Worms! Pictures! Terrible Blog Titles!  
Hello to all my faithful livejournal friends! Of whom there are.. well, none right at the moment (edit: one now! Hi! :P), but hey, if you have no friends, they can't be unfaithful, right? Or something like that.

Anyway, to the point of this entry: The Arrogant Worms! Here's the story -- many years ago my dad told me about this funny little song he'd heard on the radio -- something or other about a cow. He quoted a few lines, I agreed it was amusing, and then for the most part I forgot about it.

Fast forward a number of years, when the wonderful thing called high speed internet meant that I could explore that lovely site called youtube to my heart's desire. I remembered that song about the cow -- I had to investigate! A quick search led me to it, and I listened and enjoyed.

Fast forward another number of years, interspersed with occasional little Worm-sprees, to this past Christmas -- whilst discussing Wolfe Island (for some reason) with a friend, I naturally felt the urge to listen to the Wolfe Island Ferry song. One thing led to another, and due to it being Christmas and me having some spare time on my hands, I ended up having a bit of a Worms fest, listening to most of their music over the course of a few days. I was hooked, and lamented the fact that they did not seem to be playing in Kingston any time soon! That is, until I had a look at their recently-updated tour page! This was my chance -- I dragged in a couple of friends (who were surprisingly easy to convince, considering both only knew the Worms by name) and secured us some lovely second row seats! 

SO.... to the point (for real this time! maybe...) -- January passed, with me counting down the days, and finally February the 5th arrived! Despite it being rather snowy outside, we made it to Duncan McArthur hall, and --- well, it was fabulous! Since I have already written far more than is probably necessary in my little narrative, I'll just write some point form highlights:

- powerpoint presentations
- static man! 
- Mike tying his shoe (he's getting good at the velcro ones!)
- and Mike going and sitting in the audience (though I can't remember when or why he did this.. anyone wanna help me out? :P)
- "water!" -- the guy who was chosen was only a few seats down from me, so I was a little worried for a second in case Mike was pointing at me... but he wasn't. Phew! (I'm shy :P) 
- lingering around in my seat for the intermission, observing: a) someone fixing Chris's microphone b) "mystery trumpet man" going backstage c) Mike going backstage
- the brass duet!
- Trevor's solo in Carfull of Pain -- every bit as amazing as the album and live bait version!
- Uncle Lou -- seeing Trevor act it out brought this song to a whole new level for me :P
and last but certainly not least...
- John and Steve!! Definitely a highlight amongst the highlights -- and John sounded exactly the same doing Don't Go into Politics as he did on the album, which impressed me.

Anyway, enough writing -- now some pictures!  (oh, and credit for most of these goes to my friend -- aside from the first two, I think she took them all. I kind of prefer to just watch concerts, but.. she seemed happy to take photos, so whatever works!)

(oh, and they're also all from the second set, because.. well, I dunno really :P)

YAY YOU POSTED!!!!!

* The PICTURES OMG! Amazing. I saw the one on Facebook but it's soooo good to see the rest.

* Trevor's chest hair freaks me out every single time. I just was not expecting that from him!

* I think we must have been sitting really near each other! I was in the front row off to the left, more in front of Chris.

* Mike running into the audience was during the opening to Rippy, but I can't remember why either. I think that's a new thing he's doing; I think he has a new wireless setup for his guitar or something, because he did it in Hamilton in December too (because Chris was kind of jokingly insulting him)

* Did you hear Steve when he picked up Chris' bass, and saw the pics of Chris' twins on the back? "Uh...you wanna explain yourself here, Chris?" And then Trevor and John were like, "No, no, you have to play the other side!" OMG, I was just about wetting myself from laughing. (Sidenote: How freaking ADORABLE is it that Chris has pictures of his kids on his bass?)

* Uncle Lou...that song makes me want to take a long, scalding hot shower D:. Not only the chest hair thing...Trevor is just WAY too good at acting skeezy. :P

Thank you for this review!! It makes me want to work more on mine, but alas I have a huge paper due on Friday that I really need to work on :P. But I will say that on Thursday I will have a Worm-related post to make...we'll just leave it at that....XD

Glad you like them! Yeah, I just put the one up (mostly out of laziness, but also because I didn't feel like clogging up the Facebook page with 50 bajillion mostly-blurry pictures :P) but.. might as well make the rest available somewhere!

And I think we must have been! I was in the second row in pretty well the middle, so... yeah! If you happened to see a group of two girls and a guy (yeah, vague description I know :P) sitting around there, then.. that was probably us :P
(are you the one who uploaded a couple of videos to youtube from the concert, by the way? Because I was watching those and thinking how close it was to where I was!)

Okay, thanks, I was thinking it might have been Rippy, but I wasn't sure!

YES! For the whole.. bass thing. I'd forgotten about that -- so good! It didn't seem like all that many people noticed that going on, though... or at least that was the impression I got, I could just be imagining things :P Either that or they didn't find it that funny, but I find that hard to believe, because I thought it was hilarious. Who knows! (and gah, yes, cutest thing ever! .. well, I suppose there are a lot of cute things in the world, but.. still, it's definitely up there :P)

Trevor IS good at playing Uncle Lou... it's a little frightening, but in an oddly enjoyable way :P

And it was my pleasure! Well, no hurry, school must come first I suppose! (unfortunately :P)
