I went to see Wilco at Red Butt(e) Arboretum. This is a little clip from one of their encores. The song is "Outta Mind (Outta sight)" from Being There. My BFF and I took the day off from our jobs and did the day right. The day started a bit hung over for me, even though I don't drink. You get a lot of something from the day before and you kind of feel empty when you wake up the next day because you need s'more. Well, getting up early and going on an ass-kicker of a hike helps you get going. That's where BFF and I got started, hiking to a set of three large waterfalls way up at the top of a canyon behind where I live. Here's me standing in a cool pool at the base of one of the falls.
As you can see I am looking much stronger nowadays and back to looking like the Grunt of old, but better in so many ways. I would show more pics, but my phone doesn't like my computer and I have to email my pics to myself and my allowed data for this month is almost used up. I thought you'd rather see me instead of some stupid wonder of nature. I guess I could qualify as one of those.
After the epic hike, BFF and I had a jam session that involved trying out two of his beautiful new guitars sporting custom BG pups, his "Grunt" modded amp, and two of my Grunt specials--modded Gibson amps from the late '50s and mid-'60s. The involuntary erections were a bit embarrassing. They are known as "tone boners".
After all of this fun, we loaded up on refried beans and caffeine, then to the concert. Let me just say that Wilco is one hell of a live band. Plus, I've never seen so many people drinking wine in one place in Utah in my life. It was a great venue, but too many people wanted to sit down. Freaking old farts! My friend and I were having none of that and rushed the stage the best we could trying to "make sound with our faces", as Jeff Tweedy put it, to support the band. Many more tone boners and gear boners were had between the two of us. It might be considered TIGF on a Monday, if there is such a thing. Hell, I don't care. I had fun and I didn't think bad thoughts about cancer at all today.
