Freakshow 2005

Get your butt over to Shadowbox and check out Freak Show 2005 as quickly as you can. They've managed to put on another AWESOME show, keeping up a pretty good streak, especially following the muy-awesome Best Of this year. It's got a lot of awesome sketches including a great kids show sketch (with a slightly different set-up for it which was nice), and several recurring favs. The band's set list on the night was the HUGE stand-out. Definitely may be one of the best shows music-wise that I've seen there. Highly recommended. One of the best parts of the show for me (and Amy too) was that it's all new (or at least new to us) -- they've been recycling some stuff even in their non Best Of shows lately, but this was all new. In fact, I was really happy with everything but the very last sketch -- that wasn't too bad, but seemed a little slow. The more than made up for it with the awesome finale.

In more Shadowbox-fandom, they've also set a date for the Fall Fireball , October 21st. Amy & I will definitely be there (unless Amy ditches me again), as will Gary, Randy, Heather (supposedly), and Pat & Cindy... and probably some other folks too. If you're interested in going, you should - it's a great time, and for a good cause.

  • I'm definitely not a legal expert, but if this case doesn't have serious national importance before it's over I'll be really surprised. Unless one of the parties backs out, I'd expect to see some Supreme Court activity. The whole background behind that case is a complete mess, and one of the hugest uphill battles that same-sex couples will have to face... Regardless of how serious you are about a relationship, or even if you adopt the kid, in the end it's still only genetically related to ONE of the parents. I'm very interested to see where that goes.
  • People like this are why I have so little faith in the world. Saying he's got a history of psychiatric problems is a bit of an understatement don't you think?
  • Another day, another moron. Here's a tip: If you're going to steal things, try not to beat up your girlfriend afterward. The real shocker there is that FOOTBALL TICKETS are valued over $10,000. You have got to be kidding me.
  • iPod mini too big for you? Fear not, the mini is no more - now get yourself an iPod nano! Can the iSophagus be far behind?
