long time no see

I'm sorry for neglecting to update this for all you devoted readers. It's been a whole month since I wrote anything here. I've meant to stop by many times but always got sidetracked or was too busy. There is actually a good bit to update you on. Movies were seen, concerts were heard and I won the lottery. Ok, that last part isn't true, but one can dream.

I was able to go see Halestorm recently when they played at a Best Buy store in Hunt Valley MD. If it weren't for Facebook or Twitter, I never would have known about it. Luckily Hunt Valley is only a little over an hour away and on the way to my parents house. It was another small acoustic performance for the fans to enjoy with a little autograph session at the end. They played a nice 4 song set and sounded great. As always, Lzzy Hale is pitch perfect on a cover of Heart's "All I Wanna Do Is Make Love To You." She gave it her all and it payed off. See for yourself here . The other 3 songs they played were their hits It's Not You, Familiar Taste of Poison, and I Get Off. With all these acoustic shows, they would probably do well if they put out a live acoustic EP also. They're one of those bands who just sound amazing live, even better than the CD. Keep it up guys.

The next night was another unexpected/unplanned (for me) concert in Baltimore. Once again, my friend Dave had extra free tickets to a show where he would be taking pictures. Main bands playing here were Burn Halo, Adema and Tantric. I had no clue Adema was even still around. Like I told Dave at the show, I don't think I had even listened to them since college. The same could be said for Tantric as well. I was never really that big of a fan of Tantric but I enjoyed them. They had some sound issues at the venue though and it was quite difficult sometimes to hear the vocals. Classic moment of the evening would go to the drunk girl that literally pushed Dave out of the way. She turned out to be the daughter of the drummer from Adema. The look on Dave's face as he was shoved by this girl was priceless.

Third concert was last night (3 shows in one week, two were free...not bad). Fireflight, a christian rock band, played in Columbia MD at a place called GenXaret. My friend Joelle and I went to this and opted for the VIP treatment which to be honest with you did not make me feel like a VIP. 6 extra dollars per ticket for early entry and a "meet and greet plus signing" with the band. We basically payed the extra money just to get in the doors early. Yes we were able to get the band to sign things and take pictures, but they did the exact same thing for everyone else directly after their show. The pre-show greeting seemed rushed and Joelle was very unhappy that the guy that took her picture with the band didn't do a very good job. The show was all ages and all ages were there indeed. I've never been to a rock concert where a pack of 5 year olds were running around back and forth jumping all over the place. It was actually quite annoying. Aside from all of this, Fireflight was very good. I enjoyed them and they had great energy and their songs have great meaning to them. Their setlist had a fair mixture of new and old songs. Joelle likes the new cd best, but I am more partial to their previous release "Unbreakable." I like it all though. My absolute favorite of theirs is Forever .

Duty calls and I must get ready for work now, but I promise I will be back. Sooner than later. In the meantime you should do yourselves a favor and check out Fireflight's new album "For Those Who Wait." The title track of that album is great. Also be sure to check out the updated Youtube page to see some videos of all the above mentioned shows. Subscribe and comment and enjoy some awesome music.

God Knows the World Doesn't Need Another Band...

It has been over a week since my last update. In that time I managed to attend 3 concerts, one of which was actually free. I've come to the obvious conclusion that I love going to concerts. If there is a way to make going to concerts a full time job, I need to find out how ASAP. The only ways i can think really is if you worked at one of the venues or if you were in a band yourself.

Well the free concert I went to was another where Dave had his connections to get onto the guest list...even though (this is the 2nd time) he originally wasn't on the list when we arrived. A couple phone calls changed that and he found out he didn't even need a photo pass to take pictures. When we got inside we saw that it was both really small and really empty. "I kinda feel bad for not paying at a show this small" was Dave's thought.  The venue was the Rock & Roll Hotel (not a functioning hotel according to the website) in DC. The major bands that played were Framing Hanley and Transmit Now.  Two other bands, 3 Pill Morning and Legend of the Fall, were also there. The crowd as a whole was pretty young. Dave felt quite old. HAHA, actually I had stated that I felt old but he kind of glared and said "YOU feel old?" He's not THAT much older than I am. But, yes Dave, you're right. It was fun though. Pretty good music all around from each band. I especially liked the moment when Transmit Now said they just made up the next song and it was a Lady Gaga song.

Bring on the weekend. Saturday, July 31, was the Honda Civic Tour at Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia MD. Bands that were here included Kadawatha (we caught the tail end of their set), New Found Glory, Tegan and Sara, and Paramore. The experience went from good to great to amazing as the night went on. This was the first time seeing New Found Glory and I'm sure it won't be the last. They sounded good and had a lot of energy on stage, unfortunately I don't think the majority of people were there to see them so the crowd wasn't as lively as it could've been. But they were still great and I bought a tee-shirt.

Standing in the line for the shirts did make me miss the opening song from Tegan and Sara, but I could still hear it while walking back to my seat. They played a great set and I enjoyed watching them for the first time. I listen to them a lot at home and they for the most part played all songs I like. There was probably just one i don't like too much (Alligator). I couldn't really tell what Jen and Dave were thinking about them. I didn't really think they were their type of music to begin with but Jen claims she doesn't necessarily have a type.  I hope they didn't DISlike them, but I would understand if they didn't like them. Does that make sense? I know what I mean. Do you?

Paramore just straight up rocked. Haley has incredible energy and hardly ever sits still. Well, that is except for two instances. One she just stopped everything and stood still for about a minute. That would be the time where EVERYONE in the place took their cameras and snapped away. It's the time when I was able to get the clearest pictures of her. Jump ahead just for a second to the next day. There was someone at the Lights concert who had actually been at the Paramore concert as well and he showed me a picture he took that looked almost identical to one of mine. Of course it was from that moment when she stood perfectly still. Now, jump back to the Paramore show. After a good bit of "regular" songs, they toned things down a bit. Haley did a cover of a Loretta Lynn song "You Ain't Woman Enough" that will be featured on an upcoming tribute album for Lynn. It was directly after this song they decided to pull out a big red couch (one like the cover of the All We Know Is Falling album, but more reminded me of SNICK from back in the day) and did 3 songs acoustically. This was a nice touch to the show. A few songs after this, the band was gearing up to play their hit Crushcrushcrush, and Haley was not too pleased that people were sitting down. These people included two that were sitting directly in front of me. I was enjoying the break from catching the tops of their heads in my videos, but I understand Haley, and I agree. When the couple in front of me did sit down, I believe that Jen and I kind of looked at each other very puzzled, pretty much thinking the same thing that Haley was thinking.

And then...came the finale. Two songs: Brick by Boring Brick and Misery Business. I have to say that this might have been one of the best encore finishes at a concert I have seen. Usually the bands just come out and maybe play one or two more songs, say goodnight and are done. Brick by Boring Brick seemed normal enough but towards the end of Misery Business things got crazy. Haley decided to find a new singer to help her with the rest of the song so she brought a girl and her friend up on stage out of the front row. The one girl helped her sing, while her friend did the worm. Yes, she did the worm. We have video to prove all this went down. And the entire show ended with confetti falling from the sky making the finish a huge spectacle. Kudos to you Haley for interacting with your fans and putting on a fantastic show.

My pictures and videos aren't ready for me to talk about Lights yet so maybe tomorrow or the next day, but it won't take a week I promise. As always if you want to see any of the videos I have, you can head on over to my YOUTUBE page. Subscribe and know when new ones are added. Also, if you tweet, be sure and follow Haley. Her twitter is @yelyahwilliams . You can also follow @teganandsara as well as @newfoundglory. Next time any of these bands come around, I'm sure to be getting tickets, so let me know if you want in as well! Until next time...

Today was a sunday

Today, I caught Inception for a second viewing. I'm still going to decline on talking about it but I came up with a different conclusion than I originally had the first time I saw it. It was just as good if not better the second time around. In August, a few of my friends and I are trying to take a trip to see it in an IMAX theater. A real one at that, not one of the fake ones they have in some of the multiplexes. I don't see how they can get away with calling themselves an IMAX. I just cannot get enough of this movie.

In other news, In This Moment recently came out with a new album "A Star-Crossed Wasteland".  I admit I did not ever listen to their first album, I only started listening to them when "The Dream" was released and they did their awesome cover of Blondie's "Call Me". The reception of "The Dream" was mixed. Apparently the first album has a lot more screaming and is much heavier and fans from before didn't like the new melodic softer songs. Maria Brink can scream! She can also sing though and shows this on the album. The newest album has a bit for everyone and it works. For me not really knowing the extent of how much she can scream, it was a little weird to hear at first but I got used to it. At the end of the album, there was a bonus 17 minute interview with Brink and the band. They explain just what they meant to do with the latest album, how they think they've found the sound that can really define them, and how they hope it can please both types of fans they may have acquired with their previous efforts. I guess I'll have to check out their first album.

2 Tracks to listen to off the new album are           Just Drive and The Promise.

<----Can't believe all that screaming comes from her

This coming weekend I get to see New Found Glory, Tegan and Sara, Paramore and Lights! Can't say I'm not excited about all of these bands. After that, I don't have anymore concerts lined up for a while. If you know of any that are coming around, let me know! 

Make sure you check out In This Moment and you can follow on twitter: @MariaBrink and @OfficialITM

So, I am not going to make this into a full review of the film Inception for two reasons. The main reason being that I feel I cannot give a proper review on just one viewing, but also because I feel the less you know/expect going into the film the better. The only thing I had heard about the movie before seeing it for myself was that it was awesome and would be mind-blowing. Well, I would have to agree. Christopher Nolan has made some pretty damn impressive films prior to this one. I have loved every movie he has made so far and this is no exception. This would probably rate within the top 3 of his films and probably of any films at all. I caught myself thinking about this movie well after having seen it (over a day after). I rarely have a desire to immediately go out and see the film in the theater again, but as soon as the credits started to roll, I felt like staying for the next show. The film is mind-boggling, visually stunning and has some of the best actors of the moment. Most people will immediately think of Leonardo DiCaprio as the biggest star, but I really enjoyed the rest of the cast in a big way. Both Ellen Page and Joseph Gordon-Levitt have been around for a while now, but are really starting to make big names for themselves. Have you seen (500) Days of Summer? Whip-It or Juno?

It's really hard to decide which Nolan film is the best because they are all incredible. Most people might not know about Following, his first film. It's short (only an 70 mins), in B&W and told not in chronological order. Although, the dvd does contain a special feature where you can watch the events all take place in the proper order. Either way, the film is brilliant. Memento equally as impressive, along with Insomnia, The Prestige and both Batman movies. You can actually see Following if you have a Netflix account. It's available to "Watch Instantly." That is quite a handy-dandy feature.

So, if you saw Inception, I want to know what you thought. Have you seen any other Christopher Nolan films? And who really killed Laura Palmer? Just kidding, I know the answer to that one. Do you?

As I suspected, the concert for 311 and The Offspring was both incredible and painful. The thought of having pit tickets to a show like this was just scary. I figured that we'd end up somewhere in the middle or towards the back, having to look over people who are a foot taller than me and watch for mosh pits. Well, I got the location completely wrong. We managed to somehow get a spot front and center against the metal rail. The only thing obstructing our view was the stack of amps/monitors directly in front of us. But, the stage was elevated so it wasn't a huge issue. The metal rail did turn out to be an issue...if only it had been padded. Everyone enjoys a concert in a different way I suppose. I think they should section off the crazed, shirtless drunk guys from the rest of the crowd. Give them a designated spot where they can be assholes and start unnecessary fights with people. One guy standing behind another in the front actually told him he needs to be more into the band and jump up and down or get the F out of the front. Quote of the concert has to go to the guy that was getting too close with Dave: "It's ok, I'm a homo." I'm sure that made Dave feel much better about the random gross dude rubbing up against him. Dave had to stand behind Jen the whole time to try and prevent her from being pushed too hard. We still all got pushed. I also managed to have about 5 crowd surfers fall directly on my head. Is this type of experience worth all the money?

Well, the bands themselves were great. I had never heard of Pepper before the show, but they were a great opening band. This of course was the calmest part of the show, probably because not a whole lot of people knew who they were and it was early. I enjoyed them though.

The Offspring came on and played an awesome set, including a new song (and according to the set list that Jen was able to get after they played, it was written down as "new song"). The new song really didn't do much for me. Dave recorded it with his phone so maybe he will post it on youtube. They played all of their hits that you would expect to hear, even the one i truly dislike which both Dave AND Jen reminded me of it being my "favorite song." I actually had forgotten the song had existed until they started playing it. Damn them all.

Correction from my previous post, this was indeed the 4th time seeing 311 live. They are always full of energy and know how to get the crowd going. They usually have a good mix of songs in their setlist considering the amount they have to choose from. I was lucky to get a few decent pictures and videos during their set, but at one point I just had to give up completely. The video below shows how I had to stop filming. There was so much going on it was sometimes hard to actually pay attention to them perform. Anytime the bouncers would point to the crowd it was a warning that there was an incoming crowd surfer. At one point I couldn't pay attention to P-Nut's bass solo because of having to worry about getting kicked in the head. I nearly missed Nick Hexum reaching out his hand right in front of me for the exact same reason.

I would do it all over again, just with hopes of coming away with less bruises and less of a sore neck. And maybe I wouldn't have to stand next to the guy who just jumps up and down, hits me in the face with his long sweaty hair, and flails his arms around nowhere near close to the beat. If anything, it served for more entertainment. We definitely got our moneys worth.

Next concert will be Paramore/Tegan and Sara/New Found Glory, but we will have seats. If we had pit tickets for that and were up front, I doubt it would have been anything like 311/Offspring. I don't think many people mosh and crowd surf at Paramore concerts. I could be wrong though

Remember to visit my youtube page for more videos from this concert and for future concert videos as well. There is a slight upgrade in quality now that I have the iPhone 4 to use. The audio is not nearly as distorted.

A Mixed Bag

There are 3 concerts in the near future that you can look forward to be hearing about within the next month. The first one will be this Friday, July 16. I will be attending the 311/Offspring concert at the Jiffy Lube Center (formerly Nissan Pavilion) in Bristow, VA with good friends Dave and Jen. This will be the second time seeing Offspring in concert, and I think third for 311. I should have seen 311 one other time before (even had tickets) but plans fell through and couldn't make it to the show. I'm looking forward to 311 more than Offspring personally, but my friend Jen is definitely going solely for the Offspring. Either way, the show should be awesome with both of these bands co-headlining. Both always show incredible energy on stage.

The next show planned is on July 31st in Columbia, once again with Dave and Jen. This one I have a feeling is going to be one of my favorites. The show will feature New Found Glory, Tegan and Sara AND Paramore. I can't tell you how excited I am to see all three of these bands. I have yet to see NFG and T&S, but I was able to catch Paramore last year at the Ulalume festival where they performed with some other bands for an MTV Halloween type special. I enjoyed seeing them there but felt it could have been a better show if it were a true headlining show and not something where they might not have complete control over what or how much they play. So, needless to say, I am extremely looking forward to this one.

The very next day will be one of six small acoustic shows that Lights is performing. This one I'll be attending with my friend Joelle. I'll admit right away that Lights is not the typical type of music I'd first choose to listen to, but her voice is just about as beautiful as she is. I have seen her twice already (both times with Joelle...She's kind of obsessed with her i think) and she has been incredible both times. Joelle almost missed out on even getting a ticket, but with a little legwork on my part, we found a way, or I guess I found a way.

I'll be sure to update you on these shows and hopefully will have some pictures and videos to share. The only one I'm not too sure about will be the 311/Offspring concert since we have Pit tickets and not seats. I'm looking forward to most likely having an obstructed view and trying not to get kicked in the head by the crowd surfers. The other two shows should be no problem.

Be sure to check out everyone's websites, twitters, facebook, etc. Whatever your social network of choice may be, you'll be able to find them, I'm sure.

First Non-Music Related Post

It has been announced that Avatar will be back in the theaters at the end of August, in the form of an extended edition. This version will be exclusive to 3D and IMAX 3D shows and will contain around 8 minutes of never before seen footage. Among my friends, i heard a lot of mixed reactions to the film. I thought it was amazing myself, with the exception of parts seeming to drag on from time to time. I can't imagine what an even longer cut will feel like. Perhaps I was just tired when I went to see it the first time. Actually, that was before I was taking my energy boosting multi-vitamins every day. The plus side to this is that it will only be shown in 3D which in my opinion was the only way to see this movie. I don't think I would've liked the movie by itself without the 3D effects as much.

Speaking of 3D, have you heard of the ridiculous films that are going to be using this technology in the future? The one I find to be completely unnecessary would have to be the upcoming Harold and Kumar sequel. I just don't feel that 3D can save this. I enjoyed the first movie. It was funny enough. Escape from Guantanamo Bay on the other hand was atrocious. I just don't see the benefits of paying an extra $3.50 to see a comedy that most likely will not be very funny. Also, instead of searching for little White Castle burgers, this time around they're searching for a replacement Christmas Tree on Christmas Eve? Like the previous two films, I'm sure the appearance of Neil Patrick Harris will be what everyone really looks forward to. Yes, he will be returning.

More Halestorm Goodness

@TheJoeStorm has been nice enough to share 2 videos on twitter so far showing how to play the new single "Familiar Taste of Poison" on guitar. The first part contains how to play the verse:

The second video picks up after the verse and into the chorus:

Part 3 has not yet been made, but Joe says he will cover the bridge in that part which will basically wrap up all parts of the song. Thanks for the lesson Joe!

Lzzy Hale = Awesome

The first time I heard Halestorm was on the Sirius/XM station "Octane." They were in studio talking to Kayla and I liked what I heard. The next day I bought the CD at target and loved every minute of it. If you haven't listened to it at all, you're missing out on incredible music. This band rocks hard and Lzzy has a great rock voice. It doesn't hurt that she's incredibly gorgeous also. The best thing about this band though is they actually care about their fans and are good to them. I was fortunate enough to see them perform an acoustic set at a small show on Record Store Day. After their set they stuck around and met and talked to each fan that was there. Recently Lzzy has started a "FreakyFanFriday" on Twitter where every Friday she picks 5 of her followers and "follows" them for a week. I was lucky enough to be picked this time around so for one week she sees all my posts and I have the ability to DM (direct message) with her. I think it's more than decent that she does this. She wants to get to know her fans better and allows us to get to know her better as well. I hope Lzzy Hale and her band is around for a LONG time because we need more musicians like this, who care about the regulars like me and you. They don't see themselves as being better than us. They appreciate us just as much as we appreciate them and that's a pretty good feeling. Thank you Halestorm!

If you have a twitter account, make sure you follow @LZZYHALE, @HalestormRocks, @ArejayHale, @TheJoeStorm, and @Jodowa. You could be part of the next "FreakyFanFriday" and be able to get to know Lzzy Hale a little better.

Hole in DC...Another Take

"If you live through this with me I swear that I would die for you...and if you die through this with me I don't know...????" Wait Courtney, i don't remember that being a part of the song.

Place: 9:30 Club, Washington DC.
Time: June 27, 2010 - 6:30 PM - 1:15 AM (this would be time of arrival until end of the concert)
Event: Hole with Foxy Shazam
Cost: $45 for regular tickets...VIP, slightly more

Picked up my ticket at will-call and yes, I sprung for the VIP on this show. I REALLY wanted a spot in the front. 6:30, they start letting people with VIP tickets into the club. We are directed to the lower level which seems to serve as a waiting area with a full bar and plenty of tables and chairs. 6:45 PM, they tell us all that we are now able to go upstairs and may look at the merch table or go to the stage. Most wanted to claim their spots up front right away. Everyone who got in early was able to get a spot in the front row. Doors were supposed to be at 7:00, but the first people didn't start to trickle in until around 10 or 15 after.

The crowd began to grow and people began to wonder who Foxy Shazam was and if they were any good. I had seen them before at another show so I was able to assure the couple next to me and behind me that they were in for a treat. The energy that comes out of each member of FS is simply incredible. I was positioned right in front of the keyboardist. He is probably the most fun to watch out of them all so I had a great spot. Look at that beard! This is a band I probably wouldn't sit down and listen to, but I would go see them live in concert anytime the opportunity would present itself. Talk about fun and hilarious!

Foxy Shazam played from about 8:30 to 9:05. While most around me enjoyed them, one guy decided to keep shouting "You Suck." The band managed to work that comment into their performance and made the crowd laugh some more with the ridiculous anecdote about the "last guy who shouted out You Suck".

According to the 9:30 club, Hole was scheduled to take the stage at 9:15, but with Foxy Shazam finishing only 10 minutes prior to that, it didn't seem likely. One Hole fan behind me said he had seen the show the previous night in VA and said they waited an hour and a half between bands. We were all hoping that this wouldn't be the case here in DC.  The stage was being set, equipment was being tested, setlists were being taped to the floor. 9:40 looked like a promising time for things to get started. Then, stagehands came back up, ripped off the setlists and put down new ones. 10:15, still no sign of Courtney Love. WTF man? The crowd starts booing and chanting for her to come out on stage. Around 10:25, the show got started.  Courtney came out and immediately said that she was sorry and she knew she was late. I'm sure most of you have already read reviews about the entire show, whether it be the one from the Washington Post or the one by Perez Hilton which was based upon said review by the Post. The truth is, the quality of this show is going to be dependent upon whether or not you're a fan of Hole, Courtney herself and what you were expecting. Those hoping to receive the TRUE Courtney Love experience, raw and uncut, got their moneys worth. A casual concert-goer with the intentions of rocking out to a well-rehearsed set probably left early or felt ripped off.

While it is true that many people left before the end of the show, you have to also consider that the last train home for the metro leaves around 11:45 on Sunday evenings. I would've been in the same boat if I hadn't decided to drive down at the last moment. I would've been really upset if I would've had to leave early and miss all the craziness. Unlike the Post, I AM a fan of Hole, Courtney and the new album. When Courtney came out at 10:30 a few of us were convinced this would mean the show would be cut short. Halfway through the show, she stated that "we have the day off tomorrow, so we can stay up here and play all night if you want." The quote "I can't tell if this show is really terrible" as stated by the Post is not completely accurate. In fact, that's only a portion of what she actually said. Courtney did admit that the show was "weird" but followed the statement by "I can't tell if it's really terrible or epic." And as stated before, the answer to that would have to depend on what one actually wanted out of this concert. I have been to a handful of concerts in the past few years and the worst ones for me are when the band simply plays the song, moves on, plays some more, and then finishes with very little interaction with the fans. Reviews are implying that Courtney played more to the iphone and Lisa than she did to the fans. She played plenty to the fans. How many concerts have you been to where the artist actually plays what fans are shouting out. Most of the time I think they already know what song they are going to play and wait for someone to shout out the right title. It was obvious this wasn't the case here. She admitted she didn't remember fully all of the songs and how they went. In her defense, Live Through This came out back in 1994 and she does not have any supporting members of the band from that time. On the other hand, I do admit, if you're going to keep the name of the band, the least the new members could do is learn the old songs, otherwise, is this truly "Hole."

The Post also mentioned about the girl who came up on stage with a poster to have it signed. This fan in question was standing about 3 people to my right for most of the show until she was picked to go up on stage with about 25 other people throughout the night (mostly thanks to lending Courtney her bra during the "encore"). She did have a poster in her hand and attempted to give it to Courtney, but she wasn't asking her to sign it, all she wanted the entire night was to get it into Courtney's hands. It was a picture of when she met her back in 1998 saying she was her biggest fan. She originally just wanted it thrown on stage at some point, but the staff at the club said that nothing could be thrown on stage at any time. It was her shot, and she took it. Courtney did tell her to go sit down rather than take it, but what do you expect? She was simply saying that this wasn't the time for a meet and greet, show's not over.I think she was happy enough just being up on stage with her and the fact she was wearing her bra.

It's true that Courtney made the comment about the one fan being African American and wanting to know if she actually was a fan, but no one else remembers her making the Lil Wayne comment, including myself. I don't think she was trying to be mean. In fact the Post did fail to mention that Courtney did let her out of everyone else up on stage sing side by side with her. Although, when Courtney sat down to let guitarist Micko Larkin have a solo moment, the fan mistook that as an opportunity to take vocals alone. Courtney pulled her down before that happened.

I'll admit at first I wasn't sure how I felt about the show, but after thinking of the unique experience I just had and being able to be right there in front of Courtney (she even looked right at me and stuck out her tongue at me, but in a playful way) for over 2 1/2 hours, what more could you ask for? While many probably just don't care for Courtney anyway, I have always liked her. This show was more like an episode of VH-1 Storytellers. All in all, I was lucky to witness this now highly talked about show, and it's not a show I will soon be forgetting.

Hello world, I want to meet you. I'm mainly doing this to pass some free time but to also get some of my thoughts out of my head. For the most part this will be a place where I will comment on concerts I've attended, share my thoughts on the latest movies I watch on Blu Ray or in the theater, and keep you (and me) up to date with the latest entertainment news. I will try to update as often as possible. I may need a reminder from time to time. So, here goes nothing!
