Honestly that's the most generic blog title ever conceived....

I figured that I should just talk about what I've been up to because I haven't blogged in the past two days. It's actually been a wonderful past couple of days and in a lot of ways writing this blog is depressing because it means that it's over enough to sum it up. It's been an oddly bipolar weekend, one of immense nostalgia but also of looking to the future.

This weekend began for me on Thursday afternoon. My mom decided to surprise my dad with tickets to go see David Byrne in Cleveland, OH (which she bought so we could celebrate her birthday in a way that we would all enjoy). My mom had bought the tickets almost a month in advance so my brother and I had been keeping the concert a secret for a while. My dad being an unstable person refused to go because my mom had complained earlier about his blaring music because of a headache. My mom then almost decided that we wouldn't go. Luckily, my brother and I convinced her otherwise and we hit the road for Cleveland. On the way to the concert I listened to Public Enemy's album It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back and officially began to understand rap, which was an odd thing to occur before a punk/electronic concert. Anyway the concert was a lot of fun with a nice mix of David Byrne's solo stuff and Talking Heads material. I thought it was funny that a lot of people pulled out bongs during "Burning Down The House."

The entire day Friday was excellent. I woke up late and went in to school to catch Lunch, The Cellar (multimedia art class) and AP Physics. After that I stayed after school for Speech/Debate which is actually just hanging out at this point. Then I went home shortly and went to my last high school football game ever. It was also the last real Marching Band performance I will ever give for the entirety of my life. After the game was the annual band lock-in, another one of Senior year's lasts. It was a lot of fun. I brought my own TV so me and couple people played a lot of Rez and God Hand as well as Manhunt, Jet Set Radio: Future, and God of War. Other than that, we also played dodgeball and wandered around our school at night.

Saturday I began the day by sleeping until about 1 pm and then waking up to see my dad off at the airport. After that my friends and I had plans to hang out. First two of us went over to another person's house and then briefly visited the annual Speech/Debate party (which was really lame this year considering we made up 50% for the 10 minutes we were there). After that we just sat around and talked for a while. Eventually we came back to my house and played Siren and The Orange Box. Then we went to bed.

Now it's Sunday. Pretty much this blog is the only thing I've done today at this point. I have plans however to go to a Mock Trial meeting at 3 pm and I'm also going to work on my college essay for Georgia Tech. If I find time, I'm going to play God Hand and work on game development.

That's all for now...

Concert sounds fun.

And yes you really have to listen to rap to understand it. People don't understand that some of it is indeed good.
