I feel like Dr. Henry Killinger from The Venture Bros. During the episode when he tries to transform Dr. Venture into a villain, Killinger sits back and remarks that he feels like a proud papa. Of course, Thaddeus Venture doesn’t want to be a villain, so he turns away from Killinger to stay on the course of becoming who he thinks he’s supposed to be. Hooniverse’s own Blake Z. Rong was once on the path to becoming a reverse hero here on our virtual slice of the internet. He, instead, chose to rise up and become a productive member of the mainstream automotive media… and we couldn’t be more proud of him.
Mr. Rong (that’s what I’m required to call him now) is in a new position as
West Coast Editor Associate Editor of Autoweek. You read that right, he’s holding down the left side for the man Churning out news and stories about the day-to-day in the industry. In one of his latest pieces, Blake discusses how he came to be a Mazda Miata owner, and why he loves his car.
I feel like a proud papa, even though Hooniverse didn’t really have anything to do with his ascension. He’s a great writer, and people took notice.
He’s still a terrible driver though…
