Total mayhem

I'm a huge fan of The Henry Rollins show on IFC and sat down late last night to watch some of the old musical performances on the IFC website. Good stuff.

Here are a few favorites:

My most favorite song by Frank Black

A great tune by Deadboy and the Elephantmen (if you're not familiar with them, do yourself a favor and check 'em out)

And while I can't claim to be a fan of Placebo (I know nothing about them, actually), they did an amazing cover of Kate Bush's song, Running Up That Hill.

Anyway, there are lots more that thoroughly I enjoyed at the IFC site, but I'd be posting all day long if I listed them all. Good stuff, you should check it out!

My post output will be significantly decreased this week because total mayhem is about to ensue. Shopping today with family (my relatives from Florida are in town for Carly's wedding), Bachmann and Okkervil River Wednesday, rehearsal and the usual day-before-the-wedding stuffs on Thursday, Carly's wedding on Friday night, my birthday Saturday, and Dave and Kate's wedding on Sunday. And because they're getting married at an art museum in the middle of nowhere, we're all staying overnight into Monday. I'm closing the shop on Tuesday of next week because if I don't get a decent day off in here somewhere I'm going to drop dead.

So that's that. I'll be back soon with lots of pictures here and there of the events. I have a few now of Carly's bridal shower from yesterday and of the defunct bachelor party from Saturday night, but I haven't sorted through them yet.

Hope you crazy kids are well. I miss you!

I can't believe Carly's getting married! It sounds like a week of that really exciting, fun mayhem, though. I'm coming up to spend some time with Bre before she goes back to Florida -- I'm surprising her (I don't think she reads your blog...)

Have fun! Hang in there...

I know! It's crazy, isn't it? And Bre's next!

Anyway, yes, this week, while totally overwhelming will be fun, I'm sure. I'm having way too much fun with Nancy, Ned and Rob being home, too.
