    ...Also why the FUCK is Blink 182 topping the bill? What the FUCK do they have to do with ANY of the rest of that shit??!



    ...I'd say the same about Weezer, but I like some of their shit so that's ok. Though they still really don't match.
    The Blink 182 thing makes me angry, though.

    I guess I'm old. We had mosh pits, but it wasn't anything like that stuff. All these kids these days think their MMA fighters or something..Not quite sure what to make of it.

    I've been beat the fuck up in pits.

    In my teens I was all about it... punk shows wearing spiked bracelets and whatnot, spinning around as fast as I could just hoping to tag somebody in the face. Getting my 115-lb ass handed to me several times, but not giving a fuck.

    Now I avoid that shit. My good friend took a spill at a show we were at recently. She just got sucked in and knocked around. Ended up on the floor and limping out of the place. Fuck that. We're in our goddamn 30s. :jj:

    It's dangerous being a girl at punk/metal shows.

    We just kind of ran around and slammed into each other. There was an occasional kick or a punch but that was because some dude grabbed your girls boob. These things have evolved. You have to have some technique to get in the mix these days. Not that my 50 year old would want to, but I still get a kick out of watching how the aggression is dealt with at these kinds of shows.

    Yea, it's really just a "throw your weight around without giving a fuck who you slam into or injure" kinda thing.

    BUT you know if you're up front at a show like that, that it's going to happen. So if you don't wanna deal with it you shouldn't be there. If I'm wanting to be up front at a metal or punk show, I try to position myself near a wall, that way even though I'm in the area, I'm not "in" it. And I can snug up to the wall, or push off it for leverage in pushing the pit away if need be. Sometimes I just stand there against the wall with my elbows poised for impact, this way I'm protected from any kind of damaging blow. Plus someone else may take a beating if they run into me. I have bony elbows.

    There's only one explanation for that. The dude that got punched grabbed the other guys cock on an earlier fly by.
