posted January 29, 10:08 am on Artvoice Daily

Following several weeks of court appearances and lobbying efforts on behalf of Lackawanna’s community cats, it is uncertain whether the City Council will even consider modifying its outdated and draconian laws for dealing with free roaming, unowned cats... (more)

YAK Car Pic of the Day

posted January 29, 12:01 am on Artvoice Daily

This 1985-87 AMC Eagle four-door wagon might be just the perfect winter car. AMC’s Eagles started life as Concords (which themselves began life as Hornets), a series of two- and four-door sedans, and three-door hatchback coupes and this wagon body style... (more)

Can’t believe it was almost five years ago that I found this 1954 Ford Customline Tudor sitting in a very eclectic used car lot in Falconer. The Customline sat in the middle of Ford’s lineup for ’54, between the cheaper Mainline and fancier Crestline... (more)

Predicting the Super Bowl – Nerd Style

posted January 27, 4:46 pm on Tech Voice

The Super Bowl is coming this weekend.  Who’s going to win?  Well, we could just pick whichever team our friends are cheering for (since Buffalo hasn’t been to a Super Bowl since I was in grade school), or we could nerd out to the max and employ some predictive statistical analysis to put our best guess on a whole new level of guessing...

The 1973 Plymouth Valiant was always a sensible, reliable car. Maybe that’s why, once the Duster coupe replaced the two-door sedan version, it pretty much left the Valiant in its… dust. Who wants sensible when you can have something that looks better? Lol... (more)

Just put the finishing touches on this week’s YAK column on the new Lincoln MKC, so it seemed as good a time as any to once again visit one of the photo albums of Facebook friend Jim Jordan of Oklahoma City... (more)

Another gently-used pickup is this 1992 Ford F-150, seen often tooling around the City of Niagara Falls. Although this photo was taken a few years back, I still see this truck regularly; the last time wearing a pair of snow tires on the rear axle... (more)

Movie Day here at the YAK home office, and this time it was the 1956 musical High Society. In this pic, we see Grace Kelly driving Frank Sinatra in her 1955 Mercedes-Benz 190 SL (please people, no Grace Kelly driving jokes)... (more)

The first time I passed this 1969 Ford Torino GT fastback it was sitting on this trailer. I passed it again a while back, down on the ground, so from that fact, and also that it’s wearing Virginia historical plates, I’ll assume that the Cambria homeowner in whose yard it is parked is the car’s new owner...

Artvoice IT Guys Build Theremins

posted January 22, 1:58 pm on Tech Voice

What’s a theremin?  You wave your hand through the science flying around in the air and sound comes out.  No, seriously.  It’s an early electronic musical instrument, first patented by Léon Theremin in 1928... (more)
