Maybe...Manson isn't so bad. I haven't been to too many concerts...NIN/Bowie, Bush-No Doubt-Goo Goo Dolls, Smashing Pumpkins, Metallica-KoRn-Kid Rock-Powerman 5000-System Of A Down. I have always been too busy or broke.

I would love to see Tori Amos in concert though.

[edit] Forgot...I saw Dope & Primer 55.
Haaa Korn! Nice. Haven't listened to Korn in AGES. Hmmm trying to remember the concerts I've been to...Michael Jackson was my first in 1997 in Germany. Manson, Radiohead, Arcade Fire, Metallica, Elton John, Rolling Stones, AC/DC, Bjork, Bob Dylan, Billy Idol, Janet Jackson, Tina Turner, BB King, Madonna (who was surprisingly awesome during the Drowned World Tour right before she started sucking), Oasis, Moby, No Doubt, The Verve, Portishead, Rob Zombie and Gaga more recently. Sadly, as big of a Bowie fan as I am and have been for over a decade, I never got to see him perform. I did meet him briefly but back in 2004 I was working in Japan for 3 months and missed the Vancouver show. I'm still kicking myself over that since it's unlikely he'll perform again since his heart surgery

Re: My Janeway costume

I was really upset about missing Ozzfest back in 2001...I missed out on Slipknot & Mudvayne. Guys from the band I was in all got tickets & didn't get me one and I missed out. They did get our CD played in between bands...too bad I missed it.

I know it was a few subjects back, firecrackerrrr, but I just had to come by and say how wonderful your costume is, and what a great picture!

Re: My Janeway costume

My bad. I derailed this.

The outfit is great!

I haven't sewed anything since HS. I wouldn't be able to make anything.

Re: My Janeway costume

Going back to an earlier tangent, firecrackerrrr, I think you'd also look great as Milla Jovovich's Alice, from Resident Evil (red dress, boots, guns) and Leeloo from The Fifth Element (orange hair!).

I might be slighty obsessed by Milla Jovovich. I even sat through Joan of Arc

No worries I am too. Arghh actually before I did my Janeway costume I was THIS close to making the Leeloo orange suspenders costume but I hate being cold on Halloween

Re: My Janeway costume

Then perhaps next year you should make yourself a Zira costume?

Great pics firecrackerrrr!

As far as music goes...I listen to Tori Amos...if not her then death metal, black metal & nu metal...I don't care for pop and there is only a handful of "new" songs I might listen to.
That's pretty much me. I like some metal and industrial rock as well. But when I'm all alone, give me Bowie, Zeppelin, MJ and Pink Floyd any day. )
Ah, the classics.

The last concert I attended was an acoustic jazz concert on Catalina Island. No bras were thrown unfortunately but we did get to sail there from San Diego and much red wine was consumed...

Anyone hear of Craig Chaquico? He used to play for Jefferson Starship and can still riff...

Re: My Janeway costume

In her 70s my grammy brought spare underwear with her to throw at Tom Jones in concert. Apparently these things are encouraged.

God help us all.

That is horrible. When I saw No Doubt some one through a lighter at Gwen Stefani...she stopped in the middle of the song to yell at the person who threw it...she called this group of girls in the front row "bitches".

Re: My Janeway costume

That's what I don't get about women.

You throw things at them, and they're offended.

Re: My Janeway costume

Just back on topic for a second. So I've decided to go to this massive Halloween party - 3000 people have RSVP'd. Hardly doubt 20% of those will get in (we got connections mwahahahah ) I went to see the hairstylist today and she said there's no way I can get the bun o' steel. My hair is normally thick and I have a tonnnn of it but I thinned it out quite a bit cause it's a pain in the ass to maintain when it's that big. But in this case it would've helped out. So the bun is out of question.

Now I have the option to do one of these two things. Please feel free to laugh at the ridiculousness of the second option and call me an idiot:

1. Year of Hell Janeway. Face scar and all. But I so don't want to stain the uniform with too much blood.

2. Mirror Universe Janeway. OK so we didn't get to see Mirror Janeway really unless you count Latent Image. So I thought about adding a few ridiculous things to my costume such as:

a: wearing black gloves
b: putting a black leather corset (already own it) over the uniform
c: having season 4 Janeway hair but gelled back
d: adding a couple of battle scars cause Janeway is badass in all the universes.

Keep in mind this IS Halloween so improvisation is welcome, usually....but I don't want to ~insult~ her Highness in any way, shape or form. I thought if I go with Year of Hell Janeway people would think I'm just a dead red shirt cause people are stupid like that I'll still most likely go with Option 1 because I can't for the life of me add a corset on top of a brilliant starfleet uniform.
