Brett and I went to the Killers concert last night. It was packed. They held it in the Paramount Theatre in Seattle, same place where I saw Mamma Mia last year. The opening act was a band called Immigrant. I can’t really say how their music was, seeing as how the sound quality was so terrible. Though a little melody seeped through on their last song, Wrecking Ball; what little I was able to decipher sounded fairly nice.

Fortunately, the sound quality for the headliner was terrific. I can’t believe how loud it was! My hearing was significantly worse for a few hours following the performance. I wasn’t really prepared for that; prior to last night, the only concerts I’d attended were those of Riders in the Sky, Weird Al Yankovic, and Pink Martini. Anyway, lots of fun. They did all the songs I like — Somebody Told Me, Mr. Brightside, When You Were Young. The special effects were great too — it’s amazing how different the same stage can look with right combinations of lighting and smoke machines.

There’s another Magic tournament tonight. Same as last time — a Time Spiral booster draft. Hopefully I’ll do better this time.

Here are some pictures I took last Friday: The first is from our D&D game, the second is from the MTG tourney.

    I can’t wait till our draft. I think our first Time Spiral draft of the school year is going to be on the next meeting of DGR-X (our gaming club, my comic), and it will be awesome. I’m lucky, because my math teacher holds the drafts, and orders huge bulk orders of the new sets when they come out. I really like the fact that they brought slivers back.

    Oh yeah, I’m pretty psyched about slivers and thallids. Let me know how you do in the draft.
