Stinko de Mayo

If I decide to go drinking tonight you’ll either find me at Limerick Junction in VaHi or somewhere in East Atlanta. You’ll definitely not find me at one of the many Mexican establishments that will be jammed packed with people. For many different reasons I really don’t need to be around the “it” crowd tonight.

And Me Without A Camera, Again
I never would have suspected that for an act as big as Gomez that I could easily be centerstage, three people deep. And did I bring my camera? Noooooo. Last night I found out that the only things worse than being stuck behind a really tall person when standing on the floor is being near a couple that constantly grinds on each other, and being behind a guy with no rythm who rocked back and forth like he was Rain Man. I swear I was tempted find a box of matches so that I could drop them and see if Rain Man could count the ones on the floor. I had had enough after about five songs and moved from the floor to the seats.

As I mentioned on Tuesday, Gomez had a new cd drop on Tuesday. I waited until the show to pick up my copy, and was rewarded with an extra cd insert which was signed by the band (there’d be a picture of it here today had I not gotten home near 1am).

The show was predictably enjoyable for me. Gomez, consisting of six members, has a rich sound and songs with great hooks (if you’ve listened to “alternative” radio in the past ten years you’ve undoubtedly heard at least one of their songs). The band members really looked like they were enjoying themselves, and they played a set consisting of many new songs peppered with crowd-pleasing band hits. Perhaps my only frustration with the show (that has not been previously mentioned) was the nearly forty-minute delay between the opening act, Atlanta residents I-Nine, and Gomez. Seriously, could it take that long to get things checked?

Spring Training
Observing Lent-For-A-Day I rode Marta into work this morning. One hour, door to door. Given the current price of gas I was surprised that the train wasn’t more crowded; surprised, but pleased. As I’ve mentioned it’s not the morning commute which brings reward when train commuting, so I am anxious to see what my commute home is like tonight.

Open For Interpretation
For my Digital 102 class I have an assignment which requires me to take two photos. Each of these two photos should capture the essence of one of the following words.

  • fast
  • slow
  • lost
  • found
  • soft
  • new
  • old
  • open
  • together
  • alone
  • wild

My challenge to you is to tell me what you think of when you hear these words…

Is There A .mac In The House?
I’m a target. Admittedly I have not done a good job backing up my data (either on Windows or OSX) and am ready to openly sob when one of my main drives goes south.

I’ve been searching for a good solution to back up my Mac data. One ($99/year) option is to go through Apple using their .mac solution. Has anyone out there used .mac for thier solution? If not and you are a Mac user do you have a better solution? Thanks!

Sunday Will Be A Meat Day
This Sunday is a NY Corned Beef Society of Atlanta Sunday at Twain’s in Decatur. I find that while attempting to stick to this 5/7ths vegetarian thing that days that allow myself to eat meat become big event days. Therefore this Sunday around 4pm you will find me drinking beer and eating some meat at Twain’s. Won’t you join me?

And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – really tired and harried
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio Channel 26, playing The Jesus & Mary Chain — “Happy When It Rains”
Website Of The Day – Want to see what cool things are coming our way? Want to promote cool things that are coming our way? Then go sign up and use I’ll give you three guesses to come up with my account name, the first two don’t count…

If you ever want a quick glance of the sites I’ve picked for my Websites Of The Day, you can check them out on, my user name is InsideThePerimeter (go figure), and they are all tagged as “blogged.”

Exercise (b)Log – nothing

    I use .Mac. Not sure if it’s worth the money, but I have a couple of macs and it makes synchronizing them easy. I’ve used the backup tool to both backup and restore and it seems to work. I’ve never had much luck with iDisk. Check out Many of the same services for half the price.

    Hey, thanks for stopping by my blog. To answer your question: Cingular – but I’m biased, I work there and get a big incentive on the service. Here’s a tip if you do go with Cingular, their online support services are fantastic… I’m saying this because I’ve had to use them myself, not only b/c I work there. The Phones and Devices Support and Customer Forums are chock-full of information.
