My big-ass Mexico recap!

The year's almost over, so I guess it's time to start trying to recap all of the things I've been promising to post about. Vermont, the parties, the weddings, and the cruise will come later. First things first, the land of incetardis.

It's funny, on a search for Circus Mexicus, I'm the top result. I'd link you to the wonderful website that Roger Clyne had up to summarize the event, but it's gone down since the event, and the WayBack Machine only has 2003's copy. Ah, well. Anyways, as I posted, a bunch of us went to Mexico one weekend in early November. Why would five rational young adults rush to Mexico for just one night? To see the guy who is probably most known for the King of the Hill music play live! I saw him this past April, and enjoyed his show. Most of his songs are about going down to Mexico and drinking. Don't believe me? Read the lyrics, listen to the music! And even his earlier stuff with the Refreshments seemed to center around that theme. When I first told mrfantasy who I was going to see last spring, he chuckled. ``So what will he do for the rest of the set? Incidental music from the show?'' Much later, while driving through Arizona, I found out that he did that as well.

So, all in all, an amazing weekend. Great driving, amazing food, mind blowing concert, beautiful sights, good times. Didn't run into Jick or Skully, didn't spend extra time in Mexico like I was hoping to, but still a worthwhile trip. Was back to work and class Monday morning.
