Running Down a Dream [09 Nov 2007|07:12pm]

[ mood | curious ]

So, I finally got a chance to sit down and watch the film "Running Down a Dream".
I only made it through one disc because it is too late to watch the other disc. Even though I really want to.
My neighbors are already mad about the first two hours because it is not close-captioned and I'm hard of hearing :(
I'm not complaining and I'll watch the other disc tomorrow earlier in the day, but it is kind of frustrating that I have to stop watching because the concert clips are louder than the talking and I can't even hear some of the interviews.
So, now the waiting is the hardest part.... ;)

Is anyone else looking forward to this as much as I am? No concert this year, so I guess this'll have to do...

hopefully this doesn't get me flamed [09 Jun 2007|01:06am]

i've been a tom petty fan for about, god, 20 years now. one thing i've always looked up to him for was his stance against screwing his fans for money. this was most obvious in 1981 when his record label wanted his upcoming album to be one of the first records sold for $9 or something. so he threatened to name the album $8.45 or whatever in protest of the idea that his fans should pay more for his album for no real reason other than to pad the pockets of his record label.

this is why i am completely mystified about this highway companion rerelease when the disc has only been out a year. so now, for $20 you can get 4 new songs (two of which are demos, and two of which were obviously not deemed strong enough to be put on the initial pressing) and two postcards and a leatherbound disc (which even strikes me odd since tom is a vegetarian i think)


so yeah, does anyone else find this whole thing kind of tacky?

I went to the concert!! [26 Aug 2006|02:29am]

Wow...I didn't know there was a Tom Petty community here. Tom Petty is one of the few artists that doesn't have any songs that I can't stand to listen to.

I'm from the Pittsburgh area and went to Tom Petty's concert last week. It was AWESOME!!! He sounded incredible and really got the crowd into it. He was also very gracious and kept thanking the crowd over and over again. If anyone is going to an upcoming concert, you'll LOVE IT.

I just heard that this was probably his last tour due to knee problems. I'm sooo sad and I hope its not true.

Darien Lake 8/15 [25 Jul 2006|08:57pm]

Selling two tickets for the 8/15 show at Darien Lake, NY. Opening act is Allman Brothers. I paid $32.50 plus an 8.50 Convenience Charge for each, but willing to go for less!

Leave a comment if you're interested, and how much you'd be willing to pay

Tom responds to RHCP "controversy" [01 Jul 2006|06:21pm]

all15minutefame
Does "Dani California" sound too much like "Mary Jane's Last Dance"? Tom Petty tells Rolling Stone he doesn't give a shit:

Have you heard the Red Hot Chili Peppers song "Dani California" yet, because obviously it sounds a lot like "Mary Jane's Last Dance."
Yes, I have. Everyone everywhere is stopping me. The truth is, I seriously doubt that there is any negative intent there. And a lot of rock & roll songs sound alike. Ask Chuck Berry. The Strokes took "American Girl" [for their song "Last Nite"], and I saw an interview with them where they actually admitted it. That made me laugh out loud. I was like, "OK, good for you." It doesn't bother me.

There have been news reports that you were going to sue the Chili Peppers.
If someone took my song note for note and stole it maliciously, then maybe. But I don't believe in lawsuits much. I think there are enough frivolous lawsuits in this country without people fighting over pop songs.

Pics from Petty Concert in NOVA [22 Jun 2006|10:44pm]

Finally we have net at home! Here are the pics from the Tom Petty concert, featuring Stevie Nicks, at the Nissan Pavilion in NOVA.

This was a great chance for me to play with my camera in the outside, in different lighting and from a farther distance. I think I worked it pretty well.

This is a picture of the moon rising before the concert began:

bonnaroo ticket for sale [11 Jun 2006|11:50am]

rose3is
This is an awesome 4 day festival in Manchester, TN. It's about an hour southeast of Nashville. Tom Petty is one of the headliners! If you haven't heard of this festival, check out there website at http://bonnaroo.com/2006/. I bet you will find out that several other artists you love are playing (Phil Lesh, Elvis Costello, Radiohead, etc). Or, you can just go on the night Tom Petty is performing. He is on Friday night from 8:30 to midnight.
I was positive my friend could go this year, so I bought her a ticket and the next day found out she couldn't make it. The ticket came to $205 after adding in the cost to ship it to me, but if anyone is interested in taking it off my hands email me at alarsen@centenary.edu. I'll let you have it for $150 and I'll cover the price of shipping. I just hate to see a ticket go to waste and I do want to get part of the money back so I can afford to buy gas to get there!
