Normal I am way too possessive over my favourite artists.

Today at box class, during the cool down/stretch part of the class, our instructor played "Trouble".
I got that little girl, high school crush butterflies in my belly when I heard the first piano keys played. There were some sighs heard amongst the girls, as if to say, *swoon I love Coldplay. 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?

Oh, and in case you didn't think I was screwed up enough, I really hate it when my favourite artists get popular. Like Coldplay has with their second record. I mean, I am happy for them, but again, with the possessiveness, it me to have to share them with others.
Now they are playing in arenas. I miss the good old days where they played cozy theatres or clubs and weren't played at exercise classes.

i thank you for sharing chris w/ me angel.

i know what you mean though. i get the same way about U2 and Coldplay.

however, Coldplay at kickboxing class? that is an odd choice even for cool down.


i had tears in my eyes and butterflies in my stomach last night when coldplay came on to play at the grammy's.

i even corrected my mother tonight

mom: "so, i saw coldplay play last night, he is really good!"

me: "mom, you mean they are really good! Chris is not Coldplay, there are 3 other guys that make up that band!"

my mom thinks Chris is scrawny and needs a tan! lol i have to tell her to be nice and leave her future son-in-law alone!

I have a similar problem......

The definition of a "big" or "huge" fan.

I LOVE U2. My friends know it. Yet, I realize I am not as near as a huge fan as some of the folks here......

But when I hear people saying they are a "huge" fan of U2 here in the Twin Cities, I kinda blow them off - mainly becuase I haven't seen them post here.

Cute!

My friend asked me today, if Chris really was my type... as if to *cough* comfort him that nahhh, she doesn't go for pasty skinny English boys does she? I gave it thought, and I shedded dear Chris of his RockStar satus, and well... the results came out the same. It's the piercing blue eyes.

And YES, Chris is NOT Coldplay. That is happening waaaaaaay too much now.

yes those blue eyes are enough to have me go weak in the knees. i would be attracted to him if he wasn't a rockstar. i mean today i was leaving the office and this man walked passed me who had a similar look to chris and i stopped in my tracks and stared at him and smiled. he smiled back and walked into the building. chris look a like working in my building...

anyway, yes Chris is not Coldplay, i hate when a single band member is made the only person in a band because of the media.

i.e. Bono = not U2, Gwen = not No Doubt, etc...


and the guy i met a few weeks ago, i had a thrown down U2 trivia match with him because i thought he was treading dangerous waters with me by saying he likes U2. i won, but he did prove to be a fan.

I'm the opposite...I want everybody to share my love.

I remember a customer at one of my old jobs...he walked in wearing a U2 shirt. I bombarded him with so much U2 talk that I think I scared him.

Every so often, I get a PM or an email from somebody here saying that they like Ryan Adams too, and it makes me all .

i can see why you were ticked though, since the other girls acted a little too teeniebopper to be liking a serious band like coldplay. (while i'm not a fan of theirs, i will admit i wouldn't call them pop or anything the way pop music is nowadays. they're pop as in popular, but not pop as in mainstream.)

lucky for me i don't really have to worry about "sharing" my favourite bands. aside from U2, everyone else i like is unpopular. duran duran, japan, most people are more like "who?" than .

I'm like Bonochick...I love it when someone is into the same music as me. But I can kinda see your anger too angel...it's like the people who think JT is U2's first album
...and fairweather fans, they bug me.

Again, your Ryan Adams addiction stems from me. Did you realize that? That's why I was so jealous when you and April got to see him and I didn't!

Hehehe...

This is true.


So, the next time anyone needs to place the blame, PM Kristina!

I've thought that many times!!! "you're not cool enough to like them," then I realized I was being a little bitchy and snobbish.
