Re: “World Suicide Prevention Day

I attended this event yesterday. I went to this event by myself. I think I was the only person there alone, it seemed, in the 70+ attendees. I sat cheerfully, listening to the speakers and people watching during the breaks. I was there one hour and fifteen minutes. Perhaps it was my dreadlocks or the fact that my clothes weren't fancy, but not one person came up to me and shook my hand or looked me in the eyes and asked me "Hi who are you? How are you?" Sitting alone at a table, I did get asked to move so that another group of girls could sit there. And sitting on the couch alone I did have a guy rudely squeeze in beside me with no regard to the fact I was there. And yet speaker after speaker the message was "You are not alone". I feel sadness and still compassion regarding my experience. Increasing awareness about suicide is wonderful. And yet, suicide is not an idea or a notion. It is an act, committed by persons. I am a person. My father committed suicide, my brother attempted suicide and I have been suicidal in the past but am no longer struggling with this, thankfully. My recovery wasn't because of messages or speakers or slogans. It's because people made me loved and warm.

Re: “Todd Rundgren

Love Todd Rundgren. A few drunk patrons made this unpleasant. Sad to see people leave early in the show since he sorta sang a few oldies with a twist towards the end of the concert. The concert was promoting Global, though most expected SOME of the originals. Overall money well spent. Good Luck on tour Todd.

Re: “21st Anniversary Celebration

I wish they would have mentioned that every single activity there aside from the tour had an additional cost. It took them 15 minutes to charge my card on their cell phones. It looked like the animals have a happy home, though.

Re: “Blues Under the Bridge

The music was good, but the sound system was inadequate. Hard to hear from sides and further back. Lots of feedback and equalization problems. Sound personnel were inexperienced. Took a long time to find the right balance. The event was poorly organized. Lots of time and confusion between acts. Not nearly as well attended as in previous years. Fab T-Birds were excellent!
