@ShakedownSax yeah, I found myself at the back of the seated section for GA, tons of room back there. But yeah, classically oversold cap show.

@ShakedownSax lol, cap Security is soooo aggro. Only time I’ve had my pen or any apparatus taken in 35 years of concerts was at cap during a weir and wolf show a few yrs ago. Now, I know to just be super stealth. Good to know about Trevor side, may hit that up on Tuesday/wednesday

@Phreba@shakedown.social avatar

@ShakedownSax I was mid ga 15 rows back. Hit the pen, exhale straight up(dumb). 20 sec later I’m getting shirt collared, and harangued all the way to the front doors. They copy my Drivers license info and tell me next time I get caught, out of cap for good. I was ranting at them the whole way that this was so damn excessive. They don’t screw around there.

@Phreba@shakedown.social avatar

@fogelnet @ShakedownSax yup, of all the venues I regularly attend, it’s by far and away one of my least favorite. I’ve learned a lot about how to make it work. But, your points are spot on. The worst part is that you expect it to be jam fans friendly, think twice.

@lizardllama never forget washing hands next to Marshall at Dick’s in 2019. They had played Pebbles in set 1 and it’s a fave. I said to Tom “hey pebbles, huh?!? Thank you for writing that, it’s a favorite”, his reply, “and they played number line!!!”. Lol, just a little bit defensive about that song.

@thesizzler @lizardllama yup, btw, I’m no hater of # line. Honestly wish they’d deliver the jam on it like they did in summer ‘09, but it’s been ages.

An earlier discussion of 84 - 85 era dead made me relisten to part of 7/02/85

I guess there are Lost Sailor haters out there, but this one was memorable to me then, and it still seems great now.

Maybe the Crazy Fingers before helped set the mood.

@mrcompletely @dave_heumann @thesizzler @tor_haxson speaking of Bob songs, someone tell my why Esau wasn’t a staple in their repertoire for years to come. One of my favorite Bob tunes.

@Phreba@shakedown.social avatar

@mrcompletely @dave_heumann @thesizzler @tor_haxson yeah, he kept changing the lyrics. Much as he did with BT Wind. Listened to an ‘83 show today and was reminded as to how much I love that tune.

Some on Mastodon just love to take a tiny sliver of good news and turn it into doom or cheap shots.

I’m done w/ people who do that.

I’m fine with genuine RATIONAL POLITE disagreements or criticism. I have to point that out since I’ve been accused of/blocked for intolerance of diff opinions👈🏼which I’ve always welcomed

This is about mudslinging, labels, name-calling, misinfo, & disdain for scarce positives & replying w something designed to provoke &/or kneejerk-negate welcome news. Kthxbye.

@GottaLaff for real, it’s maddening. The most self righteous among us can’t help themselves with their commitment to never ending snark and doomsdayism.

Phreba,
@Phreba@shakedown.social avatar

@GottaLaff the problem is that when your online persona is dedicated to pessimism and skepticism, you’ve got no answer when presented with a ray of light. All of those people desperately need a dog and to get out and touch grass. And their response is always dripping with condescension. Tbh, it must be so exhausting for them.

@GottaLaff @tuban_muzuru I don’t see this as “self pity”, if anything it’s pity for those that can’t accept any good news in their life.

@GottaLaff @tuban_muzuru yeah, the beauty of masto for so long was that we didn’t have the typical social media snark and bs. Increasingly; starting to see it creep in.

I find it incredible that the number one payment app, Venmo, defaults to sharing your payments and payment information with all your contacts that have Venmo. I feel like most don’t realize it, and for those that do, why would you want your payments public? I don’t get it, someone make this make sense.

I will not vote for Biden and I urge everyone I know to abstain from voting for him or Trump. They are the same. This is a dual-party fascist state. Biden is a 21st Century Hindenburg. I previously felt a need not to give presidential voting advice publicly. Today changed that. https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2024-election/trump-biden-collide-split-screen-trips-border-immigration-spotlight-rcna140899?taid=65e1095ae6aea10001992eb2&utm_campaign=trueanthem&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter

Listening to 3/29/84. I have had certain blindspots in my GD listening over the years, whether it was due to lack of access to quality tapes in my younger years or just general disinterest. 1984 is one of those years along with 1983 and 1986. Anyway, the band is in fine form and any show that opens up with Walking the Dog can’t possibly go wrong. So far so good and this soundboard is pristine!

Phreba,
@Phreba@shakedown.social avatar

@Treeline your probably correct about the “taste makers” and their influence. But, I think in my circumstance, I just didn’t have a lot of 83-84 and 86 tapes in my collection. I had a ton of ‘85 as there was a glut of ’85 soundboards in circulation. But, I’ve been meaning to plunder the years in question for quit some time and that time has come! I’ll take any and all solid recs for ’83. ’84 and ’86 that you or others might have. This 3/29/84 is an absolute gem!

@JeanPDeliet @GottaLaff yup, “Biden is vulnerable , look at that uncommitted number, and did we mention that he’s old.” …. “ But look at Trump, running away with it, one has to wonder why haley stays in” rinse and repeat.

“How dare you tell me that our democracy is more important than 30,000 lives in Gaza.” - Harvard student on @msnbc.

Who wants to tell her about the 550,000+ Americans who died in WWI and WWII so she could have a democracy that let her express that sentiment?

Phreba,
@Phreba@shakedown.social avatar

@shoq @msnbc political neophytes with no understanding of world history are entirely maddening. Add to that, so many of these younger people are oblivious to the fact that the Russians have flooded social media with ideas and stories designed to divide the left. It’s working, just as it did in 2016 when these kids were more concerned about getting their braces off than American democracy.

Judge rules Nathan Wade's attorney must take the stand again in election case

Anthony Michael Kreis:

Folks don’t appreciate they may be exceptionally bored with today’s wrap up testimony. It could be entirely unremarkable and reality may not live up to the hype. (It also could be the worst day ever for the DA’s office). We don’t know a thing, there’s only reasonable speculation.

@GottaLaff @MarvinFreeman can we just send Tish James down to Georgia to straighten out this mess and prosecute these mfer’s already?

I honestly hate Radiohead. Whiny, miserable, depressing music. Nails on a chalkboard.

My dream Radiohead show would feature Slash running onstage while Thom (pretentious “h”) Yorke is singing and giving him a Stone Cold Steve Austin stunner — WWE style. Yorke goes flying. Slash cracks a beer and starts up Paradise City.

Had one of my normals who knows nothing about them ask me what my favorite song is and I'm sure I'm not the only one who has a very hard time answering that question. I want to ask follow up questions to help frame my answer

Phreba,
@Phreba@shakedown.social avatar

@LostReflector so hard to not torture those people. “Favorite studio song? Or live?” “Depends on the era, so, if we’re talking 1994; probably Melt or Mikes, but now if we are thinking late 90’s has to be Ghost or Carini, then of course there are this songs that always deliver like, Gin which transcends eras….” Naturally, they’ve left halfway through that convo regretting they ever asked.
