First off, the Foo Fighters are fukking ROCK STARS. And I mean that in a good way. And, in addition to playing two hours of ROCK STAR ARENA ROCK, they are good guys too. They let some kid from the Make A Wish Foundation (actually Garden Of Dreams- same concept) play drums for a song and they also had an auxillary stage that jutted out about 3/4's of the way into the floor (yeah, I know they're not the first ones to do that) so the folks in the cheap seats could be up close and personal for about 6 songs.The show was being broadcast by some Music TV station, and Mr. Asshole Hipster Blow Dried V-J was doing his live remotes right in front of me. So, if you happened to see the broadcast and you heard/saw some idiot screaming "Slayer", well that would be me.
Oh yeah, they also had some guy play a Triangle Solo.
Punk Fukking Rock.
Here's a link to our friends at One Died Simply, who have kindly posted up the Foo Fighters Feb 2, 2008 Oakland show.
But I digress, this post is about how it sucks to be getting older. Yeah, it is better than dying, but it still hurts.
My back is killing me, and I still might be hungover from 2 nights ago. And I have to be a grown up and work and shit. And I can't take my pain killers at work because than I tend to stare off into space and drool a bit. Which tends to make me friendlier to the lumpen proles. It's a vicious circle. Or something.
Anywhere, here are some tunes that fit my mood.
