This is a thread for positive times when you’ve looked forward to something or maybe even were a bit wary about something and it totally met or smashed your expectations.
Someone wittered on about snorkeling and even loaned me the gear before we went on the most expensive holiday I think I’ll ever have but it was actually brilliant. So many different fish big and small. And baby sharks. Totally mindblowing.
Gig wise, I think of all my many years of gig going it’s LCD Soundsystem at the Barras who really smashed what I was expecting. Was sober and couldn’t stop my body moving and my face smiling (I am not a body mover or face smiler, in general).
Went to Berlin with some pals and every single beer was the greatest I’ve ever had. Don’t even know the name of a single one we had, they were just all top tier tasting but actually in reality it was probably like their tennents and totally bog standard.
gig wise I saw Low a couple of years back, wasn’t too keen on Double Negative, thought it was a bit gimmicky and empty but the songs worked much better live and Alan wore a nice jumper so I had a great evening
