Now listening to: Swan Lake
It's been a fairly eventful couple of days. Sunday I rousted my ass after only 6 hours of sleep to watch the Steelers' game. I should have slept in, it was brutal. I don't even wanna talk about it. (Much to the relief of Yvonne.) After that game I headed to Trip's and we made our way to Chapel Hill.
Once there we rode around until we found the sushi place and man was that good. It had been too long. Yummy stuff. We had Ben and Jerry's afterward to fulfill the gluttony portion of our day. We then headed to Cat's Cradle to catch the show. The opening band wasn't bad, but also wasn't notable. I don't remember their name.
The second band, The Big Sleep, I liked a lot, enough to buy their cd. It's very good. Trip, of course, loathed them. They are too challenging for him. Lots of feedback and noise, which I love. He needs his rock with training wheels attached. The headliner was The Hold Steady, which I've ranted about on here before. They were excellent, although a little less tight than the last time we saw em. Still pretty damn kickass.
So all told Sunday wasn't too bad. A horrible start, but a strong finish. Monday went fairly well for me. Trip and I grabbed some wings and then went to see Tenacious D and the Pick of Destiny. I love me some D. I do have to admit that the movie could have been a lot better. It has some moments of total rocket sauce, but not near enough. I had hoped for more. I'm giving it a +1 chainmail rating, but it would be lower if the D weren't so damn awesome by themselves.
After we returned to Trip's pad, we watched some tv (How I Met your Mother and The Simpsons) and then I fucking SCHOOLED Trip at hockey. I mean, there are victories and their are ass beatings. This was decidedly the latter.
