I'm still here, sort of.

I have a child, and one on the way. I don't really do anything anymore, and yet I'm basically OK with that.

Whoa, haven't posted in over a year.

Lots of travel, lots of good shows, lots of really crappy movies.
I hate the movie-going experience these days, and would much rather retreat to my basement with some thai food and a dvd.

Went down to Portland this weekend to check out Devil's Point. the verdict? It's very, very small. Which would be cool if I wasn't smashed into a corner. Still, nice rocking cover of Don Henley's 'Boys of Summer.' Mad props, in the parlance of the youth. Shanghai Tunnel was the same as always, which suits me fine.
Such a lovely town...

Damn, so Dr. Frank, my one and only SG 'Friend' and the reason (okay, not the only reason) I joined cold got fired from this place. That's some cold shit, right there.

I'm pretty excited, as I'm planning a trip to europe for the World Cup and some totally unrelated Croatia time. Still trying to think of where to spend a couple...

Nothing much going on.
Stars at the showbox was nice, but tainted by the sound/mix. Weird keys/electronics completely overwhelmed the guitars and bass, making for a really strange sound. They put on a good show, though, which is more than I can say for the Elected, Blake Sennet's band, which didn't really impress.
I hope to catch November Witch down in...

Come on, Seahawks.


It's gonna happen. It's time. I deserve this; the city deserves this.

Stars on Wed. at the Showbox. Anyone going? Ok, anyone who's reading this?

Tomorrow, the Birthday.
I shall go see Colin Meloy and see if I can get one of them tour EPs of his.

Since I've got to drive a long way, I think drinking heavily is out of the picture. I've still got to work on thu., after all. My wife won't be there. This birthday could certainly stand to add a bit...

Ladies and Gentlemen,
I hope to attend the Camper van Beethoven show in t-town on the 28th, and to go to Portland sometime before that. Thanks to all who have made 2005 a not completely terrible year. It is appreciated, and the steady supply of debate, discussion and boobies that is SG is a big part of that.

Applying for more World Cup tickets - the...

Rat City Rollerderby championship bout last night - Derby Liberation front wins it w/a convincing performance over the Throttle Rockets. Looking forward to seeing the debut of the Rose City roller girls in Portland next week. Any SGs taking part?

Went to Jules Mae's afterwards, which is Seattle's oldest pub. I hadn't been there before, but it's definitely worth a look...

(oops, this was orignally posted as a comment. This site demands careful attention to things that are not boobies, a fact which wasn't clearly explained up front)

Saw the new pornographers on Saturday, but missed the Queers on Sunday. shit.

I will say nothing about the Hurricane because I'll just regret it later. Bloggers must somehow be able to turn off, or at least tune out, shame. Cool.
I'll be at Mt. Saint Helens for the weekend, which looks nice, and reminds me of the wonderfully picturesque, awe-inspiring and yet relatively harmless natural disaster I experienced as a young kid.

Music - saw Cerulean...

ttown:

No, it wasn't in Seattle - it was at the Troubador in L.A.
I had no cash, since I bought a t shirt, and after driving all over the cabbie decided not to charge me a dime.
Did you catch MTX at Graceland (shortly before become El Cor.) on their last tour?

1 month 'till the SG burlesque tour rolls through town...

The release of the new Wolf Parade album's been accompanied by the most impressive amount of hype I've seen in years. I don't think it's Subpop's doing; it's just too widespread. But man, it's a weird position to be in where your debut record garners rave reviews (yay!) and is also supposedly going to Change The Face of Music, or Fundamentally Alter Space-time or some such. 'The Shins will Change Your Life' blog could do a month's worth of posts using nothing but Wolf Parade reviews.
What must it be like to be in England, where at least a dozen albums a year are supposed to have the power to reanimate the dead, cure cancer and settle the question 'Why are we here' once and for all. The bands don't ask for this, but even before the damn record comes out, everyone's got totally unrealistic expectations. Of course, then they move 10,000 units in a week, so it's not exactly life-threatening. Disappointed customers are still customers.

Content. The internet demands content.

It's too hot to write anything even remotely interesting.
