Muse live @ State Theater 7/26/06

OK, I'll try to be as nice about this as possible... every piece of technology has failed me today. Maybe I should become a farmer and "harvest the land":

a) My cell phone. The headset no longer works... I can't hear anything people are saying. I used the speaker-phone until today... Now, today the speaker-part-of-it died as well... Hope my bluetooth dorky thing still works...

b) My "rock n roll camera". Some great shots of Muse below. However, I hung out with the "common folk" for about 2 hours to get shots with the band... I did, however, the photos got lost. Yeah, that camera (or memory card) is on its last leg...

c) My Comcast internet connection at home has been bloody shite! Anybody else having problems?

d) Blogger Images/Photos. WTF? Not working (as far as I can tell)

e) And yeah, let's not even talk about MySpace.

f) Non technology: A guy next to me in bathroom said this: "Welcome to hell!". Seriously. I said "WTF!?" Felt like some kind of "karma" of the post I put up last week. Gave me goosebumps, very weird...

This is supposed to be a Muse review!? I have to use my neighbor's unsecured wireless network to write this?!

I blame all this on:

a) Global Warming

b) A-Rod

And yeah, Muse was really good. Loud. Extremely loud. Thanks to buddy guest photographer Aaron who took some great shots (he was in row A, pit). I'm (again) so pissed the shots with the band didn't turn out... sorry, especially to my friend Amy.

Flickr photos / slideshow A few of these are NME worthy...

Two good things tonight:

a) My friend Amy (mentioned above) made me a kick-ass Pet Shop Boys Mix CD. It's awesome... more on that to come.

mp3: Pet Shop Boys - Paninaro [Italian Remix]

b) I love my buddy Ryan. Had a great chat with him before the show... my economic future is up-in-the-air (more on that to come next week). He sat in row A, right next to a left-hand speaker unfortunately.. here's the message I got on my phone during the show, to illustrate how loud/crazy the show really was:

"My seat is actually horrible. It's far too loud. Every note make my body vibrate. I'm going to leave before I puke from sheer volume. Sorry."

I didn't see the opening band The Cloud Room... I did run into the boys from White Light Riot, though. Check the pictures...

OK, I'm done... even this internet connection is giving me time-out issues all the time.

You know, I try, I try....

P.S. I gotta let it out: "Faaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhck". OK, I feel better now. Have a great Thursday everybody!

P.P.S. This is the worst "show review" of all time. I agree with you...

Damn that A-Rod. Either he or Sadaam has to be to blame.
Now that you have some free time, you can send me those CD's finally! Seriously, I would like to hear the big Summer Mix, as well as the Grey Album.
Go Twinks!

Well, at least you're running out of technological things that can break.

My internal organs have finally rearranged themselves into their original positions after the cocktail shaking they got from the bloody speaker volume. That was one LOUD place to be. MUSE spits on 11; theirs go to 846.

Ah, yes...what a strange evening indeed. I did ok w/the volume as I had my earplugs in. Today has been nothing short of a disaster.
Bring it on...! ;)
