"He's a smart little mother******, I'll give him that." - KEITH RICHARDS on MICK JAGGERMick: The Wild Life and Mad Genius of Jagger ($20) tries to show us the real Mick Jagger. Is he A Street Fighting Man? A Jumping Jack Flash? Or a Man of Wealth and Taste? It turns out he is all of these, and much much more. Mick Jagger can only be described as a force of nature, one of a kind, and one of the most dominant cultural figures of not only our time, but arguably all time. Strutting, swaggering, often elusive yet always spellbinding, he grabbed the world by the throat more than half a century ago and, unlike many of his most gifted peers, hasn't let go since.

BMW's new concept looks like its about ready for prime time. The Concept looks less like a futuristic ride and more like a car thats ready for production. The BMW X4 ($TBA) will fit between the X3 and X5. It is built on the X3 base, but derives its looks from the X6. Which is a great move. I was not thrilled with the X3's design. The X4 looks like it will have some cojones and not like a cheaper version of the X5. If the production vehicle is similar to the concept, the X4 will be 1.3 inches wider and 1.5 inches lower than the X4. The X4 will be debuting at the 2013 shanghai Auto Show and production is expected to start some time in 2014.
Deus Ex Machina have done it again with their latest build the Deus Ex Machina Sea Sider Motorcycle ($CALL). This bike is perfect for every beach bum living a life of leisure. From the looks of things the original donor bike was a variant of the Honda Trail 90 which was popular in the 60's and 70's. The Trail 90 featured an 89cc OHC single cylinder engined paired with a 4-speed drivetrain.Deus took this already simple bike and stripped it down to make it as lightweight as possible. They started off by stripping the frame of any unneeded parts. From there they added their own customizations including a hand made exhaust and surf rack, some vintage bicycle pieces like the handlebars and front light, and a front basket.The end result is a small lightweight bike that makes everyone drool who sees it. If you're around Bali, you can check the Sea Sider in the Temple of Enthusiasm in Canggu showroom.
