Visitor From the East…Coast.

My mom was out to visit recently. We ate good food, hung out on 3rd Street, and visited the Noah’s Ark and Houdini exhibitions at the Skirball.

An Evening with RUSH

June 24th, 2011 — 5:58pm

Nicole and I went to see Rush in concert recently. I have lost track of how many shows that makes for me, but it was her first show and we hoped it would be a good one. The music was great however, the venue left much to be desired (mostly from a sound standpoint, though signage was awful as well).

I won’t get into detail about that as I would prefer to focus on the positive. Three extremely talented musicians that took the stage and played three hours of amazing music. A huge treat was that they played the entire Moving Pictures album from 1981.

Rush became my favorite band shortly after my cousin made me a cassette tape with some of their music on it. I was probably 13 or 14 years old at the time. A few years later I saw them live for the first time…and many times since in Canada and the US.

Recent and random happenings…

June 3rd, 2011 — 1:34pm

As the blog post suggests…recent and random things…

1) The sleeping guy in the store was amusing and I couldn’t resist taking a picture. He was out for at least 20 minutes. The sales clerk says she sees it all the time.

2) Nicole and I saw Forks over Knives a few weeks ago. It was a fantastic documentary about food. More information at the official site and the movie trailer. Highly recommended no matter what you put on your plate at meal time.

3) We have been doing some home improvement updates with partial motivation being that mommy Chan is going to be visiting next week from the east coast. Things are looking really sharp and we have some fun stuff planned for her visit.

4) What is hard work without a little reward? A great meal at RFD was capped off with an amazing dessert. Nicole shows this off in the final photo.
