I got pulled over yesterday with my mom in the car… Yes, that is right, oh dear. My mom is a funny lady, but good god she is nuts! I knew he was going to pull me over as soon as I saw him behind me because my registration tags are expired. Fucking registration… It is going to be the death of me… Every year? Really? You would think my registration would be cheap by this point however,  I think I am a parking ticket magnet. Actually, it is not really that bad but I had a short stint at this job in LA and well some of us had to park on the street and blah blah I forgot about them so add those to my registration and it is expensive. Anyways so there my mom is sitting next to me going,  “OMG! Why is he pulling you over?” I tell her that my tags are expired… “Oh well you have to take care of that.” Thinking to myself, “no shit”. So my window goes down and I put on the charm and he didn’t give me a fix it ticket because I really could do without any more tickets in my life.

On another note… I am staying in tonight to watch the Golden Globe Awards… Yes, I am a little bit of a celebrity whore sometimes. But damn it so many good shows up for awards such as Californication, The Office, 30 Rock, Weeds. Speaking of television The Coral Sea was featured on last weeks new episode of Grey’s Anatomy. Santogold’s Lights Out was also featured (love it).

I missed this new album from The Coral Sea, it is pretty good. It has a handful of songs on it that made it on to the pod. Worth checking out.

    I’m thinking to “Girls in Hawaii” when I listen to these beautiful songs… Do yo know this fantastic Belgian group?

    Awesome Andy, that always brings a smile to my face. :-)

    mfi, I had not heard of this Belgium band, thanks for the info. Listening to them now…

    oh dear, those darn registrations! i got stopped for that once, too–$125!! i was over a year behind, but still!

    i’ll give the coral sea another go, as well as look up the band mfi suggests. i get a fair number of hits from belgium, so the least i can do is reciprocate somehow, am i right?

    Yeah, “Girls in Hawaii” is not too bad.
    The Coral Sea album has a couple of good tracks on it, definitely give them another try.

    I have to pay half the registration now and the other half later. This means I have to go into the DMV… So lame.

    It makes me happy to note, however, that I am not the only mom who feels compelled to offer incredibly obvious (and probably irritating) advice like, you should have taken care of that. Don’t be mad at your mom. We can’t help it.

    I know… :-) Hey where would be without our parents stating the obvious? With out such I think I may be in the twilight zone. hehe
