Adventures in Bad Camera Phone Pics

My camera phone will soon be replaced by a non-picture-taking Blackberry contraption for the sake of my professional life, so while mourning its imminent loss, I have been giving it quite a workout lately. Here is my last weekend told thru the lens of my telephone:

This is at the Sufjan Stevens concert. He was great, but the venue sucked, and it being a Sunday, the bar had to close at midnight, which means he played for an hour and then got shooed off the stage. Boooo. And he didn't even play Come On, Feel The Illinoise! Whatever dude. And apparently one Vodka Redbull is enough to keep me awake for 48 hours straight.

The next night was Beck, who puts on an enthusiastic show. At one point the whole band jammed with some sugar spoons and teacups. Plus he played one of my favorites from Midnight Vultures: Nicotine & Gravy. Then for the encore he mentioned he'd like some audience members up on stage with him. We didn't even notice that our friend Alicia was missing until we saw her up on stage dancing next to Beck.

I didn't get on stage like Alicia, but I did manage to get a couple new Beck emblazoned terrycloth wristbands, which I totally rocked with my popeye forearms. Anybody got any tape? Cuz I'm ripped.

Bye camera phone. I'll miss you.

Now you just have to bring your digital camera with you wherever you go!

Oh - and nice wristbands!

Are you posing "bullets and bracelets" style from the old Wonder Woman show in that picture?

I bought Puma wrist bands when I was in Cali. cause they were $1.00. My sister told me never to wear them, ever. Even if they are practical at the gym because I am a sweaty pig. I guess I didn't realize how stupid they really look. I'd suggest you taking the same advice. 30 year olds shouldn't be that trendy...
