Kickin’ It at Harris Hill – A Snippet

As you know, the other weekend Matt Powers came by Mineral Wells, TX to join in on all the drift fun at Lone Star Drift. Well, while he was in town, Aaron Losey worked with Harris Hill Raceway to see if we could get a play day going for him and a couple of LoneStarDrift’s top drivers.

I volunteered to help grab some video footage for a project that Aaron was working on and also happened to take a few snaps in between.

2015 Lonestar Drift – Round 2

Sometimes when I hear people talk about Hawaiii they say it’s a nice place to visit, but not a place they can see themselves living. You know, because all that nature, perfect weather, amazing food and gorgeous island girls gets hella old real fast, right? (At this point all my friends on Guam will roll their eyes at me in disbelief). No, I don’t subscribe to that opinion. For me, the place that I love to visit but would hate to live is Mineral Wells, Texas.

There isn’t much out there. It’s got some tumbleweeds, a lotta farms, maybe a Walmart and a Chilli’s. But you know what? If it wasn’t a 5 hour drive from Houston, it’d be my favorite Lone Star Drift stop. Despite all the unimpressive first impressions, it does have an airport! And the best part about this airport is that it has a nice spot set aside where car guys get to do things that skate the boundary of stupid and awesome. And no one is around to complain. (Looking at you, WALMART.) Mineral Wells = +1.

Rice Bowl x Anime Matsuri Weekend

It has been a real fun few weekends! I’m hella joyed to officially welcome Hai to our little team of Hipster nerds after CJ and I caught up with him at Anime Matsuri. He’ll be our dude out in Austin sharing whatever fun he gets into over there, and hopefully he’ll drop into to town to visit once in a while. Hai and I talked a little bit about StrangeRhythms and its audience, and I briefly outlined that our content direction is the desire to share things we love through photography. In a few words, passions over everything, photos before anything; have camera, will trespass. We’re just nerds that want to do media stuff! That in mind, our actual coverage is a strange ensemble of subjects. Some days we post fashion things, other days it’s motorsports and occasionally, it could be anime. You’d think these hobbies would all be mutually exclusive, but sometimes they come together as an orchestra and produce a beautiful symphony.

The Fast and The Furious 7 Houston Premiere

The effect of the Fast and The Furious series on my generation of car enthusiasts is undeniable. Looking back, the franchise itself gave a direction to car modification that some might consider dubious. One could argue that import car tuners have come full circle with the big wings and flashy livery, but the biggest impact on us have been by the buster. The mark that Paul Walker made in our hearts through his portrayal of Brian O’ Conner on the screen paired with his genuine love of cars off of it has cemented the Fast and The Furious series as a timeless classic of cultural importance, for better and worse.
