Avril LavigneSo the Avril Lavigne concert was great! She was at the DTE Music Theatre (Pine Knob) and I mangaged to get some great seats (row E). It was one of the better concerts I’ve seen in a while. All the screaming enthusiastic fans reallly help to get you going. I don’t know how tall she is, but she can’t be much over 4’10“ (150 cm) and she’s constantly bopping around all over the stage. She literally skipped around in circles during the parts when she didn’t sing. She played all the songs I wanted and I think she played every other song I knew. She played for over two hours! Some just singing, some guitar, piano and the drums. It was really great.


I don’t have her old stuff except for some live cuts and a few odd singles (from the iTunes store). For the encore she did Smells Like Teen Spirt and Hey Ya! (at least I think that’s what it’s called). My photos aren’t so great but click on the thumbnail for the best one and this is my second best one (the others are worse). She’s much cuter in person than I thought (she usually looks mean), the photos don’t do her justice. If you were there and got some better ones can I get a copy…?

AvrillavignetmSo, as you know, I’ve had Avril Lavigne in my head lately. Especially: Fall to Pieces, Sk8er Boi, My Happy Ending and I Always Get What I Want (mostly the first one). So she’s in town (Detroit-ish) tonight Pine Knob (DTE) so I picked up some tix and now she’ll be in my eyes and my ears!

I’m in Row L so my photos wont be very good, so if anyone gets anything better let me know where you post them or send a few my way. Thanks!

And I don’t wanna fall to pieces
I just want to sit and stare at you
I don’t want to talk about it
And I don’t want a conversation
I just want to cry in front of you

Fall To Pieces – Avril Lavigne

So these darn lyrics keep running through my head (they play this part of the song in the iTunes preview so listen if you have it). I don’t know why they keep resonating in my head and my heart lately. I can certainly relate to the feelings in general, but nothing in particular currenlty, which is why I’m confused that they keep coming up. And it’s just this part of the chorus that sticks, until I looked the lyrics up I never even noticed that the next line was “Cuz I’m in Love With you” although it was perfectly clear to me that there was some deep love that was friendship or romance.


It makes me sad but but in a sort of good way. In the way that crying can be a catharsis and purge out the emotional stuff that made you cry in the first place.

I just wanted to check the spelling of catharsis and the definitions were interesting. Actually the Catharsis Wikipedia entry is pretty interesting too.

Did you notice how I jumped from talking about my emotions to the defintion of the word and the history of it? (You did? I thought I might just slip that one by you.)

This is a great album by the way I think I might be turning into an Avril Fan (now that she’s “not so angry any more”).
