The thing I like about concert recordings is the amusing banter of the frontman. Or maybe that's just Jethro Tull live recordings...
I like that about a couple of bands I like (TMBG, BNL).

What happened, did you look twice? :P

My youngest told her teacher she was going to burn the school down, and then produced a box of matches she took from the house from her backpack.

On the one hand, good use of planning; on the other, holy shit, she is 7.

That is slightly unsettling. I'd suggest hiding any gasoline you might have in the house before she realises you need that to quickly spread the fire beyong the help of fire extinguishers.

This probably has been mentioned, but would it not be possible to have a script to post to the thread without the subsequent redirect and view count increase?

Semi-Blind posting could be interesting.

quite terrible, to be honest.

my wife's car got hit, and totalled for $2500, which is certainly not enough to pay for anything; fighting with insurance companies on multiple fronts; work is kinda overwhelming, and I still have pneumonia from two months ago. Its been a shitty spring so far.

Because the insurance company determined that it was more expensive to fix than it was worth.
