"They have exiled me now from their society and I am pleased, because humanity does not exile except the one whose noble spirit rebels against despotism and oppression. He who does not prefer exile to slavery is not free by any measure of freedom, truth and duty." --Kahil Gibran
I would like to welcome everyone to day one of our new crusade, "Save your neighborhood Byron from oppression in the workplace". If you do not have neighborhood Byron feel free to support me in this charity. For just 50 cent a day, the price of a cup of coffee, you can help a Byron cast off the chains of tyranny and live life as it was meant to be lived. Right, so your probably not going to send me money but the idea of mooching off the world does seem kind of appealing. I must say that we were lucky to get out of yesterday in one piece. If I had a dollar for every time I said OMGISFW (Oh my god it's still fucking Wednesday) I would be a rich man. Driving home in 60 degree sunny weather I must did help a lot. Then we (we being Brie, Steve, Bone, and myself) polished off the rest of the evening by playing a ruckus game of darts and having a rather enjoyable burrito. 7 or 8 beers later I felt alright. It was so enjoyable that today after work my father and I are going to enjoy a little father-son bonding time and play some more darts at The Wellington. By the way y'all should check out that link it is totally lame.
As pictured above, today's band of the day is The Old 97's. As you all can see I have been a quite a big alt.country kick for some god knows why reason. I have been jammin to these guys at work lately and I thought they deserved a spot on the blog. I also really wanted to use this picture of them playing at The Fez because of the cool guy sportin' the yellow trucker hat. Yeah trucker hats. Ali I am sure that you would agree with today's choice being a Rhett fan. I must say though seeing the band is concert was way better than seeing Rhett Miller solo opening for Tori Amos. The band was solid but Rhett rushed through all of his songs at a lightning pace. Songs of note that I enjoy are "Oppenheimer", "Four Leaf Clover" and "Barrier Reef". Give em a whirl. They are a little to rock to be country, but a little too country to be rock. Good stuff...
