- I was driving in
traffic (on a Sunday... of course that means bumper to
bumper in LA) and I opened my door as I always do
when I'm going this slow because the car has no air
conditioning. Man if you could just rebuild that car
from scratch and add what you want, right?
- Oh wait.
- I realized this is
probably a view most people never see, so I switched
my GPS to camera and shot a few minutes. Figured it
would be an interesting thing to watch.
- Uhh, so was it? I
have literally dragged my hand on the highway while in
traffic on these freeways. The car is SO low and the
door opens so wide... it's just eerie. I mean, I'm

power. I think I know what to do but it's an easy
4-hour job just to test it. I'll have some time next
month to address that.
- In the meantime
though... life moves on. Last night's 259th event for

passenger's side door won't unlock?
FUCKING DELOREANS) and we move onto Monday! Crazy
