It's in the hands of experts now

I sent an email to the people at Sharpie today explaining my autograph plight. I described my concerns with the industrial Sharpie (the writing seems to rub off of metal) and asked them what marker they would recommend for my particular task. Now all I can do is wait. I like to imagine there is a serious Sharpie expert out there who has been waiting their entire life to tackle this exact problem. Godspeed, Sharpie expert, godspeed.

Shawn posted a list of songs on his blog last week and commented on what memories they elicit. I've been spending a lot of time trying to decide if I have similar song memories. Only a couple songs immediately come to mind and it always surprises me that those feelings are so specific. In general, songs tend to provide me with a collage of memories that get added to as I revisit the music year after year.

I will share one specific memory, though. "Run-Around" by Blues Traveler will always remind me of my last night in Michigan before I left for college (I was the first of my friends to leave town that summer). It played on the radio as we drove around and everybody sang along. It wasn't anything earth shattering but it was a fun and I remember thinking that the group of us would probably never do this again. We never have.

So if you're inclined, leave your favorite song memory in the comments below.
