Honky Tonk Pa and his boy

We took Sean to his first concert yesterday, and it went great. It was good to see Red Meat again and everyone enjoyed the show.

Later, Erin and Jeff came by with yummy seafood soup to watch the Angels triumph and get a little Sean-time.

Our big trip out!

We had our big trip out to see the pediatrician today. Sean's (or "see-ann" as they called him) is doing great, he gained a pound and grew a little more than an inch thriving on Mamma's milk. Then we took our first stroller trip to the mall, which went great.
Speaking of trips, we're taking Sean to his first concert tomorrow to see Red Meat at Amoeba records in Hollywood at 2pm. Red Meat, as you'll recall, is the great San Francisco based country band that played at our wedding. We're excited to see them again and introduce our boy to fine live honky tonk music! Come join us if you get the chance.
Our big trip out!

Bob Live
I got to check out the Bob Dylan show last night at the newly re-opened Wiltern Theater at Wilshire and Western. It was an awesome show that lifted the spirits and was inspirational in the way only a master artist working at the height of his powers can. Bob's band is so good and rocking, manipulating the groove and consistently able to soar to the highest heights and whip the crowd into a frenzy with the instrumental interplay. Bob, his Oscar perched on top of his amp, re-interprets his old songs (making them impossible to sing along to) and in doing so makes even his oldest material completely contemporary. Dressed in a snazzy long coated black suit with red trim, he played electric piano on almost half the numbers, I guess to keep himself interested and increase the spontaneity of the show.
To my delight he played four songs off "Love and Theft," including an ultra rocking version of "Summer Days" which had the bass player twrilling his stand up bass and tipping his hat mid song. He also played a super rocking cover of the Stone's "Brown Sugar," an intense version of Neil Young's "Old Man," and three Warren Zevon songs. Thanks to the miracle of the internet, you can view the set list here.
After the show we spilled into the streets with the feeling that all was right with the world. What more can you ask for from any human endeavor?

Dear Tony:
Here is the first toy I'm going to buy our kid:
G.I. Joe WWI Doughboy

And here's the second:
Remote Control Stealth Bomber

So I think the Military Forward Command post would be a great addition. Maybe wait a few years though.

The Count of Monte Christo (2002) - Good Good Good - This is an exciting and interesting re-telling of the classic Dumas novel that I've never read. Lots of plot keeps the action moving and the nice production values make it fun to look at. I also appreciated that there was no loud rock music kicking in to take you out of the period like they do in so many movies lately.

Showtime (2002) - Bad Bad - Stay far, far away from this movie. The fact that Eddie Murphy and Robert DeNiro are in it just makes it's awfulness that much more painful. (Not painful enough to induce labor though.)
