He Will Bring Them Death, And They Will Love Him For It

by Rainier on Oct. 8, 2010 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

The weekend is upon us! Yay! More time to do nothing. :)

Apart from us going out on a fancy dinner date tomorrow, we have no special plans, so you know what that means: DVR time! Last night we watched an old episode of Southland, two hours of Hell's Kitchen, and the latest episodes of Sons Of Anarchy, Chuck and Castle. Unfortunately, by the time we were done, three new episodes had recorded, so we'll settle for a small dent this time around. We've also been neglecting Dexter, the last DVD of season 3 has been lying around for a week or two, so we'll probably polish that off as well.

Music-wise, we been listening to Black Rebel Motorcycle Club (Beat The Devil's Tattoo is such a catchy tune) and Five Finger Deathpunch (preparing for the upcoming concert). Kind of disappointed that the "new" Soundgarden is nothing but a  collection of old tracks, and I already had the "rare" ones ....
