You’ve Got Your Ball, You’ve Got Your Chain

Friday is truly an exceptional day.  Knowing that the weekend is only a few hours away somehow fills the soul with a type of lasting happiness that results in high productivity for a while, ultimately tapering off into ellipses.

Tied to me tight tie me up again.  The weekend, as always, promises to be stuffed full with activity.  Keisha and I are driving down to Chattanooga, TN, a 4-hr and time-zone-crossing drive, to see my best friend William and his fiancée Rachel.  They recently bought their first home, which we’ll hopefully be seeing.  We’re also going to the aquarium, so that should be fun, too.

Who’s got their claws in you my friend, into your heart I’ll beat again.  I really like Leonardo Dicaprio as an actor.  He’s phenomenal.  His characterizations are almost always perfect.  And I like a good thriller, especially one that promises to be a bit spooky.  Thus, I want to go see Shutter Island.  Soon, perhaps.  Very soon…

Sweet like candy to my soul.  Sweet you rock and sweet you roll.  I’ve always liked this song.  It’s filled with memorable lines and the music’s beautiful.  In high school I was a big Dave fan, but as I grew older I grew out of his music, namely the American Baby album.  But the dude can write some great songs, and the band has several gems that are worth a listen to.

Lost for you I’m so lost for you…  Major progress in the erosion control plans that I’ve been working on.  After lots of guesswork and self-doubt, I think I’ve finally produced something that looks right.

And you come crash into me.  I do have one question for you, friends.  Have you all received any errors when trying to comment on a post?  I’ve received a few messages from folks telling me they’ve had errors and I’m not really sure why.  I’ve not been tinkering around with HTML or anything.  I’ve not changed anything, actually.  My guess is that it’s some Google maintenance?  Anyway, just curious.

… In a boys dream.  I am supposed to get the PS3 in today.  I don’t see it arriving like it’s supposed to, but hey, FedEx could surprise me.  I’ve sold my 360 now, making back what it cost me for the whole bundle and even a little profit.  I may have a review of Oblivion up next week sometime.

Happy weekend, folks.  See ya where the streets have no names.

I'm a HUGE Dave Matthews fan!! Love him. Have you listened to Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King, their newest album? I love it. It's different than Stand Up which has American Baby. Big Whiskey is a tibute to LeRoi, their Sax player who passed away 2 summers ago. It's a laid back and fun album. In fact, I'm listening to it right now.

No errors for me posting comments.

I've not heard BWatGGK yet, but I intend to purchase it. Definitely seems more Dave than Stand Up did.

What games are you going to get for the PS3? Oblivian obviously, otherwise you wouldn't have mentioned it. A lot of guys at my work say I should get one and then buy Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 since they've been playing each other all the time. I'm hesitant to make such a purchase though since I don't have an HDTV where the Blu-Ray player and games' graphics could really stand out.

So did you beat the main quest on Oblivion? That's one of my favorite all-time games, as you know. You're really missing out by not playing the PC version. With the h-res texture packs, all the new armor/weapon mods, the new houses/castles/regions/dungeons, the intensely realistic weather and landscape overhaul mods... that's just the tip of the iceberg... new magic/spell systems, new alchemy, new guilds/questlines, more realistic economy modeling... so much good stuff...

Anyway, nice post full of randomness. I did get a couple errors trying to leave comments a few days ago, but that's it... we'll see if this one goes through ok!

@Bill: Actually, Bill, I had Oblivion for the 360. I don't think I want it for the PS3. I'll be getting Final Fantasy XIII and the new Fallout game when it comes out for sure. Call of Duty looks fun, but I'll probably wait for a price drop or a rent for that one.

@David: Aye, I beat the main quest. Quite fun and interesting, but the game almost suffered from being too big. I preferred Fallout to Oblivion.
