Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner- The Original Bond Watch

sub and scotch.jpgEven though I have written a lot about Rolex, I have been putting this post off for a long while. Writing about the Submariner can be a bit of a cliché, being that nearly everyone has written something about it. Now, it isn’t that it’s worth writing about, but I want to avoid adding to the noise and write something worthy of a great watch. So being the swell blogger I am, it is my duty -when I finally broach the subject- to do it justice. Continue reading

Suits

Suits-season-2I must admit, I watch a fair amount of television. I have a few favorite shows, Such as Mad Men, Game of Thrones, and How I Met Your Mother. The series is ending for that last one, and I was looking for something to fill that void, a friend suggested I check out Suits. She said that I would like it, and it encompasses many things swell. She was right!

I was familiar with the show before, but I hadn’t seen it, so like a good entertainment junkie, I consumed the first two seasons in a matter of a week, on to the third the last week, just in time to catch up to season 4 returning on March 6th. Continue reading

For $33.4 million, you can (almost) be Bond, James Bond | Hemmings Daily

As a globe-trotting superspy, James Bond not only had a girl in every port, but a car and maybe a boat or aircraft in every exotic locale too. That makes for quite the collection, and one such assemblage of vehicles associated with Ian Fleming’s best-known character recently came up for grabs, with a few strings attached: The buyer must take delivery of all 59 items as a single lot, the non-negotiable price is 20 million British pounds ($33.4 million), and a license to kill is not included.

Justin Timberlake: The 20/20 Experience and 2 of 2

I published this originally in april, but I thought I would do some updates and deliver it again, especially after hearing the follow up album called 2 of 2. Here it is again, Justin Timberlake’s 20/20 albums:

So I have Been Listening to Justin Timberlake’s New Album fo a couple of weeks and I have to say I love it! Now, Admittedly I am a big fan of his and I was pretty sure that I was going to enjoy it any way, but I was still pretty impressed. His timing of the release is perfect to make this album a great summer sound track. It is consistent for his style of music, and it has a great vintage quality to it. For this album of his it seems more adult, or “grown up” for lack of a better phrase. I have made the daring comparison before, but Timberlake’s music always strikes me as the new millenium’s Michael Jackson. And with that comparison JT should be flattered.

The Great Gatsby

GatsbyI had a busy and fun weekend with a friend of mine this past weekend (I wrote this May 20th). Over the weekend I; saw the Premier of Star Trek: Into Darkness (it was Amazing), test drove some exotic sports cars, and went to see The Great Gatsby in 3D. I may share some car pics with you, and I would love to tell you all about Star Trek, but that would include spoilers. So, what I am going to do is give my accolades to the Great Gatsby. Continue reading

Wet Nellie-James Bond’s Lotus submarine

roger_mooreJames bond has all the gadgets doesn’t he? As well as all the guns, and the girls, but it’s his cars that are the absolute best! Who wouldn’t want to own a Bond car? I sure would! Well then, how about one that turns into a submarine?!

Here is your chance! A very famous car from a rather small scene in The Spy Who Loved Me will be going up for auction in September of this year. Roger Moore‘s Lotus Esprit submarine car from the 1977 James Bond film “The Spy Who Loved Me” may be one of the lesser sought after of the big screen street machines, but it is certainly one of the most iconic, and looks no less cool when parked in your garage. As Bond cars go, it’s no Aston Martin DB5, but it’s still one of the most easily recognizable from the franchise. Seven were used to make the Lotus appear to transforming into a sub, only one was a fully submersible and err… functional.
