This isn't in tune with the spirit of the blog, but someone has to say it: People in Manhattan are out of control with their umbrellas. It is never necessary, no matter how important you are, to carry around a big, patio furniture sized umbrella. That's one of my biggest pet peeves. Get off the sidewalk!
Oh, but then all you have to do is put this song on your ipod and who cares anymore? Lay Low by My Morning Jacket.
