Best. Concert. EVER.

I know I’m a few days late posting about the Green Day concert, but it was awesome.  Franz Ferdinand opened, and they were loud and pretty good.  After Franz, a drunk bunny came on stage, and I’m pretty sure it was Billie Joe.  Then, we heard “Song of The Century” and the beginning of “21st Century Breakdown” as Green Day came onstage.  I wore my new black and purple dress and I’ve never rocked out at a concert like I did that night.   I was kind of familiar with the things they do live, like how Billie does a call-and-return “Heeeey-Oh.”  They played a lot of my favorite songs, and even a couple that I didn’t know. 

There’s a few videos on YouTube of the show.  Here’s one of the final song:

During “Longview” They brought up two people to sing.  The girl that went up first did awesome and really rocked out, and the guy after her was pretty good, too.  But when the guy was done, he ran off the stage to do a spontaneous stage-dive that no one was ready for.  They dropped him, and I was so scared that he broke his neck or something and the show would be over.  Then they lifted him up all right, only to drop him again.  Billie said what we were all thinking, “You stupid mother-fucker!”


This looks awesome!

I found this trailer on, and it looks really cool.  I love just about everyone in this film, especially Ellen Page.  Check it out!

Roller derby had always seemed scary to me, because I’m sure that I would get pretty banged up if I ever tried it.  I get scared of skating in a regular roller rink sometimes!  What if I fall and someone rolls over my fingers? Ouch.  But with roller derby, it’s more like, “What if a girl pushes me and I fall and break something?”  But the women who take part in this sport seem pretty awesome, and I’m sure it builds a lot of confidence.

Another good thing about this video is that it has the song “Boys Want To Be Her” by Peaches (it starts at about 0:48).  I had heard parts of this song before, but hearing it in this trailer made me look it up on YouTube, and it is an awesome song!  What’s weird is that I had just read an article about Peaches in the newest issue of BUST Magazine, and I had wanted to listen to some of her music.
