Bon Jovi in the Park

That is all there is too it. Some guy casually singing Livin’ on a Prayer when the whole park gets together and sings along with him. Pretty wholesome, pretty ace.

Timelapse Clouds and Aurora

I like time lapses, I like clouds, I like space stuff, I like photography.  The only way to make the above video better is to put Bruce Willis in and change the music to Bon Jovi.

The above being known, I do think that that’s a pretty cool phenomena.  I would like to see them one day. More so on the Auroras then the noctilucent clouds, but I wouldn’t complain if I got to see them both.

Unfortunately, I don’t have any plans to go far north any time soon, probably not for a few years anyway.  Too bad.

Google Glass Stadium

A few weeks ago Bon Jovi played some shows at Met Life Stadium.  I went to one of them, (sadly not the one above).  On Saturday show a kind person offered the use of their Google Glass explorer kit.

I’ve been loosely following the Google Glass phenomenon for awhile now, but until now I haven’t actually watched a video from one.  The quality of it is pretty damn good I’d say.  Some basic issues with focusing on the bright stage lights, but that’s to be expected.  The audio is not great, but they were on stage at a concert, nothing is gonna sound good, trust me.

All in all, I’d have to say this has potential, I like it.  Also, I like Bon Jovi.

Bon Jovi @ The New Meadowlands Arena

I told you I was going to break in the new theme in awesome style.  Now some of you might think that would be with a stumble post.  You’re wrong.  Still others would guess something having to do with Hitler, Nazis, and/or World War II.  Good guess, but still wrong.

No, I am breaking in this new theme by showing you all the experience of seeing Bon Jovi play at The New Meadowlands Arena.  I will have you know that on my list of favorite musical groups, Bon Jovi is number one.  So anything I say about them is biased, you don’t have to listen to me, or read this, so I don’t care really.

Anyway, the story begins months ago, when I went to go see Bon Jovi play a special secret show in the parking lot of TNMS.  It got me in the mood to buy tickets for their grand opening of it.  Which I did.  Fastforward to last week.  I went to go see it.  Having never been inside the old stadium, I can’t comment on the differences between the two, but I can say that the new one is nice, extra specially nice.  Extra specially expensive too (food and parking wise anyway (if I’m paying $200 to see a concert, parking should be fucking included in my ticket)).

Anyway, I’m no sound Nazi, (and chris refused to come), so you’ll have to take my word on how it sounded.  I was in section 128, which is slightly off direct center of the stage.  I was able to hear them play fine.   Seeing them was different.  If it wasn’t for the giant screens to the sides, and behind the stage, I would not have seen them.  (this was not the Central Park show where I was 50 feet from the stage).  But regardless, it was fun.

The 4 giant score board screens, and the ring display around the upper deck of the stadium was not used at all.  For me that wasn’t a big deal, but for most of the people in the bleachers and off to the sides, I’m sure they were very upset that they couldn’t see as well.  But whatever, my seats were good, my view was fine.

The show itself was good, but they could have played some more faster more crowed pleasing songs.  As far as I can remember, nothing from Bounce was played.  Which sucked cause I love that album.  But that’s fine, cause they played It’s My Life, and Born to Be My Baby, my two favorites.

I can’t remember the entire setlist, and apparently, it changed alot from night to night.  Which is fine, I like it that way.  I do remember they closed with Keep the Faith, which I was able to record for you all.  Sorry it’s alittle shaky, it’s a good song, and I was moving around alot.

I also got Something for The Pain, which they played while standing down on the inner circle part of their stage. This video is better cause I was sitting down while recording it, and there’s far less to move around to in it. (I do enjoy the song plenty though)

Well, I lied, they used those score board displays for the encore, which was 3 songs long – Always, Wanted, Dead or Alive, and Livin’ on a Prayer.

By far, the best part of the show was when they left the stage the first time.  The entire crowd (me included) began to sing Livin’ on a Prayer to entice them back (they hadn’t played that song yet either).  We kept the melody good, and it was pretty fun.  Then they came on, and showed us how it’s really done.

I took some pretty nice pictures too, you should look at them.

Bon Jovi @ Giants Stadium!

IMG_0064 Well it has been an eventful past few days.  Tuesday morning I found out that 95.5 WPLJ was having a private concert with Bon Jovi.  I love Bon Jovi.  So I spent the next 2 days listening non stop trying to win.  At one point, I had 4 phones being used all at once.  I managed to make it through 3 times.  Being caller 22, 20, and 23, all out of 25.  Then at 2:30AM this morning, Oct. 22, 2009, the day of the concert, I was caller 25.

It was awesome.

It was only a 40 minute show, which kind of sucked (it took just as long for me to get to Giants Stadium), but, they played good songs.  They played 6 songs, but I only remember 5 of them, I feel dumb.

  1. Who Says You Can’t Go Home?
  2. We Weren’t Born To Follow
  3. It’s My Life
  4. Wanted Dead or Alive
  5. Livin’ On a Prayer

They missed out on some of my favorites, mostly anything from Bounce, and “Born To Be My Baby”, but it was good.  It was free, and a great way to spend an otherwise empty Thursday.  Also, the weather was beautiful.  75 degrees, in the end of October, in New York!  That’s crazy (and has nothing to do with global warming)

Anyway, here are some pictures I took of the show, check them out!

Bon Jovi Live at Central Park

bon jovi

You may or may not have heard that Bon Jovi did a free concert at Central Park yesterday.  Well, I was there, and it was pretty damn awesome!  Two of us from Deadly Computer were there, and one of my friends came too.  We got there at 1:30pm, and then waited till 8pm for the show to start.  We didn’t even get into the park till a little after 3pm.  When we got there, we kinda pissed off the two girls sitting behind us, but after a few minutes we made up, and became friends.  Which was good because for 5 hours you need some people to talk to.

One of their names was Laura, and I don’t think I ever got the name of the other one.  Oh well.  I told her to come visit the site, hopefully she will.  Laura if you do, please post a comment I’d love to hear from you.

Now, as for the concert the only bad thing about it was the 10pm curfew, which was part of the agreement with NYC.  Because of that, they didn’t play nearly as many songs as I was hoping for.  But from what I remember, they did these songs in some order which i forgot: Runaway, It’s My Life, Who Says You Can’t Go Home, Have A Nice Day, I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead, Whole Lot of Leavin’, We Got it Going On, Bad Medicine, Born To Be My Baby, Wanted Dead or Alive and probably some others i forgot.

Whoever was in charge of the video was doing a very, very awesome job at it.  The directing was amazing, beautiful, and just a work of art.  The screen was super high res (from where we were anyway), and beautiful.  The lights behind the stage were choreographed great too.  I wish I remember what song had the Hearts behind it, because that was good, but i don’t sorry.

They opened with Livin’ on a Prayer, and closed with I Love This Town.  I managed to take many, many photos, but lots came out blurry, and the rest were mostly the same.  I’ve collected the 40 or so of my favorites in this album.

Here are some of my favorite pictures from that group below:
