It seems as though my social networking is building a spiderweb of lies. Okay, they're not lies...but it's a hell of a lot to keep up with! Twitter started as an innocent curiosity and a social push to join the "newest" site that everyone else was on. At first I didn't get it. Who cares to hear what I'm doing? Oooh I'm eating a sandwich. Now I'm opening the door. Just saw a dog. BOOOORING.
But it's not like that! Oh, why can't you see that it's so much more than that?! I have made Twitter friends (high fives to all of you), I get informed of breaking news stories literally as they're happening. I hear about all the best events going on around town and most importantly, upcoming concerts with my favourite artists. There is always word of the latest sales, promotions, job opportunities, and obviously there's a ton of funny quotes...140 characters or less! Now to add to the list of reasons why Twitter is currently rocking my world, I simply retweeted a contest that The Commodore's Twitter account had posted and BAM I have a direct message 30 minutes later that I've won. I WON. Good Lord, I don't think I've won anything in my life. No, that's a lie (the web continues to build...) I once won second place in an Art Knapps colouring contest. I got meself a nice Beauty and the Beast poster, thank you very much!
The tickets were to a Jazz Festival show at The Commodore including The Heavy, Kid Koala, and The Slew. I will admit to you that I didn't know much about The Heavy except for a few liked songs and of course the famous Kia commercial (scroll down for the YouTube vid) but they were great live!! I will 100% be purchasing their cds and dancing the night away to them!
