talking to people at shows is sort of strange and awkward, especially if shows are the only place you talk to them.

I don't remember anyone's name EVER. I just refer to them as "man" or "dude" for a year or two and then finally learn their name.

I haven't been to a hardcore show here in probably about a year. The only hardcore bands that have played here were Go It Alone/Ceremony a few weeks ago. I missed that show because I found out about it two days AFTER the fact. I'm still pretty pissed about that.

I never rememeber anyone's name. At shows nor in everyday meeting of people. I've actually gone out to a show that was 60 miles away and didn't know their name. And it was just me and him.

pretty much. they're only aquaintences. they're usually the ones who get 'the nod' and the "sup duder?" from me.

there's this dude that I see at pretty much every show I go to in Montreal and we always chat about shit, and it wasn't till he got me a shirt at a show I went to on my birthday that I realized I was a total dick for not knowing his name...

well anyways the dude's name is Mark.... haha.

there are people that ive talked to that i didn't even know i knew.
and they're like "hey dianna!" and i can talk to anyone so it's just another person to bullshit with.

i like meeting new people anyway, even if we do forget each others' names a minute after.
