Woah

From about 11AM until 5PM, avoision.com went down because I had exceeded my bandwidth allotment. Which, I’d like to note, is set at 50GB/month. I only recently found out about this cap, but figured I wouldn’t ever reach it. Oops. So… I forked over some more money, and bought some additional bandwidth. 10GB to be exact. Hopefully, this’ll last until…

Spending all of today with

Spending all of today with my head inside Flash, working on the next version of Stu’s site. I’ve got pics from the Columbus trip, but just haven’t had time to go through all those just yet. I’ll try to update this thing later on tonight.

I crashed out at

I crashed out at Juliet’s, in her guest room. I had the luxury of sleeping in and, on waking, came across the collected poems of Bill Matthews – which was a lovely way to while away a bit of time. Everybody needs an apple a day. I realized, right before I left, that I hadn’t taken all that many pictures…

The Attic

3:00AM. This is the attic in Mike’s place, where most of the rehearsals took place. We hauled all the equipment up here, and I stopped to take a few shots of the place. Not an overly spacious area, but perfect for a few guys to get together and make music. Mike’s done an awesome job of decorating the walls, and…

Cropchecker: Andyman’s Treehouse

Andyman’s Treehouse. This venue is tucked away between some industrial-looking buildings in Grandview. It’s remarkably close to the first apartment complex I lived in, and time has done nothing to help me remember where this place is. As far as I can recall, I was only ever been here once (most of our drinking took place at Larry’s Bar, Grill…

Dinner and a Visit

Juliet got off of work around 5PM, and we all hung out at her place for a bit. We ordered a pizza, and she ended up making a fruit smoothie that we split. Nerd that I am, I ended up taking a lot of video and pictures of the whole process. Now, some days after the fact, I’m thinking that…

Columbus Percussion

Stopped in to Columbus Percussion, so Matt could pick up a few things prior to the show. I spoke with a few of the folks behind the counter, and they were cool with me taking pictures inside the store. I had no idea there were this many different types of sticks. One of the things I love about music stores…

Searching for Food

Matt and I stopped by the famous Taco Ninja, hoping to grab some grub… but unfortunately, the place was closed. The actual restaurant is housed inside a bar, and this is the resplendent entryway. Ninjas don’t need fancy signage – they just need a dark doorway to sneak into! So instead, we head to one of Matt’s favorite Chinese restaurants…

Starting 1:30 PM EST, I’m

Starting 1:30 PM EST, I’m in Cowtown, here to check out a band my friends Matt and Mike are in: Cropchecker. If you’re in Columbus, and would like to hear some tunes, swing on by Andyman’s Treehouse tonight. And that offer still stands: if you find me, come on up and I’ll buy you a round.

Poker Madness

Around 7:00 PM Chris and I drove out to the burbs, and entered in a poker tournament with some of Ben’s friends from church. $10 buy-in, and I walked into the thing fairly cocky, thinking I’d do pretty well. Fast forward ninety minutes, and I get knocked out about halfway. Chris holds on a bit longer, but the two of…

From: AnnTo: FelixSubj: golly Hey, Listen, sister, youíre not mad I called you a dork, are you? Come on, I didnít even make fun of the Annie reference… Just be glad I didnít type a whole page of “Ann is bored. Ann is bored.” a la The Shining, which, on a night like tonight, Iím fairly driven to do. —–——–

Kind of a Big Dork

From: AnnTo: FelixSubj: misc. Felix, Now sorry I have been so remiss in the quick response department. The quarter just started, so thereís been syllabus writing, arguing with the library reserves people, students clamoring to get in my class because the other instructors are on crack… blah, blah, blah. Actually, one of the other instructors spends a good deal of…
