…to the abandoned, crime-riddled street in Hoboken where we park it. The short ride from the mechanic to my apartment was enough to saturate my clothing with exhaust fumes, which means the TIP van is back to running as normal.
This winter has been so unbearably cold that Fighty has now resorted to wearing a scarf during band practice. Todd was also rocking a mock turtleneck last week, though I’m not sure that was weather related…
In true JTT fashion and right on the heels of Friday’s awesome MJ’s show, the band wakes up early to hit the saloon. Tino, Ryan and I hit the bars good and hard in the AM. Thats right, the copious amounts of booze we slugged down the night before had little affect on Saturday’s festivities…skip the details… An 8 hour bender of day drinking later, ended with me passing out at 9:30PM, Ryan doing about the same and Christopher “pomegranate margarita” Tino prancing home sober as a bird. Nice job Chris, you win this round. This tiny umbrella’s for you.
Ryan and I had an awesome and inspiring time at last night’s killers show. Those guys are so effing good. The show was musically spot on and damn entertaining. They played all the hits and really brought the house down with a “When You Were Young” closer. I’m now voting we drop the whole cover band thing and become a Killers tribute band. I’m sure that’s just the after show euphoria talking but I think DeLange could make a pretty good Flowers if we threw some skinny jeans on him. Shout out to super agent Brad Sheehan who managed to secure awesome seats.
I watched one of the latest offerings from Nick Cage last night and his hair helmet has now become a total distraction for me, bordering on obsession. Forget the fact that his hair is now darker than it was 10 years ago, or that he’s got the Flowbee-meets-Spaceballs helmet head – the luster is what really irks me. In the movie I watched, Nick Cage had shinier hair then his costar Jessica Biel. If you were to ask me right then whose hair I would rather smell based purely on shine and texture, I would go Cage. Still would. That’s not supposed to happen.
