About

Let’s face it, you don’t own a magazine cover car, but don’t worry about it, we don’t either so we know how you feel. Mediocre Motoring is a group of guys who love cars, beer, video games, women and everything else that is awesome in this world. However, in our love for all of these things, we are experts at not a single one. We’re basically as average as the rest of the average population and that’s where we pull our name and inspiration. There are so many sites and magazines out there that show the top 2% of the cars out there and the regular jerks like us that make up the rest of the 86% (screw the bottom 2% they’re morons) will never have cars that are up to that level. It’s not that we’re not smart enough, but likely the majority of us have other things going on in our lives that prevent us from being super awesome sauce. Jobs, significant others, siblings, debilitating venereal diseases, you know…the normal stuff.

 

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m tired of seeing show cars that were base cost of $30k and then have $80k worth of parts and labor put into them. That isn’t real life, that’s the dream world of what we all aspire to accidentally join. Time to wake up and realize that you’re as average as statistically possible and there’s nothing you can do about it. Embrace it, baby. Live happily in your mundane existence. Come to us for comfort and camaraderie and a fun little way to see how the rest of us sheep live. We’ll show you the project cars that we’re working on, take some average quality pictures of some local car shows that we go to, and talk about things that we like.  Sound like a plan? Good. Welcome to Mediocre Motoring!

    I don’t get it. You mention the top 2%, the bottom 2%, 86% in the middle, but what about the 10% left over? Is it on the floor in Alex’s garage or something?

      Statistical noise, obviously. Some data is to be sacrificed for numerical efficiency.

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
