With Arms Wide Open

The bright side of the whole Twilight thing was that it couldn’t get any worse, right? The only good part about rock bottom is that there’s only one way to go, but rock bottom is an optimistic illusion because we never actually hit it. There’s always a ways more to fall, smacking your head on every branch on your way down the tree of infinite suck. Well, Sony had the bright idea that there were far too many movie theaters showing movies in this country, and so they will be showing Creed’s September 25th concert in 142 screens nation wide, starting on December 7th. Day which will live in infamy, indeed, touche Sony.

The concert set a Guinness record for using 239 high def cameras. So music is about the audio, and you set up 239 video cameras. Just curious, was that the Spinal Tap memorial Guinness Record for obliviousness? I guess it’s fair to say that the Creed experience was never really about the music anyway. It was about the pretty hair, wife beaters, and grainy cell phone footage of group sex with Kid Rock.

The selected theaters are being chosen to target areas (un)fortunate enough to have not been host to the tour itself, which is sort of like beating cancer only to get hit by a bus.
