It’s Samhain today. And the onset of wintertime. Confusing as always. Spend yesterday painting my frontdoor. Finally a day of sun instead of rain. I’m quite pleased with the result.

The Slayer/Slipknot Unholy Alliance tour was in the country last week. But I’m afraid €50 was just too much, even for Slayer. Luckily most of the reviews confirm they outplayed Slipknot. Can’t believe someone thought this combo was worthy.
I’m looking forward to visiting a concert though. It’s been too long. Luckily I’ve got 2 (two!) coming up next week. First there’s Therion, Trail Of Tears and Tristania on tuesday in Tilburg (try saying that 5 times in a row) and then there’s Rammstein (with -unknown to me- opening act Exilia) on thursday in Rotterdam. Can’t wait!

Just installed the latest Thunderbird, as I found out mine was getting on a bit and I wanted to try out the new RSS feature anyway. Luckily all went well, I didn’t even lose my profile.
