Advantages: Didn't cost us anything
Disadvantages: Nothing to see
Yawn... Got free tickets to Live 2000 as a friend works for Haymarket. I am soooo glad we didn't pay for them.
Five of us went, two girls and three boys and My friend and I spent a total of three minutes there.
What did I expect? Well a showcase of new computer games (specifically a chance to have a go on the new Play Station 2), lots of gadgets for us to play on and the boys to spend too much money on things they didn't need (admittedly so I could go guilt-free shopping next week).
What did we see? Sony Stands as far as the eye could see and scantily clad women- how long does is this ridiculous 1070's cliche going to last? As an aside, am I over-estimating men and in thinking that when they go to an electronics/gadget event they are actually want to see the gadgets? Do advertisers really think that lowly of men?
Jen and I went off to Dome on Earl's court road to join all the other women waiting for their men. We were all settling down for a few hours of coffee drinking, smoking and beer-drinking. What did we get? 3/4 of an hour with the disappointly early return of our men, all competing to tell us about the worse part of the exhibition- Winner- decibel competition for car stereos, apparently the guy lost power just as they were about to do their thing. Our guys waited displaying uncharacteristic patience, only to be disappointed in a comptition where lights went on to tell them who had the loudest stereo.
Call me stupid, but I thought that from the moment we walked in one stereo would have been indistinguishable from another...they were all playing so loud! (and I'm the type who head-bangs to Guns-N-Roses when reminiscing my Uni days)
Very Disappointing. I am now unable to reciprocate mass gadget spending in the high street, as apparently there was nothing to buy, and I have a car full of useless Sony Show-bags. Men were disappointed and didn't even get a chance to male-bond out of the
clutches of the feminine coffee shop. Now, as for the prices of the coffee in London....
