But First- Let Me Take A Selfie.... - 05/05/14

Hello all!

How was your weekend? I had a wonderful time Friday night. I've been here in Nashville two years, but Friday was my first time catching a show at the Ryman. It is such an incredible and intimate venue. Lana Del Rey gave an amazing performance- she is one of my favorite singers and her performance exceeded my expectations.

I was seated in the front row of the balcony section, so I had a really good view of the stage and the fans in the front- which brings me to the point of this blog post. When I looked down I saw a sea of cell phones in the air with young fans eager to record their favorite performance moments. Also, so many times throughout the night I'd glance away from the stage to see fans with their backs turned to take a 'selfie' with the performance behind them....

I can't say I didn't snap a photo of the stage between songs- but do you think this age of total documentation we've entered takes away from experiencing the actual moment? Does it annoy you when you're at a concert or event and you observe the 'selfie' culture? Inquiring minds want to know- please share your opinion! @ErinSteerClear

MARYLAND AGENCY-BEDBUGS

BALTIMORE (AP) -- Some Maryland state workers get to sleep in today -- because of bedbugs. Employees on one floor at the Department of the Environment headquarters in Baltimore have the day off. A spokesman says the agency is conducting a comprehensive inspection for bedbugs. The pests were discovered last month. The agency has hired an exterminator to treat the office building.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL-WEDDINGS

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) -- Wedding planners have to keep an eye on the calendar and the football schedule. Fall weddings present a challenge, you don't want to get hitched when many of the guests would rather be watching the game. Professional wedding planner Kavonda L. Rogers of Montgomery, Alabama, recalls "World War III" nearly broke out a few years ago. She says a bride settled on a wedding date not realizing it was the same day as the South's oldest football rivalry, Auburn and Georgia. But Rogers worked out a compromise. She had a big-screen TV in a room right off the reception area.

FOLSOM FIELD-BEER

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) -- Beer is back in the cheap seats for Colorado fans. Wine and beer have returned to the regular seating areas at University of Colorado, Boulder's Folsom Field for the first time in nearly 20 years. The Daily Camera reports thirsty fans were able to get a brew inside the stadium during the matchup against Arizona State. Beer and wine had only been available in premium seating areas. University police say lifting the ban is aimed at keeping people in the stadium. Before, fans would go to the parking lot to drink then return to their seats.

OHIO TOWN-MYSTERY ANIMAL

LEIPSIC, Ohio (AP) -- There's a mystery animal prowling the streets of a small northwest Ohio town. The creature was first spotted September 7. One woman tells the (Findlay) Courier it was white and gray with a large bushy tail. She says it definitely looked wild and was larger than her golden retriever. Some folks in Leipsic (LIHP'-sihk) figure it's a wolf, others are saying it could be a large coyote or a wolf mix. A state wildlife officer who spotted the mystery creature says it's probably someone's pet.
