The Black Crowes are bad for your health.

Danielle took me to the Hammerstein show last Wednesday, which more than made up for the freezing hail outside.  It was so fun to see them playing again and they sounded great.  It was really neat to see their dynamic on stage, they definitely warmed up as the show went on.  Danielle and I realized it’s been over ten years since we’ve seen a concert together, which is crazy considering for years we spent all our babysitting money on music.

The only thing I would have changed was the incense.  They burned so much that the whole place smelled within the first few minutes.  An hour into the show my mild sniffles turned into a full blown asthma/allergy attack.  I’ve been sick since.

And, in my haste to leave my apartment on Saturday for an Easter weekend with the fam I nearly blew my apartment up.  Scented oil directly on a hot light bulb will cause it to pop…in a BIG way.  It instantly went boom, shattered and sprayed glass all over the place.  The glass shards melted the carpet where it landed.  It was nice to return tonight to the mess I had to leave to catch my train.
