I can't even imagine how long this took to produce, but it is amazing. Imagine your favorite Christmas songs (if you have any) were dry raped by a Nintendo NES and you get 8 Bit Jesus.
Listen to a little sample here or just go ahead and download the whole damn album.
RANDOM THOUGHT: How great of a name for a temp agency would PERSONNEL JESUS be? Priceless.
It was an article in Fast Company on how Jon Bon Jovi (yes, that one) bought a lackluster arena football team and, against all odds, turned it around to be extremely profitable and entertaining. I read that the first thing he did was make sure all of the teams got nice uniforms for on and off the field, and how that was a first step towards unifying the team. By doing this small thing, they felt they were part of something, and as a result had more self respect for themselves and saw themselves as a team, rather than just people getting paid to do a job. Following me?
So back to the Time gallery. After seeing what a random sampling of UAW workers looked like, I decided to give Google Images a little project to see what their competitors in other countries as well as over here look like.
Here is Toyota's factory in Japan. Universal color scheme. Hardhats required. Some shit is going down and they are ready for it.
Here is a middle aged fraulein getting her shine on in a Mercedes Benz factory in Germany. Clean sweatshirt and white gloves.
Side note: LOOK AT THAT HARDWOOD FLOOR.
Here is the assembly line at BMW in Dingolfing, Germany. Company issued pants and tops, look how clean that floor is. Everyone is working to get it done.

I almost got in a wreck trying to confirm that I actually saw the name of this place right when I was driving down La Cienega in LA today. I had to do a personal no-no and use a web shot instead of one of my own since I did'nt want to turn around. But damn, how great is that name?

that the local mountains have gotten and headed up to Big Bear today.
The snow level started nearly at the valley floor and before we knew it, we were driving through a doppelganger of Big Cottonwood canyon.
We rode the undercover runs all day, and had it mostly to ourselves.
The powder was as light as can be, and there was 3 feet of it. Totally worth the drive, even though that was longer than our riding time.
