Reach for the Boston

I hate it when I hit the wall at work. Translation: I hate it when I devour big meat raviolis for lunch and suddenly feel too full. Then I don’t feel like working and would much rather lay down under my desk and fall unconscious … which is never out of the realm of possibility, I assure you.

What’s even worse is knowing I can’t do that, because I have too much work. But you know what’s even worse than that?

That’s right — when the only thing that will bring me out of my semi-coma is Boston.

Sure, it’s a little embarrassing when you’re a music snob and the only band out of hundreds on the iPod that will motivate you to work writes lyrics like “Baby, it’s a party and nobody cares what we’re doin’ there. Baby, it’s a party as long as you’re there. It’s a party, party, party!”

Humans are best when they mature to the point of realizing their own limitations. And the fact is, I still air-jam to Boston. There … I said it. I freakin’ love that goofy ’70s spaceship.

Dear God … someone help me.

    Boston’s first album is perfect; every song was great. The rest of their HUGE collection, not so much. It all began to sound the same.

    And did I hear that they were touring? How can Boston even think about continuing w/out Delp?

  2. Tony Hicks Says:

    Boston is touring with former Striper singer Michael Sweet on vocals. That’s right – the guy who once hit me in the face with a thrown bible at the Stone in 1985 (for the record, I was there to see Tramp open up). Honest …

    I did some time with one of those Stryper sissies. His spandex bumblebee outfit was a big hit in our cell block.

    I assume you heard about the Home Depot employee that is now touring with Boston?
