concert noises and shooting photos...quincy catches the red eye.....

Last night me, Ryan, Aparna, and Aparna Friend went to see Feist and Grizzly Bear in concert at the 9:30 Club in DC. The show was hella good. I would say that Grizzly Bear's music is more abstract and impressive, however, I listen to Feists album more. Don't ask me to offer you any logic concerning my bias for Feist, as it doesn't make sense to me either. Don't get me wrong! Feist is beyond incredible, but I found myself more in awe of the musician ship and performance given by Grizzly Bear. Feist was much more engaging during her set, though. Ryan leaned in and said, "I'll bet she'd be annoying to hang out with." I thought she was mildly funny in a cute sort of way.
Aparna mentioned she was feeling sick, so I tried to cheer her up with the joke that my dad told me the other day when I was upset (see the blog before this one for the joke). I don't know if it worked, but I'm confident it did for at least a little bit. No one can be sad after hearing that joke.
I'm not going to talk about the concert anymore because most of you probably don't know who these people are.
Anyhoo, yesterday started out MUY terrible. "MUY" is the Spanish word for "very". Did you know I was bilingual? Well, I'm not. Shut up.
Anywhoo, yesterday started out muy terrible, but it got muy bueno. "BUENO" is the Spanish word for "good".
Anywhoo, I got some good music news yesterday. A couple of calls from some big wigs in California = a gentler, happier Q.Ledbetter. Lets hope things work out as they could.
So, after the concert Ryan and I parted ways with Aparna and Aparna Friend and headed back to my crib. I did an impromptu photo shoot for Ryan before we left for the concert and it was time to edit the photos. In my opinion they're the best headshot photos I had taken for anyone. I tried out some new lighting tactics and they came out amazing. I'm not trying to toot my own horn. I could be delusional, but I'm just sayin'....I think they were muy bueno. The editing session took up until past 1am and I didn't get to bed until 2:30pm because I took a shower and ate a sandwich. Needless to say, I'm sleepy and a bit scatter brained right now.
NOTE: I talk in jibberish when I'm sleepy.
I've never seen the old Star Wars movies. I've only seen two of the most recent Star Wars movies.
I messed up twice at work yesterday. Whenever I mess up there are at least 4 people who come up to my desk to tell me about it. Its EXACTLY like the movie, Office Space. Please save me.
I found out yet ANOTHER one of my friends has given up on their dreams. He makes 3 friends in the past week. Whats wrong with people?!?! Don't give up! Things get hard, but don't quit. Quitters quit! Are you a quitter?! The reason why the averages of people who "make it" is so low is because everyone quits. If none of us quit at our dreams, then we'd get to where we're supposed to be.
