...on NIN and Gluteal Contusions

Over the weekend, on Saturday night, I had the pleasure of attending the Nine Inch Nails concert at the Palace in Auburn Hills. After hearing a number of glowing reviews I entered the show with expectations of the highest order...and was not let down. Without question, it was the most awe-inspiring technical video performance I have ever seen, and of course the aural presentation was quite enjoyable as well. The band really pulled off a phenomenally impressive array of sychronized radiant palpitations and semi-opaque layers of atmospheric set pieces. A truly impressive spectacle that the following pictures do little justice for.

On an unrelated note, as referenced by the title, and similar to a malady suffered recently by Cowboys star Chris Canty, I have some gluteal contusions. Unlike Canty's, however, mine are from falling on my ass on ice...repeatedly. I've become a bit better at ice skating, so that now I'm to the level that I fall much less frequently, but when I do it hurts significantly more due to the speeds I reach and the position I'm in. My first competitive hockey game is on September 12th...I am fully expecting a complete comedy of errors.
