If you don’t know this about me already, I love Duran Duran. I’ve written post after post after post after post like a teenaged twit.
I’m to the point where nothing I write will be original. I’ve said it all. And then some. I mean, how many times can I say, on ONE BLOG, how much I love these guys. Well…I don’t know THEM personally to really love THEM, per se. I love their music and my fantasy adaptation of them. I mean gawsh…since 1981…7th grade (OMG, I’m OLD).
Listen, I wish I could report that I FINALLY met them and I threw up on their shoes or something although, I don’t know if I’d admit that I threw up, I’d probably make up a fancy story about how they were all so enamored by me and my fabulous personality that they insisted on taking me out for dinner just so they could listen to me ramble on and on incessantly…or something along those lines.
Well, I gots nuthin.
Except for the fact that, once again, I’m doing what I did last year around this time. I’m going on a Duran Duran concert binge…2 Duran Duran concerts within 3 days in 2 different states other than Michigan. Because they keep forgetting to add Michigan to their tour and I don’t understand what’s with them. I should slap all of them upside their heads. But that would mean I’d actually be standing right near them, which is doubtfully ever gonna happen. I guess they lucked out, eh? I mean, who wants throw up on their shoe anyways. (by the way, I don’t throw up guys so, if you are ever lucky enough to meet me, you’ll just have to see me blush but not barf. You’re welcome)
I just realized…6 Duran Duran concerts in the span of 1 1/2 years. OMG…I need therapy. Seriously. This is a sickness. Someone…do something.
Duran Duran’s social media group (which…that will be a post VERY SOON because I have things to say about this)…is doing the #DuranLive thing again. And, I’m being sent to Pittsburgh! To see Duran Duran. Where I’ll have great seats. Me in the seats, not them. They’ll be on stage. I’ll be swooning, taking pics, swooning, tweeting and swooning. Not to mention…I’ll be swooning.
This just in: The concert is at Stage AE which is general admission. And how are those good seats when there are no seats?! UGH. Oh well, I’m still wearing cute shoes.
That’s happening on August 26th. Yes, I’m excited.
Then…I come home.
Then…I leave again on the 29th to head to Illinois…Ravinia festival with my friend Monica. There we have AWFUL seats. Sigh. But, it’ll be fun. And I’m sure Monica and I will come up with another crazy post. That concert, I’m NOT being sent to by the Duran Social people. That one is all me. Well, basically so is the Pittsburgh show but, like I said, I have another post coming.
So, watch for me, rockdrool to Tweet, FB, and swoon on August 26th AND August 29th.
disclosure: I was asked to write a pre-concert post, tweet and do a post-concert post and in return, I received a pair of tickets for the Duran Duran concert in Pittsburgh. I know. If it was any other group, I’d show them my butt and tell them where to kiss. But…it’s Duran Duran. And I louvres them. So, I do as I’m asked to do. Which is this blog post. So, I hope you enjoy it because there’ll be another one in a week or so.
