Gene Kelly

Every now and then I’ll head over to YouTube and take a look at some Gene Kelly videos and I tend to come away with this thought: why can’t we have more of this in cinema today instead of what we are currently subjected to?

Great music. Great talent. Great charisma. Great fun.

Entertainment through and through.

Coldplay in Concert

Coldplay In Concert

For our fifth anniversary, I purchased two tickets to see Coldplay perform at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minnesota. Lucky enough, my lovely wife decided to take me along for the experience.

I’m still trying to process the whole thing, but to label it an “experience” would be a gross understatement. The whole show was simply amazing and truly beyond any single event I have ever witnessed. It hit all of your senses and just didn’t let up the whole time.

This was the first major concert I had ever attended in my life. Before this I had attended some at our county fair and a number of orchestral and choral concerts over the years, but this is such a different beast I really have a hard time describing it.

The two of us are still talking about it and I have pretty much every song from the concert running through my head.

What an awesome date!
