Rule # 1: I don't always like following rules. This web site is uncensored. Sometimes I just want to test whether or not we still have freedom of speech in this country. If you want streamlined content that is politically correct, watch network TV. Too much political correctness is bad for you.
Rule #2: Cherrycheesecake.com is here,
because it is here. It's the kind of web site that you go to when you're bored and have nothing better to do.
ONLY YOU CAN MAKE YOUR ENGINE LAST A REDICULOUSLY LONG TIME!
Don't just settle for any synthetic motor oil, buy the the brand which out performs them all. Your motorcycle, car, truck... all your engines are counting on you. Not just for motorcycles! Visit...
December 2011 Major overhaul completed. The Tomb Raider section and other photo galleries are back with a vengeance. I've decided to really push the envelope into the the not safe for work arena.
Cherry Cheesecake girls are a new feature on the site. The word "Cheesecake" is Olde Tyme slang for pinup modeling, so I thought it would be cool to have some girl photos on the site. Naturally, one of you ladies is going to point out the need for fair play, so yes, now there are some photos of dudes too, but not too many.
The Songs Hall of Fame has been replaced with me rambling about hard rock and heavy metal. The Tick TV show is relocated to the STUFF section. All that ought to keep you busy for a few hours.

BLAH BLAH BLAH
I'm just a stupid biker but unlike the elected officials who run this country, at least I know why the economy sucks. It's simple. When it cost's me $500.00 per month in gas to go to work everyday, I'm not going to have as much money left over to go out and spend money of all the stuff that helps the economy be healthy. It's really no more complicated than that. The world's economy revolves around people in the United States buying lots of stuff. So lower the price of gas in the United States and not only will us Americans go out and buy stuff, most of what we buy will be made in other countries and everyone will be happy.
The older I get, the more I realize how screwed up are things in this world. For example, I know enough about the US Constitution to know that We The People are supposed to be able to present the government with grievances if We The People don't like what the government is doing. That is what we the people are supposed to do and that is all part of living in a free country and helping to ensure that it remains a free country.
However, these days, if the government breaks the law, ignores the constitution, imposes unbearable taxes upon the people, wastes taxpayer dollars, conducts reckless financial practices which put the country's financial system at risk of complete collapse and anyone, or any group of people get together to dare complain about such corruption in their government, those individuals are berated and called all manner of harsh names like, traitor, unAmerican, terrorist or teabagger. Furthermore, all those name callers wallow in blissful denial that such corruption even exists in spite of these things happening right in front of their eyes. In the United States, it doesn't get much more screwed up than that.
Oh, wait. It does get worse. Now we've got these brain dead idiots who are part of the new Occupy Protest movement. Here's where I'm coming from... "Free" handouts from the government aren't actually free. Whenever the government gives you something for "free", what that actually means is that someone else paid for it instead of you. And by someone else, I mean that the government forcefully took money out of someone else's wages against their will in order to then turn around and give you that money for "free". So today, people actually think that having a government give them stuff for "free" is right and normal. No, it's not right and it's not normal. To live in a free country means that you have the OPPORTUNITY to do something constructive with your life and work the job of your own choice which makes you happy. A free country does NOT mean that the government there will just give you stuff for "free". So today, these Occupy protestors are pissed off that some people have a lot of money while they themselves don't have much money at all and feel that those "rich people" should give away their extra money to the Occupy people so that everyone has the same amount of money.
Telegram for Occupy protestor people... If you want to have more money, WORK HARDER than you are right now. Many so-called rich people got that way by working their asses off while all you lazy, worthless excuses for human beings do nothing but sit around waiting for Uncle Sam to give you free stuff. The bible that I read once in a while says that if a man doesn't work, he doesn't eat. Period. I'm a drummer. Lars Ulrich is a drummer. I'm a broke SOB while Lars Ulrich is a rich SOB. I wish I was as wealthy as Lars Ulrich. Well Lars Ulrich worked a hell of a lot harder to gain his wealth than I have ever worked in my life. I have the opportunity to work as hard as he has but I'm just not that willing to work that hard. Therefore, I know I have nothing to complain about. My being broke is largely (see note about the price of gas above) my own fault. So I'm okay with Lars Ulrich being a rich SOB and I'm not going to demand that he give me any of his money like those brain dead Occupy protestors would do.
And now it's time for a picture of Lindsay Lohan in a bikini.
10 years ago while our country was actively being attacked and all the details weren't clearly known, I witnessed unarmed Americans, who never thought they would ever need a gun, scrambling into the local (metro Washington DC area) gun stores to a buy gun. I went scrambling onto the same stores simply to buy more ammo.
NICKELBACK & HINDER at Nissan Pavilion
Have you ever had the idea that really big rock bands who do a lot of touring all over the world, ever find themselves playing places they've never heard of? So, I saw Nickelback for the third or fourth time recently. Normally I see them out at Merriweather Post Pavilion near Baltimore, MD. But much to my delight, they actually did a show right down the street from where I live at a place called Nissan Pavilion I'll get right to the funny part... Chad (their frontman) clearly had no idea that he was actually playing a show in the greater metropolitian Washington DC area. Likewise with the frontman for HINDER who toured with them. They kept on greeting the crowd with stuff like, "Hello Bristow Virginia!!!" or "Hey Bristow, how are you doing tonight? Wooooo!" This is obviously because the postal address for the Nissan Pavillion is Bristow Virginia. But no one here actually says Bristow. This is because Bristow was the name of a little tiny spot of land the size of one of Chad's house. That spot of land had a little tiny one room post office about the size of one of Chad's walk-in closets. Across the street was a general store. That's it.That was Bristow. Both structures are still there today, abandoned, because there is nothing there and the new post office is a reasonable distance away. The US Postal Service then named the entire region of wide open nothingness "Bristow" so that anyone who builds something within that wide open area, will get to use the new zip code that they made up for that area, kinda like the Nissan Pivillion which is in the middle of that nothingness. But, everyone in this county will tell you that they live in either "Northern Virginia" or the Metro DC area if asked by an outsider.So, the show kinda sucked because Chad thought he was playing to crowd of Hillbillies or something instead of the Nation's capital and one of the biggest Heavy Metal fan bases in the United States. Chad did a lot of fuckin' off during the show and even screwed up the lyrics to the song "I Wanna Be a Rock Star". Nissan Pavillion is actually close enough to receive Baltimore's rock radio station, "98 Rock", which is the same station where years ago, Chad and the band went to the station to kick Micky's ass for seemingly bad talkinn Nickelback, not realizing that Micky and Amelia try to insert comedy into their show. So, if you are a rich rockstar and you want to sound like an idiot in front of the nation's capital, keep on yelling "Wooo Hoo! Bristow! How you doin' tonight?!" But at least my friend Carolyn still wants to do every unmentionable thing possible to Chad from Nickelback as well as the lead singer for Hinder, so I guess it doesn't totally suck for them.
The GEICO GECKO
The Geico Gecko started out with an Austraillian accent and was rather respectable, but then changed to a ghetto version of a Brittish accent. Not very impressive and those idiots at Geico Headquarters (also right down the road) have no idea that of all the Brittish accents they could have chosen, they picked a ghetto accent instead of a more refined, cultured accent. How embarrassing for them.
DEMOCRATS and President OBAMA
For some reason, the Democrats just can't understand why so many people are outraged at the socialist policies that they have decided are best for all the little peasant people who live in this country. It's not like we American's have fought a lot of wars to achieve that thing called "Freedom" specifically to prevent things like the Democrats are proposing from actually happenning to the United States. And another thing... just because a Democrat was elected President, doesn't mean that the people who voted for him agree with every one of his policies. But the Dems have this attitude of "This is what the people wanted us to do". Hardly. Margret Thatcher once said, The problem with Socializm is that you eventually run out of other people's money".
It's real simple people... No Bees, No Food! The USA has lost countless billions of bees to some unknown cause. If you find a bee hive in your residential area, don't kill it. Use real smoke to try and motivate the bees to go somewhere else. If the bees go, there will be no one here to care about global warming.
DRIVERS WITH CELL PHONES For the love of God, if you are going to talk on a cell phone while driving, move over to the right lane so that others can go around you, and don't stop turning your head from side to side, checking your mirriors while you talk so that you can maintain a situational awareness of the road!!!! In case you didn't know, the left lane is for faster traffic! If you want to go exactly the speed limit or slower, do it in the right lang!!! I get so pissed off to see someone driving slow, running right along someone else who is going slow and the both of you causing a huge backup of traffic behind you because you aren't turning your head while driving to notice that you are part of a rolling road block. Don't pace other drivers... Stagger your position on the road so others can get around you. I will lay on my truck horn and interrupt your cell phone call if I see you blocking traffic. Your head will actually turn while talking on a cell phone. Try it. Especially when there are motorcycles on the road. Watch out for motorcyclists and don't tailgate them either!
OMG! You can now watch TV right here at CherryCheesecake.com! How freekin' cool is that. I just added season 1 of The Tick. Not the cartoon version that I originally wanted to add but a series featuring live action. I had known about the cartoon version for many years and had never heard of the live action series until just a little while ago. Having seen the new live action series, I must say that I prefer the live action to the cartoon version. In time, I will be adding a whole bunch of TV shows to the site so be sure to tell your friends and check back for updates.
So, maybe the new President will depart from his extensive voting record while he is in office and not actually separate the American people from the freedom they claim to hold so dear. Yea, it's possible... or at least that is what I keep telling myself. Time will tell. But if I don't find a freekin' job soon, I won't care either way.
I wonder if Lindsay Lohan ever figured out that she got suckered recently. You see... she would never admit publicly that she decided to try batting for the home team for a while. Despite all the reports from those who were close enough to her to know what was going on, she continued to deny publicly that she had started dating another chick. Well, eventually someone spread a rumor that she and "what's her name" had broken up and throngs of reporters got in her face to ask her if it was true. She adamantly shot down the rumor and denied that she and "what's her name" broke up. Bingo! She just admitted publicly that she was in fact dating a chick. The whole rumor was clearly just a scam to trick her into admitting to her dating activities.
I went to see Metallica in concert for their Death Magnetic tour. Awesome show! I have also learned recently that not everyone was very excited about their last record (from 7 years ago) called St. Anger. What the hell is wrong with you people? That was a great album! One of my favorite songs is the very first track and bears the line that Kirk came up with, "My life style, determines my death style." That song kicks ass! And who cares that there are no guitar solos on the record? They decided not to do any solos. BFD! And who cares that the drums sound funny? They don't sound funny. There is only one drum that sounds different and that is the snare drum where Lars simply disengaged the snares to you can't hear them. The whole sound of the record is supposed to convey a feeling of not being comfortable or uneasiness. Just enjoy the record for what it is and not what you think it should be.
I have been doing some thinking lately and I think that is a good time too let go of my hostilities toward Metallica. I have gone on record to say that I have liked every record that Metallica has ever released. I have never taken sides with either the "Old Metallica" fans or the "new Metallica" fans. I have liked all of their stuff as it has changed over the years. But as a paying customer, I felt rather pissed off at the comments issued by my fellow drummer Lars over the whole Napster thing. Maybe he over-reacted over the whole file sharing thing, or maybe he had a valid arguement but just handled it wrong, I don't know. Maybe I handled it all wrong too from my perspective.
For me, I used Napster to preview CDs before I deemed them worthy of my hard earned money. I am not just a music fan but I am also a musician as well. I know good and well that MP3s don't have anywhere near as good of a quality as a real, store bought CD will have. I am also pretty sure that I don't want to go out and buy a CD that sucks. (If 1 million people go out and buy a CD because there was a lot of really good commercials for it and then the CD turns out to suck, the band and the record producers will think that the people really like the band and give then a bunch of free MTV music awards, simply because so many CDs were sold... when in fact, everyone thinks they suck.) If I go out to buy a CD, I really want to feel confident that I am going to like the CD before I buy it. The point here is that I used Napster and I also bought CDs. Lots of them!
So, the way I reacted to Lars' attack on Napster and their users was to stop buying Metallica stuff. A practice that continued for years... up unto recent months. That doesn't mean that I didn't get my hands on new Metallica stuff, it only means that none of my money was going into the band's pockets any more. St. Anger was an awesome record and I liked the DVD stuff that went with it. I didn't pay for it... someone else bought it, hated it and gave it to me, and ths, I was able to maintain my boycott of the band's products. Friends have also given me Metallica products as gifts. Again, not my money going into the band's pockets.
But I have been doing some thinking lately and I know how I am when someone steals (uses without permission) any of my art that I produce, (I go absolutely ballistic!) and I thought, maybe Lars was only doing exactly the same thing that I would have done. (I've stuck my foot in my mouth before too.)
So anyway, (not that I have ever knowingly communicated with anyone in Metallica before today) but I have decided to put an official end to hostilities toward Metallica. I recently made a Metallica purchase with my own money. Yep, the very day that Death Magnetic was released, I bought two copies for myself. I bought one CD and I also bought one of the vinyl LP record album versions of Death Magnetic as well.
So that's it. I'm declaring my feud with Metallica to be over.
Happy Holidays everyone!
Geez! Where do I start? Well, here goes...
In case you missed it, someone who is perceived to be the second most anti-gun person in the United States (next to Hillary Clinton) has been elected President of the United States and the big "Gun-Grab, Tug-of-War has begun." Gun owners (or soon to be gun owners) are scrambling to buy guns while they still can, for fear that Barack Obama and the wholy Democratic party run dictatorship of the United States will remove their ability to do so in the future. Why do Americans always wait till the last minute to do anything? Gun control is really about people control. It really is that simple.
I discovered Craigslist recently. I know it's been around forever but I never took a good look at it or actually tried to use it until just recently. Man! How cool is that sight! Over the past few months, I have been a Craigslist fiend! But, that being said, I do have a few rants to get off my chest.
1.) If you DON'T HAVE A TITLE for the trailer, boat, vehicle or whatever thing you want to sell, IT IS STOLEN. Don't post it. I am sick and tired of sifting through the want ads looking for a trailer and seeing ads saying "I don't have a title but I'll provide you a bill of sale and you can get a title". If it is so freekin' easy to get a title, then you do it! If you don't have a title, the DMV will assume it is stolen and therefore I will assume it is stolen and I don't want to be stuck with buying something that can't be titled and utilized for the intent for which it was purchased. Quit cluttering up the want ads with your stolen junk!
2.) If you aren't going to post a photo with your ad, why bother? You are wasting both of our time. I don't care if it a free item or not. I don't care if it is a personal ad or whatever it is you are trying to offer. If you don't post a picture, you aren't serious about your ad. Quit cluttering up CL with ads you are not serious about. If you want me to haul away your couch for free, you had better post a picture of it because I am not driving across the metro area in my massive truck without a darn good reason. Your competition (for whatever type of ad) is posting some photos with their ad so if you want to be taken seriously, post some freekin' photos!
3.) Post a damn description of your whatever it is that you are offering in an ad! Have the foresight to anticipate the questions I am going to ask you and post that in your description! If you are selling a truck cap, tell me the length and width of the cap and what truck it was last fitted to. If you are selling an Epiphone guitar, don't call it a Gibson in the main description. If you are selling an electric guitar, post the serial number so I can research the year it was made so I don't have to ask you for this information. If it is a "factory second", say so right up front.
4.) Don't use the words "MUST SELL" or "Or Best Offer (OBO)" if you are not willing to accept an offer which is far less then book value for whatever you are offering. I don't give a rat's ass how fast YOU want to sell it. If you want to convince me you are a motivated seller, cut the price in half and then I will believe you!
ps Using words like "RARE" or "Hard To Find" tells me that you are going to over-inflate the price of what is an probably a very common item. If it is rare, or hard to find, I will already know that and you don't need to tell me.
Oh yea... HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!
"Too Much Power" is the term I have in mind at the moment. It would be extrordinarilly bad for the United States, or any contry for that matter, if one political party controlled everything. When other countries do that, it is called a dictatorship. Right now, the Democrats control Congress. (They whined that the Republicans wouldn't let them do anything and now that they are in charge, they aren't doing anything at all. It seems that they just wanted to be in charge but nothing more.) If a Democrat is elected as President this time around, there would be no restraint, no safety net in place to prevent the Democrats from ruining this country and removing your freedoms as an American citizen in the process. Too much power in one place leads to corruption. It always does. There was a day when everybody knew that and would always vote for whatever party needed to be elected in order to keep things balanced. Our forefathers when founding this country knew that the structure of the country needed to be set up in a way to have all the powers distributed broadly to minimize this danger of having too much power all in one place. So whether you like him or not, you need to vote for McCain for President. Read more here.
This world is no more civilized today than it was a thousand years ago and the mass media is not helping in the slightest. If it isn't blatantly obvious to you that the evening news and the daily comedy news programs are deliberately trying to brainwash you with a Liberal agenda then you really need to wake up and pay attention. There is no war in Iraq. The "war" was over very quickly and what has been taking place for the last number of years is a tremendously positive nation building operation that is providing a lot of hope for the people of Iraq and their future while women beating, brainwashed religious extremists (that we call insurgents) try to prevent that from happening. If you laughed out loud just now, you need to watch the Military Chanel documentaries on the current job our military people are doing overseas non-stop for the next 30 days and nothing else.
NASCAR: Would someone from Nascar please contact me and explain to me why I don't see many of the drivers or race team members placing their hand over their heart during the singing of the national anthem? Do they have some sort of aversion to public displays of respect to their country? I am reminded of a page on this site that has been up and running for a long time. If you are new here, you should check it out.
Q. What is better than a car that runs on E-85 Ethanol?
A. One that runs on AIR.How freekin' cool would that be?
I also read recently that a lot of Do-It-Yourselfers aren't waiting for Detroit to make electric cars and they are buying kits to convert existing cars over to run on cheap electricity. I think the most popular (professionally made) electric car so far is the Tesla. For better gas mileage, I think my next vehicle will have two wheels instead of four. But I am torn between the Star Motorcycles, Raider and the Harley Davidson Fat Bob.
Oh yea... this guy emails me because he wants me to link him on this site. Well it turns out that the guy steals photos from other people's web sites and re-posts them on his own web site and then tries to make money from referrals to other web sites. And wouldn't you know it... one of the stolen photos just happens to be one of my copyrighted photos! So what do you think I told the guy? I told him to fuck off!
Well, it's starting already. If there was ever any doubt that the mass media is run with an agressive Liberal Democrat agenda, let that boubt be removed from your mind after seeing this artical. The Supreme Court of the United States rendered an opinion recently (DC vs Heller) stating (among other things) that individual citizens have the right to own and carry guns for their personal protection and the Liberals are absolutely pissed off. SO now, similar to a childish temper tantrum, the Associated Press is trying to portray guns in the most negative light possible in order to stir up some public outrage and sway public opinion by implying that owning a gun is going to make you want to kill yourself. What absolute, unadulterated hogwash!
At least 2 Million people each year use a firearm in self defense and the remaining vast majority of the over 80 million gun owners in America enjoy their firearms responsibly. Do these people look like they are depressed or do they look like they are enjoying life? If the Liberal Democrats don't like freedom, there are hundreds of other countries where they can go live. Gun control is really about people control.
GAS PRICES... I cut back on my driving when gas reached $1.50/Gallon and now it's $4.00/Gallon and now the government is just starting to wonder if consumers are going to start cutting back on driving, vacation travel and buying stuff. MESSAGE TO WASHINGTON... IT ALREADY HAPPENNED AND YOU MISSED IT! I can't speak for the rest of the world but Americans like buying stuff and as necessitity is the mother of invention, I think that fuel prices are getting getting Americans motivated enough to invent a way to stop using petrolium products for automotive fuel. Hydrogen, E-85 Ethanol Fuel or electricity. Whatever works, I think Americans will make it happen so that they can continue to buy neat stuff. I've been buying a lot of E85 fuel for my 2008 Flex Fuel Ford F-150.
