      I was going to ask Cote if he ever saw pics of her on his pedo sites to please let me know, but I didn't. Me no mad bro.

      I just mind ****ed a guy with his own words.

      Don't bring a pen and paper to a meeting where I bring a stack of your dumbass emails...

      "I never directed you to do that"

      "I'm pretty sure you did"

      "I don't have any record of it"

      "Oh, here - -- have this, I brought a copy for you." Problem?

      I got married last week.

      My job is secure.

      I played golf on Monday for the first time in over a year and still got 3 pars.

      I'm going to see one of my favourite bands (Portishead) on Sunday. They very rarely tour the US.

      Okay, it was mostly at Barry, but I lumped you in because you didn't add me on LinkedIn.

      Someone trys to F me out of money by claiming "I never directed you to do the extra work"

      People who do this should be sure to give their directions via telephone, whose conversations can be denied, rather than thru emails ----which, while they can be deleted off of YOUR computer, don't get deleted from MY computer.

      Saw Opeth finally. Haven't made it to one of their shows. God I love metal bands, even if they played mostly prog rock.

      Between the Buried and Me next Sunday at the House of Blues (one of the best venues around, in my opinion) AND I've arranged a ride to and fro.

      This game may as well be rigged, because this is CLEARLY going to be a success.

      You like Opeth?!? Sweet. I saw them about a year ago. Wasn't the best show to move around to, but damn can those guys rip. Sounded exactly like their albums.

      Hell yes. That's the album that got me into them. Their new album is pretty good, not too much variety or intensity though.

      Opeth is a show I've wanted to see. Need to see when they will be near me...if they are playing mostly prog, I will probably enjoy it more. Huge DT fan here

      They played Boston on the 10th of last month. Mangini is a monster, straight up. And he solo'd. Mind still blown.

      BTBAM rocked my face off. HUGE SUCCESS! Also heard some Animals as Leaders at that show. Slap guitar sounds incredible. Success on their part, because I'll probably pick up an album shortly.

      Thanks man!
      I just come back from a small tour in France where we played an important showcase in Paris. It went really well, the crowd loved us and the industry people present too! Our manager is now working with people from UK, Germany and Netherlands to get us a booking deal there, there is a lot of interest!

      We also had the chance to open for some pretty big bands in France, in venues with more than 2000 people, it was a lot of fun!

      Everything's going really well for us at the moment! I guess I could say:

      I just want to reiterate how effing AWESOME Between the Buried and Me was. Holy ****!

      I got all the way up to the gate, which was a huge success. I always end up like 2 rows back and those last to rows are damn near impenetrable. AND my girl didn't get crushed by the crowd. It was definitely the best show I've seen them play yet. The setlist included all my favorites, Blake took a solo spot, Paul got up on top of the shred box and took liberty in melting the crowds faces off. My buddy got a boot to the face during the opening act, got taken outside and made it all the way back up to the gate just in time for BTBAM to set up. All around, an incredible event.

      Props to the guy above^^^. Major respect for artists who can perform live.

      After waiting a week, I heard back from an interview I went on. They wanted me to come back for a second interview this past Tuesday. Interview went well, then while at my part time gig bartending I got a call from them telling me that I got the job. I told my boss at the end of my shift that it was my last shift.

      I started my new job yesterday!
