the end

Tonight I had drinks on the deck of the Cloud Room with Ellen, Joe, Jon, Aaron, & Justin to experience the Seattle landmark before it closed to be transformed into a vacation condominium timeshare whatever. It was one of those great Seattle evenings1 where you drink outside then go inside to drink more before walking down the street to hear a band.

In particular, The Dismemberment Plan at Graceland. This is their final tour; so we hung out with the all agers [like Franklin, who had to leave early to study for an exam], Ben Gibbard, and Cex (what?!) to dance and try to destroy our eardrums. I dare you to go to a Dismemberment Plan show and not like them. Even though the all request format wasn't the greatest, and my ears are still functional, I just don't think it's possible to have a sub-decent time listening to them.

Also of note:
Jets to Brazil with John Vanderslice at Graceland on June 18: decidedly not optional.

1. Sorry. I just wanted to try that, since Aaron [~ 601am] always writes things like that about NYC.
the only earth?


What I learned today on the news when I should've been studying: Even though we can't find any weapons of mass destruction, we know that Iraq had chemical weapons because we've found that their army was supplied with chemical weapon suits. It's also possible that Saddam Hussein rid the country of the weapons before the war.

Jerry Springer might be running for the Senate. [campaign website ]

Yet, this doesn't seem any more absurd than the explanation about WMD provided by a sitting US Senator (maybe Roberts, R-Kansas).
