"And we live in a beautiful world
Yeah we do, yeah we do
We live in a beautiful world"

I went to see Coldplay last night at the TLA. What an amazing show. I have no idea what to write about though because regardless on how well I depict the performance with words, it will pale in comparison to what was experienced. What a passion driven performance. Coldplay rawked.

1 Giant Leap was the opener. "Opener". It was a projection and began with Bono introducing the piece, then four songs followed, with Michael Stipe and Robbie Williams doing a ditty or two. In between "songs" were interludes on how to make the world better and actions that have hindered self development. One Giant Leap. Good concept, but not as an opener. The crowd booed at it and made snide comments about the film. Everyone expected an opening live band, not a tutorial.

But the Coldplay roadie said it best when he joked "What?! Are you afraid of fucking learning something?!"

"I've been so damn tired....It went down at the May parade"

An hour and a half till my radio show and I am exhausted. This shall prove interesting. Hmmm...perhaps a donut and coffee run before hitting the studio. I have nothing really important to say, just trying to keep myself entertained before I spin some discs. :-) When I surround myself with the music though, I'll wake up.

I bought a new toy today. A refurbished Minolta SLR camera. My previous capturer of glimpses saw its demise a few weeks ago when I dropped it. And the zoom lens fell off. And it started making weird whirring noises. I should have known then. But no, I had to keep taking pictures with it and I was surprised when they came out all blurry. Silly me. I am excited though, I get to devriginize my camera at the Coldplay concert tomorrow night.

Codeplay. In concert. Sold out in less than 5 minutes. Codeplay. Live. Woo!

So when I came back from Cancun all I wanted to do was shower and sleep and eat. But no, I was greeted by a swarm of ants in my room. And they weren't marching.

So I released my angst by crushing them with my index finger. Ahhh...what power I possess over the mighty ant. The gross thing was when I shook my keyboard about 10 ants fell out. Dead, dead, dead, dead........ So this fiasco has been going on each time I sit at my computer. For the past few days I go though my ritual of mass destruction then go on my merry way on the internet. Every so often I discover a straggler. But there aren't a lot of ants, no more then 10 at my initial sitting, then a few throughout the rest of the day. But they are only around my desk, no where else. So about ten minutes ago I destroyed three of them, no worries, it wasn't a harsh death, very quick. But this one ant was carrying a piece of food. I couldn't crush him. I felt bad because I think I killed all of his friends. I figured I would let this one go because he was brave enough to venture out and find dinner for the ant crew. They were all probably watching me, the master of their fate, cheering him on and taking bets on the time of his demise. So I let him go.

But tomorrow he better watch out....
