DMB and DMV Could it be true, that the Dave Matthews Band will be playing a FREE concert three blocks from my new apartment?? And I am just today finding out about it? I should not have let my Warehouse membership drop. I was in early back in the day and had priority on all you fools! Dagnabbit. Oh, well, I’m sure I will be able to hear his set from my apartment. Won’t that be cool! I am so out of it. Am I too old for this? Or has DMB been co-opted by a bunch of young ruffians who won’t stay off my lawn? Regardless, I have 26 DMB CDs and about 1000 MP3s, so I should go regardless. Plus it is free and/or charitable, and Dave Matthews is putting out a new Solo album as a birthday present for Christine. Speaking of which, we are buying a new Toyota Matrix. I am man enough to admit that I made a mistake buying her the little Civic we got recently, so now we are opting for something 4 wheel drive and brand new. Hopefully worry free.
Today is also September 11th. I have been reliving that day in NYC two years ago in my mind all day today and it is very distracting. None too pleasant. I walked past the Union Square police station as I do every morning, and they were having a big ceremony around their permanent memorial. They lost more than just a few guys. Quite a poignant way to start your day. I have never been much of a flag waver or blindly jingoistic, but it makes you feel kind of good to see such respect being paid. I don’t know. I’m sure Blogger’s servers are close to crashing with everyone weighing in on this. Had to get my two cents in.
