BNL at Massey Hall. It was my first time being there, and it was a pretty awesome show for the most part. We were a little bit farther back than most of the fanclub people (row I, so 10 or so back, I would assume), and we got in a little bit late because the merch stand didn't accept credit cards (wtf) and we had to go get cash from an ATM across the way... so we were mostly antisocial. We waved at a couple of you guys who were there, but that was about it. Pretty good setlist (other people will post the actual thing in a day or so at the latest -- the ones that stick in my mind as more unusual were Tonight is the Night and In the Car/I'll Be That Girl), everyone seemed to be in a pretty good mood, amusing banter, etc.

HOWEVER.

To the numerous and/or extremely vocal people sitting in the area behind us who were yelling and/or whispering loudly for people to sit down and clapping whenever they happened to (to the point where it may be audible on the bootleg when Ed starts "Snowman" because a lot of people sat down at that point):
YOU ARE ON THE GODDAMNED FLOOR AT A CONCERT BY A ROCK BAND. ONE THAT IS FROM THE CITY YOU ARE IN. WHILE THERE ARE SEATS PROVIDED, THE PATRONS IN FRONT OF YOU ARE NOT OBLIGATED TO USE THEM. IF YOU WANT TO SIT AND YOU WANT TO ENSURE YOU ARE ABLE TO SEE NO MATTER WHAT THE PEOPLE IN FRONT OF YOU DO, PURCHASE SEATS IN THE PROVIDED BALCONIES (PLURAL!), WHICH ARE SLOPED. WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU JESUS FUCKING CHRIST.

Ahem.

Okay, this? Is crazy and stupid. (More info here and here.) I think I'm a bit too rar at the moment to talk about it coherently though, but I think most of you will get why.

Ugh.

You know, I sometimes think that maybe I need to reevaluate my opinions on the Clintons. I mean, my politics have changed since they were in the White House, maybe it's just growing up in Texas that biased me against them. But every single time I think that, I turn around and see something like this:
In the words of that Clinton adviser: "If you have a social need, you're with Hillary. If you want Obama to be your imaginary hip black friend and you're young and you have no social needs, then he's cool."

Yeah, Hillary, your campaign's really working to bring about change in the political process there. Good grief.
