No More Training Do You Require. Already Know You, That Which You Need

Another weekend has passed. Ready for another work week.

Saturday night we, saw Y&T in concert, which was awesome. Even Kip Winger (lead singer of Winger, best known for continuously being heckled by MTV's Beavis & Butthead) was pretty good with an acoustic set. Yesterday & Today was formed in 1972, so they were celebrating the 30th anniversary of their Earthshaker album, which they performed in its entirety, along with a bunch of other songs. The extended version of "I Believe In You," with amazing guitar solo work, was amazing and really made the night.

Apart from rocking out, I managed to install my Geforce GTX 560, we watched Fringe and the latest episode of Game of Thrones, and we went to the movie theater to watch "Thor."
