Many years ago, a friend of mine and I had a debate about how much we would be willing to pay to be able to travel back in time and see Led Zeppelin live during their heyday. My friend went so far as to say he would cut off one of his hands, which I thought was a little extreme. But anyway, we both agreed that we would pay mucho dinero for the opportunity to experience a Zeppelin show. As a bonus, their concerts were usually crazy long…3-1/2 hours (or more!) of pure rocking out. That’s some pretty epic bang for your time-travelling buck, I’d say.
I was thinking about our conversation the other day, and I realized that one of the great things about having a blog is that with a little imagination — and a bit of photoshopping — you can totally insert yourself into any fantasy scenario you want. The sky is the limit, my friends! With that in mind, I present to you my first installment of what will henceforth be known as ‘Wishful Skillin’. After all, you can’t make it happen if you don’t dream about it in the first place!
If you are reading this and thinking to yourself ‘MSkillz, time travel is indeed a beautiful dream, but sadly you can’t actually go back and catch a Zep show’…well, take a look at this picture of their legendary performance at 1970′s Bath Festival:
Front row, of course! Why not? After all, it’s my fantasy.
Let me know…what’s your Wishful Skillin’?
