The beginning of the end for the White Stallion

He was my ticket to freedom over a decade ago. A 16 year old with wheels - better watch out. With his shiny white coat and gold trim, he was easy to find at all hours of the night as I perennially forgot where I'd parked. He saw me through thick and thin as I drove and then lived halfway across the country.

Lately, we'd drifted apart as I moved to the very pedestrian and car unfriendly Boston/Cambridge area... Yet, this would have been the last few great years of a fruitful partnership. And I feel like I've been neglectful... As, sadly, this is the beginning of the end for the White Stallion...

Girl Talk

I saw Girl Talk on Monday and it had to be one of the best shows I'd been to. First off, this guy had more energy than anyone I've ever seen. He spent the whole show dancing around while mixing, climbing the on the table, crowd-surfing, basically energizing the crowd. The audience was invited up to the stage to be right up with him as dudes with converted leaf-blowers shot toilet paper all over the arena,

The show had sold out the day tickets went on sale I believe, and the place was packed. The only downside was the length - we could have all rocked out for hours more, but the show was about 1:40 in total. Lame. Will go again the second that he announces he's coming back.

Here's a vid from the show someone posted:
