Hey! So Warped kicked ass! Mike got to my house I'd say around 10, we got there 10:30. We were really far back in line but when Jordan got there, he found friends up at the front, and so we hopped up there with Jordan. Once we got sort of in, everyone ditched me so I could go get my shit at Will Call. Well, I went over to where people who were on the guestlist were suppose to go, and they were asking for people with IDs. So guess who I got to hand my ID to. Ben Harper from YC. He doesn't even check to make sure my name is on the list, he looked at my ID and was like, "YEA! You are on the list!" And we had a conversation for a few. He handed me my ticket and Press Pass. So when I got in, I found Mikey. We went and looked to see who was playing at what time and such. So here is who I can remember who I saw and I am pretty sure that this is the order I saw them in.|
Billy Talent So I ran into Ehren and Leah and we went and saw Billy Talent together. We got our asses into the front of the mosh pit. They were fucking sick. Ben's fly kept unzipping so every once and a while you'd see him zip it up. Which I thought was funny. Leah had never heard Billy Talent before and she liked them alot, so I am gonna burn her a copy of their cd.
Sugarcult By the time Sugarcult played and got set up, I had bought a $10 camera with 12 exposures. Haha. I expected the pits to be hardcore but they weren't. If I would have known that I would have broughten my own camera. Sugarcult kicked ass. I got some pics of them. The ones of Tim didn't turn out all that good cuz the damn sun was shining through this crack which fucked up the pic.
All American Rejects We really didn't stick around too long to listen to AAR cuz Ehren was getting hot. So we listened to like maybe 2 songs. Too many people wanted to see them.
Taking Back Sunday We really didn't stick aroudn to see much of TBS either. Alot of fucking people were watching TBS too. But from what I heard, they rocked.
Story Of The Year I felt bad for Ehren cuz she was getting so heated and shit but she told me to go on. So I went moshing to SOTY. I went from being in the dead ass back all the way up to the front. I pushed my way through a lot of fucking people. And the pit was sick. I had so much fun moshing in that one. I got kicked in the head alot too. I had once put my hands up, with my camera in my hand to keep this fatty from dropping on me, and she kicks my camera out of my hand, I went diving for that shit. Haha. I got lots of pics of SOTY too. At one point, the drummer throws a stick into the crowd. I had that bitch in my hand and the dude behind me reached for it and knocked the shit out of my hand and some people started fighting over it. It was two teen guys and an old dude. Finally the old dude pushed the other kid off and was like, "just let him have it." But SOTY was fucking insane! I loved them so much!
Yellowcard As soon as SOTY cut their music, YC wasted no time in beginning. So everybody from the SOTY pit moved like 20 ft to the right to YC's stage. This was my 3rd time seeing Yellowcard. And they never cease to amaze me. In the middle of their performance, they told us to make a circle pit, just like at every YC concert I've been to that they have said to do. And not too many females were in it, so I jumped in for a few and took a couple of swings at some people. It was fun! Hehe. Then I moved back up to the front to mosh. Once again, I got kicked in the head several times. I have like lumps on my head. LoL. But it was worth it.
Anti-Flag We listen to a bit of their stuff cuz Ehren likes them. They aren't necessarily my type of thing, but they weren't bad.
Rufio I listened to them for a bit. They were ok. I don't think I really care for them live.
Motion City Soundtrack Motion City Soundtrack were tyte. I felt bad that I was too tired and over heated to mosh because I really wanted to but I didn't have the energy too. I would have probably passed out. So I called the old man to get ready to come get me. Which you can't blame me, I was moshing and shit alot and it was over 100 degrees. So..
The Casualities We listened to them on my way out. They were pretty tyte. I liked their hair. It was off the chain. LoL.
After that, my old man got me. We dropped my camera off to develop the pics. But let me tell you a bit more about Warped before I get into the after math. Me and Ehren talked to tons of hott guys out promoting their bands and shit. We'd have like 20 min conversations with them and stuff. Then we finally found the Takeover tent after they called me and told me where it was at. We couldn't find it. LoL. But we finally did after a little bit of help from Solomon. So he gave me and then Ehren too some autographed cds to walk around and sell. It was Where We Stand signed by the 3 original members, Ben, LP, and Sean. They were going for $10. Ehren was able to pawn 2 of them off onto some of her friends we ran into. We met Lauren's bo Rami. He seemed nice. And we ran into Billy Talent at their tent. They signed a hat for me and I got a pic with them. In the pic it looks like Ben is about to touch my boob. LoL. Then Ehren got them to autograph a cd. We were walking around, and I just happened to look at the 93.3 tent, and guess who I saw, Sean from YC! And when I pointed him out to Ehren, she freaked. We got a pic of him too. Then we passed the drummer of Sugarcult and I pointed him out to Ehren and she was all like, "Whoa!" It was pretty sweet how we kept seeing these dudes walking around and shit. And we did some other shit. I spent $38 out of the 60 I had. My Dad was impressed. I bought a Billy Talent hat, camera, and 2 cds. So I did good. So after my Dad picked me up, we got my pics developed. They turned out decent enough for a cheap (not in price) camera. Then around 9 something, I got a really depressing phone call confirming a suspicion (sp?) I had about a comment that was left on my Xanga page about Joey. Joey has supposedly ran away. He has been missing since Friday. I made this flyer thing today. If anyone knows anything about where Joey is, contact his family or one of us close friends of his! And if you are a friend or what not of Joey, please post this flyer in your Journal or sites!
Because I wanna get hat flyer out, that is the only reason this post is going public on my LJ site.
So I had to go into work at 11 this morning. I had to run Rita's till for a bit this morning until Daniel got mine set. Then I got my own. I met the new girl today. She seemed nice. I think she has a thing for Daniel. It's funny. Work was good though. During my lunch break, Ryan asked if I had been to the beach or something just as everyone fucking person under the sun has, and I said no I was at Warped. And he goes, "Bitch! I had to work!" I laughed. I didn't get off until like 6 because Daniel forgot I was suppose to get off at 5:30. He apologized a couple of times. LoL. I didn't even know that it was 6 until someone told me. LoL. I gave Mike Dunn a ride home. Then went on an errand to find shit for a cake my mom made. Then I dropped it off and went to Patty's to give her a Get Well card. Then came home, ate, and then here I am. Well, I am sick of typing this. So Bye!
