Hello everyone.

Here is a place to boast about the famous punks you have met.

I have met East Bay Ray and Jeff Penalty and DH Peligro. Funny story, I grabbed ray's hand and wouldn't let go, which didn't help the old man's arthiritis.

This week we met Josh Homme from Queens of the Stone Age, and I shook his hand.

Sound boring?

Well lemme tell you Jimmy, Josh Homme's hand has been up Brody Dalle's clunge, so by the transitive property, I've touched Brody Dalle's clunge.

I met Dick from Citizen Fish outside of a sold out LoC/Citizen Fish show. It was pretty interesting, he was a cool guy, and it was funny because he was hauling gear inside, and some random chick that was with the show told Dick to "Dick, you need to go do this." And so he went and grabbed some stuff and hauled it inside. Just interesting.

I met Dave Dictor. I was sitting in front of the MDC merch table trying to decide what to buy. Dave was standing next to me, talking to the guy at the table. He got into a discussion about how he should jack off before the show started, and he suggested that he should jack off into a cup and drink his cum.

I told him that I loved him, and that it was great to meet him. Interesting conversation really.

I met Jerry Only, Michael Graves, Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstien and Dr. Chud of the Misfits right before that incarnation split up. I don't know if they still qualify as punk (or really if they ever did) I just know some people call them punk and they were cool as hell!
Graves was a little out of it but from what I understand that's just how he is. Damn cool night, thanks for bringing that memory to mind!

I have a hard time calling any punk famous unless their last name is Armstrong or Strummer...but (this is not punk) the singer who did the song Delilah (the one on the radio every 5 minutes) started talking to me and a friend at one of their concerts and like started patting my head because I guess I said something funny.

But this was before they were on the radio, so I guess it doesn't count (and because I hate their music haha. But they were very polite)

I briefly met Henry Rollins. I saw him on his spoken word tour a couple of years ago, and I was walking out back of the venue when I saw him come out. Didn't get an autograph or anything, but talked for a couple of minutes about the show and asked him about the old Black Flag stuff.

I left, and immediately remembered that I had wanted to ask him whether or not he thought he could kick Danzig's ass using only his neck.

For punkers I'd like to meet, I really want to meet Klaus Flouride. And get him to sell me a copy of Because I Say So. The stuff available on his website has absolutely captivated me (especially Akiko) but that album is ****ing impossible to find.

I chatted to Knox from The Vibrators. He's a real nice guy.

Stza from Leftover Crack asked me what good bands were on at a festival. At the time I didn't recognize him but later that afternoon I saw him and his band play.

The singer from **** Sparrer randomly turned up to at a friends house party I was at in my town. He lived next door.

I stood next to Hugh Cornwall from the Stranglers but was too star struck to say anything :(

I walked past Animal from the Anti-knowher Leage once. He is massive!

I saw Charlie Harper at an empty bar after a dissapointing gig, but I didn't go talk to him because I wouldn't have had anything nice to say, and at his age, he didn't need the abuse.

If I had said anything, it would have been along the lines of "get a new backup band".

I enjoy incorrect shorthand; it's a lot of fun. That said, I never use it when writing an essay for school, although I find that, on a forum, it makes for a more conversational tone. If I didn't use those words, you lot would dislike me more than you already do, but since Brian has brought it up, I suppose I'll just have to stop making my very intentional mistakes and prove that I am at least in joint first place when it comes to grammar in the punk forum.

As an American I find all your antics quite hilarious, seeing as how I'm part Scottish, French Canadian, and Italian.

Xenophobia is quite a funny thing really.

I am from the Greek part, hence my confusion.


Ooh! I have a question for you kind sir.

Is Baklava a Greek or Turkish invention?

'Cuz my college has a very large Turkish population and all of them fools claim Baklava is Turkish but I was raised to believe it was a Greek thing.

All the Greek places I've been to in my life serve it as a dessert too, so I just assume those smelly turks are lying to me.

Not knowing for sure is killing me!

It's up for debate, although it seems to originate from former Ottoman countries. That said, the Turks took over many 'Greek' areas, so they could have just adopted the cuisine and presented it as their own.

The Greeks used different ingredients for their dessert, which, although similar, was not the same. Either way, it doesn't really matter because Baklava is amazing so it's a well done to whoever invented it.

The Greeks and the Turks are rather bitter about this sweet dish.

Heaven in pastry form.

But yeah, I didn't meet a turk until I was 18 so when they tried to take credit for the dessert I'd been munchin' on in Greek restaurants all my life I wouldn't believe them.

I was prepared to go to war for the Greeks. :p:

But now that I see that the issue is rife with gray area, I'm going to play Sweden and stay neutral.

My dad says it's probably Turkish, but maybe recipes got mixed together along the way.

So basically, what SS311 is trying to tell us is that if baklava ever contains blocks of honey covered with icing sugar, that's the turks' contibution to the recipe.

I saw them in the end of last year, they were really good, but nothing against Rawside and Die Skeptiker who played at the same festival, during the song Straßenkampf (Streetfight), there was a great moshpit

Well...I nearly fell of Davey Havok once. He's so small, I would've crushed him. And the rest of Afi. My mom touched their bass player's butt. Um...met Tiger Army too. Also talked to Nathan and Denis from Flogging Molly for a few minutes.

Aww. Be nice. Granted, their last album was a little less than what I would have wanted (solid, but kind of lacking), but their other stuff isn't bad.

That's not the best example of their work. Check the other stuff out first. Their first two or three are just your basic punk album, for the most part. Then with the release of Black Sails, it changed a bit.

Decemberunderground was a little disappointing to most of the people who enjoyed them before its release.
