|The Replacements London Roundhouse June 2...|
|Paul Westerberg...just going to blame my horrifically blurry concert pics on camera and 20 years of anticipation waiting to see them play!|
I love them for playing Another Girl Another Planet as their encore, it was the first cover I heard them play on a bootleg tape (yes CASSETTE TAPE I AM OLD!) in college, and it got me even more into their sloppy live covers and crazy messy live antics as a band. So while yes, I would have loved to hear Answering Machine or Here Comes A Regular or any other of the ballads that make grown men cry that the crowd were baying for, them playing that song felt like some message from the universe that I was supposed to be there on that particular night, and indeed when they announced it was over (again) a few nights later, it felt even more apt. Life.
I have had some weird stomach bug since we got back from London. I'm pretty much over it now (it was brief but horrific), but still feel thirsty a lot and mostly want to loaf and feel a bit woeful even though it's sunny and lovely out. I will do a better London post soon, promise. In the meantime here is a picture of a dragon:
Apparently the next episode of Game of Thrones is going to make me weep, so looking forward to that, thanks guys who are writing this season like you've never heard of the blimming books! Grrrr....
