First off, I think I need to make a sacrifice to the travel gods or something... they seem to not like me this year. My 9:05p departure to Vegas last week? Left at 10:30p. It's like I can't get an on time flight to save my life!

Luckily Vegas is the city that never sleeps, and I had the chattiest cab driver EVER. He was cracking me up giving me the scoop on everything happening in town over the weekend and opinions on my hotel, the bar we were going to, those crazy Ravers from Electric Daisy Carnival, etc ad nauseum. LOL

The Kane gig... )

In other news, I am back in QA for a week, and then back on the phones for my last 3 weeks of the year. *shudder*

Oh, but I picked up 2 Big Bangs to do art for for Star Trek Big Bang this year *bounces* And I think I might be doing some art for another Hawaii 5-0 bang, but I honestly can't remember if I signed up for that or not... hmmm, I should prolly check...

Ok, thats it for me today, off to work...
darling_lisa: (With my suitcase)
2 weeks on the phones are finally over. Sadly I only get a week's reprieve before I have to go back for the October filing deadline. But then I'm done until Mid January. We just won't discuss how well or not I'm coping with the return to the phones...

BUT!!

In about an hour and a half I am heading to the airport to catch a flight to Vegas for the Kane weekend of awesome. Gonna catch the boys show tomorrow night and get a chance to spend some quality time with my girls. Short trip, I am back home Saturday night, but it should be awesome.

And to carry me through the 3 hellish weeks on the phones for the next deadline, I have the thoughts of New Orleans and a visit from [livejournal.com profile] caarirose and Kane show up in Phoenix with Cari and N-squared and whoever else we can drag along with us. *bounces*

I hope everyone has a great weekend *hugs*
darling_lisa: (Hair on fire)
So Lisa, you might ask, why in the hell are you up at 2:17 in the freaking morning?

Good question. Sadly the answer is that I seem to have caught another damn cold. I was feeling tired earlier and laid down for a short nap, only to wake up 6 hours later miserable, wracked with chills and sneezing my head off. I am running a fever and my throat is dry and scratchy. FML.

BUT. The gods are kind and when I did wake up, my iTunes DL of the new Christian Kane CD was waiting for me. (And yes, I'm one of *those* fans, I bought the physical CD off Christian's website so I could get the keychain and necklace as well (but not the VIP package, because really... I live in the desert, when am I going to need a beanie and gloves?) but I wanted the bonus track and I know that the hits on iTunes are going to do more for his standing in the music community.

Anyways. I still think the album is lacking a bit of the rawness that made Kane so special originally, and I know that they wanted/needed to appeal to a wider country audience with this one so that is ok I guess. I am absolutely in love with his cover of Fast Car, just. Yeah. I doubt he will play it live, but man I would love to hear that one in concert. Also if you can get the iTunes version, it is well worth it for the bonus version of Different Kind of Knight. Its accoustic, just Christian and his guitar. Cut for fangirl bit ) It also comes with the extended version of the House Rules video, so if you haven't seen it yet, or wanted a copy of that, there you go. :)
darling_lisa: (Wheee!)
Ok, so today? Not so much win. But the last half hour or so has totally made up for it.

So this won't make sense to anyone but me and her, but I got to read more of [livejournal.com profile] caarirose's Pictures2words story and it is fantastic and wonderful and OMG just wait.

Then? This appears on the Christian Kane's website:
Thats right... KANE show to end the ConCon weekend!

And finally... [livejournal.com profile] caarirose sends me a link to this: Blood Into Wine
Maynard James Keenan is known as the front man for Tool, A Perfect Circle and Puscifer. In the mid-1990’s, on a whim, the reclusive rock star left Los Angeles and moved to an Arizona ghost town (population 300). A wine enthusiast, Keenan began to envision a world class wine region on the Verde Valley’s craggy slopes and with wine mentor Eric Glomski (former David Bruce winemaker and current owner of the award-winning Page Springs Cellars), Keenan began the long road to bringing credibility and notoriety to Caduceus and Arizona Stronghold Vineyards amidst wine industry prejudice and the harsh Arizona terrain. Take a look inside the life of one of rock music’s most mysterious figures.

Apparently the original link didn't work... so here is the link to the trailer.

And here is the (fucking fantastic) poster to go with it:

Earlier in the month, I put up a post offering art for my flist as a holiday present... these are the pieces I created for them.

Massive amounts of art below the cut )

Sadly these are the last pics of the Summer of Kane.

Again, using my little point and shoot Coolpix, but actually got some decent shots.

Large-ish pics below cut, lots of them. Have a teaser:



Boys of summer... )
darling_lisa: (Default)
Yes, I know, I am leaving tomorrow to go to the final Kane show of the summer and I am just now posting my pics. I suck at life sometimes. :)

Anyways, I'm not gonna do a review since it has been covered by others and I'm technically at work and posting on my lunch to begin, so I won't have enough time to write much more than captions. But I figure its a good way to get me (even more) psyched up for the show this weekend and gives people some new pretty to look at to tide them over. ::grin::

Teaser:


Here be pretty, pretty things... )

First batch of icons from the set... there will prolly be more.

Heading off to try and go to sleep. Get up at the asscrack of dawn tomorrow to take the shuttle up to Phx for my flight to Portland. *flails* Spending the weekend with amara_m and canadiangoddess and whichever other fangirls show up and THEN.... KANE AND CARLSON!!!!!!!!
darling_lisa: (Chris singing)
Ummm, yeah. I can't stop playing with the pics. Is it time to go back yet??

Ok, so I already posted my review, and now I finally made it through my pics and did some editing to make them as pretty as I could. Most of these are reddish, some are completely red... I color corrected as best I could, but those damn lights at Dante's just killed me.

Also, be aware that there are somewhere around 40 pics below the cut, most of them around 800x600 or somewhere in that neighborhood. So yeah, IMAGE HEAVY!

ANYHOO

A teaser pic...


Let me go... take me with you baby... )

There are a few more that I didn't post here on my Flickr account. Or you can just skip this entry and view them there.
