BMW R Nine T “Track Grinder”

BMW released the R Nine T which is one of the coolest Cafe Racers to date, and it’s just as cool the Ducati Sport Classic when it first came out. Now the R Nine T was given to a few designers who came out with some amazing designs, and this is one of the coolest I have seen. Urban Motors designed this machine and I love the way it looks, it came together to be a real piece of art. I would love to try this machine, I would think it handles amazingly.

The Track Grinder is the world’s first remodeling of the R nineT and already sets the bar high for the remodeling of the Boxer: with plenty of love of detail, a courageous choice of color and a lengthy list of customized and hand-made parts, the typical cross-over style of this remodeling project is the embodiment of URBAN MOTOR.

Stories Of Bike – Passion For Machines

There is no question that I love two wheeled machines, it brings out someone’s character and they fall in love with their machines. These videos are about Cafe Racers, guys who love these retro machines and work on them to make their own machine, I have always loved cafe racers because they have so much character. They might not be the best at cornering or the fastest, but each rider enjoys his machine differently. Over the years I have always wanted a retro looking Ducati machine because I have loved Italian machines but are a bit more powerful then the usual Cafe Racers. In these videos each person has a different feel for their machines and rides for different reasons, but like all bikers are all of the same mindset and that is the best thing about bikers, all lines are cleared and every loves being a biker. Cafe Racers haven’t caught on in Kuwait yet, but that will happen in due time since there are different cultures growing here.

Welcome To Da 90s

PauseDa90s is dedicated to the pop culture of the 90′s, when the Bulls were the champs, when Sega made hardware, when neon and Hulk Hogan reigned supreme, and when Vanilla Ice qualified as a rapper. Man this video brings back memories. This is how we live back in the day, how portable was, and we loved our games. Back when WWE was really called WWF!

Great Mazinger 1969

I think everyone knows how Mazinger is, well at least the kids from the 80s do but he has crossed many generations and I think we are especially familiar with him in Kuwait. Now that I managed to get my hands on a Fewture Great Mazinger 1969 Model, I was very excited, for those who don’t know Fewture makes THE coolest models, and they are almost all metal and are very high quality. I have this model for sometime but I wanted to place him in the perfect spot, somewhere I would see every day and enjoy it.

It took me about 30 minutes to unbox, clean, and put him together while taking the photographs and I think in my head I was waiting for him to come alive and to become a real gigantic robot, I still have a notion that one day I will be piloting a super robot. From my previous posts I have the Senshiro Jumaro Model and Ghost In The Shell – Tachikoma which is still one of my favorites.

Movie Car Posters

Some very cool car posters related to all kinds of nerdiness and pop culture, from movies to tv shows and video games. A lot of famous vehicles you can choose from and some interesting ones that take a bit to figure out. I like the idea that each poster is named after the vehicle so it takes a bit to figure them out and some of them are obvious, if I had the right place I would hang these up for sure.

  • Halo – Warthog
  • Ghost Busters – Ectomobile
  • Big Trouble In Little China – Jack Burton Express
  • Back To The Future – Delorean Time Machine

Bite @ Ninos

I was a fan of Ninos since it opened up on the seaside, I enjoyed their food but I hated it when it go crowded. I would usually try going to at odd times to enjoy the food and not feel its too cramped, I probably haven’t been to the seaside location for over 6 years now. Since the opening of Ninos in Avenues I have been going pretty consistently, at least once every two to three weeks.

The best part is that even though they have been open for a while, the quality of food has not degraded, it still tastes damn good. I still order my Veal Limone with a side of pasta, and when I’m done with that meal, it doesn’t feel to filling. For appetizers I do like the Buffalo Wrappers and Chicken Strips. I had my magazine with me that time while waiting for people to arrive, I’m the type that wants to order right away.

Pacman Seating

Creative materials to make the pacman furniture, and you can customize it completely to your liking. This is probably the coolest retro furniture I have seen in a while. Who doesn’t have fond memories of Pacman and chasing after the ghosts that were trying to kill you a minute ago.
