Wish You Were . . .
. . . NOT Here.
I went to see Roger Waters in concert last night and I must say the Old Man can still kick some ass! The performance included a good blend of Waters' contributions to (the real) Pink Floyd and many songs from his solo albums.
What tickled my PFFT-o-meter had nothing to do with Waters or the whole event itself. It's those stupid juvenile morons with laser pointers that did it. PFFT!
The show featured some very... uhm... Pink Floyd-ish background videos on a giant screen with lots of random colors and random shapes and, sadly, a couple of laser dots chasing each other.
When I realized one of those annoying dots was coming from the same place as the big green cloud around me, I turned around, grabbed the guy (who obviously hadn't seen this coming) by the neck, broke his glasses, shoved the laser pen down his throat, and stole his joint as everyone in our vicinity applauded.
No, I didn't do that. There was no laser maniac around me. PFFT! But I wish whoever happened to be next to them would have. They must be stopped!!!
This little annoyance aside, the show was excellent. I had a very good time for the entire 3 hours it lasted. If you have a chance, go and see it. I recommend it to everyone. Just leave those laser pests home.
