Five for August 16th.
Happy birthday Mom. Happy 69th to my mom, who has endured more stressful bullshit over this past year than anyone should ever have to deal with and somehow remained level-headed enough to roll with the punches and emerge largely unscathed on the other side. Here’s to a much better next twelve months.
Last night. Fun evening at Foam catching the Jag-Wires debut gig (songs about The Rockford Files and Booger’s “High On Stress” t-shirt from Revenge of the Nerds won the night) and catching up with a bunch of friends I hadn’t seen in awhile.
Eleven. Bummer news about the best music ‘zine this city has seen in a long time, but congrats to Evan for bringing it back from the brink of irrelevance and completely knocking it out of the park the last few years. It was great while it lasted.
Cool stuff. Thrasher t-shirt for Jane, donuts at work, Dennis Enarson Down the Street video debut, got my Epiphone back, 78K+ pageviews, homemade chili, Hell Night article in the RFT.
Tuesday soundtrack. Cactus, Voivod, Leaf Hound, Meshuggah, Poison Idea, GBH, Neurosis, Hermano, Kowloon Walled City, Shadows Fall, Burning Witch.
