Rainy thoughts...

Woke up this morning with two cats on top of me, rain slightly drooling outside. Wish we could look ahead and have swapped last Wednesday with Friday - hell of a day then.

Sunday was pretty strange and damn awesome as well. Took Sarah and my aunt and cousin to the Artomatic (http://www.artomatic.org/) - a nine-story art extravaganza with a pretty nice bar and some amazing displays - one of the best 'Peeps' exhibit I've seen - the Reservoir Dogs display with all peeps was pretty inspired :) If you're in the area, definitely see.

Afterwards, we went off to see Radiohead at the Nissan pavilion - 12,000 people, tons of water falling from the sky, and an amazing concert all told. Plus a lot of half-naked folks freezing while trying to get their wet clothing to dry - much body warmth sharing was underway there. Little different from the last time I saw them in Florida :)

Radiohead had this overall structure around them like upside-down organ pipes, that could each be individually controlled to light up / flash in whatever sequence they wanted. Behind them were huge wide-screen screens depicting the group in real-time, but with random colors and backgrounds, so everything seemed like a natural music video - and of course the music was great.

So, kudos for Baltimore - definitely good spot to see music from. REM/Modest Mouse upcoming, Toad the Wet Sprocket (anyone remember them?), plus Filter, Less than Jake and Goldfinger, Trio - definitely a lot of music upcoming around town that I have tickets for. this year - going to go fast.

Random post to waste random time - hope you're all having a great day and an awesome weekend.
