San Diego

I write from San Diego. I came out to see my brother play at his first solo show. I and many others had been encouraging him for years to get out and play his music, and finally last night he did. And it was wonderful. There was a good crowd, and despite some initial technical difficulties he and his back up band put on a good set. I was so darn proud! He calls his solo project Manuok; You can check more info here.

I also saw a couple of other good bands this weekend, including Goodbye Blue Monday and Waterline Drift. The highlight was definitately Goodbye Blue Monday. They build up so much energy that I thought the room would pop.

Also, I have eaten a shit load of mexican food out here (California style mexican food being different than Tex-Mex), and I think that I have concluded that in general, California Mexican Food is better than Texas Mexican Food. Except for the breakfast tacos.

So, all in all it has been a great weekend. I think the key has been spending inordinate amounts of time on the beach. Not bringing my computer along has helped a lot too. Also, I am reading an Evelyn Waugh novel ('Vile Bodies') that is quite laugh-making.
