Bits and pieces…

Van Morrison squeaked by with 42% of the vote over 35% favoring Morrissey as “who’s your favorite ‘Morris’ singer?” I personally chose Morrissey…as for the lone vote for Morris Day and the Time, I would put money on it that it was from Sugar Free. Don’t forget to cast your vote for this week’s FACE OFF!

Speaking of Sugar Free, Heather made the blog world her BITCH this weekend! She created a sweet little award-and it just about exploded over the Interwebs. Speaking of the award, the lady with the perkiest non-bra wearin’ boobies, Bouncin' Barb, passed along to me a repeat of the “Nice Rack!” award that the aforementioned Heather made. Thanks Barb!

I’m still waiting for my test results from last week. I felt like a corpse this weekend. I could not get off the couch. I felt like all of my limbs had 50-lb. weights attached to them. I still had no appetite until Sunday night, when I managed to literally eat nonstop from 9pm until 4am. It’s like the entire week of not eating caught up with a vengeance. Even today it’s taking all I have to just write this and not go lay back down. I hope I find out something soon…

On Friday, I got the best news of THE WEEK THE YEAR!!! I have been complaining to my husband lately about all these concerts this summer that I’m not going to be able to go to: 30 Seconds to Mars, Rise Against, Death Cab for Cutie, Coachella, etc. It seems like all of my favorite bands are touring. Well a few weeks ago A Perfect Circle, my second favorite band in the world (behind Tool and Nine Inch Nails which will forever be tied for first), released a statement saying they were going to TOUR THIS YEAR!!!

Here is why this is a big damn deal: A Perfect Circle is a “supergroup” headed by Maynard from Tool, Billy Howerdel from Ashes Divide, James Iha from the Smashing Pumpkins, Jeordie White from Marilyn Manson, and drummer extraordinaire Josh Freese.

 

Another reason? They haven’t put out an album or toured since 2004. Right before I left California for Australia last year I found out they were doing a three-day set in Hollywood of their ENTIRE DISCOGRAPHY, and I was dying that I couldn’t go. DYING!

I’ve seen them four times, and they are just amazing live. So when I heard they were going on tour I had to find a way to go. Thursday night I was going on and on to J about how, out of every band on the planet, this is who I wanted to see. Imagine my surprise when he said “okay babe” and offered to buy me and my best friend tickets to see the show! Imagine my bigger surprise when he said I could get the GOOD SEATS!!!!!!!!!

Unfortunately at 10:01 (the tickets went on sale at 10), only the second row was available. BUT STILL! Great seats. I just checked Ticketmaster just now, and the only tickets available are the far back (row 30) in the corner.

YAY!

So yeah, that news pretty much trumps any other news I have. This week (or next) I will have to tell you about when I met Josh Freese in Las Vegas-one of the stories I was going to share about Vegas for the Studio 30 writing prompt from last week. Speaking of Vegas, I kind of urge you to read my Saturday post, titled "DEBAUCHERY!!!" if you haven’t had the chance to do so. Good times.

Have a good week everyone!
