I am In Repair

"I'm not together, but I'm getting there."

I am 26, and just moved up to Berkeley, California (from LA and Central Cal previously). I love music, television, dogs, basketball, tennis, and too many other things to list.

John Mayer and Sara Bareilles are my two favorite artists, Love Actually is my favorite movie, and Top Gear is my favorite tv show.

Jeremy: Oh look! Richard’s number plate in an anagram of ‘LIAR,’ which today is very appropriate. Oh, and May’s in an anagram of ‘GOSH,’ which fits as well! …Lot of anagrams going on here.

Man goes on 18-month road trip. It lasts 23-years.


When the Berlin wall fell in 1989, former airline executive Gunther Holtorf and his wife Christine left Germany in their Mercedes G Wagen, bound for an 18-month tour of Africa.
500,000 miles later, and 74-year-old Gunther is still going. He has no sponsorship and no factory backing - his trip’s been entirely self-funded, without so much of a sniff of Facebook or Twitter.
Gunther told BBC news: “The main cost for the traveler is restaurants and hotels”. Which is why he kitted out “Otto” the G-Wagen with cooking and sleeping facilities, choosing to spend his money on fuel and shipping the car around the world. Literally.
Included in his epic roster of destinations are Brazil, Paris, Mount Everest, Cuba, Northern Iraq (during the war, naturally), Hollywood, Kazakhstan, Alberquque, the Caribbean, lots of Africa…
And despite covering half a million miles, his trusty G has never had a serious breakdown. Ever.

Now click here, watch the video and enjoy Gunther’s incredible pictures, which were captured with two old film cameras.

R.I.P. Carroll Shelby.
We’ve just received the sad news that today - 11 May 2012 - Carroll Shelby has passed away at the age of 89 after being hospitalized for pneumonia.
He was the mastermind behind the AC Cobra, the Dodge Viper (with Bob Lutz), and influential in the development of the Ford GT40.
In tribute to one of the undisputed kings of American muscle cars, here is our story from Top Gear magazine published only one month ago, dedicated to a true automotive legend.


Without Mr. Shelby, the GT350 and GT500, 2 of the greatest cars of all time, would have never been born.
Pour out some 40w oil in his honor.
