Ever watch Fast Lane Daily? & Reading on the 'throne'..

Just in case my previous posts have not satiated your search for knowledge in respect to my private life, here's another tidbit: to say it in the most polite way possible... i am the quintessential demographic for books like Uncle John's Bathroom Reader. ...'nuff said.

This brings me to my relatively recent purchase of the very cool and ultimately very practical Apple iPhone as a gift to my wife on her birthday. To the chagrin of my better-half I sometimes smuggle the iPhone to accompany me in my ... 'brain storming' sessions. Which is great since YouTube is one of the built in functionalities of this little gadget.

Which finally brings me to a little find called Fast Lane Daily (well, if you can call a YouTube channel with over 13,000 subscribers a 'find'. Also available on iTunes, Veoh, Tivo, etc.). It's a fast little 5 minute daily take on what's happening in the world of cars. They have great videos with some interesting personalities in a well done, informative, neatly packaged production. Obviously they also have a website which includes a blog.

The production company Next New Networks creates a whole whack of other similar episodic type videos as well, all based on different subject matter. Check out their website to see if they have anything you might be interested in.

Personally I haven't even looked yet. But if i do find more interesting stuff... I may actually have to buy my own iPhone.

(come to think of it... my wife will probably want the new .. un-soiled iPhone)

  • Yep, that phone has been flagged, for sure.

  • it's like my wife reads my blog (which she doesn't). just the other day she forbid me to take the iPhone into the bathroom anymore.
    ....supposedly it's 'gross' ..or something like that..

  • you refuse to let a magazine/book which has accompanied a "brainstorming session" leave the bathroom, but you take in and bring back out the iphone?!? That's odd to say the very least...

  • brainstorming devices such as magazines that live in the brainstorming room never move. as who knows what happens behind closed doors. the iphone is just a visitor that never leaves my sight.

    badges? you don't got no stinking badges!
