We went to see the Video Games Live concert the other day. It was a school night, but we thought the opportunity was too good to pass up. We were able to give Son some exposure to live orchestral music without having him complain of extreme boredom. His one-word review ("Awesome") was vindication of our Machiavellian trickery.

We saw this concert at the same venue where we saw Weird Al Yankovic perform a few years ago. I enjoyed the Weird Al concert, but while we were there, I noticed that many in the audience had questionable hygiene practices. It turns out that the combination of loud noises, strobe lights, and stinky people make me nauseous. It appears that many of those same people chose to attend the Video Games Live concert.

I think I'd attend more concerts if they were quieter, and if people could sit on La-Z-Boy recliners spaced a couple of feet apart from each other. And if they had shuttle service.

New product idea: A Febreze-like product that you can inconspicuously spray on stinky people to reduce their intrusion into your space at public events. Remember "Gee, Your Hair Smells Terrific?"
