Diesel Brothers is the latest iteration of walking caricatures fed through a procedural reality-TV meat grinder. Think Fast N Loud with a little more Larry The Cable Guy. I’m ashamed to admit I enjoy watching it.
You knew Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson could act, and wrestle, and probably eat you. Now he’s adding TV producer to his resume to help create a show that’s basically “undercover cop with shady past drives sweet cars and solves crimes.” Sound familiar?
Everything from exotic super cars, to blue collar pickup trucks, to even the Goodyear blimp has gotten the Hot Wheels treatment. And now, after over a quarter century on TV, so has the nondescript pink sedan that the Simpson family drives all over Springfield.
With rumors that a new Ford Ranger and Bronco might be happening and the Oshkosh JLTV announced as the US military’s Humvee replacement, the last 24 hours have been pretty exciting in the truck world.

You may think it strange, but I enjoy listening to the type of soundtrack music you might find on a film like Get Carter, Bullitt or The Ipcress File. Much crime drama TV produced during the ’70s used these films as their model, and a huge number were produced all requiring incidental music. Amazingly, this music was…
Good news for endurance fans: we can finally watch the entire WEC season this year on television in the good ol' U-S-of-A and Canada. Not only will we get our usual 24 Hours of Le Mans coverage, but Fox Sports inked a deal to show the whole season. That's multiple hours of motorsport deliciousness at a time.
In this fraught American media landscape, who can be trusted? Brian Williams is a faker, and Bill O'Reilly is too. The credibility of our most cherished cultural lodestars is crumbling before our eyes, and the mighty haven't stopped falling. That's right: Xzibit is a fraud, and Pimp My Ride was insane bullshit.
One of the worst things about being the parent of a small child — I’m talking 2-5ish here — is the television. Green shit, sleepless nights, food spitting, all of those things are manageable, but the hours of inane TV they start to watch as they develop tiny, useless little brains? It’s the worst.
At some point, TV became complicated. It used to be this thing I would plop down in front of after school and mindlessly flip through. Then, in 2009, everything changed: analog signals were outlawed, and the new digital TV signals failed me in every way: my old television wasn't compatible, my house was too far from…

The days of KITT, the A-Team van, and Crockett's Ferrari are long gone. That's not right. TV hero cars need to make a comeback.
10th Voyage Studios is cooking up this wacky YouTube mockumentary "Zombie Cleanup;" starring the bumbling idiots of a mismanaged zombie-disposal company and their '99 Chevy Silverado with a utility bed and mounted machine guns.
The March 1931 issue of The Country Gentleman magazine included this advertisement for Timken bearings. With the bold headline "100 YEARS AHEAD" the ad promises that the farmer of the future may be unrecognizable — thanks to Timken bearings, of course. Our farmer of tomorrow wears a suit to work and sits at a desk…
Every now and then, something surfaces on the Internet that is so amazing, we stop and wonder how we lived our lives before we knew about it. Today is one of those days. Stop what you're doing because it's time to watch "Thunder on the Streets II."
