Here's my second Photo Friday entry... and this time with the added benefit of actually being posted on Friday! Speaking of Friday - how cool is it that today is Friday? For me it also happens to be payday. It's these simple pleasures that make life worth living...


And now, the Friday Five (added at 3:38pm):

1. What was the first band you saw in concert? When I was in tenth grade, I went with a school chum to see Bad Religion at the North Hollywood Theater. Unfortunately, the facility was oversold, and so the show was shut down by the fire marshal during the opening band's set. This didn't go over too well with the audience, who essentially tore up the theater, and ended up causing a riot on the streets of North Hollywood - firehoses, police in riot gear and all. And I got to see myself on tv later on that night. The tickets were refunded, thankfully (and amazingly!), and I traded them in for tix to the Circle Jerks.

2. Who is your favorite artist/band now? I'm sort of back into my Radiohead phase right now, what with the internet "release" of some of their new "premixes", cannot wait to hear the new album.

3. What's your favorite song? I don't have a favorite song. Songs tend to stay with me if they trigger a certain mood or memory, and there are far too many of those to name here.

4. If you could play any instrument, what would it be? Well, I do play an instrument, or at least, I used to. I played drums and percussion throughout high school and a bit into college. I was pretty good at it, but sorta got burnt out. However, I have always wanted to know how to play the piano very well, although I lack the discipline it takes to learn.

5. If you could meet any musical icon (past or present), who would it be and why? Easy. Madonna. I have, strangely, been a fan of hers since I was in the 4th grade. I have always wanted to meet her. I don't exactly know why, I just think it's because I have liked her for so long. Oddly enough, yesterday while getting my morning Toffee Nut Latte at the local Starbucks, I was standing behind someone who sorta gave off a Madonna-vibe (whatever that means). She was with a little girl about Lourdes' age, and drove a black beemer. Who knows. I never did get a good look at her... (sigh).
