Apparently it never fails as security won't touch the tampons.
lol

i've heard it works to put your camera in a bag below tampons. i like having a really tiny purse at concerts though, just room for wallet/keys/phone/ipod/camera.

yeah i just have a point and shoot, sometimes they don't check at all and mostly they don't care. and security's always inconsistent. obviously if you're GA you wnat to get through ASAP but for seats, you can always go try a different entrance.

all the time at red sox games they will either not even check my bag or care that i'm carying in a drink in a cup from a restaurant, OR get super anal about a previously opened water bottle - but then i just go to a different gate.

Hey, did you ever post the set from your gig?




Yes, I KNOW how stereotypical this question is from me.
lol

i didn't. i honestly didn't recognize every song they played - i mean, i recognized them, but can't name them, i have trouble witht hat if songs don't have names. i know they played birth and death of the day and your hand in mine, i can ask my bf about it (woulda been better after it happened) and someday get you my phone audio.

Sorry, I grew up watching Star Wars and Indiana Jones, so he's kind of my childhood "superhero" idol. Stuff Luke Skywalker, Han Solo was where it was at!
Hey, I'm an 80s kid too I love Han Solo and Indy Jones...

but the older Mr Ford gets, the crappier his movies seem to become I really haven't seen anything with him in it for years.

Funniest post ever on my friend's LiveJournal today:

So. I come home from work and check my gmail account. There's two emails with numbers in the subject and I open them, thinking they're spam or something.

They're not.

They are emails from Verizon Wireless informing me that I've been sent pictures from someone from their cell phone. I scroll down. The pictures are attached.

They are of a blondish looking guy, standing in front of a mirror in a bathroom (I think), holding his cell phone up to take a picture of his naked body. The other is of him, sitting/laying down and apparently trying to get a better shot of his, um, goods.

I crack up laughing. Because...yeah.

And I looked up the number, apparently it's from some guy in Ann Arbor. And one of the pictures shows his face. I don't know him, so I'm assuming they were sent to me on accident

Yeah, for me it's Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Air Force One, Blade Runner and sometimes the Tom Clancy film, whichever it was (Patriot Games I think?). Most of his other stuff is sadly a bit meh.

I wasn't able to record the set at the show I saw, but afterwards I looked it up on last.fm and somebody posted the set there, so that's how I got it. Too many songs blurred together seamlessly for me to have a hope in hell of keeping the set.

We got Your Hand In Mine, it was fucking awesome. First Breath After Coma opened; best concert opener I've ever heard.

yeah, they do blur really well

we got first breath. but not as the opener i don't think.

it was really fantastic, and a great thing to do with my bf, but while i wanted to follow your lead and go front row, he wanted to get there after the opener.

(we still got there in time for the guy...he was painfully awful)

i wish we'd been closer, i could barely see them even on my toes as i'm super short and we were a bit back. at one point my 6'1 boyfriend had to tell me not to bother to stand on my toes; they were all sitting on the stage
