Vintage LOLCats

[music | The Reverend Horton Heat - Bad Reputation]

Natalie and I were at an antique store a couple of months ago and found some vintage postcards with lolcats on 'em. I like seeing things that represent a straight line from our past to our present, especially if it's something as random as lolcats. 100 years ago, people thought it was amusing to take pictures of cats and caption them in humorous ways. I can only hope that these were funnier 100 years ago than they are today, otherwise these copywriters should have been hanged.

The World is Against Me Today

Message from xrayspx at 12:06:20
I had the slowed drive ever today. I literally at one point was stuck behind a garbage truck, which was in turn behind a cement mixer.

But after I got in, and got in the garage, (where I had to wait for a woman with a walker to cross in front of me, WALKER), I was parking on the roof and there was this old man with his hood up.

Message from $wife at 12:07:11
yes, I'm here. Sorry you had a slow drive in

Happy Square Root Day

I noticed this morning that the two digit year is the product of the day and the date, then "oh yeah, it's 3/3", square root. Spiffy.

So it looks like 5 years to the next one, and then 11 years from there.

Reverend Horton Heat @ the Roxy, Boston 11-13-2008

[music | Saul Williams - Skin of a Drum]

Deja-vu. Almost exactly a year after the last trip to the Roxy to get Religion, we're back with the Reverend and Nashville Pussy. Aside from me losing my toenail last year, I think I had just as much fun.

Mediæval Bæbes in E. Hartford, CT, Halloween (eve)

[music | David J. - Frosted Glass]

Let's get one thing straight from the outset. I refuse to keep pasting "Mediæval Bæbes" because I'm too stupid to learn how to make a swell "æ". I am changing to Mediaeval Baebes forthwith.

Nine Inch Nails, Manchester NH

[music | Einstürzende Neubauten - Selbstportrait mit Kater]

I'm way behind on uploading photos for shows, like everything since Vega$ pretty much, and even then I've only put up like half of those. In any case I wanted to get these out for several reasons:

A:) There's a fuckton of them. I took 91 pictures that were good enough for Flickr. If I didn't do it now, I wouldn't ever bother.
B:) There were a handful of my friends there who weren't able to bring cameras and I was psyched that someone else might actually want to see these.
C:) Trent. Fucking. Reznor.
D:) I'm not going to sleep any time soon.

Here we go

Rasputina at the Paradise!

[music | Velvetina Underground - Rusty The Black Skatemaker's Death Song]

Rasputina is always a good show, though I'm still waiting for one of their shows to match my first show with Zoe Keating and Jonathan TeBeest at Pearl St. There were some surprises tonight too, and I make some demands.

Squirrel Nut Zippers + HUMANWINE @ Paradise Boston 7-18-2008

Late late update.

Natalie and I were very happy to see these guys touring this year. Squirrel Nut Zippers is fun, the Dise is a fun place to see bands (as long as I can stake out my pole early), so it was a no brainer. We got lucky, for this show was greatness.

Pictures, sure
