LOUD NOISES

You know what really grinds my gears? Commercials that are way louder than the show you’re watching. There is a convertible cruising through outer space right now.. we have the technology to normalize volume. 

Now that that’s out of the way.. put on some background music.. and try to forget that it’s Monday. Full disclosure this post was supposed to go up this morning but I got side tracked.

I went down to Richmond Friday night with my buddy who we’ll call “Mick” to catch the kick off of Darkest Hour’s tour. Show was at the canal club which was a cool spot. Probably the smallest Darkest Hour show I’ve been to which was actually a bonus. There bands were all rock solid. U.S. Bastards was one of the openers, a heavy punk rock trio of badassery. They were good fun, found out after that the singer/guitarist is the lead guitarist from Gwar.. also badass.

I saw Byzantine for the first time and I’m hooked, they put on an awesome set, I’ll be checking them out again as soon as possible.

Darkest Hour.. what can I say they’re my favorite. They always kill it, and it was nice to hear two guitars this time (last tour opener featured one guitar and one Lonestar trying to get his rig working)!

Somehow.. after getting home way past my bedtime the Boss and I managed a fairly productive Saturday. I even fixed one of several leaky faucets! I’m pretty sure there’s only 2 left that leak and then I can tackle our shower valves that suck!! I also screwed up and double filtered one of those pictures.. I.. I’m not going to fix it.

My brother brought the Boy this super cool toy holder/body hider. He’s a fan. In case you were wondering, yes he did immediately rip everything off of the shelves and they remain empty.

Sunday was much lazier but still a good day. The boy napped, woke up from his nap, and continued his nap sitting up like an old fart. Genetics. Did some shopping.. some eating.. you know.. Sunday.

That’s it.. that’s all I’ve got. Aren’t you glad I haven’t been posting every day? You would be dying of boredom right now. More projects soon.
