The Weekend

Caught up on TV shows.
Listened to music.
Drank a lot of coffee.
Jett had two friends over.
Went to a party.
Drank coffee stout.
Smoked brats and wings.
Watched The Steelers win.
Went out to lunch with the family.

Pool is being closed today. Sad.

I Kind Of Want To Go

Tickets go on sale Monday. Anyone want to go with me?

Landlady at Off Broadway Oct 28

Landlady will be playing at Off Broadway with Rubblebucket on Tuesday October 28.

There are things that remind me of Arcade Fire. And things that remind me of TV on the Radio. Both in good ways.

So go check them out.

Take a listen:

Music Today

When updating my iPod, I must have had it set to put display the songs in order of title. So I am starting at A and  going in order.

It's an interesting way to listen.

Sonic Highways

The new Foo Fighters show on HBO is awesome.

The first episode take splice in Chicago and features, Rick Neilson, Steve Albini and Naked Raygun.

I had no idea that Naked Raygun's name was a play on the Sex Pistols name.

The stories that were told on the show were very cool.

The song that came from their stop in Chicago was also cool. It was interesting to listen to the lyrics and know so much of where they came from.

Jett's Short Story

Jett wrote a short story in school. I know I am biased, but I think it was really good. Several parts made me laugh.

Happy Birthday Elias!

I can't believe that my oldest son turns 21 today. It will be completely bizarre when he pops up at a bar I happen to be at.

So wish him a happy birthday.

Happy Birthday Elias. We love you.

I Don't Get It

I am all for protesting.

I get the idea of mass protests in multiple places to expand the word and garner more attention to the issue.

But I don't understand some of the places that the protests happened yesterday.

I get city hall. (government)

I get at the Rams game (to be in front of media and mass amounts of people)

I do not get Wal Mart or Plaza Frontenac.
