The older you get, the more it feels like time is speeding up. That, of course, is not true at all. There are still 24 hours in a day and 365 days in a year, but it seems like you can blink and suddenly 15 years have flown by. This week on Stuck In Thee Garage, I played songs from 2003 in hour 2 and it simultaneously felt like they just came out and holy crap, that was a long time ago.
