to bugg or not to bugg

Saturday was beautiful and a welcome break from the frigid, yet somehow burning cold. It was 60 degrees. I didn't wear a jacket, which was a big middle finger to Puxatawny Phil. Because of this fleeting window of warmth, I decided not to be a hermit and to go out and do stuff...stuff being Jake Bugg. [Tangent: Wait. Weird. Gross. He's barely legal. Clearly,  I wasn't 'doing' Jake Bugg. I was seeing him perform (music..that is).]

Because my fella always seems to know these things, he suggested that we go to The Pour House to see Jake Bugg do a short set in the afternoon put on by Lightning 100. [Tangent: I always enjoy an afternoon short set. It really lines up with my sensible old lady inclinations. The older I get, the more days notice I need to hype myself up for anything that has a showtime at later than 8:30. I cannot be alone on this. I love an occasional late night, but I need a few days notice to get in the right mindset to make it happen.] Jamie has been a fan of Bugg since he first heard of him and I am just impressed that he is so young and so talented and doesn't involve choreography or heart hands into his performance style. He's got a gritty badass voice and kind of looks like the lost Gallagher brother. [Tangent: That's an Oasis reference for any high schooler that has somehow stumbled onto this page.] I'm sure if I were 15, he'd have prime real estate on my clear front binder. [Tangent: I'm sure his young fans have some clever name. Buggies. Bugg_bites. LadyBuggs. I don't know. If they don't have a title, they should.]

here's a pic of him singing Lightning Bolt. Jamie took this. I took a couple but there was a big bald head blocking most of the action.
Even though he only played a handful of songs, it was a packed house and a fun way to spend the afternoon. [Tangent: It was also adorable to see fans young and old win Ryman tickets and records. There was one little boy who practically lost his ever lovin' mind when they called his name and said he won an album. He then proceeded to stare intently at it for the next hour. I like that kid.] As we were leaving we saw Mr. Bugg hanging by a car and surrounded by a short line of fans. Jamie and I both hesitated and then walked to my car.

When we got in the car, we both concluded that we wanted to go say hi and tell him good show, but felt awkward about it. Meeting an artist is weird enough, and additionally,  I have never had that interaction with an artist who was much younger than me. We knew whatever escaped our lips would make us sound like grandparents. "You're such a talent." "Keep up the good work, champ!" "Good show, sport." [Tangent: Because he's British...and British people say 'sport', right?] True there was a huge range of ages there, but I just knew no matter what I said, my word vomit would make me feel 700 years old. "You make some great music, kid."

  9. In filing the case, in United States District Court, lawyers for the plaintiffs argued that the company had been unfair and deceptive
    in deploying users' names and photos in marketing devoid of consent.
    In its defense, Facebook took a press-freedom strategy, saying it did not need to have consent since sponsored stories
    have been really “news,” due to the fact all Facebook
    users were public figures to their buddies. Specifics of the tentative settlement had been not disclosed.

  12. And nowadays,so many people around the world are interested to keep copies of music
    videos on their personal computers. It is less costly to use any of the above service as compared to watching TV
    programs via TV providers. I myself love watching movies online,
    and this is the best way to find them.
