Update from last post: My dad's ankle surgery was successful, and he's at home recovering. He's gonna get his money's worth for his Netflix subscription in the coming weeks; in other words, the recovery process is going to suck, so please continue to pray.

I grew up in a tiny town that's about as far away from a major city as you can get in the Lower 48 states, so no bands ever played anywhere near me.

Seeing DKM is actually on my list of Things I Must Do Before I Die; it's definitely a big deal and I'm pumped. I'll post pics if I get any good ones.

*This post could go in so many different directions here, like how scary it must be to raise a teenage girl in today's society, or the merits of young people travelling and gaining independence from those experiences, or how road trips rock but cost a shit-ton of money. Instead, my attention span will tell me to not explor any of those topics. I'll probably go play some Deal or No Deal instead.
The Greatest Hot Take Ever - I could have hot takes on the fact that the Royals swept the Angels starting on Good Friday and ending on Easter, is that a consequence? I mean the Royals ...
