Tales From The Drop Box Episode 120, has several tracks from Canadian punk rock bands. All of them are from Ontario. I have no control over how that coincidence happened. It just did. Perhaps divine intervention (as you will see if you click the link it is also a really good Matthew Sweet song). I also think, because of the confluence of Canadian punk rock, that you are going to find this episode a little more aggressive than the past couple of episodes. So, if you like your Tales From the Drop Box to rock your day…this episode will surely do that. No particular reason for the change, it just is.
In keeping with a recent theme (see Episode 119) about the importance of voting, if you are not registered to vote, you need to get going and get that done. California makes it very easy for everyone to register:
The deadline to register or re-register to vote for any election is 11:59:59 p.m. Pacific Time on the 15th calendar day before that election. So, for the November 6th election this year, your deadline to register online is Mon Oct 22, 2018 or by mail postmarked by Mon Oct 22, 2018.
To register online you will need:
- Your California driver license or California identification card number,
- The last four digits of your social security number, and
- Your date of birth.
Your information will be provided to the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to retrieve a copy of your DMV signature.
If you do not have a California driver license or California identification card, you can still use apply to register to vote by completing an online interview by 11:59:59 p.m. Pacific Time on the 15th calendar day before an election.
If you are 16 or 17 years old, you can use the online registration application to pre-register to vote.
See how easy that is? You are now just a couple of mouse clicks away from enjoying one of the truly great benefits of being a citizen.

I called the clinic and they said it was a three-week wait ‘But the doctor ’ll give you something just to get you through the day.’ I’m scared, I’ve never felt like this before… ‘Cos he’s an underground undercover agent for the CID, CID, CID got a loaded 44 walking armory store . . .
