You Laugh At An Old Man, It's Them That Laughs And Knows Better

Back from the concert, and while my hearing isn't quite shot, it's definitely diminished. We ended up being a bit late due to traffic, but Thin Lizzy's "The Boys Are Back In Town" made it all worthwhile. Black Label Society was a bit of a jumbled mess, but Judas Priest was awesome. Two hours of highlights from the past 40 years. Jolly good show!

No specific plans for this weekend yet, no movies that are on our must-see list, so we'll probably catch up on some DVR and maybe play some Fallen Earth and Battlefield 3.

This week's Twitter giveaway is Bejeweled 3, so if you want a chance to get a redeem code, keep an eye on the WP Twitter feed.
