(Death) Rattle & (New Rig) Hum... or 'out with the cold, in with the new'


Oh, what to say... what to say. I was awoken by the heating & air guys at 8:30am. Shortly after they began their work, I hit up my work out. Lots of errands today.
One thing that struck me today was U2's "Rattle & Hum." It came on Palladia in the middle of the day. I haven't seen it in many a moon. It's not the best concert movie, but it does capture the band at their creative height. To me, U2 never got better than that period. They had future hit albums & songs, but that movie shows you EVERYTHING you need to know about the band. Truly beautiful, as pretentious as it may be at times.
I am ecstatic about my new found coolness... literally, not figuratively. Since I returned home on Sunday I noticed that my air conditioning wasn't conditioning the air. It was just blowing 'room temperature' out of the vents. So... I bit the bullet & had some one diagnose the problem. 36 hours & many American dollars later, I am finally cool in such a hot time of the year. The entire system was replaced. I guess it was about time. 12 years is a good run for one of these heating & air units... especially one that runs 9 months out of the year (heating or cooling).
No harm. Glass half full. Heading out tomorrow. Ready to rock the midwest.
