Welcome to The blog of whall

Come on in and stay a while… laugh a little. Maybe even think. Read more...

Hi, This is Wayne. This is my site, my stuff, my blog, blahblahblah. The site itself is powered by WordPress and the Scary Little theme. I thought it was cool, and I still do.


As you may have heard by now from my Twitter accounts, yesterday’s update, and some comments…. my all-time-favorite-band-of-all-time YES postponed their show in Dallas last night.  

The only good parts about it were A) I was told just before I got on the road yesterday afternoon.  It really would have sucked if I was already in the car driving up there, or had found out once I got to Dallas.  B) We had some severe weather in Austin, so I was able to be home with the family.  Nothing happened, but it was still a potential of tornados and high winds, and it’s just plain better that I was here.

Because of the postponement, if I had a working camera, I would’ve made a 3-minute DITL of me.  Just me.  Crying.  Crying over and over. WAHHHHH.

Good thing Jaden has my back.  He can do the crying for me.

You know what’s really weird?  I mean besides me using my son to gain electronic sympathy from the blogosphere.  I mean, Jaden was born in 2002.  However, the timestamp on this picture shows January 1st, 2001.  He looks to be about 3yrs old in this photo, and I’m wondering how the picture got the wrong time on it.  In fact, there’s a whole folder of photos from 2004 or 2005, and they all have the 2001 timestamp.  Weird.

To switch topics (slightly) I think I’m going to take a look at Chilly Willy‘s suggestion of a new camera (Olympus FE-20).  It looks like a great deal.  Thanks, Marty!  I’ll be back to making DITL’s in no time!

It seems this is the era of cancellations.  We’ve had our annual week-long coast trip to South Padre scheduled and rescheduled THREE TIMES since last summer, and we just got notification that it has to be canceled AGAIN.  Hurricane Dolly’s devastation on the island and some of the resorts is still to blame for some of the places not being ready to open.  Duran Duran’s appearances in San Antonio and Dallas were canceled in December last year (which my wife was looking forward to about as much as me seeing YES).  

Well, I guess the bright side is – whenever they decide to reschedule, I should have a working camera!

And lo, the people did comment thus:

    I was really sorry to hear the news, Wayne. Your excitement was contagious, which made me excited for you (even though I’m not much of a Yes fan). I was really looking forward to the post-concert blog post. Guess that’s been postponed too. 🙁

      Dave2 – yes, the yes-themed DITL has been postponed (or as marty says, “postpwned”. And, I’m sad to report, I got an email saying all the shows until 2/24 are actually now in “CANCELED” status.

  2. Miss Britt says:

    Is it wrong that the picture cracked me up?

    I mean, it was empathy MIXED with cracking me up. But still. Laughing a lot here.

    I love that picture of Jaden. Even cute when crying – that is hard to pull off!!
    I, too, am looking forward to more DITL. Also, that camera looks great… maybe buy that, too. Or I will wait for your review. Dang I’m smart!!

    Sorry to hear of the postponement. Hopefully, they will reschedule and honor your meet & greet pass.

    As for that camera, I thought that was a killer deal, so I wanted to pass it along to someone that needed a killer deal (and needed a camera, too)

      martymankins – I’m gonna try to find that camera while out today. And it appears the concert is flat-out canceled. And there was much sadness. But this means maybe when Jon Anderson gets better, he can tour with them all!

    Hey there, Big Generator, don’t feel too Fragile or Close to the Edge. I’m just a Relayer telling you that it will only be Time and a Word before you’re Going for the One concert that will actually hapen in zip code 90125. Don’t let the Drama Talk you down. Just Open Your Eyes, listen to these Tales from Topographic Oceans and let the Tormato Union lead you up The Ladder to Magnification on your way to the Keys to Ascension.

    Oof, that most definitely would have sucked, getting to Dallas to find out it was rescheduled. Had a great time talking to you last night, man. Thanks for hanging with me for a while.
