So, I went to warped for the first time ever on July 31st and while we were waiting to get inside, a lady with jefferees shirt on came out and told us when and where we could meet him. So when the doors opened up we ran to the Paper Alligator tent and brought something to get a ticket. When it came time for the signing, I had I choose between seeing The Ready Set and meeting Jefferee. I stood in line for an hour and when we got to the front, I saw him and he smiled so sweetly and when I got to go in, the first thing I said was, ”You’re fabulous.” He smiled and put a hand over his heart and said, “Girl, I know.” I laughed and started to tear up and told him I was about to cry. He hugged me and said, “NO! Don’t cry!” I smiled and we took a picture and he said to me, “Don’t cry ever. You’re too pretty to cry.” I went out and my heart went a thousand miles an hour. It was fantastic!!!
Lining up to meet kevin was honeslty the most intimidating thing about warped tour. I didn’t really know what to expect. but when I was at the front of the line I felt like I could trust him so I casually strolled up and he gave me the biggest hug ever. Basically he smiled at me differently then everyone else does. Like he knew the pain, he knew I was an individual instead of a mistake, and he knew that I was worth something. (cheesy as shit I know) I honestly felt like crying but before I could he sat me on the table next to him, gave me a little nudge and chuckled at me. We took the picture and he signed my poster before hugging me again and sending me away in a teary daze. He made me feel alive again. like a new born swamp beast talkin to a guy with hair. because that makes sense.
Issues had been a recent discovery for me after seeing them on the American Dream Tour with Bring me the Horizon and Of Mice & Men (which was flippin awesome I might add WOW TORONTO). Honestly I was expecting tyler to be a bit of a prick from the way he slightly ignored some people, but meeting him was a different story. He was honestly the funniest person ive ever met at a show. He gave me a big hug, and took the picture and then grabbed my poster and was like “Holy shit! I don’t even know where to start! this ticket’s fuckin HUGE!” Where micheal on the other hand, well I cried a little I told him what hes done for me and what his words and music has done and he honestly looked surprised. he was a little bit timid and shy but at the same time he was so gentle. Like I could brake at any moment. I feel like these strangers know me better then my own family sometimes… like they care.
And last but certainly not least, my favorite giraffe Bryan stars <3 what can I say that wont be cheesy as fuck. well your a great gentle giant and your so awesome and so funny, honestly you were the most approachable person I have ever met xD thank you for chatting with me and putting up with me commenting on your height a couple times and I reallllllly hope to meet you again and maybe chat some more. I love it how your so nice to your fans and how you’re still so calm after being pushed around and pretty much walked over by strangers. Your perfect, don’t change. Thanks Giraffe <3
So on Warped Tour my friend and I saw Damon Fizzy walking around so we went up to him to say hi and we didn’t really know what to say so my friend goes “Happy America Day” (it was the 4th of july) and he just laughed and it was so humiliating omg
