The Devil’s Own School Bus

School Bus of Fear

On a side street in a wealthy suburban neighborhood overlooking the water, we see: a schoolbus, unmarked, plugged in to someone’s power, clean and obviously customized, with spikes on the front hubcaps. Possibilities include:

  • Cool awesome extreme sports anti-drug mobile extreme awesomeness vehicle!
  • Purpose-built vehicle for school bus races.
  • Intentionally scary Freddy Krueger type schtick by horror movie aficionados/Coil fans/over-the-top leather guys/Turbonegro fans.
  • Bro mistake.

You make the call.

  1. Holy crap. There’s commuter rail in the Valley now. Yes, that Valley. With a bikeway. And “amenities”. It actually happened! That kinda rules.
  2. Another thing that kinda rules is the band Akron/Family. Various mp3bloggers have been raving about these guys for a while now and I got a couple mp3s that way and liked them, and started following their myspace. Now I got a whole abum from them on emusic. Hey, indie rock may not be dead after all!
  3. If you want to know what the Secret Rulers of the World are up to, the first thing is to read the shocking and nearly unbelievable Protocols of the Elders of Texas. Wheels within wheels, my friends. Wheels within wheels.
  4. In less awesome news, something big was on fire down in Laguna tonight. I saw engines and a ladder truck from two agencies and cop cars from three agencies all hurtling down there Code 3 tonight. Hope it wasn’t a brushfire.
