Lord, someone else who knows how I feel...

I had this conversation with Brettig the other day..how I hate it when my favourite artists get popular. Not that I want them not to be famous, or not to be successful, but it's so much NICER when they play small shows (I guess I'm selfish. I want good seats!)

...The terrible thing is when people mention a band like U2 or Coldplay now I always find myself thinking, "Hmmph. They're not REAL fans..." Unless, of course, they can prove it (naming a B-Side, admitting to owning albums other than The Best of, JT, or AB, ATCYCLB, etc)....throwing in some trivia...I met a guy who said U2 is great! WOWY is my favourite song." And I was like, "Poser."
(He actually WAS a poser. He didn't even know that U2 sang One or Beautiful Day!)

I feel like a snob. I begin to think of them as 'my band.'

And then I come here and have a severe reality check. Although, here, it seems alright to share bands. The outside world however...what do they know?

It's scary how you can tell who's being a poser....

Like I was talking about wanting to go see the rock hall exhibit to this girl at work and she was like "Aaaww I love them!" and I just knew that she was just saying it. So I asked her if she liked the new song (Hands) and she's like, they don't have a new song and gave me a "talk to the hand" look.

Thank god I'm not the only one, lol.

My friend Heather became a sort of U2 fan because of All I Want is You and the song October (she heard the Best Of version with October tacked on). Now she blames me because I influenced her. She's a big Genesis/Phil Collins fan and I'm always trying to get her to buy a U2 album (she just has a few mp3s) and she's always trying to get me to buy a Genesis album.

I'm surrounded by people with crappy music taste in real life, so more power to me. I'm the official guy with best musical taste in my school, but that doesn't amount to much when everyone listens to Linkin Park, Avril Lavigne, Slipknot, or all three.

Quite true! My father would still like to kick your ass for making me become a Ryan fan because he is sick of Ryan. For awhile, I was getting a package in the mail almost everyday with a Ryan boot after I did some trades, and Dad was like, "Tell those people to stop sending you stuff! Every package pains me!"

I have no burner...my friend Matt has a burner, but a good chunk of the boots I have came from the same girl, and Matt hasn't found a way to burn them...he said they were burned weird.

I'm trying to find some shows that he can burn so I can have a few copies to give out.

Instead of feeling joy that others enjoy this great band. I got a little and felt jealous, like how dare they like my band. As if I own them or something.
I am a freak.

In case you were wondering I don't feel that way when people here talk about them, because you guys know about music. See, IMO, everyone outside of my 'friends' circle and or this board, know nothing about good music. This I realize is wrong too. Oh well.

Freaks of the world unite. Who else gets possessive too?
I do that too with U2! I actually get annoyed when people who are casual fans at best will mention a U2 song they like. Cool! I thought I was the only one!

That is the most annoying thing! And when people have met the band and gotten autographs and then act like they're best friends with the band. Or the people who push you out of the way at concerts so they can scream "I love you!" at the band, and in between songs they say things like, "What song was that?"

I'm possessive about a lot of bands.

I know!! Like this girl at the last Coldplay concert that pushed me out of the way (as we were running down the steps) and then got to the front of the stage, looked up at Chris, and yelled, "Guy! Marry me Guy! "
