    I mean, I haven't seen anything about it on CNN or Reddit, but apparently hell has indeed frozen over.

    I got some hands on time with the LG G6 and it's display isn't blue. THAT. IS. ASTONISHING. It also felt, looked, and worked better than my Note 5. Color me impressed.

    (BTW, almost all of LG's phones after the G2 had super poor color accuracy. IDK what the accuracy level on the G6 is, but I know one thing... the color temperature isn't 8329k. That's just spectacular.)

    Fairly certain I'm going to see the Meat Puppets at a bar in San Diego tonight. For those who do not know they got their chops doing the hardcore punk circuit opening up for Black Flag and the like. They were never that hardcore, and they became and created part of what is known as cow punk. At their peak, they opened up for Nirvana - and Nirvana covered their song Plateau. While their more popular type or mainstream sound is good and well received, I prefer their earlier work and have the first three of their albums. Should be good.

    Hermosa Beach, Venice Beach, Orange County etc. punk bands went to a lot of surf and skate punk. Anything away from the beach, especially bands that would play through SoCal, Arizona, NM, and Texas , some country sounds morphed into their music. There is also now a scene called psychobilly that's morphed out of cowpunk.

    Hung out and leaned on the bar throughout the Meat Puppet concert. Small bar and right next to the stage. Opening band was called Stonefield from Australia, a four girl stoner rock band which was a nice bonus since I was primed for that. :D Talked to their keyboardist for a minute after they played, but she had a strong Australian accent which made it difficult to understand.
