Glee 3D +

So Went to see Glee 3D today.... I think it is the 1st concert movie I've seen at the show but not sure about that but most likely it is.... Now of course how much one likes it or not has to do with song selection.... With out giving to much away they filmed one of the performances of the Glee tour in 3D and then also followed some fans..... So this is kinda a documentary in a way.... I really liked it... Again though based on what song they where doing... Now in terms of the 3D to me it seemed more like High Def? Don't get me wrong it looked great and you could feel a lot of the movement and when you saw the people it was them and the background as kinda two different things hard to explain but I enjoyed it....

The Bit of the downside is that yes it was short well but it was a performance and I'm guessing there was more they didn't show... Or maybe it just seemed that way.... Not sure kinda woke up tired I hate that... I could feel it in my legs as I walked.... I also wanted to see Rise of The Planet of the Apes or some 2nd movie but there was to much time between and maybe could have seen Planet of the apes but didn't want to chance missing any of it.....

I was planning on going to Club Diablo to see Jason and the Punknecks with Hell's Harlots but I think that is out.... Again waking up with low energy or tired is why.... I might be ok to stand for hours and have a drink or two and take photos but doubt it think that is out who knows.... If I was up for it I would have loved to stop at Zillycakes but no way walking all the way down elmwood...... But I did stop into the store at Elmwood and north and they had some football game on maybe I'll watch some of the bills game tonight? Also across the street at that former church there where all kinds of people dressed up... Not sure if it was an event or if they where there for before or after a wedding not sure?

EDIT: I forgot to mention the one thing also is that now with the Fair (Erie county not state) and it being so nice out I felt like I should be there the thing tonight is why I didn't get tickets for the motocross event.... I wonder if having ones heart in two places is why I feel not empty but on low gear? That being said I will go for sure a week from today (ultimate night of Destruction) and just get the moto event ticket there since Tops doesn't sell them anymore not sure who does...... But dragging my self around there might not be the best any ways oh well I guess.....

Infringing Thanks e:heidi

So Just gotta explain something before I get into the pictures... With work and internet and doing some things as if you read my previous posts you would have seen maybe I have been a bit behind.... So last night I watched a HBO sports show on Derek Jeter That I thought was amazing... So had to post it here and on facebook.... So I see (e:tinypliny) has a post with 85% Dark Chocolate (my the way that stuff I'm sure is very intense that the 65% stuff is .......) and then there is a comment from (the awesome by the way think we would all agree on that ok maybe awesome isn't the right word feel like I'm in Bill and Ted's but the point is given) (e:Heidi) about fire dancing... I don't know much about it but have seen it in the past and it is all ways pretty cool so figured I might go and ....

That being said I'm not in bar shape at all not that it was at a bar... But shirt covered in Cat Hair from having to move the cat before (long story short exposed to a bat so has to get shots) into its carrier.. Not to mention very sharp claws they don't like sharp till they climb you to get away from you and they magically find the holes in the fabric you are wearing (t-shirt)... So the point is I had been sweating all day I felt and felt gross and nasty (one can't smell ones self so whom knows and whom knows what cents people hate or like.... I hate fish and love gas pumps and Cheetos ).... The point I'm getting to is a felt kinda gross and kinda lazy hence just the wave........ Funny thing is when I got there I didn't give where I sat any thought I could have been right in that spot.... Ok Picture time....... And a very short youtube video.....

Just wanted to add that these pictures pretty much look like how I thought they would.... If one is close enough not me or has the flash set correctly you can hit the darkness with a blast of light and get the person and the fire... How ever (again I'm not good enough to do this) fire is even when not being moved is all ways moving and it is alive (don't mean it has a sole or soul but it has energy and sometimes dances around)... Yes fire is bright on its own but think about when you are in bright room and turn on a burner and can't see it...What makes it look bright is that it is brighter then the dark.. Somewhere there is a level where you can get the fire and see the person being lit by that fire and it is perfect...I'm not at the level I'm sure there is someone on this site that can get that but guessing it still isn't easy... Even though it doesn't seem long that shutter stays open (is it called a shutter on a little digital camera?) longer based on settings or even setting the iso and then it captures the fire moving... So the streaks of light you see is the camera catching the light as it moves (tripod if you have one is great so your hand doesn't shake and make things even worse) and what ever the pattern was for it being open is the streaks you get... I'm guessing that people who are Pros can figure out how long (or what shutter speed to use to get amazing shots of the fire moving of course at a high level the person moves to but that is why they are pros) to keep the lens open for.... Think this works a bit differently on film cause if you over expose it (not sure on this) it could cause problems (again I'm not at that level just do this for fun and play with the settings on the camera no light meters or anything like that)... Think I got at what I was trying to add... This is also how those cool high way pictures look like they do cause the camera has a set freeway and the cars lights it catches as they keep moving and that creates the lines how they get colors not of car lights (blue as an example)... I have no idea....

In any event It was fun thanks to (e:heidi) for the comment and (e:tinypliny) for the post that got it hope ya'll and everyone else (you'll) liked this post as well.....

Friday Skiffle

So Now at Sportmen's Tavern still not sure if it is with an e or an A and is it owned by sportsmen or is it multiple ones but in any event it is a great place and from what I have heard they get a lot of great bands... I'm sure there are bands I would like that I've never heard of and are not from my Genre of music... The food is pretty good and the drinks are cheap good place for a show... One of these days I need to check out the upstairs since it is now open... Granted the pix are if cause of the light coming in the window but The Skiffle Minstrels are allways a good time... There was an (e:peep) there that I don't know dancing (e:lindyfix) or something like that he teaches dance and has had performers at Music Is Art festival many times so here are the photos.....

Derek Jeter 3k

So as some of you know I'm a big Movie fan... Just watched a great Documentary ... Derek Jeter 3k... It is not only about his quest to get 3,000 hits but also a bit about his life. It is very good....

Now I have a small 22inch HD TV that I thought was 1080p but I think it is really only 720P and my cable box says 480 all the time so I'm a bit lost. Some shows are the right width but don't take up the height so that tells me the proportions aren't the same..... Even with this Baseball and the non baseball parts still look amazing. You can really feel the movement as well it is tough to explain... It is like Jeter is at bat and the fans are right there. It is really amazing to see... I really do think that Baseball is made for HD... I was at Sportsmen's tavern for the first time and they have a Nice HD TV on a wall and Baseball looked amazing it really did... Hard to explain with out seeing it......

Wish I could explain it better but the movie ( hbo special) is great

The Sheila Divine

I can admit that there was a time and it still might be true that I had seen The Sheila Divine in about 8 different Venues and that was in Buffalo never did the travel to Boston thing.... They where my favorite band well or right up there with Metallica.... Glad they are back together and like the new stuff (only heard it on facebook)..... First and last Square of the year unless you count going to Alice Cooper.....

The First band was good and called something like Potter's Farm. I'll talk more and try to explain not that I can what I was going through during the headliners...... Well here are the shots starting with sky shots not all of them are from there...

With the possibility of Crowd Surfing and the lot I wasn't going to stay up front So I moved and got a drink for Tokyo Police club..... By the way doesn't that sound like a Japanese Animee wonder what if any the connection is.... Doesn't matter really......

There where a bevy of women there.... Oh there was this pretty and short and solid chick in front of me whom I wish I was strong enough just to pick up of course sure with all the text she was taken.......

I'm sure There are a bunch of ladies and guys who come just cause it is free and outside and nice and you can drink and don't care about the band I have no problem with that... I have no problem with the groups of hand holding girls or the dancers...... Now all that being said though all the couples and girls and the generally mellow feel of the music was making feel I don't know how really... Not alone not lonely not like I wanted to bang everyone it was just kinda an odd feeling really...... But it was kinda a down feeling in an odd way......

Burlesque Infringing Wends.

So On Wends-day I admit I did have a good time even though I drank to much and couldn't keep it down and got nicely tossed from Nietche's I think if I was the guy I would have let me stay and said... Ok you are cut off.... Keep your mess there and don't get it on anyone else.... Ah what ever still had a great time.... Now the thing with me is I have all ways been a fast eater, Worker, and drinker.... So Tasty fruity drinks go down easy and with the natural speed thing it is easy to get to much to quick... I also don't think the Sminorff Ice that wasn't really cold like it should be may be what spawned this.... But Burlesque a band poetry of the adult kind I mean erotic readings what isn't to like........

Will I survive?

Next 3 days after work maybe crazy..... I don't like writing about future plans cause so many times things may not happen....But what I'm planning should be a good time.... Assuming with work I survive all this...

Wends. Nietches trying to get there early so I can get a seat and a drink and fire away with my camera of all the lovely Burlesque ladies doubt it will stop at one drink......

Thurs. The Square at the harbor The Sheila Divine... So want to hear the old stuff and don't really know the new stuff but some of it sounds pretty good. If the ear is still plugged up think it will get pointed at the speaker.... Can't make the ringing that much worse can it.... Other two groups don't know the music..... Hoping close so can get photos..... As I rock out...

Fri. Skiffling at Sportsmen's ........ All ways a good time........
Hoping to get there early maybe a spot at the bar where I can see and photo the band... Wonder if there is a menu at the Bar?

Sat. I'm sure there is some movie out but think I will need to pretty much assuming I'm still living get the DVR caught up....
