My Car Stereo is Half Done…
Well, I did it; even though I wasn’t 100% sure that I could, I did.
I installed my new car stereo (aka head unit) this weekend and boy was that fun. I ordered the unit from Crutchfield and got all of the mounting hardware and wiring that I would need for about the same price I would have paid locally for just the radio. Anyway, I say that I’m half done because in Ford’s infinite wisdom when they created that 99 and 2000 Mustang, they decided that you may just want to listen to a cassette tape and a CD, and just in case they put two units into the dash of my car. Well when you take out two units and put only one back in, you end up with a small void, roughly the size of a car stereo… imagine that. So my next task is to figure out how to put what I want to put in that hole. Ok, that didn’t sound right, I have a police scanner I want to install there and I just have to figure out how I’m going to do it.
Since I’m obviously not in a major blog writing mood at the moment I’ll leave the rest to a few pictures for those of you that no longer have an imagination left to use. One more thing, if you ever install one in a Mustang and want to bypass the amp, the sunofabitch is under where the CD was.

Working on a Saturday?
That’s right, I get to work tomorrow. I know what you’re thinking; poor Dave has to work on a Saturday. Seriously though, I think this is probably my third Saturday that I’ve worked since starting there and I’ve been there over a year. Compare that to the every Saturday I worked at my old job and I’d say I’m good; plus tomorrow is pure overtime.
I see they released Dr. Jack Kevorkian from jail today. Well I see no reason for Jack to be sitting on his duff when there are problems out there that need to be solved. I say the first thing we do is send Jack over to Hollywood to handle the party bitches. You know, the Lindsey’s and Paris’ and Britney’s. I’d give the girls a good chance at rehab and if not, then it’s time to go see the doctor. That’d solve my stupid news I have to watch all the time.
Holy shit, June just kind of snuck in there didn’t it? It was just May and now I look at my calendar and it’s June. Well, my calendar still says May because I’m a lazy bastard, but my computer says it’s June and if the music and porn box says it’s June, then it must be. I ordered my new car stereo last night and will hopefully have it by midweek so I can install it and start enjoying a shitload of music in the car. My first task will be to burn all of the Beastie Boy CD’s to one mp3 CD so I have the entire catalog in my car at all times. I still haven’t ordered the other shit for my car, but I am sure I will since I am getting my tuition reimbursement check on Monday.
