Meg Myers @ Lollapalooza 2014

THE GOLD STANDARD

It's been about one year since my discovery of Meg Myers. This year SIA had a standout performance at Coachella 2016. Meg Myer's Lollapalooza 2014 performance is in the same league. In fact, that this point, it is the gold standard and perhaps it may never be matched or surpassed.

I'm surprised things don't start flying off during stage during the exorcism! It's a sort of mood cleansing. You'll come out refreshed.

Anyways here it is. Watch it before it gets taken off the internets.

Would love to hear your feedback...

EXHAUSTED IN SAN DIEGO

What fun and enthusiastic show! It's part NBA. From what it sounds like, it's her hometown? Hometown performances are always the best as performers give it their all.

Avril Lavigne: Let Me Go

Won't let you go... Don't let me go...

Oh but that piano! And that camera work!

I can't believe I haven't posted this before. This is a masterpiece of a song. It's one of the best songs ever and perhaps the best one from Avril Lavigne.

Did it make you cry too?

PS: Wish Avril a full recovery with her health. Let's hope for some more songs!

Transviolet and other bands: BTS of Music

BEHIND THE SCENES

Parasites and predators. They're everywhere. If there is a information gap, they will take advantage of it. People that look like human being that aren't...

Wisdom comes out of experience. It's best not to go into areas one is not familiar with. When going into uncharted territory, be sure to hear advice and accept guidance from others who have experience. Make sure every step you take is reviewed and approved by someone knowledgeable. Get multiple opinions when in doubt.

The goal is to be violated the least possible times.

Electric Vehicle chat with Moshe 05-04-2016

ELECTRON CHATTER

We recorded about a week earlier. I want to thank Moshe for the wonderful chat. I hope this is educational to those that are not familiar with electric cars. We discuss solar power, Tesla's future potential, electric car credits, pods, speeding tickets, and few other topics.

Meg Myers on Conan 04-26-2016 and Meg in 2012

THAT HAUNTING, THAT SADNESS. THAT HAUNTING SADNESS

Damn the burden of being born sensitive...

Speaking for myself, there's this dark sadness and hopelessness born out of circumstances out of one's control. Wishing things were a certain way vs. what they really are. Knowing things can be better and try to push things in a better direction but the desire and need to make thing better being denied... It's because of people's stubbornness, egos, stupidity, selfishness, or whatever else it may be. You're trying to help but it's not working. You're trying to understand but cannot. It's all out of your hands. There is helplessness and a hopelessness. There a dull pain and ache inside that never goes away. It can't go away unless your dreams are realized. In time, you realize they can't be.

Here's a really good article on Meg Myers back in 2012 and sheds some really deep and personal aspects. It's really good even if you are not a fan of her music.

And.. Here's Meg on Conan's show 04-26-2016. Congrats to everyone in the band. I suspect 2016 will be bigger than even they realize.

Grimes Concert @ LA's Shrine 04-21-2016

FOR ALL AGES

I attended Grimes's sold out concert at L.A.'s Shrine Auditorium on 04-21-2016. The capacity of the place is over 6000. My quick count counted around 7000 so that was close.

I was lucky to catch the concert standing at the balcony corner which was pretty close to the stage. Being tall, I was able to see over the people in front of me. But that security guard guarding the VIP area next to the pole and curtain blocked 1/3rd of my left view of the stage as she leaned to look down during the majority of the concert.

RIGHT CLICK AND OPEN IN NEW TAB TO GET THE FULL SIZE PICTURE

What struck me was just how clean the stage was. No wires, no feedback speakers, etc.


Now this really caught me off guard! There was a 5th grader standing in front of me at the concert! It was an all age admitted concert! I spoke to her dad and he told me she was a really Grimes big fan and that she had dragged him there. I saw even a younger child on the balcony to my right when the dad mentioned to me there's even a younger child than his daughter attending.


When I saw the other side had less people, I walked over there. But alas, I was told halfway on that side that it was a VIP area.


Even though the show was sold out, I thought the balcony could still hold 500 more people. Here's a look at the balcony towards the rear. I NOW notice people posing for my shot LOL.


On Youtube, videos of her concert feature a lot of flashing lights and LEDs. I didn't notice so many from my angle. They were probably all pointed forward. Also, I was out of the direction of the assault of the speakers. (I think concerts are too loud). I brought along earplugs to tame the noise of I had to. I put them in 1/4 of the way into my ears since it wasn't that loud. When I walked the middle part of the balcony facing straight forward tot he stage I noticed it was much louder.


Here's more pics:
