Live and almost 8
Posted: Saturday, 02 July 2005
Alrighty Button lol no idea who you are, but isn't this blogging thing fab?! Saturday night in the pub with Live 8 was good wasn't it? All evening loadsa folk were saying "Ohh Paul McCartney was amazing!" and I'm like "Yuh right, FFS! look at his hair!" etc etc then he played old Beatles stuff at the end like 'Helter Skelter' and yup, gotta hand it to the guy, he had the crowd in the palm of his hand. The Kaiser Chiefs and Green Day were as close to anything I'd like on the day (but i'm a fussy wee so and so!) as for the rest of those young whipper-snappers...yeah like you said they're gone in 2 minutes! Live Aid v Live 8...hmm...you might be right about there being more edge first time..I guess it's for slightly different reasons this time...larger scale, more future orientated. with Live Aid it was blindingly obvious what was going on and the sense of urgency was there for all to see, and we all could do something immediately, this time...it's very political and it may be difficult for a lot of people to see how their participation could change things. Who knows! I really hope that this mass awareness and in turn mass consciousness does affect things for the better, it just takes one thought followed by one positive action to get the ball rolling, so fingers crossed eh? A Gigha gambling emporium...aye lets propose to build a Caesars Palace up the road LOL! Mind you wi my addictive personality it might spell trouble! Are you sure it's my elbows that need added power?! lol Power to your elbow and more Button!
