Music Music Music
I love music. I have many interests, (too fucking many, ask my wife) but music is up there in the top 5. I play, or used to play, the drums. I always have the radio on in the car. I used to listen to music at work but I'm not allowed anymore because people in machine shops are fucking babies, but that's another rant altogether. So in my shotgun approach to life, I bounce around from hobby to hobby and back again. I'll be really into photography (hence the name of this blog), and then the new CycleWorld shows up in the mail and I'm all tweaked on motorcycles again. Well this past weekend was Lollapalooza. I've been to Lallapalooza in the past but I missed it this year out of sloth/poverty. That brings me to the latest hobby hop. I'm working on the garage, preparing for the final move and I hear a report from Lollapalooza on the old walkman and Richard Milne starts talking about the Pixies and Dinosaur Jr. THE PIXIES AND DINOSAUR JR.! O.K., now I'm pissed. I knew there were going to be 60 ish bands there but I heard names like Liz Phair, Weezer, etc.... who gives a rats ass. Dinosaur Jr. is one of my all time faves. They were actually disbanded and J. Mascis had a new deal with a new name blah,blah,blah...Well apparently the original lineup is playing some dates and might start recording. Man, I feel left out. I checked out the full lineup and there were some cool bands playing I would have loved to see. Oh, well I would have baked my brain out there anyway. After all it was a for sure 102 degrees. On a lighter note, someone hooked me up with a kickass Sansui 7070 reciever for the house so I can put Pop's old 5050 in the garagemobile. If you know what these are you will think this is cool, if you dont, forget it. Nerdy stereo shit. I'll put up some music links when I get a chance. In summation, I am ready to rock and roll children. And rock and I shall.
