An Update or Two

Posted in Movies, Music on October 14th, 2019 by James

It’s been awhile since I’ve didn’t an update. Figured it was about time since I’ve got stuff I could mention.

Lets see, movies that we have that stand out is the Joker. Holy smokes, such a great movie. Really enjoyed it. Dark, and not your typical comic book movie.

Saw Rancid few weeks ago. Expensive gig, but we have a great time. Rancid played all of the good stuff. Saw Stiff Little Fingers this past weekend. Great gig, saw some good ol friends. Drank a bit much, woke up with a hang over Saturday.

Saturday morning helped Matt with laying some sod. Hungover and all, but managed to help him. Felt great to help him lay some sod. Feels like it was the least I could do for him. Still sore from that. Saturday evening played poker. Took 11th out of about 30 players. Made some bad calls towards the end. Should have known better. Oh well. Got one more month to make some more points. But should be good for the final table of the year. I do think it’ll be cutting it close, but should be good.

Anyways, that’s all I’ve got for now.

Birthday Weekend

Birthday Weekend

I must say I had a good weekend. Better than expected. Friday, me and Angela got ready, and went to Club Metro to check out Corvid and we saw part of Tragic Black. Corvid put on a great show. Besides that, it was okay. The vibe felt odd with the few people there. Angela was nice enough to drive my drunken ass home.

March 29th – Vegas

Posted in Music on January 11th, 2011 by James

Looks like the Adicts are playing Las Vegas March 26th (Saturday). I’ve been wanting to take a trip down to Vegas. Looks like this might be a damn good reason for a trip on down there.

Corvid Last Night

Posted in Music on September 5th, 2009 by James

Me and Glad went to the Abyss (bar downtown) to see Corvid. It was the first show that Corvid has done. It was pretty good, lots of energy. For a first show, I would have to say they did a good job. It was fun and entertaining. Music wise, I don’t know. It may take some growing on me to really enjoy it. It wasn’t bad by any means, but some songs I thought were a bit long and drawn out. I must say, that Ben seems to have gotten much better with the guitar.

Stupid Car….

Stupid Car....

My week had it’s up and down. Got myself a new cell phone. Got the Google G1 cell phone that I”ve been eyeballing for the past 2 weeks. I dig the phone for the most part. Few complaints about it, but nothing major by any means.

Thursday night me, Glad, and Jayden ran to Smith’s to grab a few needed items. Jumped in the car to come back home, and the car wouldn’t turn over. Tried getting a jump, which was no luck. We had Glad’s dad take us back home. As I was running around wondering what I was gonna do for work in the morning. I remembered that my buddy Matt is a tow truck driver, so I ended calling him for a tow. I’m using my grandma’s truck for the time being to get around. I believe it’s the starter that has gone bad, which is about 150 dollars. Should be easy to replace for the most part, just sucks right now. I have 35 dollars to my name for another few days. We also had Jim over Tuesday and Wednesday night.

Friday night Megan was nice enough to pay for my way to see the Germs play. We saw Negative Charge, Krum Bums, and The Germs. Had a good time for the most part. Burts was packed full of people. All of the bands put on a great set. I wasn’t sure what to expect from the Germs. These older bands try to make a come back, and just do a horrible job.

No fun plans for the next week, just pulling that starter on Tuesday and getting it tested. Then try to come up with the money to get a new starter.

Let the Dominoes Fall

Let the Dominoes Fall

I didn’t know what to think of at first when I heard Rancid’s new album Let the Dominoes Fall. I must say that it’s growing on me now. I’m able to listen to it now, and somewhat enjoy it.

Crazy Week, Lots of Movies

Posted in Movies, Music on May 1st, 2009 by James

Seen abunch of movies over the past week. Tuesday Megan came over which was good. We all went to the Vibrator show. Had an awesome time, but the music was a disappointment. The lead singer/guitar player wasn’t there. So the vocals were shared between the bass, and the drummer. Then they had some new guy on the guitar. Disappointment, yes. Damn good time, yes.

Wow for movies I’ve watched over the past week.

The Wrestler: Awesome, really enjoyed the movie.

The Reader: Still not sure about this movie. I would say that I enjoyed it. I guess it’s worth watching.

The Uninvited: It was entertaining. Not sure about the ending. But I wouldn’t say it was good.

Baghead: -yawn- Something about it, that I enjoyed. What that was, I don’t know. Cause it sounds like a lame movie, and was to a point.

Drunk Drunk Drunk….

Posted in Music on March 14th, 2009 by James

Got nice and drunk last night at Club Vegas. Did the whole carpool thing with Megan and the three of us went to go see Agent Orange. It was great seeing some good local music, old friends, and a few beers. Had a great time last night. Got a bit too drunk, but the hangover wasn’t too bad so that was nice. I was able to make it into work today.

GBH!!!

Woohoo GBH, Krum Bum tonight. I’m not too happy about the price, or the venue that it’s at. But should be a good fun time.
