I'll be there tonight stooded up on the floor bopin to Send more paramedics and The Offspring and that other band thats playing!....I'll also take lots of pictures and film as photography is my hobby!

I thought i'd make this as I hate the thousands of other threads that appear with one post saying "OMGzzzz! Dat Waz Amazing!!!!11111one"

They better play stuff from Smash, if they don't im going to cry!...Alot! And If I get viciously attacked by some 10 year old bopin to stuff from americana and greatest hits i'm going to be rather annoyed :p

See everyone there, and hope you all have a great time and dont get injured..

Peace!

Craig

In work today after the Offspring gig last night (and then a long drive up the M6 afterwards), but it was so so worth it. :) Where are your pictures, then? I sure wouldn't mind a bootleg of last nights performance :D

And If I get viciously attacked by some 10 year old bopin to stuff from americana and greatest hits i'm going to be rather annoyed :pYou say that as if Americana is an album strictly aimed at kids? It's definitely one of my favourites. The first six tracks are truely awesome. Ixnay has my favourite two or three Offspring songs on of the lot, but Americana is probably the most solid album for me. "Fans" who stereotype other fans by what songs they like/appreciate/relate to the most are the worst. Sorry if I'm overreacting, but it had to be said.

Americana in my opinion is their worst album.

Americana in my opinion is their worst album.Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. :) Their first, self titled album is the one I listen to the least. I can't really get in to it at all... Though, I didn't get in to Offspring until Smash/Ixnay, so that may explain something. *Shrug*

I don't know what any of their self titled albums are, heck, I don't know the names of most of their songs, all I know is that I have listened and loved them since I was a wee little 4 year old.

I have to say out of my many Gigs, That was one of the best. My Pictures will be up soon, but there's somthing I have to say.

1) Kids - I was at the barrier to the left infront of noodles. I qued for 4 hours to get to the barrier, only to be greeted by Two kids one not even taller than the barrier who had pushed from the front. I tend to have a good time and get in the 'mood' for gigs IE Singing, jumping ect. BUT I got yelled at by some woman behind me becuase I was GETTTING pushed into him. I have nothing agaist kids being there, but when they're at the front no bigger than the barrier itself and they push through to get there, then I get angry

2) Booing..Whats with that? Booing Send More Paramedics, if that was you up there in your band would you like it? If you don't like them fine, dont clap, dont sing, but don't boo.

/rant mode over

Right apart from a banging head ache, ringing in my ears, and bruised ribs. I'm fine and had a great time! :D - stand by for pictures.

Heheheh aye. They'd probably benefit from being re-sized to around 1280x or thereabouts, increasing the DPI in the process, which might take some of that distinct grain away from them. (They look pretty suspect to digital zoom).

Nevar! They can stay as they are :p Becuse i'm incredibly lazy and dont have the program on my laptop. Just save them to your computer and look at them using the picture viewer thingy.

Stop using ridiculously large images and install this image resizer, for the sake of your bandwidth and respect:

Awww, don't throw your rattle out of your pram just yet :p It's just courtious to keep a webpage within reasonable dimensions. People appreciate any pictures being posted! If they're going to be so big that they completely screw the forums, just post a link to the folder in which they're contained like you just have done. :)

If somone takes pictures and shares them you dont expect to be moaned at becuase they are too big.Not moaned at, but a polite request to make them a sensible size is a different matter :) I personally don't mind, but it must make life hard on those with less forgiving desktop resolutions. A lot of people still use 800x600 believe it or not. (Some even still use 640x480 - insane).
