Tuned for Travel

Car: Rented. It's a very small car with manual everything (except, thankfully, transmission). Again I was offered an SUV (they really tend to push those awful things)...

On the way back, I swung by Whole Foods to grab a very late lunch and a nightmeal for when I'm in the car. I love their mix-your-own-meal thing - having a nice variety of small fruits/berries, noodles, pasta, and some corn/peas in a meal is wonderful. Two mixes for the car:

Brain Mix (revised) (this needs to put into a suitable order):

  1. Dr Channard - Beborn Beton
  2. Parts of the Brain - Pinky and the Brain
  3. Psychopharmacology - Firewater
  4. When I Held Your Brain In My Arms - Mystery Science Theatre 3000
  5. Re Your Brains - Jonathan Coulton
  6. Novocaine For The Soul - Eels
  7. Thoughts of a Dying Atheist - Muse
  8. Lastima Grande - Tosca Tango Orchestra
  9. Grey Matter - Oingo Boingo
  10. Which Describes How You're Feeling - They Might Be Giants
  11. Breaking Out/Duel Duet - Shock Treatment

  3. Doctor Who Theme (Sixth Doctor version) - BBC
  4. South Carolina - John Linnell

  6. Panzer Mensch - And One
  7. Syntax - Imperative Reaction
  8. Biscaya - James Last
  9. Bei Mir Bist Du Schön - La Furiosa

  16. Not Ready to Make Nice - Dixie Chicks
  17. Chattahoochie - Alan Jackson
  18. Vampires - Fastball
  19. Once in a Lifetime - Wolfsheim
  20. Marching Bands of Manhattan - Death Cab For Cutie (if the mix were a *lot* longer, this would be fantastic to hear during a sunrise)

Although it's not in a mix, Iris's "Everybody is Life" is a fantastic song that makes me all gushy and happy and sad at the same time.

For now, no club plans yet, nor do I know where I'm parking. Hopefully I'll figure that out after I wake up around midnight to get moving. I might concievably park in Philly and take a train to NYC, if the train is relatively quick and cheap. Anyone with advice on the specifics of parking or clubs, please leave a comment or email me before midnight.
