Mediacom: Bane of My Existence or Just Annoying?

Mediacom, I'm still shaking my fist at you! We had service for, oh, about a day before it went out again. Supposedly they're going to fix it for good this time, but it won't be until Friday. Hmmm, why wouldn't they have done that in the first place? I think it's to specifically cause frustration in our lives. Yup. That's the most logical answer. Any other possible reasoning behind Mediacom being the bane of my existence is welcome.

So we had a fantastic weekend in Nashville, TN. Saturday, we visited with our friend Dominic, met his girlfriend, and saw his house that he loves working on. Then we saw Guster at the Ryman. It was such an awesome performance and included some sweet country-style cowboy suits. Ray LaMontagne opened up for them. I didn't care one way or the other for him until he started yelling at some guy in the audience for laughing. That dude's got issues, and his music was sort of boring. Maybe I would have found it more interesting if I'd known some of the songs. We missed the Fruit Bats. I would have liked to see them. We caught the last song, and some of the Gusters were playing with them.

Sunday we went to Jordan & Rachel's church and had some lunch at this pub and visited a sweet toy store. Then we hung out for a while until it was time for The Format. I don't remember the first opening band's name, but they were mediocre. Anathallo was pretty fun and did a sweet performance. I think they had a glockenspeil like the one we have! Rainer Maria was alright, but I was ready for The Format while they were playing... and my back was hurting. The Format gave a fabulous performance. I liked their set-up, too! They had a backdrop and some free-standing cut-outs that was like their album art.

We took pictures and pixel-e video at both concerts, but I can't put them up now due to lack of Internet access at home (my fist is still shaking, Mediacom!). Maybe Friday...

Guster also refers to their music as "Jew beard rock."
