The Dance


Yeah - it was really, really good. I danced (which I normally never do, given my pathetic white-boy style of dancing), and I'm still paying for it now. There's nothing bad to be said about it - I could nit-pick, but who gives a flying fuck about that?

The problem I have with it? It was too good. Thanks, y'all - now every dance from here to the end of eternity is gonna suck by comparison. You've done us a great service. (I'm still gonna buy it - that doesn't mean I don't like your perfection any less)

I was in a weird way the whole time - that hasn't changed at all. Still in a weird way.


Conjure One and Delerium



Bear in mind - this is the first "professional concert" I've been to since Lilith Fair in 1998. And I'd never been to "The Quest" before - which Mal reminded me was disconcerting that it was not called "The Qwest". I hate those fuckers.

There are two songs I "know" know by Conjure One. They played both of them, and three more - don't get wrong, "Tears from the Moon" and "Center of the Sun" are two of the best songs ever.

E-V-E-R.


I was just a little disappointed that they cut out 20 minutes early to do something on stage before Delerium was ready. It's not like they play different instruments, really - and most of Delerium's stuff was already on stage. What the hell?

And Delerium? How good were they? One sentence - "My roommate danced his ass off" They played their usual, "I hope Delerium plays this" tracks - if you've ever listened to Delerium, you know what they are. ("Flowers Become Screens", "Silence", etc.) They had music video-esque stuff happening on tv's and a big screen. The singers are still way too hot, and way too good as vocalists - diva-like, even, without the nasty primadonna crust around the edges. I just wish the one hadn't thanked us from the bottom of her heart after every song - it was a little much.

The Quest is not a place to go if you don't want to see happy little Goth couples, either. But the belly-dancers and the pseudo-lesbians were awful fun. From a distance, anyway.

I didn't dance - I swayed for about 20 minutes, and had to sit down. I'm like that.


And I'm done with Season 3 of Buffy now. While I didn't enjoy the ending as much as Season 2, I think that's because I found nothing about how "Graduation Day" was postponed because of the Columbine shooting. I could look for more on the Internet, but I'm too tired right now.

Sounds like it was much fun.

What are you up to Tuesday evening?

what did you think of the willow/xander subplot?

I figured it was eventual - it had to happen sometime, and it was entertaining when it happened.

I identify with Xander a lot (as a character), just FYI.

Anything specific you wanted to ask?
astcetc snafuwonderlandkat on September 16th, 2003 07:35 am (UTC)
no, I just thought it was one of the more interesting parts of that season

I often have arguments with W.W. about Xander--he thinks Xander should get Buffy and I keep on explaining it would never work

what do you think?
Hoc Est Qui Sumusdiscoflamingo on September 16th, 2003 02:02 pm (UTC)
Xander and Buffy - wouldn't work, but he keeps trying to convince himself it would work.

Xander and Willow - it could have worked, if the timing had been right.

That's all I have to say about that, I guess.

yeah, WW identifies with Xander and thus wants Xander and Buffy to work.

sometimes people can like buffy *too* much

Re: Columbine + Buffy
Thanks for the info - I can see why they wouldn't show "Earshot", but that doesn't mean I agree with their reasoning.

I would borrow Season 4, but I really need to give you seasons 1 and 2 back first. I should have the soundbytes done in a couple days (only the scenes in the library are audible enough to keep, which is unfortunate).
