PLAYING THIS WEEKEND BY EAR.

¡Hola chicos y chicas! EES FRIDAY! Thank God. Week has felt long and a bit exhausting for me.
At work as I write this. A nice quiet type day I suppose. Don't know for sure what I am doing for the weekend, except I am going to try and enjoy it as much as I can. Still holding out hope here that I can attend one of the two big awesome concerts at the Bowl, but I guess I'm okay if it doesn't come to pass. If it is meant to be, then it will happen, right? I have never been part of such a rush to see a band. Imagine if this was a modern-day Beatles show? GOOD GOD! I was supposed to be caller 20 on our local rock station yesterday to get two free tix, but got as close as caller 14. ARGH! I've tried it all, and I'm so tired.

I should be devoting my time to more important things, like saving the planet and helping the homeless or something. After all, this is just a concert show. GOD DAMN IT WILL BE AMAZING THOUGH. LOL! Ya know, the greed displayed by some of these ordinary folk selling their tickets is astounding. It's human nature man. Get with it WAT. You're so idealistic at times, like that dumbass Don Quixote, without realizing or admitting how the real world truly functions. I think that's why I am depressed a lot of times. We humans are instinctively greedy, selfish, envious, and violent. Shoot, I should just list all the Seven Deadly Sins while I'm at it.

I' m just your typical moody depressive Cancer on a roll today, but this will all pass once my weekend officially begins. I bid you farewell, and leave a comment please, even if it is just to say hello or to shut up and die.

Have a great one!

Hi Wat old pal, just stopped by to say I'm writing a song about you. Could you do something crazy and headline grabbing so the song will have more impact?
Thanking you in advance,
Zimmy

Screw helping people, especially the needy. They really get on my nerves. Go to the bowl, there will be scalpers.

Hey Wat, I'm posting your film next week. I'm penciling your post in for Tuesday. Is that good for you?

Dennis thinks you may need to see a doctor for the crankiness.

Hi,

I remember the days when a group of people would buy a raft of concert tickets, and instead of scalping, they'd give them out to their friends who were short on cash at the moment. I went to many a "free" concert when I was a broke college student thanks to friends, as as soon as I had some dough, I would buy extra tickets too. This was not unusual at all. There were always scalpers though, and we looked down on the ones who tried to make a big profit. I never begrudged them a small profit, like 20 bucks or something. But many scalpers are greedy.

Hello cool laid back man, what is the cost of these concerts? I am feeling hope that you will be going.

Son, do you really think humans are instinctively greedy, selfish, violent --what a thought. What about those who are intrinsically kind, empathetic? There's a full range, son, a full range. When you see a baby laughing, for example, you don't have to fight off instant feeling of violence in order to interact with the baby. You don't want to instantly steal it's college fund. Your first feeling is probably a sweet feeling, because I know you're a good boy and you're evolved.

I hope you get to go to at least one of the concerts, son.

HELLO!

I don't think we're instinctively all those things you listed. It's something we learn as we go along. But what really floors me is that these scalpers, selling tickets at astounding prices, are selling them. So who's to blame, the scalper or the idiot who shells out the ridiculous amount?

hi Wat, did you go to a concert tonite?

alice said...

Hey Wil - I hope you are able to attend one of the concerts - it seems that it would mean a lot to you.

Don't give up on the human race just yet. I believe there are many individuals that are innately kind, some who work very hard at it, for karma's sake, and others who are clueless to the effect they have on others. Sure.... people come from a negative place all the time, and they disapoint us, but we don't have to buy into their methods or philosophies. I'd rather have hope and I think you would too.

Hi Wat- I just wanted to say hi. Was in LA Friday night and wondered...where in LA is Wat...
