Tired, But Good...

Got some new sweaters to replace the one I am either outgrowing or shredding. They're nice, but the logo seems low.

I won't lie... I'm tired. We were at the store until almost 4AM with our after-FNM event, then I turn around and am up at 8:30AM so I can get ready to open the store. Luckily, there's not much going on today. We thought about trying to get a "Gopher Improvement Day" happening, but too many people had things going on to make it feasible. That all said, a slow day will be nice...

Tonight is World of Darkness, so I get to go home early. However, I'm basically coming home to change clothes, and then I'm meeting Grumpy back at the store. Once that happens, we'll be going to a local show to see a band from Rockford, Illinois (Mind Drop), a band from Champaign-Danville (Degrade the Signal), and these guys called Eye Empire. Eye Empire has some good talent in it, most notably Corey Lowery, the younger brother of Sevendust's Clint Lowery. Corey's been more than a few good bands in his career (Stuck Mojo and Dark New Day being two of them), so I'll give him and his crew the benefit of the doubt and my $10. That, plus I hear that Degrade the Signal is pretty damn good, so let's go support some local stuff as well.

HiSign is opening the store tomorrow, so I'll get to sleep in more than a bit.

Beyond that, not much is happening right now, and I'm okay with that..

  1. :-) Stuck Mojo is on my "workout rotation"... Pretty good guitar work... Something subtle...

  2. Strangely, it's often the days I expect to be slow that are surprisingly busy. But sometimes it's just nice to be able to slowly get things done...just not too many times, hehe.
