A Lame Story From My Teenage Life

This is a blog where people tell stories. I told one of mine. Read about it on Paperthinwalls.com. Hint: it involves a famous, now deceased live music venue.

A real story from your real life? This is fantastic!! I'm in shock here!

Questions:

1. What was the band name?
2. Did you just sing or play an instrument?
3. Where are the pictures???

This better be real.

Not to be preachy, but maybe things would have been different if you had just been yourself. Those music industry people can see right through a poser.

I hope this story,like the dog euthanization one,isn't true. I don't think my heart could take another beating.

Ok, seriously. You need to incorporate a Ramones song into one of your performances someday, somewhere. Prove that you can wear a pair of jeans patterned with the British flag just as well as the next guy.

You have a cool voice. Lots of vibrato and strength. Make it happen, "Punk". Make it happen.

I had some "Punky Brewster" (that's the derivative of Punk. You knew that...)friends but were secretly afraid of all the shaved heads, neon hair color, and safety-pinned flesh. Which I suppose, was the whole idea - to give off that "Leave me alone, you aren't like me. I cut you!" air. It worked. Until Devo came out and made us all laugh, that is.

Thanks for sharing. Love it.

I would have happily been one of your 10 friends seeing you at CBGB's. I was all about my Crass and Virgin Prunes in high school, went to every local punk gig we could get into. Thought we were incredibly original for not being preppy or stoner-rockers. Both of us. Lots of black eyeliner, too many earrings on only one ear and shaved heads. It looked better on him.
But then I fell for Adam Ant and Spandau Ballet and DuranDuran and that was it for me. Loser.

That is one of the saddest stories I have ever heard. Like, if you wrote a book of stories like that, you could totally have a picture of yourself wearing a beret and crying on the cover and call it "The Saddness Pit" or something.

P.S. Are you really coming out with a book as per your "about" section? Or dare I say, THREE?!

Therese

Thanks for sharing that. I'm just trying to get my head around your statement about not being liked much. I hope us fans have collectively remedied the situation for you.

aww!

Dick Inyerhole

That was a really great story, and I enjoyed reading it.

This is off-topic but I'm pretty sure the Dallas Observer reviewer wants to get it on with you.

Lisa Q

I'm British and not sure if I should know who you are or not :S
But hey, you sound pretty cool

Yeah, this is lame indeed but very helpful for the future.

I must say that the story you are trying to tell has nothing concerning this blog. This sentence indeed is very lame.
