I was sitting on the train on the way to work the other day minding my own business (playing solitare on my phone). I keep little candies so when I get thirsty I have something to pop in my mouth that won't make me pee. I hate the train bathrooms. I had some Cherry Lifesavers in the side pocket of my purse. I got my lifesavers out to have one. The guy next to me, who I do not know, ask me for one. I let him have one (it's only a lifesaver) but I did think it was strange that he'd ask.
Heh. I would ask a stranger for mint or gum for my breath, or a kleenex. I always as a mom-looking person with a big purse. Moms carry everything.

I have seen other concerts at Wrigley and it is awesome, especially on a nice night. If I to choose between a) ALL the concerts I have seen there and b) Just Pearl Jam, I would choose b).
Good luck getting tickets! They go on sale at 10 on Feb. 9 at tickets.com .
Texting J about it now. His birthday is that weekend. We could plop the dogs off at my dad's, get a hotel in the city.

Girls that I didn't know in high school would always ask me if I had any gum. Yep. Can you have any? Nope.

I haven't, but I would. Individually wrapped items are fair game.

But asking a stranger for food off of their plate is WEIRD.

PJ also had a rockin' more metal song that had an animated video to go with it, I remember it had to do with computers taking over humans and the world. Loved that song,but never tracked the title or anything. Tonka probably knows what I"m talking about.
Heart is wonderful in concert. The New Pornographers with Neko Case. Neko Case. Jason Mraz is one of the best performers I've ever seen -- his live shows are nothing like that schmalzy slow crap they play on the radio -- he has horn sections and does a lot of early '70s funk style music, it's great, very high energy.
I would like to see Jason Mraz.

I've seen him at least three times. Every show was great and different from one another.

This just makes me want to hurl.

Ahhhhhh, maybe, just maybe, you shouldn't be a "legal" immigrant if you are just going to come here and go on welfare programs:

http://news.yahoo.com/immigration-fallout-say...

It's just retarded how bass awkward liberals in this country are on immigration. Who do these people represent ... Americans or foreign nationals who just want to come here and have Americans care for them?

What should you do when your government no longer represents its own citizens ... regardless of who you elect?

He was younger. He probably thought I was his type of mom figure. Sad.

It was a role of lifesavers. I peeled back the paper and let him grab his own little lifesaver.

I am so excited. What are your thoughts on Eddie Vedder's solo stuff, like from Into the Wild, etc.? And my favorite song by PJ is Elderly Woman Behind the Counter in a Small Town. If I could recommend one song, that would be it. The live version is spectacular.
Other than Queen, who would be your favorite group/person to see in concert?
If I lived in Chicago, I'd be jealous.

As far as his solo stuff, I'd spend money to listen to him read the phone book through a McDonald's drive thru speaker.

Though Eddie creates a different set list each night before the show, Elderly Woman seems to be a pretty high probability staple. Last fall, I saw the group in Atlanta and him solo in Orlando and he played it at both shows and its also on the majority of the live albums I have.

Ha!
My friend was down for a weekend and he was like "Remember when we went to see U2 and..." I was like "Dude, are you sure it was me?" Swore up and down I went, but I guess I just never wrote the experience to disk.

Race and Mimi: This morning's "Random Vinyl" was from Rush's debut 1974 album. as I listened, I thought "Wow, these lyrics aren't the usual brilliance I'm used to from Rush." Turns out, that first album, they had a different drummers and the songs on that album are very different (about relationships) than subsequent Neil Peart-written songs (songs about individualism, existentialism, etc.).

But it was good!

Kid Rock is coming here in March or so and I'm on the fence about going. I'm more of a fan of his early stuff than his country-ish stuff.

Kid Rock is touring with Bob Seger, at least they're coming here together. I wouldn't mind seeing Kid Rock, but Seger? Retire, dood!
