Few things:
Mt St Helens
We went to Mt. St. Helen's last weekend to see what a living breathing volcano looks like. We also gave it a speech about not blowing up anytime soon again. I think it took it ok. You can go look at more photos in my photo stream.

Aqueduct - Doug Fir 9/6/07
Aqueduct played here on Thurs. as part of the Northwest Music Fest. It was a total blast. It was great to get to see Dave and Jay, and the other newer doods I don't know so well. We had dinner together before and then had to wait 3-4 hours before Aqueduct went on. What is there to do in that time? Drink lots of beer. Friday was not a good day. Anyway, the show was a lot of fun. The crowd really seemed to be into them. It appeared to me that a lot of people came just to see them. I started giving Aqueduct's latest album Give me Death some more listens during my commute, and man, it really has worked its way into my brain. Good stuff, and can't get it out of my head.

Something I noticed as my head was pounding yesterday, was how nice the people were at this show. I think we met and talked to at least 4-6 complete strangers. Just hanging out, everyone seems to strike up conversation with anyone. It wasn't forced or fake. It was really refreshing. I thought back to shows in Oklahoma, and I don't think I EVER talked to someone I didn't know. I was ready to hate the hipsters that night, but they didn't come to this show. Great crowd, and great times.

Our friends Matt and Lacey have completed their move up here from OKC. Matt and I have known each other since we were pretty small. It is great to have some more Oklahomies up in the greatest city in the US. Welcome you guys!
