As it's June 6th, 2006, here's the best way I can think of to celebrate it, if you put stock in such silly things as arbitrary dating systems changed and re-calculated over the centuries, and assuming that it's really 666 and not 616.
How young they look there. Compare and contrast that with this more recent offering from the lads. I still need to pick up the latest tour video. Unfortunately, based on that clip, it looks like they're sticking with the "The more cuts, the better the quality" spastic ADHD monkey school of concert video. The fact that they bragged about the number of cuts taken for the Rio DVD saddens me. Maybe I'm just getting old.
Speaking of oldness and British bands, jenniever and I saw the other Marillion fan in Jersey the other day while walking through the_boke.
Tonight runstaverun and I are going to go see Nada Surf down in Slayerville, hometown of that guy who got kicked out of my high school, the guy everyone associates with Jersey.

kingfox (4:35:10 PM): Do we go down through 9 and see the wonder of the 9 and 35 courting ritual going past the cliff I used to piss off before Pete would headline the club where Bon Jovi got his start (the cliff I fell down once), or do we go down 18 having gone through the 1&18 intersection where that scene in Mall Rats was filmed at the flea market where I got my first trench coat, where there's now that grave featured in Wierd NJ in the middle of a parking lot. Route 9, the route of crazy central jersey adventures through the woods, or Route 1, the route of fun New Brunswick adventures.
kingfox (4:35:14 PM): YOU DECIDE
kingfox (4:36:06 PM): Oh, I forgot the Hole in the Wall off 9. And the drug dealers who sold pot to famous people tour of 18.
kingfox (4:36:14 PM): OMFG so much Central Jersey history it hurts!!
runstaverun (4:36:22 PM): oh jeez, I had forgotten that it was going to be one of those trips... uh... I've no preference, really... what is easiest?
