    Tonight's SD concert

    I took my 11 year old boy to his First concert tonight, His favorite rapper, Tech N9ne. Thanks for an amazing show. It was safe and fun. House of Blues security were great. I appreciate how you interact with the crowd--my son is a loyal fan. He was born in KC-thanks for a great experience!!

    You let your 11 year old listen to Tech?

    He is in middle school, if he is going to listen to music anyway at least I know what is going on and can explain the correct information vs what he may hear at school and on the streets. There were 2-3 other kids there. I would rather know whats going on and talk to him about what is reall and appropriate and whats for show--its not music or video games that make people do things--its their decision making and critical thinking skills. If you listen to his music you know its about life struggles and dealing with emotions-most of the time.Thanks for the dialogue.

    I'm sure explaining "Fuck Food" and "Pornographic" to him was a great conversation

    Luckily I haven't yet. He has not heard T9X, those two or F Em Girl, etc. I have an IPOD that we play in the car, when he goes online he sees songs like Demons, Red Nose and more focused on those--he is a kid still. When they were chanting Aeriola--I did explain after the concert--he said, Oh, yuk. Not into girls yet. I like songs he doesn't care for and he likes songs I'd rather not hear. Look at TV and life today. Rape-Abuse-even cartoons are a little over the top and are teaching moments. Its a little more direct now than before. I listened to Hair bands in the 80's at 13-14--King Diamond and Ozzy--Ozzy is mainstream and tame now-back then he was considered a Devil Worshiper. WB cartoons like Daffy and Bugs Bunny you can make an arguement they are not appropriate. You shoot someone in the face at point blank range and all that happens is his beak spins around. That is not what would happen in real life. I listened to AMG-Too Live Crew-Too Short and Rock and Roll--It did not make my life any different--I played sports in college and never did drugs.


    The coolest part--Since my IPOD is on shuffle. It will go from The Beast--and the next soon will be Ancient Skies--a christian song--then go to Kick start my Heart (which is about overdosing on drugs) by Motley Cure--He will definitely be diverse. Its really the beat--My mom at 69 likes Air Force One by Nelly--she thinks its about airplanes--I had to tell her its about shoes.

    Did you have to explain to him why Tech went down and rapped straight into some chicks box during "Seven Words"? I bet that was a bonding conversation, lol.
