So my long weekend started out in the city of brotherly love: Philadelphia. Dan, a few friends and myself all head over there for the Live 8 concert that took place on Saturday. It was a great Saturday!! All the performers were great, including the ones we didn't really care for like Tobey Keiths. Who is that guy anyway?

I think that by far my favorite performances were Dave Matthews Band and Linkin Park, not counting of course the Coldplay and Green Day performances that the Live 8 people were nice enough to show on the video screens as they were going on in London and Berlin. Though I think that here we got a great line up, it would have been cool to have gone to the one in London. That lineup kicked ass... Though I would trade Annie Lenox for Alicia Keys any day of the week...
So many ankles!!
Supossedly there were somewhere around the neighborhood of a million people standing in Logan Square. It looked like a massive sea of people. Overall, I was really impressed over the fact that everything was so well organized. It's hard to keep so many people happy, and yet, everyone was just chilling. At one point during the day, I sat down to keep the sun from hitting me so directly (I am so sunburnt!) and I noticed at all the ankles that were everywhere. All different kinds of ankles decorated by different tattooes and ankle bracelets. That was very cool.
Somewhat symbolic even...imagine, "a million people each from a different walk of life"...hehehe
Oh and I really had to comment on this: I thought we were done with the whole "we hate the French" thing... Freedom fries??? Come on now!
