Music Time: “Cars & Driving Edition” 10/15/16

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…

Music Time! Water Edition… 5/14/16

RainHeader

So we got a little water logged today, so what’s the shuffle got for “water?” We got soaked. By soaked I mean standing in a cold waterfall with clothes on for an hour followed by full blown pneumonia 30 minutes later. The rain came on hard and we had to scramble to get the canopy down, everything packed up, into the car, and then get ourselves in. We weren’t fast enough and the rain was too hard and too fast. Drenched!
