Last night was the Hot 995 show and since i am such the “team player” as they seem to say in the “real world”, i volunteered to shoot the event. In retrospect i think i decided to volunteer my “services” due to the fact that i’ve never shot a “pop” show before. And it definately was “eye-opening.” quote un-quote. I’ve never been around thousands of screaming girls with the average age being 13. It was rather horrifying. In fact i am still amazed at the insanity of the female species. What estrogen will do to the mind of a human is beyond me. Why arent terrorists using estrogen instead of anthrax. Now that would be the way to go if i was to ever become a terrorist. So my favorites were definately (in no particular order) Naughty by Nature, Vanessa Carlton (and yeah, i am almost proud to say i heard of her before you did. ok, i lied. i really dont care.), and Michelle Branch. Craig David was actually pretty interesting. Good lyrics and it was mad bold he took to the stage sans guitar or mic stand. He only had an acoustic guitarist backing him. Michelle and Vanessa were both rocking and had fabulous backing bands. It’s funny, cos they were just backing bands but every guitarist in their bands had like 40 guitar pedals. Likes it’s gonna matter if the delay pedal is on.
And now it’s almost 1am. I am just sitting around waiting for Emily to get back from her girlie party for one of her friend’s wedding. I did get some good stuff done. I got some new mixes of some MONS songs done. Cleaned my room (have i even been home this week?!), went to dinner with Lisa and finished Harry Potter (i was actually surprised how much i liked it), and hung out with the pops. Tomorrow Emily and myself are getting up in the morning to move her from her temporary apartment to her new place in Takoma Park. Fun. Luckily this time there will be 3 ex-military gov’t workers there. Plus three other friends helping out. So, I’ll just supervise like Chris Cornell in Singles. Arms crossed and all. Badass Mother Fucker. I love that scene. Quite possibly my most favorite scene. That and when they are fucking and there is that shot of the fridge and you hear Jane’s Addiction’s “three days.” Oh Cameron and his soundtracks.
Then Sunday is car shopping. Passat here I come. I think i am gonna make this a Father/Son thing. It will be more fun for the both of us. Plus the man sure knows about buying cars. And Emily wants to go to Ikea to get stuff for her new apartment, so after test driving it’s off to the yellow and blue legoland. If i can still stand.
