PROLOGUE When I was in second grade, my classmates and I “wrote” books about ourselves. I use the term loosely because really we just filled out forms for each page. One of my pages was, “I want to go to Asia because I have never been there .” That way of thinking is at the […]
Most of my friends will tell you I never stop talking about California. It’s due to many reasons, among them the weather, the views, and the overall good vibes I get from being there.
After being surrounded by people and buildings for a week in London, it was nice change of pace when we arrived in Newcastle, England. Newcastle is a pretty big city itself, but we were going out to Greenhaugh which was literally in the middle of nowhere. It was awesome.
New York; most people love New York, the sights & sounds, the people. It’s one of those cities that to some people never gets old. I’ve been there once, and if everything goes according to plan, it’ll stay that way. There’s another city to me that is the best. And that is London. I’ve been there seven […]
Another year of Life Blasting is over and what a trip it has been. From rally, to NASCAR, to drifting and sports cars. Unfortunately I couldn’t travel too far this year, but luckily the amount of events around the Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin area are some of the best in the country. For almost my […]
It’s amazing what word of mouth can do. While my dad and I were at our regular first Saturday of the month car show in Ypsilanti, we happened to start talking with a woman who said there also was a Ton Up show going on in town today. So of course, we knew we had to go check that […]
There’s a lot of car shows and races around the world. Many of them are attended by hundreds of thousands of people, but there’s only one Woodward Dream Cruise.
Known for one of the biggest automotive events in the Bay Area, the Blox team pulled out all the stops for this year’s event. They ramped up the event campaign by putting up a few billboards around the Bay Area and releasing a neat little teaser trailer. This show draws bigger crowds every year and […]
Portland is a pretty unique place. You’ve no doubt heard of the Keep Portland Weird sign or the Bacon Maple bar at Voodoo Doughnuts. Maybe you’ve heard about the abundance of bicyclists and vegans too. As far as big cities go, Portland feels very insulated from the rest of the world. I don’t mean that […]
Cities and towns all over the world have car shows, it’s the norm. People love to show off their pride and joys to anyone who enjoys cars. One show that is known around the world as one of the best weekly get togethers there is Cars and Coffee in Irvine, California.
In the recent past, I took a trip to Portland, Oregon, to visit my good buddy Joe Ayala. Another friend alerted me to the fact that there would be an awesome custom motorcycle show called the One Show happening there during my stay, so Joe and I checked it out!
Ah, the North American International Auto Show. The event that marks the beginning of my automotive year. All the lights, new cars, and being able to sit and run through the gears in just about any car you want is enough to make any auto enthusiast giddy. Let’s take a look and what was going […]

The sheer impact of Yosemite’s artistry attracts tourists worldwide with an average of 4 million visitors a year, and on any given weekend the park’s 1,169 square miles of forest are flooded with […]
Before an image has been seen or a paragraph read, let it be known that each and every sentence, word, and syllable has been drawn from the deep, dark, and mysterious mind of a spawn of teh intarwebz. The mind of Kyle Pope. This is not a story or an article as much […]
It’s another month, which means another rally. Here we are now in Newry, Maine for the New England Forest Rally. Antoine L’Estage was looking for his fourth consecutive win at this Rally, David Higgins was looking to extend his lead this season, and Ken Block was out to do whatever it took to make that […]
Last month I was over in New York so I wanted to take that opportunity to add some more states to my states-I’ve-been-to list. According to Google Maps, I would be able to do a loop through all six New England states and be back in NYC in time for dinner. I recruited my friend […]
