I just saw them - I just wanted you all to know that
it was a strange way to spend a lunchtime. it's a bit odd having to go back to work for the afternoon...
that was as intense as it was brief
was that today?
not sure I can be arsed though
Come see them on Thursday for FREE:
w/ Comanechi and Awesome Color.
to Old Blue but I expect to have to queue for hours before I get let in.
i can't believe the amount of people in there without earplugs. HEALTH are LOUD you crazy bastards.
the guy on the door was checking out my atlas sound t-shirt. he wanted it.
of going to a loud noise gig.
you wouldn't go see a firework display and wear sunglasses, would you?
fuck earplugs at gigs...
the sound is a lot better with earplugs in. also i don't need you to tell me the "point" of going to a gig, thanks.
it's not at all ridiculous. if they wanted you to stand there and appreciate the sound, they'd play everything quieter. or give out earplugs at gigs. being blasted by waves of noise is a crucial and major part of the fun.
but meh, your loss.
you feel the same way when your ears are bollixed in a few years time?
Hearing loss is not rock 'n' roll.
i've been to hundreds of gigs without earplugs. i go to about five gigs a week on average and sometimes i forget my earplugs. i always regret being forgetful because my ears ring for ages and are sometimes in pain after a particularly loud gig, such as HEALTH at the luminaire. i prefer the sound with earplugs and they are recommended. i don't give a fuck if you think it's a part of the fun as maevans rightly points out, your ears will suffer for this "fun".
i'm going to see danananananaykroyd tonight and you can be sure i'll be wearing ear plugs.
and didn't wear earplugs. and it was fun. if i'd worn earplugs, i'd have felt like i was missing something is all i'm saying.
there's a huge long list of things that are recommended you do in life. some of them i choose to do, others i don't. i'm guessing you probably don't smoke, drink excessively or any of the rest of it. fair enough. but some people do, and like experiencing the full volume and force of gigs.
don't worry, i'll die long before you, and you'll have years to stand around thinking "i told him so".
