Strange little scavenger indeed

There are a lot of things in this world that get me excited; food, sunny days, rainy days, meeting women, Guinness, poker, white shoes, public speaking and even reading the newspaper. I'm a pretty high strung kinda guy. Still, as in anything, there is always room for improvement, and my energy is no different.

I have a very large capacity for fan-boy-ism, however once again, a whole new world was opened to me by Them Crooked Vultures. From the first moment this band's rumor hit the surface, I have sniffed out and stalked their every move, because I theorized (correctly) that this band would be the most epic thing to happen to rock n roll in the past 20 years.

I love being right.

While I have marked calendars many a time, and consider Tuesday to be one of the most important days of the week (and if you don't know why... for shame), I have never waited in front of a store for an album release. I can proudly say that while I was only there for 2 minutes, I was let in by the HMV employee on Queen this morning, immediately proceeded to grab 2 copies of TCV (Willsy needed one too) and sprint home to cherish the work of 3 rock virtuosos.

In short... I've got my day all planned, what the hell are you waiting for?
