Recently built over in Buffalo for a winter festival, this maze consists of 2,200 blocks of ice which weigh about 300 pounds each. The maze itself m easured in at 12,855 square feet beating the previous record-owner by a whopping 4,575 square feet. Wow.

Daily Grind: Awesome

Name: Vin (aka daily grind slacker)
How Vin feels today: Awesome @ 10:46:00 AM
What Vin really wants today: Revel in recently completed projects but to continue bug testing before reveling any further. Also, to apologize for lack of daily grind entries this week, will try harder next week.

Music Stuck in Head: Weekapaug Groove / Phish
In light of the recently announced Halloween festy.

Stuff to do today:

  • Convince other half that driving from New York to Cali for a three day Phish festival is a healthy family experience
  • Plus kids under 5 get in free!
  • Find other family friendly experiences that won't cause unnecessary marital problems
  • Ask non-Phish friend about about actually going to said festival for laughs
  • Alpha: Any other bands besides Phish playing at it?
  • Me: ...no
  • Alpha: All three days are just Phish?
  • Me: ...yes
  • Alpha's illustrated response: link
  • Settle on PAX EAST next year instead
