**Crack a beer before you start and make sure you have at least one more in the fridge because this one is long**
DC Comics has been having a bad week. Yesterday, two members of the Batwoman editorial team quit after their publishers refused to allow Batwoman (who is a lesbian character) to marry her partner. And now the comic company has provoked even more outrage by hosting a contest in which they readers to draw Harley…
Google engineers will tell you that one day robot-controlled cars will be able to drive better and safer than humans. One year ago, in a stunt for Hot Wheels, driver Greg Tracy proved just how far off those robots really are.
I was always crazy-jealous of the girl down the block who had a Barbie Power Wheels Jeep. Here I was pedaling away on a tricycle like some kiddie commoner, and she could tear it up in her powered piece of plastic perfection.
Who is that child? Where did it come from? Won't somebody pull up its pants?
There is absolutely no better way to spend your Thursday than watching this cat, who for some reason is completely ok wearing this shark costume (what the hell kind of cat are you, cat?), riding around on a Roomba chasing this adorable, unassuming duckling.
This guy right here...
From the company that brought you the Porsche 911 GT3 RS that kept me sane during a snow storm comes a new line of Team Hot Wheels vehicles, mini-figs and play sets created in partnership with Mattel.
Everyone on the Internet has an opinion — especially Jalopnik commenters. That's why when the new Ford Fusion aroused such an overwhelming commenting lovegasm it got me thinking.
At the Fiat Triple-X Stunt event last year in Prague, this Fiat Punto was supposed to clear a 20 meter (65.6ft) gap jump. The little car made it, but climbing the ramp on the other side was less than successful.
I blue myself this morning: Arrested Development will be officially back on Netflix next month. All 15 episodes will be available at once on May 26. That's the same day as the Indy 500, which, as far as I know, doesn't include a stair car.
For today's club sandwich, I channeled my inner Elvis. Ya know, if Elvis were a modern-day hipster and felt strongly about healthy(ish) organic ingredients purchased from the Bowery Whole Foods.
It's no mystery that I'm a huge fan of Bonobo, having shared the full vinyl stream of the Black Sands album recently. He's just released his new album, The North Borders, and on a quick listen - it's a great one.
The Jaguar F-Type is the first two seater sports car from Jaguar since the E-Type, a car which is an absolute legend and famously quoted as the "most beautiful car ever made" by Enzo Ferrari.
So, as you guys remember from your AMA with Larry Webster back in November, he had big things in store for Road & Track. You know, what with the complete overhaul of the magazine and all. Anyway, we're all excited because it's time to start revealing the fruits of that labor. Here's a quick note from Larry.
Tuesday jams to get yourself moving. This one always reminds me of summer. And summer can't come soon enough.
Remember the Mazda Design Challenge? 2007 seems like ages ago, but this week's launch of The Fusion Project got me thinking back to the crazy few weeks leading up to that LA Auto Show, my full-sized clay car (now rotting away in the basement of the Mazda R&D Center), and how mind-blowing it was that one person could…
Bonobo - Black Sands (full album, vinyl)
Today's jam is another one from Macklemore, who I just can't get enough of lately. Red Hot Chili Peppers + Macklemore + strings = audio gold.
