I probably had hundreds of Hot Wheels and Matchbox cars, but I was never given any tracks so I would terrorize my parents by improvising all over the house. I wish I knew where I put all those cars, despite their poor condition by now.   As for RC planes, my one and only foray into that territory ended up downed in a farmer's field next to a public park.
That reminds me of a company that a few friends worked for when I lived in Green Bay. They are a huge conglomerate that builds warships, commercial carriers, industrial loading and construction cranes, hotel ice machines, and vending machines, with yards all across the country. Their headquarters is a small but luxurious two-story building in a small city is Wisconsin, and you would never know how important they are if you were just passing by. Almost everyone who works...
That's one I've never seen before. Can somebody fill me in?

If staying right except to pass and avoid emergency vehicles was a law and had enforcement behind it, our highways would be significantly more efficient.
Some new purchases, no introduction needed on either of these two albums:   The Suburbs by Arcade Fire   Humbug by Arctic Monkeys
Some new Bandcamp downloads:   Songs of Silt by Oh Man, The Mountain   Bedroom Series EP by Kaela Sinclair   Sleepwalking by Invisible Elephant   The Lights Go Out by Invisible Elephant   As opposed to my usual random browsing through Bandcamp's new releases to find music, this time I relied on reviews from Leonard's Lair to direct me to some really solid releases from talented artists. Oh Man, The Mountain sounds like a more acoustic-focused version of...
