Here are my reviews from two of Nez’s shows last week:
Aaaaah um so like well.
Im writing on an ipod so this will look horrible ok
I met mike and stuff and things
One of yall was there too but i was to scared to say hello. Your sweater was awesome and nezzy. Another young girl talked to my mom in the hall and i would guess youre on tumblr too. And there was another girl who looked really familiar but i dont know if she was who i thought she was.
Anyway this is what happened.
I guess we said hello or something and maybe shook hands i dont know maybe i just gave him my records
"Whats your name"
“Are you from around here”
“No im from canada”
And he did that face—you all know that face—the wide eyes one. He asked if i came just for the concert or something else and i said mostly for the concert but we also went to a hockey game.
"Do you want me to sign these"
“Do you want me to personalize it”
“NNY or NNIE”
“Yes. Um NNY”
Then i remembered i wanted to say something about the show so i said thank you and it was great and he sounded kind of like surprised? And he said thank you it was real fun to play. Then he gets to my monkees record and says
"Oh youve got a grand slam"
“Do you want me to personalize it like all the others did”
“Do you want a picture”
So then the girl took the picture and gave me the camera back and then i was like
"And um i heard you give really good hugs so like um…"
And he opened his arms and we hugged and he was like
"Where did you hear that"
“Well its kind of all over the internet”
And he said something that i cant remember but i feel like it was maybe something like
"Well it would be, wouldnt it"
And maybe he laughed but i cant remember so ill just pretend that he did so i can say that i made mike laugh
And then I said
"It was good thank you"
I don’t really get how people faint when they meet famous people. I faint when I get blood taken or get a needle.
So I probably won’t faint unless he decides to stick something in me.
In other adventures of misheard lyrics…. In Look Out Here Comes Tomorrow…. the line where Davy is describing Sandra as having long hair and… well I’ve always heard it as big girls. However, my brain always told me it was pig tails. Which… isn’t that what the line actually…
Mary, oh what a sweet girl, lips like strawberry pie… = girl next door
Sondra, long hair and beat girl… = beatnik chick, rebellious
Decisions, decisions, Davy.
OMG I thought it was “long hair in big curls.”
I don’t think anyone knows for sure what he’s actually singing there. I’ve also heard “bead girl”, meaning hippie.
Because he doesn’t.
Was trying to find the video where they used “Goin’ Down” to celebrate the Breaking Bad finale tonight, but found this instead. It’s short, it’s cute — read it, and don’t do meth.
Peter Noone, David Cassidy, and Micky Dolenz at Casino Rama in Orillia, Ontario on September 21, 2013
Micky was Micky; he put on a good show, played the songs you’d expect, and did the jokes you’d expect (“Well, I don’t think there are any kids here, because… this is a casino… but you can tell your kids I did this song long before Shrek.”).
Peter Noone was hilarious! Lots of jokes and impressions, and of course all the Herman’s Hermits hits. “Ever since I was little kid, growing up in Manchester, I dreamed that one day, I would play… at Casino Rama.”
David Cassidy was not my bag. He was really negative about some of the songs, calling one “pathetic” and “horrible”, and he mentioned several times Peter and Micky’s “pattern” of doing the same show every night, and how he could never do that. Hopefully it was just an off day for him.
Also, in the pictures above, you can see Wayne Avers, who toured with The Monkees last year, on the left. Vance Brescia, who wrote “That Was Then, This Is Now” was also part of the band, as was Dave Robicheau, from Davy’s band.
I came home last night and saw a bunch of people posting about getting passes. It sounded like the form had started working again later that night, and some more people got through. I hadn’t received an email, so I figured I was out of luck.
Then I get an email this morning at 6 am EST saying I got passes to two shows! (They’re up early/late at Videoranch, I see.)
So there’s still hope if you haven’t got one yet! I’ve replied to them saying that I want to return one of the passes, so if they’re okay with that, there should still be at least one more pass available for one of the MA shows.
I had previously emailed them yesterday morning using the Contact Us form on the Videoranch site, so the confirmation was just a reply to that email. I’m not sure what kind of confirmation other people are getting. Are they sending a form letter? Or are people just assuming that the “Videoranch.Com Customer Receipt/Purchase Confirmation” receipt email is confirmation?
I will redo your entire website in exchange for a Conversation Reception pass.
Or for free. That works too.
