Lighters out, cell phones in
« on: January 08, 2005, 06:47:00 pm »
Has anyone else noticed how often people will hold up cell phones much the way people would hold up lit lighters in days of yore?  I don't know if I really approve of this new thing.

Well it is weird, since most have a blue glow when turned on, you get the look more of ice than fire.  And some bands have started saying "Take out your cell phones" to do it instead of lighters.

What i've noticed is these goddamn dipshits calling their friends during the middle of the show and then holding the cell phone up so their friend can here the band.

i have seen people do this (at the Green Day concert) and i was like, "please, shoot me, now"
 
   ok, lighters are cool, or were cool.
 
   but i think the cell phone thing is horrible. maybe I'm just old.

Rob, your comment, although usually a valid point that you manage to bring up on every thread on this board, is INvalid here.
 
   I, for example, dont mind the lighters at the concerts.  but cell phones?  call me a generation before cell phones, but i think its lame.  but it has nothing to do with how many people are doing it.
 
   you're not actually reading these threads are you?
