There’s just a few things I think that you should know. Those words at best were worse than teenage poetry. Fragment ideas and too many pronouns. Stop it, come on. You’re not making sense now. You can't make them want you. They're all just laughing. Literate and stylish. Kissable and quiet. Well that's what girls dreams are made of and that's all you need to know. You have it or you don't. You have it or you don't. You have it or you... You see how much time you're wastin? You're coward of seperating...
Hmm... So, there's alot going on in this post, due to my lack of posting. If you're here just to see my Taking Back Sunday review, then scroll down. You'll find it. :)
Anyways, Thursday I had off from school which was pretty sweet. I did nothing because the wind knocked out my power for like hours. Not too fun. And, also our peach tree fell over. Not too cool. It was also wicked cold. Umm.. Thursday night. What a trip. Well, I went into Philly with my parents to see my sister dance at her school and to take her out for her birthday day. During her piece she effed up her knee pretty bad. She was crying and shit, and in a lot of pain. When I was backstage, some dancer guy stole my Perks of Being a Wallflower book, and explained to me how much he loved it and how it related to him. I was a little overwhelmed. haha... Well, we (me, Tacy and Dougie ) left to go back to her apartment. He had to carry her. It was sad. From there we met back up with my parents and my brother Jakey. We went to eat where we also met up with my brother Andy. And, we ate and "shot the shit" for awhile, well like three hours I think. One would be able to tell that it was a special occasion because Jake wore pants. haha... Well, if you knew Jake, you would know that he wears shorts all year around. Our waiter kept shaling the chair that my sister had her leg up on, but it didnt cause her too much pain due to the painkillers she took. So, Me, Tacy and Doug went back to her house, while my parents dropped off Jake at his place. They came and picked us up, and we took Tacy and Douglas to Jefferson (emergency room). Then, Helen called me and I talked to her the whole way home, and then for like another hour-hour and a half when I was at home. The girl never lets me sleep! haha jay kay.
Well, it turns out that she has a really bad sprain, and she probably wont have to repeat the semester which is a good thing because it's her last year.
TAKING BACK SUNDAY KICK IT TO THE MOON AND BACK. ZOOOOM!
So, Friday... Oh man... I think that was the longest day of my life. All during school I was all like "Woo-hoo! Taking Back Sunday." And, that made people laugh at me. Well, Rach informed me that she wasnt going to go, which made things hectic, but oh well. Me and Helen asked a bunch of kids to go, but no one could. Anyway, we worked things out and went.
So, as soon as we got out of the car we found Jackie, so we cut in line with her and her buddies. Well, we got in and waited a little for Moneen to come on. They were pretty awesome, but I expected more I guess. Maybe it was because I knew what was coming after them. Kids were pysco and decided to rock out to the stero between sets. Who the hell does that??
Finally.... Taking Back Sunday came on. It's funny because all these people are keep on asking me if I'm okay because I'm so short, and then they see that I can take care of myself and they're like "woow." Haha.. TBS was fucking amazing. They're knew stuff sounds better than ever. Each time I see them they just get tighter and more effin amazing! The crowd was crazy. I seriously think that was the best crowd ever, and it was definately the best time I saw Taking Back Sunday.
I was about to flip shit on the guys who were keep on yelling "HEY WHERE'S JOHN? WHERE'S SHAUN?" or "YEAH, BREAKING PANGAEA IS AWESOME" or "GO STRAYLIGHT RUN!" and shit like that. I mean, all of you who know me know that I definately have nothing against Shaun or John or Straylight at all. I love them. ::WORSHIP x CORE:: But you dont do that. It's just wrong and not amusing. Sooo many people were shooting them the dirtiest looks. But, they really didn't stop. They went on for the whole entire set.
And, THE MIC TRICKS ARE LOOKING HOTTER THAN EVER. Yes, I dont care what anyone says. They're hot. Adam broke the mic though. Haha... Silly boy. haha... "Hey, what's wrong with my mic?" Tech people: "You broke it." Adam: "oh, awesome."
They played Timberwolves. I mean I knew they would, but its my favorite song of allll time. So, seeing it live is quite possibly the most amazing thing in my whole entire life. It was kicking. Seeing it live, and hearing Adam sing it live just made me realize a lot (more) shit.
Right after the second to last song, I got out and went to the bathroom to see if I was missing the chunks of hair that I felt I was. I wasnt which is a good thing. haha... I watched the rest of the set from the back. Again, they were amazing. So, from there I went to the FYE table to get in line for the meet and greet. You had to buy the CD because you needed to get the wrist band to get in line, and the only way of getting the wrist band was to buy the CD. Oh well, not a bad thing. I guess you really didnt need to, but I was like one of the first people there, so the guy made sure that I did. Urr.. haha... Anyway, the band came in and the girl in front of me was like flipping out. cough cough ::teenie-bopper:: cough cough I got up to the booth and...
Adam: "Hey, I'm Adam." Me: "::haha:: I know... The set was amazing! Can you sign this for me?" Adam: "Thanks so much! Sure." That's when I noticed my scarf I had in my hand. Me: "Hey, my mom made this for me last year. She makes me a new one every year. I want you to have this." Adam: "Serious? No, no! I cant take it! You're mom made it for you." Me: "Right, but you should still have it. I want you to." Adam: "Thanks, thank you so much. I was actually looking in a store at scarfs. Now, I dont have to buy one." Me: "Thats awesome. I just want to tell you that your dedication to this all is why I want to go into music business." Adam: "Really? Wow. How old are you?" Me: "16." Then, he shook my hand again. Him: "Thanks a lot." Me: "Thank you!" The FYE man then made me move on. So, then I went to Mark and Eddie and they signed my CD book, and I talked to them for like a minute or two, and just told them how amazing the set was and how great they were. They thanked me and I moved on to Fred and Matt. This was my first time meeting them. I told them that I was really happy that they were in the band now, and how great the set was. Fred grabbed my hand and thanked me. It was pretty amazing... The whole experience.
I guess you have to know me, and how much Adam Lazzara is my hero. No, I dont "want to have his babies." haha. His dedication and engergy to the music and the band and fans and everything amazes me. A lot. Oh yeah, when I turned around after I was done at the signing booth, Adam was wearing my scarf. I was soo amazed and overwhelmed at the same time. I was in definate shock. I wish I had a camera. So, if anyone got picks with Adam and he's wearing the scarf send them my way. haha...
Despite, all the teenie-boopers in thier tube and halter tops, and the annoying girls rocking out OUTSIDE the pit, the evening was THE MOST AMAZING NIGHT EVER. My fifth time seeing TBS was the most delightful show ever. Now, I just have to wait and see how number six goes.
I believe that is it... If I remember something else, I will post again. :)
