I first saw the white VW below one day parked on the street. I left a note on his window. Fast forward a few weeks and here we are. Photos by me.

Deaths, tsunamis feared as massive quake hits Japan

Tokyo (CNN) — The most powerful earthquake to hit Japan in at least 100 years unleashed walls of water that swept across rice fields, engulfing towns, dragging houses onto highways and tossing cars and boats like toys.

Local media reported at least 32 deaths, with more casualties feared. And the 8.9-magnitude quake, which struck at 2:46 p.m., prompted the U.S. National Weather Service to issue a tsunami warning for at least 20 countries.

The quake’s epicenter was 373 kilometers (231 miles) away from Tokyo, the United States Geological Survey said.

But residents there continued to feel aftershocks hours after the quake. More than 30 aftershocks followed, with the strongest measuring at 7.1.

“I wasn’t scared when it started … but it just kept going and going,” said Michelle Gates, who lives in central Tokyo.

“I won’t lie, it was quite scary. But we are all OK. We live on the third floor, so most everything shook and shifted.”

RIP Zita Egitto

Original from: Slappy Asylum

This poor woman was killed by a 17 year old driving reckless in PA, but this article says it was from “drifting”. Please read the full article HERE. The real drift community would like to send our thoughts & prayers out to Zita’s friends & family. Below is the conversation between the writer of that uneducated piece & i…

Thomas : About the story you wrote, um sir/ ma’am, you have no clue what you’re talking about. Not even a little bit. That teen should be charged with vehicular homicide by reason of reckless driving, not “drifting”. The car he was driving was Front Wheel Drive, you cannot drift a front wheel drive car (successfully), only rear wheel drive. Drifting did not come from the Fast & Furious movies you douche bag. Dont write about what you dont know.

But, i do feel saddened that the woman lost her life because of a reckless teenager. Are there any race tracks near where this happened? If there was, i doubt he would of been doing stupid shit on the street. My condolences to the woman’s family. I hope that teen rots in prison.

Bonnie : Hi, Thomas, The teen was charged with vehicular homicide. In order to really drift, you need a limited slip differential. The kid’s car didn’t have one of them.

As far as where the drifting came from, who cares? It is here and this one kid killed a woman. That’s really the only thing that counts. I would guess that the kid will be in the juvie lockup for years.

Thomas : Yea, but the Term “drifting” should not of even been used in that article because it makes us real drifters that go to the track every month & follow the law on the public roads LOOK BAD! The public is going to hate us because of that purely written article!

Bonnie : Well, my only advice is to tell the District Attorney about your feelings. She issued the press release. What word do you believe is correct?

Thomas : Reckless Driving! Jesus, do i have to spell it out? I dont want to be mean but we are not like those ignorant teens that do that kind of thing on the street, but the public isn’t going to know the difference between us & them. All they are going to see are modified import cars & think we’re all old lady killers.

Bonnie : I doubt it. I see modified import cars, and don’t assume that at all.

Thomas : You might not, but lets be realistic, the general pubic is full of idiots. Like i said, this isn’t a personal attack on you, it just hurts our whole scene. It doesn’t look good for all the people that work their asses off to get legit & legal drift events at local tracks. That story just scares me because all it takes it a few rich uppity ups to make a public speech & get drift events shut down across the country.

Bonnie : Well, drifting is fine with professional drivers on racetracks. It’s just these teens who take it out on the roads that are the problem. You certainly can make that point.

Thomas : Doesn’t have to be done by professions even, there is a HUGE grassroots community that go to track events month by month & follow all the rules on the road. I know that article is going to start a problem, i just want to be the one who says “i told you so”.

Maybe the REAL drift community could come together & donate to the woman’s family & prove to the confused public that we are not the horrible people that they’ve read about in that article.

You should set up some sort of donation website.

*Waiting on reply.

Update : I contacted the District Attorney.

Boonie : Okay, Thomas, good luck to you and your fellow driving enthusiasts.

I guess she see’s that a donation website wouldn’t be in order to make up for all her journalistic mistakes. Hopefully the Egitto family understands.

Shatsu

Bueno creo que todavía no hacen envíos al extranjero, pero si la gente insiste seguro que pronto podemos conseguir algunas camisetas. Desde luego en cuanto pueda intentare conseguir una porque son de lo mejor que me puedo para regalar para mi cumpleaños. Shatsu

El diseño es fantástico y entre mis favoritas sin duda destacan estas:

Por cierto esa esta agotada evidentemente. Una camiseta con un TE71 old school no podía durar mucho en stock.

El proyecto llamado Shatsu viene de la mano de los chicos de 86ers. Por cierto, no te asustes el blog es un grupo de la República Checa. Tienen traductor al Ingles en la izquierda que funciona bastante bien. Os recomiendo que visitéis la pagina a menudo.

London’s life

Last weekend I was in the London biggest shopping centre, Westfield. I was in a Disney store and what I found…

I took some pictures of Westfield as well.
