I give up!

I'm tired of deleting spam comments... tired of MT... tired of making small changes to the site that end up taking weeks to do them right.

So I've moved here:

No, I am not buying a domain name... not paying for a host... not interested in installing WordPress on polter.

I'm still cheap.

Guster is my Co-pilot

Saturday, Barry and I stood out in the cold for over an hour at The Tabernacle to see my (our?) favorite band. Too cold to even think about playing Guitar Hero II in the DaveFM tent, but not cold enough for Guster. This was the 7th time seeing them live (missing a few Emory-only shows and the Barenaked Ladies show... but we did work concessions for the BNL show where we scored autographs). It never disappoints.

We had great seats for the show because we got there so early (yes, seats... no standing on the lower level for us... we let the college kids stand down there). Front row left-center of the first balcony. The opener, Mason Jennings, was unmemorable, but it gave us time to go to the bar a few times and head to the restrooms before they got slammed.

The show was amazing. They didn't play a few of my favorites, but I guess that's what happens when you pull a set from 5 great CDs... you can't play 'em all.

Looking back, the last song (at the Tabernacle shows) has always been something to remember. In 2001, it was Brian singing Kiss Me. In 2003, it was Brian singing Bridge Over Troubled Water. In 2004, it was the band coming up to the front of the stage and singing Jesus On The Radio acoustic. And this time it was Brian again, singing a song that he hates, What's Up by the 4 Non Blondes. It was classic.

Guster is playing in Macon on March 30th. Who's coming with me?!?!?! (Seriously, who's coming with me? Barry will be out of town.)
