MGMT / Re: Random MGMT Thoughts
« on: July 16, 2014, 11:19:40 AM »
The one time (so far) I've gotten to hang out with lala, was at a show in Indianapolis. She walked up behind us to stand in line, and I knew. I don't know how I knew but I knew. All I remember thinking is "Quick Dakota, don't be a wuss. Try to start a conversation and figure out if you're right." At that point I was fairly new here still am, fuck it and had never seen pictures of this remarkable human specimen. But it worked. I knew and as we were talking, I could see she came to know also. (It was beautiful. I think I might just shed a tear.) Anyways, we hadn't exchanged names and she said "you're Dakota aren't you?!" And in the midst of smiling and replying "I knew it" I found myself in an embrace that was so warm, it will be told in my story book of friendship for the rest of my life. And that's how it happened. You fucking rule woman.


This gives me the chillies.  That's the power of lala! 

Setting off on a 5 hour journey to visit one of my favorite people!

Happy Birthday Will!  MGMT would not be MGMT without your stellar drumming skills.  Enjoy the day!

A)  I had NO idea Metallica was playing Glastonbury.  I miss those dudes and am very jealous of the Brits.
B)  LOVE that Kids video!!!

i saw.
he knew who she was.

"One time, Lala met Andrew, and he told her she was famous."

So the obligatory Happy Rivaversary everyone!  I quoted this same post a couple of years ago, but it just always makes me laugh, especially 4 years later as I think about all that has happened.  I've traveled a lot of miles and I've seen a lot of shows since this one, but it's still the best show I've ever seen.  The setlist was impeccable (and my signed setlist has survived).  The baby that Abbers and I made during Kids is now 3 years old.  I read the thread again and smiled the whole time.  What a cherished memory this is!

BAHAHAH!

I can't believe it has been 4 years.  This was my first of many MGMT shows, so it holds a special place in my brain and heart!

^You're amazing.  I don't think this place would have such a family feel were it not for you.  Thank you for always being there for us as a friend/family member/advice giver/music enthusiast/fellow traveler!

The extended YLIAL is genius !! So hypnotic
It was gorgeous. It started and I thought, Wow, this sounds like YLIAL. It was really lovely.

ooOOoo, I hope I get to here this extended version in Georgia--I'm intrigued!
