Jimmy saw Patti Cake$. Apparently, he didn’t like it.

“You’ve never seen a more formulaic movie.”

Talking concert ticket prices.

$100 for Kesha tickets?!

Palladium sucks as a venue?

Jimmy saw Tony Hadley last week at the Rose in Pasadena. Not a huge draw apparently. It was an add-on date?

He talks about the odd mix of crowd at the show.

20 – Jimmy shows off a picture and tells a story about it.

60 y.o. gay Asian man in the front row. He was in the front row “Acting out lyrics.”

Matt talks about someone near the fire who took some great pictures.

Janet is here! She thinks she is on the phone. Jimmy is yes anding AND negating.

Jimmy needs some input on something but cannot remember at all what he was going to ask us for help on.

Jimmy resets! Janet was in Atlanta.

Janet wonders about the camera situation.

“Don’t kink the hose! The sound won’t go through.”

We lost someone from some band.

Matt talks about the games, including using a rock in a sling shot game, and a donkey kong game where Danielle was Donkey Kong throwing stuffed animals at the kids.

Everyone had fun!

Janet does her Homer Simpson impression, Jimmy thinks they were fine with what they had.

Jimmy tries his impression. He hopes it’s closer to good this time. Janet tries again, it sounds right but her voice is to high pitched!
