WACKY WACKY NEIGHBORHOOD CAR BOMB HiJiNX..
my little street used to be such a quiet neighborhood.. really, nothing EVER happened here.. at least nothing I wuz ever home or awake for.. but, yesireeeebob.. times they aaare a changin'..
you may remember the wacky police siege we had just down the road around Xmas / New Years?.. musician threatening to kill himself in the block of flats at the other end of my street? camera crews, STAR force cops.. yada yada..
well, now it looks like we have a sequel..
here I wuz.. rather innocently watching that lesbian TV show - "The L Word" (and no, there's no need to explain THIS ONE.. c'mon.. they're lesbians.. they're freakishingly hot.. and.. er.. where wuz I?) so.. watching the tv.. hazing out've focus into a dribbling potato state.. and I hear this idiotic car with it's horn stuck on sutain blaring away, waaay off in the distance.. "hooooooooooooooooooooooo.o.o.o.o.o.nk"..
I'd heard this same sorta thing a few nights ago.. much louder, driving past me window.. at some retarded hour like 1AM..
I usually take no notice of this sorta shit.. I mean, dickheads blaring car horns past me house? doing loud donuts on the road? this is more or less background radiation.. (and it used to be such a QUIET neigborhood)
so.. I hear this car horn.. think to meself.. "not again!??"
I ignore it..
it's STILL blaring..
so.. curiousity tweaked.. I go for a little wander thru me house towards the door to the driveway.. peering out've the windows on the way.. and I spot this reflection in one of the houses opposite mine.. an image of something burning in one of the windows..
at this point, I forget the car horn.. it's gone already to who knows where..
sure enough.. rushing outside me house.. I spot a car, parked just OUTSIDE me house / opposite my driveway on the otherside of a very small street.. in a huge exploding fireball..
A FUCKING CAR BOMB OUTSIDE ME HOUSE!!?? WOT DA FuuuUUUK?
oh, sure.. I know wot a lot of you are thinkin'.. "yeah yeah.. this sorta shit happens in ma hood AAAALL the damn time.. 3 murders last week, that gas explosion, all those cult members with the kool aid committing suicide.. and when those US troops invaded?.. wahooooo!"
but, y'see.. it used to be such a NON-EVENT street here..
first the wacky police siege.. and now THIS??
daaamn.. it's kinda fucked up.. but, also..
I'm thinkin'.. "whoa.. coooooooooooooooooool :) "
so.. calling 000.. (realising about 3 other houses also called), I walk outside to take a better look.. see the roaring car inferno trying to catch alight the trees and surrounding brush fence, threatening to take a house down with it.. the house JUST OPPOSITE WHERE I FUCKIN' LIVE!!!! giving it a very WIDE berth.. I walk down the street to see my neighbors milling about.. somewhat thankful at this point that the car DIDN'T have a full tank of gas otherwise I'd be the thing burning, rolling around on the grass..
the next few minutes or so wuz spent.. watching like a dumb primate as various bits of the car flared up and exploded.. gas hissing out of various gaps.. and really.. it's quite damn cool watchin' nutty shit like this up close.. almost dangerously close this time.. thinkin'.. "duuuude.. this is AWESOME!".. which, really.. is kinda wrong ain't it? (lets all blame the media again shall we? BAD MEDIA!! BAAAAD MEDIA!! YOU SCREWED UP OUR BRAINS!!!)..
I even took some cool photo's as the fire trucks and cops arrived.. neighbors enjoying the spectacle.. - "hi guys.. looks like we got another one eh?"
I MEAN, WOT THE FUCK!!??
so.. wot's next?
