Concert 2 of the year!

by on Feb.20, 2011, under Uncategorized

Last Wed. went back to the 9:30 club to see Dumstaphunk, Fishbone and Slightly Stoopid.. I was mainly going for the two opening bands, and it turned out I was correct. Dumstaphunk was a great group of guys who obviously have played together for years.. they were super tight, with a GREAT bass player and keyboard player who kept the funk going for their whole set.
Fishbone was their regular selves.. Completely AWESOME! Tore the place up, and was a complete blast to watch.. kept us jumping the whole time, wish they had been the headliner band so they could have played for longer.
Slightly Stoopid I have never really listened to.. they were incredibly talented (the two lead guys switched guitar/bass with no noticeable difference in performance) BUT, their music wasn’t to my taste.. a bit too much frat boy spring break music I would call it.
Overall.. 2 months into 2011, 2 concerts.. time to find my next show!

I don’t lack in execution, I lack in inspiration

I LOVE the idea of working on a start-up idea, I just lack that idea. I guess that’s why the real money is made by the folks with the idea!

Concerts are a go!

So, one of the things I wanted to do more of this year is hit up a few live shows. I believe my original statement was at least 1 a month.. so, while I failed in January, I already have been to 1 in February, and have a second scheduled for next Wed (so I am averaging out to fine ;)
Earlier this week went to see Cowboy Mouth on the encouragement of friends who said they are not to be missed. Man, where they right!
The front man/drummer could seriously get a room filled with ANYONE to have a good time.. just a great personality with control over the room in the first minute and not letting it go until he wanted to.. amazing show to see. In the aftermath, I have listened to quite a few songs of theirs, but to be honest, they lack the draw the live show has in a pretty big way.. so, while It’s unlikely I will purchase any of their cd’s.. I will make a HUGE effort to make sure I see them whenever they are in town from now on, and encourage you to do so as well!
(If interested, the show next week is Slightly Stoopid, who I don’t really care about/know about, and Fishbone and Dumstaphunk, both of which I am PSYCHED to see)

I ended up with a Chrome Laptop!

by on Feb.01, 2011, under Uncategorized

So, the UPS man stopped by today with a few packages.. the first was a new pair of shoes my wife had bought me, and was expected.. the second box, I had no idea what it was. I opened it up, and all I saw was “warning: lithium battery inside”. I had NO idea what was in the box, until i had it mostly unwrapped, and then suddenly realized, that even though it had been a few months since I had registered, *poof* I had a brand new Chrome Laptop!
Been using it for a few hours now.. I really like the keyboard.. having just a touch pad with no buttons is taking me a while to figure out.. I LOVE th two finger scrolling (as every Mac user wonders why windows hasn’t copied that feature) but having to click the touch pad still seems odd.
In terms of overall form factor, I kept considering getting a netbook, and this feels small enough and with good enough battery life to ensure that I don’t need one. I DO wish it had an SD slot for uploading photos from my camera, but it does have a USB plug, so I guess I can use that in a pinch. Beyond that, I’ll report back later how it feels to utilize a laptop that only has a browser ;)
