more to come later (today or this week), but i have just been so excited about this topic that i can't reserve it for a more organized post. so what's the buzz all about? m and i were discussing the upcoming new album for tool, m's favorite band of all time (followed closely by a perfect circle, a.k.a. APC), which arrives next tuesday. like i said, m loves tool and i like them a lot. i have very fond memories of driving home from high school, listening to the college radio station, and screaming along to sober. we saw tool in 2002, which was an incredible show. we also saw APC twice - once in 2003, once in 2004. we were hoping for another tour with the new album. unfortunately we found out about the ticket sales too late, assuming we could have gotten some anyway since they sold out in minutes.

the show we wanted to go to is on may 17 in philadelphia. as many of you know, 5/17 is our anniversary and this year we celebrate 3 years of being husband and wife. so what better way to celebrate than to see one of our favorite bands in what could possibly be their last tour (they're getting older, and their albums always have a large interval between their releases). since ticketmaster was sold out, we checked stubhub and ebay. our eyes popped at the prices on some of the tickets. but we accepted the fact that we were going to have to spend some money to attend the concert, because non-attendance was completely unacceptable to us. we ended up buying 2 front row tickets, because if you're going to spend a lot of money on a show you might as well sit somewhere really freakin' good. i think we both still have a good amount of sticker shock, but it's going to be so worth it to spend our anniversary in the front row watching one of the greatest bands in the world. there will definitely be a big post after this event!
