I was given quite a scare when I heard that my bro, n8
dogg was in a car accident while on his way to see our
friends, the "Sushi Twins". The following
photo is a picture I personally took only weeks before his
incident which totalled the car.
is the last photo taken of nWo 2
named this 1999 Suzuki Vitara Convertible as nWo 2.
It was our second mode of transportation to my vehicle from
(1997 - 2001) seen in the photo below.
original nWo Toronto mode of transport - nWo 1 (circa
me back in 1998 in front of the Big
BLACK Machine's house in Toronto, posing with my 1997
Chevrolet Cavalier then known as nWo 1. It was our
way to going to summer Saturdays at Canada's Wonderland and
evenings at the Docks. This pic was taken before the accident
I had in the winter of 1999, where I added more of a sport
bumper and snazzy blue lights..
retired earlier this year from the nWo Toronto organization
when I moved to Orlando, Florida.
n8 is okay and I'm thankful. He is more than a just a friend
to me, more than a best friend... he's my brother.

past weekend, I had an amazing trip back to my second home
of Miami, Florida! I drove down with my parents who wanted
to go to the white sandy beaches of Hollywood. They prefer
nowhere else.. those beaches are less crowded and have lots
of public parking.
taking a nice long walk on the sands of Hallandale Beach,
we all packed it up and then I departed from them. I went
on to go and meet my good friend, Sarah. She needed to go
and do some clothes shopping. So her and I went to Aventura
Mall and checked out Wet Seal. The store to me was reasonably
priced with a lot of hippie looks and stretchy jeans for sizes
"zero" and up. Sarah tried on some real hot outfits
( not for me -- for herself ) and we then drove down to meet
the rest of the gang: Angie, Veronica, Kevin and Marlon.
to go to the Miami Bayside. A place where there are amazing
daiquiris each and every corner. Especially the ones from
FAT TUESDAYS. Those ones will mess you up!! The musical act
for that segment of the night wasn't appealing to us, so we
bounced and went to Monty's in Coconut Grove. As soon as we
got there, the place was bumpin! The musical act that night
was a calypso/reggae group called "WYLDFIYAH". They
were really good. Now, as soon as I got onto the dancefloor,
I didn't even get a chance to start dancing yet -- these 2
amazingly hot women jump on my dancing every which way. My
group of friends (and myself) was in utter shock!! I didn't
hold back, I danced with them.... always willing to have fun
with adoring cK fans!
went really well as the music just continued to jam and our
little group danced away until 1:30am when the live band's
set was finished. After that, I had to drop everyone home
because Marlon had to work early. That's okay.. the night
went perfect and we were quitting while we were ahead.
I was driving Sarah home, I get a call from my cousin, Tee
who has flown in from Los Angeles. She's in South Beach at
a club called KRAVE. I told her I'll meet her outside. After
I dropped Sarah, I went to South Beach and parked. This night
it was really packed.. Lennox Lewis was rumoured to be partying
there, Beenie Man and Angie Martinez had a concert there too..
So much people were cramming the streets.
my cousin and met her outside club KRAVE. As we were chilling
outside -- all of a sudden we hear these loud "POP
POP POP!!!" noises just only feet away from us. Then
there is this big guy running towards us and then comes to
a stop in front of club KRAVE. He pleads with the security
guards to go in, and they allow him to and then shut the club's
doors off. Nobody can leave and nobody can get in. My cousin,
Tee and I don't exactly sit around to wait and see what happens..
we get into my ride and bolt!!
basically the night as I drove back to where I was staying
and left the next day. Nothing else.. but a great weekend
at that in Miami!

seen this JoeBoxer commercial? When I first saw it in Toronto,
I couldn't stop laughing. I was like, "What is he doing?!?!"
He sure looks happy. This commercial is announcing that Joe
Boxer boxers are now being sold at K-Mart. You mean they weren't
before? Oh well.. now we all know!! So lets go out and get
some!! (boxers that is)
of the most popular questions asked to me this weekend was
regarding the new Cadillac CTS. People ranging from my own
dad, to friends who never even look at "domestic"
cars before were asking if me (the guy who drove a 1994 Cadillac
Fleetwood to school) if I have seen this new car. And the
answer is "yes" of course, but why is that all these
younger people are noticing it? Well, Cadillac has seemed
to have succeeded. They created a car that attracts a much
younger consumer. The majority of my friends are very much
into sooped-up Hondas or Toyotas, and would never even consider
buying American. The new Cadillac CTS seems to be catching
their eye and I guess that's a good thing. Cadillac was really
lacking sales in the past decades. At one time, being the
absolute best car money could buy, Cadillac sales dropped
and took on more competition from Japan and Europe. Anyways,
enough of the history lesson. What do I think of the Cadillac
CTS? Well, I have had the opportunity to sit in it, and I
found it quite small. Maybe that's what they are going for..the
car did seem very high tech but it lacks power. Next year
all of that is changing as Cadillac is introducing a "V"
Performance Series as shown in the sketch below.
CTS V Series due out in 2004
that's it for this week....
