Sheesh, it's already September. Time flies when you're old. My last few posts were written in a pretty foul state of mind...my demeanor was meaner. I'm not feeling nearly as bad as I was. A p4 2.0AGHz drives my new main machine. I'm very impressed with it so far. I cannot say enough good things about the Gigabyte 8iexp motherboard. It's got everything you ever want. I really have to say this is probably the nicest piece of PC equipment I've ever purchased. In fact, I was so pleased with this new setup that I stuck the "intel inside" sticker on my generic case. Heh. I still have a bad taste in my mouth about AMD, but I may try and pick up a cheapish CPU to replace the old one and do the upgrade shuffle. So not that much is new. I spent a week in Lubbock on business but managed to hook up with some friends. It was a nice change of pace. The inlaws are in town with the Recreational Vehicle. It's nice to see them again. If we can convince the rest of her side of the family to move up here (hint hint) perhaps they will come up here permanently? I caught Sonic Youth live in Portland on 08/30. Rad! I had completely forgotten that Jim O'Rourke was playing with them. His addition really creates some new sounds. The set wasn't very surpristing (cause Ev already gave me a good idea about what they're playing live right now), but the show really kicked some ass. 2 encores though? A little strange. Hmmmm....I suppose I can live without Bumbershoot since I saw them down here. I posted 4 new sets of pictures in the photos section, some newer than others. Enjoy and come back soon!
