Yes, this is my ticket for the Incubus concert tonight. No real art lesson today, but read on if you will. The concert r0x0red my ass. Yes, it was the kick in my booty. Incubus played so many awesome songs for two hours straight. It was amazing. The entire Key Arena was packed to the brim with kids. The floor was one big mosh pit and above the mosh pit was rows and rows of people in seats. Where was I? Front and center? Crowdsurfing? No. The last row in a seat that didn't exist. I had to steal someone else's seat. Why was I not front and center, where I should have been? Because I didn't get General Admission tickets. The reason for that is that I only learned about the concert on Tuesday. Nickelback is coming to town on May 15 or so, so remember: General Admission == mosh pit fun! What else? Incubus lacked the energy of their opener, but of course, they had to pace themselves for four times as much singing. Yes, two hours of rocking music really did me in. I'll give you a few details. First, I didn't eat dinner before, so I was running on no energy. Secondly, I didn't sleep much last night. Thirdly, someone was blowing pot smoke into my face. Contact high? No. Should I have? Most definately. Let me tell you that I do not get high unless I will it. I do not will unnatural highs, so I am immune to, yet hypersensitive to drugs which is why I do not do them. Instead, I breathe air deeply and convince myself that I am invincible. It works better than any drug. So these people are smoking pot somewhere in front of me. I can't see who, but I know that they're smoking a lot of it. They must have gone through $60 worth of pot judging from all the smoke the blew up at me.

Incubus didn't cause this behavior. They encouraged it once long after it had started. And we can't hold everyone accountable for quotes out of context. The lead singer, Brandon was sitting on the couch on stage between soft songs and said, "Wow, this is just like a log cabin. What we need is a fireplace." Lot of cheers. "And you know what I need is a joint." Lots and lots of cheers. Then he went on with his songs. The first popular song of theirs is called "Drive" and I'll give you a hint of it: "Sometimes I feel the fear of uncertainty stinging clear. And I can't help but ask myself how much I let the fear take the wheel and steer. It's driven me before and it seems to have a vauge haunting mass appeal. Lately I'm beginning to find that I should be the one behind the wheel. Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there with open arms and open eyes, yeah. Will I choose water over wine and hold my own and drive? It's driven me before and it seem to be the way that everyone else gets around. Lately I'm beginning to find that when I drive myself my life is found. Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there with open arms and open eyes, yeah. Will you choose water over wine hold the wheel and drive... " I would think that they would be against drugs if they're likening fear to drinking wine behind the wheel and visa versa. I might agree with someone who says that there are worse things in the world than drugs. But that doesn't mean that we should light our neighbor's house on fire just because it's not as bad as firebombing an entire city. Same thing.

Perhaps JF will be fruitful tomorrow. It's almost ready, so it shouldn't be too hard to churn out Page 5.
