Today was by far one of the top 3 graphing days of my career. I went into the city with the goal to obtain my Holy Grail, Mr. Christopher Walken and boy did he not disappoint. The only downside was at Letterman where Kevin James asked to use my Sharpie to sign only proceeding to sign for I believe everybody except me. To make it worse he threw my sharpie back to me with it landing cap off in a puddle of water.

I went to Highline Ballroom to see Outasight, Neon Hitch, and Wallpaper perform. O-U did his thing like always and Wallpaper. & Novena brought so much energy. If you have a chance to see any of these artists do so because you will regret it if you miss out of the awesomeness.

I went to Starland Ballroom to see Machine Gun Kelly and Tech N9ne on the Hostile Takeover Tour tonight. After MGK the power to the building was cut due to car accident and the show was called before Tech N9ne even went on stage. Afterwards outside Tech N9ne signed outside his bus for everyone waiting. MGK came to his bus but wouldn't sign saying he was just chilling and hanging out. It was all good though because he just chilled outside the bus with his fans for 5 minutes.

Tech N9ne 1/1

I was originally supposed to attend one game and it turned into one and that became insanely lucky. My main goal for Thursday was to get former IronPig and current Durham Bull, Rich Thompson to sign his IronPigs team card set. Thursday night it was announced that Rays third baseman Evan Longoria would be working out Friday and playing in Saturday's game so today my first stop was the Durham tunnel. Here is how I did over the two days.

Rich Thompson 2/2
Jeremy Horst 1/1
Cody Overbeck 1/1
Sal Rende 1/1
Mike Spidale 1/1
