wrong.
