Let's see, one of my favorite stories is going to a Breeders show in Olympia in '93 (actually I was working the door for the promoter, stamping hands so I could get in free) and into the empty lobby of the theatre walks Kurt Cobain. I was too shy and lame to say anything, but he was very small and his eyes were paralyzingly blue. Poor Kurt. No, I didn't get to stamp his hand, or talk to him.
One of the last times I smoked pot was in 1994, and it was generously provided by Billie Joe from Green Day while we watched "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" in his very crappy apartment. I declined to use the four-foot tall bong, however. I was definitely not hard core enough for that.
And if anyone remembers Rancid, I used to go over to their bass player's house on Thursday nights to watch "E.R." Lord, that show has been on FOREVER, hasn't it?
There are a bunch of other stories, mainly involving bands that have been gone too long for anyone to remember.
the all-american rejects, fall out boy, ok go, frou frou, imogen heap, the shins, kanye west, beyonce, the postal service, stars, halifax, hellogoodbye....and similar sorts

I've been a fan of them for like 2 years), Bright Eyes, Death Cab, Panic! At the Disco (omgggggggggg, one of the best bands ever!), Green Day (fan since I was 6 or 7, lol), The Killers (saw them in concert!), Tegan and Sara (also saw them the same day as The Killers), stuff like that.
And of course I still love my *NSYNC and all of the other pop that I listened to, if a song comes on and I remember the words, I'll start singing and dancing, lol.

Dani said:Oh man, I love just about everything.
Cursive, Death Cab for Cute ( and the postal service!!), Waiting for Autumn, .hopesfall. , Mew ( SO sweet and catchy), Coheed & Cambria, NFG, As I Lay Dying, Emery, Hellogoodbye, Further Seems Forever ( old stuff when Chris Carraba sang for them), Emery, JOURNEY, The Rocket Summer, and Thursday ( I actually have their dove symbol as a tattoo!).
And I also love pop stuff like Kelly Clarkson, Ashlee Simpson, and Black-Eyed Peas. :-P
Dani said:haha. It's bc Conor is such a pretty boyyyyyyyyyyy, he attracts the wrong crowd. :-P
I've actually seen him live, he has a great/interesting live show.
( he drinks.... a lot.)
I also wanted to force feed him a sandwhich, poor boy.
amanda said:ooo post a pic of the tattoo! i thursday, always have, and the couple dove tattoos i've seen have been gorgeous. i think my favorite was the dove with 'we will rise' written under it.
Dani said:haha, I would- but it's on my lower hip
It's really cute though, it's the dove on the cover of war all the time, and I got it in a henna color. It's my one and only tattoo ( TOO painful to do again.)
Lol, but I'm not one of those scary teenies that you see at shows, I listened to them before I saw how hot Joel is, lol. Its kind of funny- I saw GC the night before Chronicles came out (I won tickets) and I actually felt tall even though I'm like 5'3, lol.amanda said:lol you can't like bright eyes and good charlotte at the same time, I WON'T LET YOU!!!
