Whoa, Take 'er Easy There, Pilgrim

The season two opener of The Walking Dead was pretty good, and if you have not seen the episode yet, be prepared for your jaw to drop at the very end. Good stuff.

Saturday evening, we went to the Night Ranger/Foreigner/Journey concert, and it was an awesome time. While neither of the bands may be on the cutting edge of today's music, it was great to belt out the classics from a few decades ago. The place was packed with 22,000 rock fans, and most of them brought their kids to show them what the good old days sounded like.

As a sign that I'm getting older, I keep thinking, "Man, they don't make 'em like they used to," and that applies to both music and video games.
