so. what's your happiest moment?
I was crazy for this beautiful boy Evan... and I realized that I was falling
head over heels in love with him but I didn't want to mention it first...
it seems that guys *at least in movies* get scared away by that.. so I waited..
and one night I asked him how long he thought it would take him to fall
completely in love with me.. he said maybe 3 more weeks. Well, the next
week we are at his huse watching tv and he turns to me and says "and
what if I love you before 3 weeks??" and I said "well I would
hope that you would tell me.." and he waited a few minutes.. kissed
me and said "well.. I know that I do love you".. it may sound
cheezy.. but.. it makes my heart melt...
moment (well, one of my moments anyway) would be putting out the one and
only 7" I ever put out on my now defunct record label, Black Coffee
Records by an also now defunct local band called Bobwolf. With the exception
of the band and their friends, EVERYONE who heard the 7" hated it and
I lost quite a bit of money putting it out but I had an absolute blast doing
it and I'll always cherish that time in my life.
met the lady who was to be my wife while travelling on a "find myself"
trip with my dog. I stopped off in Mississippi, and met a girl with the
most beautiful smile. We spent a day together, and as I prepared to drive
off into the sunset (literally), I took a moment to talk to her one last
time. We wound up talking (and yes I kissed her) for 6 hours under a Style
Cigarette sign at a roadside gas station outside of Jackson Ms. I went back
to Cali, and got the nerve to move back to Ms. and we were married a year
later(8 years ago).
caught a baseball one time
first time I performed in the Academy of Music in Philadelphia in a local
community orchestra. It was my absolute dream to play in this orchestra
since I started my classical training at age 8. At 16 on a may night in
the late 1990's I made my academy debut.
That night i performed along many great artists and played works by Gustav Holst and Gershwin.
I still hold a very special place in my heart for the academy. My idols played on that stage in the philadelphia orchestra. In particular, James cooper, cellist.
just realized how much John Frusciante did in fact change my life.
I remember a few years ago when I was really sad. Sadder than I am today...and a lot sicker too.
All I ever thought about was death. Suicide. Drugs. Sex. Murder. Guns. Knives.
Anything remotely negative basically...
But that one night I saw Anthony Kiedis on the Soapbox for MTV News 20/20 and he announced John's rejoining the band...I literally bounced off the walls screaming.
Bcuz then I knew...if John could make it through, what he had been through (heroin, depression and insanity), then I could most definently make it through the sickness that had been haunting me for so long.
He gave me the confidence.
His music gave me life again.
Everyday, I am so grateful that I have discovered this man.
And everyday, I thank the higher powers that he didn't kill himself.
I love you John.
There's no emotion I can deeply express to tell you how much you have done for me.
Thanks for everything...
my lover for the first time. Oddily enough it was in the server room in
new years eve, one full of loud music and cheerful friends, laying next
to a girl who I would later discover to be one of the most wonderful people
I had ever met.
was my first day at school, i told my mom that i didnt want to go to school
unless i got to ride th bus. that i had to ride it to and from school that
i wouldnt go unless i could ride it. she told me "ok but just this
once Gregory" :)
think It must have been the time when I was 25, and I played bass in front
of 20,000 people with a famous band from texas.
I thought they were all applauding for JUST ME.
At least I like to think they were.
was riding my brand new motor bike that i had a few weeks earlier and my
parents and famly were behind me all watching me. i came to a round about
stop signald and went on. i came to a pretty sharp bend on the motorway
and i was doing about 70mph when i suddenly felt the bike come from under
me. i hit the ground pretty hard. i woke to find myself in hospital. i had
hit an oil patch and came off.ok not bad i thought im ok. i find out later
that i had died in the ambulance for about 10 munits . thats when it hit
me. i had died if God hadnt wanted me to died then i wouldent have. and
i figure God has sumthing good planned for me.
was my first date with my now wife. Her mother was babysitting at her house.
I had to hide in the alley for 3 hrs. It was worth it in the end!
chance i was thrown together with an unlikely group at IBM in fishkill,
NY. One claimed to be a guitarist, the other a singer, and i coincidentally
am a bass player. so on that fateful day of september 11th we were sent
home from work early, we decided to stop by the liquor store, purchase some
"medicine" and jam. what came about was a fusion of metal/rock/grunge
and later added a jazz influenced drummer which formed the band In Itself.
on a whim i submitted a demo of ours to snowboard.com to get on a CD compilation.
we were contacted 6 weeks later with an offer for a recording contract.
that... was my amazing moment.
first time I djed in a club....the club was empty but it was my first time
controlling a powerfull sound system....I got to go out of town where they
have real systems and I had forgotten what it is like....I jones for that
ago i was hit by a car. it was on the 4th of july. the night was too hot
for details, but the last thing i remember was trying to cross the road
to talk to some girls with my drunk friend. as we crossed the road a van
hit me at 40 mhp. knocking me into a wild crash and burn in my sidewind
partner. as my body hit his we rolled down the tx bridge into unconsiousness.
of course i do not remember any of it. an hour later i woke in the middle
of a scan. bright lights had surrounded me and my squinty eyes. it was too
much. i simply thought i had died and some how went to heaven. at my young
age i just figured that i had not had enough time to live to become a bad
seed or be a harsh person to my fullest potential. i closed my eyes as i
felt my body come out of the scan. i asked "is this heaven?" "no"
a voice said. in a horrid silent panic i rushed my eyes open as fast as
i could and saw my parents. i was alive and never felt better to be.
would think my most memorable moment is when we had our first kiss. It was
at the Zoo Bar [Now called the Zen Lounge- which now bites arse] It was
a cool goth bar- which was kind of funny since we are both white whiteys
straight and narrowy. We had been casually dating for a month before that
and I was dying to know if and when he would ever kiss me. I remember having
a few Mikes hard lemonade, and we sat at a quiet end of the bar on a couple
of stools. Jeremy mentioned that he knew I liked him, and I was all golly
gee willickers shucks. We talked about nothing and then he just motioned
me forward, and I leaned over, and I gave him a big huge slobbery wet one.
Our kisses got better after that. I love my Jeremy!
best moment was when i realized i was never going to have people like me,
so i became really introverted and now i dont strive to be something im
not to please the jocks, preps, elitists, etc...i just drum and read all
on stage in front of hundreds of people, including my filthy-rich hyper-bourgeois
in-laws, belting out Marianne Faithfull's "Working Class Hero"
and loading the song with every ounce of anger accumulated over 30+ years
of grinding poverty and busting my ass just to stay even, and every ounce
of pride in not selling out my soul to become a bourgeois hypocrite corporatron
drone, every ounce of pride in every person I know who didn't sell themselves
out to become the person school teaches us we "should" be....and
then, hearing the applause and admiring shouts when I was done.
|my shining moment occurred on the 3rd date with sean. standing in a mcdonald's parking lot, and listening to weezer, i watched my future husband nervously work up the courage to kiss me. for hours we sat, until the sun came up and he finally held my face in his giant hands and leaned down for our first kiss.
