    This Car Guy’s Thoughts On The Death of @RealPaulWalker #RIPPaulWalker 

    Fast Furious

    Paul Walker and Vin Diesel from the Fast and Furious

    I was young and stupid once and know that so many things can go wrong with screwing around on the street. If anything good comes from Paul Walker’s accident for his fans, auto enthusiasts, and the motorsports, auto aftermarket, and performance industry, I hope it’s that people keep it off the street and realize the importance of supporting the safer environment of race tracks nationwide instead of trying to shut them down.

    Bad Luck Hootsuite Hacked 

    Bad Luck Brian

    I’ve been using Hootsuite for a few years now and until today I have absolutely loved it. It has beaten out TweetDeck, and a slew of other promising social media tools to be my Go To social media tool online and on my phone and tablet. With Sprout Social being my Go To for pretty executive reporting. I’ve had no major problems or complaints regarding Hootsuite ever. Well that changed tonight when my account got hacked and spewed spam links to my 20+ personal and professional accounts. I quickly deleted all instances of spam links, changed passwords all over the place, and turned to Twitter, Facebook and Google for answers, to apologize to those offended, and to see if anyone else has had this happen.

    It turns out that there has been a lot of hacked Hootsuite accounts this week and plenty of people making noise about it. But my problem comes from there not being a peep about it from the official twitter accounts or the Hootsuite blog. Of course I don’t know what has happened yet to cause my account to be compromised and in the meantime I have changed every password I can and have disconnected every social media account from my Hootsuite pro account until further notice.  Not too long ago Hootsuite employed the annoying CAPTCHA system before you could login to your account. And my faith in them was bolstered by the recent announcement of $165 Million in new VC funding. 

    I understand these things happen and I’m a forgiving guy. But just let me know what is going on please?!

    But now after spending about 2 hours cleaning up this mess and explaining to angry clients what has happened, I don’t have the same enthusiasm. In fact I’m just really annoyed on a Sunday evening. Any other insight into this is welcomed in the comments below

    UPDATE! I got hit today with this wonderfully ironic promoted tweet:


    Here are some other Tweets about the Hootsuite Hacking of late:

    The HammerHead equipped Detroit Speed One Lap of America Camaro

    My Father and I would like to thank Kyle Tucker, Ryan Mathews, Stacy Tucker and the entire Detroit Speed Inc. team for choosing our HammerHead IRS Differential Housing for their all out assault on one of the most grueling and brutal mechanical and physical contests in American Motorsports: The Brock Yates’ One Lap of America. “One Lap” to the uninitiated consists of  20 individual racing events at race tracks across the country over the course of 7 days and 3000+ miles. The car must be driven from track to track with two co-drivers and no support vehicles other than the tools and parts they could carry in a small trailer behind the race vehicle.

    The Car started as a stock 2013 SS Camaro and was converted into an all out street legal race car over 8 weeks. The full build and journey can be seen here: http://detroitspeed.com/speednews/OLOA-2013/OLOA-2013-pg-1.html

    My St. Patrick’s Day Dinner A Couple Weeks Late 

    My St. Patrick's Day Dinner A Couple Weeks Late
    Posted by Instagrate to WordPress

    I was on the road a ton recently so I did not get the chance to celebrate St. Patrick’s day as I normally do. So I did so tonight. My grandfather George Keefe I believe was 100% Irish which should make me at least 1/4 Irish. I have the pale complexion and reddish blonde hair to prove it. So I do like to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day complete with Corned Beef and Cabbage, Guiness or a good Red Irish Ale (Conway’s from Great Lakes Brewing Company is my pick).

    Historians tell us that corned beef and cabbage is a dish that Irish American immigrants created using Corned Beef procured from Jewish neighbors in New York City as a substitute for traditional Irish Bacon. So I have tried a lot of corned beef and cabbage in my time, and almost all of it is terrible. Which is why people only eat it once a year, outside of a sandwich or hash. But I found one recipe from a friend’s family that is my all time favorite. It’s even so good I don’t just make it on St. Patrick’s Day.

    Orange Glazed Corned Beef

    1 Flat Cut Corned Beef Brisket (3-4lbs)
    Prepare according to package
    (for this recipe I prefer to not include the spice packet but it’s up to you.)

    1 cup of orange juice (fresh squeezed is best)
    Zest of 1 orange
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    1 teaspoon corn starch
    1/2 stick salted butter

    To make sauce:

    In small pan, simmer orange juice, zest, brown sugar, and  corn starch. Get the mixture bubbling. Stir continuously to avoid sticking, burning or  overflowing. Once the sauce is reduced to a syrup like consistency, remove from heat, add butter and stir/whisk till melted and combined.

    Note: Prepare the sauce just before the brisket comes out of the boiling water.

    Final stage:

    Remove brisket from water, trim excess fat and place into foil lined 13×9 glass bakeware or cookie sheet. Glaze with the sauce  (reserve a little to top off your meat and traditional boiled vegetables if you like) Finish by baking in the oven at 350 for 20-30  minutes until the glaze forms a nice crust. Let rest for 10-15 minutes and slice (against the grain).
