  1. I want in the trade section to see what is up for offer! I hate being a new guy!

  2. I have gone back to IRC to chat after some 15 years if not more! Glad to see it has not changed all that much other than lots more servers. Just thought I would ask if anyone knew of any IRC channels that are cool and worth checking out!

    [quote] Indeed Rick is really the only original member left these days, although I think he should prolly get out while he can and go join Vinnie!!!! And its not like the quality has gone down over at Vforce, same frame supplier, same engines, hell they even use Nub graffix(which have been phased out of OCC now since they have crappy in house paint) [/quote] Sounds like old school OCC OCC is cool, but I think the egos got way too big and gave up on being a custom bike builder and became a corporation.

    [quote] My first choice for a bike purchase from a OCC person would be from V force customs now which is owned and operated by Vinnie and Cody, nice bikes if you havent seen them. [/quote] I have been wanting to check them out. From what I hear, that is the place for the stuff that used to be known at OCC. I think it was more Vinnie than Jr to be honest. I think the combo of Vinnie and the computer wiz Jason Pool would shut everyone else down. Jr is no hack by any means, but I was starting to think he was getting a bit repetitive. The sure thing is that OCC only has Rick as for strong long term talent right now.

    [quote name='Arcane' date='09 January 2010 - 10:48 PM' timestamp='1263095325' post='444257'] i used to watch that but haven't in a long time...so, i'm not sure what you're talking about....care to fill us in the backstory? unless things have drastically changed, the attitudes between sr and jr are normal...they yell at each other, say each other suck, etc....but, its just the way their relationship is... [/quote] A quick highlight of what is going on: Jr got pissed at Sr and walked off the job, with TV cameras following. For a few months the TV followed a bike build along with Mikey and Jr not working at the shop. Mikey went into rehab and has just came back around in the past few weeks. Jr, in the mean time, started a "design" company where he takes products and "designs" them. The only work he has done so far is Colman gave him a portable grill and he just slapped diamond plate on it and chromed the knobs, far from redesigning in my opinion. He has some clothing shop that his girlfriend sells chick crap, but I guess that is now out the window, but not too clear on if it is still around or not. This past week Jr. showed up at the shop with an army of lawyers and accountants to go over every scrap of paper and rat turd they could find, clearly just to piss off Sr.

    American Chopper

    I watched American Chopper for the first time in a year or so last night. Why is that ass hole Paul Jr. still on the show riding his old mans coat tails if he is so pissed off at him? The old man should buy his ungreatful ass out and send him on down the road to redesign grills and help his girl friend sell pantys. Must be he has some kind of contract to be on the TV show or some shit. Paul Jr. Designs: let me bolt some diamond plate and chrome out some parts on your design and call it all mine and original!
  7. [b]Las Vegas, Nevada (CNN)[/b] -- The debate over distracted drivers ramped up a notch on Thursday as Ford Motor Co. announced technology to let computers read their Twitter feeds to them while behind the wheel. [url="http://www.cnn.com/2010/TECH/01/07/ford.twitter/index.html?eref=rss_topstories&utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+rss%2Fcnn_topstories+%28RSS%3A+Top+Stories%29"]Read full story HERE[/url] So now I can be on the go and still get news that no one would ever give two shits about read to me. What is this world coming to? Better get set up with all the hookah twitter feeds! Am I the only one that just feels wrong about this?

    Anyone Into Home Brewing?

    Hello, I am new here and my eyes light up when I saw this thread! I am a wine maker and have been known to do some distilling from time to time. I have made a few beers and enjoy it very much. Don't knock Mr. Beer, it is very cheap and can produce a good beer (if not a good distillate base) for under $15. Hell, the two gallon fermentation tank is worth that price to a guy just starting out with limited space to work with. BYO magazine and Home Wine Maker are both excellent and highly recommended publications that anyone into the craft should check out. (not a paid endorcement )

    Amadeo'S Flaming Shisha

    1333 E. Michigan Ave. Saline, MI 48176 734-944-3151 If you are in the Ann Arbor area, get your rear end to Saline and check out this place. It has killer food and the guy who owns the place will treat you very well. If you know Saline at all, the bar is to the East of the Ford factory on US12 (Michigan Ave). (I date myself still calling it Ford's I guess it is Visteon now) In the plaza with Country Market, Blockbuster, the sushi bar (funny how many people think two sushi places are next door to each other with shisha and sushi on signs) and Ruby Tuesday out by Michigan Ave Open from 3PM to Midnight every day of the week, hookahs are $6 to $9 depending on the time of day and special he has going. (trust me, it is much cheaper than any other place I have seen around here) Ask about two for one deals or other specials, don't be shy! Lunch / dinner will run you about $8 with drink and you get a good amount of quality, fresh food.
