The world is my jester.

Feeling chipper. This weekend is going to be stellar. BlackHand this weekend. First show with their new bassist, Walt. Come out!  It’s all coming along swimmingly. I’m having mini-piphanies all over the place. Good in my book.  I feel like going out dancing. Problem that clubs don’t play clutch and Queens of the Stone Age (everything homme touches musically  is sexy). I don’t do beyonce and Lady Gaga.  It should be said I am a creature of habit. I listen to Clutch almost every day. I pick out the same 20 cds every time I want music. I will Always be dancing and singing…especially if I am in the kitchen. (it has great acoustics) I quote Eddie Izzard about five times a day. I’d live in the same 8 band shirts if I could. I always have a coke in my hands. I do my hair the same every day because I hate getting primped up and it’s super easy. If asked what I’ll take to drink, I’ll probably always say 7&7 because whiskey is where it’s at.  I am what I am and I’m nothing I’m not. If I’m not what I am then I’m noting at all.  P.S I’m going to start writing. Really writing..what I want. As part of my mini epiphany…I’ve realized that the time for editing is coming to a close. It’s had its moment in the sun and was highly overrated.I’ve always been afraid to put in writing anything that might leak out and bust me. Now if it leaks…no use crying over spilt milk. Lick it up, Heather…lick…it…up. So, Soon, there will be something NEW out there. All the things I want to say, but don’t. Some of you will not be invited along for the ride.  Take no offense. This isn’t for sensitive ears.  I don’t think those of you shut out are going to like what I have to say.

Annnnd here’s a simple compilation of things that make me laugh. It’s a day that is in serious need of some humor.



The obsessions of my tastes..If you’re going to do it…do it right.

This may go in segments. I have yet to decide…but when I do…you’ll know. However, the first segment is MUSIC!!!

This is the magic that makes the world tick…but that’s just one girl’s opinion. Here they are, songs I have been obsessed with (that I am willing to admit) First off, I should mention that as of late…I am attached permanently to all things Homme. Everything that man touches turns to gold. As long as he never does any side projects with James Taylor, we will be good to go. Jimmy Buffet should be included in that as well.
This has nothing to do with my obsessions to start with…but must be addressed. While searching for some sort of evil image for James Taylor..this is what happened.

Oh, James know how I feel about you.

Almost Famous has just been ruined a little bit for me. Does his evil know no end?

Back to happier things. The music dealy. Enjoy.

Yes, segments are apparently necessary.

Queens of the Stone Age set list, Electric Factory, Philadelphia. PA March 24th, 2011:

  1. Encore:
  2. Encore 2:
  3. The show was incredible. The crowd was anything but lethargic…except that top balcony in the back. Guess where I’m glad I wasn’t? You got it…top balcony in the back. We were decently close to the stage on the right hand side. There was a no smoking policy, but as soon as Homme ignored it…everyone followed suit. The floors were sticky, the air was smokey…and I couldn’t have cared less. Show was spot on. Opening band, the Dough Rollers was really good. Kind of rockabilly, bluesy, old rock. They were great musicians and genuine. I like the type of bands you can feel getting into their music. Good stuff. I’ll definitely be purchasing a cd in the near future.  I got in the wrong line for the pat down on my way in. The staff was like, “Get in the chick line.” However, the chicks patting down seriously looked like dudes…so a sign was needed.  Just stating the truth. Just confusing. We did make a wrong turn after the show and end up in Jersey…unable to turn around. Hello Camden. Hello, lots o’ cops. Goodbye Jersey, hello Philly…and a stop to Dunkin donuts for the second time that nite. *Insert boston creme donut into face here* The stars certainly aligned for this show. Ticketmaster just freakishly had tickets for sale on their site to the sold out show…two days before the concert. Michael had to call the day before the show to get them though because the site wasn’t working. We were able to get a babysitter that same day and there we were. If that’s not fate, I don’t know what is.  I didn’t take pics or video (didn’t want interrupt my music experience)…but enjoy a piece of their magic via someone else’s hard work.
