Happy 10th Birthday FlyingPurpleHippos.com!

Over the weekend I baked some strawberry cupcakes in honor of my site's 10th birthday; my plan was to have a cute little photoshoot with them yesterday so I could post a cute little birthday cupcake photo today. Things went awry almost right away, so, instead of a "cute birthday cupcake" photo, you have this. It somehow seems appropriate.

P.S. Is it weird that I am more excited about this birthday then I am my own birthday?

Audiences performance September 21

Chicago, have you heard of Audiences? Timmy and I discovered Audiences at a Reddit meetup. Audiences is playing at the Hard Rock Cafe on Friday, September 21.

The show starts at 10:00 pm, with Audiences performing at midnight. Admission is $10. For more info, you can view the Facebook page for the event.

One of the things Timmy and I are most excited about is the release of Audience's album on these awesome, handmade (IE one of a kind) USB drives. We will have to get to the show a little late since Timmy has to work, so, I am hoping we will still be able to buy one by the time we get there. (EDIT: They are currently unsure if the USB drives will be completed before this gig.)

You can find Audiences on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.

Here is a video from their YouTube Channel so you can get a taste of their music if you aren't already familiar with them...
