For those who aren't aware, Boston kicks ass. There is a ton of stuff to do every night of the week, and there are always amazing concerts. Here are some shows that I will be attending in the near future.
9/13/07 - Calyx & TeeBee
This show is going to be absolutely face melting. Calyx and TeeBee are the best Drum 'n Bass producers on the planet, and they just released an amazing album recently. So looking forward to this.
9/29/07 - Soulive
Funkyassgrooves. 'nuff said.
10/04/07 - Steve Vai
No only is Vai one of the greatest guitar players in existence, but he also has the most hilarious mannerisms and facial expressions ever (see about 1:10 into this video for an example).
10/27/07 - Big D & the Kids Table
I grew up idolizing these guys. My band in high school ended up playing a handful of shows with them, and eventually recorded an album in their basement. It'll be good to see these guys in action again.

With my college career at RIT coming to an end, I had to say goodbye to Rochester NY last week. My last day in Rochester consisted of open face for lunch, and a tasty Mark's Sloppy Plate for dinner -- with an abundance of ruckus in between.
So last week I moved into a sweet apartment in Watertown, MA. The place is right on Arlington street, and is in a pretty amazing neighborhood. I'm 1 block from a basketball court, 2 blocks from a 24/7 711 (my girlfriend and I have already made multiple 4am slurpee & nacho runs), and a 10 minute bus ride to harvard square.
One of my favorite parts about Watertown is that it is really not chainy at all. Every corner has a ton of mom&pop shops, and I haven't seen a single McDonalds yet. But by far the best part about living here -- RUSSOS!!1.
One of the kids who lived in my last apartment left me with a pretty badass server rack, which I gladly accepted. I still need to order some more shelving and such, but it's great to finally have a central place for all of my puters.

So, long story short, last week I:
- "Graduated" from RIT with a BS in Computer Science and a minor in Philosophy
- Moved into a house in downtown ROC
- Deployed bodhi, the new Fedora Update System that is used to push out updates for Fedora 7. More details on that when I come up for air.
- Start summer classes.. my last quarter @ RIT. Taking AI and ancient philosophy, along with a couple of online classes.
- Slay bitches with Python.
- Rock the fuck out.
