Big Bang @ Prudential Center, 12/9/12

As promised on tumblr. This is very long, so I apologize in advance. ^^ BTW, I’m sitting in a cafe in New Brunswick next to someone using “Fantastic Baby” as a ringtone, and it turns out she was also at the show on Friday. Small world! The New York Times also reviewed the concert, and they were pretty complimentary.

Anyway, like I said on tumblr, we really did luck out with our seats: one section over, and we’d have stayed up on the mezzanine. Instead we were moved to new seats really close to the stage – and more than that, really close to the *side* of the stage, where the stage lights spilled over onto the audience, so the performers could see us almost as well as we could see them. Maybe that’s why the guys in Big Bang seemed to spend so much time directly in front of us?? Or did I imagine that??? Considering Prudential Center holds 14,000 people, I really wasn’t expecting to feel like I was seen by each member of Big Bang, but it really did feel that way. Crazy!


Okay, over 2200 words on this is enough, I think. :p

In other news, I’m now an official columnist at The Hooded Utilitarian – you can find my stuff under “Subdee” in the Contributors->Columnists pull down menu. It’s making me a little bit nervous since the level of the writing on that site is really high. So far I don’t have a theme for my column – anyone want to suggest things to write about? I thought about continuing to write about “zeitgeist” things but I’d run out of topics I actually know something about pretty quickly, I think. Speaking of the zeitgeist, though, I have an article up on Gangnam Style, also two on Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure and one on Homestuck – and now I am working on one about Saiunkoku Monotagari. It’s like a disease, this instinct to write about alternative-mainstream things with huge cult followings. ^^ I might do Five Star Stories next, not sure – I’d, um, have to read it first. Er…
