Come with us now on a journey through time and space...
Or maybe just a recount of my Saturday in Toronto. Don't get bored yet, that'll happen shortly.
Picture it. A Saturday afternoon in Toronto. Two chicks with hours to spare before their concert. What do they do?
Well, we got Leah's nose pierced at Blackline. Random impulsive piercings are her forte.
Then we visited Marty at the Banknote, because beer and appetizers are the best way to prepare for a concert.
It's proven. I just proved it.
I met a cute buoy.
With too much time to spare, we sat by the lake at Ontario Place. I thought about jumping in, yet did not. Exciting, no?
My froghead brings all the boys to the yard.
Don't be that guy - The guy (or chick) that wears the tshirt of the band he's seeing. Don't ask why, but it bugs me.
So. The concert. Let's talk.
Deftones... blew me away. Chino (the lead singer) has somehow gotten BETTER since I saw them 11 years ago. So much energy. Such a good mix of songs, old and new. One of the best shows I've ever seen.
Amazing. I was a happy li'l Deftones Freak.
Don't mind the pic, my zoom doesn't work.
Now, onto Alice in Chains. I've been a fan forever. Grew up listening to their old stuff. I knew that seeing them with the new singer would be really strange, but that wasn't the weirdest part. They played so many new songs, which I figured they would, but I was so surprised to see that the crowd knew every word to the new stuff, and was clueless about the old songs.
That disappointed me. Good show, but I still wish I could transport back to the early 90's and see 'em with Layne. Watching someone else sing 'Nutshell' was just odd to me.
After the show, we went to Kelly's birthday party full o' faux mustaches and fun-tastic wigs.
But don't worry...
I played along, too.
I have now posted the ugliest possible picture of myself that I ever could, complete with unibrow, a disappearing upper lip and wonky eyes. You, my friends, are welcome.
I'm tight with Keith Hernandez. Your jealousy fuels me.
Oh, Toronto. I miss you already. Long distance relationships are tough; let's figure out a way to be together. Now.
