Hey folks, how are we? It’s Monday… again. Why does it always have to be Monday? I do feel as if I got some relaxing in this weekend but I wasn’t in an amazing mood. I’m sort of stressed and anxious with no real rationale. But the weekend ended alright and I felt decent about coming to work anyway, despite spilling a little coffee on my jeans and a portion of my work area being closed off this entire week, rerouting me way out of my way. Ah well, it is what it is.
So, let’s just speak in brief about life as it is then share the music:
- It is ridiculously hot – hotter than it was in August, which is typically the worst summer month. Last night, at 11 pm, it was still 86 and the kind of oppressive humidity that renders you nearly breathless just walking the dog before bed.
- I’ve come to appreciate Monday evenings as the only night we have no activities. I can make dinner and play Guitar Hero and watch wrestling without having to cart children around all over town.
- My renewed interest in Metallica is giving me the will to live. I remember when I first heard them when I was, oh, seven or eight. My dad watched a lot of Mtv so it was not uncommon. I bought the Black album literally the day it came out. I didn’t follow some of those weird late nineties albums (Load, Reload, garage, Inc.) but their newest one still wails. Also, James Hetfield has always been my metal god.
- Damn, that’s hot. OK, sorry, did I say that out loud? I have a thing for guitarists. And wrestlers. And last night was a pay per view and holy crap! People did some insane things. I just love pro wrestling.
OK, music. Freebie so here we go:
Two new-to-me bands: Like a Storm and Mothership. One is a New Zealand band that utilizes a didgeridoo and the other is a throwback psychedelic rock band. Both quality.
