La Vegetariana Loca

Here are some random ramblings of a girl that will probably end up in an insane asylum sometime in her near future...Kookookachoo. She loves her Queen, she loves her Beatles and her Who and her Zeppy and her music in general. She loves her writing. She loves love. And she loves you. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah.

Happy Birthday, Bonzo!!!!!

john bonham and robert plant
That's right! If John Bonham, Led Zeppelin's original drummer, was still around today, he'd be turning 60. ^_^ Love ya, Bonzo!

...I really need to stop being so informal over people I don't know.XD

So, why do I have a picture that has both Robert Plant and John Bonham, you ask? Well, maybe you didn't...But I'm too hyped up to care! Over the past week, I've been slightly down because I wasn't able to get my hands on Robert Plant/Alison Krauss tickets. I love Robert Plant--obviously--and through him I got into Alison Krauss...Which takes a lot...I can't stand anything even remotely country...Anyway! I love them both, and I really wanted to go to a show of theirs.

Tickets were sold out.

I wasn't happy.

Early this afternoon, I was looking for tickets on the internet when my dad said, "C'mere. I need to show you something." He was using the tone that he uses when I've done something wrong.

I got up from the computer and sat down on the sofa, trying my hardest to look innocent.

In short, my parents hemmed and hawed a little. My mom started to cry. Then, she pulled out two tickets and handed them to me.


You have NO idea how happy I am. XD I'm still really excited, and I got them a few hours ago.


Other news: I'm out of school now. I didn't have to go Friday because I didn't have any exams, so...yeah.

Um...I'm reading The Once and Future King. Great book. Freakishly long. I have to finish it in a week.

I get to see one of my good friends from elementary school tomorrow for the first time in ages!


I think that's it...

Love ya!

Audrey Kitching
(Ze Audrey Kitching!!! Am I turning scene?...Mehbeh...XD But who cares? Her hair matches my blog background!)
I feel dumb. And crappy. Can't forget crappy. My head hurts mucho...XD And I am le tired. And I have a buttload of homework...EVEN THOUGH IT'S THE END OF THE YEAR. And I just made a major idiot of myself.

Well, Danny sent a package to me, and he said that it should be here today. So I flipped out when I saw a package on the mailbox. A few of my friends gathered around: they were excited, too. I ripped open the box, giggling, then...

The box was a book addressed to my dad.


I need some sleep. But I can't sleep. I love irony!

Firstly, this lovely man is going to be performing on American Idol tonight. So, even if you don't give two you-know-whats about who wins, watch for George Michael!
George Michael
Gah! So excited for that!

So...A lot of crap's been going on this week...Don't really want to go into that...But I felt like posting the video of the week today, because IT SHMAKES ME HAPPY. Ish the Dresden Dolls and Panic at the Disco. ^_^

ZOMGZ! I almost diiiiiied!

Okay, so not really. But I was supposed to have our last chorus concert of the year last night, but it got postponed. Why? These three tornadoes touched down where I live! Trees EVERYWHERE! Lots of branches. The power went out and didn't come on until this afternoon...Thankfully, nobody was hurt, but there was a lot of damage...roads blocked, the whole nine yards.

C'mon, people! I don't live in Florida for a REASON!



Hm...Nothing else to say, really. Um...Brendon Urie and Gabe Saporta are sexy beasts...

Happy Birthday, Pete Townshend!

Pete Townshend
pete townshend bw
Yep! Today is the fabulous Birdman's 63 birthday. WE LOVE YA, PETE!!!!! Hugs and kisses for the fantasmic guitarist of the "'orrible" Who. ^_^

Okay...Now, that was why my day wasn't horrible.:P

I couldn't think of anything to write...So I drew. Sucky drawing, but it was fun. Very George Michael-ish: she had one cross earring and "WHAM!" written on her tank top.

Yeah...So that was sorta fun.

I got a 94% on my lit EOCT. Not cool. You see, that brought down my GPA. I'm not complaining because of the grade. No, I'm complaining because of how it was graded.

You know how a lot of things are graded on a curve? Like, if a test is really hard, you'll get a higher grade just so the grades even out? Well, that's how it worked for everyone else: I saw people that had missed between eight and ten questions, and they all had grades that were no more than three points below mine.

I missed TWO and I got a 94%. I should have gotten a 98% (it was an 80 question test), or a 97% at the least, but instead I got a low A. So I sound like an overachiever. I know I am one. But I'm aiming for valedictorian, and if my grade is going to be thrown off like that just to match some stupid curve, I don't see how I'll make it.

So, yeah. Just a little pissed off, especially since I checked over the entire test THREE TIMES IN DETAIL.

Anyway...I've got to go study. I have a biology EOCT tomorrow.

The curve should die. If you suck, you suck. Deal with it. But the people that work their asses off to ace a test shouldn't be brought down just to make the people that suck look better.

Another kicker? That grade is 15% OF MY FINAL GRADE.

I SO want to work here after I graduate...

This would be the best place ever to work the summer before I go to college!
"Led Zeppelin, Moody Blues are rides in new Hard Rock Park at Myrtle Beach
May 6, 2008
MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. — The Led Zeppelin classic "Whole Lotta Love" throbs from the 1,200-watt sound system as the slick silver and white roller coaster nears the top of its serpentine track.
Lead singer Robert Plant shrieks, "Woman. You need. Loooooooove . . ." And as he does, riders scream as the car falls from a height of 47 metres, reaching speeds of more than 100 km/h.
Welcome to Hard Rock Park, America's newest theme park and the first one built in the nation in a decade. Here the theme is not movies or fairy tales or water shows. It's that American invention, rock 'n' roll.
The $400 million park in the heart of South Carolina's $16 billion tourism industry had a soft opening in April that it called a "sound check." The grand opening is slated for June 2-3, with concerts by the Eagles and The Moody Blues.
As has Led Zeppelin, both groups have lent their names to key attractions at the 22-hectare park built around a lake dominated by 21-metre replica of a Les Paul guitar.
The Eagles' "Life in the Fast Lane" roller coaster spins through what appears to be an abandoned saw mill as the hit song plays. "Nights in White Satin, The Trip" winds through the dark amid psychedelic lights and images set to the 1960s Moody Blue's hit.
Nearby looms a reproduction of the Statue of Liberty with sun glasses, and holding not a torch, but a Zippo cigarette lighter. Engraved on the pedestal is a quote from Neil Young: "Keep On Rockin' in the Free World." The park also hosts nightly fireworks shows choreographed to "Bohemian Rhapsody," and one of its eateries is called Alice's Restaurant, after the Arlo Guthrie song.
The park is the first foray by Hard Rock, best known for its cafes, into the amusement park business.
"We realized everybody had done movie parks," said Steven Goodwin, the park's chief executive officer. "Why do something everyone else has done in Orlando and Paramount parks around the country? We just thought rock 'n' roll was a natural."
Building a theme park around music guarantees an audience from children to seniors.
"Music is one of those things that connects emotionally with us," he said. "You hear a song and you immediately have a memory or a related emotional experience. That's what we're trying to create here."
"What younger kids have been exposed to is very eclectic because of the Internet and the iPod," said Jon Binkowski, the park's chief creative officer.
"Younger kids have been exposed to be the Beatles and the Rolling Stones and things like that."
The park is divided into areas such as British Invasion, which features the bus the Beatles used in the film "Magical Mystery Tour."
Among the other areas are Cool Country, Born in the USA and even Rock and Roll Heaven, where the names of 350 musicians playing in that big concert hall in the sky are engraved bricks and stone as a memorial.
Visitors can see swimmers and divers perform in a show called "Malibu Beach Party," play arcade games such as Whack-A-Boys-Band - similar to Whac-a-Mole - and catch live musical performances throughout the park.
All the while, rock music from different eras plays seamlessly through the park's elaborate sound system.
"You can layer rock 'n' roll over a theme park. It's just a natural," Binkowski said. "Music makes a connection that a movie doesn't. Movies continually have to tap back into music to get their flavour and their soul."
Hard Rock is the first new park built in the nation in a decade, according to the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions. There are about 400 amusement parks in the United States.
Hard Rock hopes to attract 30,000 visitors a day and about three million a year.
But industry consultant Dennis Speigel wonders if Hard Rock can make those numbers in a troubled economy and when the industry is saturated with attractions.
"It's a very hefty price at $400 million and the projections they have published are very ambitious," he said. "Very few theme parks, with the exception of a handful, and primarily the Disney and the Universal Parks, have ever opened exceeding 2 million people in the first year."
There's a theme park within a 2 1/2 hour drive of most major metropolitan areas, added Speigel, president of International Theme Park Services based in Cincinnati.
"The people coming to Myrtle Beach probably have a major theme park close to them, whether they are coming from Canada or coming from Charlotte," he said. "I don't know if there is anything there that absolutely tips the scales in favour of somebody saying 'I can't leave Myrtle Beach without going there."'
But for Chad Frisbie, of Rumford, Maine, who visited recently, Hard Rock was the reason for flying to Myrtle Beach.
"We looked online and saw this was a new theme park and that's what we based the vacation on," he said, as he got off the Led Zeppelin coaster. "This was the one thing I wanted to check out and I'm glad I did."
Binkowski said there will be plenty of potential guests.
"There are 14 million visitors who come to Myrtle Beach and 13 million of them are families," he said. After the family goes to the beach and eats out and plays miniature golf, they will want to spend the day at a theme park, he predicted. "We built this for the family."
Goodwin said he believes that Hard Rock may be more attractive to visitors than continuing south to Florida theme parks.
"We're 500 miles (805 kilometres) closer to the major population centres of the Northeast," he said. "At $3.50 a gallon, that's a big amount of money when you add it up. Plus there are a lot more affordable motels in Myrtle Beach."
Hard Rock opens about a year and a half after Myrtle Beach's oceanfront Pavilion amusement park closed. The roller coasters and arcades there were part of the fabric of this beach community for more than half a century.
Unlike the Pavilion, which usually closed around Labour Day, Hard Rock plans to open its gates during the spring and fall shoulder seasons.
"We'll do Rocktoberfest, we'll do Halloween and we're looking to do Christmas," Goodwin said. "I think between us working with Myrtle Beach and selling ourselves that time of year, we'll be able to bring people in."
Back at the Statue of Liberty, there's another attraction, one of the park employees. Brian Glenn with his purple-streaked shock of hair, seems to be having as much fun as the visitors.
"I can wear my tattoos out. I can wear my piercings. I just get to run around and be myself," he said. "I tell them why I'm here, they start getting into it and we have a blast."
If You Go . . .
Hard Rock Park: 211 George Bishop Parkway, Myrtle Beach, S.C., or 843-236-7625 . Soft opening hours through May 8, 4 p.m.-10 p.m. Beginning May 9, open daily 10 a.m.-1 a.m., $50 per person (free for children under 3). Annual pass, $150. For grand opening June 3, park will close at 6 p.m. and reopen at 7 p.m. for a 9 p.m. Eagles concert, for which separate tickets must be purchased at $284.88." The Canadian Press

Let's mix two of my favorite things in the world: Jesus Christ Superstar and Roger Daltrey!

He's doing the part of Judas. I would kill to see him perform it live!
