So, I just typed up an lj post & went to post it & got an "oops" msg. Wtfh? Let's see if I can remember it.
DAN WHITESIDES IS TOTALLY TINY! HE WOULD TOTALLY FIT IN THE TRUNK! I was actually gonna tweet yesterday about how we were cleaning out the trunk so we could kidnap a drummer, but I figured it could possibly misconstrued. Or properly construed, whatever. (Also, I have no idea how to spell "construed" lol)
I'm not quite sure why snarkyrainbow
and I don't have a Dan sandwich (b/c he would totally fit!), but I guess it's for the best. I wouldn't wanna deprive those of you who haven't seen them yet of Dan. Even if Dan the Man Who Can cannot
toss a drumstick in the air and catch it 2/3 of the time. Although, at the Dallas show we watched him break a drumstick, toss it over his shoulder, and grab another one to keep going without ever missing a beat. HOT. Fucking drummers, idek.
I'm not gonna go into actual concert recaps, but I'll hit the highlights?
Got to hang out with wendy
on Thursday. And her puppies. I really wish she lived closer to me or vice versa because hanging out with her is always fabulous and she is the awesomest of the awesome. Also, she got a call with a job offer like right as she was coming to pick me up, so YAY WENDY! And I find myself saying "interesting" as an acknowledgement statement, which is totally a wendy-thing. :)
We went to lunch with snarkyrainbow
and her sister shamrocks15
, and then later I met up with them to go get lost in Dallas before we found the HoB.
I still think Drive A is adorable. Even more adorable was the fact that their grandparents were at the Dallas show. Seriously, cutest thing EVER.
I have nothing amusing or positive to say about The Almost other than the fact that they soundtracked the tambourine.
THE USED. Yeah, I love them. <3333 Um. Quinn's hair was all sticking up everywhere and there was some red lighting on the stage that made him look like he had little devil horns. He is precious, btw. Um. There was Bert creeping shamrocks15
out with his crazy Michael Jackson hat. And Jepha being hot sticky sex. Or, you know, being Jepha
. And Quinn quinncerting himself into the Dan\Jepha OTP, which made snarkyrainbow
all "Back the fuck off, Allman!" and highly amused me.
We were gonna stalk the buses afterward but there was this random older man there who had skipped bail to bring his daughter to the concert & get her barrier. And he was talking to his girlfriend on the phone, trying to get other people to tell her to fuck her husband and come see him instead.
Oh, and before the show we saw Dan and some of the other guys playing kickball behind the venue. :)shamrocks15
is pretty damn awesome, I'm glad to have met her. Praise Jesus! Also, there were
of them motherfuckers, I shit you not!
Friday, me and snarkyrainbow
drove from Dallas to Houston (without getting lost!) and plotted (hahaha) ridiculous fic (SHUT UP AND TAKE OFF YOUR PANTS!) and talked about fic that needs to be finished and talked about other random shit. And we got passed by Drive A in their little van. In my head that totally means they had to hang out in Dallas to have lunch with their grandparents and then haul tail to make it to Houston on time.
Met up with irisgirl12000
!). And shutyourface
joined us later. We found seats in the balconey with an awesome view. Drive A is still adorable, fyi. They aren't a band that would have ever caught my interest if I hadn't seen them live, but I really adore them right now.
Bert McCracken is CRAZYCAKES and TINY and ADORABLE. Seriously, he reminds me of one of those little yappy dogs that things they're big deal. He told us about his itchy balls, and did a little Michael Jackson dance, and told everyone that if they didn't have the album to go out and steal that shit from Walmart & say he said it was all cool, and was generally adorable and entertaining. And he let Quinn talk which... ahaha, no. Oh Quinn. <3 Oh, and he had Dan drumming out random shit. That was pretty amusing. Dan and Jepha are still hot. Color me surprised.
After the show, we waited for M&G. Heather bought one of the tour album download card things & I still had mine from the Baltimore show. Only one person was allowed per card, so snarkyrainbow
had to wait outside for us & I told her I'd get my card signed for her. We were told they had black and silver sharpies so Heather was going to get them to sign her hoodie. So we go in and Quinn had a black sharpie & was signing my card with it & we asked him and he was like "no, we're out of silver ones" even though there were like six on the table and Heather asked if they could make their autographs stand out and Bert just jumped into their conversation and was like "sure we can make them stand out!" (and Dan tossed Quinn a silver sharpie & Quinn was like "it's probably out, it's only good for like 30 signings." Oh my god. Quinn, I'm fondly amused of you being a grumpy difficult bitch with an adorable grin, and also proud of you for making complete coherent sentences.) and so I moved on to Jepha, who was sitting on the other end of the table and we were making small talk while he signed my card & he was like "you're missing a couple people on here" b/c I only had Quinn & his autographs. So I told him Heather was a line jumper & he was like "Damn you, Heather!" And Heather had no idea what we were talking about, she just heard us say her name, so that was even more amusing.
We also caught up with Dan outside by the buses for pictures. HE IS REALLY SO SO TINY! OMG! snarkyrainbow
told him not to drink in her picture, and Dan had to tell me how to work the camera because I'm retarded. And then irisgirl12000
& I got pictures too.
And we went for food & went home to irisgirl12000
's house and snarkyrainbow
& I were acting like giggly 13yo girls and also tweeting each other from the same bed.
Okay, now we're having fangirl hang times and I'm gonna go steal eckerlilas
's baby from vic_ramsey
and hold him. :)
