Working cars into your daily diet used to be a bit of a challenge, unless you regularly consume race car birthday cakes or something. That is, until now. The Canadian YouTube sensations at Epic Meal Time have solved your car guy culinary crisis with their latest creation: meat cars. Cute little cars that are eatable, but this is not something that you dream about when you’re a kid. This car really rolls, and with tonnes of fat!
As usual, the things created by Epic Meal Time are really epic. The body of the meat car is like a highly modified shepherd’s pie, but instead of corn, they used macaroni and cheese. Bacon saturates everything the team does, from the ground beef and bacon skin of the shepherd’s pie, to the beer and bacon grease batter, to the bacon grease buttery mashed potatoes. And let’s not forget the Jacks.
And you thought that your new sets of shiny rims are cool, you must check this out. Keeping things (meat!) rolling along is a set of four salami wheels wrapped in onion tires and garnished with a healthy dose of chrome. These may be cars made of meat, but they do actually roll. Top that off with a candy (yes, actual candy) paint job, and you have a stylin’, 23,266 calorie meat ride.
Yes the Sony Next Generation Portable (NGP) isn’t out yet, but it’s worth Sony’s mention. Sony’s streaming subscription music service, Music Unlimited, is headed to both the PlayStation Portable and its pair of divergent spiritual successors the Next Generation Portable and Sony Ericsson’s Xperia Play.
Eurogamer had a chat with Sony Network Entertainment VP Shawn Layden, who confirmed the news, that the service would be activated (at least in the UK) on PlayStation Portable “in a matter of weeks.”
Meanwhile, Android phones including the infamous PlayStation handset will get Music Unlimited “this year,” and SNE “will make it happen” on the NGP as well, presumably sometime after the company reveals when its beast of a portable game station will actually come out.
So does this mean that we’ll actually see the NGP hitting retail stores within this year?

Whenever a Top Gear episode airs, complaints and even lawyer letters will start to fly in. that’s because almost everything that came out of the mouth of Jeremy Clarkson in this highly popular automobile show is insulting to some, well only those that take the show too seriously. What’s more, even his own co-host isn’t very proud of what came out of Jezza’s mouth.
The hamster, Richard Hammond apologized this week for his offensive remarks about Mexicans during a Top Gear segment discussing the Mastretta MXT earlier this year. Hammond said he regretted the remarks, and sees now how they could have been offensive. Still, Hamster didn’t exactly come all the way clean, saying that his words – and those of his two co-hosts – were clearly a joke. Yes, we can see that hamster.
For its part, the BBC has stood behind Hammond, May and Clarkson, saying that off-color humor is an integral part of the show. The presenters and the BBC got a thorough shellacking over the comments after the show aired. Mexico’s ambassador to the UK called the remarks “offensive, xenophobic and humiliating.”
Hopefully corporates and governments will stop taking Top Gear too seriously, or else every minster in the world would be complaining in the parliament about a car show that’s damaging their national car with a hammer instead of moving the country forward.
