|Finally got my driver's license|
This past Monday, after nearly three years with a permit and three road tests, I finally managed to clinch my driver's license. Feels weird to have that much more freedom. The first six albums on this list, I picked up at Bull Moose on my first major solo excursion - the last three, I spun on that drive and an earlier breakfast errand.
|1||Fair to Midland|
Fables From a Mayfly: What I Tell You Three Times is True
This has been high on my list of favorite albums since 2010, but for whatever reason, I never got around to acquiring a physical copy. That was finally rectified Tuesday evening.
Is a Woman
Mid-year frontrunner for the 2017 discovery sweepstakes
Top 10 of last year for me, got pretty badly overlooked by Sputnik at large
Trouble Will Find Me
An unexpectedly great album for driving
Carrie and Lowell
Lately I've been listening to quite a bit of this...
|6||Sun Kil Moon|
...and this. Been on a folk/quieter music kick.
|7||Thank You Scientist|
Maps of Non-Existent Places
Only listened to "Suspicious Waveforms" and just on a trip to Dunkin Donuts and back, but if you mention the phrase "morning commuter jam" to me, this is the first tune that pops into my mind.
Then you have this, which is quite possibly THE quintessential driving album.
Left and Leaving
Night cruising down a blank highway
|Jammed 1, 8, and 4 on a joyride earlier this afternoon along Route 133 in northeastern Massachusetts. Perfect weather and a scenic route to boot.|
|now learn to properly care for your ride|
|congrats dude. were you like 9 y.o when you joined sput?|
|lol I was 13 when I joined Sput... was a wee bit late in getting my permit, chose not to apply until after I had completed drivers' ed, which I couldn't afford until I was 18|
|I got mine first try last year and I honestly don't know how I passed the parallel parking portion because I still can't do it, and refuse to do it.|
|Parallel parking is what tripped me up when I took my second road test last Monday, nearly backed into a fence and my instructor had to pull the emergency brake. He was going to pass me until then, though, and I came so close that he told me to just brush up on parallel parking and reapply for a road test the following week (i.e. this one)|
|Doof is going to love you for 2 and 8..|
|i'm 23 and still don't have my license and don't think i've driven in at least 5 years lol|
I fucked up parallel parking on my test but still passed, you must've had a harsh evaluator. Then again they didn't have to use the e brake for me so perhaps it was the right call lol
|Parallel parking is a clutch thing to know if you ever plan on having a vehicle in the city, I can do it without thinking now.|
|congrats man. with great power and all that don't let it go to your head.|
|@Boney nah, he wasn't harsh at all. I made a few other minor slip-ups during that road test that he was going to let slide, the e-brake is where he had to draw the line haha|
|John frusciante doesnt have his license and he's almost 50|
