Now,I'm not sure if you've been paying attention or not,
but up till now I rarely (if I have ever) used any expletive words
on any of the posting published so far... right?
I honestly never felt the need up till now. But I GOTTA use some
to describe my experience at the recent Bilal (feat. Choklate) concert
I just attended at the Highland Ballroom. Besides the frigid and whipping winds, there was no line to speak of getting in, and there
was room up front to stand to catch full view of the acts (Choklate was mid-set when i arrived). So, so far the night was more than perfect. Till I start positioning myself to "shoot", that's when some extremely pale and older Caucasian woman started doing "Morse code" on my shoulder to scold me (loudly at that) about taking flicks. I'm like...you fucking serious? Mind you she came at me from all the way back stage AND there were like 20 some odd folks w/ camera phones and real ones clicking away right next to me and shit! I took two more and "peace signed" her away. After counting to ten and taking a deep breath, I doused my flames with a cool Corona and focused on the show.
Till Bilal took the stage i chilled with the pics. Boom...Ya man Bilal gets on, and and some chick in the crowd (who looked like she still owned cassettes and shit) wants to have a public convo with him. Yelling dumb ass questions to him, I'm like "It's a fucking concert NOT an interview! Bitch stay focused!" Fucking rude as shit right?
Anyway, half way into Bilal's set a few folks panned out so I moved up closer to get some "main act"shots, cause basically that's what I came to do. Don't get me wrong, I love Bilal (no homo, his music) but if I can't get any shots to blog then...then what the fuck? Back to the story, I'm deep center into the crowd, I whip it out (my camera that is) and go into paparazzi mode. Then here comes "Ms. Crabtree" AGAIN harassing me! Give me a fucking break yo! Not YOU again! One, how'd you even find me, and two, come on...Is it personal now? You squeezed past a hun'ned folks to get to ME about pictures lady? Pictures? Anyway, these are the ones I caught. Be thankful. I shoulda took one of her ass right?
BTW the show was FUCKING AWESOME!
