Zombies Ahead

Somewhere in Texas is a sign that reads "zombies ahead." It's very real, although the sign has also been tampered with and is actually supposed to indicate road closure. Tampering with a portable road sign is a misdemeanor in Texas, but that didn't stop the person behind this. I don't encourage this sort of thing, but I have to admit I found this rather amusing! Though this is coming from someone who's worst act was helping a friend steal a construction cone.

My Voice is Shot

Saturday night, I played music for a decent size crowd. I thought we did well overall, and it was certainly the kind of crowd I enjoy -- young people. I remember when we started off "Celebration", I could hear several people get excited. The response was much the same for "Jump". Many of the songs we played went over really well with the crowd.

What didn't go over well was my voice. I started losing it on the first set. By the time we got to "Lights", I could barely sing. My voice came and went all night, but I wasn't too thrilled about it. By night's end, I could barely talk without it hurting.

Initially I thought my voice problems were due to me trying to sing over the sound, but today's Wednesday and practice is canceled because I still can't use my voice. On top of that, I have a cold. So I think me losing my voice that night perhaps was a hint of my cold coming on. I'm hating it right now. I cough and hack every so often. My nose is running like crazy, especially at night and in the mornings. I'll be glad when I get better.
