Topic starter

well, i went to one on sunday night, and played 5 originals and a dylan cover. i was a little nervous before hand and the pa was loud and reverb-y, so i didn't sing particularly loud, and i spent a lot of it trying to sing and play into the oddly positioned mics. after i got done, a very pretty girl told me that i was a "morose motherf---er" and that if she was working at a mcdonalds and i came through the drive-thru, that she'd probably kill herself. needless to say, such a wonderful compliment perked me right up.

Way to go Jason. :D

So, your songs are a little on the dark side are they? Hey, go back again, but this time include a happy song just for her like "Rubber Ducky" at the end. That will blow her mind and make you a crowd favorite.

Keep going back.

There's nothing wrong with being morose, it just demonstrates that you know what's going on in the world :wink:

Congratulations! It sounds as if your music inspired an emotinal response.... What could be better? I say mission accomplished..... If she follows thru with her promise the world might be better off :twisted:

Think of all the money you saved on an engagement ring, tuxedo, big wedding, mortgage, THEN four years later she tells you she thinks you are a morose mo-fo and she wants to kill herself, but decides to run off with her lawyer instead. :oops:

Great job on the open mike. And doing your own songs too! That takes stones, and chicks dig stones.
