|You haven't lived until you've taken a NYC train very late on New Year's Eve. The last time I did it was probabaly a good 5-6 years ago, when I saw a guy with a bloody gash under his eye wearing no shoes or socks and with no jacket stumble onto the train. He must've had a good story to tell. Last night, I took the train home from the Barclays Center because it seemed easier and safer than taking a cab back, and I didn't see anything quite that good, but 2 different women threw up on the same exact spot about 6 stations apart. The second one had very good presence of mind to aim for the same spot that was already a mess so as not to ruin another spot on the crowded train, so kudos to her.
Anyway Billy Joel still puts on one hell of a show. No Captain Jack but he played lots of other lesser known songs he hasn't played in forever (most of which I didn't like honestly, but I'm not exactly in his demo), and the 2nd half of the show picked up after midnight and was really fun. His band is really amazing too, especially Carl Fischer who plays some brass instruments. He played for 2 hours 15 minutes. The only disappointment was that there was no special guests after everyone from Paul McCartney to Jay-Z had been rumored to be there.

This thread was great before AA ruined it.
