couldn't you see he was gorgeous? he was beyond belief!



The Two Loves of My Young Life

Wow, so last night I saw the Arctic Monkeys and I was beyond blown away. It was one of the best concerts I've ever been to (not better than Prince, of course, though it would be quite unfair to compare the two) and I fell in love.
Not with Alex Turner, but that was only because I was already in love with him, and his been since I first heard his lyrics. My friend Shannon (who got some super grainy but awesome photos which I will post later) and I were pretty close to the stage, on the right side, with a great view of Alex Turner and Jamie Cook. I'd seen pictures of Jamie Cook before and I was never impressed. But, I suppose he's not photogenic because his onstage presence and his very very tight pants won me over. Some people might consider this too personal to put on the Internet (and it probably is) but I have never been so turned on in my life. Seriously, guys, I'm in crisis mode. I think the Arctic Monkeys converted me to younger guys (younger as in, not 60-year-old, not younger than me)! How bizarre is this? It was a great show, they played all my favorites, including my number one favorite "Balaclava", which I finally figured out was about rape (fun!). I had an incredible time. It was my first concert where there was no assigned seating but there was no moshing, probably because last week someone died at a Smashing Pumpkins concert mosh pit at the very same venue. If you ever have the oppourtunity to see the Arctic Monkeys, do not turn it down. They are fantastic! I did not regret spending $45 on the ticket one bit, I would spend much more than that.
My biggest regret is that I didn't have the time to hang around the backstage door and offer my groupie services to the band.




EDIT: Here are some awesomely undistinguishable pictures!


Obviously we're having the time of our lives! You can tell by how psychotic we look! (I'm on the left)
