My car over-heated yesterday!!! My poor 2004 VW Golf…I think at some point I seriously angered the car gods…Anyways I had her towed to the closest VW dealer because it is still under warranty and it turns out the water pump was busted…I thought it was for sure the thermostat but I guess this is why I am not a mechanic. It was all covered under warranty (Weeeee). But they tried their hardest to get some money out of me because suddenly my hood release isn’t working correctly (even though I had just opened it when she started over-heating and it seemed perfectly fine to me) so they either broke it or they were trying to screw me, I’m thinking it’s both so I told them to just fix what needed to be fixed and that was that.But given the circumstances I needed some dreamy indie-pop to take me to a land filled with beautiful flowers and dancing elephants…The Clientele is a four piece band from the UK who make some of the dreamiest psych-pop with a 60’s flare I have heard since Belle & Sebastian. Their new album God Save The Clientele (Merge Records) was just released this past Tuesday and it is pop-tastic indeed. Cheers!

    The whims of the car gods are indeed mysterious. I’ve got one car that’s over seven years old and I didn’t even know where the dealer’s service dept was until last month when they offered a free inspection. Our other vehicle is only a couple of years old and it’s been in and out of service more times than I can count.

    In the latter case, one recurrent problem drives me nuts. There’s this one widget that breaks every winter because it isn’t designed to withstand cold temperatures. Hello! You’re selling vehicles in Canada?

    Anyhoo, I’m rambling. Glad your vehicle problems worked out.
