The "Traffic Made Me Do It" Show

I didn't think it was possible, but traffic is getting worse in LA. Last week, it took me nearly 3 hours to get home from work - a 12 mile commute. Today, it took me almost 2 t go the 9 miles necessary to get to Little Radio downtown. I had visions of using my truck to knock other cars out of my way. I put my head in my hands and cried. I had a big shot of Jameson's on ice when I got to the studios.

Then things were a little better.

The Lure Would Prove Too Much

Today I was able to completely dork out on my new favorite Twilight Singers song EVER. Really. It's dreamy and beautiful and makes me cry, and I could not tell you why. It's from their new EP, A Stitch in Time. Get it from iTunes; yu won't be sorry. You'll swoon. Really.
