First it's rocks and minerals and shit. Then man has an idea - his idea involves creating something but the materials he requires to make his idea a reality do not exist. The rocks and minerals and shit are manipulated and melted and refined by man and much thinking is employed and the resulting product is crafted and the idea is a reality and the world is a different place because the luxury item that man has created is new and shiny and does things. Then man has new ideas and the old luxury item is forgotten and retired and knackered without very much thinking at all. Then Martin Horspool discovers the forgotten luxury item and has an idea. He carefully disassembles and rearanges the retired luxury item and creates something that is the materialisation of what was in his head and it is good and it makes other mens heads explode with excitement joy. Watch this now.

Just got some pics from Kiwi Kev of fellow Scrounger Chris Piaggi's recent trip to the states.
After a week of "actual" scrounging Chris was ready for a trip to the shipping company.

Yep - chopper show this Saturday at 1pm 331 New North Rd Kingsland Auckland. Hot Rods and muscle cars welcome too. It's FREE! Trophies for best brit, best american, best cage, best tattoos, best project, hottest witch and best chopper. Check out the "Best Trophy" Sid accidently made. This is what happens when you make trophies when you're pissed! Then of course there's Jame's effort - spelled tattoo wrong and had to try and fit in an extra letter. Oh well. Email on the address below if you need any info - this is your chance to get that project out of the garage or fire up the old beast that hasn't seen the daylight for a while. Drag it out and come hang out. We got three bands playing too - Somebody's Sons, Dirty Sweet and Hot Grease. We have a very limited number of Born Too Late T shirts + OnePercent shirts too. No there wont be any fucking eftpos.

She's all fuckin' go round here I can tell you! We got a bunch done on the weekend - here's a brief roundup.
Head Like A Hole Album is out TODAY so Andrew spent Friday doing press for that. Go buy Blood Will Out NOW! I took the T Bucket out to the testing station and got the vin number on the chassis and had a very cool drive on a beautiful winters day and while I was there saw this sweet 56 BMW. The Earl fork blows my mind. Sunday we did a photoshoot at Salvation Kitchen cafe with the Scroungers car club for a feature we're running in issue 5 on the 10th anniversary. Another beautiful and chilly afternoon. Album release party tonight so we're heading off there now - for the middle of winter there's plenty on!
