Green Room - Week 16 - Day 9

The curtain drops on some contestants tonight http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1008660.html

Not only will they be eliminated from the competition, but they will be denied the joy of participating in an Idol first! Our own version of Dune's Pain Box.

Are *you* ready to stick your hand in????

***

I went to Spoon last night.

Shonen Knife is coming up this Saturday.

The Shins are next week.

Which sounds like a busy music calendar after a *long* drought. It also sounds like shows that (had they come to the area) I would have gone to see 10-20 years ago. :) (apparently Spoon did a show, as an opening act, 10 years ago. But it was their first time headlining here. Which is just weird...)

Anyway, it was a lot of fun. Go see more live music! Don't have to stop and try to come up with 5 bands you've seen for the next viral meme... have them ready!!!

Crap. I've forgotten the litany against fear. Fear is the little mind killer, and though I walk through the valley of the shadow of too much to do, I shall not want. . ." Close enough? No? Who am I kidding? I hate pain. No bene gesserit here.

Live music is awesome. I can't afford to go to any concerts right now, but my town has live music in the park every Wednesday night during the summer months. I'm excited. :D

Stayed up all night so I wouldn't be rushing at the last minute to read this week's entries. What a fantastic group of offerings for week sixteen.

I should go and have a snooze, or maybe I'll watch Dune, but which version? The mini-series, or the movie? Decisions, decisions, decisions....

Movie simply for the Kyle McLachlan goodness.


Mmmmm, Kyle McLachlan.

Oh, and Patrick Stewart's good too.

So Idol is the Pain Box and the polls are the gom jabbar? The polls only eliminate animals and humans survive?

I can get behind that idea. Then again I am a total Dune nut and will bore you to death for endless hours as I analyze the entire series to death. Sorely tempted to do that right now. Hitting "add comment" and leaving before that happens.

It happens tonight.

There is a box. It will cause pain.

It will definitely help separate the potential humans from the animals.

Starting Memorial Day my husband and I have tickets to five concerts in about three weeks. I am incredibly excited to see John Mellencamp. Despite owning Scarecrow on vinyl (not because I'm hipster cool but because a record player was how we played music when I got it) I have never seen him live.

Still avoiding the poll until it's my turn to put my hand in the box.

Gary. How cool about the Shins and Spoon! Great shows I'm sure. I went to see The Old 97s last night. It was a lot of fun. Next week we see Lucinda Williams and the week following we see David Crosby. So I'm in competition with you for seeing the most live music in one month! Oh yeah I forgot. We're seeing Cake at the end of the month. So there! Hope all are well!

I would love to see Lucinda Williams. I'm pretty jealous about that.

Cake puts on a good show. I saw them at a festival a couple years ago. (they were one of the headliners and I got to see a few acts on the smaller stages, including some guy called Chance the Rapper. Wonder whatever happened to him. :)

Hi everyone!! I just wanted to pop in and say that I have been reading everyone's entries (and they're fantastic as always!) but I haven't had time to post comments.
My grandmother passed and we've been dealing with a lot of family stuff on top of trying to focus at work. I'm sorry for being so silent this round, but I am reading! I hope everyone is doing well and had a great weekend!! ❤️❤️

[wanders in]

What did you think of Spoon? I saw them in Bend three years ago, and honestly, they should have fired their sound guy — we were near the front and could barely hear them, things were obviously Not Working, etc — wasn't a venue issue, since the opener sounded fine, but. Anyway. I'm seeing them this summer, so. :)

I'm also seeing the Shins later this summer. HIGH FIVE SAME TASTE IN MUSIC.

No sound issues this time around. I'd never seen them before, and I definitely would go again. They put on a fun show.

I think it helped that the place was packed on a Monday night.

Of course, I think the fact that they've never headlined Tampa and the last time they were here as an opener was about 10 years ago didn't hurt the crowd size and general excitement of the crowd.

It does make me worry when I see people who have the same taste in music that I do. ;)

I came in for two reasons.

1) I love the band Spoon, but I also love just yelling 'SPOOOOOON.'

2) Will there be a home game pain box? Because Pain Box sounds like my kind of thing. I want to be the Kwisatz Haderach.
