Scorpion

real quick

Clubbin' was big fun.

Got there halfway through the set by In Tenebris. Gothy and cool, I picked up the CD for a song. The Birthday Massacre was indeed awesome, and put on a good show.

Comparing and contrasting: the lead singer for In Tenebris had a better voice than the chick headlining TBM. However, the TBM chick had a lot better stage presence. Also, the band was better for the latter. Not that the first were bad, mind you. They were just both sides of the same coin. Anyways. Kudoes to Nimue for the tip-off on this one.

Thereafter, hung out a fair amount with 224215152 and safetypup. Much dancing was had; just as I was planning to get ready to go, the music kick in to 'good.' So I danced a bit too much, and got here mucho late-o.

More tomorrow, possibly.

"Only in America would grand constitutional dramas get less media coverage than the trial of a fading pop star. Only in America would senators lecture judges on the law while the cameras are rolling and then leave the room mid-hearing (practically mid-sentence) when the lights go down. Only in America would people care about Scott Peterson. Only in America would the tragedy of two families — the Schiavos and the Schindlers — create national chaos in the law. Only in America. "
-Andrew Cohen on 2005.
