Another Day, Another Concert.

Last night, my husband and I went to another Birthday Massacre concert. This time, they were co-headlining with Black Veil Brides and had guests Aural Vampire and Dommin. It started with Aural Vampire, a sweet/cute/adorable "band" from Japan. It consisted of a VERY cute girl, and what I assume was a guy who wore a black mask. The eyes of the mask would flash red lights and he had text scrolling across his forehead. It was amusing.

The second band to play was Dommin. They were a gothic band from California, and I felt like they were being a little pretentious, but we ended up buying their CD anyway. Also, before their song, "Closure" they asked if any of us wanted to be in their next music video, people cheered, and then they informed us that we were all going to be anyway. Gregg and I were standing somewhere in the back, and I laughed. I was so excited to be in my second music video ever, but then realized that my standing in the back probably meant that you wouldn't see me in that video either. SO, yay. I'm not going to be found in the second music video I've ever been in either.

The Birthday Massacre played third and it was fun. I got to stand closer this time, and of course, being a white girl in New Mexico, I was able to see over most of the people at the concert anyway. That is definitely one thing New Mexico has going for it, I'm always taller than most of the other people in the room. Anyway, during their first song, Owen, their keyboardist, and I locked eyes for a moment and it was pretty fantastic, until it got awkward, so I looked away. I had to. Even though he's one of the very few short guys that I find attractive. The Birthday Massacre was fun, as always, but it was fairly short.

The last band to play was one that I had never heard before, but heard of. When they all came out on stage, I couldn't believe how incredibly perfectly beautiful they all were. One in particular was the most beautiful man I had ever seen in my entire life. And I mean PRETTY, not like handsome or that I'd do that guy, like that guy is SUPER pretty! The prettiest thing in the world. I can't imagine ever seeing anything that was prettier than that guy. Not even a gigantic sparkling diamond on the forehead of a Unicorn with rainbow colored hair!!!!

We actually ended up leaving early because Gregg got annoyed with me and how fascinated I was by this guy, who I later found out goes by the name of Ashley Purdy.

But the concert overall was fun. I would do it again. Except for the fight Gregg and I had after it was over.

Here are photos of the bands and one of Ashley Purdy. The most beautiful thing ever.

Vegetarians against PETA

I know there are other blogs out there who claim the same as this does, that a lot of vegetarians are against PETA. Here's what I want you to do, vegetarian or not, pro PETA or not, go to a search engine and turn on "image" search. Type in PETA. I'm going to guess that about 90% of the pictures you're seeing are of women with little to no clothing.

Besides the fact that searching PETA is practically like searching porn, if you ARE a vegetarian, going to PETA's website may make you want to scoop your eyeballs out. Your heart might drop and you might feel like puking. How is it logical to shove that in an already vegetarian's face? Sure, if you're trying to convince others to be vegetarian. It's so disgusting, it may work! But honestly...no more PETA for me. Even if it's a contest to meet Sir Paul McCartney. I wouldn't go to their website to do it.

Another complaint I have about being a vegetarian is -- If you're not a vegetarian, and you don't want to be, that's fine. I don't really care. And don't apologize to me for eating animals. That's your business. I would prefer that you didn't for multiple reasons i.e. the environment, and the sake of so many animals who deserve to have long happy lives, but if you're not down with that, great.

I've done reports on being vegetarian and I've talked to people about being vegetarian and they will say "I'm sorry, I love meat too much." I really don't care.

I know that I can't stop people from telling me things and people can't read my mind, so most of them don't know, but I guess I just wanted to get that out there to those of you who read this and might feel compelled to tell me you're sorry and make excuses to ME why you don't want to or can't be vegetarian.

So...it's out there. Thanks for letting it be.

If you WANT to be vegetarian though, I commend you. It takes some effort and requires a lot of compassion. There are many sites other than PETA that will help you on your journey with less in-your-face animal slaughter.

Some of these sites:
