This is the kind of IA we come here to read! Superb!

Sorry for the schadenfreude.

Re: “You Ruin Everything, You Ruiner

My two cents:

I recently saw Saint Motel at the Crystal with my girlfriend. She spent much of the concert filming with her iPhone. I asked her to put it away so we could enjoy the show (and when I say we, I'm referring to the 10-or-so people around us, directly affected by my lady-love, holding her phone up, blocking people's view and blinding people with the screen...

I was getting pretty annoyed with her, around the third song of their set, and I felt myself getting embarrassed by her behavior- until I looked a little further around and saw about 50% of the audience doing the same.

I decided to say, "fuck it" and started dancing, instead of being some kind of asshole about it.

If Ms. Case makes a request before her set, it's a request. That's all. If the venue has a clearly stated/posted policy regarding the use of cellphones/cameras then it's on the venue to enforce that policy. Acting like a spoiled child during one of the shows you put on and gypping people who paid good money to see you is a super-dick move. Period.

sorry, IA, but Neko Case hates Portland and she didn't read your post.

Re: “I, Anonymous

Yes. To. All of this!

Wtf is wrong with people that have the absolute and undying compulsion to be IN nature while simultaneously flipping a metaphorical double-bird TO nature and screaming, "Haha! Fuck you grand and sweeping vistas! I'm a consumer and I win at existing outside and disconnected from you another day! Marvel at my ability to enjoy all the trappings of my boring, repetitive, sterile life back home, here, in the woods!"

Re: “You Don't Know Me

While the person I,A is writing about sounds like kind of a dick, there are people out there (myself included) that simply cannot remember someone that they don't interact with on a daily basis because of a Traumatic Brain Injury. I have trouble remembering the names and faces of everyone I meet at my partners social functions and it's dicks like you that make me want to put my fist through your throat and run out of the room crying like a baby, in the exact same moment.

I didn't choose this. It happened. I live with it everyday and it sucks because I can remember what being "normal" was like.

Also, he probably thinks you're an asshole and loves winding you up whenever he gets the chance.
