One thing that having to rent a car when I need it now and then has proved to me: car seats are more and more uncomfortable for people with lower back issues, especially if you have had surgery or damage in the lumbar area (L5/S1). Hyundai used to have good seats, but now they don’t. I may have no choice but to buy a really old used piece of shit and just nickle and dime myself to death taking care of it.
That being said… songs about cars and driving it is…
ARTIST: Adam and the Ants

Tonight is Boom Boom Palace (A Night of Synthpop) at Elysium Austin! So in honor of tonight… I’m posting some synthesizer music!
Synthpop is the grandparent of a lot of modern music (yes, even Top 40). From early bands, the influence on New Wave, New Age, and into the future with Futurepop, EBM, and yes, even things like Trance, Dance, and EDM. Industrial and Industrial Dance all have roots in synthpop and thanks to the guys who started playing with electronic sounds and instruments so many decades ago. And now we’re seeing a Synthpop Revival and it’s amazing!!!
So I’m posting songs from the beginnings to the modern movement of the synthesizer!
