The Robert Schrader posse leaves San Antone...

...which may very well have been my last show of the tour. I had planned to do California, but for a number of reasons will more than likely not do.

That said, my tour has ended on an amazing note. You've all seen the San Antonio setlist. I'm here to tell you that the energy was second to none. This was easily my favorite of 19 ADP shows and in my top 5 ever, no question. Absolutely no question. The show was so good that after the Take to The Sky (best version I've ever heard)-Full Anastasia-Butterfly-PGY stretch I was thankful for "Concertina," a song that normally bores me. I needed to catch my breath. This show was that good! I would almost say this is the best show of the tour overall, even though I've only seen 19 or the 70+ so far...

Without further adieu, here are videos of the four debuts. Apologies in advance RE: clipping of "Anastasia" (due to youtube's time limits) "Butterfly" (memory card issues), and rude audience members during "New Age"

Come in Houston--and Dallas

Sorry to lump both of these shows into one entry, but to be honest (a) the past 48 hours have been a non-stop cross-Texas driving clusterfuck and (b) the Dallas show wasn't, in my opinion, good enough to warrant its own blog entry, especially under those circumstances.

Santa was, of course, wonderful, in all her coked-out, raspberry-swirl, Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader glory. But Tear In Your Hand? Lust? Jackie? Horses? No thanks. Waaaaay too mellow for a Texas show.

Houston, on the other hand was wonderful. I ended up getting to do the Platinum VIP for this show at the last minute--and for free--due to Sakre's friend Elizabeth backing out of it for a very lame reason. Pictures of my nerdy interaction with Tori--where I asked, once again, for "Peeping Tommi," reminding her that I'd been requesting it since June, and also asking her to do "Not David Bowie" and to bring Pip out tomorrow night. yes, I know I'm a greedy bitch. I wasn't expecting much based on her reactions.

Well, two out of three requests granted so far. "Bowie"'s below. Sakre got "Tommi" as I was a wreck during. You'll probably here my gay-ass "thank you" on the bootleg when it's released in a couple hours.

On a side note, I'd just like to publicly vent about the fact that a certain person on Tori's crew has now made it apparent that he is only concerned with helping fans that are not really fans, people that travel across the country, never paying for tickets and always talking shit about about Tori & Co. and fucking her fans over any chance they get. My friends Joey, Kristen, and I were promised something for tonight, and when we asked for it, we were scolded for not being like these awful people.


Anyway, because of all this, many people at the Houston show probably noticed a large quantity of obese and rhythm-lacking fans dancing during the "Widow" remix and bouncing during "Bouncing". I know who you can blame!

Anyway, since SA's not being booted, I'll surely take more video of it. I need to go to bed now.
