I’m on a week vacation from work this week. Much needed and appreciated. We are staying home and getting things done around the house. There’s nothing I enjoy more than being home with my family. I think it’s super important for the kids to have me and my wife both here as much as possible. I only took one week off earlier in the year when our daughter was born, and this week was needed. We were originally supposed to go to The Killers concert in St. Augustine, but as I said in an earlier blog post, it got cancelled.
For some reason, The Killers cancelled their St. Augustine concert that was supposed to happen tonight (10/1). I found out about the cancellation pretty quick, but we had good tickets and were really excited about going. #Bummer.
I scored two tickets, thanks to my good buddy Jerry who never seems to miss a LIVE music show. The Killers are one of my favorite bands, and I only found out about the upcoming show the day before tickets went on sale. My wife and I are really looking forward to going.
This would’ve been awesome to see in person. I don’t even want to know what computer program someone used to choreograph these flying robots.
He is one of the best songwriters in the past 20 years, maybe one of the best songwriters ever. I got the chance to see him LIVE for the first time this past Sunday, thanks to my very awesome significant other for getting me tickets for a Father’s Day gift. This was my first Father’s Day as a dad. I haven’t mentioned yet that we now both have our first child, a beautiful baby girl. She is awesome and fun! Anyway, she knows I like Jason Isbell and surprised me with tickets. Granny (my mom) babysat for us. It was a great show, and we got free upgrades on our seats because my company was catering the show for Jason and his opening act, the legendary Marty Stuart, so we ended up in the pit, not from from the stage at all. Marty and Jason were both great, but I really wish Jason Isbell would’ve played Decoration Day, and Outfit, two of my all-time favorite songs. He must be tired of performing them all the time, because he didn’t do either of them. Oh well, still a great show.
I’m was off work early-ish last Saturday night, and home in time to watch Conor McGregor vs Dustin Poirier 3. I fully expected Dustin Poirier to win, but I did not expect McGregor to break his leg like he did. That kind of injury usually happens when someone throws a kick that gets blocked, but Saturday night, McGregor just kind of sat back on his butt when his calf/ankle folded over. Whatever caused it, that kind of shin injury seems to be happening more often in recent years. I remember when we first started seeing it in MMA, it was (and still is) one of the most gruesome injuries in the sport. I think the first one I remember seeing was Jose “Pele” Landis-John vs. Brian Gassaway back in 2005, then Corey Hill in 2008 (RIP), Anderson Silva, etc…
I’ve had this domain (perryandrews.com) for years, probably close to two decades. Once upon a time I had a cool blog and posted interesting things, weird videos, and old photos. I had a photo gallery of vintage collectables. Somehow I let my hosting plan slip away a few years ago and it all went away. I kept the domain name, but everything online was gone. I still have some old database back-ups, not sure how complete they are, though. One day I’ll try to get someone to come over and see if they can integrate my old stuff here, or just get my old blog going again. Otherwise, here I am, back again, but starting from scratch. Which, really isn’t a big deal. I will still do cool things on here.
