That was one of the first albums I ever bought. It's kind of burned into my brain. :D

Wow, Cuse, you are right - it must have been inspired by that. That's kind of funny, because my friend who was with me is a HUGE Beastie Boys fan, since back in the day ;) and he totally would have recognized it, if he had seen it, which he didn't, due to his low profile on the edges of the crowd. Me, I was all up in Jem's grill. :)

OK, so while we're all waiting for news from Red Rocks, here are some pictures from Portland to pass the time. :) Generally I do not post pictures of myself on the internet, but you all seem like nice folks so what the heck. For the record I am MUCH better looking in real life. :wink:

Image
Here's me and Murray! Hee hee! (Not really, but WOW, huh??)
Image
Image
Image
This is the picture Nigel liked. :)
Image
Image
It's blurry but I like it.
Image
I swear, I took pictures of Bret. They just all came out blurry. He was farther away. Yeah, that's my excuse. ;)
Image
So here's me and Jemaine. Yeah that's right, I said me and Jemaine. :D Note the insanely happy expression on my face, and the somewhat blase expression on Jemaine's.
Image
Here is me and Nigel. He was so sweet. I asked him for a picture and he just put his arm right around me in such a friendly way. He was awesome. :D

I hope this isn't too many pictures. If it is I can take some down. If it's not enough, I have some more. ;)

:clap: Not Enough. Awesome!!

The pic of Nigel is great. The one of Jemaine below Nigel's fave? I like everything about it. His face is...wooo. His hair is blue. :) His neck and jawline....perfect. His hands.....love how he's fretting or chording or whatever you call it. I love his hands, no matter that some say they're weird or large....I love them. Wow, that sounds obsessive....i can't help it

You look gorgeous, mock. Yet another WTFer who doesn't think enough of her looks. :tsk: You're lovely...and yes, the happiness is shininig thru!

So who was the guy dressed like Murray? He actually reminds me of how Simon Pegg looked in Shaun of the Dead. (that's a compliment, btw.)

Yes...more pics!

I don't think that's obsessive Laura, I really enjoy looking at the top of his head for some reason. Like when he's looking down. Just tell yourself it's the artist in you enjoying detail. Obsessive? pffft! Not here! hehehe

More pics! I second what Laura said, and you have a great smile!

"Hey Ya'll, I'm destroying your city!" And the Bret and Jemaine angels looked on in approval.

Great pics MB 8) The one with Jemaine; you look fabu ( and he is not bad either). Keep in mind it was kinda late for a weeknight and that might account for the blasé look.

MB - I think he was posing again...looking for the more 'serious' look...? I don't see it as him looking blase at all :D

Though - I tend to see what I want to see :lol:

Those pics are great mockingbird! And I think Jem looks GREAT in that pic with you - as do YOU!! :D I think he was probably posing...that's what I would guess anyways.

Awesome Bird, I am so so so happy you got to meet them! Great pictures all around... Jemaine doesn't look blase at all! Just pleasant, and of course beautiful... which is all we can really ask for, no?

Great pictures of the show too! The one of Nigel is great, as is his hat.
