Thirty Seconds To Mars & “Grrl” Seven - Grand Prairie, TX - Dec 5, 2013
Thanks for the awesome m&g guys, and killer show! See you in Tulsa =)
Jared has a very natural charisma and magnetism about him. I never intentionally go into the photo saying “I’m going to latch onto Jared like a dolt” but it never fails! I’m just happy to see I don’t have my head in his armpit like I did in Tahoe. Or looking like I’m playing with Shannon’s chest like my MARS300 m&g photos (I wasn’t, I swear! *lol*)
I keep telling myself, next m&g I’m going to plant myself by Tomo and get a pic with that mofo. I’m a woman on a mission now…
Super sweet Shannon said he liked my pants and thought they were really cool. Tomo was his usual upbeat, silly self. I feel bad because usually I’m so shy, I never manage to say much or make eye-contact but Shannon seems to make it a mission to make people feel comfortable….and always gets me to smile or laugh.
When the q&a started, Jared asked us a lot of questions at first. I honestly turned to the girl next to me and joked, “So, I guess q&a meant Jared asks us questions?”
Anyway, I will never get tired of meeting these guys. Super cool, very down to earth. Even with the shit weather, they seemed in good spirits and took the time to do a q&a, signed our stuff (no pre-signed merch), and did the pics. I’d already given Reni my gifts for the guys earlier - which I never bring, but this time I had something special for each of them - so luckily I didn’t have to bring those into the m&g.
We were a small group, so it was nice and relaxed. And the handful of us that had side stage (inc me) got to go onstage for “Up In The Air” later that night.
I’m not much of a concert photographer, as I’m busy having fun…and my camera phone sucks. But I did manage to get some pics and videos I’ll try to sort through and upload later.
Nothing is like a Thirty Seconds To Mars show….
That moment you look up and Tomo is headbanging with you, sharing that brilliant energy he has.
That moment Jared makes eye contact with you and sees the tears in your eyes because his words have moved you so deeply.
That moment when you feel your heartbeat in time with Shannon’s drumming and you feel yourself on another plane of existence where nothing else matters…because at that moment, everything is perfect.
Then you look around and realize other people feel this way, too.
But you don’t feel like a tiny voice in a sea of millions. You feel alive.
Then you know … this is where you belong.
I AM THE ECHELON. And we are one…
"A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart, and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words…"
There’s just something about super sexy men with kittens and puppies…
Pardon me while I have a total girl moment….awwwww…

Hot. Damn. That’s all I have to say right now. Too busy staring…
Shannon Leto - Grand Palais - Paris, France - June 9, 2013
My office at home was missing something…so I decided this seemed to work out just dandy. I’ll hang the posters later to avoid that nasty glare. Ahhh, memories. For me, this celebrates the ending of a cycle, beginning a new chapter, and a new journey. Even my orchids have their place ;)
Now, the challenge remains…where to put the older MARS stuff *lol*
Well, some of you have been wondering why I’ve been so quiet about Thirty Seconds to Mars lately. Truth be told, I’ve just been offline, living life, enjoying the weather. And I was at SXSW for most of last week, so I’m probably still recovering *lol*
Anyway, so I pre-ordered LOVE LUST FAITH + DREAMS. Got myself “Up In The Air” and listened to it. A lot. And have been reading people’s comments and such. I’m not here to get into all the drama. I’m just here to empty my head of some swirling MARS thoughts…as usual.
