NIN, Art, My buddy

My buddy Laura gets married later on today. Congrats to her.

Ya know I was on a radio show contest on the Kevin and Bean Show 106.7 KROQ trying to win tickets to a Nine Inch Nails show. Well I had a brainfart and they hung up on me cause they thought I was its all good though..i laughed it off.

I did however get tickets but I purchased them. NIN are my favorite band. Did I tell you I got hit by their drummers drum stick right smack in the middle of my head? It was awesome..If I didn't talk about it, I will another time.

I am a big fan of art work; mainly that of music. But occasionally I stumble across a blog that catches my interest and I think it will catch yours. Art

Ever click the next button on the top right hand corner of a blog. It is amazing what you find. A lot of foreign languages blog. I try to read them but can't get past most titles so I just keep clicking next. Let me know if you find one that is interesting.

Treehouse Guy, Rock n Roll

I read today that a man in India has lived in a tree for nearly 50 years following an argument with his wife. 50 YEARS!!! I hate climbing up a tree to tie a pinata for a birthday party and that lasts all but 3 minutes (like most of your love lives) but to stay in there for 50 years that is ridiculous. He was living in a mango tree in this "shed" he built but had to move because the tree fell down during a storm. Oh well, when I get married which is in 4 months, I know I have 4 trees in my backyard just in case.

Speaking of which, my house finally closed escrow and I began the move in process last Saturday. It's weird owning a house but I will soon get used to it.

My predictions of who would be playing at the 2006 KROQ Weenie Roast was pretty much dead on. I guessed RHCP, AFI, Pearl Jam, H.I.M., and Angels and Airwaves. All but Pearl Jam will be attending. I had also mentioned but not on here that Wolfmother would be there and they are. Listening to KROQ for so long I can always tell who will be playing their events except their annual Inland Invasion. That concert is harder to guess because mostly bands from the 80's and early 90's play that gig.

Wolfmother tickets will be going on sale soon at the Henry Fonda Theatre in Hollywood. Never been to that venue but I am looking forward to going. I am also looking forward to seeing Nine Inch Nails play Irvine Meadows in July. Yeah I still call it Irvine Meadows and I refuse to call it anything else.
