Thanksgiving weekend update

So, as usual, slacking on updates here. Kind of busy though, also getting bored with online stuff anyway. trying to cut back. i'll start by recapping last weekend.
So Friday Jimmy and I decided to go see Pearse's band the Rival Mob playing up in Haverhill. We meet up at the Mount Vernon restaurant by Sullivan Sq and have dinner there. If you're not familiar with the place, its visible when you're going down 93 Somerville exit. Good food, we ate at the bar area though. Burger,fries,one beer special for 7.99. Pretty good deal if you ask me. So Lynn comes and we go to the show with her. Stop off and grab Garvey too.
Show was a good time. Gil and Free Spirit played, they were good I'm a big fan. Descendents cover thrown in. Rival Mob was good too, Brendan was on fire with some one-liners.
From there we head to Allston for the Pill. Cold Cave was playing. Lots of people came out for this one. Missed the band, had a really good time with everyone though.
Next night met up with Jimmy and others for Ryan's birthday at Bukowski's in Cambridge.
So then work for a few days and Thanksgiving holiday. It was great. Food was good,bunch of relatives came over. Props to my Mom on cooking.
Last night went to Connor Larkin's, a Northeastern bar. Built up a good crowd and moved it to the Tam. More people came throughout the night, played so many songs on the jukebox.
So now for Sunday's agenda. Dunkies and the Sunday papers. The NFL games seem pretty weak today. Pats have a huge game against Saints tomorrow. Sox lost out on Alex Gonzalez, kind of weak I say.
Tunes: Crippled Youth Join the Fight, Uniform Choice Screaming for Change lp

long awaited return

ok not sure what's happened since my last update. from this past weekend I went to the Tam on Saturday for a while, had a bunch of people come out. Then hit Dorchester and went to the Banshee. Place was a madhouse.
Pats had a rough loss to the Colts. Everyone's been debating whether they should have gone for it on 4th and 2. I liked the call. Big risk, huge reward,didnt work. I was so mad after the loss though, i'm not gonna let that shit ruining my mood anymore though.
Heard Bane for the first time tonight. I was expecting usual youth crew sxe band, but this was close to Burn, and some Reach the Sky. Pretty good.
I've been deleting a lot of stuff off the Ipod. Tonight got rid of Eye for an Eye,some lesser Ramones songs too.
So I'm reversing an old policy of mine. I used to pretty much refuse to go out on any weeknights at all. But staying in every single night gets pretty boring. 5 days in a row of work,home,watch tv,sleep is no way to live life. No one laid on his deathbed saying i wish I spent more time sitting at home. Nothing too crazy though.

So its been a couple days since the last update. Menino won the election. Yanks won the World Series. 13 people killed at the Texas army base. I'm in the middle of a 3 day weekend. Echo and the Bunnymen cancelled their tour, major bumout. At least I got to see them at Great Scott with McCuddy. They were amazing. They're supposed to come back in April now.
That new Jay-Z/ Alicia Keys NY song is pretty good.
Had to bring up that Straight Ahead is crazy overrated as a band. I tried to like them for years now but I must say they're basically terrible. Can't stand Tommy Carroll's voice.
That pretty much goes for SSD too. Can't stand them. I think people get into their mystique more than the music. DYS is a million times better.
here's what was going on in hyde park last night: a call came in from a woman in hyde park she says "i saw a zoo-like creature running in the street, i think it may have been a horse or a camel." police show up and she goes "it was like a unicorn(she then holds up one finger from her head to mimic a unicorn) but instead of one horn in the front it had 2 on the side". they found it within a few minutes,it was a deer running around.

So here we are and we're into November. Time is really flying by, cliche but true. Getting pretty dark early now too.Since everyone only listens to Misfits in October, I'm going to listen to only Adam Sandler's Thanksgiving Song in November.
So there's some voting going on today. Seems like a bunch of clowns to me.
Phillies-keep up the good work.
That's all I got.

So first update from the original post. That night I went with Jimmy and McCuddy to a great Halloween party. My plans for googly eyes glasses as costume fell through. It was a straight banger as the kids would say. Or kids about 8 years ago would have said it was off the hook (but not me as I never used that stupid phrase). Some of my favorite costumes were Jana doing a perfect Pboy, Wolverine as the Tooth Fairy, and Maura being a dick. Good to see a lot of friends there. Partied til the break of about 3 am.
Sunday (as the Lord above told me to) I rested. No Pats on. Hung out with mi familia (what is this a Madball record or something?). Rocked the Alone in a Crowd record, downloaded Poker Face and Party in the USA. Caught a solid Dexter and Curb Your Enthusiasm. You're pretty much all caught up now.
