What in the Sam Hill? Where'd you hear that?

zachff 01/10/13 12:34 PM

What are the odds I can go to this and get Pete to sign something that's not his book

rawesome 01/10/13 12:35 PM

I mean, I was calm about the idea of Pete Wentz going on a tour and playing music, too.

I'm sure he'd sign FOB items.

I'm thinking the friends and family pressing of FUCT would look pretty good signed by Pete (the album art at least)

Black Cards, I forgot that existed.

ole4b 01/10/13 01:17 PM

FOB played at my lunch period in Naperville, I had a feeling I'd see him again there

poppunkwayo 01/10/13 01:35 PM

black cards was fucking terrible.

This would make me happy.

I came here to say something about the book, but then I remembered that someone read it and said it was awful.

The Gunz Show 01/10/13 04:20 PM

i never heard of anyone read it already.. i'm not sure they even sent out press copies yet so i don't know how true that would be.

i'll go to the nyc signing. always good to say hello to pete. and i'll support and buy the book as well.
should be ballin.

When I saw him with Black Cards, they did a meet & greet type thing at the back of the venue after the show. A couple of us took FOB album sleeves for him to sign (is that rude? I don't know, but it wasn't an opportunity I was going to miss out on) and he was perfectly happy to sign them. In fact, on the inside of my friend's b-sides DVD case he scored out the 'her' in 'I love her' and wrote 'you' instead haha. He's pretty chill about it.

DisenShaanted 01/10/13 05:53 PM

I'm excited to read some of Pete's writing of old. The Boy With The Thorn in His Side has some serious precursors to Fuct throught.

fuckyouscenekid 01/10/13 06:03 PM

Wait. How is this going to work at the LA signing if the book comes out the next day. Thats when i'll get it from Amazon.

They'll have them in store for you to buy, then he'll sign them.

Wasn't it initially a band then the lead singer left and Pete made it into an electronica thing?

i hope fangirls don't bug him too much

I know the New Jersey bookstore is very strict about the author only signing the book, you barely get to speak, they ask if you want him/her to personalize it and ask for your name. I went when I was little for Mick Foley and then again for the Pete Rose book where he admitted to gambling.

just buy his book and get him to sign it first, you can always give it to somebody or even sell it, and then you would surely give him an extra item to sign and this would be fully alright I think.

derekjd 01/11/13 06:27 AM

Do we know what the book is about?
