You can tell how she has to move pretty far away before you hear a major volume difference. There's also very little processing here otherwise (no reverb/delay) unlike the SNL performance, so you can hear her actual voice even clearer.
Oh yeah, I can hear what you mean.

That's one of the few shows I've been to that was so powerful it seemed to generate that same kind of transcendental connectedness I used to get from church when I was a kid.
I'm glad you had a good time!

That kind of "connectedness" you mention...I don't think I've ever felt that once before. I guess that's why I've always been kind of a loner.

Sorry to hear about your dental troubles! I've been lucky in that I've never had any dental problems in my life, not even a cavity.
Man I knew it was going to be a clusterfuck when I finally went in for a checkup about a month ago and the dentist looked at my teeth and straight up said "Wow this is weird!". When I went in last week he told "Man these cavities are even worse than I thought!". He's kind of a goofball like that. He thinks I might just have naturally poor enamel, though I did let things get out of hand for these last few years between poor hygiene and not visiting the dentist when I should have and that's my own fault more than anything.

Still, I'm getting myself back on the right track. I had another visit yesterday and I have at least three more in the coming weeks- including a root canal. What a joy that will be!

I've always been a loner too, but it's not really a kind of individual connection, more like a cosmic one. The kind of thing people report when they try certain drugs is pretty similar, I'm guessing. That's why I love music as it's the only art-form that can do that for me, even if it's really rare.

Man, that sucks, but good luck! I hope it's as painless as possible and everything's fine afterward. Though I haven't had dental problems I've had my share of health problems, and they seem to be much harder to ameliorate than dental problems.
