Some Men In This World Are Born To Do Our Unpleasant Jobs For Us

Yesterday's visit to Medieval Times was a total bust. I did not enjoy it at all. As a kid, I had gone to a similar spectacle in France where the performers were actually wearing full-body armor and doing real jousting and combat for the duration of the event. The Medieval Times people make WWE look like the real deal, and the two-hour show was mostly filled with failed attempts at a story, some horse tricks, about 20 minutes of sword fighting and laughable acting. Well, at least the food was half decent ....

We also watched It Might Get Loud, a movie with guitar heroes Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin), The Edge (U2) and Jack White (White Stripes) talking about their love for the electric guitar and how it all got started for each individual. It was definitely a joy to see Jimmy Page at work, and it was easy to see that the others were awed to be in the presence of such a legend.
