The weekend (plus a few days before and after) was awesome. It included Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, Shaun of the Dead, and Hot Fuzz on the big screen at Central Cinema, an awesome wedding at the Woodland Park Zoo, and amazing house show with 11 bands and tons of friends, and the annual "best 4th of July party ever (until the next one)" at the house of [ profile] random_girl and [ profile] grandmoffdavid.

I've been playing bass again. Three friends and I decided to put together a band and mess around and see what comes of it. We've had three practices in three weeks so far, and while we're still not good, we're definitely better than when we started. It's a very cool, low-pressure situation since we're all either (a) brand new to playing our instruments (which includes vocals) or (b) haven't played them in 7+ years. So we're just figuring things out together as we go.

G+ v. FB: Watching yet another new tech product shatter people into warring tribes is extremely annoying. It's just another piece of evidence that nerds can turn anything into a religious conflict. (See also Xbox v. PS, Mac v. PC, LJ v. DW, iOS v. Android, Indie v. Trad, Marvel v. DC, Trek v. Wars).

There's a new tech war? Maybe I'm glad I've been mostly camping for two weeks.

Yeah, it's just Google's new social networking site Google+. Depending on who you ask it's either going to systematically destroy everything we hold dear, or it's the only thing keeping Facebook from eating all our babies.
