Wanted 4th of july Waterfont Jackdaw

Before I get into the 4th of July I wanted to mention I saw Wanted yesterday. I thought it was very good. Yes at the beginning the story did start out a little bit slow. But that part of the story was pretty important because it shaped a lot of the movie. For some of the boys and some of the girls yes Angelina looked amazing in this film. I think all the Tattoos helped. Of course it was a shot um up kind of movie so the action part of it was pretty good. I won't say what the plot twist was (isn't there all ways one in the good action movies) but I liked it and thought it was pretty good. Hey if you like That kind of movie or Angelina you should like the movie. Before the movie there was a preview for the new Mummy movie. I'll admit when I heard that their was a new one I thought "Why" but after the preview this one looks pretty good, oh yeah and Jet Li plays the "Bad Guy" it looks pretty sweet.

So on the 4th of July I did make it down to the Marina. I wanted to get there before I did. I would have like to find some food and check everything out and hear more then just Jackdaw, who where pretty good by the way. I like that he did something with the words about the marina and the fire works. A day or two before that they had the "Grand Opening" where they had all the people down there and ribbon cutting and stuff like that with Clinton and the Mayor. But I had seen it before all that. But it was really cool in person to see ship docked down there and over by the waterfalls and under the bridge. I still had a good time and the fire works where great and Jackdaw was great and I'm glad Riverside Park isn't the only place to see fireworks anymore. I still don't think they will ever beat the old days of the LaSalle Park days but maybe in a few years when everything down there is finished up maybe they will.

the 4th on the 3rd

HAPPY 4th of JULY !!!


Ok so now that the screaming is over I'm not sure what I'm doing tonight. I'm thinking I might go down to the waterfront and go see some more fireworks. I wonder where they shot them off from and what spot would give the best view if I go? So last night I got to go to the Bisons game. Rochester got a big rally and went into the lead late in the game and the bisons did come back with a rally and only wound up tying it and couldn't win the game, so extra innings it was. Bisons wound up losing in the 13th inning hey one more and it would have been like a double header. It was a fun game to watch. I think it was the biggest crowd I have seen there, if it was soldout it was pretty close. Do to the length of the game the BPO shorted what they did. I was behind home plate (hey free tickets can't complain) so seeing the game was pretty good but not the view of the BPO. They did do stuff on the field to match the music like they had people in Star Wars outfits to match that music and they had girls doing handsprings and other types of flips when they played some music from the olmypics and then they had a nice part with a flag and different people from different branches of the military all in all I had a great time but my pictures on the camera don't look so good. The fire works where nice but I was surprised that they didn't end with like 100 fireworks going off at once to a "Supper American" Song. All in all it was a great time I would pay to go next year, but that is like a year away so lets not get that far ahead. Oh on a side note maybe after the weekend I'll put up fire works pictures, and if you want to see pictures of Ashville NC I have them up on my webshots page.

Biltmore Estate vacation



Hopefully the above link should lead you to all the pictures that I posted of the Biltmore. I wish i could explain all the detail that goes into the wood inside and how huge the dinning room is and all the cool old books they have and there is a pool inside. The place is really amazing inside. Then of course there is the outside as well and the gardens. There really is a lot to see there, not to mention we just went to the one area. I know I can't post all the pictures here but here is what I hope will be a good random sampling with a bunch of pictures.

I guess I should try to explain that there are statues kind of next to the house and I forget what that is called. Then there was the italian garden where they had the stuff growing and different statues. Then there is also the walled garden and conservatory I think they called it. But Knowing how to take pictures of that is kinda tough. Do you take a long shot that shows everything or do you go for the close up on the flowers and plants. In any event it is a cool place to check out and have fun taking pictures. Now all I have to do is figure out how to get them all printed, HA, not to mention all the wedding pictures and pictures of the sky and from the plane, then post wedding pictures. Ok here are some more pictures.

It was kinda interesting leaving Cary not Carey yesterday. I thought I saw a couple developments with her last name on them, or at least it looked like it was close enough at high speed. There are some really nice houses in that area. I do wish when in cary we would have done more like go to Durham or Reliegh but it was also nice to not do anything also. The first day with all the getting lost and travel would have needed to be mellow anyways. It was nice to run into (e:Libertad) it would have been nicer if I wasn't in the Baggage area, since the airlines lost my mother bag, it was found and delivered today. I thought I saw (e:matthew) going down summer on his bike but is was quick so I wasn't sure. All in all it was a good vacation when I have more time I would like to put up my cloud pictures from the plane.

I'm in Cary NC that is

So currently I'm relaxing in Cary NC relaxing about to go out to a Buffett. For those that read my previous Journal I got to the Biltmore eventully and we only went to the house. It is truely amazing. I can't really explain the detail of the wood and how fancy it is inside, and you can't take in door pictures but when I get back I will post the ones of the outside it really was amazing. Then later that night was my cousins weeding and that was pretty nice to. I don't dance so the after part wasn't as fun for me as it was for others but still had a good time. Then the next day there was a nice brunch and I enjoyed that and we got to see ashville it looked like there was a pride Celebration in one of the town squares but that isn't the only thing a rainbow means. Oh I think the most interesting or funny thing was a lady and guy who had cute little dogs at the builtmore and one had pearls and they shared their ice cream with the dogs wish I had a picture of that. Well hope everyone had a great weekend.

Posting when I don't want to be....

So I'm in Ashville NC for a weeding, well if we ever get there. The reason I'm on (e:strip) using the computer in the lobby is because the CAR died. I hate cars sometimes and don't even drive. We are waiting to see if someone from road side service shows up to check it out. Be are supposed to go to the Butimore (how ever you spell it) Estate and it looks pretty cool, but first they have to get here and see if they can get the car to work, maybe soon I hope. I hope it is something simple and can be fixed quickly so we can be on the way. It is odd that last trip we got locked out of the car so it is a little frustrating. But other then that so far NC has been good. Flying isn't to bad just going through security can kinda blow. Oh yeah they lost my bag but it was found and the airline dropped it off at the nice hotel free of charge. It is odd right across from the hotel there is a Church. That is not the odd part, it just sticks out with kinda the suburb feel of things to the left and right of it with lots of room and some crosses. I wish I was more clear kinda sorry. On the flying I just wish you where allowed to use electornic devices during landing and take off cause that is when pictures would be the best. Hopefully when I get back I will post pictures of some of NC. In terms of the built more I think out pictures are fine but not interior well we shall see. Well we shall see.

Dethklok

So again for anyone that reads my blog like the last one I have to say sorry for no photos but maybe some people who took pictures last night will post them on the web a search will bring them up. I called about 4pm and they didn't know if cameras were allowed since it is up to the band. No since I don't live in Downtown Buffalo nor do I have a car if the policy is no Cameras then I would be screwed so I just didn't take it. I have to admit that the lineup before the show was pretty interesting, in a you had to be there kind of way. The concert sold out as I was in line.

I wish I knew enough about music to do a pro write up and say what kind of metal everything was. The first band was Soilentgreen I thought they played pretty heavy and where pretty good, oh yeah and they have some cool looking merch also. The second band was Chimaira who I have heard of any I would guess knew one of there songs and they where really good also. I wish I knew how to describe there sound. There was a lot of head banging and people in the pits and crowd surfing and all that good stuff you get at a metal show. The Headliners where Deathklok. By that time my hearing was a little damaged and understanding vocals was pretty tough. That being said Dethklok was amazing. The players from the show where on stage with the cartoon on a screen in the background you mostly saw the screen but you could tell the players looked nothing like the band, but that was still cool. They did have a story about the band playing the concert and a couple times had Deathklok on stage and then when they left the players left also. The only thing is from where I was standing the screen on stage looked like it had a middle section that was different then the other two sections but it didn't hurt the cartoon that much. I was surprised that I didn't see anyone at the show in costume. There were some other little cool parts that I won't give away. That being said I think that after season two they should tour again. The other thing that I would like to see is one of there concerts on DVD that would be cool maybe even make it into a movie where you see the animated band backstage and stuff. The band was awesome and the show is awesome and I had a great time. Yes there where mostly dudes and most ladies where with dudes but I'm sure there where some who weren't with guys. I would advise any one who can go see Dethklok to do so it is a pretty cool tour.

Hatebreed And More

So last night I got to go see some Heavy Music and I had a good time. Do to the timing of it I didn't get to take my Camera but turns out I could have but didn't know that before hand. I would loved to take pictures of people in the pit during Hatebreed, it looks pretty wild and I did see a few people and this one cute chick take a pretty hard slam of course I don't know how hard to floor really is. So for those of you who read my multiple blogs or look at my pictures sorry I didn't get any it would have been good to have some at least of some of the fine ladies and I don't just mean the thin as a rail ones or the hottie bar tender.

The opening band was I guess a hardcore band from Cleveland called Scalrea. I liked them but think maybe I've seen them open up before but not sure. they were followed by 3 inches of blood. I only knew one of their songs but they where really good. I guess they way to describe them is the singers sound high pitched like Rob Halford and the guitar is really good, the one guy kinda looks like a young James Hatfield from the early days of Metallica. I don't know how they sound On a CD but live they where amazing. The two Headliners where Type O Negative and Hatebreed. I used to listen to Type O but it has been some time, I don't know how to describe there sound really it is kinda I don't know but it was a good time. I talked to someone before they came on and had a nice time, hey if you are reading this is was a nice time. The reason I say that is there where some people there who looked like I have seen them before but that I don't know aka FF or Famiiaur Faces. Even though I was loosing my hearing at that point Hatebreed was really good. And it was nice to rock out get some exercise and watch people in the pit. Hey don't join gym go find a hard rock show every weekend and go run in circles and crash into other people. I admit it isn't my thing but it is really pretty good for you. All 4 bands where good to listen to and Hatebreed was awesome and I got to see Type O Negative and had a great time. The lizard man was pretty cool between acts also. Then On Sunday I get to do it again and go see DethKlok.

More From the Dinner and marina

The dinner was very nice and it was great that there was a good turnout. Some of the pictures where to dark to fix at all and some come out kinda crazy looking so here are some updated or edited pictures. OH yeah I think someone wanted to know how that beer things works it is pretty cool. It costs a certain amount and then you have different choices of beer and it has a little spout at the bottom it is a really cool idea. I also wanted to add that I did see a couple other cameras I do look forward to seeing other people's pictures posted allso.

Hope everyone likes both sets of pictures. I wish I was better with my camera at low level light stuff. I think one interesting thing is it seemed no mater what I did if the TV was in the background that tv part didn't change at all unless it got super bright so I'm guessing that has something to do with why things came out dark.

Art fest and varrious thoughts

I have not downloaded my pictures yet so no pictures yet, I want to wait till after Monday's dinner and then I'm guessing those pictures would be more important any ways. First of all it was nice to see you (e:tinypliny) (twice) I hope you understood that I meant the Kettle Korn was down near Jim's Steak out and Sweet tooth. After I saw you it dawned On me I could have went with you and then gone to sample since they had 2 for 1 Shaken Daquris well I hope you had a good time. (e:carolinian) I hope you and your family enjoy the festival and that you had a good fathers day and got some art you like, I extend that happy fathers day to everyone. I also think I saw an (e:peep) yesterday but I wasn't sure if it was her or not since it is a peep I only know from postings. I also saw (I blanked on her name) That tall blond girl from the party the other night. I did try some food and did like the mini beef on wecks from sample. I bought art that I liked and also saw lots of people who would look pretty on my futon, HA, but they really would. So in my previous post I mention that there are people who want to save the livery and today they had there signs in front of the hotel lenox, I assume because the people who own that building used to own the Lenox and let it fall apart. I wonder how many of those parking places are legit. For example yesterday they where charging to park in Latinos lot and today in was coned off. The other odd thing is that some people where charing to park in the back lot and it was for a different amount of money. So land owned by the same company has two different prices, something was going on there. There was also people with signs protesting Iraq or maybe just war itself or maybe it is how America wants to be an empire. One of the guys there was also at the Pride Parade. It is a good way to get your message out with a lot of people out and about. To the larson's hope you birthdays are great and that you both get to see and spend some time with (e:ladycroft). I will admit that this cluster fuck of thoughts is kinda out there. I still have to find frames for some of the art work I bought I will do a little on line search and see where to buy them who knows maybe with some luck I get that done on tuesday. Hope everyone had a great time this weekend.
