Then, AKMA called me to see if I would be willing to do some work for the Disseminary, his pet project. I agreed, and so after I finish at the library, I'll begin at the Disseminary. Hooray for work!
Last night, Jeff and I met up downtown in Grant Park to go hear two awesome bands who were giving free concerts for the Taste of Chicago: CCR (minus John Fogerty) and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Man, did that rock!! As you can guess, there were people there of all ages, rocking out. Many were giving active demonstrations on their belief that marajuana should be legal while others were content to simply be drinking beer shirtless, showing off a host of tattoos. The music was great, the bands were having a lot of fun, and I got to hear some of my favorite songs live (though, they did not do "Simple Man", may fav) that I never thought I would get to hear. When the first four notes of "Sweet Home Alabama" sounded, the cheers went up all 'round as Johnny Van Zant declared "the South will rise again!" I looked at Jeff and said, "Sorry Detroit." He responded, "We'll kick your ass!" I humbly said back, "I believe you already did." "Freebird" was the encore, of course and it totally rocked. The whole event was awesome! It's stuff like this that makes Chicago a pretty cool place to be.
