I Hope That's Not Really What You Experienced

YEAH!!! ROCK AND ROLL!!!! .......oh.......sorry........I got carried away. Anyhoo, I'm a big fan of live music and the whole concert experience. I've seen most of my favorite bands live in concert at some point in my life, and often I go to YouTube and seek out my favorite artists performing some of my favorite songs in concert LIVE AND LOUD! ......and usually, 99.847% of the time, I'm sadly disappointed. Either the sound is horrible, the camera is out of focus, the camera operator is jumping up and down and moving the camera around so much I feel like puking, the stage is so far away I feel like I'm watching a flea circus, or a combination of some or all of these things! Here.......let me give you an example. This is one of my favoritist bands, Aerosmith, playing a song from one of my favoritist albums, Rocks......one of my favoritist song, Last Child... Wait until the bass and drums kick in (1:12) for the full effect: http://youtu.be/XHFauqDT1pA So......I know you're excited about the concert you just went to, you had a rocking good time, and you want to share your experience with the world...... .......but unless, at the concert, you were operating a jackhammer, while riding a tilt-a-whirl, wearing goggles smeared with Vaseline, and wearing headphones made out of tin foil balls with hornets inside........you're not REALLY sharing YOUR experience! OK.....that's it......I'm done. Go out there, have a good time, record with something that can handle the noise levels of a live concert, and FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT'S HOLY.....HOLD THE CAMERA STILL!!! .......and if it looks/sounds like crap, DON'T post it to YouTube......you're just wasting bandwidth and MY TIME! Thank you for your cooperation.

When the ability to post anything you wanted to to the web for all the world to see a lot of people thought that they just had to post everything they saw. They figure the public has a right to know. Personally I think that the public would be better serviced if broadcasting was left to those who knew how to do it.
