To pick up where jose left off:
i went to the portland show last night. to answer some outstanding questions:
1. yes, it was just jack and ben. lynn was seriously missed.
2. the merch table had nothing new. no shirts, just the new cd, the p.divide one, and the live 05 dvd.
3. not breathing was kind of a snorefest. the music was interesting and certainly noisy, but it felt like someone hit play on a dvd. david is probably a super nice guy, but i don't know if he was even there. having the visuals up only to have the mbm ones after didn't help, either.
4. the set was almost the same as last year's (except with a few new tracks from acid). the visuals were pretty much the same, too (down to the 'buy a tee shirt' subliminal message -- even though they had none to sell)
all in all, i was happy to see jack (i haven't missed a tour since '89), but this felt like a quickie jaunt for jack, rather than a planned tour. here's hoping that the next run will involve lynn or at least something onstage to keep our attention.
