Let's Do The News! (July 20, 2013)

JM: Now let's do the news and...ahem...GREAT NEWS!

JC: What?

JM: The Dacia Duster...

(audience laughing)

JM: The Dacia Duster...get's a special edition Goodwood Festival of Speed Special Black Edition!!!

JC: Great...

(audience laughing hysterically)

JC: Anyway, there's so much madness going on around this year's San Diego Comic Con. Particularly, the BBC's doing big stuff for this year's Comic Con because of Sherlock, Doctor Who, and Orphan Black. I was wondering, how big are those shows when it comes to popularity? I mean come on, both Sherlock and Doctor Who are cult classics but the newcomer Orphan Black, which stars Tatiana Maslany as Sarah Manning and the Clone Club...hmmm...No wonder this new show which aired the whole Spring became an instant cult phenomenon since...um...Copper.

RH: Well, when it comes to fandoms, they think big. Very big. Big as a lolly...

(audience laughing)

RH: Oh and since this is Matt Smith's final appearance to this year's Comic Con before his regeneration this Christmas, I was getting skeptical about his new look. I mean look at him now...

Matt Smith

(audience laughing)

RH: Who is he? That's not Matt Smith! That's some...um...

JC: Calm down Hammond. That's Matt Smith. The Eleventh Doctor. For the final time. During the press conference, it seems that fans have getting a bit saddened about his departure but well, since there's a saying that "when you gotta go, you gotta go". Matt's moving on to bigger and brighter things and hey, just wanna say "hi" though...

(audience laughing)

JC: Oh, yeah! You know who else are present? Steven Moffat, Sue Vertue, and Mark Gatiss at the Sherlock/Doctor Who BBC America booth. Also, David Bradley's present thanks to the upcoming biopic titled Adventures in Space and Time, which was directed by Sherlock's Mark Gatiss, and David Bradley's playing the role as William Hartnell, the first Doctor Who in the history of television. So um...looking forward?

(yes!)


JC: Ooh! I can see a fangirl fangirling!

(audience laughing)

RH: Hey! Guess what? Look what I had in my iPhone!

JC: What is it Richie?

(audience laughing)

RH: Richie? Why are you calling me Richie? Anyway look at my new app!

It's BMO time!

JC: (spits) Wha? You got a BMO app?

RH: Yeah! Looks like with an app like that, I finally had myself a BMO! I even set an alarm clock when I want to wake myself up and look at it...so cute! I just wanna poke and tickle BMO so many times! Ohhh... (baby talk)

(audience laughing)

JM: Anyway, enough baby talking to your BMO app. I was just wondering...what did I tell you about haul videos?

RH: Wha...what do you mean? I didn't do something about "haul" stuff...

JM: Then...how can you explain that?



(audience laughing)

RH: Wha...

JC: Don't lie. I saw you holding a stuff toy of both Phineas and Ferb. You're making a "haul" video out of it. You know that...

(audience laughing)

JM: Oh and Richard...I heard that your Isabella plushie you've just ordered...do you think it's coming next week or so?

RH: Uh...I don't know. I'm busy tracking down the delivery like what we did when we race the mail with the Porsche a few years ago.

JC: Yeah and since your Isabella plushie's the cutest...are you doing some...Brainiac stuff with that?

(audience laughing)

JM: Yeah, Richard. I'm guess you want to use her cuteness to outcute any other cute characters, much like the thermite stuff from Brainiac.

(audience laughing)

JC: Anyway, while on the subject about Phineas and Ferb, although we're still waiting for their first ever crossover between them, Iron Man, the Incredible Hulk, Thor, and Spider-Man, I'd just picked up from the PAF staff that they're planning a Phineas and Ferb Star Wars special!

(huh)

JC: No joke! This is real. They're planning to make on and set to be aired...next year!

RH: Wha...oh wait. Disney now owns LucasFilm last year. So, how come Phineas and Ferb joining the fray of well, let's just say...spoofing Star Wars?

(audience laughing)

JM: He's right, Jeremy. Phineas and Ferb are...jedi warriors?

(audience laughing)

JM: Or what if...Isabella can be...um...Princess Leia?

(audience laughing)

JC: Guys, your speculations bested me but let's just find out next year, okay? Anyway, it's not just a spoof, it's a tribute to the Star Wars franchise that thanks to Disney, they're back. Yep. Star Wars is back. Happy?

(yeah)

JC: Good. Oh! You know what else for next year?

RH: Uh...what?

JC: Family Guy vs. The Simpsons in a special crossover event! Anyone heard of it?

(audience murmuring)

RH: Well, not quite an audience as such but they got the memo. It's Homer Simpson vs. Peter Griffin for next year.

(audience laughing)

JC: Oh, some terrible news. You know Detroit? Yep. Detroit. The city famed for making cars. It's the city that garnered the nickname "Motor City". Anyway, the terrible news is that Detroit is now the biggest US city in history to file for bankruptcy. You know what this means?

RH: No more money for Motown?

JM: They're broke?

JC: Yes! Detroit's officially bust!

(huh)

JM: But but but...what's going to happen. I mean, the General Motors HQ were located on this city...and what's gonna happen for next year's NAIAS?

JC: Nah, no response yet from them but still if that city's filed for bankruptcy. It's already game over. Goodbye Detroit. We will remember most of your cars ever made...

(awwww)

RH: You're not too sensitive, aren't you?

(audience laughing)

JC: Hey, has everyone seen the new Honda Fit?

ホンダ 新型フィット・フィットハイブリッド[2013年9月発売予定] 新型車解説・試乗/渡辺陽一郎
2014 Honda Fit
JC: Well, what do you think?

RH: Well, it looks like an old Honda Civic Euro in a fat suit to me...

(audience laughing)

JC: Oh and there's another sad news and this time, it's the long-running Initial D manga.

JM: Oh wait. Initial D? Isn't that the one with the AE86 drifting and challenging against other racers in different mountain roads? Man, I like that franchise. Manga, anime, movies, collectibles, I like it. Especially the cars featured.

JC: Yeah but sadly, the franchise has came to a spiraling end. Word from the creator, who is Mr. Shigeno himself, that the Initial D manga will cross to its finish line on July 29, 2013. You know what that means right?

JM: It's the end of the AE86 as we know it?

JC: Precisely and that's definitely a bombshell worth noting. Anyway, that is the end of the news.

Cars GT6 Should Put (Volume 1)

Everyone knows that more and more car gamers everywhere are willing to prefer the upcoming Gran Turismo 6, coming this winter exclusively on the Playstation3 console, than the upcoming Forza Motorsport 5, coming this autumn exclusively on the new XBOX One console.

Sure, it may have a 1200-car lineup; some are new while most came from GT5, but for me, I think it's not quite enough because for the upcoming GT6, they don't know what "quality over quantity" means, the whole "Standard" and "Premium" tier car lineup is a stupid idea, the worst car physics because they've been partnering with Yokohama, one of the worst tire makers in the world because no other supercars of today wear those, the lack of community-made content such as livery editing and the feature to upload replays, less partnerships, and everything but why would most idiots want to have a go for it rather than the completely perfect Forza? I mean come on, you would wanna go old-fashioned rather than modern, well good luck with that. I hope whatever's missing would be your lesson.

However, if those weren't a concern. my biggest concern would be the cars and since while other racing game franchises such as Forza, NFS, Grid, and others features the latest and the hottest machines than Gran Turismo, it's going to be a total pain for me if this don't go exactly as planned. To address the issue to Mr. Kaz Yamauchi and the rest of Polyphony Digital, I made myself a special segment I called...



CARS GT6 SHOULD PUT! Lovely. This is a brand new segment starting from now up until the game comes out this winter 2013, I'm going to provide five different cars that Gran Turismo 6 should put. It's going to be every week so every week, I'll be posting more of the cars that GT6 should put so by the time it arrives, it shouldn't be a rot and keeps every players happy.

Are you ready? Here goes...

For this week's CARS GT6 SHOULD PUT, here are the cars that Gran Turismo 6 should put. (No Porsches, please. You know the rules...):

1) Ferrari F12berlinetta '13

WHY: This is Ferrari's most powerful road car right before the hybrid hypercar LaFerrari showed up on the flesh. It showed up at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show and based on its press releases, it lapped round the Fiorano quicker than the Enzo or the 599 GTO (which Gran Turismo had no plans for that). The engine is a 6.3L V12 engine, the same thing as seen on the FF, but it's been uprated to produce 740PS of power, that's more than the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4, and 690Nm of torque.

I believe that Gran Turismo 6 should put this because this can be a very nice addition to the game's Ferrari lineup and it's one of the most enjoyable cars I have ever witnessed in ages. May not quite be an alternative to its Lambo rival but my gosh, it's still a thoroughbred with a throaty V12 engine.


2) Aston Martin Vanquish '13

WHY: This is Aston Martin's newest flagship grand tourer. It serves as a replacement to the outgoing DBS and it inspired its design from the now sold out One-77 hypercar. Although it may not quite as good as the other hardcore Astons but it's still a beauty worth enjoyable to drive. James May drove that on a Series 19 episode of BBC Top Gear and shortly, XTM's Top Gear Korea had its host Kim Jim Pyo drove one round the BBC Top Gear Test Track in one episode.

Since the Willow Springs is included on GT6 and with the LFA returning and the SRT Viper announced, I bet this can be worth the ticket to recreate the Aerial Laser Tag scene from Top Gear Series 19 Episode 2. Please make it possible to add the new Vanquish on GT6. I'm begging you...


3) Lancia Rally 037 '82

WHY: Replacing the Stratos in the world of rally, the 037 became the only Group B rally machine to defeat the might Audi Quattro. A lot of Gran Turismo fans are begging to have this classic rally car featured on GT6 and since the rally-spec version of the Quattro is added, this car makes it quite the perfect treat to initiate the duel between the Quattro and the 037. Mathematical!



4) Fiat 500 Abarth Esseesse '09

WHY: Because the standard Fiat 500's not good enough to tickle my fancies. Why is Gran Turismo ignoring this silly little Abarth anyway? Anyway, the Fiat 500 Abarth is one cool car to handle and imagine if I can take it for a spin on Rome Circuit, it should be a breeze. Come on, Kaz. This hot Abarth 500 needs to be on GT6.



5) Land Rover Range Rover Evoque '11

WHY: That reminds me, why is Polophony don't consider having Range Rovers in the world of Gran Turismo. Oh come on, I don't really like the Range Stormer concept you'd just offered because having a one-car lineup is not good enough. We really need more Range Rovers. Hmmm.... How about this Range Rover Evoque. When used in dirt and snow, the Evoque really behaves like a Range Rover even though in its crossover sizing.

Please make it happen for us...




The results please? So, if Polyphony's still on the rethinking process whether these cars I've mentioned will be featured on Gran Turismo 6, whether in game or as a DLC, you can't say that I didn't had a bit to do with that.

Take that to Kaz Yamauchi!

What's in our Car Town garage today? (July 20, 2013)

What's in our Car Town garage today?

2013 Honda N-ONE

A year after the launch of the Honda N BOX kei car and months after the launch of the "+" version of the N BOX, Honda launched the N-ONE, the third addition of the Honda N-series range of kei cars. The N naming stands for NEW NEXT NIPPON NORIMONO, marking this a new chapter in Honda's kei car story. Although it is an entirely new model, the N-ONE traces back to its roots from the legendary N360, Honda's first kei car ever made from the late 60's.

2013 Honda N-ONE

1969 Toyota 2000GT

Dubbed as Japan's first supercar, the 2000GT from Toyota is one of the most historical cars ever made in the history of Toyota Motor Corporation. Back at the Yatabe, the 2000GT set a top speed of 220kph, which is a little by modern standards but it's worth a crushing against the little compacts of today. Popularity aside, there has been an open-top version driven by Aki from the Bond film You Only Live Twice. Reason why the 2000GT's top removed for the film is because of Sean Connery's height can't accommodate the inside of the car. Only 300 units were made and back in the 60's, it costs 2.38 million yen, but now, it's a collector's item in the game of high-price auctions.

1969 Toyota 2000GT
1970 Datsun 240Z

The Nissan Z-Car story began when Yutaka Katayama (then-president of Nissan USA) and his people began developing the 240Z project and by the October of 1969, the Z-car was born. The S30 Z-car is the first of its kind and for the Japan-spec model, it was powered by a SOHC L20A inline-6 engine which develops 130PS of power. The US-spec model, however, features a 24L engine which develops more power than the Japan-spec one. Popularity aside, the S30 propelled the starring role of the Devil Z from the Wangan Midnight manga franchise.

Let's Do The News! (July 18, 2013)

(cheers and applause)

JC: Hang on...hang on...Did you just said "Spirit Animal"

JM: Yeah. I said it... Literally, I don't know what a "spirit animal" is...

(audience laughing)

RH: Ok...what is a spirit animal anyway?

JM: Well, I don't know. Whenever I hear someone saying "Mabel is my spirit animal", "BMO is my spirit animal", "Karen Gillan is my spirit animal", "Perry is my spirit animal" blah blah blah... I'm really really confused because I really really don't know what that is.

(audience laughing)

JC: Anyway, you know what else is confusing?

JM: What?

JC: Us doing the news!

(audience laughing)

RH: Yeah and yesterday we talked about how adorable BMO was and yes, Adventure Time's trusty little gizmo was definitely one of the cutest cartoon characters as seen on TV.

JC: Yes I know. BMO is super cute for an all-purpose gizmo. Anyway, I just saw something in the internet that PBS' Idea Channel posted a video about what if BMO is expressive of feminism. Oh come on, BMO is neither a little living boy or a real baby girl, even though its talking to itself at the mirror. Anyway, here's the clip that sums it up...



(audience laughing)

JC: He said "her"! So that means...BMO's a girl! (laughing)

JM: Yeah right...(laughing) Wait a minute! What do you mean BMO's a girl? Oh come on, you know BMO doesn't had a gender like most machines and things do. So, why is there an article about feminism and BMO? You know BMO was just a...machine. A robot! A video game machine! A gadget! Whatever!

(audience laughing)

JC: Yeah. That clip doesn't make any sense. What does BMO had to do with feminism? This what the same thing what if Doctor Who is a religion but never mind about that. Let's move on...

(audience laughing)

RH: To what? Should I play "Little Brothers" again or do we really move on?

(audience laughing)

JC: Anyway, summer means more conventions and this week sees one of the biggest conventions of the year. Yep, it's San Diego Comic Con and this year means more because this year packs more and more for the geeks who are willing to attend the convention. There's also SDCC 2013 exclusive merchandises from one of their sponsors like for example...

RH: Well, there's a BMO plushie available exclusively at this event, you know. You might really wanna go there for that...

(audience laughing)

JC: Possibly but aside from that, there's loads and loads of other exclusive merchandises, especially from Doctor Who, Sherlock, and Orphan Black. Interested in those?

(yes!)

RH: My oh my! I can see some wide audience here! YEAHUH!

JM: Ow! Why you...

(punch!)

RH: Whoa!!!!

(bang!)

RH: Ugh!!!!

(audience laughing)

RH: Ow...that's even more painful than Regular Show's Rigby getting punched in the game of punchies...

(audience laughing)

JM: Punchies?

RH: Yeah. Punchies! And that hurts...a lot!

(audience laughing)

JC: Anyway, enough of the punchies stuff or things get messy around here. Okay, does anyone around here still remember a classic cartoon from the last decade called Cardcaptor Sakura? It's one of CLAMP's creations and it's one of my childhood anime crush that caused me some headlines...

(audience laughing)

RH: Yeah right. It's that anime that caused us trouble.  It's the one where everyone around us calling us names and embarrass us on front.

JM: Yeah and we hate them.

(audience laughing)

JC: Anyway, at the upcoming Comiket 84, which will be held at the Tokyo Big Sight from August 10 to 12, 2013, a merchandise company will offer some new merchandise from that classic CLAMP masterpiece we all love to hate because of our childhood trauma...

(audience laughing)

JC: They said that they'll be offering a paper bag, two clear file folders, two IC card stickers, a tumbler mug, a "jumbo" fan, and a bath poster for 3,000 yen (about US$30). Also, they'll be offering a B2-size Card Captor Sakura tapestry featuring a new image for 4,000 yen (US$40). So, if you were on that event, would you take the risk?

(audience laughing)

JM: Nope. Afraid not. I have had it with that late 90's magical girl anime show with the theme song that goes "na na na na na na na, na na na na na na, na na na na na na na...."

(audience laughing)

FPV GT


JC: Oh wait! I picked up some bad news! And this time it's another bad news from Ford of Australia. Remember the time when Ford announced to stop Australian production as well as the Falcon in 2016 and move on importing Ford models to the upside down country? Well, there's some more bad news because FPV, which Ford is what Holden is to HSV, will be closing its doors for good next year.

JM: Wait...FPV? Ford Performance Vehicles? Never heard of it...

JC: Yeah James, it's because it's an Australian thing, like the Vauxhall VXR8 thing we had which is Australian-made. Anyway, says here that if the final generation Ford Falcon will be launched next year, it will be the end of the FPV brand for good. So...um...do you remember the FPV cars, guys? Guys?

(audience laughing)

RH: Oh wait! Sorry about that. I don't know more about FPV. I only know about the VXR8 thingy because it's a Holden HSV. We had no further knowledge about Aussie Fords.

(audience laughing)

JC: Anyway, with Ford stopping Australian production, it seems that Ford's Aussie range will be filled with the Taurus, Explorer, and the next generation Mustang, which means, the lineup's too American than being Aussie, if you know what I mean?

(audience laughing)

JC: And that is the end of they news!

Turbo

Turbo

You think all snails move slower than what you think? You think they're dull? Boring? Well, you might as well think twice because say hello to a snail unlike any other.

Meet Turbo (played by actor Ryan Reynolds). He's just your average garden snail but he has a big dream; to be at the Indy 500 race so he can be just like his hero, Guy Gagné. Every morning, he practices to be fast but it's tough accepting life that he's just a snail and what a snail goes, a snail goes. One night, the strangest thing was happened to Turbo's life. First, the moving truck swept him away from the highway and then he got landed on a modified car. When the driver kicked in, Turbo got suck into the engine and then, the nitrous from the car absorbed through Turbo's body.

After such a freak event, Turbo noticed something. His eyes flashes like a car light, he can trigger a car alarm sound in case of something Turbo bumps into and amazingly...SLO NO MO! He gained the power of speed, meaning he is as fast as an indy car! Later on, he was caught by a man named Tito. Tito and his pals race snails for fun but Turbo blew them away. Turbo's superspeed benefited Tito and now, he wants Turbo to be at the Indy 500. With the competition including his lifelong hero Guy on his sights, can Turbo's superspeed blow them away up to his last drop?

Well, this family movie is definitely one of the most unique of any other Dreamworks cartoon movies such as Madagascar and HTTYD and it really packs a star studded cast of Ryan Reynolds as Theo/Turbo, Paul Giamatti as Chet, Samuel L. Jackson as Whiplash, Snoop Dogg as Smoove Move, Maya Rudolph as Burn,  Ben Schwartz as Skidmark, Mike Bell as White Shadow, Michael Peña as Tito, Luis Guzman as Angelo, Bill Hader as Guy Gagne, Ken Jeong as Kim Ly and Michelle Rodriguez as Paz. If any ten year olds willing to watch this movie for the whole summer, best to consider this because what the kids really want for the movie is a cute character that redefines himself in the name of speed, well almost because this is a kids movie. Those kids really want to ask their parents to be with them while watching Turbo.

Anyway, the storyline is not quite bad but sadly, it doesn't had the thrills that most viewers consider nor is the ideal chemistry between cute and cool because here at Turbo, they just don't value the meaning of cute. It's all about being a speed freak. If those little tikes watched Turbo, they would go "WOW! TURBO IS COOL!" but it's not just how it makes it cool, it's what it makes it quick.

It maybe not quite a family-friendly substitute to any Fast and Furious movies but this isn't about fast machines. Turbo is all about a fast snail and his new friends willing to help him fulfill his dream to race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Although, Turbo may not quite as good as any other kids movies of 2013 but it sure leaves some moral lessons at the end and hopefully after you watched the whole film, heh, hope you'll be inspired by Turbo. Remember that, kids. If you want to be Turbo good, there's nothing too big or too small for you to dream. Very soon, Turbo the snail can become your spirit animal to the very end...Yep, he's your perfect spirit animal like everyone else whose their spirit animals can be their favorite characters.

Let's Do The News! (July 17, 2013)

JM: Now, let's do...THE NEWS!

RH: Yeah, the news and oh! Next week, there's the must have ADVENTURE TIME ENCYCLOPAEDIA coming and it's going to be a must for every AT fan worldwide. Here's the cover...

The Adventure Time Encyclopaedia

(oohh)

RH: Yep, next week, it's going to be at your nearest bookstore and it has everything you need to know about your favorite AT characters. From Finn the Human, Jake the Dog, Princess Bubblegum, Ice King, LSP, Lady Rainicorn, Marceline, BMO, they had them all. They even explain about the destinations and things to do in the fantasy land of Ooo...

JC: Yeah, that's a lot to read for an Adventure Time fan and the one thing that amuses me a lot is when I saw a sneak preview of the upcoming AT Encyclopaedia, there's something about an instruction manual about BMO. Yep. The BMO instruction manual is in this book and take a look...


JM: Uh-huh, that's the instructional manual for BMO.

RH: Yeah but why would a super adorable...um...robot...machine...video game...thingy had a manual we didn't notice?

JC: That's the point and it says here (Ahem) "CONGRATULATIONS! You are now the proud owner of a cutting-edge, handheld, mash-up, multi-user gaming device with individual simultaneous computron controllers and Vectrex reverse-prefix modulators". And what bothers me the most on the intro was those writings I can't understand what it is...

JM: Uh, actually the ones below were...(whisper) Korean. They're hangul letters on it which translates to the one you just said.

JC: Exactly, and also there was this procedures about assembling a BMO...


(audience laughing)

JM: These are the assembling instructions?!

JC: Exactly and what I didn't notice that I can see some taekwondo references on it and wait a minute. Do you really have to resort to some martial arts to assemble a machine you've newly bought?

(audience laughing)

JC: I mean look at the instructions. It's so WIBBLY WOBBLY TIMEY WIMEY! I can't understand what it just said! It goes...Zip! Whir! Buzz! And look at it...it says that BMO is more than just a video game machine...it's a mobile friend-simulator which became part of Finn and Jake's daily lives!

(audience laughing)

JM: Yeah, Jeremy. But despite all of these, BMO's one of my favorites. Although, we'd never know what was it's gender. We don't know if its a boy or a girl because like most machines, it doesn't have a gender...

JC: James May, have you seen the graybles episode? The first one? There was that part that BMO's talking to itself by the mirror and then BMO said (ahem) (imitates BMO) "I'm a little living boy!"

(audience laughing)

JC: Here's a short clip...



(audience laughing)

RH: Oh, how cute BMO just said...Peeing! I can't believe I'm so fell in love with this talking gizmo! I just wanna hug BMO so bad! I mean, can we see that again?

JC: What? The whole clip?

RH: No! The peeing part!

Peeing!

(audience saying awwww)

RH: HOW CUTE BMO IS!!! That's it! I'm so in love with BMO.

JC: Yeah...That makes me wonder...When BMO just said "I'm a little living boy", that made me puzzled. Is BMO wished to be a real boy?

JM: Uh no. Sadly, BMO's turned into a little living girl by the name of Candy from the Gravity Falls TV show, who was one of Mabel's friends.

(audience laughing)

JC: You know...I kinda felt sorry about that BMO character throughout the whole season. With its innocent smile, feels like my heart's warming.

(ooohh)

JM: What are you talking about, Jeremy?

JC: It seems that when the first time I saw Adventure Time, I thought, my oh my! Isn't BMO one of the cutest characters of the show? Although BMO, like any other machines, is incapable of all emotions, BMO does had a lot of emotions. Whenever I see BMO in most AT episodes, I sometimes got squealed over BMO's cuteness. I mean look at BMO...

BMO

JC: For a toy like BMO, it's more than that. BMO's more cuter than a swarm of Adipose and best of all, if there was a BMO stuff toy, I would be glad to hug one just for once. You know what...I wonder...

("Little Brothers" playing)
Little Brother, 
I remember when you first came home
then came another...little brother of our own.

Even when you break my toys,
You will always be my
Little brothers cause you're younger,
We're related and you're boys.

Even when you're making too much noise,
You will always be my
little brothers cause you're younger,
We're related and you're boys.

RH: ♫ Little Brothers....Little Brothers...♫

JC: Uh, Hammond? You kinda bumming me out with the song there...and hey! Who put this bowl of onions here?

(audience laughing)

RH: You know, I got to say, I really like BMO because it's cute but I disagree because the only character I know to be more cuter than Adventure Time's BMO...was Phineas and Ferb's Fireside Girl Isabella!

(audience laughing)

JC: Wait...what?

RH: Yep. I just bought an Isabella plushie at the Disney Store and pretty soon, it's going to be like the good old thermite experiment from Brainiac.

JC: Let me guess, you want to show if Isabella's cuteness can outcute any cute character especially the Adipose from Doctor Who and BMO from Adventure Time. Hmmm...


RH: Anyway, I'm gonna see who's adorable...ah ah...atchoo!

JM: Aw! You sneezed like a kitten!

(audience laughing)

JC: Anyway, while on the subject about the Asiana crash at San Francisco, there's one article I find it to be noticing because there was a news report about the names of the pilots from the Asiana flight 214 crash and the names were...


JC: Wha...those aren't names! Their racist remarks! I mean, are you sure these are the names of the pilots from the Asiana crash at San Fran?! Sum Ting Wong, Wi Tu Lo, Ho Lee Fuk, Bang Ding Ow. Are those names? They're racist remarks! What kind of a news report was that?

JM: Well maybe when the NTSB confirmed those, it turns out it's nothing more of a prank done by some unpaid intern. Besides, Asiana is an Korean airline and those fake names were...Chinese. Anyway, while the TV network from San Fran behind this report is issuing an apology, I just heard that Asiana's suing that network for racial slur. Talk about a chain reaction there...

JC: Oh...(bleep) them...

(audience laughing)

JC: Anyway, there's a brand new S63 AMG coming and it's based on the new model. Look...

2014 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG

JC: It has a 5.5L V8 turbo engine, develops 585HP of power and 900Nm of torque. It's more powerful than the supercharged Jaguar XJR so, got any remarks for this new model?

JM: Ho Lee (bleep)

RH: Bang! Ding! Ow!

(audience laughing)

JC: Yep. I heard you loud and clear. And that's the end of the news!

2014 Suzuki Swift

2014 Suzuki Swift

2014 Suzuki Swift interior

Suzuki's Swift hatchback is now on its 2014 Model Year and for this updated version, we'd expect a revised front bumper, L-shaped LED daytime running lights on the foglamp housings, fresh 16-inch wheels, LED-type high-level brake lamp, and get this...

Dual Jet Engine

The 2014 Suzuki Swift features Suzuki's newly developed DUAL JET ENGINE which balances performance and economy, Suzuki claims. Well, what's it all about Suzuki's new DUAL JET ENGINE? Suzuki implemented the dual injection system on its 1.2L petrol engine and it works by increasing vaporization, making combustion more efficient. It channels fuel to two intake ports instead of only one per cylinder.

Aside from that, Suzuki's ENE-CHARGE system and ECO-COOL was also implemented for the 2014 Suzuki Swift. In case you're new here...

ENE-CHARGE provides a regenerative braking system that converts kinetic energy during deceleration into electricity stored from its lithium-ion battery, which is used to power the vehicle's electrical components while ECO-COOL is an air-conditioning system that keeps cool air flowing even when the engine was shut off by its idling stop system, relying on the fan that blows air over a cold sink in the aircon's evaporator into the cabin.
With the DUAL JET ENGINE and the ENE-CHARGE, fuel economy is now up to 26.4kmpl, making it the most fuel-efficient of the 1.2L class.

Oh yeah, Swift models using the DUAL JET ENGINE and ENE-CHARGE can be distinguished by the DJE suffix after the grade names XG, XL, and XS. Also, DJE models can expect a speedometer similar to the current Honda CR-V as well.

The 2014 Suzuki Swift starts from 1,279,950 to 1,787,100 Japanese Yen.

So, what do you think about the DUAL JET Swift?

Happy 20th birthday, Suzuki Wagon R!

It was September 3, 1993 when the first generation Suzuki Wagon R went on sale in Japan and I can't hardly believe that for 20 years, the Suzuki Wagon R gained five generations. Just look at all the regenerations Japan's no.1 kei car had gained...

First generation Wagon R (1993-1998)

Second generation Wagon R (1998-2003)

Third generation Wagon R (2003-2008)

Fourth generation Wagon R (2008-2012)

Fifth Generation Suzuki Wagon R (2012-present)

To celebrate Suzuki Wagon R's 20th anniversary, a special edition Wagon R 20th Anniversary Special was offered and for this special model, the exterior features a special front grille plated in black and comes with specially designed 15-inch aluminum wheels. A special "20th Anniversary" badge is located on the side view as well. On the interior, they've added a special front armrest box and mech inside door handle to make it a bit unique.

Suzuki Wagon R 20th Anniversary Special Model

Oh yeah, starting now, the fuel economy of the Wagon R, with its ENE-CHARGE and ECO-COOL, has now improved to 30kmpl and how's that possible for the fuel economy upgrade? There's an answer: a reduction of frictional resistance of the engine as well as the reduction of air resistance! That's right! Also new is the new feature that you will notice: a new Radar Brake Support system with a clever system that can automatically brake the car in a near-collision scenario. This isn't a first time a kei car had that clever safety feature because last year, the facelifted fifth-generation Daihatsu Move, it's target rival remember, has that kind of feature.

So, with the Wagon R's fuel economy now updated to 30kmpl, that means, that's even better than the facelifted Move's 29kmpl fuel economy! Wow, seems that both Suzuki and Daihatsu are throwing everything they got in the name of fuel economy. It seems that both Suzuki and Daihatsu are in the fuel-economy war right now...

But still, this was the Wagon R's birthday wish; to be more fuel efficient than the facelifted Daihatsu Move as well as the new Mitsubishi eK Wagon. Really? Let's compare:

2013MY Suzuki Wagon R - 28.8kmpl
2013MY Daihatsu Move - 29.0kmpl
2014MY Mitsubishi ek Wagon - 29.2kmpl
2014MY Suzuki Wagon R - 30.0kmpl

So, by a long margin. the updated version trounced both the Move and the eK Wagon in its class. Now that's how the Wagon R's 20th birthday wish supposed to be.

Happy 20th birthday, Suzuki Wagon R!

Let's Do The News! (July 16, 2013)

River's Diary

Okay, River's Diary, tell me what's going on around here...I'm bored as a fudge...

- The return of the Datsun brand kicks off with the maiden model of Nissan's low cost brand, called the Datsun GO, which will go on sale in India next year. First glance, it was based on the Nissan March and it has the same 1.2L engine from the March while mated with a 5-speed gearbox.

2015 Datsun GO

- Hmmm...While I don't know what's going on with the staff behind the upcoming Mad Max Fury Road film, I just heard that the famed Mad Max movie franchise gets its first ever video game for next year.

- Mercedes-Benz teased an upcoming AMG model based on the new S-Class W222.

- Skoda revealed a new member of the Skoda Rapid range, called the Spaceback and it is essentially a hatchback version of the new Skoda Rapid low-cost sedan.

2014 Skoda Rapid Spaceback

- Texas-based tuner, Hennessey Performance, are planning to upgrade the 2014 Corvette Stingray by giving its LT1 engine some supercharged boost up to 700bhp. They're also working on a 1000hp variant as well.

- I'd never realized that Toyota USA collaborated with Nickelodeon for a special SpongeBob concept SUV based on the...um...something that is not available in Japan, it's a 10-letter name, starts with H and ends with the R. (What was it again? I can't tell you that) Anyway, it was unveiled on July 13, during SpongeBob Day at the Padres vs. Giants game in San Diego, California and the Japanese carmaker says that it will "hit the road for a 'Happy Driving!' promotional tour throughout the U.S., bringing SpongeBob’s special brand of fun to seven locations across the country"

TTFN!

Suzuki -Third Generation- MR Wagon (MF33S) Wit

It's been two years since Suzuki launched the third-generation MR Wagon, which I think it's the geekiest of the kei cars targeted for the geeks. Although, the front view looks kinda disappointing to me because it kinda looks like it's been in the state of panic, what's redeeming to me is the fancy gizmo on the interior called the TOUCH PANEL AUDIO in which I can do the swiping on the touch panel.

Wait a minute, if the face of the current MR Wagon wasn't quite stylish, how about adding a different kind of cocktail for the current MR Wagon? Yep, it's time to welcoming back the stylish version of the MR Wagon called the MR Wagon Wit.

2014 Suzuki MR Wagon Wit

Well, for the new MR Wagon Wit, it seems that the disappointing front view as seen on the standard model has been wiped out from its misery and now it kinda looks like an...uh...honey I shrunk the Nissan Elgrand. Really, this new MR Wagon Wit now looks like a mini-Elgrand to us? Yep, it really looks like a Nissan Elgrand to us and it seems that the new front view really wants us to play some optical illusion tricks to us. Feels like we're living in the fun house without the house prefix...and the fun. Sorry.

2014 Suzuki MR Wagon Wit

So, implementing for the 2014 model year, both the normal MR Wagon and the brand new Wit model gained Suzuki's ENE-CHARGE and ECO-COOL as implemented on last year's new Wagon R. In case you are wondering how ENE-CHARGE and ECO-COOL works, do you want me to sound like James May? If not, you know the drill. If yes, let's make it shorter, okay?

Suzuki's ENE-CHARGE provides a regenerative braking system that converts kinetic energy during deceleration into electricity stored from its lithium-ion battery, which is used to power the vehicle's electrical components while ECO-COOL is an air-conditioning system that keeps cool air flowing even when the engine was shut off by its idling stop system, relying on the fan that blows air over a cold sink in the aircon's evaporator into the cabin. Get it now? Good.

Anyway, thanks to the ENE-CHARGE and ECO-COOL, both the normal MR Wagon and the MR Wagon Wit can accumulate a fuel consumption based on JC08 Mode standards of 30kmpl. I repeat, 30KMPL. 3-0-K-M-P-L. Surprisingly, that matches the fuel consumption of the current Wagon R with ENE-CHARGE and that's not all because starting now, a turbocharged 660C DOHC VVT engine is now an exclusivity for the Wit and with the promising 27kmpl, the turbocharged Wit is about 1kmpl more than the turbocharged Spacia Custom. You heard that right.

Of course, on the interior, you can still expect the same peripherals from the standard model as well as the available Touch Panel Audio which I find this gizmo to be my favorite until the Peugeot 208's touch screen struck me through but for the new Wit, having learned its lesson from its big sister, the Alto Lapin Chocolat, the interior is now sporting a two-tone color for both the seats and the panel so you can expect a fair bit of class and glamour lurking through the new Wit.

So, if the normal MR Wagon's not quite perky for the geeks, would you consider one? Well, because of all of that Holy Guacamole around here, the new MR Wagon Wit starts at around 1,290,450 Japanese Yen. Simple as that,

That's all for Top Gear Korea Season 4



Well, Season 4 of XTM Top Gear Korea has finally come to a conclusion. It's been fun...

We've seen presenters comparing high performance SUVs, doing a lap time party, we see the future of Korean police cars, Vin Diesel makes a surprise appearance, a new Range Rover vs a man in a wing suit, hosting a new rally championship, the boys are tuning a Hyundai Genesis Coupe to create the TGK 520, a Chevrolet Trax vs BMX riders, making public service announcements against distracted drivings, and creating a new kind of tyre for different kinds of cars.

There had been numerous power tests on this season but the most interesting ones were the power tests took place at the BBC Top Gear Test Track. In one episode, TGK presenter Kim Jin Pyo arrives at the BBC Top Gear Test Track to try out the new Aston Martin Vanquish and then in the next episode, he even tried out the McLaren MP4-12C round the track.

For this season, the fastest car round the Top Gear Korea track was the Audi R8 with the lap time of 1:28.27

Season 4 sees the arrival of the Volkswagen Polo R-Line 1.6 TDi, which replaced the VW Golf VI as the basis for the show's STAR LAP TIME segment. There has been numerous guests such as Lee Jang, 2AM, Lee Sang Min, Son Ho Yang, Kim Joon-hyun, Park Shin Hye, Kim Min-Jung, Ja Tae-hyun...there were 19 celebs thrashed the VW Polo R-Line 1.6 TDi round the TGK track and the quickest was Lee Jang, with the lap time of 1:55.25

Well, that does it then. Thanks for everyone who watched TGK Season 4. See you soon. The Stig will too...

Top Gear S20E03

Episode 3 of BBC Top Gear Season 20 is a big one because the boys went to Spain, driving three convertible supercars. Jeremy Clarkson drives a McLaren MP4-12C Spider, Richard Hammond drives a Ferrari 458 Spider, and James May drives an Audi R8 V10 Spyder.

In the end, don't mind about the 458 Spider revealed as the choice for the cost-conscious convertible fan because...when it comes to speed, all three takes it. For quietness, the R8 and the MP4-12C takes it. For discretion, economy, value, and equipment, the Audi R8 Spyder takes it. Who cares?

Still, for the fun of it, Sherlock Holmes takes on the Top Gear Test Track. You're talking about Sherlock's Benedict Cumberbatch here. Yep, he's the STAR IN A NEW REASONABLY PRICED CAR of that week and he did it in...1:47.8.

Let's Do The News! (July 14, 2013)

JM: And now, the news and it seems that we're in the sea of disappointed faces because...um...what just happened to them? I wonder why.

JC: Well, James. I tell you why is this happened. Maybe they've watched last night's....um...

RH: Gravity Falls? It's the one where Dipper, Mabel, and Soos chasing down some kind of...um...demon summoned by the show's main villain, Lil Gideon, through Stan's memories.

JC: I was gonna said that but...Oh! No wonder I'd expect a sea of disappointed faces from the fans when they caught up the part where...um...Anyway, Richard, about that demon that summoned to hunt down the secret, I was just wondering that it kinda looks like the...um...some kind of cult-looking triangle that you'd expect on the US Dollar bill.

JM: Or perhaps, it kinda looked like the cult conspiracy known as the Illuminati.

(audience laughing)

JM: If you were the kind of people who read one of Dan Brown's novels, then you'd probably known what an Illuminati is or by watching a movie called Angels and Demons. Anyway, the Illuminati-looking...spirit we just saw...

RH: Uh, James, actually, that spirit's named Cipher. Bill Cipher. The spirit that was summoned by that little jerk from the mystery book in order to track down the deed to the shack, much like what SpongeBob's Plankton do when it comes to steal the secret formula. Sounds familiar?

(audience laughing)

RH: Anyway, later on, on the showdown between the guys vs. Bill Cipher, our heroes just thrown everything they've got to stop him until he quits but they've warned them about a prophecy's going to happen.

JC: What is it?

RH: (imitates River Song) Spoilers.

(Audience laughing)

JC: Anyway, after the battle, there's the part that caused the a sea of disappointed faces from the fans. It's the one that Lil Gideon has the upper hand because he's got the deed and obliterate the Mystery Shack once and for all. Pity. So, what will happen on part two?

JM: Uh. Jeremy. Um...(whispers)

JC: (bleep)!

(audience laughing)

JM: I said some other week because next week. It's going to be pre-empted (I think) by some new DCOM titled Teen Beach Movie, the one with the Aussie-born Maia Mitchell and the dude who played Austin from the TV sitcom Austin and Ally, Ross Lynch.

JC: Wait. Maia Mitchell? Isn't she the one who guested on the Phineas and Ferb Musical Cliptastic Countdown special a few weeks ago?

JM: Yes. Yes she was. Anyway, about that new DCOM, due this Friday, it's about bikers vs. surfers in the beach. Well, catch this summer treat on Friday, okay? Save the date.

(cheers and applause)

JM: Anyway, let's talk a typical food what poor Filipinos eat. For three decades, galunggong or round scad was the typical food poor Filipino families eat because of its pricing and it became an indication about how poor the Philippine economy was from the Cory Aquino period. Now, it seems that galunggong is no longer the poor Filipino's fish anymore because what I just heard that thanks to climate change and the politics, prices for galunggong rose from P59.8 per kilo in 2003 to P107.7 per kilo last year, according to the National Statistical Coordination Board (NSCB).

JC: So, which means, what I found from the data from the NSCB that the poor Filipino's fish was now...wait a minute...it's "Tilapia" or St. Peter's fish because of its pricing retailing for P96 a kilo last year, likewise up from P59 in 2003. But even though Tilapia is cheaper than galunggong, I think it's still delicious when it's fried. Mmmm....fried tilapia.

(audience laughing)

JM: Don't forget, even though Tilapia is now a poor Filipino's fish, the undisputed poor Filipino's meal of all time was...pancit canton because of its 8 peso pricing or more. I learned that from the Word Of The Lourd article. The More You Know.

JC: Yeah. The More You Know, James. The More You Know.

(audience laughing)

JC: Okay, now while we're sticking in the Philippines. Does everyone heard about the MMDA's proposed new color coding scheme that will ban your car twice a week?

(audience murmuring)

JC: Anyway, what the MMDA said this is a proposal that would keep it off the road twice a week. Based on the reports I saw, vehicles with plate numbers ending in the following digits will be banned from the metro's streets on the following days:

1, 2, 3, 4 on Mondays;

5, 6, 7, 8 on Tuesdays;

9, 0, 1, 2 on Wednesdays;

3, 4, 5, 6 on Thursdays; and

7, 8, 9, 0 on Fridays.

RH: Wait, what? Twice a week? But why?

JC: Beats me. Mr. Francis Tolentino said that they're adopting "what is being implemented in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil" in reference to the proposed adjustment to the number-coding scheme, or the Unified Vehicular Volume Reduction Program as it is officially known. I don't know. Does Rio had that kind of color coding?

(audience murmuring)

JM: I dunno!

(audience laughing)

JC: Anyway, twice a week? What a total pain in the (bleep)! Why is the MMDA trying to implement such schemes that was made to lessen the traffic but sadly it keeps getting worse? Don't you know that it's those big buses and trucks carrying cargos are causing all this?

(audience laughing)

JM: Uh...

JC: Come on. This isn't solving anything about banning our cars on the road twice a week. It's gonna be...

(BABBLE ALERT)

JM: What was that?

JC: I don't know. I got a message from my smartphone. BABBLE ALERT if you know what I mean? Let's see...hmmm....hmmm...hmmm....oh...

JM: What is it?

JC: Says here that cops in Vancouver, Canada, confirmed that actor Cory Monteith from Glee found dead earlier at the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel. He's the dude who played Finn Hudson on Glee when the series aired on FOX four years ago.

RH: Oh...Too bad...

JC: Yeah right. And that's the end of the news. Let's take a look at what the Brits came up on Goodwood.

JM: Yes indeed and let's go first to Bentley with this...

2014 Bentley Continental GT3 Racecar

RH: Yeah. What it is is a track-only version of the Bentley Continental GT, called the Continental GT3. Since this is a race-only version, you can't use it to go for a trip to a Monte Carlo casino, unless you are in the Monaco racetrack or any other racetrack you know.

(audience laughing)

RH: Anyway, it has a 4.0L V8 engine which develops 600HP of power while fitting most of the regulated racing peripherals suitable for GT3 racing purposes. It's rear-wheel drive, has a carbon fiber propshaft, LSD, hydraulic steering, double wishbones, Brembo brakes, anything that makes the Continental GT3 racer a purebred British racing machine that echoes Bentley's commitment for motorsport.

Škoda Octavia (Typ 5E) RS

2014 Skoda Octavia RS and 2014 Skoda Octavia Combi RS

Once again, I'm disrespecting another high-performance version of an everyday car and this time it's the turn of the hot version of the third-generation Skoda Octavia. RS or vRS, whatever you call it, returns for the all new Skoda Octavia and what I'm unaware is that Skoda claims that this new model is the most powerful Octavia in the world (*at this moment in time). Hmmm... The most powerful Octavia in the world, huh? I'm not so sure if this kind of superlative makes sense and to find out, I have to dissect the vRS' potentials one by one by one.

Starting first on how it behaves or misbehaves in a mindless kind of way. Okay, while Skoda says this is the ultimate version of the new Octavia, which is nothing more of a Volkswagen Golf for the elder gentlemen, there are two kinds of engines available for the new Octavia RS. One is a turbocharged two-litre petrol engine and the other one is a two-litre diesel engine which doesn't make any sense for this superlative.

2014 Skoda Octavia RS

First of all, the 2.0L TSi engine, that's what we're focusing at, develops 220HP of power and when mated with a six-speed manual, it takes 0-100kph in 6.8 seconds, that's a 0.4 second improvement over the previous model and with the 248kph flat out speed, it's faster as well. No wonder I was agreeing to this kind of superlative though. Hmmm...This is the most powerful Octavia ever made, I had to be careful not to let my brain explode...

So, what about the diesel version? Well, for the downside, you'll sacrifice power over fuel economy because this diesel engine develops 184HP of power, 0-100kph in 8.1 seconds, 232kph flat out speed, and 119g/km of CO2 emissions, which some say it's a 19% improvement over the old model.

At first glance, I thought I was going to disrespect this machine but it wasn't worth it. This machine really loves to play silly tricks on its sleeves and driving one of these feels like you are in a one way trip to Hallucination-ville. Or perhaps, the way it behaves feels like you've been running through an olympic-sized pool...filled with custard. Whoops. Just saying the old "walk through a pool full of custard" stuff. Where did I heard that from?

2014 Skoda Octavia Combi RS

Anyway, while this is like running through a pool full of custard, it's still a Czechoslovakian sub machine-gun disguised as a laptop. You'd never know what will hit you next but thanks to all those character-building traits, the Octavia RS is made for the mad, the bad, and the downright stupid. Whether if you were in the saloon version, which costs 619,900 Kč, or in the station wagon version, the Combi, which costs 654,900 Kč, the choice of having either a 2.0L petrol or a 2.0L diesel, mated with either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed double clutch AT, it's still one of the best Skodas to have since the Fabia.

2014 Skoda Octavia RS interior

So, after driving this, I had to realize which is funnier than driving the Octavia RS. Is it hot chicks blowing too much caravans? Blokes peeing on a wounded man on the street? Putting a CD on a microwave? I don't know but this isn't all brainy stuff because driving the Octavia RS will give drivers the same feelings you'd expect on the ones I'd mentioned. Even though it has the best of both worlds, your desire to abuse this in the name of science remains inevitable.

Thank you Skoda, and thanks for dropping by.
