Best of Michael Bublé

At his June 26th concert last night in KC, I discovered that Michael Bublé is a funny man. Not only did he make me LOL in my seat, he also dropped an f-Bomb (which my aunt called "irreverent") and poked fun at his Canadian home. Below is what I came away with:

About his concert…
"This isn't a concert. I don't care what you think, but you didn't buy tickets to come to a concert. This is a party. You paid good money to be here, so if you want to get up and dance and sing a long, do. And if someone behind you tries to shush you and tell you to sit down, I want you turn around and tell them, 'Fuck You!'"

About the FIFA world cup and America…
"So I was down in the Power and Electric town, whatever you call it, and never before have I seen such a large group of people so passionate about something they couldn't give a shit about!"

About Canada and sports…
"You guys are all, 'USA! USA! USA!'. In Canada, we just go 'Canada! We try really hard!' or 'Canada! It's all about the fun!'"

After spotting a sign that read "It's my sweet 16 and you're my present"
"Wow. That's illegal. This is my last show you guys. Tomorrow I'll be in jail!"

While he's introducing members of his band…
"And this guy here, he's come back to his hometown in KC. His mom and dad are here, lots of family and friends, lots of tickets, so welcome him home Kansas City!!!! (we cheer, he pauses, he laughs) "Aw, that's so sweet. Yeh…he's not from here, I'm just messing with you guys."

And when I thought the concert was over and he descended below the stage into darkness, when the crowd roared in applause and echoes of 'encore!' spread throughout the cavernous arena, and when I wished he would come back and sing some more and wondered why he never sang my favorite song of his "Feeling Good", the lights flashed on, a mixture of confetti and glitter burst from the sky, and and all screamed at the oh so amazing opening notes to, you guessed it, "Feeling Good"!!!!

PS: No pictures to share. The (insert very bad word here) security guard confiscated my camera at the entrance because it had detachable lenses…I didn't give it up without a verbal fight though.

I'm proud to say that this photo is the product of my first attempts at Multiplicity aka Sequence photography. Thank you to the fabulous Jess for being my model and I'm going to keep practicing until I get it down to a science…well, in this case, an art 😉

If you still don't know what I'm trying to do here, this is what the professionals can do: http://bit.ly/cjdMbv

Fast and surely, I'm falling in love with design. Although simple, I am very proud of what I made today. I think they're cute but I can't think of a practical application for them just yet. Enjoy!

PS: I really want to go to design school!!!

So I’ve always wondered how the photogs “do this” – 50 Michael Jordans  doing their thing on the court. But after watching this AMAZING and straightforward tutorial, I’ll be doing these more often. But alas, with no remote and my lack of confidence with a self timer, I’ll need willing subjects. Let me know if you want to participate. I can’t promise any trips to go do whatever water sport that is, but hey, it’ll be fun nonetheless!

I did not take this photo. loic2co from Flickr did.

Amazing Quote from Louis de Bernieres

“Love is a temporary madness; it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of eternal passion. That is just being in love, which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Those that truly love have roots that grow towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossoms have fallen from their branches, they find that they are one tree and not two.”
