Life on Jupiter has changed dramatically since then.
Don’t ask me how I know.

Clint Eastwood working on his 1958 Jag XK 120 in 1960 (colorized).
Interesting that every time I worked on my car my hands and forarms showed it and there was no camera around, but then I’m not Clint. The photo would be entirely believable if it were Chuck Norris because his cars piss oil and refill themselves automatically once he steps outside.

The World’s Ugliest Dog Contest celebrates its 25th anniversary today [21 June 2013] at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma, California. Twenty-five plus “beauty challenged dogs are foregoing their usual beauty regimens in preparation.”
[Images and description found at the Ugliest Dog Contest Contenders. Note that all of them are members of the breed the missus refers to as "Kikmi Dogs."]

Nice BAMB flashmob work in Cardiff, Wales, 5 October 2013, playing “Colonel Bogey,” a march written in 1914 and made famous in the movie “The Bridge On The River Kwai.”
Whenever I hear that popular tune, for some reason I think of psychobilly. Yeah. Let’s go there.
The Wolfgangs‘ “Cannibal Family” rocks it in this vid from 2011. Where do we go from here? How bout a hot rod / juvenile delinquent movie?
“Devil On Wheels” dates to 1947, features some vintage rods and sappy lessons.
In addition to being the first film about street racing youth, it is also notable for being one of the first films to feature actresses (Terry Moore & Noreen Nash) wearing bikini tops. [Wiki]
Have a great weekend, folks. We’ll do something different tomorrow.

[Found here, here and here. Stitched the first together from 3 others and un-jitterfied it. In the 2nd, one of the cats lost a tooth. The marmot lens cleaning .gif is a timelapse from this vid.]
