I've been waffling back and forth between listening to a ton of the Ramones to no Ramones at all and back again since I heard the news that Tommy Ramone died last week.  

The Ramones are one of my all time favorite bands and their influence on modern music can't be dismissed or probably even fully appreciated.  It's espescially amazing since they never quite gained mainstream popularity despite the incredible talent and sheer volume of their catalog.  Just about everyone knows who they were and most people have at least heard one or two of their most popular songs (Blitzkrieg Bop, I wanna be sedated and Rockaway beach for instance) and that's despite recieving painfully sparse radio play and never really achieving record topping sales.  Even with their lack of mass market appeal they still manage permeate the musical texture for years afterward by being direct influences on many genres from punk rock to speed metal.  

So now the four founding members of the Ramones are no longer with us.  Farewell Dee Dee, Joey, Johnny and now Tommy.  The world is a lesser place without you in it but thanks for the music you left behind.

And weird fact about me, I have a Schott Perfecto leather motorcycle jacket.  I've had it for many years in fact.  What most people don't know or realize is that I bought it well before I bought my first motorcycle because it was the jacket that was the defacto uniform of the Ramones.

This has been bugging me for a few weeks so I figured I'd get it off my chest.  Normally if I get a llama for any reason I give one back.  I haven't been able to do so lately and every time I see the list of people who have given me llama's grow even larger it annoys me.

Short story is the llama interface causes the browser on the PC I've been on lately to freeze up.  If I was on my home PC this wouldn't be an issue, but I haven't been on it in a while, normally when I'm not on this one I'm on my phone and the DA mobile interface isn't very reliable either.  One of these days I'll be back on my PC and have a llama gifting party but until then, I'm not a selfish jerk, seriously :(
  • Mood: Tired
  • Listening to: still a lot of Sisters of Mercy
  • Reading: Ghost Story (a Harry Dresden novel)
  • Watching: Young Justice
  • Playing: DCU Online (on PS and PC...)
  • Eating: Yogurt

I've been back in the United States since Saturday night and back to work since Monday morning.  Adjusting to my work schedule again after two weeks off has been hellish but I think I'll survive, I just need more caffiene.  (A LOT more.)

But on this trip I noticed I apparently have the bizarre habit of carrying things with me across the world without ever actually making use of them.  For example:

I bought the Harry Dresden novel "Changes" when it first came out.  That book has travelled with me to numerous points across the US and now to Mexico and back and I JUST finished reading it.  (It was good and I immediately went out and bought the next three in the series, hopefully they won't take me four years to read this time)

I bought the Miles Edgeworth investigations game for the DS (spinoff of the Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney games) when it first came out and like the aforementioned novel, it has travelled with me across the globe and I'm still not done playing it... (apparently only playing a game while flying in an airplane is a bad plan if I ever want to actually finish it.)

And now my notebook... brought it with me on my vacation and never once wrote or drew in it.  Bleh...

I'll be heading to the Ren Faire next weekend, haven't decided if I'm going in a full or partial costume yet, it will probably depend greatly on how hot it is that day.  But I do plan on finally attending the fair Pub Crawl.  Tickets for the Pub Crawl have always sold out within minutes of the fair starting and I've come as close to getting them as one place in line before, but this year is different.  This year they finally opened up a portion of them for online pre-sale so I got my hands on two, w00t!
