For the last 5 years or so it has been on my list to go see Joe Rogan. I’ve listened to many of his pod cast, although I’m not considered a true fan because it’s not that often that I tune in. But none the less, I know Joe to be a very intelligent person with lots of knowledge and to be someone that I think if I knew in real life I’d truly respect.
This morning I woke up and Facebook told me I had an event today. I thought, noooo I don’t and clicked on it just to see what it was I was going to be skipping out on today. But then I saw, it was Joe Rogan at the Toyota Center in Houston. I always say I need to stop taking Houston for granted and I’ve always wanted to see Joe, so I phoned a friend and plans were made.
We went to eat before and still ended up getting there 30 minutes early but it was okay because I was excited. I didn’t mind people watching and checking out all the other people there. Ladies, if you ever are looking for a place full of guys, Joe Rogan is where it’s at. I thought it was funny it was me who invited a guy. I think it normally goes the other way around.
First came out a “New and up coming comedian”. I can’t recall his real name because that was his go to catchy line, and it caught but I don’t know that it did him any good. Because I don’t know who to search up even if I really wanted to. I could figure it out if I really wanted to but that’s not the point I’m trying to make. He was funny, but not great.
Then came the man! He was just what I expected. Jeans, sneakers and button up shirt. I’d still like to know what all he carries in his pockets though. I see why he is a fan of fanny packs! His jokes were good, inappropriate, but truth. But here’s what I was really thinking almost the whole entire show.
Most of those other people there would like to talk to him simply because he is famous and he’s Joe Rogan. I don’t really care about that at all. But I’d totally rather sit down and have a conversation with this man than pay to watch another comedy show. Now, don’t get me wrong. I’m glad I went and it was good. But there’s more to this guy than just his comedy, thus his podcast. I’m just saying. If I could give him another 50 dollars for a conversation I think I’d be really willing to do that. I got to find a way to get in with these kinds of people to pick their brains. People like Joe are on to something.
He had jokes about cellphones and picked on people in the crowds holding them up videoing and living their lives through an electronic device. And it’s true, we all are guilty, me most definitely included. But one thing about me holds true. I suck at taking pictures and capturing moments. Even as an “up and coming blogger”.
So, if you ever read this Joe, I’ll have you know I only took one picture.
I’d kick myself in the ass if my legs worked, but they don’t.
But, just know, I soaked in the moment and took it all in. And maybe if there’s a next time, I’ll have some headphones on and be sitting next you.
I want to change lives too. I don’t know if I wanna be on a stage with that many people in the room. But one day, I’ll get to where I’m going.
Thanks Joe Rogan for a night of laughter mixed with a little bit of motivation.
