i have most of my blogs archived since the early 00s. i figured, maybe i should begin copying/pasting and talking about them as an adult… i’ll elaborate and explain what was going on at that time or something, maybe i’ll make fun of myself. maybe it’ll make me cry? who knows.
i’ll keep the posts in tact and only edit out if i wrote anything absolutely ignorant or offensive, as i was a young moron back then.
i’ll put my current day comments in white boxes.
so, this first post in this category – i’ll combine two of them since the first one is smol, and they tie together.
let’s preface here: october, 2001.
i’m 20, i’m still living at my mom’s house, i’m working at a video store (i was there a little over a year and a half by then), i’m dating a guy (jeff) for almost a year at that point and i’m still finishing high school. i still had a credit or two i never finished, so i did them in 2001 in night school so i didn’t end up with a GED (no offense to anyone that has a GED vs. a diploma, i was just that i was RIGHT THERE, so i figured why TF not?… i did finish and i graduated officially that february). i was hanging out with sophie a lot then, jeff’s friends (i say jeff’s friends, but actually i ended up referencing his bff frank a job at the video store with me before i even knew jeff. i met frank on AOL via one of my current besties, kristen) and i was still sort of hanging out with my raver friends (i had stopped going to raves on the regs, so it wasn’t very often that i did see them anymore).
here we go…

after three long days of the servers being down 🙁 here’s a post lol. i don’t know how long this site’s going to be working until the next time it works again
anyways i should be off cuz i gotta get ready for my concert tonight. oh yeah baby i’m going to go see U2 and No Doubt tonight at the garden. Ooh i iz so excited! yo my MOM has seen U2 back in the day and now i am… it’s weird… but awesome 🙂 payce!
cringe. i can already tell i am going to loathe these posts by reading things like “payce”, lol. i still think it’s rad that two generations of us saw U2 at different life points. my sister and i went to see the joshua tree anniversary tour a few years ago out in LA, and it was weird to think that my mom got to see them on that tour when it was released.P.S. if you can ever see U2 live, do it. they’re unreal live. ♥

well a quick concert review…
… now as i was getting ready for my “event” yesterday i didn’t quite know what to wear. a no doubt/U2 concert. if i were going to a no doubt show on a regular day i would try to look comfy in cute ass punky stuff lying around in a pile in my room. but wait. it wasn’t JUST no doubt. it was also U2 which is a conservative band. hmm what to do? so i sported these huge silver pants i stole from my ex and this beautiful sequented tank top and my form fittin’ stretchy gap jacket deal. i was looking nice 🙂 anyways.. the clothes didn’t matter anyhow cuz sha! – it was more like only U2. no doubt only played for like 30 minutes. AND THEY SUCKED ARSE!
LOL U2 “a conservative band”. i think i just meant in comparison to ND, they were an adult contemporary rock band? what a dork.also, damn i really miss those pants – they were huuuuuuuuuuuuge, swishy wide leg raver pants and that shirt was so sparkly! my sister jacked that shirt from me and i don’t know wtf ever happened to it. it fell into the black hole in sarah’s closet, alongside 93879387 other pieces of my clothing.

LE CRINGE. “cuz sha!” lol and it was true, such a strange opening for U2. they totally eclipsed ND that night. i think that was in support of rock steady, which is prob my least favorite ND album.
also: gwen can’t dance – she never could. watching it IRL was embarrassing, i remember that show. man, i really let loose on her in that post. i googled it and apparently someone has this up on youtube, you can watch for yourself.
stupid ass no doubt played all that trendy new crap.. but i shoulda known that because it was a U2 concert… there was no pit except for this “golden circle” thing in the center of U2’s big beautiful heart. and even then, no one moved. damn gwen was trying to dance and she looked mad stupid. haha she’s one of those people that get made fun of for being white and having no rhythm. sure i’ve seen her old videos. but she was either jumping up and down or moving her body with her feet planted to the floor. last night she tried to do these moves that just weren’t workin’. ugh.
U2 did a great performance. i didn’t get to hear mysterious ways though 🙁 i luv that song. i think the best song they did last night was “where the streets have no name”. what an awesome production of live performance! i caught the best vibe when i heard the intro to the song. and they played my fave “sunday bloody sunday” and i tried to sing and clap and move around as much as i could but madison square gardens floors were MIGHTY STICKY, i am sick so i couldn’t scream and my hands were sore from clapping so much lol.
all in all, a terrific show and i’m so glad i got to see U2. between them, the cars, and the police, they were one of the bands i most wanted to see live. especially from back in the day kinda music. – my mom’s even seen U2 back in the eighties. wow. generations can share in the live U2-ness. special. i even fired up the celly so she could hear hottie Bono sing. it was great. i only got two pics and i doubt they’re worth posting. i had schweet seats but it was too dark to take pictures. i got a nice shot of the stage’s heart lit up and a picture of gwen’s twisted busted face up on the big screen.
FIRED UP THE CELLY!!!!!!!!! kill me. also: i think me referring to bono as a hottie was for my mom, who always had a crush on him. i can’t think of a time i had a thing for bono, lol.re: gwen that’s so mean, lol. i think i was mad at her at the time for being w my mans and for changing the sound of no doubt so much at the time… oops.
i remember i went to that concert with buzz. man, i never went anywhere with buzz alone, that was a random show setup. i think if i remember correctly that our coworker had the tickets, but he didn’t want to go bc his gf didn’t want to go or something? then he gave them to us last min heavily discounted.
also, i had a cell phone in 2001? i am so confused about this. i don’t remember having a cellphone of my own until 2005, when i took over my sister’s sprint account so she could get a razr on verizon. maybe my mom gave me hers for the night in case of emergency or something? weird.
either way, i have no idea where those pictures even are or what i could have even done with them. you couldn’t email them, there was nowhere to post them, they just lived on the phone, i guess.
