I got hit in the head by a firecracker this weekend... But enough about the BBQ

How are you all?
This is news nowadays, I guess... As funny as it is I would never think that a news article would have the "journalist" trolling 4chan for research. Heh.

How was your weekend? Good.
Mine was interesting. My girlfriend and I went to the Museum of Science and Industry and that was cool. Kinda got a bit boring at times but for the most part it was enjoyable. We then went to see Brad Paisley in concert. I noticed in the gathering crowds quite a few confederate flags and the such. Hey, ignorant hillbillies will be ignorant, right? Nothing you can do about that... What did make me laugh was what happened after this...

Darius Rucker (former lead singer of famous alterna-pop band Hootie and the Blowfish) who has recapitulated himself in to a country singer of sorts takes the stage to a frenzy of applause and devil horns. I then notice that Darius is wearing a Run DMC t-shirt. Do we see the irony here of these idiotic hillbillies being lead in song by a black country artist wearing a Run DMC t-shirt? Oh man! I loved it.
He then covered a Hank Williams Jr song, "Family Tradition."
He also played three Hootie songs - "Let Her Cry" "I Only Wanna Be With You" and "Hold My Hand" so I was familiar with some of the stuff...

I gotta go. A Monday back after a Friday off is crazy busy!
In closing I must say that I'm nervous about the movie adaption of "Never Let Me Go" by Kazuo Ishiguro. It's going to be out in October of 2010, I think... It's starring Kiera Knightley and another Academy Award nominated chick... It looks pretty lame. I suggest you all read the book before every one's telling you how amazing the movie is.
