Celtic Woman

[music | Yo-Yo Ma / Edgar Meyer Mark O'Connor - Misty Moonlight Waltz]

Celtic Woman? Really, you sure? I'll admit that this one was all for Natalie initially, but I'm really glad I went, it was fun, they are super talented, and the entire ensemble was really entertaining. And when it gets down to it, I just really love watching talented people do whatever it is they do. They'll start making it into my mix now I'm sure.

Holy memory lane batman

[music | Ella Fitzgerald - They Can't Take That Away From Me]

Today another admin and I were (briefly) talking about how we're surprised either of us can walk because of skateboarding. He's some young punkass who would probably panic if someone threw him a vert skate and said "ride this, down that"...That's what I'm guessing anyway. So sit back and watch an old-timer pick shit out of his ear and tell you younguns how it used to be.

Dresden Dolls

[music | Regina Spektor - Bon Idee ]

This show was kind of iffy from the get go, since Dresden Dolls were one of two opening bands for Panic! at the Disco. The other was the Hush Sound, which was actually entertaining and the crowd seemed really into it, especially for the opener-to-the-opener. Combined with the fact that it was July 4th and at the most crowded place in the state that day (Hampton Beach).

Boston Symphony Pops ft. Aimee Mann

[music | The Smiths - Shakespeare's Sister]

This was really cool. The first half of the performance was the Pops doing pieces from "unconventional" composers, Bjork, Elvis Costello, and a John Williams piece.

After the intermission they had Aimee Mann with her band, backed by the Pops, which was really cool to hear. Keith Lockhart seemed really into it and it was even more impressive if you think about how they had to coordinate the arrangement with an existing tour schedule. Cool stuff.

I made it back from Detroit with only a couple hours to spare to catch a nap and a shower before heading out for this one.

RevCo, Ministry and, dammit, PIG!

Just got back from RevCo & Ministry show at the Palladium. RevCo sounded really really good, the sound was good, they played well, the new singer was good, and described by Luc Van Acker as "He's sexy, He's Canadian, He's Josh Bradford". The opening-opening band was Pitbull Daycare, and I think it was generally accepted that we could have done without them.

MacBook 13", very first thoughts

The new MacBook came in today, and I've been tooling around on it for the last couple hours.

Good:
-- Speed seems good

-- I toyed with my Treo 700w and can shoot pictures across, that is about all.

-- New Trackpad drivers woo yay, it's nice.

Bad:
-- The magnetic power cord will take getting used to. If you pull it straight, it's almost impossible to unplug, however if you breathe on it funny from an angle, it shoots across the floor.
