    I played my first real performance just a couple days ago at a talent show in the middle of a fair. There was like 300 people there and they loved it. We only played one song which was a cover of Good Charlotte's "Little Things" , but it sounded pretty good considering we only worked on it for a day. We didn't win the talent show, unfortunately, but it was a great experience. I signed autographs :D It almost makes me cry that the winning act was a guy lip-syncing to a country song. Got another show coming up in two days in the midst of a festival. Anyways just thought I have a little show and tell.

    I figured I'd just add my first live thing as well. It was at my school's talent show try-outs. We only got to the try-outs because the principal disapproved of the lyrics to Weezer's "Say it Aint So". That bummed me out. We rocked out pretty well, except the fact that the singer decided to not sing audibly. Nonetheless, it was mighty fun...

    I think my school would kick me on stage if I got there... I was going to do Kittie (which I don't like, but Brackish is ok) and Marilyn Manson for one of my school's talent show type things and I was explicitly forbidden...
