The Dismemberment Plan...Reunites!!!

For 2 nights only! All personal revelations aside, this was the greatest night of my life. Dplan was in full force and everyone in the audience enjoyed the set. If they didn't, they were probably deaf.

They played almost every song I wanted to hear. It seems like everyone has the same favorite parts in songs. For example, EVERYONE sang along with the funky line "Joe got caught aboard a Boe with 7 tons of opium." During the fan fav, The Ice of Boston (really all of their songs are though), the stage was so crowded that Travis had to remove his guitar and Eric had to stop playing. My favorite D Plan member (and my sometimes record producer), Mr. Jason Caddell, was only half viewable throughout the whole show but I did see him crack a few smiles. To finally see Joe play Girl O'Clock was beyond amazing. I am kinda serious when I say I can die now. Last night also made me sad that I turned down about 4 opportunities to see D Plan in college.

D Plan played about a 2 hour set and played 2 encores. My all time favorite D Plan song and one of my all time favorites, The Other Side, was played during the 1st encore, I think. I've included a crappy video of it. I asked Jason if they would play at my wedding and he laughed in my face. Sorry folks, I tried.

Pash is in the Mary Kate and Ashley Battle of the Bands. To me this is way rad. If you could vote for us, I'd love you forever.

The End of a Small Part of an Era

Peanut had to leave us. It is okay, though. He was not doing well these past few years.
Peanut, I am sorry I let go of you when you were jumping when you were a puppy and you broke your leg and then that mean vet set your leg wrong and it never healed right. I still feel bad about that.

Would you boff me? 'Cause I'd boff me.

The marketing people at NBC are genius. They took 30 Rock's version of a familar game and made it virtual. Now everyone can decide if they want to marry, boff, or kill famous people. The trick is, each category has 5 slots so you better choose wisely (I know there are sixes boxes but its only 5 - dumb).

I "died" my second time when I decided to kill the Pope. I had 1 boff left but was saving it for Borat who I saw would follow the Pope. Plus, I am an honest person and if I don't want to boff someone, I won't say I want to just to go to Level 2.

Shown above are my real results. I would have played more but decided to get back to work.

Decisions, Decisions, Decisions!

On a show I watched tonight, the contestants had to give themselves "glamourous" nicknames. For the past 3 hours, I have been thinking of my nickname. Mer is too obvious and not fabulous at all. Mermer is twee. Dith is not bad but too close to death and who wants to be reminded of death? I then thought of Trillian from The Hitchhicker's Guide to the Galaxy. Since my middle name is Patrica, I thought Trillian would be perfect. It's weird and attention grabbing andcute enough for Zooey Deschanel. Trillian it is! But then I realized, I am not on a reality show created by someone nicked named Ty-Ty Baby and that I should probably just watch Lost and go to bed. So that's what I am going to do.

Partying for the Homeless

Erik and Jane threw a fundraiser for the Thurman Brisben Homless Shelter in Fredericksburg, VA. I had a good time. I got the see my friend, the famous DJ Frequency, in action along with The Gay Blades and Boy/Girl. I also bought a rad picture of a dude with a beard. All in all, a few thousand dollars were raised for the shelter. Who says partying is futile??? (oh yeah, me)
