It takes balls to first make the call and stay on the line to actually talk on one of these shows.
It was all in the name of love for friends to ask for the shoutout. I can appreciate that. I can recall several things that have been requested to personalize a meeting or encounter thereof.
I say regardless of what was said, it happened. It's a moment in time that many people in the fandom will never forget.
So I hope that everyone can get over this soon. There is no reason for the fandom to be divided over such a trival issue.
We all seek the same thing - we all want to get just that much closer to those we obsess over. Some take more obvious steps, taking every opportunity they can to get themselves known. To be remembered.
Some quietly squee and never work the nerve to say hello. To be forgettable.
I don't want to be forgettable, I want to leave an everlasting impression on anyone I come in contact with.
I can only hope that the girl who talked about downloading songs from pandamoniumfromamerica, downloaded it from my site. Makes me happy to think, she probably did. That's a good feeling.
I say don't have regrets. Live for the moment. Do what you want to do. Don't let anyone tell you that you shouldn't have done or said something. It's your life. Have an opinion, go the extra mile, be remembered.
