I tried to ride out to the Leave Mags in Studio City just to Hector it out, even though they're closed. Sun was beating against my arms and I could not make out heads or tail from the zsony earbuds where my Sprint Navigator was telling me to go. I can make out the instruction on the street, but once i enter the highway, nil. I don't think a "noise cancelling" device will make much difference either.
Stopped at a favorite watering hole in Glendale. Had a Deer Slayer, working on a punt of Newcastle. Listening to some funky dance music.
