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

OLYMPIC SLED RIDE

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. (AP) -- If this record-breaking winter isn't wild enough -- you can slide belly-down on sled at about 40 miles per hour. The site of the 1980 Winter Olympics at Lake Placid, New York, is offering skeleton sledding. For 75 bucks, visitors can try the twisting sled run. It's all over in a flash, about 40 seconds. Scott Hayes of Toronto says it was a lot faster than he anticipated. Jillian Frascoia of Richmond, Vermont, says it was scary, but great.

BASKETBALL JERSEY CONTROVERSY

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- It's was an attempt to think pink. And it almost cost a girls' high school basketball team a chance to play for the Los Angeles city championship. Officials disqualified Narbonne High, after the girls wore uniforms with pink letters and numbers for breast cancer awareness. Rules require teams to wear only their official school colors. Now, league officials have reversed their decision, but coach Victoria Sanders has been suspended for the rest of the season. Sanders tells the Los Angeles Times she accepts the punishment. The Narbonne girls' basketball program will be on probation through next season. The team faces Palisades High in the section championship game Saturday.

NATIONAL ARCHIVES-ALCOHOL

WASHINGTON (AP) -- You might think of it as the United States of booze. The National Archives is exploring America's long history with alcohol. Curators pulled 100 original items and documents from the archives. They include the 18th Amendment that created Prohibition, the 21st Amendment that repealed it, President Franklin Roosevelt's cocktail shaker and a first edition of "Alcoholics Anonymous." "Spirited Republic: Alcohol in American History" opens tomorrow in Washington.

TIME CHANGE-SAME HOUSE

KENDALL, Kan. (AP) -- Think this weekend's time change is a headache? Well, consider the situation of Ron and Sherry Finlay. Their home near Kendall in western Kansas sits on the line that divides the Mountain and Central time zones. Walk through a door on one side of the house, it's Central Time. Go through another door, and it's Mountain Time. They tell the Hutchinson News they've decided to live on Mountain Time. But Sherry Finlay says it sometimes gets confusing for visitors.
