Why can't every weekend be a 3 day weekend? Even that one extra day just helps so much. Anyway, I started a new personal journal but I figured I should update this one more anyway. If you'd like to be added to my new personal journal, comment and I'll add you. I don't need drama from 3 years ago following me around anymore. Its long over with and needs to be forgotten, I just wish the person causing the drama would realize that and move on.
Anyway, I went to Lacuna Coil and Rob Zombie tonight. We had tickets in the private lounge, which was pretty nice. I didn't want to deal with the floor crowd. The crowds in Vegas are extremely rowdy and I figured if a bloody fist fight broke out in the middle of A Perfect Circle I wasn't going to risk being on the floor for Rob Zombie. I'm glad I wasn't because Jesse saw a lot of police cars and an ambulance after we left. I could tell something was going on because the security guards were literally sprinting across the place. I never quite got that.. in every concert I've been to there is always at least one person that overdoses on something, gets knocked out or basically goes crazy and has to be kicked out. Do some people just go to concerts to self destruct or what? Lacuna Coil was pretty entertaining and the female lead has an incredible voice. I've always thought so but it was even more impressive to hear her live. I could have done without the male singer grunting along with her. Rob Zombie was very entertaining, it just seemed like the whole thing was cut short. Apparently there was a 10pm curfew and they ended the show before 9:30 I think. It was cool to hear White Zombie stuff live after 10 years..brought back a lot of memories. The first real concert I went to on my own was White Zombie in 1995. Babes in Toyland opened up for them and I remember really enjoying myself. I remember screaming at the top of my lungs to Babes in Toyland and jumping up and down with White Zombie..ah too be young and naive again. I wish I still had that energy. Look at me.. I'm still only in my 20's and I'm already acting 70. I don't know what it is.. I just don't have the same passion I use to for shows. I still enjoy them, but calmly...I don't need to make an ass out of myself anymore I guess. You could tell the difference between the people that were there for the show and the people that were there to be seen. I think I've seen more denim mini skirts to hold me over for the next year.
In other news, I tried like hell to get tickets for Tool today but they sold out within seconds. For some reason, Jesse and I have no luck getting in. I hate ticketmaster with a passion. Plus I suspect that most of the tickets were sold anyway..Vegas is the kind of place you have to know someone to get into small shows like that. It was still really disappointing though. I love Tool live and I've only gotten to see them once. The sad part is the tickets were immediately selling on ebay for 7-800 a piece. They were selling 4 tickets for the upper balcony (which you can't see anything because tables are blocking your view) for $1800! I generally will not pay more than 200 bucks for 2 tickets, I don't care who it is. In any event, people are still buying them like crazy.. .they must really love Tool and/or be completely insane to be spending close to a grand on tickets. That's most of a paycheck for most people I know.
I hope I will start making music soon..I miss it. I just need to get out of this rut I'm in.
