Tori for Gen Y…

We just took a trip down to Bogart’s for my father in-law’s B-day to see Regina Specktor – and boy did she remind me of a little songbird from the eighties named Tori. Obviously the singer is influenced by Miss Amos, but nevertheless, she maintains a singular and unique persona and style that appeals to my senses more than Amos in some fashion…it was a great show…i have to say she is one of my favorite artist (mind yo, i didn’t say product) to come out of 2007…here are some videos:

At the very least, the show was electric…

mind you the camera work is a bit shotty but nonetheless…

Killers rain or shine…

Well, the Killers finally came to town in a long awaited event that basically blew our minds. Only problem is that it rained pretty hard throughout the evening. This seriously impeded our picture taking and/or video recording but the audience was pumped and they gave such a charged performance that it was almost a sin to take the time to shoot any footage of the show because you had to peel your eyes away from the performance for seconds at a time.

Brandon flowers might be my idol now…or at least my ideal model for mens shopping…what  is up with three piece suits???

It was the end of the summer and the show to see. Awesome. We even ran into our wedding band front-man. We asked him if he was mad at us…old habits die hard i guess…sorry shucking bubba…

here are some videos – sorry about the quality…it was raining you know.

and another…the encore i think…

wedding things and anniversaries

mr. parks and i are closing in on our three year anniversary!  i may have mentioned this before, but it’s weird how you just start over counting the years together once you get married.  there should be some other way of describing our time together, like if you’ve been married for four years and were together for three before that, you say you’ve been together for four dash three or something.  sorry, stupid thought…

anyway, the wedding planning is going ok (i think) – our wedding coordinator will tell us for sure on wednesday.  i’ve been so proyd of us for setting a date that i felt like we could take a couple of weeks off.  apparently you’re never “off.”  there is always a ton of stuff to do.  i’ve started writing in the bride’s diary that mr. parks’ family gave me.  it’s going to be so fun to look back on it one day!  just like our blog – it’s incredible to scroll through the posts and pictures, and to see all that we have done together since the time that we started it – about a year and a half ago.  this is better than any scrapbook (especially considering that we would never make a scrapbook, as much as we’d like to).

ok – i’m going to go.  i’m at work and just wanted to write a quick little update.  speaking of work, i love it and i love working with my dad!  my first time on a private jet wasn’t so bad, either!! 

oh yeah – we’re going to chicago this weekend to see the band travis!!!  it’s going to be amazing – we’ll do our review when we get back!!
