Buffalo Chapter BLS

Last night I went to see Black Label Society and had a great time. They where really good and really loud. It should be interesting to see when my one ear fixes itself and dosn't ring anymore. I forget the name of the opening band somethin like santuary or something like that they were pretty good to. The only thing is that it was hard to Here what Zakk was singing . I'm not sure if it was where I was standing that the drums where so loud. But to me his vocals and guitar kinda blended togather. I could here is voice but couldn't make out a lot of what he was saying, I wonder if I was the only one. Oh yeah one other cool thing is that I got to see some of the Hockey game before the concert then in between bands I got to see the end of the game. The Devils got that last second goal and could have tied it but feel short. On a side note I'm not a Devils fan, yeah I used to be for about a month years ago. But they do have a pretty cool Jersey and a pretty good goalie. Oh yeah back to my point one of the Members of BLS Wore a Sabres Jersey for Part of the show. It was the old one with the old symbol (not the blue and gold) of the buffalo. It was #81 it looked like it said Satan. If he where ever traded to the devils I would buy a home and away Jersey and wear it to every Metal or Hard rock show I could. That would be one hot seller. I know it is said like Sh in shit and Tan but still it is spelled Satan and on a Devils Jersey that would be preaty dam cool. Oh yeah back to BLS they did a nice tribute to "Dim Bag" it really was nice. I never take my camera to Town Ballroom because of the pat downs and not really sure if they are allowed I did see some people taking photos so Maybe I should have taken it, oh well.


On a different note:
Saturday Night I have a bandits game to go to so that should be fun vs. the Shamrox and I'm thinking maybe Friday go see Jackdaw but most likely I will just stay home but who knows. There is also some art show fashion show at Diablo that might be interesting not sure about that on friday. Then Sunday I will watch Wrestlemania Yeah it is expensive but it should be a great time. So I wish everyone a early happy weekend.

BLS

Firstly I admit I only have one Black Label Society CD but they are in town on Wends. So I have to go see them at the Towne Ballroom . For some time they had the prefix of "Zax Wilde's" but I think they drop that not sure. I have no idea who the opening act is or if there is one or two but it should be a good time in any event. I'm tempted to go right from work and then go to T.G.I Fridays for dinner it sounds like a good idea. Oh yeah I must also get cash so I can buy merch. I guess that is all I really have to say, hopefully one of these days I'll have an exciting post but oh well.

Photo theme

Recently photos have kinda been a theme and it is kinda odd in a way. A couple posts back I mentioned that I keep pictures in photo albulms and that it took a long time to put them away. Well tonight I have about 120 to do that with but it shouldn't take to long I hope. But where things get interesting is that last night Photos the theme in the Simpsons there was an entire thing about the Paperazzi . But what started it all was that they got a fire safe and put the photoalbulm in it and a fire starts in the safe and destroys all the pictures. Then then get the idea to re-stage all the pictures. Yes they did say re-stage meaning that the pictures where staged in the first place. I found that funny cause it implies that they posed for the pictures and that the pictures where what they wanted to see or to remember and not what actually was. This was also a small point in one of the stories on Desperate Housewives weeks ago where they showed people smiling. But it brings up the point that if pictures are only of the happy moments and not of the fist fight that breaks out after the picture or the tantrums and doors slamming that then that stuff doesn't get represented. I understand that you may not want a picture of a kid crying but all the pictures taken of the family or what ever you take shouldn't be just happy stuff and only the gorgeous buildings you see in a city. I'm not saying that you should go to every funeral and wake and take pictures but we often have trouble taking pictures of the tough times. Sometimes it is out of respect or that you know there might be people who don't want there picture taken or don't want that distraction. But As I have learned you often regret not taking those pictures, when you look back on it. Ok I guess my little rant, not that it is really a rant is over.

Bandit Albulms

For those of you who read My last journal or "blog" what ever term you prefer here are two pictures that are not the best but that kinda convey what I was talking about. Oh before I forget I don't want everyone to think I'm a huge Maple Leaf fan that flag I got at a Game I went to years ago when in toronto.

The Bandits did wind up winning the game last night and I had a good time and I shall put up some pictures from the game in random order but first here are the pictures of Downtown Buffalo I took before the game (also on my webshots page). Two of the pictures are of the new R2-D2 mailboxes .

I will admit that it would have been nice if the sabres and bandits would have won But I know that is unrealistic sometimes. But I had a good time here are some shots of the game and some of the Bandettes also.

Pictures and More

First of all before I forget the Bandits Have a home Game on Saturday night Vs. The Colorado mammoth. It should be a good game and it is a vary important game since the Bandits are in second place in there devision. Colorado is in first place in the other devision and I think only has one lose so far.

Last weekend I had a busy and fun weekend with the Car Show, Mat's Birthday and the parade and I took lots of pictures. But one little draw back is how long it took to put all those pictures into a picture album. Yes I use picture albums. I also download the pictures onto a computer and then back them up on CD or maybe the computer is the back up. One cool thing is if you have pictures on a CD is that you can look at them on a DVD player assuming it is one of the ones that is JPEG compliant . I will admit that I don't do it that often but it is still a pretty cool idea. But what my problem is now is that I have to go out and get shelving or some type of bookcase that is big enough for all my albums. I have some small ones and some large ones so finding one that is the right size is tough, but I'm currently looking into it. Maybe I'll find one this weekend I hope.

Oh yeah that is the other thing I wanted to mention On the 28th I'm going to see Black Label Society, that should be a fun time for sure. I forgot the other thing I wanted to mention. So I hope everyone has a great weekend.

I will admit Sunday didn't go as I hoped. I got to the parade late and missed some of Div. 1 but it wasn't really my fault. I also didn't wind up going to see Jackdaw but maybe I should have since I caught the end of the Sabres game and they lost. But I was thinking that it would be way to crowded then I was warm and comfy at home a slept way to early in the day. Here is my view of the parade.

Just wanted to add that those are not all of my parade pictures but a good amount of them. OH yeah I also decided to try firefox 2 and I see it underlines words that it thinks are misspelled and the funny thing is that firefox both times now is underlined. I noticed that now when you click on a link instead of opening another page it opens it as a tab instead that is kinda cool.

St Matts Pictures

First of all the way I upload the pics it dosn't put them in numerical order when you do multiple pics but from looking at the pictures you get the general idea. Also sorry if there is red eye. That is one thing I don't like about my camera even with the red eye setting you still will get some of it. If you don't like how you look in the picture sorry. The thing with the Pictures I take is that there is usaly a few people in them and sometimes people in the background. I know there is one picture of (e:Lilho) that I put up my mistake I was suposed to turn it the other way so when you see that one do it in your mind. I had a good time and as one of the other (e:peeps) said it was a mellow or maybe calm party but still fun. It was nice to see some new faces there, or at least people who I hadn't met before.. I will admit I could have and should have been more social but oh well. I decided to post these today and download what ever pictures I take at the parade on sunday or monday. I think it is awesome that some peeps are getting togather to go to the parade. I think I won't be in those numbers that I'm just going to go with my sister but we shall see. I'm guessiing I may skip Jackdaw as well, but I'll find out later. Ok Here are the pictures.

No pictures Yet

So I had a good time at Matt's party it looked like everyone else did to. I thought it was awesome that two people made him two gluten free deserts. It was a good relaxed time. I got to meet a few (e:peeps) I havn't before and that was preaty cool. Again I should have been more social. All I said to Hilda aka (e:ingrid) was you don't look like your picture. But what should have followed was but like in your picture you are cute. That being said I still had a good time. I'm not sure when i will put up pictures since I have World of Wheels to go to today and then the parade on sunday but Maybe later today. It was great to see some peeps I havn't seen in some time. Hope everyone has a great St. Pats and rest of the weekend.

800 St. Matts

First of allHappy Birthday Matt!!!!
I will be there tonight Having a good time. This is officaly I guess my 800th post. I wanted to wait to have something deep to say. But all I can say is that wow that is a lot of posts. But I wonder is the 800 a big deal or is it really breaking 800 so maybe the next post should be the big deal. I figured my next post would be pictures. That is when ever I have time to put up pictures I havn't taken yet. So I figured I would just make 800 a regular post. I don't really want to talk about how a taco bell comerical has a lion on one of the adds and one lion says to the other looks good and the other one says the man or the taco. I admit that I'm surprised that it hasn't offendend anyone who is stright to call and complain about it. I'm also suprised that they havn't got mail from gays who are offendend. Or maybe if they have they have said they don't care cause all there adds are funny. What got me thinking about this is how someone I know, who I won't say was fliping chanels and found LOGO and got allupset. It isn't a pay chanel and is bounced off a statilate and anyone with one can pick it up. I think it is on most systems and is owned by MTV. It isn't a pay chanel so it can't be graffic, but this friend of mine was so upset they they are going to block it. Maybe it is just me but that is going to far, even if you don't approve. I just wish people wouldn't get so mad about stuff that they personaly disagree with. I think that often in general people belive that there beliefs are right and that anyone who disagrees with them are wrong. I will admit I do slip into that myself and don't even realise it. I'm not saying that you should change or ideas but you should be able to understand that just cause you have differant ideas then someone else that dosn't make them crazzy: cause if it does then you are out of your mind also.

Wow I got off on a tangent sorry about that. Hopefully i'll see some of you peeps tonight. For those that I don't have a great weekend and have a nice Holiday and stay safe.

Busy Up coming weekend

I admit that this weekend will be so busy that I can't remember when Hockey and LAX are on. I know the Bandits play away on saturday afternoon and the sabres are on tonight and friday but I doubt I will see either game. Tonight I will check in on the sabres but I will be watching the Duke game. I will admit that I'm about the only person who likes both Duke and UNC but that is because I'm not from the Carolinas. Oh yeah that reminds me there is no such place as Carolina anymore. There is south and north or the carolinas but to say I've got carolina on my mind dosn't make any sense. My understanding is that if you are from that area you can only like one of those teams and not both. Ok back to my point. On friday Is st. Mats and i will be there drinking and taking pictures and seeing if any crazyness breaks out, should be a great time. Then on Saturday I'm going to hopefully remember to buy a ticket for Spamalot, I should really rent Search for the holy Grail and watch it also some time soon. I also have to go to that Car show they have at the convention center, it looks like it will be preaty cool. Then there is spring cleaning at my mother house that I'm not sure how I got rangled into. Sunday of course is the parade. When I last checked I was going with my sis and one of her friends but not sure. Not sure if I will but I may go see Jackdaw after the parade at club w on Delaware somewhere near the chip strip. If you go to Brokencans.com you can get their concert dates I think they play sometime and Place on Friday and saturday but don't remember when. I am hopefully going to get to watch some more of the NCAA's over the weekend, if I get to see some of the sabres that would be cool to.

The large house in front of the carriage house burned down in the 70's. An article I found about the property cited that 'Matthew' on this site had posted a series of photos called 'Lost Linwood" (article was from 2012). I thought maybe Matthew was still on this site or perhaps someone could help me find the photos. I'd love to see the original house and carriage house
