…It’s Website Wednesday: Exotic cars get wrecked?

Wrecked Exotics is “the Internet’s largest collection of exotic car crash photos”, and also a great way turn any hiccup in your day into a “well, I guess it’s not that bad”. Sure, it must be nice to afford a car with a six figure price tag, but I’d be willing to bet the day that owner put it through a steel pole was probably not a good day. All told, over a quarter of a billion dollars in automotive carnage has been documented. If you’ve ever dreamed about driving one, chances are someone has crashed one, and someone else got it on film.

…2007 is the year of Didn’t You Hear?

2007 DYH

A new year means new features, and Didn’t You Hear is going to be adding some in the coming weeks. The first to be announced is daily content. DYH will continue to cover everything that is so hot right now, but will also be adding the following:

    Movie Monday
    A new movie, movie review, or movie preview will debut each Monday.

    Tuner Tuesday
    A new car, car tuner, or car review will debut each Tuesday.

    Website Wednesday
    A new website will debut each Wednesday.

    Things Thursday
    A new gadget, gift, or gizmo will debut each Thursday.

    TGI Friday
    Anything goes, but it will definitely be unique. Maybe a contest, maybe a giveaway, maybe just a joke to finish off the week, but definitely something interesting.

So make sure to check back daily for new stuff, because 2007 is going to be the year of Didn’t You Hear.

…Storm Launcher is the coolest new toy?

Storm Launcher

Here’s my prediction for the hottest new toy this holiday season: Storm Launcher by Spin Master Toys. I know, I know, TMX Tickle Me Elmos are already going on eBay for hundreds of dollars, but we’ve played that game years ago, and try as they might, the Tickle Me Elmo stampedes are a thing of the past in my book. The Storm Launcher is like every possible remote controlled vehicle rolled into one. It’s a car, it’s a boat, and a plane, all at the same time. Though it lacks wheels, a hull, or any discernable wings, it can cross any surface, including: grass, sand, concrete, water, air, and space (probably not space). If only Ford could make real vehicles that do all that, they’d be out of their financial quicksand. Don’t want to crash your brand new toy and burst it into flames on your first day of learning how to control the thing? Perfect, slide it into beginner mode and away you go. Itching to do some tricks and impress the neighbors? That’s what expert mode is for. Sounds pretty cool huh? I thought so too. Pick up a few and hit the eBay express, this thing’s gonna be hot.

…Your ride wants to get pierced?

Pierce Your Ride Scion

This is one customization trend that I hope never catches on. Pierce Your Ride offers, you guessed it, “piercings for your car, truck, motorcycle, boat, snowboard, ATV, and more”. I’m all for customizing your ride and all, but giving it a giant piercing? Definitely not my style. Supposedly, theses allow you to “rebel against conformity”, but I think anyone using one is just rebelling against taste. Be your own judge though, I may be wrong on this one (though I’m probably not), and these may be the next best thing since sliced bread (though they probably won’t).
