is in town. We redesigned and rebranded the main site. Take a look.
“Kiss My Asphalt” was too cliche and had been done 7 ways from Sunday. The joint is now called Asphalt Valhalla. “Asphalt” as a link to our past, and because that is where cars are at their best. “Valhalla” because that is the destiny for venerated warriors. Plus, I feel a kinship to the old Norse ways. Together, it is a site to celebrate the wondrous grail cars before they take their flaming boat ride. Enjoy
There has been an awakening in the force. “Kiss My Asphalt” was a cute-ish play on words. Except the Simpsons already did it. And it sounds like something Flo at Mel’s Diner would say in between cracks of her gum.
It was time for a change. Not to “Larry Thorson Media.” That is this space, and it’s sort of a meta view of the world of my media interests. Plus, bleh. I hate self-promotion. I do the bare minimum.
Several minutes of checking for copycats later, I had a name that incorporated my love of cars, my efforts to find and document the grail cars (and occasional unicorns).
So give a welcome to Asphalt Valhalla. It’s here (as soon as it propagates; transitioning URLs will happen when it happens), it’s mine and most of all, it hasn’t been done that I could find. I have the Twitter, the FB (in review) and the Instagram.
Enjoy. I am open to thoughts and helpful criticism.
