Odds and Ends…

Hmm…pretty sure I’m going to toss up another update today but that’ll have to come later in the day. I am happy to announce that I will actually have some coverage coming up for you guys though, because I am attending this weekend’s Formula D season-opener in Long Beach. Many of you that come on here aren’t into drifting and seeing from the Formula D Tech Day coverage, the fans of drifting that come on here are jackass kids, haha. Just kidding, only the ones that made stupid comments… I am a fan of drifting and have been trying to go to this event that last two years and have utterly failed. Two years ago I tried to go and by the time I got down to Long Beach, the event was nearly over and I was too dumb to figure out where to park, so I literally turned around and went home. Last year I wanted to go, but something came up during that weekend and so I was unable to attend. This year, all the stars have aligned and I will now be going to Formula D. I tried to secure a media pass but I lagged on it and Formula D closed-off all media pass distribution to Source Interlink.

I looked on the Formula D site and tried to see how much it cost to just pay for a ticket and go, and fuck man, it is not cheap. If you buy the tickets through presale online, it comes out to like $37 dollars. $37 dollars is really not that big of a deal considering people will pay almost $50 to go to an HIN show, but got damn, I haven’t paid that much to go to any automotive event in awhile. You can even show your car at the Slammed Society (show) portion of the event for like $45 bucks. Why wouldn’t people just pay the extra 8 dollars and park inside? I’m pretty sure it’ll be more than that by the time you pick up your presale ticket and pay for parking down in Long Beach. In any case, I somehow ended up with a spot inside the show so I will now be bringing my crap box Q45 to the event. There was a couple of more things I wanted to do to the car before I brought it out to a show but it works out, since I needed a spot to put my camera bag down when I didn’t want to shoot photos. Now my car will be inside and I can use it as storage, haha. I mean, I’m going to wash the car and try to make it look pretty but shit, don’t expect much when you walk by it. There will be plenty of amazing cars there I’m sure so don’t worry….

In other news…

I am currently working on all the orders that have been processed through the storefront from the past couple of weeks. There was a large batch of orders shipped out during the middle of last week but if you haven’t received your items yet, it will most likely go out tomorrow morning. I’ve been busy working for the majority of the past two weeks and just haven’t been able to get around to completing the orders. I know how important it is to you guys so don’t worry, you will definitely get your stuff ASAP. I wouldn’t try to scam you guys out of your money so don’t go getting crazy on me and reporting me to Paypal and shit. If I was trying to get your money I’d pose as some Nigerian Prince that had some offer you couldn’t refuse and would have you send me money so that I would deposit more into your accounts…

Before I go, I’d also like to mention that I have finally hopped onto the Instagram bandwagon. All the cool kids are doing it so I jumped on when the people over at Instagram ported it over to the Android system. I don’t give a shit about that whole debut with iPhones vs Android so don’t bother trying to use that as a conversational piece, but I am happy that I am on Instagram now because I can bring you guys some cool shit from The Chronicles. That means I can post updated photos on Instagram live at events as well as other cool car shit from my day to day dealings with Hondas and other makes. It’ll be cool because I can also do posts whenever I am at a shoot or something or at some industry stuff that you may otherwise have no access to…

It’s still in its infant stages but it would be cool if you guys jumped on now and started following The Chronicles/Stickydiljoe on Instagram. I know many of you aren’t into the social media thing like Facebook but for whatever reason have an Instagram account. I’ll try to keep it updated constantly with cool shit so follow me…

I’m easy to find. Just go to the search bar and type in “stickydiljoe” or #stickydiljoe or #thechronicles. I should come up right away. I appreciate it and I would love it if you guys would throw the whole hashtag thing at the end of Honda-related stuff or stuff you see on the site so you could potentially help expand stickydiljoe.com

You guys are great, go eat some pancakes and take an amazing shower or some shit. Have a good day…see you guys at Formula D Long Beach or catch me on your favorite social media outlet….self-promotional jargon over…

Oh and if you want to complain about how the Droid phones’ cameras suck and how my photos are coming out like garbage, guess what…my photos always come out like garbage regardless of phone or camera…clicky-pow!
