This past weekend I attended Fun Fun Fun Fest and saw some nostalgic acts. Friday night I left the festival to attend Taking Back Sunday's Tell All Your Friends 10th Anniversary Tour. The album, like a few others, holds a special place in my lifetime, and that place in sappy crater I call a love life. You can read my thoughts on my personal attachment to the record here. I invite you all to share your own stories and albums or songs that go with them. I don't want to turn the front page into 'Personal Life' today, but I think we can make a pretty cool mixtape of stories to end the week nonetheless. Or you can just head to the replies and call me a dork, either way, I hope you enjoy it.
