Flying sardine cans

Back from this weekend's little excursion to visit a bunch of track wh0res and attend the wedding of one of our fellow old-school car sluts.

Congratulations, Shing and DeAnne!

Heck, a great many of us ancients who gathered at later (okay, much later) became maxima.org were there, many of whom dated all the way back to Evan's Maxima SE page in 1996 or so... that includes: Tim and Debbie, Hector, Jamie, Jesse and Michelle, Matt and Kelly, the Fobart brothers Ryan and Jason, Al and Delores, Sage and Jen, Mario and Valerie, Randy, Russ, Justin and Cheriosioux (did I spell her name right? o_O ), and of course, Shing and DeAnne.

We missed Booker, Craig, JJW, Dan, Jim W, Mark, Bill, and the others who couldn't make it. Or in Booker's own words, LOSERS WHO COULDN'T GO TO HOUSTON THIS WEEKEND.

Pictures!

Fun stuff. big grin

(BTW, airlines did a good job of keeping their airplanes full this weekend. I felt alternately like a sardine and a cow in a herd of cattle whenever I was packed on a narrow-body Boeing this weekend.)

U2, now with added vitamins!

Short and sweet for now.

U2 @ Arrowhead Pond 4/1. No video, although I do have 1 clip I could post. I still need to update the index with 2 additional pictures, too. Sophia and I were on the floor (WOOHOO!!!). *grins*

U2 @ Staples Center 4/6. This is just a bare index for now... I'll fill it in later. A crapload of video since I actually had a seat. =P Pics are shakey since it was dark and using 6x optical zoom under such conditions is not a good idea.

The Ocean
New Yearís Day
Beautiful Day
Miracle Drug

U2

U2!!!!!!!!!!

1) U2 puts on an incredible show. (as we expected...)

2) Los Angeles crowds suck. (as we expected...)

3) The crowd was so bad, they weren't even loud enough to get U2 to come back for an encore! (we did not expect that!)

More later... my ears are buzzing and my throat is not liking me for all the yelling and cheering I did last night... if it's any consolation, Sophia's not in much better shape than I am... =P

Set list, per U2.com.

Love And Peace
