catching up on shows new to me

I dont have cable, and I dont plan on getting it anytime soon. If I hear about a great show, I'll rent it or download it these days. Right now, I am catching up on "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia",based on my sister Thea's recommendation, which I find to be the most hilarious show since Arrested Development.

okay, Rapha has officially jumped the shark. They should just stick to jerseys.

one of the best concerts I have ever been to. Although I have mixed feeling about their most recent album, they are still brilliant live. The sound was perfect, the energy was extremely high, and maintained throughout their 3 hour set. They did not play any new songs until at least 4-5 songs into their opening song, and when they did, the songs fit perfectly, and seemed more refined than their album versions. They played songs off all of their albums, Tennessee Fire and At Dawn had light representation, maybe 1 or 2 songs from those, the majority of songs were from "It Moves", "Z" , and "Evil Urges". One of the encore songs was "Cobra" from the EP Chocolate and Ice, which is 24 minutes on the EP. They cut it back a bit, but it was still probably 12 minutes and still epic.

dirt dirby

coming soon. Is it possible to drop 10 lbs in two weeks? probably not. Good experience though. I need to fix up my cross bike, for one thing get some knobby tires for it rather than the semi-slicks I have been running on it for the past two years. And perhaps an upgrade to paul touring brakes would be in order , my avid's dont have much stopping power.

got a wind shell, short sleeve shirt, shorts, and pants from Nau right before they closed down their clearance sale. I am very impressed with the fit and quality, and the style is top-notch, not so impressed with the made-in-china on a few pieces. But I am glad they are being resurrected by Horny Toad.
