So as you all know (or most of ye), Ellie, Nan along with our comrade Kat went to the Common Rotation Concert at World Cafe Live in Philly D last Friday. Suffice to say it was quite possibly the coolest day EVAR. The concert was so amazing - honestly, their CDs and mp3s cannot even begin to compare with how they sound live. The difference is staggering, so if you've given them a listen and like what you hear, go to one of their concerts because you will be blown away.
Anyway, after the amazingness, we all went down and bought tons o' merchandise from our pal Jordan. We then were able to snag a pic with the band and we left briefly because it was uber crowded and we were kind of in everyone else's way. We decided to delve back in, however, because we didn't want to end on a saddish note (Adam was a bit distant). We went back in armed with out made I ♥ CRZ sign. I approached Adam and said something along the lines of, "This is going to sound really geeky, but my friends and I have this podcast and we would really appreciate it if you could sign this piece of paper for us." Adam then took the sign. Nan was like, "It's a Buffy podcast." Adam then said, "What does CRZ stand for?" Ellie said, of course, "Cool, refreshing zima." I'm unsure if he got the reference - I mean, he was of course in that episode, but you never know how much these people actually remember about what they're in since they're not all obsessive about it like we are. ANYWAY...he signed it "AAAAAAAAH!" And then he put "-> that's for refreshment", and signed it. I was completely SHOCKED because as you know we say "Ahh" in our little intro thing, so it was very coincidental/ironic/A SIGN!? He was uber nice about it, and after me saying thank you like a BAJILLION times (looking like an idiot, of course, I was like shaking my ass off), we left. I was like, "Come back to Philly!" We ran away, and Ellie, as we left, screamed SO LOUD, it was hilar. Anyway, we'll probably tell this story again in our next podcast, but I thought you all should know.
Ellie, Nan, feel free to elaborate on this post if you so desire. And oh! Piccys!
The Not-So Evil-Trio and Common Rotation
Enjoy! (there are more to come, later...)
I'll update again once I know more news about when the next podcast is. Due to upcoming weeks of the tech variety, time is going to be slim - at least for Nan and me, since we're very involved in our school's production of Into the Woods. But hopefully we'll be able to find time soon, because I really want to chat about Season 6, as I haven't had a good Buffy chat in a long time.
Oh, and to those people out there who are like "ZOMG LIEK ANGEL IS SO MUCH BETTER THAN BUFFY": you're whack! :O
