You J-e-a-l-o-u-s!

Live Earth = fucking awesome. I hardly had to work at all and our seats were awesome! I was actually really impressed with some artists that I wasn’t even excited to see. Like Alicia Keys. She was unbelievable and really revved the crowd up, which was totally needed after Melissa Etheridge went off on a twenty minute rant about the war and how young people today just don’t protest shit enough. Thanks for staying on point there, Melissa!

Plus, people from the Daily Show were there, so I got to meet Aasif Mandvi! That’s right bitches, you wish you were me!

And, yes, alright, there were a few very non-environmentally friendly aspects of the show, but the point is they tried. I mean the beer cups were made out of corn people – that is definitely a step in the right direction!
And there were a shit ton of famous people introducing the artists, like Kevin Bacon, Zach Braff, and Jane Goodall.
Basically, it was all around one of the best concerts I’ve ever been too. And we didn’t hit any traffic and I didn’t get sunburned and our seats were great and I was getting paid to be there. All in all, I’d say that’s not a bad weekend.

I wish I could have been there, and it sounds like you had an awesome experience.

And to respond to you comment on my blog - I knew you were going (I even mentioned it in a post from earlier in the week)! Sorry I forgot to link you in Friday's post, though - my bad!!

Wait, you got PAID to be there? Ok. Your Live Earth kicked my Live Earth's ass.



Except I had METALLICA!

Sound great. Hey, did you eat the corn beer glasses after drinking the beer. Now that would be recycling.

Glad it was a hoot... big shows like that are usually a lot of fun. But I still cannot stand Al Gore and his annoying voice.
