1. Getting an Iced Tea from Coffee Bean
    Post-breakfast. It's tactile and connects me, even on days I feel disconnected. It's just far enough from the house that the trip is done at a good pace regardless of traffic and there's a good size parking lot. As carefree as it can get in L.A.
  2. Commuting to an OC/IE show
    I embrace traffic in these cases because it gives me time to go over my set (these are usually longer 15+ minute sets, as opposed to L.A.'s less generous set times. I always get to listen to vood mixes/albums and can occasionally throw in a chain restaurant visit. On the ride back, I get to decompress.
