"Walking from the past but I don't think I've said my goodbyes" - the like, What I Say and What I Mean
From Jen's Daily Candy, we ended up at MOCA for Night Vision After Dark and a high society love-in for Nine Black Alps and the like. Despite getting lost in the confusing one-way no-way streets of downtown as I always do when I don't Google Maps my journey, we made it just in time for the oppressive heat, the arts & crafts and the much younger than usual crowd. When the oldest member of the featured band can't even buy beer yet, that's par for the course.
But I didn't mind. I didn't mind anything at all. You see, my daily candy was vicodin. After spending nearly 2 hours in a dentist's chair while he went to war with a mean molar in the back of my mouth, I was given a prescription for some high powered pain medication to go with my antibiotics and the nubbin of a tooth root that refused to leave my head. Until I popped that beautiful little pill -- the first time I have ever had vicodin -- I felt like I had accidentally walked into a UFC match. I felt like I had accused Mike Tyson of rape. To his face. And didn't run afterwards. But by the time I got to Jen's place, She could've stabbed me with a knitting needle as I walked through the door and I would have been just fine.
I was still on easy street when the like took the stage. Feedback, wind and heat attempted to derail their set, mostly of songs off of Are You Thinking What I Am Thinking, but they powered through like the miniature veterans they are. By the time they closed the set with my favorite track, So I'll Sit Here Waiting, my heart was pounding.
And my face was throbbing.
It was time to go home.
The sure things:
My Super Ex-Girlfriend
I like Uma. The trailer makes me laugh. That's all I need from a summer movie.
San Diego Padres @ Los Angeles Dodgers
Hopefully I won't die from heat stroke at the game.
Jake Leg and the Dixie Itch
Finally we'll see what our favorite bar back can do with a musical instrument in his hands. Country music in Burbank? I guess so.
Because what's more fun than getting a tooth extracted? Getting 4 wisdom teeth and the remnants of your partially extracted tooth taken out at the same time.
It's a party in my mouth, y'all.
