Now THAT'S My Kind of Christmas Carol, Ya'll

Is there anything those Family boys can't make better? I can think of no better way to get into the holiday spirit than rocking into the holidays like this! Enjoy!

Let's Use Some Judgement, People!

So, Adam and I went to The Next Big Thing in Tampa this weekend, it was an all day concert at the Tampa Fairgrounds put on by a local radio station. It was pretty sweet, we saw Bush, A Day To Remember, Taking Back Sunday, Cage The Elephant, Foster The People, Young The Giant, Manchester Orchestra, Sublime, Khora, The Joy Formidable Grouplove, Sleeper Agent, Fun & Awolnation. With the exception of Sleeper Agent (terrible) and Sublime (no one wants to hear your crappy new stoner music, play Santaria or get off the stage), they were all pretty good. We were there mainly for Awolnation, which may be Adam and Seth's new favorite band (sadly, Seth stayed home with Wicky Rabbit, we feel he is still too young for the rock scene quite yet), and were able to get right up front for them. But here's the thing, and be forewarned this is where the old person rant starts, what the hell is wrong with people? I am all for rocking out and having a killer time, and if you have no objection to a bunch of strangers groping you and you want to crowd surf, you go for it, but can I just say there should be some rules? For all you kids out there who are planning to partake of this at the next show you go to, here are Adam and Mellissa's rules for Crowd Surfing:

1) Assess the crowd: if it is full of skinny little college girls, maybe this is not a crowd surfing kind of event;
2) If you are over 150 lbs, maybe you should not be depending on a bunch of strangers to hold you over their heads and transport you anywhere safely;
3) If you are wearing combat boots, maybe jumping into a crowd and having your feet flailing near peoples heads is not a totally safe idea;
4) Why you would go to a concert barefoot is beyond me, but if you do, why do you think I want your dirty hippie feet near my head?;
5) People are there to see the show, not be your personal crowd surfing moving walkway. If you want to crowd surf, do it once maybe twice, and call it a day. I don't need to pass the same fat, pink haired girl over my head 6 times during the same song. I'm glad your having fun and all, but give it a rest and let someone else have a turn. I bet you hogged the slide when you were a kid too, didn't you, chubsy?;
6) Take heed if the singer of the band announces that he is going to crowd surf, because if he dives into the crowd he is totally gonna get dibs, that crowd is going to drop your ass (happened during Cage the Elephant, and it was hilarious, that poor little girl straight up disappeared onto the floor).

Just Saying. Rant over :)
