Tech N9ne Is Awesome, but Florida Is Whack!



So, life here in the FL is tough. Its hard enough that I barely get enough hours to pay for my bills. I also live out in the middle pf nowhere. In Polk City there are only old people, and the people who are my age are either rude and self centered or about as intelligent as a nail in my coffin. Living here is maddening, I am ready to get out.

In the meantime I am going to write up a little story. After failed college parties, and failed movie excursions. What it came too was that the only way I was going to see anything was too go by myself. So, I planned on going to the Tech N9ne show in Orlando. So a few weeks go by and the day before yesterday I am talking about the concert to some people I know, and one girl says she really would like to go. I'm like hell yea, you can go with me, because I don't even really know my way around, it will be fun. She says that after she gets off work that we could go... bla bla. So the next day comes... She don't have money... Her ride don't know... She can call em... I'm like "whatever *****, I'm going anyway, I'll have fun alone."

So, I am kinda erked, but only because I am tired of not being able to chill with anyone. I wasn't even attracted to the girl, and I'm sure she was thinking that I was. That's what she gets for thinking... Ok, I am on my way now, I got to the gas station to get gas, and try to get money back to pay for parking when i get there. The teller says, GTFO we don't do money back. I couldn't use the ATM because I don't know my pin. So, I get back on the road and go to the venue anyway, in hopes that it is only 5 dollars, because that is all the cash I had.

So, I take the wrong exit because it wasn't labeled. I'm rolling through ghetto town, with prosties on the street. What do I do? Stop at 7-Eleven and talk to the local Idian store owner, lol. I get in and the line was filled with people buying lottery after lottery ticket. So I ask one of the gentlemen in line, and to my luck that statement is true, and he helps me with the best directions I could have asked for.

Bamm, I get there... Zing, the parking is at the venue, and is only 5 bucks... Kapow, I get in line and wait... Zoom, I get in the door its not sold out... OMGWTF YOU DON"T ACCEPT CREDIT OR DEBIT, BUT YOUR MACHINE HAS A SCANNER??? Ohhh, use the ATM that I can't use because it is in requirement of my pin, great... So, I try and fail three times to get it to work. The woman at the door acts like a ****, and I leave. I immediately start heckling the people in line to buy me a ticket saying "I'll buy you a T-Shirt inside." NOPE, wrong no help there.

I make my happy little way back to the parking lot where my car was. I see the parking lot attendant there, and I give it one last try. I tell him the WHOLE deal. The credit cards, me only having this one event to have fun, 6 months of sitting around twiddling my thumbs because nobody wants to be my friend, my favorite artist, everything. He feels for me, and radios his boss, who says he will come out and talk too him after he is done getting the line in. At the moment the guy has no idea what he wants. I wait like two hours, chilling in the parking lot of Firestone in Orlando at 10pm. The guy finally comes out, I'm thinking this guy is going to be like "GO HOME"! Instead he says, "COME WITH ME". I give hime my ID, he says "ohh you've already been wrist banded and everything." He takes me right past the women that wouldn't help me and security, "Go have a great time, and buy some drinks your getting in FREE." he says. I almost **** a brick! Hell yea, I'll have fun. Now I got to buy something at the merch booth, I got a fresh *** Tech N9ne bandanna.

Well I missed whoever the first act was, but from what I heard outside they sounded local and whack. I caught the whole of Slaughterhouse and Tech N9ne. Slaughterhouse was good nothing special, but I will be looking them up. All I can say is Tech was awesome, and he rocked so hard he played so many songs. He did this part in the middle of the set where Kalico was beatboxing and he would say a few lyrics of and old song, just to hear the crowd sing along and see where his real fans were. I loved that part so much, along with the fact that when his set ended his DJ came back and scratched some of his songs. Twas a good mix I would say. Tech then came back on stage and rocked for like another 15 mins getting all the girls lifting thier shirts. Woooo AREOLA Woooo AREOLA, girls pull that shirt above ya shouldas, lol. This guy in the upper back balcony was telling them to cut the set off, but finally gave up. They even turned the DJ table off, and Kalico kept it going with his beatboxing. That is true hip hop, no more no less.

I'm out...
