Subcompacts continue to post strong sales in a struggling automotive market and the Mazda 2 won’t likely be an exception. The sporty little five-door exemplifies the Zoom Zoom brand Mazda has established over the past several years.
Our guys at Bullz-Eye had a chance to test drive the Mazda 2 in Montreal this year. Here’s an excerpt of what they found:
The vehicle offers levels of fuel economy you would expect for a subcompact, with five-speed manual transmission models returning 29/35 MPG (city/highway), while models equipped with available four-speed automatics will return 27/33 MPG (city/highway). These numbers represent the most fuel-efficient car in the Mazda lineup today, and the highest fuel efficiency of any Mazda vehicle ever offered in North America. Let’s hope these numbers get even better in future models, as Mazda and the other car companies make more investments in fuel economy technology.
The interior was comfortable and surprisingly roomy for a subcompact. The dash stresses horizontal lines so again Mazda avoided some of the radical design techniques embraced by others in this category. The Mazda designers stressed their goal of designing the car for its most common use – one driver in a city setting. They sacrificed some storage space in the back along the way, but it helped them achieve some of the design goals for the overall look of the vehicle.
Old Spice is right in the mix of the fight against underarm odor with 4 targeted scents from their “Fresh Collection” of anti perspirants – deodorants. We had the chance to test Cyprus, Matterhorn, Fiji and Denali and I have to say they are all good scents that won’t offend guys out there with an overpowering fragrance (some of the competing products went overboard with too strong of an aroma that can be mistaken as a disinfectant). The protection from perspiration from Old Spice was there throughout the day and any underarm odor was kept at bay!
I found it amusing that all of the contaniers describe each scent using the word “Freedom”. Example: Denali – Smells like Wilderness, Open air and “Freedom.” Don’t get too caught up when Old Spice references “Freedom” as I really didn’t get that feeling from this product and I wasn’t anymore free than the day before. At the least I now know what “Freedom” smells like but don’t get too cocky thinking just because you now smell like “Freedom” that you are “free” to do as you please. Back to the product here….Old Spice produced good sticks for us guys’ and I plan on using them going forward.

Politico has an interesting article on politicians and their mustaches, and what seems to be a new trend in some races.
North Dakota Gov. John Hoeven’s Facebook page for his U.S. Senate campaign has more than 7,000 fans.
The Republican’s mustache has its own page, with 750 fans and counting — nearly double the number of his Democratic challenger.
In past years, an ambitious politician like Hoeven might not have been eager to rock a ’stache, which until recently has been as taboo for blow-dried, television-era politicians as the mutton-chop sideburn. But this year, Hoeven is part of a boomlet of statewide candidates who are flouting conventional wisdom by proudly sporting a ’stache.
Hoeven and his ‘stache are pictured above, and Politico goes on to list other candidates this year who also sport a mustache.
The article also addresses some mustache stereotypes.
Long-standing stereotypes surrounding mustaches help explain why, until recently, so few pols have sported them.
“Lower-nose accoutrements are often associated with certain professions, such as law enforcement, motorcycle maintenance, pornography, pipe fitters and horseshoe fitters union 173,” said Aaron Perlut, chairman of the American Mustache Institute, a mustache-advocacy group based in St. Louis. (White House senior adviser David Axelrod and Attorney General Eric Holder were both finalists for AMI’s 2009 Mustached American of the Year award.)
Mike Gelman, owner of the popular D.C. men’s salon The Grooming Lounge, said mustaches have been associated with the most sinister people who have sported them — such as Josef Stalin and Saddam Hussein.
Trends can change quickly, so perhaps one prominent politician can change everything.
It may no longer be HBO’s flagship series, but “Entourage” remains one of the network’s most consistent performers. And after last year’s excellent sixth season helped to pull the series out of its creative lull, “Entourage” is gearing up for the return of Vincent Chase and Co. with ten new episodes starting June 27th following an all-new “True Blood” and the second season premiere of the criminally underrated “Hung.”
As rumors of a possible “Entourage” movie continue to make their way around Hollywood, both executive producer Mark Wahlberg and star Jeremy Piven have confirmed that there will probably only be one more season of the show after this year. That means that Season Seven is even more important than ever, as it’s guaranteed to play a major role in setting up whatever series finale the writers have in mind. For more on the upcoming season, read our preview over on Premium Hollywood, and then follow along on our Entourage Blog throughout the course of the season. And if that’s still not enough for you, be sure to visit our Entourage Fan Hub for more related content.
Sunday, June 27th at 10:30. Be there or Ari Gold will come looking for you.
