I feel like I’ve been on a long, long trip. Like I’ve stepped out at a rest stop after hours and hours on the road…But really, it’s just that I haven’t slept very well over the past week or so and I'm feeling kind of sick-y. So what else is new?
Most important lesson this week: Type four phasers hurt. A lot.
Triple M and I played another challenging round of Starfleet Battles on Monday night. As much as I adore the game, I don’t think I’ve quite got a grip on it yet…heh. It was quite the blaze of glory I went down in…but compared to the epic shenanigans of the week prior, this was but a blur of photons and speed.
Is there anything in the world better than being a geek? I don’t think so.
Thanks to messiahdivine and cloquewerk for ANOTHER great night of booze, baklava and Baker.
The Death Cab for Cutie / Franz
Ferdinand concert, for those interested, was quite awesome! I pulled my best mod* and arrived in time to grab a beer and a decent spot on the floor. While they are unarguably very EMOtive, the boys of Deathcab can fairly rock out. CEPSUM has…<tries to be diplomatic>poor sound quality</ttbd> so much of the nuance (where they’re strongest) just wasn’t there, but the energy was great. Not surprisingly, FranzF was the best thing about the night. They’re amusing to watch and fun to bounce up and down to. *smiles* I thoroughly enjoyed myself. They played most of Big Hits right off the bat, which I thought was an interesting, if dangerous move. But I underestimated the fans, as nearly every
non-single song that followed got the same frenetic reception.
The crowd was a bit dull in character, but then I’m used to seeing a different set of people, I guess…
A pleasant development is the fact that my desire to be in a band has been seriously rekindled. I was waiting for the day when I got my guitar skills up to snuff (as NOBODY but a chosen few will ever hear me sing and drumming is…*breaks out in hysterical laughter* …not my thing) and therefore did not expect to be in one for a loooooooong time. But it dawns on me now: why not play keyboard? I certainly feel confident in that area, but for some reason never really entertained the possibility…It’s certainly not just for grade 5 recitals and cheese!
I’m dying for the chance to collaborate with other like-minded people so we’ll see where this new development leads…classifieds beware!
