Weekend roundup: my life is awesome

To begin with, there was much beer, turkey and what-have-you on Wednesday and Thursday. And lunatics to share it all with.

Friday I boiled some Epena (Virola Elongata) bark down into a tea that had mild but pleasant effects. My scale is currently being held hostage elsewhere, so dosage was awkward and resulted in the mild effects. After consuming said tea and waiting a sufficient period of time, we ate and went to the pub because nothing had happened. As soon as I ordered a beer and started drinking it, things started getting a little weird. I took my beer outside and sat in the 50’ish degree rainy weather instead of the hot, loud and crowded bar. I managed to drive us home after an hour of hanging around downtown. Then I laid in bed with my thoughts and awoke the next day extremely refreshed. (Epena contains mostly 5meO-DMT with some trace N,N-DMT. I also mixed in some Syrian Rue for MAOI.)

I saw The Drownout and The Blackline on Saturday. One of my good friends promotes shows and booked it. The Blackline opened, and before they even hit the stage she says to me, “This first band is like 17. They’re dad is right over there.” Seventeen they might be, but they’re very entertaining. The acustics in the place is kind of poor. The kid on the drums was amazing. The Drownout was just really, really, really good. They’re set was high-energy, loud and fun. I was kind of reminded of Coheed & Cambria and Sparta. And their keyboardist also busts out a keytar for a few of the songs, which is always welcome in my book.

Sunday I saw Avenged Sevenfold, Buckcherry and Shinedown. Saving Abel played too, but I got there after they were done. Buckcherry is as faggoty as you might expect them to be. Shinedown had good stage presence, but all the performance kind of washed the music out -which was mediocre to begin with. Fuck posturing during a show. Just fucking play. That’s basically what A7x did, with a short pause to say hi or whatever -they cut their set in half and bailed early, too, after playing a few of their more popular songs. I guess I just don’t listen to them that much. I have “Waking the Fallen” from whenever they started to get big in the punk scene. They put on a really good show, still. I can’t argue with it.

If this blog were anonymous, there would be some much more entertaining anecdotes to accompany each day. However, I defer to not offending those who made the weekend truly entertaining. Except Marty. I’ll call Marty out because he fried the thanksgiving turkey.
