Love: All things considered, life is good. Hate: Last full of week of summer vacation is coming up. Gotta enjoy it and still get myself mentally prepared for another 9 months. Hopefully my next group of students is as good as the group I had last year. American politics. Fuck Trump and all his lackeys. During the Cold War I'm sure there were people who were convicted of treason for less than Trump has done. The fact that there isn't more of a vocal resistance makes me think that either Trump is being set up to be a fall guy, or that the rest of those crooks(Congress) are just as guilty as Trump and they know they will go down with him. Lack of metal shows in town. I don't know what happened but there is no one promoting/hosting metal shows in Las Vegas anymore. I'd like to see Godflesh at Psycho Las Vegas, but the $100 price tag for a 1 day ticket seems steep.
