OUR AGGRESSIVE ANTI-ROAD RAGE CAMPAIGN -- LET'S SAVE LIVES!!!...

Posted by: lovely

Tagged in: Untagged 

Today we're posting our public service message campaign conceived by the concerned, creative and compassionate minds of Drag Racing Underground. We've certainly received critical acclaim for our previous "Take a Date to the Drags" public service message campaign, this campaign however, is designed to tackle a far more serious matter, a matter of life and death, an issue that must be addressed in order to save lives on America's busy highways and byways. We're talking about the growing problem of "ROAD RAGE"... Did you know that on average, there's only one shark attack fatality every two years? However, road rage is linked to well over 200 deaths and 13,000+ injuries per year! Please take a brief moment to absorb these startling statistics, and contemplate just how dangerous the issue of road rage has become in today's "automotive oriented culture". When "hot heads" get behind the wheel of a car, they're a genuine threat to the safety of you, your kids, and every member of your precious family. Please do a Google search of "road rage" and get yourself educated about it, then openly discuss the subject with all those you love-- educate them, advise them to not fall prey to this "killer epidemic" ravaging our modern society. Now is definitely the time to address this unsettling matter with your beloved kin. Hopefully we'll all be able to work together to make a difference. Please do the right thing by sharing this blog with as many people possible. Let's be smart and do everything we humanly can to save lives!! It's high time to tackle this serious issue and the deranged danger it imposes on our civilized way of life. Thanks...



Road Rage is a big problem. We're doing our part to bring attention to this unsettling issue. Spread the word!!


Today is "FEEDBACK FRIDAY", meaning I deal with emails that my assistant Stephanie and I receive from readers regarding our most recent blogs... Let's get right to your feedback... Yesterday's blog announcing that Franky's & Felicia's winner picks for this weekend's NHRA Toyota Nationals were cancelled, due to Franky getting suspended yet again for questionable behavior resulted in lots of emails of many varied opinions. Brian from Junction City, OR wrote, "This is the second race in a row that you've suspended Franky. How about cutting him some slack for a change? There's people like me who get a kick from him and Felicia's NHRA predictions. When you unfairly punish Franky, you punish all of us who are his loyal fans!" -- On the far other side of the opinion fence, Dean from Staunton, VA scribes "Franky dressed as Mets Michael Conforto for Halloween was the last straw for me. I don't care if Franky and his flaky girlfriend ever come back. Their race picks are usually just as freakin ridiculous as they are."... Wednesday's TALES OF THE PHANTOM RACER serial series resulted in lots of you writing in. Layacna from all the way in Flora Pago Gardens, Guam said, "The Phantom Racer series Halloween edition brought me and my whole family great pleasure in our country."-- Once again Gary from Wellington, OH wrote in, "I loved when Maria grabbed a sheet from the linen closet and pretended to be a ghost."... My blogs encouraging northeast nostalgia fans to come out for the Autumn Halloween-themed "MONSTER BASH" happening at THE DIGS AT E'TOWN on Sunday Oct 29 prompted Josie from Neptune, NJ  to say, "Be sure to save me a seat for The Digs! I'll be bringing the little ones. We make a point of never missing the Monster Bash nostalgia drag races!"...  Our so-called "SUNDAY FUNNIES THAT AREN'T NECESSARILY THAT FUNNY AT ALL" managed to get Susan from Greenbrier, TN in a bit of an angry frenzy, she typed, "I'm one of the 'smarty women' as Marvin calls us, who doesn't realize his self delusional  'male superiority', and believes that he's nothing more than a pathetic cyber bully!"... Substitute Stephanie's Snapshot of the Day blog, featuring a photo of yours truly in the E'Town Wed Night 'Race Your Ride' staging lanes, while wearing my Blast First t-shirt caused an onslaught of unexpected responses. Annie from Griss Poite Woods, MI wrote, "I've been a Big Stick music fan since middle school. Hearing that you're going to finally release a new album next year has me walking on sunshine."... Thanks to all of you who wrote in with comments. Even though there's no way we have room to print all your emails, we want you to know that all your comments and suggestions are taken into consideration... Keep those emails comin' (by using the "Contact Us" link atop the page), whether you agree or disagree with mine, or any of our substitute guest bloggers' opinions, we're genuinely interested in your feedback... We just ask that you please keep your emails short and to the point, no rambling please, and please also include where you're from, we often find the location of where folks are writing us from to be sort of interesting. If you want to remain anonymous you can do that too (just write that you want to remain anonymous in the body of your email, and we won't disclose your identity in the event we choose to make a reference to your particular opinion)... Thanks...

 

 

It's "FEEDBACK FRIDAY" here at DRAG RACING UNDERGROUND. That means I print excerpts from some of the emails that you readers write in with. I always appreciate you folks who sit down at your keyboard and type me your thoughts and opinions.


We originally planned for our controversial NHRA winner pickers Franky & Felicia to provide their picks today for this weekend's NHRA Toyota Nationals in Las Vegas. However, Drag Racing Underground's Stephanie, who coordinates the publishing of the picks with Franky & Felicia received word that Franky went off the proverbial rails yesterday, resulting in the entire publishing process falling apart. Evidently, after "having a few"  at a pre-Halloween costume party at a local Queens NY karaoke bar, where Franky was singing karaoke to one of Billy Joel's hits, someone started heckling Franky, regarding how his Mets Michael Conforto aka "Scooter" uniform/costume didn't fit properly. This resulted in Franky abruptly dropping the microphone and starting a brawl with the heckler, which later lead to law enforcement being summoned and causing Franky to spend the rest of the night in the local police precinct's "drunk tank". Details are sketchy at best, but this development once again put Franky on temporary suspension from his assigned prognosticating duties here at Drag Racing Underground. Of course we're all aware that Franky was also suspended two weeks ago from providing picks for the AAA Texas NHRA FallNationals, due to after "having a few" with some of his "buddies" from the Queens, NY chapter of what's called "The Billy Joel/METS Coalition" (a fan club that combines its members' love for Billy Joel and the NY METS), it's reported that Franky and some of his inebriated cohorts from the club hopped a subway train from Queens en route to Manhattan, where they all embarked on a reckless, drunken attempt to try to buy scalped tickets for a GUNS N' ROSES concert at Madison Square Garden. Franky got into a scuffle outside the venue while trying to score tickets, when a group of GUNS N' ROSES fans from New Jersey started teasing Franky and his buddies about the Billy Joel fan shirts and caps they were wearing. Franky took the teasing very personally and subsequently elevated the scuffle into a more serious physical altercation, which lead to Franky also getting picked up by law enforcement and forced to spend the rest of the evening in the local police precinct's drunk tank... Felicia was not available for comment regarding both the Halloween party and/or Guns N' Roses incidents. Hopefully this matter involving Franky's questionable behavior will be straightened out soon, so that both Franky & Felicia can return to these pages in time for them to provide us with their predictions for the NHRA Finals in Pomona coming in early November. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this has caused our regular readers...




TALES OF THE PHANTOM RACER... HALLOWEEN HOLIDAY EDITION!!!...

Posted by: lovely

Tagged in: Untagged 

Break the conventional chains which bind you to the belief that the only things in this world that exist are those we're able to touch and see in daylight. Ever heard of quantum physics?- Many credible physicists and scientists from the world's most prestigious of learning institutions now believe that parallel universes exist all around us-- We are likely surrounded by spectacular space, time, energy, and matter anomalies that boggle the brain, proving that what was once thought to be fantasy and fiction, can now be believed as truth and fathomable fact... We offer you a slice of hard science, combined with sporadic sprinklings of paranormal phenomena, as we here at Drag Racing Underground, proudly present to you...TALES OF THE PHANTOM RACER...Step out of the narrow-minded mist that encircles those who wear their stagnate skepticism like an outdated peach-colored leisure suit, and allow yourself the freedom to follow the adventures of drag racing's infinite and most indestructible spirit of the afterlife... Pull up a chair, toss your inhibitions aside, and ride along with one Sebastian Conrad, strong spirited eternal speed freak extraordinaire. 


Last week's episode told of how our favorite metaphysical/afterlife drag racing dream team are at their residence racing compound/headquarters, back from an assignment recently issued by their administrative superiors of the Heavenly Drag Racing Association. Maria found what seemingly at the time, is perceived to be a pint-sized, unwelcome intruder hiding in her quarters. Larry Lamb liberally sprinkled a defensive 'fairy dust' all over the scaled-down gearhead ghoul. The eerie appearing apparition is relatively calm... "I recognize that little twerp!!" blurted Fred The Wrench "His name is Mantis!! He's a clutch ghoul and bottom-end guy for the darkside's Funny Car fleet operations!"... "That's right, Freddy-boy!" gurgled Mantis, "I came here just wanting to borrow some tools -- that's all!"... "Yeah, right!" replied Fred "You don't expect us to believe that crock!?! You scared Maria out of her skin!"... "He sure did!" concurred Maria "Mantis is certainly an appropriate name for this little monster, because his head looks like that of a praying mantis!"... Larry Lamb, cleared this throat to command attention, "He's certainly a strange mix of insipid interspecies creation."...

"I'll come clean," Mantis gurgles, "I'm here looking for political and moral afterlife asylum from the Darkside Drag Racing Association, because I can no longer bring myself to perform the disgraceful, cheating, underhanded drag racing related tasks they constantly assign me!"... Peter The Parrot squawks, "Ya know, I believe the little guy, and I sure wouldn't mind having someone more my size hanging around here!"... Larry Lamb motions for everyone to follow him out of Maria's quarters, and enter a special soundproof room that houses the group's newly installed Truth or Lie Indicator Capsule... "Step inside the transparent capsule, Mantis," instructs Larry Lamb  "sit down on the chair."... "I'm too short to climb up on that chair." gurgles Mantis... Sebastian provides Mantis with a boost up on the chair and then closes the capsule's door...

"Alright," says Larry Lamb with authority "Let the interrogation begin."... Larry activates the power for the lie detector capsule... "First question," Larry says "are your intentions that of a hostile covert darkside operative?"... "No!" gurlges Mantis... "Second question," Larry dictates "Have you come to us to unlawfully obtain our team's secret engine tuning tips?"... "Don't flatter yourself or Fred The Wrench," Mantis gurgles "I've been around the block. I can hold my own with a wrench. I wasn't looking to gain any engine-tuning intelligence from you do-gooders!"... "Humph!" blurts out Fred The Wrench "Ain't this truth capsule thing supposed to humble the one being interrogated??"..."Third question," continues Larry Lamb "Is it true, as you've claimed earlier, that you indeed find yourself ethically uncomfortable when ordered to perform evil tasks?"...  "Yes!" gurgles Mantis... "Ahem, my fourth and FINAL question," says a still conservatively skeptical and cautiously wary Larry Lamb, "If we were to grant you asylum from the darkside, would you submit to us planting an override chip into one of your invocation oriented intelligence nerve endings?"... Mantis responds "Yes, yes I would."...

"Can I ask Mantis a question, boss?" says Sebastian... "Me too?!" squawks Peter The Parrot...  "I guess so." replies Larry Lamb  "I don't think our asylum seeking darkside defector would mind just two more questions."..."Thanks, boss," says Sebastian "Hey Mantis, would you be willing to help Fred and Peter with wrenching in the shop and at the strips?"... "Sure," replies Mantis, "I bet I could teach Fred some clutch science -- I'd be an asset to this team."... Fred rolls his eyes and shrugs his shoulders... "My turn to ask MY question," squawks Peter The Parrot, "Do you find that going through the drag racing afterlife as a short apparition to be challenging, ya know, wit all da shorty jokes?"... "That's a very good question, Peter." comes back Mantis, with more of his 100% truthful delivery, "Look, you and me, Peter, we're about the same size and stature, I get that, so yes, I can relate emotionally to being occasionally frustrated with wise-cracking spirits who don't realize to what degree they're getting on your nerves when cracking wise about your short size."...

Peter The Parrot squawks out loud  "I say we keep him! I'd like having this like-sized, pint-sized, clutch guy feller around! I say we keep him! Whaddaya say, boss?!?"...  Leader Larry Lamb pauses, regaining his trademark distinguished composure, before starting to flap his woolly mouth and vocalizing his final executive decision of what's to be done concerning the future and fate of Mantis, only to be abruptly interrupted by a giggling Mantis, pulling off a layer of synthetic skin, molded in the shape of a praying mantis insect's head, adhered to his head, and exposing his real parrot head! "Mantis" continues to shed more of his armor like 'body panels", and he says, minus any more phony gurgling of his words, "I tricked you all!!! Trick or Treat!!! What do y'all think of my custom-made Halloween costume that fooled you all into thinking I was "Mantis"?!? HA!!!"... "Wait a minute," says Peter The Parrot, "It's -- it's really my old friend Stosh!!! He's a bird I once served with in the Heavenly Drag Racing Association's Junior Speed Scout training program for animals!"... "That's right, old buddy!!" responds the bird that we were all tricked on this Halloween, to think was "Mantis", the notorious clutch guy from the Darkside Drag Racing Association's ranks... "Man oh man!" blurts Fred The Wrench, "You sure had me fooled, Stosh! Your costume was so accurate, and, and, your talent for mimicking the same kind of gross gurgle I remember coming from Mantis was uncanny!"... "That's why you passed with flying colors when tested in the Truth or Lie Capsule, Stosh," adds Larry Lamb, 'cause you REALLY DIDN'T have any hostile covert intentions, your intention was only to pull off a tricky Halloween themed prank!"... Maria laughs out loud at the whole situation...

"Hey, wait a minute, I remember being once told that we're not supposed to engage in any Halloween oriented activities, as per the Heavenly Drag Racing Association's longstanding linking of any and all Halloween related festivities to evil forces?" says a befuddled Sebastian... "Well, I guess you haven't been checking you H.D.R.A. update reports, Sebastian" says a now giddy Stosh "They're relaxing the rules for this calendar year, sort of as a trial experiment, to see whether it raises or declines the morale of our units during the Halloween season."... "Hey, Stosh!" blurts an ecstatic Peter The Parrot, "I got some cheese and crackers hidden under my mattress, so as Fred don't steal the edible goodies from me -- I been saving 'em for a special occasion!!"... "Oh brother," shrugs Fred The Wrench, "As if it don't get weird enough 'round here with just one pint-sized parrot on the premises, now we gots two?!?"... "Just for Halloween," says leader Larry Lamb, "Just for today, just for Halloween -- Tomorrow I'll insist that Stosh ships out back to his Heavenly Drag Racing Association designated headquarters and compound, however, for this day, this Halloween day, Stosh and all of us will enjoy Halloween together."... Everyone lightens up and shares tasty candy corn that Stosh brought in his sock... Peter The Parrot flies to his quarters to fetch the cheese and crackers...This marks our crews first time of celebrating the holiday of Halloween... Maria gets a sheet from the linen closet, puts it over her body and pretends to be a howling ghost!!... Everyone proceeds to playfully engage in wholesome and fun Halloween frolic!!...

 

Yes, my dear friends, this is the mysterious mind-bending-hereafter rebirth, and puzzling parallel universe relocation of the bewildering being, energy, and entity we call THE PHANTOM RACER...  Wow!! -- the Heavenly Drag Racing Association relaxed their longstanding "No Halloween Fun" ruling, and permitted Stosh to create a costume to fool our gang into thinking he might be "Mantis", a notorious clutch guy from the Darkside Drag Racing Association's team. It worked!!! Kind of funny to see our team get pranked, especially in a way that's is such a comical manner. BUT LET US NOT FORGET --  IT DOES SEEM TO BE AN ONGOING PATTERN IN THIS SUPERNATURAL SAGA, THAT JUST WHEN THE MOOD IS JOYFUL AND HARMONIOUS, THERE'S OFTEN TROUBLE LURKING JUST 'ROUND THE CORNER!!!! WHAT THE HECK IS GOING TO HAPPEN NEXT?!?!?... What's in store for our drag racing paranormal dream team as they continue to embark on unpredictable drag racing adventures throughout the parallel universes??... Can they all hold it together and successfully champion the powers of good??... Or will they fall victim to evil entities they cannot control???... These are just a few of the mind-twisting questions to be answered in future action-packed episodes of TALES OF THE PHANTOM RACER!!... There's more paranormal mystical and maniacal drag race mayhem coming your way!!... You definitely do not want to miss it...

Come on out to THE DIGS AT E'TOWN annual "MONSTER BASH" happening THIS Sunday at Raceway Park...


Today is the return of the "SUNDAY FUNNIES" feature here on the blog, though admittedly, the way in which blowhard Marvin conducts himself in life, and especially on the drag racing internet, the situation isn't necessarily that, ahem, funny at all-- As a matter of fact, Marvin's brand of belligerent behavior often has negative consequences for the collective drag racing scene... Marvin aggressively seeks out internet postings by women and young folk who he deems to be 'pesky' (because they don't fit in to his preferred ornery oriented demographic), and tries desperately to pick apart and dissect each and every single word they typed, often claiming the facts are wrong, even if he knows that they are really right-- Anything to create a confrontation laced with lewd language and 'f bombs' is merry sport for Marvin (using 'f bombs' sure makes Marvin feel more 'macho' and more like he's a 'big man')... When dorks like Marvin get behind their computer keyboard, and just type negativity with their fingers, it never results in anything positive for the drag racing community, because we don't need the blowhard brand of 'debby-downer' dingbat dissent that fools like Marvin dispense 24/7 on the internet. I do hope that some will take this lesson to heart, because it's a lesson that needs to be learned by those who constantly pollute the drag racing internet with endless oodles of mindless nagging negativity. Let's get smart in 2017. Let's work together to help make the drag racing internet a 'family friendly' place where more people can enjoy it and be enriched and enlightened by it. Let's put an end to Marvin's brand of blowhard bullying...

 

 

Marvin is a mess! The problem of blowhard bullies like him on the drag racing internet needs to be addressed!


Today we have our trusty Stephanie substituting for The Doc. At this time Doc is either occupied with her Big Stick music related work, and/or her fine-art sculpture related responsibilities (as she will be increasingly frequently over the period of the next several months or so)... 

We believe that Doc will hopefully be back on the clock for Monday's edition of this popular drag racing related blog installment... Of course on Sunday (tomorrow), we'll be running our regularly scheduled, critically acclaimed, anti-cyberbullying feature we like to call "THE SUNDAY FUNNIES THAT AREN'T NECESSARILY THAT FUNNY AT ALL" starring miserable Marvin....  Please enjoy my selection for today's Snapshot of the Day... This installment features a candid photograph of our fearless leader standing in the staging lanes, dressed somewhat down, casual and incognito. From this past Wednesday's "Race Your Ride/Test N' Tune" night at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park in Englishtown, New Jersey (her favorite drag strip in the world). She's negotiating with a pretzel she just purchased for nighttime nourishment. Wearing her classic "Blast First" t-shirt. I'm told that with the new Big Stick album FINALLY coming out in 2018, there's talk of it possibly being made available on the much in-demand "vinyl record format" in the Unite Kingdom, Europe and Japan via the distinguished Blast First record label. A nice night at the drags for Drag Racing Underground's sassy gal. We strongly recommend and encourage that more folks consider coming out to their local drag strip for test n' tune nights. It really is a blast of downright drag racing fun for everyone! Get out to the drags!

Today is "FEEDBACK FRIDAY", meaning I deal with emails that my assistant Stephanie and I receive from readers regarding our most recent blogs... Let's get right to your feedback... Yesterday's blog expressing what an exciting time I had attending this past Wednesday night's "Race Your Ride Test N' Tune" at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park resulted in Arthur from Tansboro, NJ writing, "Doc is right. Wednesday nights at Englishtown is the place to be. I love the grudge races and No/Time cars -- Dustin from Belleville, NJ scribes, "I saw Doc and the same red 1959 El Camino pictured in her article on Wednesday night at Etown. That definitely made it the best test & tune night of my year!"... Wednesday's TALES OF THE PHANTOM RACER serial series resulted in lots of you writing in. Catja from all the way in Lahti, Finland said, "Until this week's episode, I was not aware that Peter The Parrot had such a complex concerning his short stature."-- Once again Gary from Wellington, OH wrote in, "Mantis thinks he can actually teach veteran Fred The Wrench some pointers about clutch science? I doubt that very much."... My blog encouraging northeast nostalgia fans to come out for the Autumn "MONSTER BASH" happening at THE DIGS AT E'TOWN on Sunday Oct 29 prompted Barry from Deal, NJ to say, "I have THE DIGS marked on my calendar. The Halloween spin on the event is cool. I'm bringing my kids this year."...  Our so-called "SUNDAY FUNNIES THAT AREN'T NECESSARILY THAT FUNNY AT ALL" managed to get Karen from Boswell, OK in a bit of an angry frenzy, she typed, "If Marvin really believes the first amendment and free speech is a joke, maybe he should try telling that to my uncle who lost his vision fighting for those rights in Afghanistan! Marvin can go to Hell!"... My blog featuring recognition for all the winners of this past weekend's AAA Texas NHRA FallNationals caused Denise from Vancouver, WA to write, "I agree with Doc. I'm sure Franky must have been happy about Brittany Force winning Top Fuel. He's crazy about her. Even though Felicia seems to be his steady girlfriend, I think he has a serious crush on Brittany."... Thanks to all of you who wrote in with comments. Even though there's no way we have room to print all your emails, we want you to know that all your comments and suggestions are taken into consideration... Keep those emails comin' (by using the "Contact Us" link atop the page), whether you agree or disagree with mine, or any of our substitute guest bloggers' opinions, we're genuinely interested in your feedback...

If you want to remain anonymous you can do that too (just write that you want to remain anonymous in the body of your email, and we won't disclose your identity in the event we choose to make a reference to your particular opinion)...
