The New 911 Carrera Models

The New 911 Carrera Models


I’m guessing the covered model is either the new Turbo or GT3.

The new 911 Carrera models have been announced and can be viewed on the Porsche website. Porsche did mention that it had a redesign in mind, and that they were working on several features that they had wanted to integrate into the 2004 models but couldn’t due to time conflict or something…

As you can see, the headlights, taillights, front and back bumpers, as well as the front fog lights have been redesigned. Some slightly, but other drastically.

Some of the new features include Roll-over protection, Bluetooth Interface, Voice Control System, Touchscreen, Dynamic Cornering Lights, TV Tuner and the very hot Launch Control. :p
Although it might not seem like much, the interior was redesigned as well. The screen, the buttons on the console , and the gearbox. Another fun little feature is the Universal Audio Interface which allows connectivity with many media devices/ music players. All in all, the redesign seems to have touched on many hot new notes. Although I’m not crazy about the taillights, I do believe that Porsche are on the right track by going for a more classic look, and return to their roots.

Shades and Shadows – Part Two

28 06 2008
Shades and Shadows – Part Two

Marc
36 year old
Single father of three

Ralph’s Supermarket – Parking Lot
San Luis Valley, Colorado
3:13 pm

I tried to help her, but she wouldn’t stop bleeding. There was blood everywhere. She kept jumping, scratching, and clawing at our car. I didn’t know what to do. Darrian, my 18 year old daughter, was sitting next to me in the passenger seat. The terrified look on her face made my heart sink deep into my stomach. Johnathan and Marie were sitting in the back seat. Marie, my 4 year old, was screaming. She didn’t understand what was happening, and the bizarre thing is, neither did I.

Johnathan was 16. He seemed to have bottled up the fear, as he hugged Marie and tried to calm her down. But you can still see it in his eyes; the sense of fear and dread had clearly taken over.

I held the steering wheel as tight as I could, and thought to myself… “How can I get my kids out of here?” And then it clicked. I knew what I had to do. This crazed woman was putting my kids in danger. She needed to be stopped; in any way possible. I told my children to cover their ears and keep their eyes closed. I reach over to the glove compartment and open the secret latch which housed my 9mm.

I never thought the day would where I had to even use it, but it did. I waited until the women was on the left side of the car, so I’d have time to get out, do what I had to do, and get back in.

I opened the door, aimed at her head, and pulled the trigger. I must have shot at her three or four times. The woman collapsed on the ground. She was shaking for what seemed like hours, and then she was suddenly still. I stared at her pale face for a while, trying to piece together what had just happened. But I couldn’t risk my kids getting hurt, so I left her there. She was a stranger after all. I didn’t know what else to do.

I sped of into the street and up the highway. I couldn’t risk going back home. People where dead. They were everywhere. All over the pasture, in the yards, hundreds of lifeless corpses decorated the streets like an apocalyptic nightmare.

It’s been 13 days, but I can still hear the screaming and the banging; I can still smell the blood. What had happened that day still and might always remain a mystery.





R.I.P iPhone – Delish – No Knobs?

27 06 2008

@ Home:

I dropped my 8GB iPhone in water.. and um.. it sorta died. I quickly dried it off and watched the screen slowly flicker then turn white. After that, it kept rebooting, over and over again. And finally, it died. After drying it off with a hair dryer, and keeping it, face down, in a container of rice, it started working. But, the screen’s not lit and not responsive. It’s depressing. I’ve had it since November. I loved it. I want it back.

Anyway.. the new 3G iPhone is coming out soon [July 11th].. but I’m not sure how people are gonna get their hands on one. Sure the features are amazing, and the price is really low, but you can’t get one unless you sign a 2 or 3-year contract with AT&T. Hmmm.. I just hope someone finds a way. FAST.


R.I.P dear iPhone – You’ve been a great friend. 😦

@ The Terrace Grill:

Went to the Terrace Grill today with the family and had a great time. I shared a plate of Escargot with one of my sisters, and it was delicious. For the main course, I had the Surf and Turn dish, which is a combination of Fillet Mignon and Lobster Tail. Well, the Fillet was amazing, but the Lobster wasn’t that good. I’m guessing it’s because it’s not Canadian [out of season] but Australian. And for desert [drum roll please] I had the Chocolate Tart with chocolate creamy filling and vanilla ice cream. It was delicious, but not as good as it was before.

@ The Avenues:

Went to the Avenues with one of my sisters to get her a new phone and iPod. Just before the not so fruitful experience with X-Cite [Alghanim Electoronics], we found a parking at level A4. So we’re walking to the entrance right? when we got there, I reach out for the doorknob and was surprised to find this…


… ummm.. has the world run out of doorknobs? or is this a new trend?

Anyways, it was a good day el7imdillah.

Take care & stay safe all,

Shades and Shadows – Part One

26 06 2008
A catastrophe, is one way of describing it. People just kept dropping like flies one day. Everyone just collapsed dead on the ground. And now, two strangers in San Luis Valley, Colorado are forced into a climatic battle over the fate of their family.
~Part One~

Marlena Ford woke to the screams of her five year old daughter, and rushed to her side. Rebecca had been having night terrors for the past couple of weeks, and Marlena had no idea what was triggering them. She had taken her to the doctors several times before, but without avail.

Rebecca would describe horrible creatures that come to her at night clawing at her legs, arms, and face. The signs of these supposed “attacks” did leave visible marks on Rebecca’s body. The doctors dismissed them as being self-inflected injuries, and that they were common with night terrors. Some doctors would perscribe mild tranquelizers, but Marlena didn’t like the fact of medicating her daughter.

“Mommy, they’re back!” cried Rebecca,

“It’s alright honey, I’m here. No one can hurt you now.” replied Marlena,

“No mommy, they’re outside. The monsters are outside.”

“There are no monsters outside honey. It’s only a dream.”

“But mommy, you’re not listening. Look outside.”

Marlene was puzzled at how calm and collected her daughter was that night. It was as if she was sure she saw something. She decided to check outside Rebecca’s bedroom window, just to reassure her that there was nothing to fear. And just as she reached the window, she saw them. They were scatted all around the yards and streets. Hundreds and hundreds of dark figures laying still on the ground. The sheer shock of the scene sent Marlene darting to the front door.

“Stay in bed honey. I’ll be right back.” said Marlene,

As she reached the door he hesitated a bit. She kept telling herself that she must be seeing things, but the truth of the matter is that she wasn’t. She opened the door and there they were. They were everywhere. Marlene walked out into the yard with her hand covering he mouth, as the figures began to come into focus. Branded like cattle, the “monsters” Rebecca was talking about to were people. People with bloodshot eyes, pale skin, and white hair. There was Amanda, her 72 year old neighbor, Marcus, her daughters schoolmate, and
Jeanine, Marlene’s best friend since high-school. What had happened to them is a mystery that, Marlene decided, she doesn’t want to uncover.

She ran upstairs, grabbed a few clothes from her and her daughters cupboard and tossed them in an old bag. She carried her daughter and headed to her 1992 Jeep Cherokee. She started the engine and just sat there for a while, trying to process what was happening. There was no warning, nothing on the news, the radio’s dead, her phone didn’t work. What was happening to her was the stuff nightmares are made of. She kept telling her daughter to cover her eyes. She put the car into gear, clasped her hand on the steering wheel, pushed her foot down on the accelerator, and dove off into the night.


As she drove off into the distance, two words echoed in her mind. Two words that would give her hope for a better future. Two words that would keep her going. One of them is faith, and the other is love.

The Secret

Glasses:
I’ve got a secret, can you keep it?
Swear this one you’ll save!
You better better lock it in your pocket,
taking this one to the grave.
If I show you, then I know you won’t tell what I said.
Because two can keep a secret if one of them is dead.

Emadori:
I can keep that little secret. I promise you that.
Tell me, let me smile. Tell me, let me soar.

Glasses:
This is the secret ——-
————————————
————————————————–
————————————
———————-

The Others:
Why do you smile like you’ve been told a secret?
And now you’re telling lies, because you just want to keep it.
But no one keeps a secret; no one keeps a secret.

Why when we do our darkest deeds do we tell?
They burn in our brains, and become a living hell.
Because everybody tells; everybody tells.

Emadori:
Not everybody tells.
It’s our secret, I’m gonna keep it. I swear, to the grave.
You can burn me. Light the fire, let the smoke fly and soar high.

I swear I’ll never tell.
it’s our secret..
I swear I’ll never tell.
I’m gonna keep it..
I swear I’ll never tell.
To the grave..
I swear I’ll never tell.

Glasses:
Look into my eyes, I know if you’ll tell.
Better keep it under wraps, or we’ll both end up dead.
Remember, you swore you’d never tell. You swore you’d never tell.

Emadori:
I swear I’ll never tell.
I swear I’ll never tell.
It’s been locked up, in my pocket.
I’m taking this one to the grave.
I swear on my life.
