A Show In Honor of My Spontaneously Combusted Car: Cars and Fire


I feel I owe everyone an explanation for my absence last week. After leaving the Troubadour and walking to where my car had been parked, I discovered it was missing. I called the police, only to find it had been towed because it was a "traffic hazard". I figured they towed me for being too far from the curb (which I wasn't and proceeded to tell them). It was then brought to my attention that perhaps it was too close to a hydrant, there had been a car fire and if I blocked the path to the hydrant I would have been towed. Considering my car was at a meter, it seemed that if I was too close to a meter it was the fault of the city for putting the meter too close to the hydrant. However, with a bit more research into the actual situation, it was discovered that it was my car that had been on fire...which I had to concede, was a traffic hazard deserving of being towed (I might not be so willing to roll over on this had my insurance company not covered the tow).

Here's where it gets even crazier, apparently, the guy who called 911 is friends with my friend Matt. I had told Matt about my car and a day or two later his friend calls him and tells him about this crazy car fire he saw and even took pictures of. This is how I am able to include the above photo of my car on fire. Insanity!

So, today, in honor of my former car the theme of this show is Cars and Fire.
