Hank Watson's Garage Hour podcast

Holy carp!  Too much good stuff (and a bunch of random hilarity, because gearhead).  This Garage Hour was a gathering of the goon squad, based on no reason other than it's awesome.  From stalwart cohosting machine Diesel Ayatollah, Basso Profundo himself (Chef Jeff) and an operational (when not operating) Gringo Rich, to the threat of FNG weather with newb cohosts Ryan and Kevin (to name a few), Hostus Maximus Justin Fort keeps this thing on the rails... for about 30 seconds.

Apparently, eight gearheads, blowtorches, bolts, Blues Brothers, barbecue, beers and a garage adds up to gearhead talk-radio genius.  Then it's all cars, trucks, beers and guns, plus the aforementioned stuff and some mentioned aft:

Banning Priuses from the Mumford lane?  Obviously.  Banning Burns Co. slant-drilling in New York?  It's in there.  The end of good rock?  Clocked it.  E46 BMWs for fun and VANOS repair?  Yup.  Burns Slant-Drilling Company?  Worked there.  Skeet surfing?  Every Wednesday.  Gearhead must-watch movies?  Listed some.  The taste of ATF?  Not as good as a Pineapple Grenade from Protector Brewery.

Also, according to this bunch, Bullitt is now anti-albino, the top shelves are genetic victim markers, Jeeps are born seeking repair-victim status, all aftermarket wheels are potential dealership victims, and trannies are supposed to stay between the (frame) rails.  Then they make sure to insult or offend Moe Sislack, Bob "Catfish" Filner, work gloves, power steering, Mercedez-Benz engine designers, Persian mechanics, cartoons, snowflakes, bulls and Huffy.  So much.

The Gearhead Consultancy assembled for another late-night garaging session to turn some enviroweenie tropes into tasty tripe (emotionally charged watermelon environmentalism makes good eatin').  Hostus Maximus Justin Fort was joined by mechanical man Gringo Rich, and the two broke in fresh new cohost and homebrewer extraodinaire Agent Neighbor.  The junior G-Man was wise enough to show up carrying a keg, so he got along alright.

Discussions got down to the brass ticky-tacks right quick, exploring the downsides of hybrid and electric cars (cost, inefficiency, toxicity, value, etc), solar (what's good for your roof ain't good for the neighborhood), wind (condor Cuisinarts do not make chicken) and biking to work (how many bags of groceries did you pick up on the way home?). There was also a serious melon-balling of all this lofty - and baseless - environmental cotton-candy, because hyperbole that appeals to hipsters, narcisists and sychophants does not a very merry reality make.

It's not all ball bearings, though - there are good elements to every bad idea, and these mechanical minds can find them, or get sauced trying.  It's not the technology's fault, after all, but the fools forcing a 9-volt into a AA hole.

There was also talk of beer: Protector's Pineapple Grenade and Berserker, Garage Brewing's Porter, the luscious and lethal Quadrangle, and Agent Neighbor's sublime pale.  Music?  Soundgarden, the Farmers, Deadbolt, the Crow soundtrack, Stone Temple Pilots, plus Crow's Nest and Red Rock.

Cheffing beer with the philosopher beermakers... The Garage Hour goons got their guns to Burning Beard for a serious hour of brewing business in San Diego's East County, including cursed locations, the tipping point for critical brewery mass, the importance of cultivating good retailers, and rebranding your failures.  There's fancy beers like New Damage, regular Normcore, Old Banksy and Du Hast (some appearing in cans!), and some of the most elemental details of the Wondertwins' upcoming third-anniversary party at the Beard (April 13 - act fast, espcially if you like Alice in Chains, Faith No More, the Allman Brothers or Deep Purple).

The Beard has the best jukebox in the world, and we always end up talking music too - everything from Chris Cornell in retrospect, Audioslave in Fallujah, and Filner in a headlock. There was also the Fiends, Deadbolt, a Foreigner/Asia/Saga shunt, and a minute or two on the upcoming Burning Beard Fight Club.

Just add Jeff "Sideburns" Weidekr and Mike "Tape Deck" Maass (plus .45 Phil, Chef Jeff, the Lovely and Tolerant Karen and Hostus Maximus Justin Fort): it's gearhead talk radio.
