An email to my shooting list:
Went to Disney Hall downtown last night to hear Dudamel conduct and Dawn Upshaw sing …
We’re sitting in the grown-up section, where tickets are $125 each; and TG and I spent the first half of the program shutting people up.
WHAT THE F***?? Were these people raised by wolves?
So I’m wondering if a silenced Colt Woodsman, shooting subsonic ammo, aimed just above the knee would be too noisy to use in that environment…(not really, but thinking about it is making me feel better).
I can excuse the couple in back of us who had never been to a concert before (date between a 45 year old guy and a 20 year old girl…), and who clammed up immediately on my giving him a “shhh”.
But the guy who was HUMMING Schubert’s Unfinished Symphony until I jabbed him in the leg with my program?
The guy who was talking to his twenty-something son in a stage whisper for half the show until I confronted him at intermission?
Seriously, people…I may have to stop going to classical concerts and go back to hard rock…it’s bad for my stress levels.
One reply sent me a link for tranquilizer darts that can be used in blowguns…hmmmm….
