    Unless you're James Bond or Jason Bourne and need to escape, no reason to back into a spot

    I don't back into a spot unless there is a reason.
    I do "drive through" whenever I have the option so that I avoid the need to back out, when I go to leave.

    Doesn't bother me

    What does bother me is when people take up two spots because they are weak sauce, or because they think they need to protect their car.  Used to work with a guy years back to parked diagonally across  two spots in his Viper.  It got keyed.  I told him he earned that, but it sucked that someone  did that to him.

    New Eddie single's pretty decent. Way better than that Haves song.

    Just listened to it - sounds like two songs between the beginning and end, like the 2nd part better.

    Conor Lamb Campaign attacking Fetterman for "talking about Sheetz vs. Wawa" - they are really flailing. Anyone ever been to a Sheetz? I haven't.

    Sheetz's are, dare I say it....good...goddamnit. But I mean it's fluff dumb jokey stuff that Fetterman's campaign has been doing.

    I saw Dave McCormick get on the tee vee on Good Day this morning. I wonder how that happened, I know these politicians get up in arms that there's some kind of fair process of getting in front of potential voters.

    Used to eat Sheetz all the time up in Bloomsburg. Schmuffins are the shit when you're shitfaced. 

    Speaking of Bloomsburg, I was intrigued by this McCormick character when his commercials popped up out of nowhere as they make a big deal about him being from The Only Town in Pa....until I read that he's being propped up by a bunch of Trumpers behind the scenes. I think he's going to be running as sort of a Maga alternative when he's anything but. No thanks.

    He's like one of those hedge fund guys and he lives in Connecticut. He probably has more boats than Betsy DeVos. They have no worthy candidates who actually live anywhere in this entire state? Yeah that sounds about right.

    Look at that list of names within that tweet running. Who the hell is Carla Sands? I figure Bartos comes out on top for the Rs? Haha, Oz hasn't reported yet, looking forward to that.

    Carla Sands has some direct tie to Trump

    edit--of course, she is Trump's former Ambassador to Denmark!

    I back into spots now. little easier especially when your car has a backup camera. Don't think i would as confident doing it in my old car which didn't have one.

    Just listened to it - sounds like two songs between the beginning and end, like the 2nd part better.
    Agree after my first listen.
    Suffers greatly by comparison when I listened to Blizzard of Ozz last night and The Score this morning

    Two amazing  records

    This is ho-hum by comparison,  but better than the last tune.

    Comparing a 60 year old solo Eddie record to one of Ozzy Osborne's best at his peak seems a bit disingenuous, no? lol


    Also, I would not have pegged you for a Fugees fan. That one reminds me college.

    I certainly  agree on the spot in time for those two albums, I was just sharing why it fell in a tough space for me to best appreciate. 

    That album is amazing.  I listened all of the way through not long ago due to a poll on this site and was blown away.  While I appreciated  their music I don't know I'd ever listened all of the way through.  Once I did, I was hooked.
    Do you like that one?

    Yeah, I mean, any song/album that conjures of up memories of those days for me is definitely up my alley. I don't think I have listened to it since then though. Might as well throw it on today!

    I think I appreciate more than anything that F Me pulled out a 25 year old album for the first time and was blown away. That's awesome.

    Going through my moms stuff before she moves. Phillies-Pirates August 8th 1965, 2nd of a double header. Phillies win 5-2. Roberto Clemente with a lowly single

    Just for you, hawkey.
    Had to run out to drop/pick up dry cleaning, to gamestop to get a new ps4 controller for the boy, and put the new car through the car wash.
    Who needs to put put on long pants for that?

    Ah. Hated to part with the 2009 Accord, still in great shape.
    Genesis G80.

    Lol I hear you. Love me some Honda’s! Basically every car I have ever had. Dude, very much about to buy the GV80. Curious about your opinions on Genesis in general

    I'm too damn cheap to buy a new car, I couldn't find a used GV80 locally so didn't test drive but I was very interested in it.  Took a Volvo xc90 for a few days and liked it but returned.  Genesis is really nice. Got one with 29k miles.  High quality, smooth and lots of options.  Honestly, it is on par as far as comfort with the luxury cars that would cost 20-30k more.  I'm very pleased either it.  Comfortable as can be, 10x more so than my Honda, which I liked.
    I think you'll like it.  
    I drove a fucking hell of a bargain, which is tough to do these days.  Pleased they played ball with me.

    Family was bummed, at first.  They loved the Volvo.
    It was really nice, but I saved 10 grand.  ;)  I'm cheap.  Rather spend my money on sushi and booze than on cars.
