Axe Kick, Round Kick, Straight Kick

Oregon has some great place names:
  1. Talent
  2. Idiotville
  3. Needy
  4. Not just the famous town of Boring, but the Boring Lava Fields nearby
Last night B and I had our first date-sans-the-kid since she was born almost two years ago.  We saw Magnetic Fields on their current tour playing at the Roseland.  The opener was some folky flappy dorkus, but the Magnetic Fields were wunderbar.  I have been a big-time fan since high school, so I was very dialed-in with the whole set list.  Revelations for B and I included the really, really impressive musicianship of the band members, the band's ability to play the crap out of the slow, sad, pretty songs in a live setting, and the fact that Stephen Merritt played a pump organ the whole time (in past tours he's generally played ukelele.)

It's been a pretty exhausting couple of weeks.  Life stuff going on (notes on that at a later date), insane weather (very cold, full-on snow action yesterday / last night), intense work stress.  Plan to up the chicken sacrifices in order to bring about positive change.

Forget what you two did, how did C take to the babysitter?
