Cruisin’ for a Bruisin’ | Todcast From Burley Oak Brewery

At the risk of appearing as if I’m tagging up on the Avengers phenomenon (I’m not) I think it is appropriate to compare the Cruisers — the vintage car enthusiasts who took over the region last weekend — to the Hulk. Like the Hulk, they are driven by a single force: they want to show off their cars and the things they’ve done to them. Also like the Hulk, they are neither (really) a force for good or a force for evil; they are just a forc and one you hope to have on your side because, let’s face it, it’s easier that way.
We spend a significant amount of time on this week’s Todcast debating the relative merits of the Cruisers. Todd DeHart, my co-host, put it best when he pointed out that people knew that the Cruisers were coming but they never understand what that means until it is too late. It’s the first real wakeup call for how busy it can be in Ocean City and for some it is an unpleasant reminder.
In Berlin, where things are less-chaotic, the Hulk moves around more docilely, still an unpredictable monster but less given to wild mood-swings and smashing. It’s probably the lack of salt in the air because when they hit the bridge all bets are off. They are no longer soothed by the “peaceful” times their cars recall in Berlin but more the American Graffiti in their heads wherein actions have no consequences because reality is maleable.

I moved to the Eastern Shore to enjoy a slower pace of life after spending several years working in fast-paced settings. Earning a BA from Towson University and an MA in Education from Loyola University provided me with the drive to progress in many business fields. As the owner of Good Clean Fun Life, an arts and entertainment magazine online, I have had the opportunity to spread good vibes, promote entertainment, artists, and events across the Mid-Atlantic region. GCFL provides me with many opportunities to practice a few of my favorite hobbies: photography, socializing, and blogging. GCFL is now headed in a new and exciting direction, allowing me to grow this into a full time venture in Digital Promotion using Content Strategy and Media Production.
