Wrong thread my dude. The discrepancy between dreams and reality saddens me deeply.

Yeah, I'unno about gigs but I've been to a couple fairly high level classical performances, and live definitely does have its own charm. Actually seeing folks play in person can be pretty impressive. Vids and whatnot do pretty well but the combined sensory experience of live is just... different.

Still sorta' remember watching this one world-class pianist bang out tchaikovsky on stage, though I've forgotten their name. Dude actually played tchaikovsky just for fun -- they were one of the performer's favorite composers -- and it was a friggin' treat to watch. Guy's hands were basically art in motion and the music was great t'boot (it was tchaikovsky, he-who-used-field-artillery-as-an-instrument, of course it was).

Venue did mean most of the people in the audience were pretty chill, though, so yeah :P I have been to a couple outside live shows but I remember nothing about them and there's basically zero chance I'll ever go to another one unless I move away from florida at some point, heh. Do distinctly remember much preferring indoor shows, especially with proper acoustics (ala nice classical performances). Shit sounds a hell of a lot better in a room designed to make it sound better, go figure.

I was part of a hackathon last week, and while that was honestly nice just as a vacation from ordinary work, my team even won the hackathon.  I got a little trophy, and most surprisingly, even a cash prize.  That really made having to take a 6 hour trip to Los Angeles worth it.

The only downside is now I'm worried I'll have to actually implement our team's idea, but I'll cross that bridge when we get to it.  Multiple person IoT automation rules work way better in a nice little prescripted demo than in reality.

I ran roughly 2 miles in 11 minutes.

A (reasonably inebriated) woman asked if she could touch my beard last Friday. After giving it a good feel, she proclaimed that it was "amazing" and proceeded to stare at it in awe while her friend clucked and scoffed about all the bearded men coming out of the woodwork.

Made me feel 'preciated, y'know?

Maybe those police were drunk on the job. One might say they were beer'd.

And we laughed for a moment, and I said, "I never knew"
"That you liked Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain
