The Driver Reportedly Consented to a Search

By Christopher Wilde

I say bullshit.  I don't believe someone trafficking in 200 pounds of marijuana is going to consent to a search of their mini-van, as is reported by KUTV News.    Pictures of the van shows the driver has invested in a heavy duty stereo system.

I'm torn between getting drugs off the street and what appears to be a gross violation of civil rights. 

Drug traffickers let me make a suggestions.  Spend just a little money to place some hidden cameras in your vehicles.  Then when the Utah Highway Patrol pulls you over and "allegedly" get's your consent to search your vehicle, not only will your drug case get thrown out, so will all the drug cases they've ever worked on.

Nitrogen Tire Inflation

By Christopher Wilde

I just spent a small fortune for desperately needed new tires.  They filled  my tires with Nitrogen.  This is the first time I've heard about nitrogen tire inflation.  Apparently it's suppose to provide a major gas saving.  Which cause me to wonder if the savings is so profound why doesn't everyone just run out and get their tires inflated with Nitrogen?

I IMAXED All Over the Place, It Was That Good!

By Christopher Wilde

Girls will want to sleep with him, men will want to be him.  Yes, I just saw the most recent installment of the Batman.  Christopher Nolan's the Dark Knight is far better than the first.  This version of Batman is even darker and the themes more philosophical.  Ledger is brilliant as the joker, sure give him the Oscar.

Now, it's not that I'm not capable of giving some killer review and telling you all about it, but I believe a good review should be it was good, it was bad.  This is good, very good.  Go see it, have fun, get good seats or get a bad one like I did and sit in the handicap section.  What, what?  The guy in the wheel chair already had a seat.  That's true but the seat was open. 

 

Go, go have fun.  Go now!

Dear Direct TV,

By Christopher Wilde

Please create a few channels that play nothing but music videos.  The way it use to be in the beginning.  No VJ's, game shows, cribs, or other crap.  Please separate these channels into categories and for each have a station for old videos and current videos.

You may want to consider partnering with XM to add visual content to match their play lists. 

 

Thank you

 

P.S. Do it yesterday.

 

Why this letter, well because I just watched RadioHead's new video on my computer screen and thought it would be nice to watch it on my TV, but where exactly would I go to watch it?  Well I suppose you could just squeeze it into your new On Demand service.

Gas and the Utah Driver

By Christopher Wilde

As you might have guessed I'm working more this summer and writing less.  Anecdotally I can tell you that despite four dollar a gallon gas prices, throughout the day, drivers on Utah roads still travel well in excess of the speed limit, singularly occupy and barrel down the road in pristine SUV's, and generally do not seem inclined to change their ways.

The one exception to this is the tremendous amount of motorcycles I see on the road distinct from the usual summer riders by their grotesquely corpulent body's plopped onto the seats and dripping to the road.
