  • Ford beats Toyota in quality rankings!!! Wow. That is seriously huge, HUGE news for Ford as they dethrone Toyota as leader of the pack in J.D. Power and Associates’ annual initial quality rankings; grabbing more individual awards than any other automaker for the first time since 1998, when it tied for the top spot. Ford earned segment awards for the Ford Mustang, Lincoln Mark LT, Lincoln MKZ, Mercury Milan and Mazda MX-5 Miata. Mazda is 33.4 percent owned by Ford. Porsche again dominated the overall ranking of brands, averaging 91 problems per 100 vehicles, as it had last year. That compared with a 2007 industry average of 125 problems per 100 vehicles. Last year it was 124. Toyota, which grabbed the top spot in 11 segments last year, captured only four this year — the 4Runner, Sequoia, Tacoma and Lexus RX350/RX400h. Ford’s Lincoln brand, which jumped from 12th to third in overall vehicle quality, averaged 100 problems per 100 vehicles. It was behind Porsche and Toyota’s Lexus luxury brand, which averaged 94 problems per 100 vehicles. Are you bored yet?

This summer, each donor will automatically be entered in a drawing to win $3,500 worth of gasoline - which is like a week's worth. The Red Cross will also award a $25 gas card to a randomly selected donor. Ok but what the F should I do with my "No Blood For Oil" t-shirt now?!

  • I first saw The Spree opening for Bowie a few years ago and I fell in love. They've got a new vid made by animating over 70,000 individual pictures taken over a 10 day period. Its cool but sort of reminds me of a Mac commercial. Hmmm. I'm missing their white robes, too. These black suits make them look like Slipknot sans the wacky masks. Polyphonic's new release is called The Fragile Army and comes out 19 June 2007 on TVT.

  • I slept 3 hours last night. Going to bed now. See ya!
