It's been a weird last 48 hours

...It's been a while that I have updated this thing. Things really haven't been the same since Hurricane Ike hit, and that trend is continuing.

I wanted to keep like a blog update from the events leading up to and after the Hurricane, but that went nowhere, obviously. Maybe I will still type up my notes that kept from the night of the storm, maybe not...we will see...

One would think that I would be happy starting a week and a day off from work, but I am really not....

Tonight sucked a bit. Stayed at work late (my fault, I volunteered), came home, then was going to see The Butthole Surfers at the Meridian. I left the house late, around 9:40 or so, I went to get gas since I was riding on fumes. Then I had to go pull money from an ATM, which took two attempts at two different banks, and then proceeded toward the Meridian. I get there, only to find a packed place. I had to park about two or three blocks away. Never seen the Meridian like that before. I walk my way to the door when I find that it is sold out. Shit! Oh well....off to the store to get some Shiner Black and drink at home....

Believe it or not, that whole sequence took me about an hour. An hour I will never get back....

I don't know what tomorrow is going to bring, being my first day off. I might get all of the house work knocked out. Hit the yard and all that good stuff, but we will see. Being off from work, I should have plenty of time to do updates, at least I hope so!

Ok, that's all for now...

Man, I had no idea that you tried to go see the Butthole Surfers. Like you said it was weird but good. At one point the guitarist got pissed and threw his guitar down and the band walked out except for Gibby Hanes staying up at the mic and sharing a story about his trip to the doctor for a colonoscopy. Then the band came out and started playing again. Basically they were not pleased with the lighting and with mics not working and no stage hands helping out. Gibby had to let the guitarist use one of his and he was singing and playing and then a stage hand came up trying to replace it in the middle of the song and that guy go so pissed and threw his guitar down and then Gibby just motioned him to leave the stage. They were great. Too bad they didn't get the lighting they wanted and kept asking for. They just had two orange lights on them the whole show. But it wasn't dark like Team Sleep. They had a video projector showing a lot of random images. Anyway, I was hoping to see you there. We left before the show ended and didn't get to hear him say doing it in Texas. I wonder how much longer they played. They played for a long time it seemed. Well, maybe next time. In the mean time I hope you are enjoying your vacation and I hope to create some good stuff with you soon at the studio. Take it easy and I'll see you at Don's Place. Much love! Keep up the blogs, they are cool.
