Plymouth-Dakar Challenge


Julian Nowill created the concept of the ‘Banger Challenge’ in 2002 to take the piss out of the real Dakar, showing that people on a limited budget can go where the big boys go. The idea is now copied by a large number of people, some with charitable objectives and some not. The original 3-week Banjul Challenge continues to the finishing line in Banjul, The Gambia, where the LHD cars are auctioned for charity. The year 2007 saw the launch of the Timbuktu Challenge where LHD and RHD cars are auctioned in Bamako, Mali - again for good causes. For 2008, there will be a new route to Baku on the Caspian …’The Silk Road Challenge’ again with a charity auction, while for those who cannot afford to give their cars away, there will be a ‘Morocco Offroad Trial’ with a roadbook written specifically for the teams by Sahara guru Chris Scott. Teams will spend as much time as they like in Morocco from 1 week upwards and the aim is to push 2WD and 4WD vehicles to the limit… within the security of a group of cars. This will suit off roaders who rightly are concerned with the risk of solo off piste driving in remote areas. plymouth-banjul

In your free time, you used to watch it, too

YouTube Preview ImageSince it’s memorial day and all, I figured, why not take a look back into the past a little bit? I dunno if this guy classifies as a veteran or not (bad joke) but he was certainly a childhood hero. Along with Jim the Hacksaw Duggan.

Come to think of it… that’s maybe a little bit sad.

Bioluminescent Creatures and Dinoflagellate Locales


Not long before Curious Expeditions came to Eastern Europe to search for the wondrous and macabre, we had the opportunity to travel through Puerto Rico. It was a magical trip filled with rain forests, the gigantic SETI radio telescope in Aricebo, and the landing port of Ponce de Leon. However, one experience shines above the rest. On the island of Vieques, in a dense mangrove swamp is one of the most magical places we has ever had the pleasure to visit.

We had come on a moonless night and the stars shone down as perfect pinpoints. It was a cool summer night when we slipped into the warm, dark water. (Actually I less a€oeslippeda€A and more fell face first out of my kayak into the salty bay.) As we glided into the water, our faces were suddenly bathed in an eerie, otherworldly green. Brilliant plumes of translucent green swirled all about our limbs making us glow. The light wasna€™t coming from above, but was radiating from all around us. From the water itself.

HBO’s Recount


Starring Kevin Spacey, Bob Balaban, Ed Begley, Jr., Laura Dern, John Hurt, Denis Leary, Bruce McGill, and Tom Wilkinson, Recount brings viewers behind the scenes at the controversial Florida recount. This illuminating, hugely entertaining film pulls back the veil on the headlines to explore the human drama surrounding the most controversial presidential election in U.S. history.

Mixing news footage and verbatim dialogue into fictionalized re-creations, Recount examines the torturous process that culminated in the Supreme Court decision in Bush vs. Gore. The Republicans, led by charismatic Texan James Baker, seize the initiative as the case is tried in the judicial system and the court of public opinion. The Democrats play catch-up until Ron Klain, Gore’s former chief of staff, takes over and starts matching Baker’s political hardball with tough moves of his own. Mutual respect forms between the two as the fate of the presidency plays out among a colorful cast ranging from the impressive (appellate lawyer David Boies) to the maligned (Florida’s Secretary of State Katherine Harris).

Recount recreates many of the movers and shakers in the Florida fight. Among the Democrats are Ron Klain (Spacey), soldiering on despite being demoted as Gore’s Chief of Staff; Michael Whouley (Leary), Gore’s Chief Field Operative; Warren Christopher (Hurt), the onetime Secretary of State whose passivity eventually yields to Klain’s more forceful tactics; and David Boies (Begley), an appellate lawyer recruited to articulate the Democrats’ message. Republicans include James Baker (Wilkinson), another former Secretary of State with a will to win to match Klain’s; Ben Ginsberg (Balaban), the campaign’s Lead Counsel; Katherine Harris (Dern), Florida’s Secretary of State, remembered as much for her makeup as for her role in determining the winner; and Mac Stipanovich (McGill), a lobbyist with the moniker "Mac the Knife."

Recount is directed by Jay Roach (Meet the Fockers, Austin Powers films), and written by Danny Strong (best-known as an actor in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Gilmore Girls). It was executive produced by Roach, EmmyA® winner Paula Weinstein (HBO’s Truman), HBO Films exec Len Amato (Blood Diamond), and OscarA® winner Sydney Pollack (Out of Africa). The producer is Michael Hausman (Brokeback Mountain). [HBO.COM]

In my opinion it’s a little bit late for mofo’s to be talking about this. It’s funny how we would call other nations "undemocratic" and send observers to their elections and whatnot, but, in our own country the same type of shenanigans goes down. All you have to do is watch the black box voting video to be disgusted, much less dig into what actually happens/happened. I love Kevin Spacey, though.

Here is the imdb page in case you’re interested in the cast list or something like that.
