killswitch.....engaged!!

well....i tryed blogging last wednesday night after the killswitch show but my pc booted me off line....losing my fairly long post...i was so pissed i said f--- it...i thought it was good but to much to rewrite and post again.
anyways....it was a great show...went by myself.....killswitch's first head lining tour. 36 crazyfists opened...i missed them. 18 visions was next....i was impressed...i bought their cd....turned out to be one of those bands that sound ten times better live. autumn to ashes was next.....i liked them...good set. last but not least was killswitch engage, they were great of course. this was probably the first show where the crowd was just as much into the first band as the last....it was great....packed wall to wall with shorty's. i guess the whole tour was impressed with the turn out....they would have never guessed that abq on a weeknight would have brought out so many fans. i was impressed that so many turned out with the $15 cover!
that would be my last night driving the '76.

last saturday night i did something i thought i'd never do again...i went to the fall crawl, downtown. i told myself i would never go again because the *crawls* are an amateur's night out.....everyone and their mom is out these nights...its ridiculous! have to wait in line to get in, wait in line to get a drink, wait in line to piss! and usually everyone uses these nights to get plastered....so people are fighting, puking, and just plain annoying. the only reason i went was cuz tommy and his grrl were going, starsky was playing(my tattooist's old reunited band) and i never seem them before, and i havn't hung out with tommy in awhile. we met up at his grrl's house and left in a cab....there would be no way in finding a parking spot...plus there was a good chance for roadblocks. we were hoping to just pay a cover to get into the one bar where starsky was playing but no...the alibi, the weekly paper, had the whole event monopolized where you had to buy the $20 wristband to get in...even if you were only going to one bar...bullshit! and of course we had to stand in line to get the wristband. and of course a fight breaks out five feet away from said line. so we make it back to the bar and watch starsky after downing a few pbr's. there were alot of cute grrl's out but there was this one that caught my eye and it was weird that i was attracted to her since she had two things i'm not really into....short hair and lots of tatt's. but she was definitely cute and the tatt's were well placed and well done. i'd catch her looking my direction during the show and tommy caught her looking too....so here it comes....a swift punch to the arm, for not making a move yet, from tommy. the show ends and she leaves with her friend....i couldn't let this go and i know i wouldn't hear the end of it, so i ran out to talk to her. turns out she's just as cute, if not cuter, out in the street and that she wasn't available. oh well...at least i tried. tommy, xtina, and i take off.....find a cab and head home. i was right about the roadblocks...right as we left the downtown area, there was a sobriety check point....cab's the only way to go!


got an e-mail from my soon to be roommate.....he said his transfer was pushed ahead and he'll be moving to abq by the end of september....i hope he's a cool guy, especially since i'm giving him a good deal on his room. it will be nice getting that extra check every month....plus it'll give me an excuse to keep the place clean. i also hope his grrlfriend ,here in town, has some cute friends!

i also got a call from my friend tommy today, he was at the airport getting ready to leave to london with his grrlfriend and her family.....i guess they're going over there for 10 days for some vintage road racing event.
just get back from mexico and then head off to london...must be nice!

i picked up the new bronco thursday. got it insured and resistered friday. spent most of the weekend cleaning it....inside and out. some cool things i found out about it....since its has a 6300 GVW, i don't have to do emissions.....it has the factory limited slip.....first and last year for mass air....4-wheel abs. saturday i installed an amp and a 10" sub.....a great improvement over the factory speakers....i'll upgrade those down the road. got a call from my buddy, ron, today. i'm leaving my truck with him tomarrow so he can get new tires put on it....32" BFG mud-terrains....he still hasn't told me what the damage is...not sure if that's good or bad. i should also get my doggy-divider to keep the dogs contained to the back and my cat-back exhaust in tomarrow! the truck is too quiet...i hope the new exhaust will *fix* that. i also made it over to the local clifford dealer, driver's den, which was conviently down the road from me, to pick up a key for my immbolizer. so now my killswitch is engaged!

here's a tip i use when posting that you oughta do: write up your post in notepad first, unselect "word wrap", ctrl+a to select-all, ctrl+c to copy it, open blogger, create new post, then ctrl+v to paste it in. then post that badboy.

after all the hiccups w/blogger i've learned to not rely on it and for you w/the dialup that's definitely the way to go in case something fucks up and you lose it.

good to hear Killswitch was decent. i've seen them a few times and even talked them on different occasions. cool guys. you may remember a few years ago when i was out there and the lady at the DMV asked me what my shirt said. "Killswitch Engage" honey.

sounds like fall crawl was more miss than hit. ah well. dad called me tonight to tell me that you have a new bronco. i look forward to checking it out soon. i'm thinking of heading down there again before the year is out... maybe thanksgiving. i dunno yet. kris wants me to come w/M&D to rapid city but i don't know about that. i'll keep ya posted.

shit, Tommy is the jetsetter now... you watching his place again?
