This was the best concert I have ever seen, and I’ve been to a lot of shows. This is one tour I’ve wanted to see all my life above all others, and for a great long while it looked like it would never come to pass. Although I have seen Gilmour’s Floyd, and they were great, Dark Side of the Moon is the definitive Floyd. Musically speaking the drummer was phenomenal, and I left with a new appreciation for Water’s Bass skills. The entire backing band (second guitar player excepted) was masterful.

This was the best concert I’ve ever seen, this was the best concert I will ever see, this was the best concert these musicians will ever play, this was the best concert the sound guys will ever mix. This concert was going to be the highlight of many peoples lives. The only disappointing part about it was that now I’ve done everything I’ve ever wanted to do in my life, and I don’t know what to do next.

iWake: Ipod & alarm clock mashup September 7, 2006

UPDATE: got mine today via overstock.com. (target only sells theirs in store)  Kinda flimsy feeling with cheap plastic, and the ipod connector isn’t tight.  However for $80 this is still a great bargain, and it seems to work as advertised with only a few minor annoyances which I’ll elaborate after I have more time to try this bad boy.

Brilliant, at only $79.95, the new iWake is an alarm clock with an integrated ipod dock and speakers. Wake to iPod. Gradually increases volume every 5 seconds all the way to 11. Available at Target.

bling-blingI travel Internationally a lot. You know what I see out there? Not the hate you would expect listening to FOX news. The world loves American culture. Not the Disney kind either, hardcore gagsta’ rap. It’s true, everywhere I go, American “hip-hop” is the music of choice. Here’s the part I don’t get, this is true even in countries where they don’t speak English. They still like something about the “tone” of American hip-hop, even if they can’t understand the words. It’s funny listening to really hardcore gangsta rap, you know like “fuck you, mutherfuckers,” in an upscale bar. We won the world’s hearts once with Jazz, now it’s our turn again. We have to take advantage of this opportunity, this may very well be our chance at world peace.

If we put 50 Cent in the UN instead of Bolton, do you think anyone would fuck with our resolutions? I think not, who wants to have a cap in their ass? So I say crank up the export machine to high. Lets get our most precious natural resource back in the studio. Snoop would make a great ambassador, hell he started his own language. Instead of bombs lets drop “the bomb.”

Instead of sending troops, lets send Suge Knight and his posse, at least our rap stars have the latest in body armour.

After the world embraces us for our cultural heritage I predict the economy will improve, after all, America is the only place to buy real bling-bling. I can really visualize a ghetto fabulous world, can you?
