Good news everyone! My automotive troubles are over, I got my ticket to see Devin Townsend next year, and I’m now only two weeks away from seeing Tool live. But in celebration of having a new car, most of my time has been spent in it driving around. The speakers are nice enough, but I stuck mostly listening to Fear Inoculum and Kavinsky, because the Drive soundtrack is excellent cruising music.
