Business as usual! Thursday Potpourri


Hi all. In honor of our upcoming concert, I thought I'd share some pictures and thoughts to get us in the mood!

"It was like being in the eye of a hurricane. You'd wake up in a concert and think, Wow, how did I get here?" John Lennon


"When I go to a concert, I can't believe that people pay lots of money to see a band that they obviously like and then they dance the whole time." John Hughes



"A live concert to me is exciting because of all the electricity that is generated in the crowd and on stage. It's my favorite part of the business, live concerts." Elvis Presley

At all concerts, you will find Destiny.

Especially Destiny concerts.

I was thinking someday of doing a concert.

I play a mean piccolo.

Hi

I've never been to a concert. It sounds really fun.

I asked my mom. She says I can go to the concert on Saturday. Cool!

I've talked to the band and everything is on track for Saturday.

If you've been to their website, you've probably noticed we're having a little trouble with our crew. There's a chance they'll be on strike by the weekend. But if that happens, Kalila has promised that she and the other band members won't be divas about it and will manage their own equipment for the Saturday show.

My grandmother plays the piano, but I've never seen anyone perfoming music on a stage. I'm very excited.

I was dancing in front of the TV with MTV on way too loud when the Police came to call ... you know... that night. I even phased out of the conversation when my favourite band came on behind the larger policeman's legs; I can't believe I did that.
I never listen to music now. Before, all I thought about was being 16 because Mum was going to let me go to gigs. Me, Chelsea and Jack planned to come back from 'Give it a name' deaf!

Bo said...

Heh, I know all about those police raids. Ricky says they're a 'public relations disaster,' whatever that means.

Maxwell said...

I will go to my first concert.

I will sneak in without paying.

I will get a front seat.

I will observe people and the band.

I will make notations for my research.

I will come home and add the information to my files.

Aidan said...

Cool, Shadow. We'll make sure you get home okay.

Concerts are good when they're so loud they drown out the crowd's thoughts.

The only concert I've ever been to is The Hedgehogs. Maybe you've heard of them? They're only the biggest boy band in England. My best friend, Elizabeth, has all their CD's. She also has a crush on their lead singer, Dylan. I like Killian best, probably because I actually got to meet him last year.

Dear Ms. Mira,

Oh my. Those are strange pictures, aren't they? I do wonder how they got the grizzly bear to hold the guitar, dear. That does seem rather dangerous.

I have not been to a concert since I was a young girl. I am quite looking forward to it.

Should we bring our opera glasses dear? Oh, I am so excited. I do so love an orchestra.

Sincerely,

Ms. Fettleston

Ms. Fettleston said...

Dear Ms. Adrienne and Mr. Maxwell,

Hello, dears. I don't believe that we have previously met, but it is lovely to make your aquaintance.

I am Ms. Fettleston. I hope we have many pleasant talks together.

Have a nice day, dears.

Sincerely,

Ms. Fettleston

I like concerts! Lots of drugs!

Ricky said...

I'm afraid I don't approve of drugs, Anonymous. Reality is weird enough. Or at least mine is.

Hi Aiden

Thanks. I've never been. Bet it's fun.

Aidan said...

Hey Mrs F,

You might want to bring earplugs.

Opera glasses are cool, though. Retro.

Chicken Little said...

There's concert? But you need earplugs? Does that mean you could go deaf? I don't want to go deaf, but I want to go to a concert. What if there's a sniper? I saw a movie once where there was a sniper, and it was a concert and people got shot!!! I don't want to get shot, and go deaf. But I do want to go to the concert. I don't know what to do.

Henny Penny, should I go to the concert even though I might get shot and go deaf?

Nevin said...

Wow, those are some interesting concerns, Chicken Little. No one's ever been shot at one of our concerts. Bitten, eaten, or taken out to the tour bus for raunchy sex, maybe, but not shot. So please don't worry.

Lazaro said...

And I don't eat chickens. They have tiny brains.

Chicken Little said...

Raunchy sex? Raunchy sex? Oh no, oh no, oh no!! Not raunchy sex.

Henny Penny, if I go to the concert, do I have to have raunchy sex? I don't wanna, Henny Penny. Please tell me I don't have to have raunchy sex.

Bo said...

Ugh, don't worry chicken. I'm strictly into mammals. Preferably humans.

In fact, I'm hoping Candy will be there and want to meet me backstage after the show.

Kalila said...

Bo, Lazaro, you better behave yourselves Saturday. You too, Vic, wherever you are. We've got enough problems with the werewolves about to go on strike.

Besides, what if there's a reporter on the premises? We want good reviews.

Vic said...

Oh, so that's what this is all about. You just want another interview. What did you hire me to be the front man for if you're going to hog all the attention?

Chicken Little said...

Oh. Okay. That's a relief.

Uh, why aren't you into chickens? Is there something wrong with me? Maybe there's something wrong with me.

Henny Penny, is there something wrong with me? He doesn't want to be with a chicken!!

Ricky said...

CL, have you thought about asking DESTINY for some help with your anxiety issues? Maybe knowing what's in store will help.

If you talk to her, do me a favor and ask if she has any ideas for how I should handle the band's werewolf problem.

Chicken Little said...

Um, okay.
