    Kentucky State Fair on Saturday and fingers crossed that our pimento cheese won a ribbon this year!

    The oldest daughter turns 19 this weekend (so hard to believe). Big birthday bash on Sunday.Report

  2. I finished Atlas Shrugged! I am hoping to get the TV set up so that I can watch the first two movies. (No politics.)Report

    No teenager this weekend, so we’re going to do our best not to be deafened tomorrow night (MBV, who Glyph tells me can be somewhat loud), going to a pool party Saturday, and Sunday brunch with a couple friends from grad school who are getting in town late Saturday. All grown ups weekend for the first time in, like, forever.Report

      Calling MBV live “somewhat loud” is like calling the surface of the sun “somewhat warm”. For anyone unfamiliar with them:

      My Bloody Valentine is a plutonium rock band from the Gagrakacka Mind Zones and is generally regarded as not only the loudest rock band in the Galaxy, but also as being the loudest noise of any kind at all. Regular concert goers judge that the best sound balance is usually to be heard from within large concrete bunkers some thirty-seven miles away from the stage, whilst the musicians themselves play their instruments by remote control from within a heavily insulated spaceship which stays in orbit around the planet – or more frequently around a completely different planet.

      Their songs are on the whole very simple and mostly follow the familiar theme of boy-being meets girl-being beneath silvery moon, which then explodes for no adequately explored reason.

      Many worlds have now banned their act altogether, sometimes for artistic reasons, but most commonly because the band’s public address system contravenes local strategic arms limitations treaties.

        1) I love HHGTTG.

        2) Until this year, Ministry was the loudest thing I’d ever heard. Then I went to a dubstep show, with speakers that took up half the club floor, and a sound that made me think I was either having a heart attack, my lungs were collapsing, or I had just been shot with some sort of sound canon. If it is louder than that — this was so loud that I was yelling to my girlfriend and I couldn’t tell if I was making a sound… at all; it was like nothing was coming out, and you usually hear yourself from the friggin’ inside, but this sound was vibrating my very bones to such an extent that my voice had no chance — then we’re going to need bigger earplugs.Report

        I’ve seen Ministry twice, and they are loud. I saw Grooverider in a London club (dark drum & bass, a dubstep forerunner) and it was loud. I’ve seen Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr. (multiple times), and the Jesus and Mary Chain – none of them mess about, when it comes to sheer volume.

        MBV is in another class entirely, not even close. You may want to try wrapping your entire body in bubble-wrap, with a snorkel for air.Report

    I wil be walking in a 5K tomorrow that also involves having “flavor powder” thrown on the runners by “flavor fairies.” My company has a flavor and fragrance division, and I decided to support them. It is the sort of thing I would not normally do, and I consider it good to do things that I would not normally do on occasion.

    Other than that, no big plans.Report

    Flying to Boston on Sunday to present at a conference next week. Tonight we’ll finish watching “The Incredibles” with Alice.Report

    Depending on other factors, I may try to finish Holy Motors tonight. I’ve been watching it in small chunks, not my preferred way to watch a film, but I’ve been so tired it’s all I could manage.Report

    All of what Jaybird said. With bonus sleep for me as I am still recovering from the flight home. (NTS: Next time I go to New Zealand, TWO days off before returning to work…)

    Also probably a lot of sitting around thinking about how much fun I had 😀Report

    Working on the exterior of the house if the power company comes to turn off the power in the morning so we have enough time to get what we need done without electrocuting ourselves and our anniversary date to see Wicked.Report
