Second of all, there's no doubt in my mind that if a DVD of this Roxy show becomes avaliable in the near future, you'll be one of the first on the list t'download it. I doubt you'll be complaining then. So they want to tape a show; we should be thankful Das Hips are so cool, allowing dedicated fans t'do this. I don't see much difference in setting up a tripod and taping a show, and waving yer arms frantically throughout the show. Both create a slight block in yer view, but really, who gives a shit? Move five feet over. This guy is watching the show through a little screen so others who weren't fortunate enough t'be there can watch the show through big screens later on.

Whoever that taper was, rock on.


Don't get me wrong, I have no problem with anybody who wants to videotape the show. I do admit to being a bit mystified as to why anybody would go to the trouble of getting close to the stage only to watch the show on a tiny screen, but I don't begrudge anybody the opportunity if that's how they wish to spend the show. However, it was more than a slight block -- the camera was parked square in front of my face. I did move over when I got the chance, but given that people were squeezed in pretty tightly where I was standing it took awhile. I wasn't about to shove anybody out of the way and park myself in front of them (or at least if I was it was going to be the guy with the camera). At least a camera on a tripod would have been easy to avoid before the show began. And for that matter, why should I have to move? Why not the guy with the camera? If you want good video the balcony is the place to be at the Roxy anyway.

Whatever. This reminds me of the endless debates about flag-waving that used to go on in the old usenet forum. The bottom line for me is that I get irritated when somebody blocks my view, period. I'm just as entitled to enjoy the show as anybody else. Your not going to change your opinion and I'm not going to change mine, so that's the last I'll say about it.

As for downloading the video, I have zero interest in it. Really. Videotaped concerts are about as interesting to me as the lint in my belly button. If there's some quality audio I'll download that, but I've seen many an audiotaper at a show and have yet to be irritated by one.

Huh. I moved to Atlanta about a week after that show and I've been wishing I'd seen it for the last 10+ years, but I didn't know that had happened. Guess I don't feel bad about missing it now. Besides, I had already seen them two other times on that tour (and there were fights at both, though one was a big festival with lots of bands and things getting set on fire). They played Variety on the IBE tour without incident.

Cleaning up my hard drives and I found what appears to be a video of show, in its entirety. I've got 24 Gigs of data ready for whomever wants it to create a DVD for fans. Any takers?
