[noise |only wanna be with you.- hootie and the blowfish]

i'm gonna do this cuz i thought it was hilarious. i found it on some random person's LJ from one of the comments on my bsb icon. anywhoo... here goes.. i'll just copy and paste her directions:
(original date of post: 11/29/04)

I want this entry to reach 1,000 comments. Yes, one thousand.

Post anything you can think of. Tell me what you had for breakfast. Tell me what song you're listening to. Tell me about something that really pissed you off today. Tell me dirty secrets about yourself. Tell me anything. Hey, you can even have a random conversation with yourself or others. I don't care!

There isn't a certain date or a certain time that I want this to reach 1,000 comments by. I just want it to reach it. That is my goal. Just because. Be cool and link this in one of your entries!

Yeah, and I'm not going to make one single comment. Cheating isn't fun.

Don't let me down! You know you want to! =D

Ready? Go.



aight.. i'm gonna change something. i can't help but comment.. so.. i WILL. *grins*

It was rather fun. 'Cept the acoustics in the stadium (outdoors) were bad, so it wasn't too good. but that wasn't their fault. please don't hurt me. lol

lmfao. yeah... i dunno.. as much as i love bsb.. going to a concert of their's isn't the best experience. esp. when you are surrounded by a bunch of fuckin retards who don't understand the CONCEPT of a concert. you are there to listen. to music. not to fucking scream your heads off and essentially hear your own shrieking for 3+ hours, without stop, might i add... if they just wanted to scream and not listen.. how about you go put on the album in your room and have a ball. i just wanted to grab a machete and go insane. *cough*

my ears are STILL ringing from that and other bsb events... yeah... i gotta go to the ear doctor.. seriously...

Yeah... there were some crazy people there. And my dad went too (LOL) which was hilarious. It was Sept. 22nd, 2001, and my dad thought the terrorists were gonna come get us so he started screaming when they came out, along with all the girls. hehehe. he thought they were dying or something. psh. but I agree. Concerts are for listening to other people for once...

Have you been to a concert? Most bands I like... have died. I would have loved to see Freddie Mercury of Queen. *sigh*

i've only been to a bsb concert, sadly.

yeah.. the thing about NYC is.. concerts sell out FAST. and if they're actually artists or bands that i WANT to see, well, those sell out in less than an hour usually... so yeah... that and i don't have the money and my parents think concerts are "dangerous". don't ask. ;oP

that makes sense. most tickets go fast. I wanted to see Jon Stewart when I was there this summer but you have to call in January basically to get tickets for June. crazy. of course, they're free, so it's even crazier.
I've only been to old bands, so I get tickets faster than the old people. muahahaha!

many old bands. ooo the Clash! London Calling - love it. I've seen a bunch of bands you've probably never heard of: the Monkees, Herman's Hermits, the Union Gap, the Turtles, the Buckinghams, and the Grass Roots.

old bands are cheaper too! whoot! it's awesome that you got to see the Darkness... how was it? (besides amazing, lol)

You mean what concert tour? I dunno. I think it was after the... third album came out? (was that Black and Blue? can't remember) But I think they did sing some songs from that.

Actually, my neighbour had free tickets from his job, and since he only had sons he offered them to my sister and I. We weren't crazy fans, we had the CDs and stuff so we both took some friends and our parents (lol) and went. I guess I did want to go. I'd go again. I love concerts. I love the atmosphere, even if I would like to hurt most of the audience. hehe.

awwwww lucky bum. what did your neighbor do that gives him free concert tickets???

yeah.. i never got to buy them.. or buy them on ebay.. or win them through the radio or any contest i could apply to online.. and believe me.. i entered EVERY.SINGLE.ONE.

but.. hold and behold.. one day.. over the summer.. after the whole rehab thing began.. and the tour was re-scheduled.. i recieved two free tickets for the 9/4 show.. with nothing but a letter or anything.. i was like.. how'd i get these??? but i GOT THEM. so i really didn't care.. hahahaha

oooooo.... ;)
I wonder how their album's gonna fare. I mean, most of their fans from then have grown up, hopefully their haven't lost their appeal. Or they may appeal to a whole other group now.

well.. i really don't care if they can't break their previous records.. or meet them for that matter.. cuz... well.. obviously, the music industry isn't what it used to be what with dl'ing, piracy and itunes and all that stuff...
but yeah.. as long as bsb was able to maintain some hardcore fans like me i'll be happy. at least i'll know i'm in good company with fans that aren't teenies... *cough* hopefully, at least.

hehe... teenies. I used to be one. *sigh* how I've changed. I think the music industry has also changed in the fact that there's most of a focus on rap and teen girl pop (a la Hilary Duff *vomits*) and the boy bands never really got any respect. they're more of a punch line though. Hopefully BSB evolved into something more.

ehh bsb was always more than just a boyband to me.. they fought for their songs to be on albums.. the songs they wrote and co-produced... and they always fought to be able to play instruments during their shows and actually just sit down and show their singing talent rather than dance throughout the whole entire show.. so yeah...

i dunno.. the music industry has been crap for most of the 00's.. i haven't listened to radio regularly in about 2 years.. so i really don't know or.. frankly.. give a shit about new music...
if there really is someone good.. i'll care.. but.. ehh.. the last new artist i fell in love with was probably gavin degraw...
