'You make me feel so tall'

There was a time when all the bands that made me feel anything were on Vagrant Records. This was the end of my freshman year in college. I don't remember all of the bands that made me feel something, but the number one band that I don't remember is (or was) the Dashboard Confessional. That summer there was the greatest tour ever, where all the vagrant bands played. There were like six shows in Chicago and two in Milwaukee and I went to four of them all together, I think. That year I saw the Dashboard Confessional six or seven times.

The best show was the one in November, when what's his name from Sunny Day Real Estate played with them. Four of us drove up from school to see it, and we stood in the balcony at the Metro. I threw up in Denny's after running into my ex-girlfriend, Bob and Bob slept on each other, and we got pulled over at 3 in the morning. And Jules and I broke up the next week.

It was a hard year for me, as I recall. And the Dashboard Confessional didn't really make it easier.

All that to say, tonight, I am listening to 'can't slow down' by Saves the Day tonight and writing about metaphor theory.
