Sonic Southgate My quest to camp out at Sonic Southgate for opening day continues, and today I decided to check up on the building progress. After driving to what I pinpointed as the exact location of the future Sonic, I took various photos of the lot including a building closeup and wide shot. I'm guessing late April at this point, since the parking lot hasn't been poured and it looks like utilities aren't even hooked up yet. Couldn't find anything to help find a contact for the company building it, but seeing the sign and actual building definitely got me all hot and bothered.
User Comments for 03-26-2008:
ZOMG! I am so excited about this. After being taunted for years regional commercials we will finally know the goodness of Sonic. I'm in for the first road trip. Gina, of course, believes me to be retarded.
Duane
We all must show up opening day and blog the hell out of this!
Stavos
Duane, if Gina knew how wonderful Sonic was she would not think you are retarded.
Tim
I posted a Sonic grand opening thread on the forums under the special events section. Go discuss.
Tim
OK, why is Sonic so exiting???
Excelcier
Sonic is perty good food, I wish they would open a white hastle here. It has been a long time since ive been hastled, and have had a proper bowel movement.
enorym
Why hasn't there been another update? I'm dying for more news regarding the Sonic that I won't be here for! Also, do you know where they do have Sonic? Phoenix, AZ.
MorlockPrime
Too bad it will be too hot to roll down your window when its 110 plus outside.
r1OT
I guess I'll have to experience it for myself when it opens.
Excelcier
Canadians are not allowed at Sonic. Did you read the sign? "America's Drive-in". However there's a Tim Hortons next door.
Stavos
Ahhh Tim Horton's...15 million retards and growing (15 million and 1 when Excelcier shows up).
MorlockPrime
Since I'm an American... I hate Tim Horton's... since I am indeed an american who will in fact be moving to AMERICA!
Excelcier
Really? Where and when?
Stavos
Probably on the day they disband the INS. Like we'd let canadian trash move into our country.
MorlockPrime
...Actually we do have Canadian trash transported to Michigan and we get money for storing it, guess that's what you get for having a Canadian Governor.
Stavos
Someone's going to have to pay an awful lot for us to store Excelcier in our great land. Perhaps we can deal with him like we should the rest of the trash, send it to the sun....or feed it to hungry immigrants.
MorlockPrime
I was hoping you'd say "hungry Morlocks" but that's not any better then Tim Hortons so I guess Immigrants will do.
Stavos
Morlock's eat (and rape) eloi, they don't have anything to do with Canadians (though some scientists keep trying to prove that Canadians are the retarded step children of the noble Morlocks).
MorlockPrime
They say smart genes skip a generation so Ron's kids should be as sharp as tacks...
Stavos
Too bad they'll still be Canadian. Perhaps they'll be smart enough to finally solve the age old problem of how to get Americans to not think of all Canadians as retards.
MorlockPrime
May 14th!

Easter included a stop at the flatlanders to celebrate the anniversary of the spawn of Melanie and Jaird. I of course sent them an e-card to congratulate them, and loaned out Lisa for some last minute wrapping. Sunday breakfast yielded a jellybean zygote Easter miracle, which Lisa was very excited to witness.
User Comments for 03-23-2008:
I can't believe stavos hasn't commented on this yet. He must be feeling sick. Or he's depressed I'm moving to phoenix. Where its warm and we don't get any of this snow shit.
MorlockPrime
There's just no point anymore since the Morlock is moving. I'm jumping off the building without my glasses so you know i'm serious.
Stavos
Are you going to ebay the Jellybean zygote?
Stavos
I think i know a british guy that might buy it.

Sonic! My obsession with Sonic dates back to when I helped Joseph move down to Florida in 2002. There, for the first time, I sampled the experience and was so excited I had to get a photo with one of the waitresses, who tolerated me quite well. Unfortunately, the closest Sonic to Michigan is over 8 hours away in Indiana, which meant the constant commercials served only to taunt me the past 6 years. My Sonic visits were limited to vacations, that is until today when I learned that Sonic is coming to southgate! I plan to find out the actual opening date in April and camp outside that morning in celebration of the fact that it will soon only be an hour away from me.
User Comments for 03-16-2008:
I remember last year we were speculating whether we should drive the 8 hours to Indiana to try it. I was also going to write a letter to Sonic saying it's not fair that you tease us with these commercials. We have to make this an event!
Stavos
Group outing! I'm in.
Duane
There is plenty of flatland in Ohio to build them aswell.
R1OT
I heard rumors of this. I'm glad someone has confirmed it. I miss the burger on texas toas and the chili cheese tots. The popcorn chicken is good too.
Tim
I got ahold of the lady who wrote the article, she didn't have the date. I'm going to try and find contact info for John Matar or Fred Rafou and keep digging. Once we have a date we can plan the campout!
AtomicInternet
Well played! They only thing missing now is the In-n-Out!
brian
I'm in, Route 44 Cherry Limeaid FTW!
E1
This is awesome!! I can't wait for it! Southgate is close to me I like that too. I first tried Sonic when I visited my sister in Columbia Missouri. I had a regular Sonic Burger and that thing was big! I also loved the fries!
Silvercup
I wish there was a white castle out here in california I'd trade sonic for that any day.
Enorym
Actually, your first visit was in 2001 in Oklahoma. You came down to see me and Gabriel at the end of summer. Sonic is the only reason to stay in OK at the end of July - the good slushies and drinks!

Rank 55 in COD4 After dedicating 46 hours of my life to Call of Duty 4, I finally joined the rest of my friends at the maximum rank of commander. Not a very exciting accomplishment, but at least I have something to show for it. After 250 hours of Battlefield 2142 I'm still 4 ranks away and Frontlines only teases me with screenshots, so it was nice to finally get a warm feeling of accomplishment. With today reaching 60 degrees, I'll soon hopefully be free of my FPS prison.
User Comments for 03-14-2008:
And you're still a virgin! Quite the accomplishments!
MorlockPrime
so what does the circle icon and the 3 guys running, and the percentage mean in FFOW stats?
Stavos
I think it means that you're in a circle jerk with 2 other guys at least 50% of the time.

Rating: 3 - Link to this Article 03-12-2008 Morlock Bumper Fix View Webcam for 03-12-2008 4 COMMENTS
Morlock Bumper Fix Yesterday the Morlock came over for a redneck bumper repair. The technique involves placing a jack under a rear-ended truck bumper and jumping up and down in the cargo bed, forcing the bumper back into it's proper position. In addition to beating their chest and glaring with glowing eyes, jumping menacingly is a specialty of the Morlock, so the repair was expertly executed.
User Comments for 03-12-2008:
So how did the bumper get bent in the first place? Good thing you have a 300lb Morlock near bye some people aren't as lucky.
Stavos
Well if you must know, someone rearended the morlock's sister's truck. Yes Morlock's have siblings, however, whether they are male or female is really irrelevant since Morlocks are hermaphrodites. Thanks for the red neck bumper repair Lloyd.
MorlockPrime
Haha repair!
Enorym
Myron's comments are those of a highly functional retard.

Rating: 3 - Link to this Article 03-11-2008 Myrone the Gnome Surfaces View Webcam for 03-11-2008 4 COMMENTS
After almost 5 years since Myrone the Gnome went missing, it looks like he may have made his way down to South America to scare the local residents. I can't be certain it's my old gnome, but given that this is exactly what his namesake would do if he were a gnome, I have to believe it's a good possibility. If you look closely at the video, you can just barely make out what looks like a phone. If it turns out to be an iPhone, I'll be fully convinced.
User Comments for 03-11-2008:
If you listen really carefully you can hear the local South American kids saying "MYRN" which summons the giant Myrone Gnome immediately. I'm quivering as we speak someone hold me.
Stavos
If Myrone the gnome is in South America, then who the hell is renting out my extra room!
MorlockPrime
STAY OFF MY LAWN YA DAMN GNOME!

WTF that is creepy

Excited to see how my "standards compliant" website looked in Internet Explorer 8, I promptly downloaded it only to discover the new "standards enlightened" browser rendered my navigation menu similar to how I render things into the toilet. Looks like I have to take some of the blame though, since it passed the acid test with flying colors. Rendering aside, the new web slice feature looks promising, sort of like RSS feeds on steroids. Activities kind of freak me out, but I'm sure I'll come 'round to them as well in the end. Needless to say I'll be obsessing over both until I get at least one of each up and running.
User Comments for 03-05-2008:
Although Iím a IE fanboy and still like it more than Firefox, I think M$ did make a mistake with IE7 which made a lot of people jump ship to Mozilla. Because IE8 is beta it should be a separate install and not overwrite IE7 so you can actually test it. and isn't IE7 only 1 year old? I remember IE6 lasted at least 5 years so is M$ admitting a mistake?
Stavos
So, and don't take this the wrong way, when will your site stop looking like shit?
MorlockPrime
I thought it was supposed to look like shit. Isn't that joke? har har... cough.
brian
Welcome to 2002.
Duane
Have I mentioned that the iPhone rules
Enorym
Btw for the record I'm writing this while I'm in a pizza place in napa called red brick
Enorym
IE8 screws a few of my sites, as well, including my primary site. Oh well, time to fix the misc bugs finally, I guess...
E1
When we arrive to California Iím throwing your iPhone over the Golden gate iBridge, into the iWater!
Stavos
IE8 doesn't break sites. Non-compliant markup does. Web Standards will free us all.
Duane
iDon't care about iPhone. IHope it crashes into a unrecoverable iState.
R1OT
No, its not my HTML, its IE8 dammit. LOL. Well, more properly its IE6 that's breaking IE8 -- since I had to add custom crap to make IE6 work and those fixes are screwing IE8... I'll get it figured out, but until then they're stuck with an extra whitespace on my main site.
E1
I know you all were worried about DetroitArchive and just to inform everyone DetroitArchive is IE8 compatible. Good old fashioned asp and 2004 design still holding strong four years later. On a totally unrelated note if you need a website hire me Iím the only official IE8 designer in these parts.
Stavos
For some of Stavos' sample work, please visit www.shemale.com, www.bighairymen.org, and www.bigtrannies.com
MorlockPrime
Though my favorite ie8 compliant Stavos site is www.getridofallcanadians.com

Rating: 3 - Link to this Article 03-02-2008 Morlock In The Freep View Webcam for 03-02-2008 6 COMMENTS
Awhile back, the Detroit Free Press stopped by my work to interview Michigan companies. While they were here, the original Morlock decided to unload an entire round of nerf darts in my general direction. The photographer caught him on camera and included it in the article. A perfect avatar photo. Now that he's famous, I also plan to up his rent accordingly.
User Comments for 03-02-2008:
Congratulation Morlock on your 15 mins of fame, can the Freep buy a better camera that photo is horrible quality.
Stavos
Where is the resulting photo with nerf darts covering Lloyd's face and junk?
MorlockPrime
Brads 15 mins were all used up with the Cougar commercials, the Freep and all news media know this thatís why were all granted 15 min of fame.
Stavos
You may now purchase my autograph on my new eBay store, as well. Line up, they're going fast... :P
E1
Well at least we now know where Morlocks evolve from.... Blood sucking Salesmen!
Stavos
It's true. My father was a salesman for some time. Also, I'm pretty sure when he visits Asia he does improper things to children and drinks the blood of virgins. I can only hope to be so noble one day.

Civil Defense If the Civil Defense LAN is any indication of Michigans state of preparedness, we'll owe our lives to Canada and Ohio. Jaird and Ron were the only two brave enough show up and assist me in protecting our oil assets in Frontlines: Fuel Of War. We spent the great majority of the LAN playing this new game, and even with only 3 people playing it was different enough from other FPS to keep us going well into the night. Once we discovered all the weapon load outs and specialties, we switched to Starcraft before enjoying our celebratory dinner at Rams Horn. Surprisingly, the least attended LAN ever wound up being sufficiently entertaining. Gnome Cam is here, video is pending.
User Comments for 03-01-2008:
Sorry to miss out, apparently when you get a free power supply the only last one year before they blowup.
Stavos
I'm not sorry, I don't care for flatlanders or canadians.
MorlockPrime
OK, I'll help save all your hides... except the Morlock's hide. I'll use him as bait for the terrorists.
