    Into part 2 of my 3 part hectic August. Having just had a week in Austin and another in LA for holiday, I was home for 2 days and now currently in the Venetian in Vegas for a conference. 4 days after I get back I'm.off to Belgium for the Formula 1. Sounded a good idea at the time, but this conference slap bang  in the middle is taking its toll on body clock. Still, Vegas never sleeps, right....?

    You probably should be at one of those Sunday Pools where everyone is getting wasted. Get out of your hotel room!

    Been trying to see Def Leppard for 20 years and never had the chance, seems they are playing tonight 15 minutes from.my hotel. Fuck yes. 
    I got to hang out backstage with them, Poison, and Cheap Trick.  That was a pretty fun night and an amazing show. I have to give it to Lep...  they put on a much better show than I ever expected.  Enjoy the hell out of it, bro.

    That even cooler, if not a bit bittersweet. Glad to hear you got it checked off though.  Sounds like they are still great live.

    So I just found out who Chris Bourassa is this week and I am hardcore fangirling over his work. Also half the links to his older stuff are dead so if anybody knows where I can find Died Again, you should let me know.

    Tonight, KNOTFEST with my youngest. Behemoth, Gojira, the goddamn Danes from Volbeat are up now and killing it (saw them open for Metallica before they took off.  So much better live). Then Slipknot.

    I have to say.. those corn-fed motherfuckers can put on a show. That was awesome.  Almost made up for me missing them on Ozzfest 20 years ago in the same ampitheater. A solid 2 hours and they sounded great. \m/   You would think everyone there was from Iowa.   

    My son even got a pick that two drunk dudes couldnt find. Should be a 17th birthday present he remembers for a while. 2 rows behind the pit at his favorite band. He just didnt get in the pit, but he did at Hatebreed so that was awesome to see.

    Finished binge watching season 3 of The Handmaid's Tale.

    Despite the actual (and acute) horror of the show, there's just something absolutely entrancing about watching June face the worst and come out the other end. She might be fucked up, she might have breakdowns, she might (and does) make awful decisions, but she still always reaches out to the humanity in us in the end, and it's inspiring, both as a real person and as someone who plays a character who is similarly very broken.

    I also love all the supporting characters, the various bad guys (hard to just pick one, but I do think Aunt Lydia takes the cake for me, especially with how they explored her character this season), the music, the cinematography (this cannot be overstated, the cinematography of this show is fucking gorgeous), the mirror to real life, and how it's able to weave a story that not only resonates with you in the moment, but stays with you and makes you think about it, oftentimes for days.

    My only rant is some of their pop culture music choices they play at various scenes get stuck in my head so flipping bad. Right now it's Heaven Is A Place On Earth, a song I can never hear the same way again after the show. 

    Probably just gonna have to re-watch it all again right away. Thank god I waited until the season wrapped up to start it up.

    And yet you couldnt come to CT..  you summanabitch. 

    Did you bring the little one(s) on the trip or just you?  I still need to get my kids back to Okinawa and then do a European Vacation a la Griswolds.

    Aww @Talamond I'm glad you're doing well buddy.  Last I heard from you, you were on the up and up so I'm sincerely glad the trend continued :)

    Hey Cooper, guess what: your/my phone carrier has free tethering, so that was a huge and instrumental bonus until I could afford Cox.

    Torinn, you had some controversial ideas, but I knew where they came from and I tried to carry the intent forward with better execution, and it seemed to work. Rave on you for having fantastic seeds of ideas (the Academy needs better representation of Targ for baby Targs, Harbs need to know they're important and not just Not-Dawnblade, etc)

    Farrah, if Hashan doesn't become the go-to city in the next six months, you're dead to me. Targ is mine and will be fine under Soth, but Hashan deserves more than old Achaea memes.

    Looking forward to your downfall. If not by Deuc than by the collective rage of Targies and Targ-turned-vengeful-Mhaldorians.

    Also, Mhaldor, please wreck Farrah (and no one else, so she knows) out of principle. She deserves it. All the rumors of things she said about your mothers are true.
    Prepare to Qualify.
    Blast off!!
    Body blow! Body blow! Uppercut! Knock him out!
