Past to Present: Hands at Gigs

Read the whole thing to see where I stand on this (which is actually not in agreeance with the hipsters & rock stars).





[thanks thearcticcat!]

This is true

Talked about this the other day. People care too much about documenting experiences rather than enjoy them while they happen.

Love everything that this stands for. 

Blah, blah, blah. Why does it matter? If people want to take pictures & videos of a concert, let them. Nice way to remember a concert. And It’ll keep happening anyways until artists or the record companies suddenly decide they don’t want to allow it anymore.

The responses below are the ones I agreed with:


For me, the documentation is all part of the enjoyment. Without my camera in my hand the experience isn’t quite complete.




F*** you people who complain about us darn kids with our darn cameras. I love my concert pictures. Kindly b*** me.



All it really boils down to is this:


Times have changed.

So deal with it folks. That’s my opinion and I’m sticking to it. 😛

Bold what applies: I am a morning person. I am a perfectionist.  I am an only child. I am Catholic. I am currently in my PJs. I am currently pregnant.   I am currently suffering from a broken heart. I am left handed. I am married. I am addicted to myspace. I’m shy around the opposite sex. I bite my nails. I currently regret something I have done.  When I get mad I curse. (And yet I purposely don’t do it much on my blog, haha) I don’t like anyone. (True on SOME days, but not ALWAYS…) I enjoy country music. I enjoy Jazz. I have a car. I have a cell phone.  I have a pet. I have at least one brother or sister. I have been to another country. I have been told that I’m smart.  I have been told that I have an unusual sense of humor. I have had a broken bone. I have caller ID on my phone.  I have changed a lot over the past year. I have had surgery. (On my wisdom teeth, that is.) I have killed another person. I have had my hair cut within the last week. I have had the cops called on me. (Literally a one-time thing a very, very long time ago. I do NOT I wish to discuss that in detail.) I have kissed someone of the same gender.  I have mood swings. I have rejected someone before. I have seen the Lord of the Rings trilogy. I have watched Sex and the City. (But I hated it.) I like Shakespeare. I love to cook. I love Michael Jackson. (I like his music a lot. Him… I have mixed feelings about him.) I love sleeping. I love to shop.  I miss someone right now. I own over 100 cds. I own over 100 dvds. I own & use a library card.  I practice a religion that is not considered mainstream. (It’s Christianity, but not mainstream Christianity.) I read books for pleasure in my spare time. I sleep a lot during the day. I strongly dislike math.  I think Britney Spears is pretty. I was born in a country other than the US. I watch Soap Operas on a regular basis. I will try ALMOST anything once.  I work at a job that I enjoy. I would classify myself as ghetto. I can name all seven dwarfs from Snow White. I am currently wearing socks. I am tired. I am currently waiting for someone. I lost contact with someone.  I hate Miley Cyrus.  I think Party In The USA is catchy. I’d date Harry Potter.  I can name all the past presidents of the United States. I know who was president before George Bush. I love pickles. I need the internet to live. (For the time being, at least) I prefer vanilla over chocolate.  I watched Star Trek. I watched all six movies of Star Wars. I own an Xbox. I think music is life. I.
