Green Day!

So last night, [ profile] shihadchick and [ profile] katrin were going to a Green Day show. I ended up having noting better to do and wanted to join them. We spent since Wednesday trolling trademe (the local buy/sell website) and ended up getting outbid or having various other things go wrong on all the options. Last minute I decide to head down to the concert anyway. Worse comes to worse, I figure I can check out Auckland's night life.

We finally find a parking spot (an awesome parking spot that we were super pleased with because it cost us $3 instead of $20) and were walking over to the venue. Some guy on the road next to us rolls down his window, yells "Are you going to the Green Day concert?" we yell back our affirmative and he says "need a ticket?" So we walked up a block to where he could pull over and bought his ticket with much incredulous laughter all around.

There were at least 2 other people trying to get rid of tickets at the door, so it wouldn't have been as challenging as I would have thought.

The concert was great, if a little strange lol. They mostly stuck to their songs that I knew, which always makes it more fun.

They kept pulling people on stage for various reasons, which was sketchy, but worked out fine for the most part. They also kept starting other songs (not Green Day songs) and then pausing to see if the audience would finish the lyric. As [ profile] shihadchick says, they were playing Stump the Audience. They also covered Shout and Duke of Earl at one point and when they sang King for a Day, they pulled out funny hats.

They are weird people in a good way and I'm glad I got to appreciate it.

Nikki, Meara and I gave out CDs so eveyone should have one and Tasha hasn't sent hers to anyone yet so I don't have hers. I also don't have Pei-Yun's due to issues with her iPod being incompatible with my computer.

Vern's coming next post. Takes too long for megaupload to upload things *eyeroll*

May sent me a bunch of Tokio Hotel videos and I can't decide whether to rock out or pat them on the heads for being so adorable.

I think I finally have my website laid out the way I want. Now I just have to work on decorating it and giving it a theme.

I've been listening to a bunch of music this afternoon to find good groups to try. I've discovered that HMV at Amazon has these list things that people create. I found one called 'if you like Evanescence try these' and they suggested Sonata Arctica and Nightwish, so I've been trying to find mp3s of the other artists on the list.

Now all I have to do is assemble these binders, decide what class to take and get one of these things on my list of work to do done and I'll have accomplished a lot today.

Are first year soci courses so easy that it's stupid of me to take one? I wanted to take Social Deviance, but it requires a pre-rec and special professor permission if you're not in that discipline, so I was just wondering if I should try one of the first year courses instead.
