Can we all just take a moment...

..and thank the internet gods and digital camera innovators for optimizing quality whilst reducing required capacity, thusly allowing us to easily record and post gloriousness? And thank Youtube for being the vehicle of said gloriousness (even though it's the bane of a performer's existence at times, in this case, it is only a showcase of sheer talent)? And the speaker, for providing a stable surface upon which to record? And Katie for posting?

There are other versions floating around, but this is the one that inspires the official declaration: better than the original.

It's a double-edged sword.

On one hand, yay live recordings of songs you haven't heard live.
On t'other, get that fucking camera phone out of my way and enjoy the gig, instead of recording every moment for prosperity.

Agree wholeheartedly. I partake in all of the viewing, but none of the filming/taking pictures (mostly because it's not my strength anyway, I can't stay still for long enough!). Since I stopped, gig-attendance has become a much more enjoyable experience.I do so appreciate folks who make this sacrifice, including this speaker/monitor.

I agree about recording at gigs....get that f'n iPhone outta my field of vision! On the other hand, I enjoy taking pictures at shows. Allows me to look back & relive all the fun I had that evening.

If I record at shows (rare) I make sure my phone is out of my own eyeline, in front of my chest, but still getting a decent picture. Then hopefully it doesn't disturb many people :)
