Let's be sure we're talking about the same thing. I'm not talking about when the crowd is trying to sing over the singer. I'm talking about when the singer shuts up because the crowd knows it note for note. How can you hate this?



And here's a little sliver at the end with your boys. Best I can do.

Nope. But I've been at Pearl Jam shows where we sing the entire first verse to Better Man. Yet the most powerful, almost religious, crowd singing experience was at a small venue, House of Blues, with Lenny Kravitz, and us singing Let Love Rule.
Hey, Tom Sawyer came on the radio today and I didn't change the station. Might have even sang along.
I LOVE "Better man." Am tempted to do it at karaoke.

I've seen the "Somebody to love' video before (or other live ones with george Michael). I hated both examples you shared.

i pay to see the performers, not to hear other fans. but I accept it as part of concert going.

Loved PJ in concert, would have loved to have seen Queen.

sigh. And Fitz and the tantrums are coming to town, but it's on a night I have a softball game.

but you DON'T have to feed your kids that stuff. I have friends whose kids have never had a hot dog in the home, they've never served chicken nuggets, etc. It's just that it's EASY stuff to prepare for kids when you're tired and overwhelmed or you just got home and the kids are hungry NOW. kids' tastebuds are far more sensitive than adults', so things that may taste fine to us can be overwhelming to a young child.
And yet, my friend's 2.5yo can eat spicier foods than *I* can eat.
My new stove has preset icons for cooking pizza nd chcken nuggets. I was told that mom focus groups were the reason. They had them when my girls were young but we nevr served nuggets at home

<quoted text>I'm gonna check it out now. I love crowd singing. Good crowd singing. At concerts. Like when the crowd knows every word and the singer shuts up for a whole verse and the crowd takes over. That's powerful.
try tom petty's live version of "breakdown" then... he even comments about being put out of a job.... the crowd even does the "rounds" in the chorus..

fun stuff.

Pelly, do you remember how the lakes in the office park have the bridges and there are different "levels" to the lakes? well, not any more.... the bridge closer by my building has just bareley a couple feet clearance under it, when it usually has several, and an obvious different level to the lower lake.

and the main road on the outside of hte east side of hte office park was closed off all day. i think salt creek way over flowed its banks.

The lakes would be a natural low point kid of like the marshy area over near the driving range. I drove in today but had to take Sheridan because the Edens was completely flooded in a couple places. My parents basement flooded. My sister and BIL did bail out duty. Saw you were stuck with 3 wet basements. Bummer

My biggest complaint about our Internet-fed instant news society is the lack of copy editing. I woke up this morning to 3 alerts from CNN about the violence in Boston overnight, but when I tried to read the article on their site, I could barely follow it.
