- norma jean checking out.
- losing money at the casino in reno.
- the american economy sucking.
- constant rain for nyc off day, and for most of the east coast.
- the webster theater and other shitty venues.
- more rain and massive headaches at bamboozle.
- not really having enough time to see anyone at bamboozle.
- crashing my car on the way to the airport.

so yeah, i had two days off at home after that tour, and i decided that since i didn't touch my camera once on the whole tour, it was time for a change. the first thing i did when i got home was head down to henry's and trade in my shit. based on the positive reviews and results i've seen from jess, rennick and my own research, requirements (and other r related words), i decided to go with the lumix dmc-lx3.

so far, i love it. i don't there there could possibly be a camera more suited for my needs and personal preference and enjoyment. it's got a great lens that has both a wide angle and aperture, which i love. it seems to do everything that i ever did with my giant, heavy, unpractical SLR, and more!

anyways, i feel i made the most of my limited time off, and took a bunch of photos hanging with my friends courtney, dylan, beth and diaz who were all in town on tour, amongst many great pals from toronto and it's surrounding area.


oh, and i'm in europe now for 3 weeks and plan to take a lot of photos, although, so far i haven't taken too many.
