Night Ride!

I had no choice but to blog away about this little gem!

If you grew up back in the good old 80's and watched late night tv in Ontario than you'll remember this clip. One of a series of three clips used to end the programming day over at Global Television; it's loaded with classic shots of a night time ride down Yonge Street, Toronto! This thing brings back endless memories of a time when television channels actually stopped airing programming because it was night time. . . yeah. . . tv used to shut itself off kids. Twenty-four hour programming is not the way it's always been. Test patterns, colour blocks, the playing of O Canada as a shot of our flag waved in the breeze all signaled the end of the viewing day, but first you watched Night Ride.

Thanks again to my lovely lady who found this clip for me!

Ok. . . as promised. . . the picture of the uber-sweet ride Malcolm and I saw while walking over to Kenderdine Rd yesterday!

                                                              ECTO 1

Sweet baby cheesus! It's the Ecto 1! Seriously, this car rocks. Even if the Ghostbusters theme song probably doesn't pump out of the empty computer casings high tech speaker system mounted on the roof as it rolls down the streets of Saskatoon. To the owner of this sweet ride : you sir are a genius! 

And, NO. . this doesn't have anything to do with what some might call my unhealthy attraction to Dr. Egon Spangler.
Ok. . . . maybe it kinda does. . just a little.

Wow, haven't been here in awhile!

Yikes! It's been over a year since I last updated this thing. So much for diligently blogging huh. Ah well. . . 'twas a very busy year. What with moving cross country and all. Anyhow. . .figured I'd come clean things up a bit and get back to posting.

Tomorrow (or later today as some people may hasten to point out after looking at the time stamps lol) . . I will endeavour to transfer the exceptionally sweet picture I took while walking with Malcolm earlier! I promise it's worth viewing! Here's a relative teaser pic for your viewing pleasure:
