o K this is so cute and i can’t and it’s nearly midnight when i’m starting this and i have classes tomorrow but this is really really really cute and i can’t

I Favor The Drummer

When you were eight years old, you got your first drum set and immediately fell head over heels for the idea of creating unique beats. It turned into your favorite thing to do, and you drove your parents absolutely insane. It was sort of hilarious; especially because you were never bad at it, you just were really loud. You were told by a teacher that you have the habit of hitting drums pretty hard, but the drumsticks you have are super durable. You’ve broken pairs before, but the practically endless supply has been replenished time and time again by your ridiculously supportive parents.

Honestly, you just loved the damn instrument. You loved music, playing it in front of crowds with your hair down and your makeup done, looking absolutely badass while people are cheering. It’s been your dream for the longest of times. But you’re beginning to live it, one show at a time.

At the beginning of a west-coast tour in your hometown of Los Angeles, you were out shopping for some thrift store tanktops to rip up and cut up. It wasn’t until you were out of the store that you met Ethan.

He was ridiculously sweet to you, because you forgot your bus card, he let you use his. On the way back to your stop, he talked with you, and you asked him if he liked music.

“I mean, who doesn’t? I’m not sure if I have anything specific I like, but music is still the shit.”

“I’m a drummer,” you smile, “that’s why I asked, is all.”

Your meetings at the bus stop turned a lot more natural, because you’d walk there to go to band practice and he’d walk there to go to his office.

“I actually do YouTube,” he sounds prideful, “my viewers are the best people I’ve ever met. They’re fantastic and I can’t believe how much support I get from them. Especially now, when I’m working as an editor and also a content creator.”

“That’s so admirable. It’s kinda like how I feel with my band, y'know, like anybody who’s ever listened to us are just the best people, no matter what they have on their minds. They’re there then, and now.”

“I’d love to see your band sometime,” he smiles to you. You laugh a little, brushing your hair behind your ear.

“That’d be awesome, thanks. I’ll subscribe, and find some time to watch you.”

As you and Ethan talked more and more, you understood each other more. Your professions actually weren’t too far off from being the same. It’s hard to make it both ways, and it’s really fun both ways. He always talks about the people who watch him in the best possible light, and you talk about the people who listen to you in the best possible light.

You’re still surprised when he asks you to coffee one morning.

“Like… now?” You ask, worried that you’ll be blowing off the girls. It’s always been a habit of yours to come to practice, rain or shine, sick or healthy.

“If it’s fine by you,” he smiles. “I don’t have much work today, I did a lot of it in advance so we could have the morning.”

“I guess I do need some coffee,” you grin, and walk with him to the little shop down the street.

He buys you your drink and you sit and talk for a little over an hour. You don’t even feel the time passing, because his stories and his voice is timeless. You’re so amazed that he’s so persistent and constant in his job, and you think that he thinks the same of you. It’s really the greatest.

For a while, you sit and talk with empty cups about everything and nothing. Favorite things, horrible first dates, high school. It’s casual and you switch topics so smoothly. It makes you happy to see him smiling at you across the table. Especially because of how he looks at you, with the same pride that one would with a fond friend.

It only takes you another couple months of small coffee rendezvous for him to ask you on a proper date. You end up spending a day together at the coast, chilling and building sand castles. He makes you laugh and you tell him that you want to go out with him again, and he beams with happiness when you guys step your feet into the water. It’s really, really cold.

One day, at the coffee shop (you managed to reschedule practice to a couple hours later than it used to be), you’re both sitting together hand-in-hand.

“I have a show this weekend,” you sort of mumble. “I was wondering if you wanted to go, ‘cause you still haven’t seen me play.”

“I’m totally going,” he announces. “And I’ll even bring my friends. I’m sure you’re going to be amazing, okay?”

You hide a shy smile, because he’s the one person you don’t want to mess up for.

The weekend rolls around faster than you thought it would. You’re waiting backstage at a small venue, knowing that Ethan’s in the audience for you. You keep twirling your drumsticks between your fingers, doing some light vocal warm-ups because you always sing the stripped-down songs. Your T-shirt is one he bought you; “I Favor The Drummer”, only you cut off the sleeves and added some other little holes because drumming gets really warm really fast.

The moment you get out on stage, you can hear people yelling for you. You turn your head to see Ethan and a group of people, all in the shirts, smiling with such pride. And Ethan’s is the biggest.

Your set is probably the best you’ve ever played. You throw in some cool drumstick tricks, and as always, end up getting up to the microphone once to sing. There’s something sweet about feeling like you’re singing to someone. You can’t mask it in your smile, in your stare to Ethan, in the way he nearly makes you giggle on stage by smiling right back.

In fact, the minute you’re off stage, Ethan comes over and gives you the biggest hug. And for a second, you wonder if it’s the right time to kiss him, because you could. You’d love to, in fact.

So you do, in a crowd of people who just listened to you play the most amazing show you ever had. And Ethan, of course, caused all of it.

Even though you’re sweaty and tired and you’re pretty sure you’re gross, he picks you up and spins you around and smiles like you’re the best thing that’s ever happened to him.

And you wouldn’t have it any other way.

[WARNING! LONG POST]
So about the Motionless In White concert.
I’ll start from the time we arrived at the venue. As soon as I saw the venue and THEIR TOUR BUSSES STAND INFRONT OF IT! What a chance! I thought if we would just arrive at the venue at 5pm we would have been too late and I couldn’t manage to be in the first row. But WRONG! They were just 10 people there. We heard Motionless In White in their soundcheck playing “Dead as Fuck” and I believe it was “Dark Passenger”. My dad wanted to go for a quick walk so we went into direction of the tour busses. The side door for the venue was open and there was Ryan standing and smoke, facing the wall. As soon as I realized that I took my camera and the picture I wanted to sign out and I started shaking. Ryan noticed us, took a look, and then went into the venue with his cigarette still on. I was just to nervous to say anything because I’ve never done this. A security guard came out to close the door, my dad tried to ask him to get the card signed for me but he said he doesn’t want to annoy them so we should try it later. We went back to the our car and suddenly I recognized some people I wouldn’t have thought of meeting. The girl and the boy I met last year at the Motionless In White concert! I was so glad to meet someone I know because I had no one else to go with me and it was good that I’d have someone to meet with me the band members later. We waited in line, then went into the venue. There weren’t many people at the show and the venue was really awesome! I felt kinda sorry for the band Devilment because they tried to motivate the crowd but as soon as they mentioned Motionless In White the crowd screamed. After Devilment, Motionless In White was next. FUCKING AMAZING SHOW!!! They changed the setlist I was orginally expecting to hear but it was still amazing! It was so much fun, I sang & screamed along, Chris praised us that we are the best show so far and was so happy during “A.M.E.A.R.I.C.A” for such an amazing support! At the end of their set everyone was saying “one more song” but we didn’t. Ryan threw his plectrums into the crowd and one fell onto the floor. I thought someone had already picked it up but I still looked for it and there it was! So with my friends and dad we went outside. The first person who came out was Chris. We all stood around him, and while he was talking to another girl my dad suddenly showed him the picture he should sign and a pen and he look so surprised haha. Then everyone took a picture. As it was my turn I said “Really great show”and took a picture. He asked me if I was familiar with the girl I was with and I said I met her last year at the Motionless In White show. They asked him if they’ll tour again here and he said next year definitely! It was really chilled talking to him, I didn’t fell that nervous and his arm that was holding onto my arm during the picture making felt really “warm-hearted”. I mean with that it felt like he really enjoyed taking his time and not just “yeah whatever get this over very quickly”. It’s really cool that even when you already talked to him he doesn’t mind, he ask if there’s something else and really takes his time. I was curious if Chris is taller than my dad and he agreed with a smile and took a picture with my dad! Next Josh & Ricky came out. I went up to Josh and asked if he had a second. He had his hands full with a bag and my dad said “I’ll take it” haha. He signed my stuff and took a picture with me. Then I asked the girl I was with if she wants to take a picture with Ricky, he just stood next to the tour bus smoking so I went up to him and just asked. My dad took so many pictures with me and Ricky because he thought he didn’t get a good picture haha. After that we still had to get a picture and a signing of Ryan & Devin. So the one boy that was with us was asked by my dad if he could ask that crew member if Ryan was in the bus but he wasn’t. Then Ryan came out of the venue holding a laptop bag in his hand. I asked if he had a second and he answered he brings the stuff into the tour bus and comes out. After 10 minutes I thought he was just joking but then he came out and he signed my picture and we took a picture. Then we still had to get a picture with Devin. Before Sabrina told us that she doesn’t know if Devin is still in the venue so we waited. After quite some time some guy of the catering came, knocked on the tour bus door and there was Devin. All the time in the tour bus. Before the door closed my dad went up to him, said “Hey” and make a writing gesture because he can’t speak English, Devin just nodded closed the curtains. We all thought hw wouldn’t come out and wanted to go home but then he appeared. He signed my picture and we took a picture together. Really nice guys and so looking forward to the next time! Oh,the one boy that my dad was asking to ask a crew member to see if Ryan is there asked me if I have instagram. I said yes I do, he said I probably follow you and he searched my name and he did haha! I wasn’t expecting to meet someone from instagram! Surprisingly my makeup didn’t move at all! Really an amazing evening and I didn’t want it to end. ♡

Dan - “The other band members?, there’s will who plays bass and he’s, he’s awesome, and then there’s kyle who plays keyboard, uh, who is also awesome, now i have to say that about everyone, then Woody plays drums, he’s, he’s less awesome, but he’s also awesome, well he’s more awesome. [laughs], and everyone sings and stuff, and we all kinda move around and yeah, no, it’s uh, we have quite a lot of fun.”

I am so sorry, David.

I feel really sorry for David Duchovny because he rocked his heart out on Wednesday night in Munich but somehow the audience didn’t respond at all. At times I was really embarrassed. He tried so hard to engage the audience. Every time they did start to clap and dance a little it was over within seconds and everybody just stood there. 

The two girls in front of me didn’t move a muscle the entire time! Girls! Wtf? I mean with the music David plays you kinda have to at least bob your head a little or something! But instead they seemed to get really pissed at the other girl in front of them who was taking a video of almost the entire concert and therefore blocking their view so they didn’t really get a chance to take pictures or videos themselves. Tough luck. 

The pinnacle of it all was when D held the mic in front of one of the people in the front encouraging them to sing along but instead they continued taking a video of him, which he addressed after the song. He sounded slightly pissed and told everyone to just put their phones away and be in the moment. Enjoy it all NOW and not tomorrow. I kinda died of embarrassment at that point. 

But that’s not all. There was a heckler who kept shouting stuff about Mulder and Scully and Hank Moody in between songs while D was talking. In the beginning he tried to respond and said Motherfucker(I guess that’s something Hank Moody used to say a lot? Not too familiar with Californication :/ but it seemed to appease the heckler for a bit). But the I’m assuming drunk heckler wouldn’t stop and D just kinda gave up and talked over him. Why no one got rid of the heckler is beyond me. 

Anyway, I am so sorry about this negativity but I’m just really angry. I feel like I have to apologize to David. He really tried his best. And I think he was amazing. 

And it wasn’t all bad! Yay positivity

As I said D rocked the stage! It was amazing seeing him dance and jump around and just be a total rockstar. I quite enjoyed his moves. They were interesting. ;) 

And i would like to thank David for wearing these very short shirts that expose his belly ever time he raises his arms, which he did a lot. :P 

He sang a couple of new songs, which were all really, really good. He also sang a Bowie song, which turned into I Can’t Feel My Face from The Weeknd. That kinda got the audience going. Go figure. During the Encore he sang Lately It’s Always December. He said it’s the first time they’d played that on tour. Thanks. :D 

Best part probably was when he came down from the stage and danced his way through the audience. The first time I was too far away but the second time I was closer and he came right by me. We awkwardly high fived each other and I think he said something like You’re awesome. But I’m not delusional. I know he meant the entire audience not just me. :P
I responded with an awkward Yeah. *facepalm* That’ll probably haunt me for a while… 

So yes, I still enjoyed it a lot and I hope David did too. At least a little. The band did seem to have fun. I had a pretty good view on one of the guitar playing guys and his face was lit up the entire time. He seemed happy.
That made me happy. So I hope they all enjoyed it despite the awkwardness. <3
