I'll go first:

When the Onion article about Indie music fans that are trapped under the collapse of a music venue is forwarded to you by no less than three friends.

And you recognize every band named in the article, but laugh and think it's about someone else.

Or, you look exactly like the photos in said article.

When you've posted more messages on a music website than the originators of the site.

All it takes is one good show and a damn fine mix album delivered at just the right moment to make you decide that your job really isn't the most important thing in your life.

I guess if I were a bigger music geek, I'd never have gotten so misguided in the first place.

And so young Joshua's journey begins. Anyone with hot job offers and cheap apartments in Chicago can write to me: [email protected] I am managing Josh's move to Chicago.

Seriously can not wait until you get here.

Is this going to precipitate a Vantrells reunion show?

When you're forced to hug Johnny Loftus over a drinking game. I would only do that for Rock n Roll, man!

If only I could get Mike D. to move here. Then the halls would once again be filled with the fury of the Empty Man. Still one of my favorite songs.

You know you're a music geek when. . .

You and Scotty get in an argument over which band is better and no one else at the bar has a clue what two bands you're arguing over and they're just wishing that you'd find common ground in the fact that the new Nickleback song rocks!

Ahhhh.....

When you're "old" friends tell you they just don't like or "get" music the way you do....

When you know more about your fellow board posters(music of course) lives then you do about your own family's..

Your paychecks end up at the local record store....

The owner of said rcord store not only knows your name but also your phone number....
