Sittin' round, singing songs 'til the night turns into day

Good evening, interwebs!

I've got a free night.

That being said, I've already tried reading and playing music (two of my favorite pastimes). The books that I'm mining through just didn't seem to hit the spot. First off, I'm halfway through two separate books. This is simply something that I have always tried to avoid. It seems as though I get mentally fatigued within a few pages of either book and I just end up faceplanting after only a few brief moments. That's certainly one way to spend an evening; however, I'd like something that is a little more fulfilling (and that won't leave ink splotches on my forehead).

The next step was to move to the basement, twist my amp to 11, and knock out some high-decibel ear candy. This went well, but I ran out of steam after about 30 minutes. I have since drifted to my computer where I am now listening to random music via YouTube.

And it's quickly becoming the best night. Everrr.

The only lowlight came while I took a wee break from all this writing to grab a burger from a local bar (re: Dundee Dell). There, I was subjected to watching the NBA playoffs while my order was being artfully prepared.

Basketball is awful.

But the music, food, and drinks are not. I'm not getting much writing accomplished, but I am air drumming/falsetto singing like a madman. It feels great.

I'd like to open up a discussion on philosophy, romance, world events...but nothing's really forthcoming.

If you feel so inclined, toss me some new musical suggestions. I can't get enough!

I hope you are all doing well and that you've found your own ways to spend this great, great evening.
