A friend of mine dated a guy who was a Marty Willson-Piper (extreme right side of the photo at the botton of this post) wannabe in the 80's. That guy's now a balding, married, lawyer and member of the Kiwanis. So much for the MWP fetish.

On the plus side, he's undoubtably more financially stable than MWP.

Seriously though, I don't see any fucking problem with wearing your favourite bands tee shirts during one of their concerts.

While I personally dont/wouldnt wear a shirt of the same band, I never really notice or care if others are. Do what you please, you filthy sleeze.

T-shirts as Ice breakers!
No one talked to me about my Damien Rice t-shirt at the U2 show. And it's also the coolest t-shirt I have.

Someone did, however, use the amazingly clever opening line: "So, are you a big U2 fan?"

I ran into a friend yesterday from Colombia ---hadn't seen him in months--who said to me in Spanish, "I can see you're better now because you used to be skinny and now you're not so skinny" and I had to take a deep breath and calmly tell myself, "That's a compliment with his generation where he comes from, just say thank you" instead of what I wanted to say, which is what you just said.

Geez, and I couldn't have put on more than 5 lousy lbs.

It's common for people to say things like that in Japan also.

I hadnt seen some people I knew for about a year or so when I lived in Japan, the first thing they said to me when I saw them was, "You've gotten fat!!", with huge smiles on their faces (like it was a good thing). Needless to say, I upped the exercise regimen that night.

I did actually squeeze in an extra pilates class this week, lol. But mostly I'll be avoiding him, running the other way when I see him in the grocery store, like I used to do when I was 13 with my aunts who always always always had to comment on my weight, one way or the other.

Note to single men: do not comment on American women's weight to their faces. Ever.

Anyway, t-shirts

i went to one of the Anahiem 2005 shows, and i wore that Acthung Baby shirt with the 3 logoes (face, star, car). it doesn't have "U2" printed on it, but it is a U2 shirt, and since its from the AB era only the cooler U2 fans knew what it was. . . i think that's fine to do

I would have said something...


I CANNOT believe someone stole my "U2" line.

One of my columns from newspaper senior year was about how people are wearing shirts like that and don't even know the music they're showing off. Maybe if I get the time, I can type it up on here. People seemed to enjoy it
