I can’t party like the twenty-something I once was. Hell, I can barely keep up the pace that I had in my thirties. When I returned home from The EARL around 1:30am and then watched last night’s episode of Big Brother 8 there was no way in hell that I was going to keep my normal routine.
The EARL May No Longer Have Corndog-A-Rama, But It Can Still Host A Sausage Festival
To say last night’s Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit concert was “male dominated” is a bit of an understatement. There were some women in attendance, many quite attractive even, almost all of whom were on the arm of their boyfriend all night long.
Isbell, the former guitarist for Drive By Truckers, was celebrating the release of his new CD (overlooked in my reviews yesterday). The show was sold out, the band was tight, and they put on a long show making sure that no one left the building feeling cheated.
While I had heard nothing of the new disc (remember, I didn’t even know that it dropped yesterday) and do not declare that I am a huge Drive By Truckers fan, I enjoyed the band’s efforts greatly. I was further pleased when they covered Talking Heads’ “Psycho Killer” and then ended the show with Thin Lizzy’s “Jailbreak”.
It was good to be out at a show again. However, I still have a hard time coming to grips with all of the cigarette smoking, and the annoyance of people holding conversations at elevated volumes while songs are being played.

I’m still digging through some Peachtree pics.
I tried a photoshoot prior to heading out to The EARL last night and was seriously frustrated. Tonight I am going to make my first attempt at sensor cleaning. I figure that if I fuck up my camera I’ll just have to buy myself an early birthday gift.
My birthday is a week from this coming Sunday and Christmas is still in December. Is it wrong that I think that I already know what I am going to buy myself for these occasions?
For my birthday, in addition to the vacation I’ll be taking soon, I am either going to buy myself a “serious” telephoto lens or a new camera body.
Come Christmas I think that there will be a new Mac laptop in my future. I have priced a new keyboard for the iBook (anywhere between $75 and $115) and that combined with the red stripe on the screen I mighty be persuaded to upgrade.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
