Well, I don't know if it's dorky or not, but I've mutilated one of my belts to fit a ZooTV belt buckle onto it. Now I wear my fandom on my stomach,

Oh yeah, and back when I worked at the Herald Sun newspaper I had to draw an illustration of a rock star, and I deliberately made it look like Bono circa ZooTV.

12/31/1995, 9th grade. I had a freind over to spend the night. After a "fun night" with my parents, they took us to a store, where we each bought the recently released Passengers. We couldn't believe that there were no words on some of the songs! So my friend and I wrote lyrics and added extra guitar and keyboards to the songs on Passengers. Yeah, we had the equipment to do this with, amazingly. You should hear our beautiful lyrics to "Beach Sequence", which I retitled "Time" in my version. The guitar solo on "Slug" is great, and we did a rap on "Elvis". I always have a special attachment to that record. Not because of what it is, but because of what we did with it. What a bunch of geeks. We tried to do a Pavoratti solo on "Ito Okashi".....other kids were at new years eve parties getting their first blowjobs that night. But you know what they say..... when you make music, there's no telling what you can accomplish. However, with a blowjob, there is only one way it can be done, and you know the end result.

Also, one time on a marching band trip, my friend Rhett and I were blasting out U2 tunes, and someone yells "turn down that Tom Petty shit!" Then I tried to explain to them the difference between U2 and Tom Petty, and the guy said "who cares they both suck. Turn it off!" They wanted to sing hymns instead.

My friends and I had a band in the 9th grade, and we SUCKED. We played a gig at my friend's party, and we covered Last night on earth, Sunday bloody sunday, Desire, and........WIth or without you. No infinite guitar, no effects of any kind. It was disasterous. But we thought we were doing good, but everyone had to have thought we sucked ass!

Tearing that down when we had to move was SO hard....

I did that too! My brother was making fun of me about it. It looked really stupid when it wasn't lit because you couldn't tell what it was...but when you lit it it looked cool!

Hey, what instrument did you play? I was a boner myself.
I like Tom Petty, and we would sometimes play his music too. I think that people assumed that no matter what we played on that bus, they thought it was Tom Petty. But when someone knocks U2, my defenses go up. The raises on the back of my neck. My mind races to find things on which to return the feeling they have just brought on me!

I've got in a few fights. I take personal offence when someone insults any of my favourite bands.

I know you weren't talking to me specifically, but I played the trumpet for 10 years.

And I know what you mean...insulting U2 is probably the easiest way to piss me off!
