Die, Harvard, Die
Driving through Harvard Square during Harvard graduation? Not so fun.

Finally got a new charger for my cell phone. (end result for my adoring fans? More useless crap to read!) Nobody in town carries name brand nokia chargers, apparently, and the generics literally did not work at all. So i overpaid for a real noe direct from nokia.

This also means that i get drive time music again, which i'd missed. Kristan will tell you I don't give a shit about music -- but that's not really true. I don't care about what music I'm listening to, this is true, but i love music. I love listening to it. I love just laying back with some music on and enjoying it while i read a book, while i'm writing, while i'm coding, etc. It's important to have a soundtrack to my life: it's just not particularly important to me what it is.

Speaking of music, i'm going to the dave matthews band concert in Hartford in 8 days. I've never been to the venue in question - I actually don't think i've ever stopped anywhere in CT for anything I can think of.

Jc leaves tomorrow night: we'll be doing a going away gathering tonight. As far as I know, anyone who wants to come is welcome. Drop us a line if you plan to come.

I did some exploring a couple nights ago of the various ways that LiveJournal has of finding people, and found out that they all suck. Sure, if you only care about online interactions, they're something resembling usable, but as soon as you want to do a search on something combined with a location, you're screwed. I could not, for the life of me, find a way to find people in cambridge interested in some particular interest, for example. The directory search looked like it might work... But then adding multiple filters seemed to just cause it to take the first one. Kinda unfortunate.

Ah well. I'll just have to suffer, i guess.

I'm tired. I want a vacation.

At the Meadows? Or whatever the new corporate name is? It's a decent venue in a bland part of the city, mostly surrounded by brownfields, car dealerships, and establishments with names like "Cheetahs" and "The Luv Boutique." It's typically known for being the site of the rowdiest DMB shows because white kids from the suburbs – and you don't get much whiter or much suburban than Greater Hartford – like to go all three nights and incite riots. They're usually good for flipping cars and lighting things on fire. I used to go every year for the lulz. (Dave Matthews actually makes a lot of jokes about the Hartford shows during interviews. It gives us a sense of local accomplishment.) They've considered the Hartford shows for live albums just about every year, only to scrap those plans once the PA system becomes overloaded with police yelling "Kids, stop throwing your friends over the fence" and "If everyone could stop chucking water bottles full of dirt, we can get back to the concert."

So...have fun! And bring bail money.
