You might see at the bottom of my posts a section I refer to as Sidecar.
What is a Sidecar? What is it’s purpose?
I mean, when you got a good thing, but there’s just that little extra that can make it a whole lot better, why not? Obviously a sidecar could be a seat with wheels attached to the side of a motorcycle. That’s true.
It could also be a cocktail:
|Primary alcohol by volume|
|Standard garnish||Sugared glass, lemon rind|
|Commonly used ingredients|
|Preparation||Mix the ingredients in a shaker half full of ice. Strain and serve in a sugar-rimmed glass. Garnish with a strip of lemon rind. (courtesy of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sidecar_(cocktail))|
In the case of my blog, it is where I post that little extra. I may write an entire post and think, MAN, I want to include THIS fact, or picture or video or tidbit, but it just doesn’t fit. But that’s doesn’t mean we should all be cheated out of it. So I Created the Sidecar (it’s just a not so cheezy way of saying “BONUS SECTION!”) in tribute to all these magnificent Sidecars (especially the top example, though the other 2 are REALLY cool! Sorry man, beautiful Rockabilly chicks for teh win. Oh yea.. ahem.. the uh, sidecar on the um… ya… the bike too… cough cough…
So there you have it. The creation of another use for the word “Sidecar.” and for some reason, it makes total sense.
