FFS - it happened again. It is starting to harken back to weird panic I feel in nightmares. I wasn't sure if I was going to hurl or something.. my occasional dejavu is never this violent in reaction.

This better not be some super duper bad omen shit..

Wow.. It must have been an odd visual queue or something, but that sort of oddly triggered near panic attack/gut twisting fear of something surrounding that moment was crazy.

I got up and had to take a lap outside and it still is bugging me.

2014.09.15 (15:06): Ugh.. what the hell?

July 25th it was Filter (with Helmet and Local H) at the Socal.. 90+ degrees and super duper humid...
September 11th it was Offspring and Bad Religion's final stop for the Summer National's tour at Stirr in the rain and cold..


Let's see. That's two.. there was Alice in Chains earlier at Stirr.. Rancid earlier in the year from that.. Motley Cru and Alice Cooper later..

No Pearl Jam.. ugh.. expensive.

I was goaded out of my old man rut and pushed into getting my Offspring and Bad Religion ticket. One hell of a show - even with the drizzle. This was the laura/brett/audrey contingent, and some how I was able to find them in the throng of people.

Great tunes, fun stage performance, but being the last show of their tour you could tell they were all a little worn out.

On the plus side as I was coming up to the show I saw some lady being hauled out by CB PD. Hahaha.. a little too much cheer and anti-authoritarian vibes for her.

It was confirmed.. one of my super duper good friend couples is blowing town and moving to the sunshine state. Like in a month. Fuckity fuck fuck FUCK. I guess T's last day at his job is today.. A's been on a more relaxed roll of her job.

Now who the fuck am I going to see movies with, get comics with, be harassed by furry parrots, and so on?!

God damn it.. change sucks.
