Abominable Dan's Abominable Things

Dan: Toronto based Yeti, music enthusiast, record collector and lover of nerdy things, feminism, and body-positivity. Battling depression so you'll likely see a lot of talk of that here.

So far I’ve seen two tumblr palls. We all come together for a Bad Seeds show.

Tonight I’m gonna see the Bad Seeds, and I’m going to see my best friend who I haven’t seen since my birthday.

It’s gonna be a good night.

I just ordered this poster. I’m excited to put it on my wall.

I’m Billy Dilly!


So here begins my long rambling amazing concert experience. This was the best show I have ever been to.

First of all, even though it was seated, that didn’t mean shit because I rushed to the front right away. And they’re playing, and it’s amazing, and I’m singing every word. And every now and then, Nick points at me. I was blown away, but he was pointing at everyone, he’s a hell of a showman.

Then From Her To Eternity comes, and he leans over, puts his hand on my shoulder, and screams a line right into my face and I just about died. But that’s not even close to the best part.

Stagger Lee happens, and he’s singing to specific audience members for each character that Stagger Lee encounters. And I was assigned Billy Dilly. He sings that whole verse about sucking his dick right to me, holding on to me at some points. And he gets to the line “And suck my dick!” and stops. My best friend sings “Because if you don’t you’re gonna be dead” and he pulls her in, and cradles her. While singing the rest to me. It was fucking incredible.

After the show I got to meet Andy, which was amazing. And she gave me a Yeti ice cube tray, which I love. And then we go back to see if we can meet him. And I did! He saw me and said “The man who saved the show!” and that basically killed me. I thanked him for an incredible show, and told him it changed my life, and asked for a picture. He obliged me and pulled me in for a hug.

And I will never fucking come down from this.

This is what happened last time. I have no idea if anything can top it.

Several people have suggested Nick will remember me. If he does I will just die.

Bad Seeds tomorrow night! I know some of my followers are going. Say hey if you see me.
