there it is.
why would someone go to a gig and concentrate on filming it instead of actually just enjoying it?
or maybe they concentrate on the bootlegging before and after the performance?
No, so why would you give two craps if they enjoyed it for nothing or not? Bottleggers used to do it for money. Now it's just an "I was there and you weren't, aren't I great" ego trip thing.
Anyway, the best memories of gigs should be in your head and not on a fuzzy and blurred LCD screen.
but even so, why bother?
an important gig?
(or was it 20 million? cant remember) who tried and failed to get tickets for the gig can listen to it and hear for themselves whether they sound good nowadays?
the word on the streets is 'they dropped the bomb'.
i go to these days a large proportion of the people there seem more intent on finding the best angle for their camera phones than actually watching the band do their thing.
as if the only way they can justify the moment of the show is by having a fuzzy distorted clip of it to take home after.
Put the camera-phone away and just enjoy yourself!
its besides the point anyway
its an audio recording
