here, i've done something girly. i made an icon. or two. from a stupid show. i have just spent a retarded amount of time on this. mainly finding the image i wanted. i will now forever be cast into the world of lameness. oh wait, i was already lame, duh. i'm getting all excited and nervous about the 80s party saturday. i spent 2 hours seeking music today in lieu of actually going out and buying the stuff i need. oops.

hey, does anyone know how awful it is to see a show at the MCI center? cause, dude, styx, journey, and reo speedwagon. i can't think of a single person on my friends list who'd really be enthusiastic about accompanying me to this concert. come sail away, come sail away, come sail away with me!

stupidly frivolous ebay items i'm bidding on of the week:
gnome 1 and gnome 2.

congratulations to me on the most non-substantive update perhaps i have ever made.

congratulations, indeed! i always find it's the non-substantive posts that get the most response. ;)

good new icon. i've wasted heaven-knows-how-many hours on making all of mine. it can become a kind of compulsion, if you're prone to such. [g]

the problem is that the fetish of the week doesn't have much room, since i really really like my tintin icons and don't want to lose them. heh. so i guess i will just keep two slots for goofy fandom icons. :)

Heh. I have to admit that lineup takes me pleasantly back to being 13 again,when I was hugely into all three bands. And actually, the MCI Center's a great place as far as arenas go. It's easy to get to (Metro's right there, literally) and it's conveniently located for food.
Jun. 27th, 2003 09:13 am (UTC)
ooh, i forgot about the metro aspect. good point. i always stress about going into the city however taking the metro is easy!

I like the line-up for kitsch purposes, but tix are a bit pricey for kitsch!
Jun. 27th, 2003 09:15 am (UTC)
Yeah, I'm honestly torn. It could be fun and totally worth it or it could be a waste of time and ALOT of money.
Jun. 27th, 2003 10:05 am (UTC)
Yeah, the price is steep, and I'm allergic to stadium shows these days. Hell, anything larger than the 930 club seems like a waste of money for the size of the shows.

Maybe that's just my conditioning, though.

So what show is it from?

ahem. jack should officially be jealous of all the time i am spending after work with pacey and joey.

Those are all excellent bands, and if I were allowed in the country, I would definitely go with you.
Jun. 27th, 2003 09:19 am (UTC)
sweet! i mean not that you are not going to be able to go. but that you would is awesome!
Jun. 27th, 2003 08:25 am (UTC)
You are awesome.
Jun. 27th, 2003 09:20 am (UTC)
Aww, garsh. Gnome fetishism does kind of make a person awesome, it's true.
Jun. 27th, 2003 09:55 am (UTC)
1.) I would enthusiastically accompany you to that concert!

2.) Gnomes rule! Did you meet Chopsky, my garden gnome? If not I'll have to introduce you some time!

3.) Go non-substantive updates!
Jun. 27th, 2003 07:52 pm (UTC)
1. Well, that's you me and kelowna so far. I shouldn't spend fitty bucks but if people will go with me, it will be fun!!

2. I did not meet your gnome.

Um, are we forgetting someone? Styx was my first concert, you know. :) I can sing along with most Journey and REO Speedwagon songs, I have the Journey best of on CD, and have replaced most of my STYX vinyl with CD's, but the vinyl is still in my closet. :)

no oe has answered you yet, so i will do so.

the sound inside the mci center sucks. like, sucks worse than the sound at the new black cat. seating, unless it is right on top of the stage, is generally very far from the stage and as the center is more designed for games than shows, often at uncomfortable angles requiring neck-craning and binoculars. smoking is, obviously, frowned upon (although it still happens). but if you like the bands you're seeing enough, you will still have a good show.

I guess I am not cool and old school because I really like the new Black Cat.
Jul. 1st, 2003 10:14 pm (UTC)
well, it doesn't necessarily mean that at all. the sound at the old black cat wasn't all that either, but it was still better than the system that the cage had. my only problems with the black cat now are the sound, the fact that their beers vary depending on which bar you go to, and the fact that the first time we went there after they moved in, the bartender tried to tell us that the plastic cups of beer we were served were "pints." our offer to pour the contents into an actual pint glass and see whether the volumes matched up was not taken up, sadly.

so it's really got nothing to do with being cool or old or anything. i'm probably just picky.
