My personal favorite band of all time, Foo Fighters are taking to the roads of North America for yet another tour. In the clip (which is mildly NSFW, as there are four bare asses featured), Queen’s “Body Language” plays as four-fifths of Foo Fighters rub soap on their bodies. It’s, um, funny.

Tour openers include Cage the Elephant, Social Distortion, the Joy Formidable and Mariachi el Bronx on various dates. For full details, visit tour.foofighters.com.

Givers “Meantime” [VIDEO]

I’m loving this band’s debut full-length, In Light, available on Amazon and iTunes. Givers, from Lafayette, Louisiana, are a ridiculously catchy indie pop group that features a mildly unconventional lineup that includes a second percussionist in Tiffany Lamson (also sings), as well as a keyboardist/flautist in Nick Stephan. The band is getting some radio love with their single “Up Up Up” on alternative stations.

The August 30 picture was taken on August 26. Ft. Steilacoom park is right near my place and I took Sadie for a walk around Waughop Lake on a warm, sunny afternoon. Sadie thoroughly enjoyed all the smells, and attempted more than once to get a hold of a duck. Rather unsuccessfully.

The August 29 picture was taken on August 26, when south Tacoma was blanketed in a thick fog. I took my grandmother to a optometrist appointment that morning, and my route took me right passed where the Narrows Bridge(s) are, but they were completely enveloped in the fog and couldn’t be seen. It was pretty crazy. This is a shot of the park near my mother’s house.

On August 28 with my family having a BBQ at my dad’s townhouse in Old Town Tacoma, we took the little kids down to the beach for the sunset. (They all played in the sand, rolled down the grassy knoll, and generally ignored the beautiful sunset.)

I went to the Mariners game on August 27 for Larry Bernandez bobble head night. Larry is the alter ego of Felix Hernandez, and a fan favorite. This pic was taken as I was approaching Safeco Field on the East side of the ballpark.

The August 26 pic is of a piece my mother did. She does all sorts of crafts including stamping and scrapbooking. This is a little birdhouse she made that hangs in the foyer of her house.
