Memphis in May With Midgets and Giants and wasted mutha fuckas!

Hey Chickadees and Dudesters!! Sorry I haven't blogged in a while. So here's the updates: went to Beale Street Music Festival in Memphis TN. I saw Neon Trees, Mutemath, 30 Seconds To Mars (I fell in love with them!!!), Colby Caliat, Puddle of Mudd, Sore Eyes, Boys Like Girls(caught a guitar pic the base player threw at me! :D), 5 Finger Death Punch, and Chevelle. I went with my two cousins, Megan and Morgan, their friend, Hannah, and my Aunt Net. We got up at about nine every morning, got there at maybe ten, and stood up until midnight or one every morning. After dinner and showers it was two or three when we got to bed. We had so much fun. Tyler Glenn, the lead singer of Neon Trees, looked straight at me and Hannah (we were in the front) :D he's a cutie pie! Mutemath definitely brought the crowd to life. It was totally wild. When 30 Seconds To Mars was about to come on, a radio station reporter person came on stage and said "Hey you guys! Who's ready to see 30 Seconds To Mars?" Everyone screamed, "I heard that Jared Leto, the lead singer, is what you ladies might call 'a piece of ass'" and everyone screamed again. Well, for the Beale Street Music Festival, Jared Leto was sporting a pink mhawk. Before the concert, I wasn't so sure how it would look, but when he came on stage I immediately fell in love with him. You guys, he said fuck so many times, I can't even express to you how often he said it. HA! Well, he climbed up one of those things that hold the roof onto the stage I guess (It was an outside concert) and was like "You guys promise your going to catch me if I jump? You fucking promise? You have to promise you will catch me!" and he sang for a little while, then climbed down and said "Sorry guys! I promised I would be a good boy tonight!" Well, last they played "Kings and Queens" from their new album, and Jared invited people up on stage. After 30STM Limp Bizkit was scheduled to play, but we heard it was going to be pretty bad so we got a security guard to get us out. The next day my Aunt Net heard from this one man who's wife works for the festival that people left the Limp Bizkit show bloody, so we were all glad we left early. Saturday morning Colby Calait played and we saw her and she played a new song she wrote last summer, and one of her roadies helped her sing a song. Then we kind of walked around for a while just listening to different bands(There were four stages). Puddle of Mudd was coming up next so I went to go watch them, and Wes, the lead singer, was totally wasted. Well, he was signing autographs after the show at one of the merchant booth so Megan literally drug me to the closest booth. He came up and I swear I was a foot away from him, and he was about to sit down when someone yelled, "Hey Wes, I have a perfect spot for you!" So he followed him, then he completely disappeared. We went to both sides of the festival ground about four times, and I'll promise you guys, it's not a short walk. We couldn't find him, and Alice In Chains was about to come on after them, so we went to the stage they were going to play at and waited a little while and then the intercom came on and told everyone that the event was canceled for the remainder of the night because Memphis had a tornado warning. Well, you may have seen it on the news, but someone we knew saw it and said the street was just filled with people and it looked like nobody was moving, but people, I promise you we were moving as fast as we could. We stressed out for a couple of hours while waiting for our taxi driver to show up. Sunday the sun came out, the wind was blowing, but it didn't rain at all. Sore eyes played first, and the lead singer, I don't know his name, was cute and the band was really good. Then Boys Like Girls came on, and I caught a guitar pic and a water bottle they threw, that had splashed all over me ha ha! Then five finger death punch was coming on after them, and they said it was going to be worse than Limp Bizkit, and we got scared for a little while, but then decided that we should stay because it was still going to be daylight when they would be over. Well, it wasn't even as bad as 30 STM! The lead singer splashed water on all of us! It was hilarious! Then he smiled and winked at Megan. Then, me and Hannah started making hearts with our hands at the guitar player, see, this was so funny because this band is metal! Well, he stopped playing for a second looked at us, made an awkward face, then made a heart with his hands too! Well, after they went off, Chevelle was scheduled to go on next but, we were all wearing new rain boots so our feet were killing us so we got the security guard to get us out again then went and sat down to listen. 3 Doors Down was going to play after Chevelle, but they couldn't get out of Nashville because of flooding. See, it might not be as funny until you consider all of our highs. Megan and Morgan are 4'9", I'm 5'8" and Hannah is 5'10" I'm guessing. Seeing Megan drag me through that horrible crowd like lightening was just hilarious. We were trying to get by this one guy and he looked at Megan and said "Hey do you need a bodyguard?" and she reached back and grabbed my arm and he said "Oh okay! you already have one!ha!" When we were leaving Saturday night we passed this one guy who was wasted and he looked at Morgan and goes, "Oh my God! a midget!" Then a police officer asked if they were like twelve and they said "No we are fifteen" and he was like "Oh okay! your tall in here! Tall in here!" and he was patting on his chest where his heart was. We all cracked up and kept walking. Well, that was my weekend. I haven't blogged because I was trying to catch up on my sleep. Well, I hope your weekend was just as fun and exciting as mine!
