[music |Random Access Memory - "The Wrath of Virgo"]

Just got back from the Xavier Rudd show. One-man band, playing various combinations of: didgeridoo, lap guitar, lap bass, harmonica, kick drum, shaker egg, xylophone-style thing, and doing vocals. If he's coming anywhere near you, I strongly recommend seeing his show. Amazing.

(Was also the most crowded I've ever seen Winston's; it was definitely standing room only, and even before the main show, two people got ejected for rowdy behavior. Was involved in one of those ejections ... kinda scary. I don't think that guy was just on alcohol...)

Other than that, just plodding along.

deliriumdreams had business in San Francisco, but flew out here first... so we went to the Stone 8th Anniversary party; then to a friend's house unwarming; took the train up to San Luis Obispo; drove up to San Fran; went sailing in a catamaran on the bay, had some lovely food for dinner, and a wonderful night at a posh hotel; then she had to go home early because her mom had pneumonia. Still, a lovely few days of visiting with her.

Had a lovely Labor Day vacation visiting deliriumdreams; we got together with raindancer and her family; N (who first introduced us) and V, his wife; my friends D & J (who were out here this January), and generally goof off. deleriumdreams and I took her daughter K to the state fair, which was lots of fun.

Work has been interesting of late. There's an ongoing project which I find really annoying, and there's been some big news lately about the company, so who knows what's going to happen. (It does seem that I still have a job for the foreseeable future, which is nice.)

Scheming to see Random Access Memory in Tempe on October 1st with deliriumdreams and jettdelirium. chancellor_d, you should join us; they're pretty good future pop.

The Rosarito-Ensenada Ride is coming up next weekend (September 25th). It looks like my friend D, his gf K, and I will try to do a one-day trip (leaving here early in the morning, doing the ride, then coming back that evening...). Will be exhausting but hopefully fun.

ohdhalia is coming out to visit me the first weekend in October; I haven't seen her in three and a half years, so that will be delightful. The plans so far include hitting a bunch of roller coasters...

Longer-term plans include spending the first week of November in New Mexico (in Las Cruces for the annual Halloween party, then up to Abq to pester deliriumdreams and attend a wedding).

Me? I'm just plugging along.

Before I Forget To Ask

This R.A.M. show here in Tempe (I work in Tempe) that is going on October 1 - What venue are they playing at? Tempe is not really the Industrial/Techno/Synthpop hot spot.

Re: *crosses fingers* please tell me its a good venue

It meets with my approval. However, it's on PRICE road...not Prince ;)

And it should never be confused with Boston's (pizza join) near Mill Avenue by the ASU main campus. (i know...i made that mistake before...)

Thanks for the clarification, it would be completely lame to end up at a pizza joint instead of the venue.

ewwww, I don't think I'd be very happy if I flew all the way there just for some mediocre pizza. I can get plenty of that here.

Re: *crosses fingers* please tell me its a good venue

Ahhh very smart for driving. I have only drive from Phx to Abq twice...and it's my least favorite drive. It's long. But a prettier drive than others I've been on.


Albuquerque has that one place...across from UNM main campus..Nunzios I want to say it's called. I remember that being cheap and pretty ok.

Re: *crosses fingers* please tell me its a good venue

Do you mean very smart for NOT driving? I've done that drive quite a few times, but lack of a reliable car puts road trips on hold.

Nunzios has been renamed... to... ummmm... "that place that used to be Nunzios"

Actually if you want the real name, Tkil might deign to jump in the conversation and give it to you, I'm sure he remembers.

I just re-read that post...I don't really know what kind of 'engrish' I was typing at the time.

(I probably shouldn't write help files and post to LJ at the same time...what with my sun burn and all...yeah...that's it....)

Yes Tony, What is the name of the Pizza place formerly known as Nunzios?

It's now called Saggio's; I believe Saggio is actually related to Nunzio (son? Nephew?). I like what they've done with the place, it's a bit funkier yet cleaner than before, so well done.

And it's still one of my favorite thick-crust pizza places ever.

The Pizza Name Game

Ahhhh, much like Luigi is related to Mario...ahhh nevermind ;)

Speaking of Pizza: What's the name of that one pizza place in downtown San Diego (I know that's a vague intro). That you can get two East Coast style slices and a beverage for under 6.00 USD? I want to call it Brooklyn Pizza... Eileen's taken me there every time I've been to town.
