Whatever. I'll bring a book.

Radiohead gets second billing to cori's new chair.

If you've seen my apartment, you know why a new piece of furniture is a noteworthy event.

I'm supposed to write a review of the show for this Seattle music site a friend talked me into joining. I've never done any sort of reviews, but the guy who runs it keeps stressing that it's a total low-key, no pressure thing, I can write as often or as infrequently as I'd like. I sent him some writing just to show that I could write, but was really ambivalent about actually doing anything.

Then I told him "well, you know, I don't go to a lot of shows, but oddly enough I'm going to four in the next two months: Radiohead, Coldplay, Black Keys and Snow Patrol."

Then he asked if I could cover each of those shows. ... yay? Ugh. I'm kind of dreading it.

Oh believe me, I get it! I have never lived alone in a house this big before and my friends are so over me sending them links to furniture/rugs/lamps to get their opinion before I make another purchase for something that might not, you know, actually fit through the door. My TV room is empty except for the damn TV. I sit on a pillow on the floor or a hard chair for Sunday TV night.

I hope you love the show. At least it's in Seattle and not The Other Place.

Ha! Yeah, my couch almost didn't make it into my apartment when I moved in 7 years ago. If I ever move, or if I ever get a new couch, I'm going to have to bust it up to get it back out.

I'll be excited about the show by tonight. I've got so much going on this week, so what normally would be excitement for a show is showing itself as a bit of anxiety. Lame.

Oh god, no. I'd ask something like "So .... do you like .... stuff?" Then I'd vomit all over Thom's lazy eye.

When my friend was telling me about the site, he said I could get into whatever show I wanted as part of this, which sounds pretty damned cool. Too bad I already actually have tickets for these four. Ha.

Cori I'll write for you! I love writing about show experiences I've had. Especially after seeing my first U2 concert with my dad in '09. I had a real experience then. Too bad I'm not seeing any bands this year (well so far I'm not really seeing that happening).

I'd love to get out and see more bands but I don't have a job and if I did have a job I'd spend all my money on other things.

Well, I'm good at writing about experiences of going to concerts. I always have tons to say. But framing it as a "review" is tough.

The good news is, this is apparently a really flexible thing, and I could write 500 words about one song they played and call it a day. I can frame it however I want, and I guess I'll just have to keep reminding myself of that.

When he asked for a sample of my writing, I sat down and had four pages about my trip to see U2 in Moncton in about a half hour. Writing about U2 is easy. Everything else is hard.

It turns out two of my coworkers are going as well! If you're a white upper middle class college graduate in Seattle, turns out this Radiohead concert is the event of the year.

Take a legal pad to jot down notes for your review. Yeah . . . notes for your review, that's it. Not for copying down the setlist. No . . . for your review.
