Bullz-Eye landed in San Diego to participate in a media drive of the all new 2011 Nissan Murano Cabriolet. We officially take the wheel of the "segment first" drop top. While you're waiting for the highlights, check out the gallery of a couple of the 2011 Nissan Murano's we'll be cruising around in today.
Ladies and gentlemen, the first speed metal song.
Freddie Mercury, man. They just don’t make singers like that anymore.
And, if you’re looking for something more contemporary, here’s Trent Reznor’s remix of the song. RAWK! _\m/
I recently joined a roundtable with Fred DePerez who is Head of Dodge Marketing at the North American International Auto Show. Dodge has some exciting products and we had a chance to check them out up close and we were impressed!
I am a backpack guy. Whether I’m going away for a week or heading out for a quick overnighter, you can bet I’ve got my backpack slung across my back for the trip. However, that doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate a good laptop shoulder bag, especially for those daily commutes or day-long work meetings where a hulking backpack would just be overkill. Seeing as how my favorite backpack at the moment – and, incidentally, the best one I’ve ever owned – is SLAPPA’s custom build M.A.S.K. backpack, I didn’t hesitate when offered the opportunity to take the KIKEN shoulder bag (billed as the M.A.S.K. cousin) for a test drive.
Now, we’ve admittedly been big SLAPPA fans here at Bullz-Eye for several years, largely because they’ve always delivered high-quality bags that have clearly been thoroughly researched long before seeing the light of day. The KIKEN is no different on that front. SLAPPA spent nearly 20 months developing this shoulder bag, surveying customers and trade show attendees in an effort to, as they say, “develop the best laptop shoulder bag on the market.” Did they succeed? Well, we won’t pretend to have that answer since we haven’t sampled the KIKEN’s closest competitors, but after spending one weekend with the bag, we can say those 20 months of development were very well spent.
I recently left the wife and kids for a weekend and headed up to Traverse City, MI, for my annual trip with some college friends. Typically, this weekend is built for my M.A.S.K. backpack, but I couldn’t pass up the perfect opportunity to really put the KIKEN through the paces. I loaded it up with everything I’d normally throw into my backpack – laptop, iPod, all the necessary cords and chargers, GPS and mount, some snacks, an extra pair of shoes, some cold weather gear, and a few other odds and ends. With its huge center storage compartment and series of handy pockets, along with the TSA-friendly quick-scan 18” laptop section in the back, the KIKEN took everything I could throw at it. Plus, packing everything up was a breeze since you can open both main compartments wide like a book to get to everything you need. And like most other SLAPPA bags, it’s made with puncture-proof and water-resistant 1680D Ballistix nylon, and every zipper puller, clasp and “D” ring is molded alloy. We’ve come to expect nothing but top quality from SLAPPA gear, and they always deliver.
That’s not to say I dig everything about the KIKEN – I’d prefer clasps on the bag flap instead of a long Velcro strip, and I’d love to have a mesh pocket on one of the corners for a water bottle – but those two quibbles are more than offset by the ability to customize the look of the bag with one of the four interchangeable flaps, which allows you to change the look and functionality of the bag at any time. For my trip, I swapped out the Black Blast flap for the Jedi Mind Trix option, which comes with two large Velcro straps that I used tie down my jacket. Handy, indeed. Granted, you have to buy each of the flaps separately, but it’s a cool option to have nonetheless, particularly for a cavernous bag like this that still doesn’t feel too bulky when it’s strapped onto your shoulder. We can’t definitively say the KIKEN is the best laptop shoulder bag on the market, but we’d be surprised if it had much competition for that title.

We’ve already hit March, but winter is still at full strength in most of the country. With that in mind we’ve put together a slideshow from the Bullz-Eye archives to take you mind off the cold and snow and shift your attention to more pleasant thoughts. Hopefully you have a beach vacation coming soon so you can enjoy the sites of blondes in bikinis in person!
The first photo has the amazing Ali Sonoma in a blue bikini on a terrace overlooking Miami Beach. The former UFC Octagon Girl looks amazing! Next we have Playboy Playmate Kimberly Holland in a sporty yellow and black bikini from her Bullz-Eye photo shoot in Florida in 2006. Then we’re off to Australia for a beautiful photo of Nina in a polka dot bikini on the beaches of Sydney.
The fourth photo has Australian model Sophie Turner in a light blue bikini from her amazing Bullz-Eye shoot from 2008. With the fifth photo we’re off to Hollywood with British beauty Holly Kishere sporting a pink bikini next to the pool in the SoCal sunshine. Holly was once a ring girl for the International Fight League. For #6 we’re staying on the West Coast as the stunning Sammi Maben sports a striped bikini on the roof of a beach house in Santa Monica soaking up the late evening sunset.
Next we’re off to The Bahamas and the lovely Lindsey Eller and a lime green bikini on the sandy beaches near the Wyndham hotel from the Racey Girl finals. We round out the group with Elaine Alden as she sports some sexy shades and a shiny, dark bikini with the late evening sun shining on her.
Enjoy the slideshow, and then book your trip anywhere you can find some sunshine and bikinis!

On the way to the Super Bowl, Bullz-Eye stops into The Texas Junk Co. to check out some Cowboy Boots. Bob is one cool guy and the Chrysler 200 is one cool car!
Our readers will remember the beautiful Kaila Yu who we featured in a lingerie shoot in 2008. Kaila is in a band called Nylon Pink with other lovely ladies, and they will be playing at an event on Thursday night in Hollywood, California hosted by RAW:natural born artists.
RAW is “an independent arts organization that hand-selects and spotlights independent creatives in visual art, film, fashion, music, hair & makeup artistry, photography, models and performing art.” As you can see from the photos above, the girls in Nylon Pink love beautiful photography.
