Snakes and Arrows Concert Recap Coming Soon

Sorry, I had to go spend a few days working right after the concert in Tampa, so I haven't gotten around to posting a review yet. Three-word synopsis: Awesome, Expected, Funny.

In the meantime, check out this sweet ad for the new big-ass table computer from Microsoft.

Snakes and Arrows Tour Set List: Part I

Okay, one day before the tour officially begins, and I have found a complete set list that someone listening outside a rehearsal venue managed to post to The Rush Forum:
Posted by Speeding Wheels From the Mike Portnoy forum:




Just got back to my hotel after a VERY amazing day... but the story of the trip here is for a different thread. This thread is simply to inform everybody of tonights final rehearsal setlist.

We were NOT allowed onto the grounds of HiFi Buys Amphitheatre... .but we were told to stand across the street, which we did for a while before we found a location with better sound (and less traffic passing by!)

So... for those that want to know... here is what they played tonight!!!

Digital Man
Entre Nous
The Main Monkey Business
The Larger Bowl
Secret Touch
Between The Wheels
(unidentified song... there was a long silence after Dreamline so we went to find a restoom and refreshments, upon leaving the gas station we could hear SOMETHING, but couldnt make it out before it was over)


Video Intro (unable to see it... but was about 2-3 minutes long)
Far Cry
Workin Them Angels
Armor and Sword
The Way The Wind Blows
Natural Science
Witch Hunt
Drum Solo
Summertime Blues (ugh!)
The Spirit of Radio
Tom Sawyer


One Little Victory
A Passage to Bangkok

Thats all folks!!!

Time to create a playlist in iTunes and burn to an MP3 CD for the ride up to Tampa in the new Jeep!

Jake's JK: Not that I'm going to trade it in. Ever.

It's a good feeling when you get external confirmation of something you had a gut feeling about. I knew Jeep Wranglers have a high resale value, but this is great news:
2007 Top 10 Value Retaining Cars:
The 2007 Jeep Wrangler took the top spot, having retained 73% of its value over a 5 year/65,000 mile period

Fuckn' A.

That means in 2012, if I am sick of the JK (which I truly doubt will happen) I should be able to get $18,250 for it.

Not a bad down payment.
