unlike most americans, i'm not pissed that canada beat us in hockey.
where do our american teams get a majority of our players? canada. and you know what? the us got a medal too!!11 shocking, i know. be proud our hockey team even MADE it that far because no one thought they could do it. in the end, it came down to two amazing teams and one just took the gold. nbd. i’m just happy that two of our flyers are coming home with gold medals, they deserved it.
my friend reminded me of this while we were out eating today and i figured i’d share idk. halloween 06, the $2 bill tour (30stm, head automatica, men women & children, pink spiders?? (idk i hated them) and cobra)(also, someone tried to tell me that cobra was never on this tour and i was like lol ya right i was there….unless it’s all a dream. ya know, it could have been a dream. anyway.)
all my friends had gotten there earlier in the day and like saw a sleepy gabe in pjs outside or some shit but basically he didn’t know i was coming or w/e. and i had to wait for dani to get to my house so we could hurry up and fly to the electric factory and not miss anything. so we get there, go inside, a few of my friends got right on the barricade and there were like 5 people between them and me and i’m like awesome i’m not close enough. so we were talking to this girl in front of us, major 30stm fan, covered in fake blood like they all were that night and we somehow got onto the topic of giving gabe the finger as he walked out onstage. but when he came out, i chickened out, but the girl in front of me still flipped him off. so then all i see is gabe pointing in my direction, grinning, and waving. and i thought he was doing it to be a smart ass to the chick flipping him off. but as soon as he did that, i kid you not when i say that like all 6 of my friends AND the girl that flipped him off turned around to me and were like HE SAW YOU!!1111 and i’m like wtf no that was not to me. but i guess everyone was right.
ok so during the show, my group of friends were the ONLY people who knew all of the cobra songs, and it kinda showed and gabe was super stoked about it. he started going on about how people should get the album (download it, buy it, whatever) and then points to us and he’s all “THESE GIRLS ALREADY HAVE IT” and i’m like duh because we’re fucking awesome.
so after we rocked out to some other bands (men women & children were dressed up like tony montana and bags of cocaine. perfection? yes, yes it is.) and we went outside to see if gabe was out or anything. and we got out there just as soon as he was walking out to a car (WITH A LUNCHABLE) and we’re like YO and he’s like HEY GUYS OMG I’M SO SORRY I CAN’T STAY IT’S MY FIRST ANNIVERSARY WITH MY GIRL AND I’M GOING BACK TO NEW YORK TO SPEND IT WITH HER. so we’re like that’s cool just go and do your thing. but don’t you know he stays for like another 15 minutes to talk to us? motherfucker. insert yelling at him about not wearing his michael jackson costume like he originally promised us, and him basically DEMANDING we go to one of their upcoming holiday shows that december (which we did). and then we let him go and we went to stalk daryl palumbo. and that’s a different story all in itself. (it involves us being 5 and not being allowed to cross the street because security said we couldn’t. and daryl didn’t believe us.)

cool story bro time: so cobra’s first tour in 06 when they opened for gch, i went to baltimore and had a super bad toothache but that’s beside the point. i was hanging out in the lounge to talk to gabe for a few, and then he had to go, but he ended up at the stage to watch gch. so anyway i went there anyway bc they were playing a song i liked, and i ended up behind gabe and i was like ughhh bc there was nowhere to go but he turned around and gave me a creepy :D and i was like heh. SO THEN THEY PLAYED UNDER THE BRIDGE and travie was like in the crowd and everything it was just amazing. and the set ended, and we’re all leaving, and gabe just like taps me and grins and he’s like “that was amazing, wasn’t it?” and i’m like “fuck yea.” the end. later on, we met a very drunk travie and it was hilarious.
