I saw the most awesome concert - EVER - last night! Mike took me to see NIN at the Metra last night as a late b-day/ anniversary gift. It was absolutely AMAZING. Hands down the best concert I have ever been to. And I have to say, having bought tickets through, I didn't have to wait in line for anything - we were totally treated like VIP's. I love the way everything was handled.

The only complaint I have is that a LOT of the people who attended this concert were complete jerks. The opening act was "The Bug," and the singer happened to be a Jamaican immigrant to London, singing in America. So, being the closed minded retards we are up here, they pulled out the total white supremacist attitudes and booed The Bug. Yeah. REALLY grown up, right? And when Trent tried to play some of the songs off of his "Ghost's" album, they started yelling, "We want our money back!" I thought it was common sense to see what the content of a concert is before buying tickets, but apparently some idiots don't use that thought process.... Oh well! It still rocked HARD! Even being stuck in a mosh pit was worth it to see Trent 20 feet away...

These are a few pics from someones cell phone - he happened to be right behind me taking pics, so you can see the back of my and Mike's heads... and one from another fan. This was after we stepped away from the pot smoking retard in the mosh pit, so we were a little further back in these - but still amazing! (If you have never been to a NIN show, you should check it out on youtube - it is an awesome experience, and the light show alone was worth the money...)

Also, It was Adrian's birthday, so we went to "The Reef," a water park in Billings. It to was amazing! Adrian got to bring Robby along with him, and Abby came to. We let them play and swim for 4 hours before we took them to Toys R Us to pick out Adrian's B-day gift. Man did we all have a fun and busy day!

Hi, I found this via your Ravelry profile! I was wondering where you're from, and one link led to another, and here I find another giant NIN fan! Woo hoo! Did you see Rez won the Oscar for his score for The Social Network?

You had commented in the Tools thread on Ravelry "So confused" so I stopped in to see if someone had helped you...saw the avatar which I *thought* was Bruce Willis but couldn't be sure, so I checked out your profile and saw your blog listings, saw "NIN!" and here I am.

Anyway - Hi!
