the austin taylorettes

Tonight a few of us went to Muse music to see our good friend Austin Taylor play a show. Unfortunately, this is what we saw instead:

there was a couple dancing, alone, in the middle of the floor THE WHOLE TIME. SERIOUSLY and the girl wore really bad pants (see video)

i made extended eye contact with the girl a couple times and i had to physically restrain myself from laughing out right or giving her a dirty look. Jenny was being offered $200 to cut in. after the 3rd song or so (the couple danced through every single one, by the way) austin said "the winners of the dance contest are couple number 13! everyone give them a hand" they didn't get the hint and continued to dance totally off beat for the next hour. i didn't mind it most of the time, it was pretty entertaining, it was just the grinding that made me uncomfortable. there was no way you could fit a book of mormon in between them, even a pocket-sized one.

as i type right now i am uploading the other videos to google video (the files are too big for youtube). they are hi-larious. sometime go on google video and search for "stupid dancing couple acoustic guitar" and you should get it

I wish I would have cut in... so badly. Not just because that guy was a total stud muffin, but because I could really use 200 bucks.

I don't know what's sadder... the fact that they totally butchered the music, or the fact that this is a female butt. I think those are men's dockers from like 1997.

i wasn't sure whether to be flattered or really pissed off by the dancing couple. when it was all said and done i guess i didn't mind too much -- at least they weren't having a loud conversation like the rest of the lovely audience.
