On a scale from 1 to "Utterly Kicking My Ass", this week is definitely dragging me behind the middle school and throwing me a beating...

The moral of the story is...stop putting your hands out for handshakes you filthy animals!

Over time I've grown accustomed shaking the gross, unclean hand of a random stranger despite not liking it at all

Now, when I really don't want to be touching stranger hands, my default reaction to a presented hand is to shake it and say "we shouldn't be doing this"

Apparently, today is national Daughter Day here in the US...which is a perfect day to celebrate something amazing mine did this week: gave birth to my second grandchild, my first grand-daughter. Congratulations Ber and welcome to the world Cassie! ♥️

I didn't pay this last night, but here are the acts I caught yesterday. @mothermothermusic was an amazing start to the day, but seeing Flaming Lips for the first time was the highlight of the day.

Alright @RiotFest, let's do this!

You know those stories of parents summoning otherworldly power to lift a car off their child? That was the energy of me trying to exit the bed this morning.

I don't know if this message will even send, as I fear that I was a victim of a brutal murder!

I am pain.

Today's shows. I got a later start, but still packed in so many great acts!

In this story, I was successfully baited into more than 60 minutes in the pit getting my ass kicked by hundreds of youthful, fit, rage-filled toddlers.

It was an amazing set, but I might need to visit an ER. 3/3

Now reader, if this was a good story, it would be about how I brushed that insolence off and had a great show way in the back.

If it was a tale of heroism, it would be about how I got in that pit and showed those whippersnappers what's what.

Unfortunately... 2/3

As I was headed to the front rail for Rise Against I heard "hey, old man, you getting in the pit?"

I pointed out that I was a bit old for that and he agreed that it was "probably for the best"

I'm sorry...what? 1/3

From birdsite 

I thought it was cool that @eMpyre_ramireX did this, so here was my exhausting, rainy yesterday. I didn't see all of each set, obviously, but I caught at least two songs from everything circled!

From birdsite 

At the hotel and my body is questioning the wisdom of an out of shape fat guy with a bad back lifting all those people.

Mistakes were made.

From birdsite 

Can confirm, currently being rained on in front of @Coheed! It's really soothing on the sunburn...

From birdsite 

During @MotionCityMusic I found my pit calling: I'm the edge on the pit that keeps the kids on, and if you look at me and say "up?", you--my friend--are going up!
