Wheels of a Dream

May 24, 2009 By: Andrew Category: Movings

Moving to New York means selling my car because, let’s face it, I can barely afford to live in the city as it is. (If it costs me $6/day to park in downtown Nashville, I don’t even want to think what an NYC parking bill looks like…) Truth be told, I’m feeling a little guilty about auctioning off my trusty Civic to the highest bidder since it has been such a fine, four-fendered friend these past five years. Accordingly, I made a pro/con list to offset the guilt…

Pros

  • No car payments
  • No insurance payments
  • I can laugh at all of the common folk as they gnash their teeth over rising gas prices
  • No more paranoia about running into (yet another) stationary concrete parking lot pillar

Cons

  • Nowhere to sing showtunes/old school CCM at the top of my lungs
  • The common folk will laugh at me whenever MTA raises the price of a one-month Metrocard
  • I’ll have to scrap plans to shoot my long-awaited, suburban take on the classic Whitesnake “Here I Go Again” video

Something’s Coming

Tweet!What better way to celebrate the relaunch of my blog than with the release of Mix of the Summer 2009?

For those of you who do not know, I put an unhealthy amount of time into crafting and perfecting a seemingly endless series of mix CDs. The tradition started in high school when I distributed my trademark 90s mixes to about half of my senior class. (I may or may not be stretching that figure…) They always dropped on a Tuesday, of course, so today is no different. To see the full tracklisitng and to view my ghetto label design, click >here<. Let me know if you want a copy!

The design is inspired by Twitter, but that does not change the fact that I am still very suspicious of this newest social networking trend, appropriately dubbed “the digital macarena” by “The Soup.” A few of my friends are really into it though…What’s the concensus? Should I jump on the Twitter bandwagon?
