I have to say, I was coaxed into going to this concert since I wasn't too interested in seeing JM, nor do I listen to his music. The draw was definately having the opportunity to meet my fellow writers. But at the end of the day, I gotta say that JM looked freakin' hot! Totally shattered my non-existant expectations. His singing was also quite a bit better than I would have thought. The tunes were catchy and he has a nice voice. Though I must admit the second performance that evening was not quite as good as the first. At one point while he was singing he sucked in his cheeks and did the Spike tongue-curl thing while he sang the lyrics "you make me want to be BAD." Seriously, mini-O right there. Oh God...
*Ahem* Anyway, after he was through and we were heading out to dinner, we ran into Niamh, addie_logan, and imbloodyenglish. I think Lostboy just about had a heart-attack he was so star struck. We all headed back out to Applebee's, with lostboy thrown into SpikeKat's trunk and had some dinner. LB also almost got kicked out. See his journal for more details. When we arrived back at the club for the evening show, my darling beta Eowyn315 finally arrived with two of her peeps from Philly after an 8 hour drive!! There were some serious delays, but we were all glad to see her in one piece and I know she was glad to see James' pieces, raowr!
More watching and talking ensued, and after the show sevvy_odrove LB and myself, plus three other random girls back to the train. This time, LB was stretched across our laps in the back seats due to space limitations. It also turns out that one of the girls we went back with was a self-proclaimed dominatrix - awesome, I live for stuff like that.
There are more pictures, but photobucket is being a testy bitch and these are all the important ones anyway...Enjoy!
