Short Trip Report

October 2, 2007 at 5:43 pm (Alice in Chains, Music, My Travels)

I went to Nawlins. I met Jerry Cantrell. I ate beignets, catfish, and a big ass burger fried under a hubcap with hashbrowns. I met Mike Inez. I drank a lot. I met Sean Kinney. I went to St. Louis Cemetary # 1 and saw the reputed tomb of Marie LaVeau. I met William DuVall. I hung out with my cousin and Seven. I saw Alice in Chains, live and acoustic, and I met Jerry Cantrell.

Remember my goal from waaaaay back when? The goal I didn’t tell anyone about because it had already been poo-pooed? Well, 75% of that goal was achieved.

I was able to snag a ticket to a show that sold out in a very short period of time.

I was able to get my ass to Nawlins.

And I was able to meet Alice in Chains.

The other 25% is still hanging out there, but that’s okay. I dream big but I wasn’t disappointed in the least.

A more detailed report when I’ve had the opportunity to rest.

    I did take pics, Moon, however, there aren’t any of AiC. No cameras at HOB and I didn’t have time to snap pics and run back to the hotel before the show started. However, I did get other pics.

    I was wondering about that goal of yours. I recall I mentioned baby steps. But you met Jerry Cantrell. And Mike Inez! And Seven! Lucky dog!

    Now get some sleep girl. And keep dreaming big.
