Also saw All Is Lost with Robert Oldford, which was pretty good. And the other day I watched Upstream Color, the new movie by the guy who did Primer, which was fucking incredible. Favorite movie of the year easily. Absolutely gorgeous and brilliant. It's on Netflix watch it people!
Upstream Color is my favorite of the year so far as well. It was refreshing to watch a movie where they don't spell everything out for you and instead trust the audience to follow along.
On a completely different note, I saw The Spectacular Now last weekend and really loved it. There were a few aspects that bugged me but I thought they wrote teenagers as well as any other movie I've ever seen.
Eh, this is kind of a distinction without a difference to me. I'd bet quite a bit of money that they thought they were taking Molly and not meth. Pure MDMA is definitely more safe than the more reactionary people think it is but, and this is a big but, almost no one actually gets pure MDMA.
Last Friday I went to Gaytheist, Helms Alee and Red Fang in Bellingham. The bands were all great as usual but it got a little out of hand. Everyone was rocking out hard during Red Fang. Pushing back and forth. Semi-moshing but not really. Fun stuff. A guy to my right was one of those people that has to have his arms around his girlfriend at all times. He was not liking the pushing that was going on and was starting to be a huge dick. Everybody was doing the same thing but this guy. He started kicking at my shins and that was pretty irritating. I started pushing back towards him a little harder and the next thing I knew my hoodie was being pulled back. I didn’t know what was going on. I couldn’t breath and it straight up started tearing (a fucking hoodie!). I almost went to the ground and then the tugging stopped. I turned around and saw someone on the ground and helped him up. My brother and friend were trying to Dr. Garbanzoure out what happened. I didn’t know what the hell happened but assumed that it was the guy kicking me’s friend or something. I was pretty furious and left a little early because I didn’t want to ruin the rest of the show for others. I had ligature marks on my neck until yesterday! The more I think about the strength I was being pulled by the more I think the guy that I helped up fell and grasped onto my hoodie to try and stop himself from falling.
Sorry for the rambling. Really great shows by all three bands though. Great crowd vibes (minus my little experience above).
This is my least favorite aspect of mosh pits. There's always some dude there being overly protective of his girlfriend (who more often than not doesn't need any protecting) who gets pissed at everyone around him instead of moving somewhere in the room that is calmer.
Yo cbats! It was good getting down with you for a bit at the show last night! Things got pretty blurry at the end for me...I fucking fell asleep waiting for a bus in the U District on my way home and somebody kicked me and woke me up haha.
Haha, my night went about the same. Things definitely got blurry after the show ended...
At this point, it's pretty much an accepted fact that there will be at least one hip-hop headliner. My question is this: what if it's Eminem? What happens then?
No it's not at all, what are you talking about? The two hip hop headliners we've had that I can remember are Macklemore and Beastie Boys...both of which get a ton of playtime on alternative stations. There literally are no others that fit that bill.
