  1. I got a little too excited too quickly. Mike Halker pointed out that you gents probably meant that Steve has recreated the Euro-spec octagonal mirrors rather than the Federal spec Raydyots, correct? I was hoping for Raydyots.
  2. Excellent. Looking forward to seeing you Friday, Kyle.
  3. I'd watch it. At Bibs' place.
  4. Thanks, but nope...this is: http://www.thelotusforums.com/forums/topic/46402-lets-see-your-axes/?p=430812 Although lots of great people, both in TLF and Lotus HQ, were kind enough to help make the Burnt Orange guitar happen. Only one nut, and it's bone. And to Mark B's point, I'd be happy to write something for TLF News about my various Lotus guitars if you like.
  5. See you there, Kyle. Looking forward to seeing you again, and Chet's looking forward to seeing Colin again. I've barely dug in to reading the show program and I already appreciate all the work you've put in to it. This'll be be a special experience.
  6. Roundel less painful than a tattoo. Great story behind this axe, including luthier John Bolin speaking with Lotus as to the specs and process to match Burnt Orange, but full-story and more photos for another time...hopefully with MP3 for the brave-of-ears!
  7. Rather putting the cart before the horse, eh?
  8. http://www.gizmag.com/tesla-400-mile-range-roadster/35368/?utm_source=Gizmag+Subscribers&utm_campaign=0f52d87e06-UA-2235360-4&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_65b67362bd-0f52d87e06-91708037
  9. Neil deGrasse Tyson Selects the Eight Books Every Intelligent Person on the Planet Should Read Definitely not the list I would have thought he'd recommend.
  10. http://www.mechanicadvisor.com/ Seems a slight step-up from Automatic, which I use with my BMW (didn't support my Evora S), but Connection Key is still in pre-order status.
  11. If you're in North America, send Tony K a PM. He's got a pulse on this better than anyone.
  12. Bibs, I ride a Rivendell, which are old-school lugged steel-frame bikes. The founder, Grant Peterson, is a really interesting guy—kind of the anti-Lycra crusader—shellaced cork handlebar tape, bar-end shifters, etc.—and publishes a quirky but interesting and useful newsletter called the Rivendell Reader, some issues of which you can download for free: http://www.rivbike.com/product-p/rr.htmand http://www.rivbike.com/product-p/rrcd.htm They also carry a topically wide-range of books, including some great ones on bicycles that might be of interest: http://www.rivbike.com/Books-s/45.htm They also have an interesting (at least I think it is) blog at http://rivbike.tumblr.com/ - Matt
  13. I've only been in a 308 twice, but it felt like this saddle (oddly, photo taken on the same street as the one above...and disturbing that the boot says "TINGLEY GIANT"):
  14. Alrighty then! Well, having known a few ex-addicts (ex as in dead and ex as in quit), I guess that's realistic. And sad.
  15. BTW, I disagree with the film (I haven't read the book) because the worst toilet in Scotland is in Portree. I feared for my life. For what it's worth: http://www.wired.com/2014/12/best-science-books-read-2014 http://www.brainpickings.org/2014/12/22/best-books-2014/ Forgot, also reading the original Ripping Yarns by Michael Palin and Terry Jones. Crossing the Andes by Frog...a classic essay.
  16. "A little irritating"? That's very precious considering: you apparently can't tolerate anything contrary to your attitude; I laid out a coherent and backed-up argument against something that you (not I) brought up, for which you haven't offered up any meaningful response (feel free to PM me if you don't want it here...or just block me); you don't seem to get that threads on TLF range far and wide, and go on tangents (and in this case a tangent based on something you brought up), which rarely deter any of us from getting back to the primary subject, i.e., there are often related secondary and tertiary subjects); I did not in any way insult you; and then you resort to cheap name-calling and even lamer sarcasm. So yes, if it'll help with any anger management issues that might be in play, just ask Bibs, Kimbers, MJK, or whoever you feel you need to in order to confirm you're correct that I'm a trolling, YouTube spamming (I guess that means there are several hundred of us here on TLF), posturing/ego boosting groupie. "However it does irk me to say the least, when someone gets on a pedestal to preach when no one offered a pedestal, let alone the off-shot topic that you're being defensive about." Right. Then I guess you're easily irked because what you call a pedestal most would call a coherent argument...and your snit gives you the right to make snide and borderline insulting comments about my friends?

  17. Bibs, Found this on the street in Manhattan the other day. If you can patch up this Lotus (OK, the other Lotus) bicycle then I'd say you'll have earned your stripes. Matt
  18. Bibs, Amazing site! Thanks for the link. Matt
  19. Kalli, You're not being a killjoy, but it's unreasonable to expect that if you start a new thread in a discussion forum with the first sentence being a reference to Spotify that someone like me who's also a paying member and arguably closer to the musician-side of it than you might reply to that specifically in a way you might disagree with. And as I noted, this topic is pretty much covered at http://www.thelotusforums.com/forums/topic/46332-the-driving-music-thread/-- and regarding that thread, after reading this, my last post there will be the last time I post a link to music on YouTube because: "The threat of a [$1B] lawsuit against YouTube comes amid a broader debate about the rights of musicians in a freewheeling era of digital access to songs. In December, Consequence of Sound reported that [Pharrell] Williams’ megahit, ‘Happy,’ generated just $2,700 for 43 million plays on Pandora." Nice. Sorry, but when I have friends who are world-renowned musicians not being properly compensated and struggling to pay their bills and keep their families' afloat, I take issue with consumers who regard music as an essentially free commodity. Also, your statement that musicians can "make their own choice whether they use spotify or not for their distribution" is not correct if they're on a label who has decided to release through Spotify. The only way they can control that is if they control the entire process, i.e., they function as their own label. Again, I reference the video I posted above...Pink Floyd, The Black Keys, etc. - Matt
  20. You mean Elises or Exiges only? There are of course these Esprits for starters: http://youtu.be/_p272EvG_U8?t=25s http://youtu.be/jGwokPpDy3A?t=27s And some Evoras: http://youtu.be/RfD19ZjQBcM?t=37s
  21. True, but it's really only a third the reading it appears to be because it's in Italian, French, and English.
  22. A little light reading (?!) I picked up at Lime Rock and have vowed to crack open in 2015:
