Thrice played at The Rex in Pittsburgh on October 21 with La Dispute, O’Brother, and Moving Mountains. Really hot, really loud, and really great set list.
Dustin’s also been doing acoustic sets after the show to benefit Invisible Children, and I was able to get some photos and video from that.
Last week, I got to go hang out with the outreach crew, and learn to use the GigaPan set up. You’ve probably seen something on this project before – generally people are most familiar with the inauguration photo. I’ve babbled on this blog about my interests in combining art and science before, so you can see where this project is right up my alley.
We didn’t have much time to play with the gear, and this was the most interesting thing I could find within the confines of the building. I give you an extremely detailed photo of somebody’s bicycle.
I love haunted houses. And for as long as we’ve known each other, Lori and I have spent every October hitting up as many as possible. We’re kicking off this season by heading up to ScareHouse which, despite some apparent drama over their Yelp ratings, is one of my favorites. We generally rate how good a scare house is by how many times I fall down (I startle like a baby rabbit, and my apparent defense mechanism is to hit the deck). Last year, I fell down three times, which is a solid rating.
A few years back, I made a mixtape for our outings. I didn’t have quite enough Halloween tunes to fill it out, but Lori’s a pretty big Weezer fan. Hence, I give you my Halloweezer mix.
