It's Dancey Dance Time!

My plan for today's post was to go on and ON about how I escaped the Van this Saturday night and went and got my concert on! But I don't know. Do you care? I might care a little if you went to one. But not enough to hear you brag about it. Because I really like myself a bit more than I like you.

That came out wrong (ish)...my point here is that I totally want to brag, but because I like you (a bit), I'll only brag a little!

Right. So this was pretty much me Saturday night. But I guess without the nice hair and backup band. Well, actually, I DID have a backup band. It's these guys called Wilco? Ever heard of 'em? If you said "no" then 1. don't be silly! You can't talk to a computer and 2. slap yourself on the wrist and go buy some of their music.

Of course, you should also be familiar with the artist I affectionately call The Oberst Boy. Because, people, really? He's like 18. And he rocks my world with that lamby little voice of his. Plus he clearly is a fashionista (is 'fashionister' the male form?):


This is my favorite Wilco man, and the reasons should be pretty obvious here.


Isn't it cool how I captured his thoughts in that one? He really emotes with his music.

But I also love this dude now. His name is Nels Cline, and holy FUCK he can play the guitar:



Though, I would like to ask him about his objectionable sock monkey.

I guess the highlight of the evening, however, was when these two lovebirds showed up. About half-way through Wilco's set, they squirmed their way from the back and planted themselves right in front of me, Lana, and my friend Lisa. Then they stared at each other lovingly and started necking. And the term "necking" is most appropriate here because it calls attention to the boy's NECK HAIR.



Listen up, kids. No one likes these people. DON'T BE A NECKING NECK HAIR BOY at your next concert, k? Or if you plan on it, make sure I'm not there, because I will hunt you down, take your picture and make fun of you on the Internet.

Oh, and here's a picture of me from the show that's proof that I'm pretty much blessed and I guess this means I'm an angel or something and am totally getting into heaven:


I'm pretty sure they made me smile funny like that because they're totally jealous.

And look! As I said, Lana was there, too. I know it's not related so much to me bragging about Wilco, but I just wanted to prove that I don't always smile like I'm holding back vomit while God is trying to send me a sign:

I do, however, always have bad hair. Also, when next to Lana, everyone pretty much looks like a bobble-head.

You win some and you lose some, eh?

  3. Neck beards are fucking lame.

    And, you should totally brag about sitting next to Lana like that. I totally would, were it me.

  4. ED: That's the cool thing about Wilco...lots of the "younger folk" haven't heard of 'em! Well, some of them.

    Some Guy: I saw them a few years ago for the first time without knowing any of their songs and I still had a blast.

    TIM: Um, Lana's cool and all, but I'm more into Wilco. Also, you're creepy.

  5. I advocate the use of sock monkeys in bands, 100%

    The Beatles would still be together today if they'd had a sock monkey.

    Well, you know, and if those two hadn't died n stuff.

    Anyway, glad you had fun.

    If I ever become king of the universe like I'm planning, you shall be on my staff and draw pictures for me to laugh at everyday. Snacks will be included.

  10. How am I creepy because I'd be all like rubbing peoples faces in the fact that I was sitting next to Lana and they weren't?

    *pouts*

  11. GI: I do too; it's not like I'm a communist! It's just that...you know...I'd never seen...a uh..."dark" one? Is that racist?

    Lana: He was! Like every other lyric was LANA I LOVE YOU FOREVER DESPITE THE AGE DIFFERENCE. It was getting old, quite frankly.

    Jerrod: Other way around. Don't embarrass yourself.

    NotBenny: This whole post was really just so I could include that. In fact, it's the only reason I went to the concert.

    Sally-Sal: Right?! I think they give you a +1, right? I'll get you in. I know the guy at the gate.

    TIM: Because you'd be sitting next to her boobs. And then be all like, OH LANA! I didn't know you were here!?

  12. You reckon that hatted chap is a fashionista? Yeah right. On the whole I don't believe in hats, I prefer to deny they exist.

  14. What the heck? Why all the hate? Large breasted women make this country great! Why do you hate America so much? Commie.

  15. Mo: When you sing like that, you can wear whateverthefuck. Kinda like Lady Gaga. Though, I've never heard her sing. She's good, I presume?

    OM: Heh. Turtleneck? Razor? There IS help if you're willing to accept the problem.

    TIM: OH COME ON. Stop weeping. It's like you're letting your dog piss on my lawn or something. Just worship Lana on her own turf, mkay?
