Un Homme Et Une Femme

On Friday I went to Red & Jerry’s. It’s one of those “super fun centers”. Except instead of bowling, putt putt golf, and laser tags, it has off-track gambling, thugs, and terrible service. We went their for Chancs birthday. He rented out one of the poolrooms (billiards, not the hole filled with water) and had about 50 friends and family over. It was pretty fun. I spent most of the evening sitting on a brick wall with a new friend Kara. We pretty much sat there and made fun of everyone in between telling jokes and being as dirty as possible. I got gum on my pants by sitting on the brick wall. This gum later got transferred onto G’s nice leather couch. This caused a little drama but was remedied on Sunday night. After the birthday party I went over to G’s and sat around and talked with a few of her friends. G then talked me into going over to Chanc’s house for his “afterparty”. It was fun but I didn’t feel like staying out till 3:30 in the morning.

On Saturday afternoon me and A.P. went golfing at Inverness. I was a really nice course and both A.P. and I played pretty good. We played $0.50 (when did they take the “cent” sign off of keyboards? What did they replace it with?) skins and it all ended up in a tie. It’s always nice hanging around A.P., especially now that we don’t get to see each other as often.

That night I met a bunch of friends out at the Red Room. I shoved down one of those Red Rooster Cogburns which was delish. This is surprising cause that place has really gone down hill since it’s remodel. The menu has really gone down hill: it’s too expensive and most of the food is crappy. Normally the service there is pretty good, but on this night in particular it was for crap. After a quick meal and drink, we all headed out to the Wilco show at the Fillmore. I didn’t know much about these guys going into the show but it was pretty good. The bad was pretty talented. They have a strange cult-like following that I couldn’t really peg down. I must be spending too much time seeing all this indie crap. Why haven’t the hippies jumped all over Wilco yet? I guess They’re not noodley enough.

On Sunday, G her father and I went to the Denver Ski Expo. This is a great way to get yourself all psyched up for the coming season. I can’t believe I walked out without buying anything.

That evening I watched A Man And A Women, which was a great love story. The surplus of driving scenes and the spatial dialogue combine with the style if cinematography made it seem like a French version of The Graduate without the adultery. And in slow motion.

  1. We drove by the show that night and I cursed myself for not getting tickets. Then we passed by the Ogden and saw all the little jugaloo thugs acting out and thought how cool it would be if ICP’s bus crashed and only Wilco was playing that night, and then all the little jugheads were sad.

  2. aw hubs, i wish i woulda known you were at the show. i’ve had my tix for months. we were waaay up front, i only had like 2 people separating me from the stage.

    and i thought i saw i.c.p. juggies walking around. we walked from the fillmore to 29th and champa. not cool.

  3. it was a last minute choice james. an extra ticket came up while having dinner with folks before hand so i snagged it. i just watch “i’m trying to break your heart” a couple of weeks ago and that helped convince me to go.

  4. Wilco is a pretty decent new band. ‘A Ghost Is Born’ is a good album. Not ‘great’, but good. Try the pork tenderloin at the Red Room. [pricey, but tasty]

    And dont forget the hot barmaid at the Goose.

  5. I would have to disagree and say that old Wilco was a great band. I’m not sure you could call them new. I think mostly calling them new just makes me feel REALLY OLD.
    They lost me around summerteeth. But it doesn’t take away from the still good live show.

  6. you are really old SE. i’m so old i had never really listened to Wilco until about a month ago. so they are all new to me. they seem a little hit and miss.l there are songs that i absoltely love and song that i really don’t care for. i definately like their mellower stuff best.

    thanks for commenting argentum. maybe you should think about adding comments to your site. i’m going to the bluebird next tuesday, i’ll see if i can’t swing into the goose beforehand.
