beautiful day here in cleveland america, high in the high 50’s, maybe even hitting 60, nice strong breeze, sunny…just an all around good day to be alive…for once ;)…anyway, i go to the grocery store and one of the items i pick up is a box of milk bones for rommel…the jo gets nothing after what he did..anyway, i left rommel out in the backyard while i was gone because of the niceness. he greets me and i open up the box of milk bones and give him one…he takes it and trots out back digs a hole and tries to bury it…his bone burying skills needs some help, he puts it in an inch hole then nudges grass on top of it. pretty damn funny…so i give him another one and he trots off and does it again, a third bone is given to him and the behavior is repeated….here he is burying one under the back porch…you can see it in his mouth, weirdo.

what have you been doing?…well , i’ve been watching nine inch nails 2013 concerts on youtube. i don’t think genius is strong enough word to describe trent and the band he puts together. i remember i saw them at the phantasy night club with about 100 others when pretty hate machine came out, then the same tour opening for peter murphy, that was the show they got kicked off the tour for damaging peters equipment during their set. then downward spiral came out. that is one of those records that made a dent…like pink floyd the wall, metallica kill em’ all, sex pistols never mind the ballocks…it made a difference. i caught them twice on that tour and made two posters for it. then i haven’t seen the since. they have calmed down, or maybe matured since, and the release “the fragile” was brilliant, the downward spiral kids didn’t get it but that was ok, cause everything since grows by leaps and bounds, the latest release, “hesitation marks” is in my cd player in my car and has been there for months. they have such a wealth of material now their shows are just rich with brilliance. i will not miss their next tour, if there is one.
