picture (im)perfect

Lesson learned in the Archenemy concert: Jim Beam and mosh pits and photography don’t mix. (Evidence here.)

Buffoons like Erap Estrada can be elected president, but an inebriated dude trapped in the middle of a seething vortex of sweaty bodies can never snap good pictures. Never!

Excuses, excuses, I know. Maybe it’s the crappy, low-tech camera I brought in the gig. Or the distraction provided by the hot-looking Goth chicks in the venue. Perhaps it’s Loren Legarda’s climate change. Hell, it could be anything. Or everything, for that matter.

Or maybe it just boils down to the simple fact that, all things considered, I’m not really cut for  photography (although Hustler magazine taught me to be more appreciative of pictures in my youth). Well, the hell with it. I went in WTC last October 20 not as a photographer anyway, but as a fan hungry for high decibels. Which was exactly what I got in great fucking abundance.

Meanwhile, there’s talk among heavy music insiders that Lamb of God is next, probably in next year’s Pulp Summer Slam. Trivium and Testament are reportedly being considered also.

Whatever. The freaks of this country can look forward to the 2010 elections, but our legion will be excited about something else.

    You must! Start planning now. They say it’s in the latest Pulp issue. Haven’t checked it out myself… 🙂
