ABBA, Perfect Day, Dirty Computer and More

Before we head out to see Avengers: Infinity War and return 4 hours later or however long the movie is, I thought I’d post about some random things because why not.

I am liking my slight redesign and tweaking of the website.  I crafted that new header and a new favicon and found a plugin or two to help me modify my site to a way that is more me – so that includes more red all around.

If you didn’t take note, this past week contained the Perfect Date…per Miss Rhode Island from Miss Congeniality.  Honestly, I have to agree with her as in Los Angeles this week, the weather was gorgeous.  Sunny, windy, a nice warmth during the day but not too hot, while just enough of a chill at night.  Perfect!

I fucking love that movie.  It still trips me out that the first movie was set in San Antonio and released while I too lived in San Antonio.   Then the sequel was set in Las Vegas and released while I too lived in Las Vegas!  Stop stalking me, Sandra Bullock!  🙂

In other crazy-ass news, ABBA tells us yesterday that they’re “reuniting” and going to perform together for a television special in December and TWO NEW SONGS will be released and I can just fall over in joy now.

ABBA Is Officially Reuniting—And Recording New Music!

They’re not exactly going to be touring together though, as while I think they were able to deal with each other and get along well enough to make some new music, that goodwill isn’t enough to deal with each other all the time.  Some Digital Avatar experience will be happening and just tell me how much money is necessary as that is just fine with me.

Janelle Monáe’s new album, Dirty Computer, came out yesterday as well, so apparently music bliss was on the menu.  I’ve had it on repeat throughout the day yesterday and gotta say…I fucking love it.  From the opening track, “Dirty Computer”, which has a Brian Wilson harmony on it, to the already released singles which I love, to the new track “Screwed” which is hilarious and inspiring…the entire album is just a feeling and vibe that makes me happy.  I liked a review I read that indicated this album may be the first time we see the real Janelle Monáe as she doesn’t have the Cindi Mayweather character in this like she did in her two previous (awesome) albums.

In addition to loving the album, I was able to get tickets to see her at the Greek Theater in June.  SO EXCITED.   Nicki and Rekha will be joining in on the fun too.   Took a bit of finagling random codes and such on the ticketmaster site as it’s still in “presale” mode.   My Citi Cardmember presale didn’t really help at all this time like it did with Madonna tickets, as there was nothing available, but the Artist Presale definitely did!   Finally was able to get front of  Section C tickets – we’re going to be in the back section, but the price was right ($60/each), and the Greek isn’t that big of a venue, so all seats will be good!

Okay, probably need to wrap this up for now.   Larry and I are celebrating our second anniversary tonight at a French restaurant I found online in West LA, so hoping it is as good as expected (reviews certainly indicate it will be) and a nice night is had by all.  I’ll check back in with thoughts on the movie (and other movies we’ve seen in the meantime since A Quiet Place) and also keep retrofitting my site’s existing content as the migration wiped out a lot of my recent galleries.  As I find them, I fix them, and I’m back to late 2016 in terms of fixing things.  It’s funny as I do that and see posts I’d long forgotten about.   I love that I have this record.
