In Perpetuity Is A Long Time

7 Aug

“The purchase of this ticket and attendance at this concert will mean that you grant permission for your image to be visually recorded and broadcast in all media now known and to be invented, including the world wide web throughout the world in perpetuity.”

Celtic Woman, a  group of three Irish women singers and a fiddler, is taping a live concert at the Fox Theater in Atlanta, Georgia, during the first week of September.

“You must be seated by 7:15 pm EST” … That makes sense. I’d like to have everyone seated in church fifteen minutes before Mass begins on Sunday, too … “Please be prepared, as this is a TV and DVD filming, that the performance may stop and start at any given time” … Okay, that one is understandable. But hear this one … “You grant permission for your image to be visually recorded and broadcast in all media now known and to be invented … in perpetuity” … That’s a long time.

Knowing that I was in Ireland two years ago for the taping of Celtic Woman’s last DVD, some have asked, “Well, are you going?”

My standard, evasive McAnswer is, “Atlanta is closer than Dublin.”
