They Might Be Giants

On Saturday night I went to see They Might Be Giants perform live at The Pageant. The show (my 4th) was absolutely awesome. The setlist (available at This Might Be A Wiki) naturally included a large selection of songs (9 in all) from their new album, The Else, but it also included 4 fan favorites from Flood, and 2 each from Apollo 18 and The Spine. Particular highlights included…

  • Opening with “I’m Impressed”
  • “The Shadow Government”
  • “The Cap’m”
  • “Spider”
  • “The Guitar”
  • “Birdhouse In Your Soul”
  • “Particle Man”
  • “Istanbul (Not Constantinople)” with an amazing opening guitar solo
  • “Damn Good Times” as the final song

Even the opening band, Oppenheimer was good. Their music was enjoyable, and they did a really good job warming up the crowd.

Oh, lastly, I wore my <GEEK> shirt from ThinkGeek and got two compliments… albeit from other guys.

I recently went on a shopping spree of sorts, buying some interesting and mostly useful stuff. For example, there’s…

The man purse messenger bag from The Gap.

Bag

Yes, I actually bought something from The Gap. It was a little scary to be so trendy. However, I’m comforted by the fact that I’m still more than a little intimidated by those Hollister Co. stores. Those places freak me out. I feel like if I ever went in, I may never find my way out.

Also balancing out my trendy Gap messenger bag is my new <GEEK> shirt from Think Geek, which you have to be somewhat of a geek to fully understand.

Finally, rounding out my shopping spree is my new wallet, the “All-Ett billfold”:http://www.all-ett.com.

Wallet

What makes this wallet so special is that it is made from durable, rip-stop nylon, so that, even when full, it is thinner than my old wallet empty.
