Perfecto!


Roy Halladay
Philadelphia Phillies (2010)
Doc tossed the second perfect game in franchise history, and the 20th perfect game in the history of Major League Baseball with a dominant performance against Florida Marlins tonight.  The Phillies ace threw 115 pitches and struck out 11 batters to improve his record to 7 - 3.

The Stand Bookmark


Twenty years ago, The Complete and Uncut Edition of The Stand was published.  This was the version of The Stand that I first read.  It's by far my favorite novel.

We met this gentleman before an A-Ha concert in New York City.  I donated a few bucks to the cause in exchange for the photo.

Ending on a High Note

A-ha: Ending on a High Note
Nokia Theater, New York City - May 6, 2010
This is the farewell tour for A-ha.  I've long been a fan of the group and of 80's new wave in general, but this show had a special meaning to me.  My girlfriend and I have been together now for almost four years and "Take On Me" has been our song since the beginning.

The show was fantastic.  It was a perfect mix of classics with some tracks from Foot Of The Mountain which was released last year (incredible album, by the way).  The venue was just big enough to feel like a big deal, but just small enough to be intimate.  We had a perfect spot in the dead center of a riser in front of the stage.  Just a perfect night altogether.
