A few words on carbonation and music
Friday, May 28, 2010

1. Though I live part-time in Nashville and love it, I ... I ... I ... er ... uhhh ... I don't like live music. It's a sin, right? And a shame: living in MUSIC CITY and not liking live music. Actually, I don't like live anything: plays, concerts, readings. My wife says it's because I'm a control freak, and, unlike a book or movie at home, I have no control over the delivery of a live event. Okay, maybe a little truth to that ... but I also just don't like being cooped up anywhere for a long time. I'm a big guy, and the seating is often less than ample at live events. Also, live events mean people, and I don't like crowds. I think this comes from growing up in a small town in land-rich, big-sky eastern Colorado. Also, let's be honest here: Live music is usually not very good. Even the professionals sound better with some of that magic mixing done in the studio. Why watch/listen to something mediocre when you know it's better on the ipod?

2. Fresca gives me gas.

If you want to experience outdoor concert with some freedom of movement Smoky Hill River Festival Salina Kansas is the place to be every 2nd weekend in June. Wait a minute.. speaking of movement the outhouses are kind of scary. Steve
