    During In Rainbows I had a Sony DSC T10 and a Canon Sd1100. Since Coachella I have been using a Canon Sx230hs.

    The hands are awesome, but I'm just a little sad that because the breeze was so strong on Tuesday the beams didn't reach very far back in the crowd. I also just thought it was funny that they had a specific cue for them on the setlist.

    Is there a video around of Over the Rainbow somewhere? I was so shocked so pleased with that opening opposed to Breathe being the first big confetti celebration of crazy.

    The Soft Bulletin night was the better night for me because of the ridiculous amount joy I get from hearing "Race for the Prize" but I noticed they skipped a song. They skipped "Slow Motion"

    Other than that it was the best concert I've ever been to. I reaaalllly hope it does become an annual thing.

    This is because there are different releases of The Soft Bulletin. They play the US release, which has The Spiderbite Song on it instead of Slow Motion.

    Ohhh thanks for clearing that up. Still would've been nice to hear Slow Motion though.

    Although, I watched the Flaming Lips documentary Fearless Freaks on Netflix the other day, and I have to admit that my infatuation has slightly waned due to the whole part about Steven Drozd's heroin addiction and the way the band handled it.

    You guys havn't seen the Fearless Freaks?! WHAT IT NOW. The scene with Steven shooting up giving an interview to the camera is one of the most bleak real life footage I've ever seen. Great documentary about the band's entire careers and upbringing.

    After watching My Morning Jacket's Storytellers a few days ago something occurred to me that seems odd...Jim James went on about how he believes there's other lives, other universes we'll live in, etc. But Wayne explicitly said he thinks this is all there is...which is surprising coming from someone who seems so high so often. You'd think he'd have a more out there take on the whole thing.

    I thought Wayne made it very clear that he doesn't take drugs anymore. . .

    I agree. It does seem like somebody who would have some pretty crazy ideas about life, and it seems like a pretty stark thing for him to think. I just watched Fearless Freaks for the first time the other day, and he sort of touches upon when he's talking about the robbery at Long John Silvers. . .

    Goddamn, that was a show. I was feeling like utter shit beforehand and almost (but not really) debated not going, but man was it ever worth it. The Aragon ended up being the perfect venue for them, big and weird enough to hold all their madness without them getting swallowed up. I got there kind of late, so unfortunately I missed Marnie Stern and ended up towards the back of the room, but I could see and hear everything just fine. I know there's been a lot of concerns about the band/Wayne not sounding good live, but they fucking nailed The Soft Bulletin. It was just so damned cool hearing tracks like "The Spark That Bled" and "The Gash" live, and of course the whole thing was enriched by being played in sequence. Wayne got very emotional at certain parts and it was pretty touching. I definitely wanted to cry during "Waiting For A Superman," which was kind of stripped down but devastating. The visuals and Wayne's chattiness never seemed distracting, but helped make the experience leave a stronger impact. I always recognized that there were some majorly melancholy aspects to the album, but the second half hit a lot harder live. Made me kind of glad I didn't trip in the end as I'd probably get really contemplative about morbid stuff. It already kind of did without chemical assistance. They encored with "Brain Damage" from Dark Side and "Do You Realize", of course, but both were way fun live. I'd still love to hear some earlier stuff but that's asking a lot these days. I'm just grateful I got to see this show as it surpassed all my expectations. Now if they could get to work on a Transmissions From The Satellite Heart set . . .
