i can't handle it when the interviewer has to insert himself into every question to let us know he was there. we know he's cool too, right?
The first show I went to with you guys was the first Blackout, and there were maybe 50-75 people there, depending on the night, mostly comprised of locals.
How about some specific anecdotes? Not even music related, but like, the first night I hung out with everybody was when Joanie and Timmy and Lyle Sheraton and Melanie all fell into the hottub together, covered in bubbles.
And my neighbor pulling a gun on the dude from Plastic Letters. It was like 4:30 in the morning, and cops had already been called and kicked everybody out, and my neighbor started yelling . . . . All my neighbors wanted to kill me, even Bill and Lisa in Cococoma.
Ryan and Wendy [Monitors] did that for me 2 years ago when I lived in that back apartment, after that same Blackout afterparty, and having to work the next morning, they even mopped. I hadn't even mopped since I moved there.
I stopped going to shows when I moved here, which is the big reason why I didn't meet you guys until 2001. When I first moved here, I was so bored, because people just stood there, and I'd try to have a really good time and dance, and everybody looked at me like I had the fucking plague.
