The Linn story is awesome! Some slippery roads, the nervous audio geek and his happy customer, and 
of course a little violence thrown in for a true NYC-in-Glasgow experience.

I also like the snippet at the end of the very wordy blog piece linked earlier, Lou Reed sitting 
alone ordering a pizza with "extra garlic but not too much garlic." A classic wise-guy setup on the 
one hand, but also a show of faith in the pizza guy to get it right.
