California makes me comfortable. Well most of it that is. There is just something special about being familiar with something, even if it’s the Southern California freeway system. Despite all the crazy signs and distressed drivers, you know there will be a big blue sign telling you where all the historic or tourist worthy places are somewhere.
Yes. I went on a vacation this weekend. A few months back i purchased tickets to see Death Cab for Cutie with my friend Andrea, for her birthday actually. Well, when the time finally came we had decided to book a hotel, a never-been-done thing for both of us.
Everything went smoothly. The ride, the parking, the reservation, the money. I can only attribute the perfection of our San Diego vacation to a blessing from the hands of our Lord. We didn’t deserve to have such a great time, but God orchestrated all the events in such a way that it was.
The venue was at SDSU and it was slightly difficult to navigate around the place, but we eventually read the map right. Im going to skip all the frilly things and go straight to the Death Cab. What a talented bunch of manlys. Their hearts are in their work, and it not only shows on their albums but live as well. There were lights and fog machines so everything looks super cool, yay just like they wanted it to. Something i thought was interesting is that they started from bixbie canyon bridge but didnt play through the entire of narrow stairs. They didnt even play their hit single, I Will Possess Your Heart after or soon after. I liked that. They played a well balanced mix of songs from virtually every album. I liked that as well. I like Ben Gibbard as well too. I dig his moves on stage, i think he would be a great dancer. I would definitely dance with him. Oh and Chris Walla broke like 4 or 5 strings at once on one song, im leaning towards transatlanticism but i really cant remember. Instead of strumming(obviously) he used one string and played the melody up and down the frets. Go Walla go! Hmmm, it was also interesting to watch the drumming on Cath.. he plays it exactly how i thought he would.
Well I need to say that this weekend has further proven to me that im a traveler. This weekend has left me thirsty for seeing more sights and doing more things. I hope i am able to quench it soon.
