sausage scramble wrap for breakfast (2m30s in the nuker, could have stood 15 sec more) hit all the right notes.

Cousins Maine Lobster was our Wednesday food truck. I love lobster and we're in peak lobster season and the presentation was flawless, but wooo kinda pricey for what you get. Even the bisque. I'll probably try the shrimp tacos next time around, after that the lobster grilled cheese and tots seems like a favorite of the food truck veterans here.

Set Fri appt for Fiat state inspection and hand brake tension fix (not cool with the brake light flickering on and beeping at every bump in the road)

I think it may have been the Altamonte Fair where there was a laser show and one of the songs was Genesis: "Mama". Or maybe the Haydn Planetarium. Anyway, ever since, I can't hear that song without thinking of that trippy early laser show experience.

Spidering forth through "progressive rock" from Genesis, we come to Rush. With "Atlas Shrugged" fresh in my mind, I was maybe a little more willing to suffer through Geddy Lee's annoying vocal quality to study Lifeson's Rand-inspired lyrics.

nah
lol

When I was a kid, we had an enormous dresser-sized stereo record player cabinet on which I would play my sisters' rock-and-roll records. We had Rush's "2112", and some Zappa (had to be careful about which songs we played when the parents were home...), Meat Loaf's 1977 debut album, Alice Cooper's Greatest Hits, some Kiss records we all quickly outgrew, and some Beatles and Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin which I have still not outgrown. More, I'm sure, but those are the ones that I remember mostly before we made the shift to boom boxes and cassette tapes. Gotta wonder how Zep's "Kashmir", "When the Levee Breaks", or "No Quarter" would be received if they were newly-released today.
