Carnage
Car was 20 hours old, driver got rear-ended by a kid with no insurance...and no driver's license...-Octane5GO, 5thgen.org

We tried tracking down the source of the story, but came up empty-handed. Talk about a rather unfortunate event! However, the consensus seems to be that the new Camaro handled the impact rather well. Could this have been the first casualty?

Rooster Call, by Sean Haggai
Well, I did it. I made the jump. No, I didn't run off and get married, as much as Henry D. was hoping for that with dreams of hounding me forever. I did, however, move into a new place amid a struggling economy and a not-so-great housing market. I saw an opportunity up for grabs, and I went for it. I was in need of a change for the better.

When they say it's all about location, location, location, they really mean it. Sherman Oaks is the place to be. Not only am I a bit closer to the ocean air of the Pacific, but I've shaved 20 miles off my commute and about an hour off my drive time, and I have fewer fill-ups. If you are familiar with the 405 Freeway, otherwise known as a parking lot here in L.A., then you'll know what I'm talking about-sorry, Henry.

I think it's a bit cooler here also. Must be the ocean breeze? Not only do I have a bank in walking distance, but I also have a theater, two supermarkets, a mall, and even a Best Buy electronics store, not to mention great Ventura Boulevard eateries.

Aside from the elephants who dwell directly above me and who migrate from one side of their place to the other by jumping instead of walking, and the unrelenting intermittent squeak from the building's air conditioning system, all is well. I even discovered that another tenant who is above me is a famous hip-hop artist. Although I have yet to talk to him aside from a "man-wave," I did some research and his name is Smooth B. You might not be too familiar with late '80s, early '90s hip-hop, but he comes from the group Nice & Smooth. They had four gold records during that time. It actually feels kind of cool to know I've got a hip-hop icon as my neighbor. Their most notable song was "Sometimes I Rhyme Slow, Sometimes I Rhyme Quick." The funny part is I've heard the song a billion times on the radio but never knew who it really was.

As of yet, I don't regret the move. The area is great, and the new place is quiet. Plus, with two high-def LCD TVs pumping 1080p resolution and a nice summer breeze, I am really enjoying the decision to finally sit and relax. [Ed. note-It's only a matter of time, buddy.
