Post-dated desparate frustration  
(I meant to post this while it was still relevant, but I didn't have any connectivity)

An open letter to all Southwestern CT classic rock stations (which is to say, all of them):

Enough with the goddamn Led Zepplin!

It's bad enough that we forgot the FM transmitter for the iPod, and didn't get a rental car with a tape deck, but not only are you all playing this tripe, two of you are playing the SAME GODDAMN SONG! I can't escape it!
Current Mood: aggravatedaggravated
Current Music: Some shite by Led Zepplin

I'm so glad I didn't have to feel your pain.

Fortunately the local college station (WXCI, which had been ("back in my day, sonny!") a beacon of sanity and helped broaden my newly opened ears) finally got over their 5 year "We're a bunch of kids from suburban Connecticut, we need to assuage our social guilt (and really annoy the crap out of our parents) by identifying with 'urban culture' and listening to really bad hip-hop" phase, so we had an alternative to which to turn. It was still college radio, so it didn't always work out, but at least it was there (again).

Oh my.
Sorry you two hadda go through that- I guess there's consolation in how small CT is...

I think, in those circumstances, I would have spent $50 on used cd's. Any used cd's, just to get me through the day.

Wow, what an elegantly simple solution.

Careful consideration was given to buying another FM transmitter, but it would have required going near a maul right before The Holiday™.

I don't know why we didn't think of that. We could have gone to Trash (American Style, another (series of) story(-ies) for another time) and gotten something else to keep our ears from bleeding. I could counter with something about reliving my youth: driving around bored and tormented, but I spent a fair bit of that youth in Trash idolizing Malcolm (once I'd gotten over being terrified by him). I think Chiara even made a joke about going there at one point.

Duh. Where were you when we needed you? ;-)

Here in California, languishing away for lack of your company. So. Now that you guys are back, how's about we four plan to get together, eh?

Hrm, I thought I replied to this . . .

Ah, you were in a house full of kittens. I have grave doubts about the amount of languishing that was actually going on, but I greatly appreciate the sentiment. :)

Now that you guys are back, how's about we four plan to get together, eh?

And now that we're both over Teh Sik™ that sounds like a fabulous idea.
