They rocked. They played the first three tracks of Synthetica, then started skipping around between that and Fantasies. The set-list:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Artificial Nocturne
Youth Without Youth
Speed the Collapse
Dreams So Real
Empty
Help I'm Alive
Synthetica
Clone
Breathing Underwater
Sick Muse
Dead Disco
Stadium Love

encores:
Black Sheep
Gold Guns Girls
Gimme Sympathy

They especially hammered Synthetica, the stretch from Sick Muse to Stadium Love, and Gold Guns Girls - at the end Gimme Sympathy was played acoustic, the crowd sang along. Emily Haines has great legs, btw.

That said, their performances deviated very little from the disc versions, so there wasn't much in the way of surprise moments. Still, a very, very strong show - great energy, a bit of banter, showmanship, lights, etc.

I don't remember much from my first year philosophy course, except that Hegel is nowhere near as difficult as everyone else made him out to be, and Kierkegaard is batshit crazy. Is this bad?

They finally finished building a new bike room for our company in our building.

Should be super nice--key code entry from the street (only our company has access, no other tenants do) instead of having to take the bike up the freight elevator. The elevator sucked ass since the operator was only there for limited hours...if you were working late, you had to bring your bike down and lock it outside before 6 otherwise you would have to find another way home.

That sounds like a pretty sweet gig. We have rear elevators that I could take my bike in through and there's an HVAC/general storage room just 20 feet from my desk which is a good place to stow the bike while at work.

Leavin' for Vegas. If I miss my connecting flight in Charlotte, or if I lose all my money within hours of arriving, I'll be in Things That Are Pissing You Off.

Yeah, we have a decent room upstairs...but the building won't let bikes go through the lobby. So instead we pay for some guy to sit in the freight elevator at the end of the day (outside of normal freight hours). I don't know if it is a union thing or a "scared of someone sticking their hand outside the elevator and getting it cut off" thing, but we can't operate the freight elevator ourselves.

I am slightly worried that the entryway they cut for the new exterior door will become a prime spot for hobos to sleep and piss...but being able to access it on weekends and outside of freight hours will be awesome. Only downside is that there is no interior entrance so you gotta walk back outside to get to the bike.
