Old Music: Staind - Dysfunction

Here's a classic disc, I recently have been playing: Staind - Dysfunction. This album is by far the best Staind album they've put out in my opinion. From the very first track, "Suffocate", this 4 piece hits it hard with an in-your-face groove. If some of you remember, this was their breakthrough album, producing radio hits such as "Mudshovel" and "Just Go". I still remember seeing these guys at one of the X-fests probably back in 1999 or so. Since this disc, they've put out some classic hits that will be sure to go down in rock history. If you haven't heard this disc, here's your chance. I'll leave this link up for a week or so.

PS: if you dig the tune "Mudshovel", check out this original version, formerly called "Mudshuvel". This was off their pre-signed demo album titled "Tormented"

Business Trip #2 - San Fransisco, CA

Trip number 2. This one went better that the first. This time it was to Redwood City, California, a southern suburb of San Francisco. A co-worker and I went out for 5 days for work. It was pretty cold for sunny California. Each morning we had to scrape the ince off the rental car and crank the heat in order for us to get to the office. We tried out some brews while we ere there too. We went out to Steelhead Brewery and had a few. we also enjoys a few Pyramid Hefeweizen as well as the Colorado brew, Fat Tire. Over all the trip was better than the firs and even had time to visit San Fransisco's Fisherman's Wharf!

I was a good boy.

I must have been a good boy this year because I got a great gift ender the tree! Thats right baby, an XBox 360!! My lovely wife so kindly took my 'subtle' hints the last 3-4 months and snatched up a great deal Micro Center was having on their XBox 360 packages. I also got some cool games such as Madden 2k6, NHL 2k6, Lego Star Wars and Call of Duty 2. Needless to say I am going to putting some great time into this system for sure!
