Sprain

I sprained my finger! For the first time in my life, I sprained something. I've never broke or sprained anything in my life. In all my years of playing sports, you'd thing something like that would've happened already. Anyway, it all happened tossing a football around. I always played basketball, or volleyball or tennis, so I should have known with football, that I would kill my clean accident record. Anyway, the sun was in my eyes and the ball was coming toward me. Gaining momentum, instead of me catching it, it smashed into my left middle finger. It was painful, but the rest of the day didn't really bother me until the next morning when it was really really swollen. I got it checked out, nothing broken. You could imagine how comical I look wearing a splint on my middle finger. I only take it off to type (I have it off right now). It's a lot better and should improve by next week.

Graham Colton, The Last Goodnight & Colbie Caillat

It's been a little while since I've been at a concert, so I found one that fit my budget: FREE. It was outdoors in City Place. Opening acts were pretty good. Graham Colton started off, and he was a 1 man band. His songs were all about love and love lost. They were really enjoyable. (However, when I downloaded his mp3's I was slightly disappointed as I grew fond of the acoustic rawness that I experienced live). He's someone worth looking into.


I was right next to a speaker, so the sound is kind of bad...

The Last Goodnight was pretty good too. They sort of are like Maroon 5 with an edge. I enjoyed hearing their main single "Pictures of You" among other songs.

Lastly, Colbie Caillat came on. You could SO tell this was their biggest concert yet. She looked nervous, like she was really concentrating on singing. Got the "deer in headlights" thing going on, but later she warmed up a bit. Her songs are actually really good, at first I thought they were boring but they grew on me. Bubbly is NOT my favorite. Her voice was impecable, her outfit was cute...but I just wish she smiled more and enjoyed herself a bit more. That sort of thing is contageous. I love really engaging preformers. She's new, so I'll give her a break. But her music is quality, she's going to get big if she isn't already.

Best part about this free concert besides the price, is that a friend gave me a helpful tip about bringing lawn chairs. I did, and I didn't have people breathing down my neck. However, this one girl tried to climb on my chair and I shot her the dirtiest look and asked what the heck she thought she was doing. Something about the amount of people in concerts that always makes me wanna fight. I don't know what it is. People are always crossing the line somehow...
