The guys at Motorcycle House are offering a holiday giveaway promo for a nice leather motorcycle jacket. I have a couple of their leather jackets, and they’re pretty nice. If you’d like a nice leather jacket, go over to DaleFranks.Com and take a look.
Several months ago, I wrote about my fascination with alternative alphabets, the history of English-language reform, and an alternative alphabet named Quickscript, which I revised a bit. I’ve revised it a bit more, come up with what I think is a more logical version, and created a TrueType font for it. You can read about it here.
I had enough material to produce another video from the Orange County International Auto Show, so I did.
So, I went to the Orange County Auto Show yesterday, and I made a video of it, which is mainly me saying my usual horrible things about various cars. I’ve also monetized it, so I’ll need you to click on those ads as if you life depended on it.
Which it does.
So, here’s the deal. While I love doing car reviews—and I fancy that people enjoy reading them—doing them is a bit of a burden. It’s a burden either financially, because I have to rent the car for a few days, or in time and effort as I have to acquire them by…other means.
What I really need is regular access to a press fleet, and I haven’t been successful in being able to do that. So, I’m wondering, do any of you, dear readers, have any ability to help me get into the press fleet pool, or otherwise get access to review vehicles? If so, contact me at dale-at-dalefranks.com.
Or, said another way, I don’t feel so chipper today.
Hopefully tomorrow, I’ll be hitting on all cylinders.
Until then, back to bed.
My favorite bassist of all time. He passed away this weekend from leukemia.
I last saw him about a year ago at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. He was terrific as always. I wish I had shot some pictures.
The pic above is one I took at another concert in Nashville, sometime in the late 1970s.
