Soundtracks For Summer: Movin' Right Along

Part 29 in my ongoing "Soundtracks For Summer" Series

Man, where did summer go? It's like just yesterday it was June, and tomorrow it's already September! I hate time, it's a lousy dimension.

Screw it, let's put on some traveling music.

I am about to shame myself by admitting that The Muppet Movie is the one Muppet movie I HAVEN'T seen all the way through. But if it makes you feel any better, I've seen all the other ones. Yes, even Muppets From Space.

I know, I need to get on that, but for now let's focus on the song. It's about you and your best friend driving across America, not caring how you get there since the beauty is in the drive itself. I haven't been able to do that much this summer since I now have an actual job. That pays me money.

But I was able to take a short road trip just this past Sunday to that Resorts Casino in the Aqueduct Racetrack up there in Queens. Just me and a good friend of mine driving the half hour into crazyville just to go to a casino buffet and maybe take in a few slot machines while we're at it. Even for a Sunday afternoon there was a good chance that my buddy and I were the youngest people in the entire casino that weren't already working there. All in all, for $20 it was a pretty decent buffet. They had a nacho bar, that alone says "awesome."

It's too bad that I didn't take any pictures, but if you've seen one casino filled with sad old people sitting at machines that emit sounds that they can actually hear, you've seen them all. If there was one thing I've learned, it's that Video Baccarat is something that exists. And that it's popular as hell.

That's it for this installment folks, see you in September!
