I enjoy working the gig life because I get paid to travel, meet people, make friends, and see how people work. I can steal the ideas I like, shed the ideas I dislike, and adapt to more circumstances quicker. If I’m away from “Zeal,” my home office, for long hours on one gig, then I can figure out ways to make the time I do have here more productive, especially as I renovate the space.
red11ned: Computer froze out of nowhere.
SamSt0rm: no worries jane. i was just about to call you but i know you still have a sore throat goin
red11ned: It’s clearing up. I must’ve caught it at the show last week.
SamSt0rm: thats good to here! they really werent that grate huh?
red11ned: It’s too bad. They’ve been great every other time I’ve seen them. They just seemed tired. I’d probably see them again…
Attending concerts is therapeutic for me. When all goes well, I’m permanently motivated! Even when I must invent a new rating variable to express my contempt toward a performance, it’s usually worth the inconvenience of leaving my comfort zone to hang out with old friends, meet new acquaintances, or encounter interesting side stories. Seeing a leashed dog at a show was weird and that it wasn’t obviously a service or therapy dog was weirder still…

This review compilation format is working out better than I thought! Considering the sheer volume of photos I take at concerts (366 photos, totalling 1.02GB), it’s easy just to upload my favorite photos from each band to Twitter. Instagram has a terrible, mobile-only upload format, so I infrequently post there. It’s just too bad I took too many gambles on shows with only a few actually being worth attending. Guess you gotta give everything a go…

WANNA SEE MY MICRO REVIEWS OF THIS RECENT BATCH OF CONCERTS? KEEP ON READING!
The BodyCraft VR500 rowing machine is acceptable. Pushing it to its limit constantly – rowing at its maximum “32” resistance for 5 minute sets, over 50 times or for roughly 4 hours, for months, and always with good form to not cause erroneous wear – I’ve found demotivating shortcuts: avoidably bent handlebar and broken plastic bits. There’s no way I’d pay $1600 for this! Maybe $50, tops, and it certainly wouldn’t be my first choice if I needed to replace my Concept2. Why?
Rating: ★★★☆☆ [3/5]
Just as my writing focus shifted away from thrifting, I’ve lost some interest in long-form nonfiction narration under the guise of concert reviews. They’ll still happen occasionally. Over the past month, I’ve written little more than thinking up an introduction to a hypothetical Metallica review: “Without exaggeration, I’ve listened to Symphony and Metallica while writing over 50% of the material I’ve uploaded here. Did they disappoint?” So let’s briefly cover this backlogged batch of 5 concert reviews.
Average Rating: ★★★☆☆ [3/5] [53 stars out of a 100 possible star rating]

WANNA CHECK OUT THIS SET OF CONCERT REVIEW EXPERIMENTS? KEEP ON READING!
We rushed through the last two episodes of this acceptable yet underwhelming first season of the Castlevania animated series. Still, the loose adaption of the videogames isn’t all that bad. It’s just there were some avoidable hindrances preventing the show from being truly great. The poorly-drawn foot pictured below summarizes the majority opinion, however, it’s not all pitfalls.
- Agent Bon’s Series Rating: 2.5/5.0
- Collector’s Rating: Not Bad
- Zombiepaper’s Series Rating: ★★☆☆☆ [2/5]
- There will be spoilers uncensored below.
