|12.12 15:36||Hey remember 20 year old Barq's ads?|
"I can see! I can see!"
"No - but it got dem bite to it tho!"
|11.12 23:20||I think I've said this every year since the separation but it's way less fun being a giant baby about being sick when there's no audience|

Me, later, with everything in the kitchen covered in a fine layer of flour and/or flour paste: Oh, right

|7.12 14:26||Oh, OK, it's a website. Take that, Mason! Also, my entire Spotify year was apparently devoted to Allison and Krista which is ... probably not very surprising - even more embarrassing screen grabs in the comments|
|7.12 12:25||Wow, that's....kind of depressing? Also, Facebook is really digging deep today...|

Well, most of the leaves.
Well, enough of the leaves.
It can snow now.

|27.11 17:01||ATTENTION, CALIFORNIA FRIENDS: Looking like I'll be "home" for the holiday. Details to come|
|26.11 23:21||More fallout from the A Perfect Circle show: It called to mind THIS song, but I couldn't remember anything except RIFFS and you can't Google a riff (or you probably can and I don't know how). I eventually remembered like three words of lyrics and amazingly found it. I probably could have just listened to all the Tool albums (which I clearly never did in the '90s) but honestly I didn't even remember with certainty that it was Tool. This probably says a lot about my musical tastes (cf. The KZiM Archives) back then - Tool definitely warn't very "techno." But hey I only slept on it for, what, 14 years (EDIT: 24 years. Shit) (YouTube: Tool - Sober)|

|25.11 19:31||Wow, there's a "strictly prohibited" sign literally every two feet. Who knew these guys were such fascists? Stay tuned for my Instagrams!|
|24.11 14:58||OK, I also can't believe it's me asking this question, but...is anyone interested in going to the A Perfect Circle show at the X tomorrow with me? Cheapest tickets are $37, but through the magic of TicketMaster it becomes a $61.16 ticket, so HELL no. I'm assuming I could just show up and buy something at the box office to get in while avoiding all the fees. (There appear to be many $37 tickets still for sale.)|
Afterward, we could hit Brit's Pub for the Pop-up Transmission if we found we needed to return to the 1980s ;-)
(Alternately, if you suddenly find you have a +1 you need filled, we could haggle)
|23.11 14:41||Ah, how appropriate this Thanksgiving. Thanks mate for changing my life in countless ways I'm still figuring out...|
|22.11 22:12||I'm here! (but you should still come anyway) (Transmission: Heat Wave)|
I'm sure I'd been there before, primarily from following Arzu there for Christmas Staraoke. I didn't join Foursquare until 2009, and the first Foursquare check-in to the Triple Rock Social Club I have logged was from July 15, 2011, when Kim and I teamed up with Ellie, Arzu and Dave for a trivia contest. (We didn't win because we shouted down one of Dave's correct answers.)
My next three check-ins were for the short-lived run of Sunday night Staraoke in the old bar.
My fifth check-in was for Nightosaur's second album "Spaceaxers" release - we played Blingo in the old bar, missing Red Desert and STNNNG but catching Gospel Gossip and (of course) Nightosaur. I posted my band pics to Twitpic back then.
I'm not sure if I really stopped going out until my separation but the next check-in I found was the night Kim broke up with me, by total coincidence. It couldn't have been more timely, a lifesaving NOTHER Nightosaur show, this time a free gig brought to us by Newcastle and featuring METZ.
Now I can use my archived lifestream to rattle off the shows (although I'm sure I'm missing a few):
The Triple Rock was 1.9 to 2.1 miles from my house, depending on which way I walked and how many Pokemon I chased. When I needed an excuse to get some exercise, usually there was a show, more often than not featuring bands with friends in them, or bands featuring crushes I had/have. And I could usually score a chair so that I'd be well rested for the walk/stagger home.
It's sad that this place is going just when I felt I was getting used to it.

|21.11 15:00||Still true|
|21.11 01:16||MOUSE UPDATE: Mouse #3, the stupid smart mouse, brazenly knocked my ice pick off the kitchen counter while I was out, just to let me know it was still around, even if it wasn't leaving all kinds of tiny poops behind any more. Although it is smart and changing up tactics, I have settled on a course of stubbornly redefining insanity by applying fresh peanut butter to the usual trap and hoping that that finally reels one in tonight. Also, I plan to be out cold on Alka Seltzer Plus Night Cold Formula so I'll have no idea if it works until I am ready to go to work. STAY TUNED TO THIS [SOCIAL] NETWORK FOR FURTHER UPDATES|
