JOY

I know I need excavation.

There's something surreal in seeing a song played live. I have found that if it's a song I have never heard before and seeing it live makes me more inclined to like the album version. If it is a song that I have loved for years and years and finally got to see it played live, the buzz I get from seeing it played for the first time; standing there seeing what I have loved come to life makes the connection I feel to the song become that much more intense.

Watching the B-52's play Mesopotamia last night was outer-worldly.
