yesterday, we went into chicago. it was a lovely day...spent some time with the younger brother on belmont and clark (he'd never been there before) before heading to the vic for the they might be giants show. we went into it with pretty high hopes and to be honest... it was kind of a lame show. the opener was really nice, really chill (guggenheim grotto). the photographer and i were both rather disappointed with tmbg, though... they didn't really seem into it and they mumbled a lot of the lyrics and they were lacking in momentum. sigh... you win some, you lose some. better luck next time.
today, we ventured into the greater rockford area and stopped at one of our favorite places.
(the air was crisp and cool, sun shining bright...
it was the perfect october day.)
