Laundry with Harry
The 3hr drive to Houston is pretty uneventful and a visual bore-fest but an easy enough journey. I finally saw my first Longhorn which was quite exciting. I practically sent my sleeping passengers through the roof of the car when I screamed, “Look Longhorns!!!” Hey man, I never saw them before or at least ones with skin.

We got to the hotel; a Holiday Inn Express situated a mere block from the Toyota Center and complete with laundry facilities and each room equipped with microwave, fridge and coffee maker, you couldn’t ask for more.

Thank God for the laundry facilities because everything I owned was filthy. I gathered my wash and headed to the laundry room. The door had been propped open by a tiny vending machine Tide box so I kicked it out of my way and let the door slam behind me.

2 Young fella’s gave a knock at the door, no doubt the alleged door proppers, so I let them in and they manage to grumble out a “thanks”. They both start examining the contents of the dryer and as one held their industrial size Hefty bag the other proceeded to fill it with the dried clothes. As they conversed I detected a British accent and thought, hmmm, could this be…

I continued stuffing the washer with all my crap, hoping to get the most out of a $1.00 wash and then tried to tackle the obviously jammed laundry detergent vending machine.
“God Damn it you Mother F*cker,” I less then mumbled.
Finally I turned to the abandoned Tide prop box and said the the young Brit.
“is this yours,”
“Yes, but we aren’t using it, you can have it,” he replied.
“Aw, thanks, you rock!” oh God yes I did say “you rock”, ugh.
As he and the other dude left (tall blonde a bit grumpy), I thanked him again and he responded, “No worries!”
I’m sure it was more out of fear of the cursing crazy woman trying to beat up a vending machine that he gave me the detergent but it was very nice of him.

So that was my laundry encounter with Harry McVeigh, the lead singer to White Lies. The band that opened for Kings of Leon. Unfortunately I’m sure it was a bit lost on me because I know a lot of other people who would have appreciated the encounter as I don’t really follow them but I do think they are talented.

For all the people who search “how tall is Harry McVeigh” and end up on my site, I can tell you not very. I’d say somewhere between 5’6 and 5’8, but he is adorable, skinny, and has flawless skin. Much cuter in person.

The show

So one of my travel partners was able to hook us up with somewhat better seats then we had and best of all they were free. So I had posted earlier in the week our original tkts on Craigslist and was able to sell all 4 tickets. One of the girls who purchased 2 tkts was a royal pain in the ass. She showed up in major Hooker shoes and made me wait around while she called friends after the original person bailed on her. She actually called me and said,

“Hey Bitch, I’m in my car reapplying my makeup…”

“Bitch, Who you callin’ Bitch, I ain’t your Bitch-Get your ass out here and pay for these Goddamn tickets or I’ll go Bitch all over your face! You ain’t that cute.”

I didn’t actually say that but if I were a hardcore white trash scalper I imagine that is what one would say.

So we head over to our seats and the Kings pretty much deliver the usual polished performance with the added benefit of King of the Rodeo. Caleb was animated and made a comment referring to the fact they were all there just to hear Sex on Fire. He also commented on how they needed to head out to get to their next gig or else they’d play as long as we’d like. Really, how far is Dallas anyway. History has shown comments like this usually mean we are getting a shortened set list or no encore. Prepping us I would say.

Between songs there were some discussions between Nathan, Caleb and Matt, which at that point Caleb checked his watch. (Dude, did you just check your watch, come on! Seriously!) Nathan went right into Trani at that point. About one verse in Caleb stopped the music and claimed he didn’t know the words and then went into Slow Night So Long. They ended with that and came back for an encore for two songs as opposed to their usual 4. (and a tease with the first few chords of Sex on Fire by Caleb as if he was going to play it again, cocky bastard!)

All-in-all it was a good show and The Toyota Center is really impressive. They are good to their fans with 4 songs in an encore so I’m a bit jaded since I have seen them 5 times this year and know that they can really deliver an amazing show. I do think that every song was spot on though. I have no doubt the Houston fans really enjoyed the show.

So that’s it for me, there are only a few shows left on their tour and to be quite honest I think I’ve had my fill. I am looking forward to next year but hope they take a nice long rest and enjoy their time off. I hope Nate and Jessie have the wedding of their dreams and a fabulous honeymoon.

Just a message to the boys, thanks for the music, regardless of what people say about any of it, including me- you guys are talented and have a special gift and I think the music world really needs and needed something unique and original to break through-you are a band with staying power. It may seem trivial, this “worshipping” behavior of a band but in essence it goes beyond that. You’ve created a community, and personally I’ve found interest in music again that’s been lost for a very long time. You have also helped me develop a passion I didn’t know I had in writing. So I thank you for all of that.

Oh and one more thing-if this Dubai thing actually happens, I think that’s the coolest thing you could ever do! Have a blast!

Followill Dreams

August 31, 2009

Please Scroll to the bottom of this post to check of the Dream Glossary.

Lately I’ve been having dreams where one or all of the Followill’s have been involved. I’m chalking it up to all the late night blogging I’ve been doing. I thought I’d share and was hoping you too would share any of your bizarro dreams if you’ve had them (the none erotic ones, thank you very much).


DREAM: Dreamt I was watching TV with Nathan Followill and he kept changing the channel to baseball. It was VERY annoying. Then I tried to put my head on one of his guns and it shot my face off.
WHAT IT MIGHT MEAN: He’s just a regular dude but with a cooler job and I have no chance in hell.


DREAM: All the boys were at my parents house but it was more like a sorority. My Mother kept referring to Jared as the Gay one. Then Caleb came out and beat everyone up for calling Jared Gay. So basically he beat up my Mother and Matt. My Mother is 4’11” and 76 years old, that bastard! Matt had it coming though.


Dreams By Kitty

Ah, good to know am not the only one with regular visits from The Family in my dreams. Why? I think its because we are so close… *snort of laughter*
I dont know what these mean but here are few open for anyone to explain:

Dream: I am shopping in an old fashioned foodshop. As i push my cart around the shop i come to the meat counter. Serving me on the other side is Nathan in a red t-shirt and a butchers apron. He hands me what i ask for over the counter smiling. As i come to the check out line, i see that Annette Bening is the shop girl.
What it might mean: Nathan serving me “meat”…? Well… lets just say i don’t even eat meat as am a vegetarian of 16 years.

: Am in an old house that has not been lived for decades it seems. Everything is covered in dust and spider webs. I clean and Nathan is with me. He cleans too and is very good with the broom, i make a note of that. Wake up when i start cleaning the mucky windows…
What it might mean: …??…

Dream: I sat on my sofa watching telly. Caleb is with me butt nekkid watching telly too. He seems totally fine with his nudeness and suprisingly i pay very little attention to the fact either. Long dream of us just watching telly together.
What it might mean: …

Dream: Serving drinks at a party. Hand over drink to JRod and he smiles and thanks me. The drink is bright red, like juice. Matthew asks for one too. Then Caleb. I start walking around the party looking for Nathan to give him a drink too but can’t find him. Feel very anxious when i wake up before finding him.
What it might mean: …
And all that is just the start. Weird? Maybe… I dunno. x

Queen of Finland

Well i know a little bit about dreams but not much. I will tell u my theory on Nate being a butcher in private, but a house in disrepair represents your physical self or your body. Which makes sense since you were ill for so long. Nate helping you “clean” up your house may be about you getting back to being the healthy and and maybe finding a good relationship. Hence the reason why it was Nate helping you clean since you fancy him most. He just represents any person you may meet in the future as a potential partner.

I know Naked is about feeling exposed or vulnerable but that is usually when it is you. Maybe Caleb was naked because he’s a public figure and we know so much about his life yet he knows nothing about his fans private lives. Hence why you are clothed. He doesn’t know your private side.

I am definitely going to look up couch and tv watching since we both had similar dreams like that. I have no idea about the drink thing and not being able to find Nate but it kind of reminds me of the “can’t find your locker all semester” dream that everyone seems to have at some point in there lives.

Dreams by DebP

I dreamt that my hubby and I were riding around in a pickup with Nathan and one of the male cast members from One Tree Hill (and I don’t even watch that show, so no, I have no idea what character this guy plays). Anyway, we were debating the merits of ketchup and mustard. I shit you not. WEEEEIIIRDDD!!

Really, u mean that’s just not a typical day in the life of Deb P

What do Dreams Mean:

To see or dream that you are in a hospital, symbolizes your need to heal or improve your physical or mental heath. You need to get back to the flow of everyday life. Alternatively, it suggests that you are giving up control of your own body or that you are afraid of losing control of your body.

To dream that you are a doctor, suggests that there is some problem that you need to patch up or some emotional wound that you need to bandage up. You are being supportive to others.

To dream that you are operating on someone, indicates that you are facing some deep issues or dealing with your repressed thoughts.

To see a bomb in your dream, indicates that you may be going through a potentially explosive and trying situation in your waking life. The bomb could represent repressed desires and unexpressed emotions that are likely to explode or burst if not dealt with soon. It could be something within yourself, such as the desire to explode with anger over an issue that’s affecting you.

To dream that you are running away from someone, indicates an issue that you are trying to avoid. You are not taking or accepting responsibility for your actions. In particular, if you are running from an attacker or any danger, then it suggests that you are not facing and confronting your fears

To have a dream that takes place at night, represents some major setbacks and obstacles in achieving your goals. There are some issues in your life that you are facing, but are not too clear. You should put the issues aside so you can clear your head and come back to it later. Alternatively, night may be synonymous with death, rebirth, reflection, and new beginnings

To dream that you are in a market, represents some emotional of physical need that you are currently lacking in your life. You may be in need of nurturance and some fulfillment. Consider the specific items that you are shopping for. Alternatively, the market signifies frugality.

To see your aunt in your dream, represents family characteristics and values. It is a connection to your own heritage. The aunt may also represent aspects of yourself that you like or dislike. She can also be seen as a substitute mother.

To see a basketball in your dream, suggests that you need to make the first move. You also need to concentrate and be more focused in your goals.

To see a pool of water in your dream, indicates that you need to understand and deal with your emotions. You need to dive right in. Alternatively, a pool may indicate your need for cleansing. You need to wash away the past.

To dream that you are climbing up something (ladder, rope, etc.), signifies that you are trying to or you have overcome a great struggle. It also suggests that your goals are finally within reach. Climbing also means that you have risen to a level of prominence within the social or economic sphere.

To dream that you are smoking, indicates that you are trying to shield yourself and others against your emotions. You have trouble letting others in.

To see famous people in your dream, signifies an increase to your prosperity and honor.

To see the dead in your dream, forewarns that you are being influenced by negative people and are hanging around the wrong crowd. You may suffer material loss. This dream may also be a way for you to resolve your feelings with those who have passed on. If you dream of a person who has died a long time ago, then it suggests that a current situation or relationship in you life resembles the quality of that deceased person. The dream may depict how you need to let this situation or relationship die and end it.

To save a child, signifies your attempts to save a part of yourself from being destroyed. If you dream that you are separated from your children, then it symbolizes failure in some personal endeavor or a setback in some ideal you had.

To hear the sound of a loud explosion, but you did not see it, signifies that your troubles will soon be replaced with tranquility after you have overcome some small obstacle.

To dream that you are swimming underwater, suggests that you are completely submerged in your own feelings. You are forcing yourself to deal with your emotional difficulties.
