A liquid crystal display (LCD) is a thin, flat display device made up of any number of color or monochrome pixels arrayed in front of a light source or reflector. It is prized by engineers because it uses very small amounts of electric power, and is therefore suitable for use in battery-powered electronic devices.
That’s seriously how I feel sometimes. Everything is become digital these days. That was especially true last night at the concert I went to. I went and saw Mae and MuteMath at the Glasshouse last night and it was incredible. If you haven’t listened to either of these bands I would argue you are not cultured enough in the ways of music. MuteMath especially is probably one of the best lives shows I have ever seen, incredible. But getting back to the LCD thing, I was amazed last night at the kids with their cell-phones and digital cameras just taking pics all night long. Everytime a member of a band would be in a rock-star stance or something looked sweet on stage, BAM!, all the cell phones were in the air and I was watching the show through the kids LCD screens. I guess it’s good for the digital market these days, its just what the kids are in to. Not to mention the fact that I saw this kid type a paragraph in his phone keypad in like 4 seconds. It was amazing. I guess I just don’t have the 411 on how the kids are communicating these days. Kind of makes me feel old, or out of the loop.
But as far as the show was concerned, I thought MuteMath stole the show, hands down. They are so talented I can’t believe it. Yet I must warn you against a band that I really really really really really couldn’t stand. The band is called Circa Survive. They are horrible. Everything about them made me want to leave the show right then and there. First, they came out in womens clothing, then their lead singer made some comments I can’t repeat in a PG rated blog. And I’m pretty sure the lead singer was inebriated because he threw up the stage. It was seriously the worst experience. Just steer clear of Circa Survive. They didn’t even deserve to share the stage with those other great bands.
I can’t really hear out of my left ear now. I think my head was only like 15 feet from a humungous speaker and now all I hear is a muffled ringing. I’m sad about it. But hopefully it will go away. Alright, I’m off to study. You kids have a great day, and remember, you’re never too cool to wear ear plugs.
