Not too shabby. Stoked it's the weekend and should be a good one. You able to enjoy this weekend?

Me too.  Been a busy (but good) work week and I'm looking forward to doing nothing all weekend.  I'm attending a talk by Neil Gaiman on Sunday and that's my only obligation for the next few days :)

I'd be down to meet up for sure! I think I'm on call next weekend though, so we'd have to be someplace relatively quiet. I'd love to hang though. :)

There are a few really great record stores, the Chinese Rose Garden is pretty neat, but I'm not sure this time of year. The Japanese Garden is pretty cool and last time we went it was around this time of year. Couple really great places to eat depending what you're in the mood for. Powell's Books is pretty cool, Voodoo Donuts is probably worth a visit, but there are better joints around town in my opinion. If there isn't a Killer Burger in Seattle, that's worth a stop!

Good morning, hope you all have a nice weekend. I have to work in a few hours but I get to go see Le Butcherettes finally tonight. Got my ticket, when the store closes I'll head to St. Louis and show up about a half hour after doors to drink, buy merch and rock out I'll be dead tomorrow after 8 hours on my feet, 3 hours in the car (both ways) and a show but it's going to be totally worth it

Fuck, last night was great. Thursday, Touché Amoré, Basement, and Wax Idols. So fucking great. Thursday still got it, I'm so glad I got to see them again. They were refreshed, reinvigorated, and just had so much energy. Wax Idols were such an awesome opener, Basement really impressed me as well. And FINALLY getting to see Touché Amoré was everything I thought it would be. Hell of a great show.
