I was packing up some stuff today, getting ready for my big move to TexAss, and I came across some old stubs. This one reminded me that I have been in the most hardcore mosh pits since I was 13 years old. I'm sort of a bad ass If you didn't already know this.

I've been keeping every ticket stub since roughly 2000. I wish I still had the ones from the 90's though. When it comes to concert memories my real passion lies in the collection of setlists. I try to get one from every show that I attend, if possible. I have collected roughly 100-150 setlists over the years and these two are my favourites.
The first is R.E.M.'s setlist that I got from the 2008 Sasquatch festival. It was personally handed to me by Peter Buck. The second is the setlist I took off of The Flaming Lips stage in Calgary. I was chosen to dance on stage dressed up as a Teletubbie. They also let me keep the flashlight.
I wouldn't be surprised if you are picturing me peeling a carrot with a staple gun.
I caught a Decemberists set list scribbled on a paper plate that was tossed following their set at that amphitheater in Bend, OR. I looked at it for a bit then crumbled it up and tossed it in the grass.
My dad, who listens only to smooth jazz, introduced me to Guster well over 15 years ago. I have no fucking idea how that happened. I'll never forget the album artwork for Parachute, though. He played the shit out of that album.
