Welcome one and all my friends, to the show that never ends!

Okay, well, the Smashing Pumpkins concert was amazing. Beyond amazing really. Oh, and it was loud. Incredibly loud, full of the usual trademark psychedelia and distortion that the Pumpkins love so much. My dad even said it was the loudest concert he'd ever been to, and he's been to a lot of concerts in his time.
So the opening band Explosions in the Sky was actually pretty good. They were just a four piece jam band but they had pretty much all of it down and they played for like a good 40 minutes without taking a single break. At the end they all rocked out in synchronicity which was pretty cool. 
Then the main event started- with a few twists
They actually started with an accoustic set and said that they had a few surprises in store for us. Well they played what seemed like 8 accoustic songs plus or minus 1 or 2. But the songs they played were all really good, and he played 1979 without any other accompanyment besides his guitar. SO that rocked
THen they had an intermission and moved on to the electric set which was just plain awesome. It was loud, brash, charging and psychadelic. Just pure rock music- the way it should be.
They ended up playing Tonight, Tonight, which they usually never do so that turned out to be really quite awesome and then from there they launched straight into Tarantula which they played with a ton of heart, so it was all just really great to hear. His band was also pretty good, although Billy took center stage whenever he could, as per his band controlling nature. But still, it was pretty sweet. THe lighting for the show was crazy. It went beyond strobe lights. It was like a bunch of LED triangles that flashed a bunch of different colors so often. I'm really glad I dont have epilepsy cause if I did I'd probably be dead. Seriously. Got a bunch of pictures though. On another note his bassist was the stunt double for Uma Thurman in Kill Bill! small world eh? Anyway-
They ended up ending the sh ow with Joan Jett and the Blackhearts "I Love Rock and Roll" and he let the crowd sing along with him so that was pretty fun.
All in all it was just a great concert, probably the best I've ever been to, and if I ever get the chance I'd love to see them in concert again.

I'll be singing SP songs for weeks, so sorry if it gets old :P


I wanna be there when you're happy...
I wanna love you when you're sad...

Like the ocean needs the moon to take the tides away
All we need's a little time to chase the blues away
The sun is out and it feels like its always gonna stay
Let this last forever
Turn tomorrow into yesterday

There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold
And she's buying a stairway to heaven
And when she gets there she knows if the stores are closed
With a word she can get what she came for

And she's buying a stairway to heaven

There's a sign on the wall but she wants to be sure
And you know sometimes words have two meanings
In a tree by the brook there's a songbird who sings
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven
And she's buying a stairway to heaven

There's a feeling I get when I look to the west
And my spirit is crying for leaving
In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke through the trees
And the voices of those who stand looking
And she's buying a stairway to heaven

And it's whispered that soon, if we all call the tune
Then the piper will lead us to reason
And a new day will dawn for those who stand long
And the forest will echo with laughter

And it makes me wonder

If there's a bustle in your hedgerow
Don't be alarmed now
It's just a spring clean for the May Queen

Yes there are two paths you can go by
but in the long run
There's still time to change the road you're on

Your head is humming and it won't go in case you don't know
The piper's calling you to join him
Dear lady can't you hear the wind blow and did you know
Your stairway lies on the whispering wind

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll
And she's buying a stairway to heaven

There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold
And she's buying a stairway to heaven
And when she gets there she knows if the stores are closed
With a word she can get what she came for

And she's buying a stairway to heaven.

Hey jude, dont make it bad.
Take a sad song and make it better.
Remember to let her into your heart,
Then you can start to make it better.

Hey jude, dont be afraid.
You were made to go out and get her.
The minute you let her under your skin,
Then you begin to make it better.

And anytime you feel the pain, hey jude, refrain,
Dont carry the world upon your shoulders.
For well you know that its a fool who plays it cool
By making his world a little colder.

Hey jude, dont let me down.
You have found her, now go and get her.
Remember to let her into your heart,
Then you can start to make it better.

So let it out and let it in, hey jude, begin,
Youre waiting for someone to perform with.
And dont you know that its just you, hey jude, youll do,
The movement you need is on your shoulder.

Hey jude, dont make it bad.
Take a sad song and make it better.
Remember to let her under your skin,
Then youll begin to make it
Better better better better better better, oh.

Na na na na na ,na na na, hey jude...

Well, I got my class schedule, I'm pretty happy with it, cept for the mistake, but we'll get that fixed soon enough.

1. Free (Modern Physics should be there, thats the mistake)
2.International Relations- Trainer
3.AP English Lit- Rescigna
4.Latin IV- Messinger
5.Study Hall 1st sem./ Science Fiction 2nd sem.- Clarke
6.AP Physics- Stover
7.AP Calc BC- Cote


so yea, all in all I'm happy with it, or at least I will be when they fix it. and damnit there better be a modern physics class, or else I'm gonna kill someone, especially since they had it listed on my scheduled course list. and if they dont then I need to scramble to find a new 1 credit course, cause there is no way I'm going to have only 5.5 credits sr. year. But maybe they listed it as free cause its a self study course, I dont really know. whatever, I'll update the situation tomorrow!
