What irritates me more than the audience shots in filmed concerts is when they cut to an interview in the middle of the performance (usually when someone takes an instrumental solo because who really wants to hear that!). Usually the music continues in the background behind the person talking but is so soft as to be almost not heard. At least in the audience shots you still hear the music. This doesn't happen as often as the audience shots but I have seen it more often than you would imagine.
Ah, nothing like a rant to make you feel better.

Watching people air guitar/drum/etc during a concert is right up there with watching audience members laugh during a stand up routine. Waste.

You're right TC. That's much funnier.

You're confusing schizophrenia with multiple or dissociative personality disorder, some people might take issue with that. Instead of "I used to be schizophrenic, now he's not" it's more like "I used to be schizophrenic, now the voices are telling me I'm not".

Regarding the first religious moron's story (the one who cashed ten years of a dead woman's pension checks), there's another remark that bears making. Yes, Reverend Rosa is a moron, but...

In total, he embezzled about $250,000 over a ten year period, or $25,000.00 per year. The woman was a teacher! For all of her service, and all of the young minds she filled with important ... *stuff*, that's kind of a paltry sum.

We need to treat our teachers better. We really do. Look below the religious moronity and there's a much greater issue at hand.
