Tuesday Aug 30th
Stuff that happened:
On Sunday night I went to the Duran iRan concert. Yes. iRan. I stayed for over an hour, but by 10:30 I had given up hope and called it a night. Monday morning was going to be crazy and I needed my sleep. If it had been a good reason to stay up late, I would have. Gladly. Alas, it was awkward 80’s bondage and porn videos playing in the background while dude sang into a video camera set up on stage to project onto the massive screen. There were disco balls, an homage to David Bowie (natch), and the same costumes worn at nearby concert dates, which were tailored to make them look hip but only made them look “old but pretending to be 24”. The 80’s techno effects were frenetic and were making my brain buzz. I even smelled POT – someone was getting high for this concert! It was probably the drunk guy sitting behind me who had clocked me in the head TWICE before the third song was over! I thought about writing a post, but then decided that I had no right to review this band – I was not a fan, so of COURSE I would not enjoy the concert. If I were a long-time fan, my experience would’ve been drastically different. So, as a non-fan, I did NOT enjoy the concert. But thousands of people in that stadium were having an amazing time, and I’m happy for them. The 15 year old Bruno Mars lookalike that was sitting in the next row knew all of the words to most of the songs and that alone was worth going to the concert for…
I was listening to JRFM on Monday morning and I heard a COW mooing!!! My eyebrows raised and hope sprung a leak! My heart raced – is MOOLAH coming back??? It’s been YEARS! I LOVE MOOLAH!!! She was the sweetest, loveliest, most delightful bovine that you ever did see… or hear… Maybe, just MAYBE, they will have a concert announcement in the next few weeks. *happy dance*
Three out of 4 Vacay or Pay players chose the cash, but only one walked away a real winner. Only one chose to be in the draw. I would totally choose vacay… the odds are even better now!
Dude on Rock 101 got himself $1000 before he was bumped off the gravy train. Nice!! The names they called were not on my list, so I couldn’t help them. I’ve pretty much given up on finding people – it’s a LOT of work and very stressful! Not worth my sanity right now. Maybe when the kids are back in school…
Is the ZFX driving anyone else crazy already?? ME ME ME ME!!! Ugh. I don’t have a good guess anymore – I thought it could be a sewing machine, so I called and was caller 6. Then the person who got through guessed “sewing machine”. Huh. And since that’s not it, I’m all out of ideas… for now!!
I also got through for the 7:05 Skeet the Skank play. I tuned in at 7:07 because I had zoned out for a minute, and heard a song. I figured I may as well start dialling, just in case they had JUST done the cue to call. It rang right away. The cue to call was still playing when they answered “you’re caller 7!” Um… what?? Caller 7? But, the cue to call is still happening – they must’ve opened the lines and started answering before the cue to call even happened! Humph. Whatever. So I hung up and redialled, got through right away, and was caller 19. So in that 5 seconds that it took to reconnect, you answered 12 calls? WTF?! That’s a jagged little pill you’re asking me to swallow…
HERE is a reminder of previous ZFX’s – if your guess is on this list, do NOT try to get through – they will not use a previous sound! At least, I doubt they will…
