but she also kinda has a crush on him and wanted me to help her impress him. i took this as an opportunity to help her make a fool of herself (not that mean, but ya know...) so I listed a few bands for her like goldfinger, ataris, dead kennedys, nofx, etc.... She tried to memorize them, but seriously messed them up ("what is it? dead roosevelts?")
she told him she liked blink 182 (apparantly the only "punk" band she knows) and he made fun of her. i told her how to redeem herself. i told her to explain to him that blink 182 went more pop after dude ranch and that cheshire cat was the best cd.
anyway, so i'm talking to naomi here(who doesnt know jamie...they live in separate towns, and have nothing to do with each other), and a few hours ago, she asked me to talk to this guy to, i dunno, test the waters or something. so we (me and stephen, the guy she wanted me to talk to) got to talking and i asked "so what kinda music you into?" he answered: "punk, punk, and a little more punk" So, music being my favorite thing to talk about, I got excited. Me and stephen talked for about a half an hour, and had a pretty good conversation.
it turns out he was at the DK concert i went to AND the UL show! and he wanted to go to the GC show but he was grounded....god, i love this guy. :-)
about 15 minutes ago, naomi IMs me with
Her: ya got to get me familar with some thoes bands lol
Her: some thoes punk bands
Now, naomi's not *nearly* as bad as jamie. jamie hasnt heard of *anyone*. naomi has at least the basics down (i think). but i could tell jamie about, like bad religion or.....anyone that hasnt been on mtv. i mean ANYONE (but then again, thats most of my school besides like 5 people).
Its just so weird that within a week, I have two of my friends wanting the exact same thing from me: my music knowledge to impress a guy that they have a crush on. dont get me wrong, i'm more than happy to help both of them. i love being helpful. especially when it comes to music.
i've decided i could talk about music for hours and hours with someone if i didnt care about making a fool out of myself. :-)
