Saw Dream Theater last night.

Holy crap they were amazing and they played a tiny little theater in Riverside, CA called The Fox Theater. So even if you were in the balcony you were able to be really up close with the band. Thanks to a computer error they sat me next to the band's equipment and after going to the usher about it, I got a nice upgrade to my seats.

This was the set list:

Set 1:

False Awakening Suite (DT history video intro)
The Enemy Inside
The Shattered Fortress
On The Backs Of Angels
The Looking Glass
Trail Of Tears (extended version with instrumental jam)
Enigma Machine (with Mike Mangini Drum Solo)
Along For The Ride
Breaking All Illusions

Set 2:

The Mirror
Lifting Shadows Off A Dream
Space Dye Vest
Illumination Theory


Overture 1928
Strange Deja Vu
The Dance Of Eternity
Finally Free

Give you an idea of how close to the stage I was:

Frazier Glenn Cross (Jewish Community Center Murderer) Was Banned From Stormfront

The suspect in Sunday’s shooting outside two Jewish community centers in Kansas -- the most recent rampage based on the victims’ race, religion, sexual preference or membership in a particular group – had been blacklisted from Stormfront due to old disagreements with the site’s founder. He instead actively proselytized on a rival white power website.

In an interview with NBC News, Stormfront.org’s founder, Stephen Donald “Don” Black, called the SPLC report ludicrous.

“Anybody who comes on Stormfront and even suggests illegal violence ,they get shown the door,” he said. “I’m sure we’re stricter on that than Facebook or Twitter or Craigslist.”

“We have 286,000 registrations,” Black added. “The law of averages you’re going to have some people that lose it.”


What do you have to do to get banned from that website?

Child Gets Stuck Inside Claw Crane Machine

When a woman discovered her 3-year-old son was missing from her apartment...

A missing three-year-old Lincoln boy was discovered in a claw machine at a bowling alley Monday night.

Lincoln Police Department got a call Monday about a missing boy. His mother told police he'd slipped out an unlocked door of their apartment while she was in the bathroom.

After arriving at the scene, police were told a child matching the boy's description was at Madsen's Bowling & Billiards, 4700 Dudley St., across the street from where the boy lives.

An LPD sergeant went to investigate and saw the three-year-old boy had crawled inside the claw machine at the bowling alley. He was uninjured and playing happily with the stuffed animals in the machine, said Katie Flood, public information officer with LPD. Madsen's employees, along with a vending machine company, helped remove the child safely.


Glad he's OK but seriously...

The Cause Of $300K Damage To In Development Community Center? One Squirrel.

FORT WAYNE – An errant squirrel caused about $300,000 worth of damage to the new McMillen Community Center set to open June 7.

Parks Department officials told parks board members Thursday that on April 1, a squirrel got into the electrical system at the freshly renovated complex in McMillen Park, causing a massive power surge that fried the three new HVAC systems and damaged some parts of the boiler system.

The squirrel did not survive.

Parks Director Al Moll said the damage will be covered by insurance, minus the department’s $50,000 deductible.

Dumb Criminals: Teenage Houston Camaro Driver Gives New Meaning To The Phrase "Car Pool"


It's not every day you see a brand new, high performance sports car sitting at the bottom of a swimming pool, but that's exactly what drew a crowd in northwest Harris County.

Investigators say the driver of a 2014 Chevy Camaro ZL1 was driving too fast and lost control on the 12000 block of Innsbruk Court near Bammel North Houston and Champion Forest Drive, went through a fence, and into a community pool.

"Whoa. That's kind of crazy," said neighborhood resident Kelvin Dorsey. "Imagine if I have my child and my baby's mother walking past here and that was to happen and I was to get hit."
