Should I have added a “girl owned” hashtag so the fanbois could show what tumblr thirst is all about?
Drive Slow (feat. Paul Wall & GLC) - Kanye West
Paul Wall’s verse on this is legendary.
You’re just making yourself out to be an even bigger asshat. Why can’t you just admit that you were in the wrong?
Where am I wrong?
I said I don’t care about the photo lol. If he wants his photo he can change the source as I said. I couldn’t a give a fuck at all looool. This posts so old its funny
Because, as I said earlier, only the OP can change the sources now…
It’s just kind of a shitty thing to do, especially after being confronted about it. I guess you wouldn’t understand though, since you’ve probably never worked hard on something and then had it taken from you.
Shits changed then since way back when I started on here then as anyone could change the source.
IF, I cropped his watermark. Sat here and said THATS MA PIC I TOOK OF DIS KEWL S13, no shit you’d have the right to complain.
He should be happy its posted online giving him exposure so everyone sees his photo.
I don’t think you understand what I’m trying to say. Yes, people post other people’s photos everywhere on the internet all the time, and no, they don’t always get sourced, it’s all part of the game. However, when you get confronted about it and then act like an entitled shithead - then you’re in the wrong. Get it?
jdmandtherest - Something you should understand is that my photos, for about four years, made my living. I don’t need you for exposure and I’m not about to “thank you,” for that. I didn’t even attack you. I was more or less curious to how you got your hands on it in the first place. It wasn’t until you began acting like a little piss ant that you started pissing people off.
Why? Because I’m not some stance kid on the internet engaging in the circle-jerk of shitty blogs of cars that I will never drive. This is a fact. I live this life well enough to know that if I walk outside and see a shoshinsha sticker, it’s not because some kid is, “JDM TYTE,” it’s because he/she just got their license and I should avoid them. Much like blogs with JDM in the title and entitled attitudes such as yours.
This is tumblr. Free sharing of media is great because as a blog-social media hybrid, it’s the essence of how media goes viral. We’re not always going to know the source of photos taken. If you get a nod from the photographer, show some respect and watch your tone. You could at least do that much and show some semblance of a decent human being. nekotofu has every right to call you out because of your attitude.
Am I going to go through the pain in the ass of contacting tumblr to remove your photo because it has my copyrighted intellectual property on it? No. I don’t have the time or the patience to get my lawyer involved to do so. I could be the petty, vindictive and spiteful but I don’t see the point in doing so. This is more of a personal, life lesson you should take into account. I leave you with this; take the L and learn some humility. You have a lot of growing up to do.
Brandon wants to go driving. Brandon always wants to go driving.
It was supposed to rain tonight but the roads are drying up. I’ve had two glasses of bourbon over the past two hours. Which means I need to eat, hydrate, shower and wait two more hours before I can legally get behind the wheel. Hell, it will be damn near midnight before I’m sharp again.
And I’m not even a lightweight.
Maaaaan. Adult problems. -_-
Side note: it’s better to not drive than get a DUI. Looks like I’ll just walk to Mihama and play Wangan Midnight and Initial D.
Fun facts: I have a good friend who is sponsored by Rota. They’ve never done him wrong. He travels around Asia drifting professionally. He makes more money from sliding than all of the tumblr kids arguing about fake wheels (probably combined with his other business ventures). But if you can afford a BNR34 V Spec, then you should be ashamed of yourself for not putting LMGT4s on it in favor of Rotas.
…I wouldn’t rock Rotas though.
I placed an order for 25 shirts. I haven’t set up an online store although I should. There are a few people who deserve a shirt off of GP. antonioalvendia and atotorakku being two of them. As for local distro, I’ll make sure the entire Takoyama fam gets theirs as well
New Ryukyu Soul logo.
Time to step the sticker game up. Shout out to Zeke for the design.
Hey… I know this guy. Haha
jgz1994 - a single of TE37SLs go for about $600/wheel plus tax. a single Yokohama Advan AD08 is $150. This, of course, is for the specific sizing that I desire. Grand total would be $3000, not including tax, shipping, proper balancing, installation and alignment. I expect to pay closer to $4000 for the whole shebang.
@ginkumo12 - I’m currently at 8J with my SSR Type-C. I do not plan on selling those, just getting them painted and restored to have as a spare set. I’ll likely snag a second set of AD08s for those as well if the tires are up to par. I currently use Federal 595s, which work to my liking in the rain.
This is not a track only setup. Hell, I work every Saturday and haven’t been to the track since I got back to Okinawa. I do, however, go on “spirited drives” on a nightly basis. This is not an exaggeration. Rain or shine. Every. Damn. Day.
The lip/diffuser setup with be from an S203. OEM is preferred unless I find a front lip that hugs the contour lines of the car a bit more.
Full audio is simple. Instead of the stock component speakers, I want coaxial/two-way speakers. A very small sub would be nice, but I’ll pass in favor of not having something in my trunk or extra wiring to worry about. Additionally, I’m looking into a Kenwood, touch screen, head unit with GPS and Bluetooth capability. Something like this.
- TE37 Super Laps (17s, 85J) wrapped in Advan AD08s
- Front lip and rear diffuser
- Full audio upgrade
Mark my words, this will happen soon. Very, very soon.
