Expectations of Reality

In progress…
Expectations color your view of reality
Expectations help us decide to spend the time/money/effort to experience something
These expectations get in the way of experiencing the reality in front of you.

Taking stock of going to concerts:
You want to hear stuff that you’re familiar with, so that you don’t feel lost
The artist has probably heard the same thing a million times,
Oftentimes, the artists don’t want to do the greatest hits anymore.

Sometimes the albums are a let down, sometimes the live shows.

There are a few bands that I’ve seen a lot in a short period of time, enough to see the differences between shows, know what they always play, and sort of know what to expect.
Of course, these bands tend to be good enough that I consider their live shows worth goign to because they are significantly different than their recorded music.
