the sound of silence…

OK, last week my car battery died, so I replaced it. Aside from a trivial thing like the clock being reset, you might also have to enter some security codes. The anti-theft system on my stereo/CD system required some code, that I didn’t receive when I purchased the car (5 years ago). Long story short, I had to make the time to go to the dealership near me, and get that all figured out.

That’s just some background. The real issue is the silence. I have never experienced as much silence in my car since I started driving. Being that I love music so much, this actually changed my mood – in a very bad way. I usually drive at a fast pace, err, at the speed limit. I blast a tune, and I enjoy the ride; no matter how short. Without the sound system, it was like driving Sadness to the mall, to meet her friend Anger… Everyday, for a week.

Well, onwards to better things: the dealership reset my system, and on the way in from the dealership I blasted some Kanye West. There was one positive thing about this experience: more time to further expound existing ideas. And in my head, Simon and Garfunkel’s classic The Sound of Silence quietly played. You know, like elevator music.

    NPR puts out quality content, every now and then… But yeah, you need to burn some CDs from your Rhapsody subscription.
