on tuesday baxter breathed life for the first time this year. oh dainty automobile how i missed you. took him for his first spin, almost entirely sideways and you still can't wipe the smile off my face. then took him to the auto electrician to get the new headlight dimmer switch installed, yes more sideways action.
my first special order fender guitar arrived in the shop and its already sold. yesterday i got my mark bass amp order as well as cool strings and straps. this morning im setting up a mark bass stack and testing it out with a fender p bass, my face bass in the shop. now im waiting on all my new pedals and picks and stuff. today im going to start ordering in some really fucking cool guitars and amps. im thinking gretsch, esp, peavey and hiwatt to round out the stock. any suggestions?
last night i took baxter out to pick up alex from the airport. the idle was too high and the throttle return spring pretty useless. combined with traffic at the airport baxter overheated and blew a hole in the top radiator hose. pulled into a disabled spot (apt) and proceeded to argue with a security guard who pointed to the disabled sign and said i was not allowed to leave the car due to government security laws. um its overheated, i need to fix it. had to get nrma so i could cut the radiator hose off shorter, fill the radiator with water, change the throttle return spring and reduce the idle, because i was not allowed to leave the car to get scissors and water.
as soon as i started the car everyone flinched, then i dumped it up the road, fishtailing wildly. i guess that's going to get me in trouble with the 56,000 cameras i bet there are around the airport...
