Bleh… I’m horrible at this whole blogging thing lately. I’ve been so busy with work lately… I get home and just pass out or I’m so lost in thought about what I’m doing with the websites for the store, I get locked in programming mode.

I’m Baaacck…

January 25, 2011 § Leave a comment

Wow… I’ve been away for a while. First of all, that concert I wrote about last post was amazing – Overkill puts on one hell of a show. Met most of the band after the show too… and got everyone’s autograph on their set-list (courtesy of the drum tech as he was putting away the bass). Missing Dave Linsk’s because he wouldn’t come back out of the bus, but I wasn’t really looking to even get anyone else to sign anything. Guess I’ll go in reverse order from here (if I remember it correctly). Forbidden, I was sort of looking forward to since I knew they had been on hiatus for a while, but I hadn’t really heard much of their stuff prior to the concert. You could tell they hadn’t toured in a while, but they were great, nonetheless. I met their drummer after the show too. He asked if I had any of their albums. I told him I did, but didn’t own them… yet – but I planned on buying most of what I download (which is, honestly, what I plan on doing, eventually). Of course, he wasn’t too happy about that, but he wasn’t a dick about it like some people I know – just told me the next time he saw me, I better have at least one Forbidden album. Evile was way better than I expected live. I was hanging around some older guys (probably mid-40s) who were mainly just there to see Overkill – they kept complimenting Evile’s guitarists. Gamma Bomb seemed to be a surprise to a lot of the audience – every time the singer would hit one of his high notes, people would look up with an amazed look on their face. I kind of expected more of Bonded By Blood – being named after an Exodus album, I’d think better. One thing I have to say about them is the singer does sound a lot like the albums in a live setting. That’s about it for the concert. I got trashed near the end (only drank during Overkill) and ended up having to wait there before I could drive home – which is actually the only reason I had the change to meet the bands. Gotta love small venues… every concert I’ve gone to at Firestone has led to me meeting bands.

Awake at 6 am… Again!?

September 29, 2010 § Leave a comment

Well, it’s almost 6 am and I can’t sleep… 3rd time this week I’ve stayed up all night. Wish I could figure out how to shut my brain up – especially since the stuff going though my head isn’t worth worrying about. But let’s see… our air conditioning keeps freezing up (but that’s my parents’ problem) because there’s a freon leak somewhere in the system, and ideas keep popping into my head for that website I started “building” last time I posted (which I will probably be changing the name of soon).

WordPress it is! And other Random Thoughts…

September 21, 2010 § Leave a comment

So, I have decided I will be moving to WordPress. I’ve come to realize the blog doesn’t have to look like I want it to – it’s everyone else who has to deal with it, so ha! Take that, readers! No idea how often I plan on posting here though. It probably wont be a daily thing (or even weekly), but I’m going to try to put my thoughts into writing a bit more than I have in the past – no matter how random they may be. Welcome to blogging, ‘Shaggy.’

Blogger or WordPress?

September 19, 2010 § Leave a comment

As with most people, I am currently looking for a new place for my blogging “needs.” Previously, I have been semi-blogging on Google’s Blogger, but just want to look at other options. So far, Blogger and WordPress are the only platforms I have checked out and there are a lot of things I like about both – Blogger has it’s endless supply of free themes, WordPress has it’s aesthetically pleasing dashboard, and both are fairly simple to use. One thing I do not like about WordPress, however, is the lack of themes – the current set available is a bit boring for my tastes. That being said, I will most likely be making the move here anyway – maybe even moving away from the “free version” eventually.

Where Am I?
