Non Sequitur Thursday: Deadmau5

I took this past week off from work, because I felt that a little time off was well overdue.  Additionally, I wanted to piggyback the time off with something else already planned, which was pretty easy to do, because, months ago, I purchased tickets to one of the Deadmau5 shows in Boston.

If you don’t know who Deadmau5 is, perhaps this photo might help you:

So, briefly, I began listening to Deadmau5 a few years ago when his song, Not Exactly, played on one of my Pandora stations.  I’ve always kinda enjoyed electronic music (mainly Nine Inch Nailed), but my husband can be credited for really getting me into it.    When we started dating, I was totally into dancing and just losing myself in good music.  And, without a doubt, Deadmau5 is good and puts on an excellent show.

So, it should go without saying, that the show (which took place last night at House of Blues) was amazing!  I did feel really old seeing 16 year-olds in the crowd — though, let’s be honest, seeing a 21 year-old makes me feel a little old these days — but I mentally prepared myself for that going in and enjoyed myself from beginning (7:00) to end (12:00).  None of the performers disappointed and each act successfully raised the energy until the room seemed ready to explode as Deadmau5 took the stage.

I was even able to buy a ridiculous t-shirt celebrating his cat, Professor Meowingtons PhD:

And, as you should know by now, I get really jazzed about cats.

One of my favorite songs (Strobe), which was also the song that he closed out with last night (this video displays the stage set-up from one of the previous tours):

Non Sequitur Thursday: Canadian Geese


Today’s post that has absolutely nothing to do with anything else in my blog is quite simply to share some love for our beloved Geese friends who hail from Canada.  I don’t know about you, but they absolutely delight me.  I look forward to seeing them every spring.  I look forward to the first sights of their fuzzy little babies waddling around and hearing their wonderful honking calls as they fly, and land, coasting onto water, in formation.

What I delight in the most, however, is the fact that whenever you see a group of Geese hanging around somewhere, there is always one standing perfectly erect, utilizing all of its concentration to protect the others while they feast on some delicious grass.  I deem these brave avian soldiers as the group’s Guardian Goose.  Apparently, I’m not quite as clever as I’d like to think, though, because if you do a Google image search for “Guardian Goose”, you will find many examples of exactly what I’m speaking about.

So, we are now at the time of year where the Geese will be heading out of here to warmer temperatures, and I sadly bid them farewell.  I look forward to their return and to every future instance where I am allowed to clap and smile at other Guardian Geese.
