hideous WroteColonI was always a little off, coming up, and always a little too into the dark, but remained popular by being the 'funny' guy in the group. But then there was definitely a moment when everything changed.
Friend of a friend was this "strange chick". Brilliant would have been a better name, but anyway...
I end up hanging out with her all night at the club, and talking and dancing turned into us going out, dating, whatever the kids call it now. So here I am with my bon jovi and bryan adams on the radio, picking this amazing girl up and taking her out. She finally just pulls a cassette out of her bag, and says "Take this home and listen to it, and we'll talk tomorrow."
That was Disintegration, by the Cure. Changed my taste in music instantly, and led me to a subculture where I finally felt like I fit without trying.
Funny, considering the same girl took me to rocky horror, which years later I ended up involved in, considering I wound up doing tarot readings for a living, writing goth fiction, so much of who I became was contingent on that one girl, that one summer.
