Last night alison_says, the LJ-less Brent and Kelly, and I ventured out to the Yes concert at Philips Arena. None of us really listen to Yes, but the tickets were free, so what the hell. It was a very odd experience. See, growing up in Pulaski we never had concerts. And then I got to college and saw a lot of cool concerts. Then I moved to Atlanta and I pretty much only go to concerts here if it's something I really really want to see. So, if I'm at a concert chances are I'm excited and it's going to be an active experience for me. Well, we were sitting there watching the band and I was eating French fries and it hit me how utterly detached I was from the whole experience. Like, I almost expected to pull out a remote control and go surfing. It was a very passive and surreal experience.
Then during intermission we went to check out the suite we had access to. We could hear, but we couldn't see the stage because of the set. But we were so little into the music that we ended up hanging out in the suite watching South Park. I was a little embarrassed that I went to a concert and ended up watching TV but hey, it was South Park.
Then we went back to Brent and Kelly's and watched even more TV until way too late and played with the cats and ferrets.
Oh, and we saw christine9600 and thegreyman! They were quite surprised to see us there, but for some reason I wasn't surprised at all. LiveJournal makes for a small world.
