USAC LAUNCHES NEW MEDIA INITIATIVE

USAC LAUNCHES NEW MEDIA INITIATIVE

Looks like USAC finally got it’s s#*t together. They have launched a subscription service through their “USAC Media Live”. I’ve been waiting for quite a while to be able to watch whole USAC races with out having to travel 500 mile to do so. Hope this work out. I subscribed with out checking out the bandwidth requirement and my DSL is a bit to slow. Oh well. It requires a 2MBs connection or better with the latest Flash player.

Would be nice if they could add multiple feeds eventually to be more along the lines of an actual TV broadcast with an option to switch between feeds. Also an option to download the races for those that don’t have a fast enough connection to enjoy the live feed.

Brion.

Dirt Modeler

Bumped into this site today while checking out ScaleSprints.com.  DirtModeler.com looks to have some very interesting parts available with more on the way. Placed an order so will be looking forward to seeing what the parts are like. Especially like the hubs, can’t wait. thought about taking a stab at casting my own in resin but now there might not be a need to do that.

Rubicon

I know it’s  just TV, but this is was a good show. . Inspired by the suspenseful and high-stakes political whodunits of the 1970s – from The Parallax View to All The Presidents Men – “Rubicon” is a modern-day political conspiracy thriller that taps into the collective paranoia of a post-9/11 era. Executive produced by Henry Bromell (“Homicide: Life on the Street,” “Chicago Hope,” “Brotherhood”) and produced by Warner Horizon Television, “Rubicon” stars James Badge Dale (“The Pacific,” The Departed) and Academy® Award nominee Miranda Richardson (Sleepy Hollow, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire)…The first season was base on a secretive group of corporate leaders carrying out Disaster Capitalism as a way of life. It is well written and acted, the first good series on TV since Homicide: Life on the Street.

It would be nice if it were resurrected. Here is a link to a Fansite for the AMC “Rubicon” TV Show with address to write to AMC.
