Happy yesterday-was-my-birthday to me!
Upgrading from an iPhone 4. This should feel like trading in a Prius for a Tesla Model S.
One of the world’s most prestigious country clubs has a giant mouthwash dispenser in the men’s room and I have no idea why.
the falls! (at Niagara Falls (Canadian Side))
We’re committing touristicide.
Cross another one off the bucket list! Marc Maron put on a great show for an intimate (that means small) crowd. Then we gave him a Grape Pie. Mwahahahaha. “With this pie, I thee curse.” (at Helium Comedy Club)
"The Slash story is exactly the way I remember it. Dug this photo out of the archives, circa 1992."
My brother posted this to my Facebook wall yesterday, after I posted my April 15th story
That photo conjures up some great memories. He was probably teaching me to play The Lemon Song or Radar Love or something else equally awesome. That was his bedroom at the time. He’d later move out and it would become my bedroom. Those guitars both eventually became mine as well. I owe him a lot. A lot.
It’s that guy from The State! (at The Comedy Club)
Beneath The Stars (by Steelopus)
The Perseids were a bit disappointing last night. I awoke and went out at 3:30am to drive to my favorite star-gazing spot south of the city. It was quite chilly with a stiff breeze so I only stayed for about an hour. I only saw ~25 meteors, and none were very dramatic. The crescent moon with Venus and Jupiter was pretty, but far too bright.
Oh well. Now I’ll look forward to the Geminids on the night of December 13th. It will be a new moon during that show so that will certainly help with the darkness.
Bed head, warm sun, chirping birds, freshly blended Strawberry Cucumber smoothie, patio, flourishing garden, Midlake providing the soundtrack… That’ll do, Saturday morning. That’ll do. (Taken with Instagram at Casa de Lopez)
A light rain began to fall at 1:45. We finished playing at 2. Then the real show began as all hell broke loose and the sky opened up dumping a reported 3” of rain in under an hour. During that hour we moved all of our equipment through the storm - about 100’ from the tent under which we played to the van parked in the lot next door. Anyway. Hello. I’m super wet.

Last weekend was so good.
I wish I could have paused time in this particular moment and just existed in it for a while longer.
SLC meets ROC in NYC.
We just had a great lunch with Jon!
I’m so glad I finally got to meet him (and that none of the bad things you people have told me about him were actually true).
Not a bad place to have a wedding*!
