Dashboard Confessional -- We're not faint of heart


[mood |hopefulhopeful]
[music |Dashboard Confessional - This Is A Forgery]

1. Name. Home. Age.</b> Jason/Sarasota, FL/23
<b>2. How did you find out about us?</b> I saw it posted in Dashboardfans, and thought it sounded like a pretty damn good idea!
<b>3. Favorite Movie, TV Show, Ice Cream Flavor:</b> Mean Girls/The L Word/I don't really like ice cream, but I guess the pink kind!
<b>3. Favorite & Least Favorite Dashboard Songs:</b> The Places You Have Come To Fear The Most or Ghost Of A Good Thing/Hard to pick a least favorite, but probably that "It's Not Easy To Like It," cos' it is just kinda weird, and has sh*tty sound quality... even though it's still actually a pretty good song.
<b>4. Favorite Non-Dashboard Song(s):</b> A f*cking ton of songs, and it changes pretty frequently... but right now I am really into the song "In Gods Hands" by Nelly Furtado, "Invisible" by Ashlee Simpson, "MakeDamnSure" by Taking Back Sunday, and anything by The All-American Rejects.
<b>5. Favorite Non-Dashboard Band(s):</b> Scissor Sisters, Fall Out Boy, Juliette & The Licks, The All-American Rejects, and even though she is not really a band, Madonna

<b>Your History:
6.When did you first get into Dashboard Confessional?</b> It was late 2001/early 2002, shortly before or shortly after "The Places You Have Come To Fear The Most" was released.
<b>7. Tell us a story about how you found the first song you heard from Dashboard Confessional.</b> I had this friend who I worked with at the time, a total straight-edge punk wannabe, and he always made fun of me and said I was "emo" and I probably listened to Dashboard Confessional, so I went home and downloaded a few of their songs... and it turns out he was right! 
<b>8. Please share your best concert experinece:</b> If we're talking Dashboard concert experiences, well... I haven't had one yet. I will in less than 2 weeks, though, and I couldn't be more excited! In general, though, my best concert experience ever was either just a  couple months ago, I flew out to Los Angeles to see Madonna on opening night of her current "Confessions Tour," and seriously, as far as actual performance/putting on a full-blown spectacle show, it could never get any better than Madonna, or the Scissor Sisters at the House Of Blues in Orlando, November of 04... they put on an amazing live show, and the energy is just incredible. I have never felt anything like that at another concert!

<b>Common Knowledge:
9. When refering to Dashboard Confessional, have you ever created a sweet nickname pertaining to the band.</b> Ummmm... I don't really remember making up any nicknames for the band, although I know I referred to the newer stuff as emopoptastic, if that counts. lol. I DID make this weird Dashboard wallpaper for my computer, though, that was all pink and disco looking, and called it "Confessions On A Dashboard," because it was Dashboard, but it looked like something that would fit the theme of the new Madonna record, "Confessions On A Dancefloor," (as you prolly coulda guessed, my absolute favorite artist of all-time, aside from Dashboard, is Madonna!) So that was a fun little play on words... does that count?
<b>10. When talking about Dashboard Confessional do you use 'he' or 'they'? Discuss. [There is no wrong answer.]</b> I generally try to say they when I am talking about something from "A Mark..." or "Dusk & Summer," but when discussing the older stuff, I always just say he, because technically it was just him then. I think most of the time I just say They, though.
<b>11. Like tattoos? Any plans on getting one? Already have one?</b> I have one, (a rainbow heart on my left wrist, cos' yes, gay kids can be emo, too,) and I am planning on getting at least 3 more, (A weird, chicken scratch drawing of an angel on my left shoulder, drawn by Courtney Love, and a couple others I haven't decided on yet.)
<b>12. How about the other guys/gal? Got any favs?</b> I like John Lefler, but only cos' he is hot in a weird way, and always seems like he's having a good time in live performances and such.
<b>13. Promise to bring some laughs and some elite-ish-ness to the club?</b> I am pretty much ALWAYS good for a few laughs, if for no other reason than because I'll say something stupid without thinking about it beforehand, and everyone will laugh AT me, not WITH me... as far as the elite-ish-ness goes, well... I'm sure I can handle some of that!
<b>14. And finally, what is one question about the band, the man, or your future in the community do you have?</b></lj-cut> One question... ummmm... Wow... that's tough... I have a LOT of questions. As far as about the band, it would probably be "Why can't I just follow them around and see them play everyday?!" As far as about Chris himself, I just wanna know all about everything that inspired the songs he has written over the years that have meant so much to me... and as far as my future in the community, I  guess the first question would be: "AM I IN?!!!" lol
