Once You Have Seen It You’ll Never Be the Same: A Very Brief Update

Just time for a brief update, because…

I’M GONNA SEE METALLICA TONIGHT!

This is a Bucket List item, for sure, even though Lars makes me wanna punch things, and they haven’t released a great album since 1988, and I don’t actually have a Bucket List. I love Metallica’s first 3 albums like they were my own children, and I love their 4th album like it was my own child’s best friend, and I like their 5th album like it was my own child’s best friend’s dad, who is fun to be around sometimes, but who always wears out his welcome sooner or later.

The rest of their albums have some decent-to-good moments, and I tolerate them like they were my neighbors – waving sometimes, ignoring other times. Except for Lulu, which is the next door neighbor who has a yard full of junk and stares at you when you walk by his house and insists that the property line is 3 feet closer to your house than it really is. Fuck Lulu, and fuck that imaginary neighbor.

St. Anger is a cousin who can be fun to hang out with sometimes, except when they start to talk about politics.

Anyhoo, I’m fuckin stoked about this show, friends, and I’m stoked about the people watching that will accompany this event. Rumor has it John “Johnny “The Coug” Cougar” Mellencamp is playing a show in Louisville tonight as well. Maybe he’ll scowl at me for no discernable reason from across a restaurant, like he did one time at Chipotle.

I’ll surely be back with an update sooner or later. Until then, stay heavy.
