So, went to see the Evanescence concert tonight at Avalon in Boston. FaaaaaaaaaaaBOO. We managed to snag seats, which was good beause I wore the booted heels that aren't great to stand around in for a few hours. They played a mix of old and new songs, although they didn't do "Missing" but that's alright - she did "Lithium" and "My Immortal" on the piano - great stuff. And I loved the crew shirts that read "Crew are People, Too."

The best, bit, though, was realizing that...drumroll, please...The Snow Queen is, in part, a total Evanescence-like ROCK OPERA! Oh, YEEEEEEEEEES, precious! This still requires some thinking - and my few silly attempts on the way home (Silly jaywalking stupid CHIIIIIL-DREEEEEN dundanunna-dundanunna-NAAAAA) are obviously not going to make it in. But fascinating nonetheless.

Life is good. Watching Battlestar Galactica 2.5 - good stuf, if silly episode, thus far. "Sacrifice"on at the moment. Oh, silliness Duella. Bah. Right - I'm rambling now. Lunches and dinners and concerts are good. Singing for the 11:30 a.m. tomorrow. Rehearsals on Monday. "Wintersmith" by Pratchett pure Pratchettly delight.

Mood: Tres tres TRES heureux and joieux
Music: Hwell, BG 2.5 is on but I've got "Snow White Queen" from The Open Door on mental player
The only downside is that the ears are still ringing a bit. What does it say, too, when I'm looking as well at the light board operations and tsking about Amy Lee's bad posture and poor breath technique which is going to RUIN her glorious instrument if she doesn't get training ASAP? Oh, Amy Lee, don't be silly. Stand up straight and sing from your diaphragm and not from your larynx! You'll be so much happier!
