Evelina Grace turned 3 yesterday! Happy birthday, princess :D She had a lovely party over the weekend and a fun day at home yesterday with mom and her brother and sister. Time is going by too quick!

Rock on the Range!

Myself, The Strak, and The Hostile Dwarf made the torturous journey to Columbus, OH on May 16-18 for Rock on the Range, a celebration of hard rock, heavy metal, pale chicks, and dudes with beards.

Bands I remember seeing:

Slayer - awesome as always. You don't really go to watch Slayer, as they are merely overseers of the chaos below. We were next to a dude in a wheelchair and most of the time was us trying to keep crowd surfers from breaking his neck further.

Guns N' Roses - best GNR show I've seen (4th, I think). Axl seemed to be in a pretty good mood, good voice, and wisely played pretty much a greatest hits package. There were maybe two too many guitar solos, but I was drunk enough to allow it.

Kid Rock was awesome as always. Say what you will, dude puts on a great show and knows how to get a crowd going.

Avenged Sevenfold sucked, but the kids loved them for some reason. They had a cool stage setup though, lots of giant demons and gothic stuff. Sexy. They suck though. I hope this isn't the leader of the New Guard of metal.

Fozzy, Chris Jericho's band, sucks. But it's fun to see Jericho up there pretending they aren't just Tenacious D wannabes.

We saw a ton of other bands - Pretty Reckless, which for some reason Ben didn't want to watch (gay), Jason Bonham Experience, which was as close to Zeppelin as it could get.

The Jason Bonham thing is weird to me. Dude is just playing his dad's parts on songs written by other people. I think it's weird that instead of just living in his dad's shadow, he decided to become his dad.

I think we saw Down and Black Label Society, I'm not sure. I know we saw the only Living Colour song that mattered.

Staind was fucking awful. Aaron Lewis thinks he's Captain White Knight, but he's a douche with boring songs and a boring band. I see many rib cookoffs in his future.

We used the power of Uber to get to and from the stadium, that was pretty cool. We had one driver who I think was 98 years old. He wasn't a big Slayer fan.

There were a lot of fun memorabilia tents, none as fun as the Westboro Baptist tent.

Oh, Batman!

4 months!

Valerie is about 4 months old! That went very fast. Here's what all my kids looked like at 4 months... It'd be neat to do this for their whole lives and have a giant mural or something. Hmm. They definitely like being bald!
