Just got the Kiss remaster Destroyer – Resurrected last night. It’s producer Bob Ezrin’s doing. I had a good time listening to it straight through with Aaron. If you’ve been listening to Destroyer all your life like I have, you’ll hear differences, but there’s really nothing dramatic except the new guitar work on “Sweet Pain.” There is a nice combination of original liner notes and new material from Ezrin. Not a must-have, but for nine bucks delivered, I have no complaints.
Lea just walked out of here joking me about eventual orthodontic bills. I think that’s about as funny as amoebic dysentery.
Something that really meant a lot to me once was playing an online word game called Acrophobia, on bezerk.com, in 1997-98. It was an exceptionally well-finished experience, even on dial-up (remember X2 vs. K56flex?), and I had “buddies” I’d “see” every night there. Still keep up with a couple, actually.
I decided to finish From a Buick 8. It redeemed itself somewhat, but I still think this is the last Stephen King I’m reading cold for a while.
Ate at The Tavern with ‘seester on Tuesday. It was a tasty club sandwich and cole slaw. Service was excellent. I ate in this room twice when it was Ketchup, and both of those visits have been eclipsed with this one.
I think the kids are getting tablets for Christmas. The shopping’s getting easier, but the bills are getting bigger. I guess that’s growing up in a nutshell, isn’t it?
I had lunch recently with someone who can at this point, I think, be reasonably described as an old friend. I am far sadder for his situation than I let on. Dude, I know you’re reading. Be quiet, and still, and listen to your heart.
