time of my life…sorta (part 2)

Published September 3, 2012 by veryjaneeyre

So, remember how I saw these guys in March?  Well…I saw them again last night. And I forgot one thing about closer seats.

GIRLS WITH SIGNS HAVE NO CONSIDERATION FOR THOSE BEHIND THEM.

Okay, I’m sure that’s not always true, but seriously, the girl 3 rows in front of us should have been beat down when she continued to hold up her “James, I’m your Worldwide girl” sign AFTER the song had been performed. (Irony of ironies: banner for venue’s way of resolving concert ruining issues was seen ON THE WAY OUT.) But to prove my no-consideration theory, the girl behind HER also held up a sign for a good portion of the concert. This video illustrates my point nicely (keep your eyes at the bottom of the video at the 23 second mark; I dealt with this chick for 2/3 of the concert! She was blocking 75% of my view. Grrr.) :

I would have pointed out their egregious error had they been closer to me.

How about some pretty stills instead?

Let’s start with the end. I still have errant confetti in my purse.

During the Beatles breakdown, Kendall asked the crowd: “What’s your favorite Beatles song?” Me: 8 Days a Week. Sister: ??? Me: What? It is. I don’t care that they didn’t cover it.

Logan singing “Help!”

Thankfully Logan is a good actor. He’d been tweeting emo lyrics a couple of times yesterday and I worried a bit that he’d be less than mentally present during the show. Sister blasted Taylor Swift’s “We Are Never, Ever Getting Back Together” from the parking lot before the show for him. Venue’s house music counteracted that though…last song we heard before BTR’s set was Adele’s “Set Fire to the Rain”. Me: Stop it! You’re not helping emo boy!

Carlos is just precious.

Um, Kendall? Why are you hiding your ass? What’s with the butt-flaps?

I seriously think my sister took this just for Manda. 🙂

Kendall…before he turned into a sweat ball.

Logan singing “I Wanna Hold Your Hand”.

I’m not sure why Carlos looks upset. Could it be because Kendall’s attention is elsewhere? 😉

I’m not avoiding James for those who view this and are going “Where’s James?” Sister took MANY pics of that gorgeous man.

James is “Elevate”-ing.

So beautiful.

More perfection.

I mean seriously gorgeous.

Oh…you already know.

My two favorite guys. I tried convincing sister to “defect” to their side during “Windows Down”. Alas, we did not.

I love them.

You can thank sister for video and pics…it’s my job to keep myself upright; she does everything else. Thanks, sister!

Btw, those are MY earrings.

pic post…with a small update

Ok, first off- I’m not dead. (Haven’t we been here before? I recognize that tree.)

This post is about a week late, but I’ve been so consumed by this thing that I needed to concentrate and just bang it out. (Pun definitely intended.) I’m so freaking happy to say that minus any revisions to be pointed out by my beta, this thing is DONE. It almost killed me several times, but I prevailed.

Either way, I took a somewhat deserved break last week and caught a show.

Awesome 8/12 show

Here’s what the arena looked like from our seats:

WTF were we sitting?!

Find section 18...we were last row.

Find section 18…we were last row.

So the opening band was/is MuteMath. I spent a good amount of their set screaming, “Are they done yet??” The highlight of their set (to me) was when they dismantled the drum kit at the end. It was…interesting.

For those looking for some words about Incubus, here they are: we were the last show done by LP before Incubus officially joined tour. No Incubus for us.

Now, this was my first Linkin Park show. My only gripe would be that it wasn’t longer. It was awesome and my sister got to see exactly what her camera is capable of. (That being said, I’ve told her that I expect to see PORES when we see these guys again in two weeks.)

Enjoy the few pics she actually took.

Chester Bennington

My favorite- Chester and Mike Shinoda during “When They Come For Me”.

Pyro! We could feel the heat where we were sitting. I believe this was the end of “Burn It Down”.

Mike during “One Step Closer”.

“One Step Closer” is my favorite song so I was thrilled that it was the closer. (Pun intended again!) I wish “Lies, Greed, Misery” would have been played or even “Roads Untraveled” but all in all, it was a great experience.

About a week and a half ago, I went to Foxwoods to see 4 very attractive guys sing.

James, Kendall, Logan and Carlos during "Elevate".

The word boyband has been used to describe them. Pshhht. Whatever. The term I like to use is fake boyband.

Please don’t get me wrong. I adore these guys, probably more than I should at my demographically inappropriate age, but they were put together for a tv show. Singing was not the number one priority- which is why I gave them a bit of leeway live and was happy to be proven wrong because each of them can sing and sing well. Dancing is a bit of another story, although I’ve been told that it was better than past shows. (I’m looking at you, Logan Henderson and Kendall Schmidt.)

I enjoyed the show enough to have tickets to see them next tour. I wish I had better seats this time, but at least I’ll be at the venue.

In the mean time, I’ll enjoy the pics my sister took last time.

Gorgeous James Maslow

Kendall Schmidt

Logan Henderson

Awesome Carlos Pena
