Funny you mention the ladies. At every show, I've seen lots of CRAZY good looking ladies... makin' me wanna hide my wedding ring, y'all. ( Don't tell the missus.) I've also seen some... well... not-so-good-looking... ladies, but you know what? Even those ladies are confident as h*ll and still ACT like they're all the sh*t.
Side note: I've gotta wonder what the heck the ladies see in us guys at the shows, 'cause we all ugly and crazy. hahaha.
Which reminds me:
At that last Oakland show, these two younger, overly-done-up chubby girls were talking to me and trying to be all interested in me because they'd seen me coming in and out of the green room & chatting with PUTS a lot. After like 5-10 minutes, they asked me if I was a part of the opening funk act or if I was from L.A., and when I told them I was just a friend of the group from Sacramento, they blew up laughing.
After a good bout of whispering, I heard one say "I have horrible luck. How come I can't find the good ones?" (or something like that). I could've been upset (in my sensitive youth, maybe...), but I just kinda shrugged my shoulders, said "eh.", then turned my back on 'em so I could help Double give two free tees to some real hotties (like hot...). Talked to those ladies for a while too, and thankfully, they were way more decent and real than the two gold-diggers I'd just been talking with.
Later on, I saw that same pair of chubby girls hangin' out by the green room door, and they tried to talk to me about getting in to see PUTS as I walked into the door... I didn't even acknowledge them. Probably made me seem like a d*ck, but... you burn a bridge, the f*ck you expect?
