So, this past weekend, a friend of mine asked me if I was heading to the Siren Fest out in Brooklyn (Coney Island, to be exact). My answer was no... because I wasn't going to hassle with two hours of traffic and parking nightmares just to see a bunch of bands that for the most part I have already seen or had little interest in. Even worse, the prospect of being in a hot, sweaty, crowded maelstrom surrounded by annoying hipsters made my skin crawl.
My friend then responded that I was a suburban #$%&* (or words to that effect).
Well, I spent the weekend in my pool; listening to music I wanted to hear and drinking good beer. When that got too overwhelming; I sat in my backyard, lounging about, listening to music I wanted to hear and drinking good beer.
And instead of eating tepid, fried crap; I grilled good crap. And drank good beer.
So, maybe I am gettin' old. Maybe I am gettin' lazy. So what?
