Close the Door?

"Haven't you people ever heard of closing the goddamn door?"

That would be a lyric from one of my favorite songs of all time.  "I Write Sins not Tragedies" by Panic! At the Disco.

This song came out in 2005.  I was in college and/or grad school at the time.  It was radio popular, it was a little outside the realm of what I normally listened to, and it was darn catchy.

There is quite the truth within that song.  It talks of deceit, honesty, and how to deal with these things.  In a sticky situation, there are only so many options of how to deal with things.  You can be honest, meaning brutally honest, you can find a strange middle ground with no actual truths, or you can shut your mouth.  I'm not sure that there is an actual right answer as it usually depends on the situation.  I am also willing to bet that everyone else, like me, has chosen all of these options at one point in time or another.

My mind got to thinking about these things as I remembered the first two acts at the concert I went to on Saturday.  Twenty One Pilots opened, followed by Panic! At the Disco.  It was, simply put, a darn good show.  I wish our seats had been closer, but next time they will be!

So now I sit here, on a Monday night, contemplating life, truth, and how we all get into ugly situations, despite our best efforts.  Tonight...I have no answers.  I have no great revelations.  So please, enjoy the limited picks and the awesome videos.

And if you get the chance, check out the music by these artists, and even better, get out and see them in concert.  It is well worth your time.

Stories about the lovely ladies behind us are still to come

Almost time for Panic! (I waited years to see them!)
