Starpulse Hits The Track

Starpulse Hits The Track At The Toyota Grand Prix Of Long Beach
The Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach is one of the premier events in open-wheel motor racing, and race weekend is roughly 24 hours away. But what's it like to actually get out on the Long Beach track? We answered that question recently when we climbed in for a ride around America's best street circuit.

Firstly, if you're not familiar with open-wheel racing or motor racing in general, driving at Long Beach is not like NASCAR. The Grand Prix track is a "street course," which means exactly what it sounds like: the circuit is constructed literally on the streets of Long Beach.

Patrick Stewart Shows Off His Christmas Spirit In Marvelous Danc
Patrick Stewart says so much without saying a word. The "Star Trek" and "X-Men" star showed his Christmas spirit over the weekend in a silly video in which he makes faces while wearing a singing holiday hat.

Aptly titled, "Sweet Hat Bro," the video was shot by his wive Sunny Ozell who laughs as he first appears stern while the hat lights up and dances on his head. Eventually, the veteran actor cracks a smile at the absurdity of the situation. He doesn't say a word in the video -- his face says it all.

The video was posted on Christmas Eve.

Honda. Ford. Chevy. These are all household names. We see them every day driving to work, or while going to grab a cup of coffee on the corner, or from our office window. They don't do anything special to really grab your attention - they just exist to get us from point A to point B. And for most of us, that's just fine.

But for those who can afford it, vehicles offer something else - status. And those vehicles are fast and loud, and they grab -no- command attention wherever they go. Whether it's through sleek, formula 1-like styling, or monstrous engines that roar like lions and move like...

With a wry smile he tells her to "hush, you are here to learn, not to talk," when she laughs. He continues, "What you have to understand about the quadruple take is it’s not in the same style as the take, single or double take, right, it’s a different style of physical comedy."
