This Is The Most Uncomfortable Coffin I've Ever Been In

by Rainier on Oct. 11, 2011 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

Looking forward to the weekend already, not only because I might actually get to sleep a bit, but mostly because we are finally going to the Journey/Foreigner/Night Ranger concert. We got our tickets way back in March, and back then, the concert seemed so far away, but it's only a few days out now ...

In a few weeks, we're also going to the Judas Priest farewell concert. After many decades, they are finally calling it quits as a band, but I suspect that lead singer Rob Halford will carry on with one of his spinoff bands like Fight or Halford.

Oh, and we just got free tickets to watch Red Tails! It's going to be an awesome weekend!
