2015 Audi RS6 Avant Review
Even in perfect weather, the Phillip Island Grand Prix circuit is too confined for our healthily optioned test car's impossibly long legs. An optional and arguably essential Dynamic Package, at $4900, adds dynamic steering and revised suspension with ...

Coney Island Knock Off
If his grandfather had shown even a little ingenuity instead of just sleeping on top of the all that money, Nachmann now wouldn't be balancing in his knock-off running shoes on the edge of a Coney Island rooftop, feeling the crenellated tiling through ...

What Was Your Favourite Gig Of 2013? NME Writers Share Theirs
Just for the record, one of mine was seeing Missouri punks Radkey in a cramped pub in Camden, north London in the Autumn – there was so much heat in the room the posters were peeling off the wall, I couldn't see a thing and I left with more beer in my ...

Launching the freshly updated and face-lifted version of the world’s quickest series production wagon, the 2015 RS6 Avant , at Australia’s fastest permanent race circuit, Phillip Island, is manna from petrolhead heaven. Horizontal rain and near-Arctic 60km/h crosswinds are hardly ideal for a car ferocious enough to nudge its 250km/h speed limiter on Phillip Island’s front straight well before it runs out of available hot mix. Even at slightly more sombre terminal velocity, lap one, I’ll happily outlay a chunk of the RS6 Avant’s $229,500 entry price to be anywhere but hard on the optional ($20,940) ceramic brakes, 2. 1 tonnes of family-friendly Audi squirming around on... Even in perfect weather, the Phillip Island Grand Prix circuit is too confined for our healthily optioned test car’s impossibly long legs. An optional and arguably essential Dynamic Package, at $4900, adds dynamic steering and revised suspension with Dynamic Ride Control to sharpen RS6 Avant’s dynamic fringes, while lifting top speed to 280km/h. However, the Dynamic Package Plus as fitted to our steed adds those massive 420mm ceramic front anchors and lifts terminal velocity further to a frankly unusable – locally, at least – 305km/h.
It opens at 7, but my all-too-kind date — who set an alarm to join me, with only breakfast tacos and dubious company to show for it — and I are the only people inside The Goat until just past 8, when a middle-aged couple takes the stools down the... Being at a bar this early is less like being at a bar and more like watching people work while you sit on your ass drinking. But showing up this early gives a peek at its inner workings, the things you don't notice when you're taking a shot of courage before the karaoke host calls your name: the rattle of quarters in a coin-counting machine as a coin-op employee tallies... the bar manager across the table, doing paperwork of his own. the endless swish of the broom as a worker seems determined to take as long as possible sweeping the floor. The lack of urgency is a stark contrast to the hurried whatcanIgetcha you're used to. The bartender, Jeremy, in his ponytail and Duck Dynasty T-shirt, says it usually doesn't pick up until about 10 on weekdays. Weekend mornings will bring in 7 a. m. customers still keeping the party going from the night before, but during the week the only early drinkers are Baylor workers coming off night shifts and an ex-Marine whose stories Jeremy never tires of. It's...
Nachmann’s grandfather used to tell him a story about the four days one October when he slept on boxes of gold. It had been during the Spanish Civil War when both the prime minister and the finance minister were convinced the only way to keep Spain’s vast gold reserve safe was to ship the treasure to Russia. Durutti, the anarchist, planned a raid but was talked out of it. From there the gold was loaded onto a gray ship said to weigh four thousand tons, manned by sixty sailors who worked all day and by night slept on the boxes of Louis d’or coins,... Nachmann’s grandfather was one of the sixty. Nonetheless, upon its arrival, Stalin held a banquet at which he said, “The Spaniards will never see their gold again, just as one cannot see one’s own ears. By the time Nachmann was born, the youngest of many grandchildren, his grandfather was very old and had retired to a part of the city far from the docks. He was remembered as a small man who kept his hat on at all times, even in the house, said the word pesetas with an Odessa accent, and at some point after the Bay of Pigs Invasion, changed his name from Nischtmann, to Nachmann. Nischt, nothing, a reasonable name if you can make yourself invisible, he had said, but this was not a family skill, as proven many times over. The two stolen boxes of gold were never found intact.

Large Wooden Wall Clock, Blue
I tried several brand new batteries, and the second hand works as long as the clock is lying flat on the table, but it would not move when we hung it on the wall. I really wanted this clock; it is the perfect size, style, and color for my kitchen.
