Six hours. That's how long it took. 425 miles from the cleanest and most pure water I've ever been in to the land of lake crud and crap. But that's also six hours with music. Loud and lovely schizophrenic music. Here's the low down.

Dave Matthews' newest.

Um. My favorite line. "I like my coffee with toast and jelly, but I'd rather be licking you from your back to your belly." YUMMY.

Patty Griffin. I think I love her.

BB King

Aaron Copland. I am convinced the man lived in South Dakota. And if he didn't, he should have. I can't help but put it in while I'm driving the endless prairie.

Holy cow, this is old.

And my Irish heritage is showing it's colors.

Throw in some radio, and it was a glorious ride.

Good tunes + road trip = fun...

Isn't it strange that the quintessential sound of the American West, was created by a gay Jew from New York. (Copeland.) :)

Welcome home!
Cool, thanks for the music lesson. When we road tripped in July I played some really eclectic stuff. I gave the in-laws some good listening 'cos I pull it from all genres. I can't take the sam ol', same ol stuff when it comes to music, especially during a 14+ hour trip both ways.

That Copland piece still makes me think of beef since they used it for beef commmercials a few years back.

Glad you had a good trip!

I'm sad that we didn't get to have our picnic. Unfortunately this weekend turned out to be REALLY not a good weekend so....maybe it was for the best. I look forward to seeing you sometime this fall, OKAY?

King and Clapton. One of my all time favorites, that is played often in my office.

I just got back to work after a 12 week vacation. I pretty much want to kill myself.
