    3. Trans-Siberian Orchestra a couple of years ago. About $55.
    4. About an hour.

    Show time!
    1. Your first concert?
    Korn. Embarassing.
    2. Your most recent concert?
    Overkill. My friends were direct support, so I got in for free. :)
    3. The most you ever paid for a concert?
    Probably around $30.
    4. The farthest you ever traveled for a concert?
    I drive to Cleveland, about 3 hours, all the time for shows.
    5. Your all time favorite concert?
    The first time I saw Symphony X. It was the second Odyssey tour I think. They played forever, and it was the tour before they started doing The Odyssey live, so it freed up a half hour for even more tunes. And they hung out with us and were very cool to my friends and I.

    Also, the last time I saw Symphony X. We played first on the main stage, which was an honor, and it was free. :) Not to mention the Paradise Lost stuff slays live.

    1. Iced Earth, Children of Bodom, and Evergrey...a very good night.
    2. Obituary, Unleashed, and Carnifax.
    3. $260 (I believe) for Ozzfest tickets 10 rows from the stage, I guess it was worth it to see several metal gods.
    4. about 70 miles
    5. Has to be the first time I saw Opeth

    1) Study/do homework and blast Morte Macabre - Symphonic Holocaust all day long!

    2) Drive back to Pittsburgh and visit the family etc.

    3) Same as Thanksgiving

    4) We travel

    5) Turkey by far. Although, I do like leftover ham samiches with lots of lettuce and mayo the next day!

    1. What are your plans for Halloween?
    None so far. Halloween party tomorrow, but nothing on the actual day. Which is very lame, considering it's a Friday.

    2. What are your plans for Thanksgiving (if you're in the US)?
    Have family over. Sit around and eat. Then go to GF's house, eat there. Come home, eat some more. :) I can't wait.

    3. What are your plans for whatever holiday you or your family celebrate in December?
    Go to family parties. Open presents. Eat more.

    4. Do you usually have relatives come to celebrate Thanksgiving, or do you travel to visit relatives, or neither?
    They come to me. It's great.

    5. What's a better holiday meal, turkey or ham?
    Turkey by far. It gives you that drugged feeling that ham just can't touch.

    1. A friend is getting married on that day, and the reception is medieval -themed. :Smug:
    2. Going home for the week, watch some football with everyone.
    3. Go home, ask Santa for a job in 09. :erk:
    4. People have been coming to my parents' house in recent years. It's cool, but so much work for them.
    5. Ham. I can't eat leftover turkey continuously after a holiday.

    3. Go to other grandparent's house
    4. Always travel, but never far.

    So then.. It's Friday.

    I'll go with the "holiday" theme but try not to make it as pointlessly shitty as most of the day is.

    1. Who's your favorite dead person?
    2. How would you haunt, and who, if you could?
    3. What is the scariest moment you've ever had?
    4. Which classic Ghost is the creepiest?
    5. Tell your favorite ghost story, especially if it isn't the made up kind.

    1) Family= My mom, Non-relative = Frank Zappa (I'd LOVE to hear what he'd have to say about the election this year).

    2) I would haunt friends & foes. Friends I would mess with in a fun way, foes would be messed within the most hideous ways. Enough to make the Hostel movies look like Disney productions. :heh:

    3) Tie - Recently finding out that my furnace was spewing carbon monoxide, and if I didn't find the crack, and the leak, I stood a very good chance of not seeing the end of the upcoming winter. 2- A bad car accident where I did 2 counterclockwise 360's down the side of a steep embankment...

    4) Casper :lol:

    5) n/a

    1) Shawn Lane - This man was just an amazing musician and it's really sad that he had to go so early in life.

    2) No one really, I wouldn't waste my time on it.

    3) I've had a couple of them, but the biggest one was a car related one. A friend of mine had car problems and called me so I could check it out and start it for him. When I got there I checked it and knew right away the car had starter problems, so I told him to raise the car. I got below the car and started working on it and in a couple of mins I somehow noticed the frame of the car slightly moving. I tried to get out of the car as the damn thing almost crushed me below it, resulting in me getting a real good knock on the head by the transmission and almost getting crushed by it.

    4) The closest one to being scary I would say is the Black Dog, since it's usually seen as an omen of death.

    5) Where I live there's a local legend that a bride wanders around the streets of a local mountain. People driving (usually past 11 pm) around the area have said they've seen a woman in white clothes asking for a lift and when people pick her up, after a couple of miles she up and disappears. Others have said (a friend of mine experienced this) that they ignored her wishes and she nonetheless got inside the car and later disappears when the car gets near a local church. People that live around the area say that the ghost of the bride is a woman that was getting married and the same day she was going to do her vows she died.
