Cool Story Bro!
« on: November 08, 2010, 06:34:55 PM »
I was sitting at a traffic light blaring Misunderstood (the instrumental section just before "It challenges the essence..." and a guy next to me shouted over and asked me "Who is that?", so I told him Dream Theater and he said "Thanks!" and wrote it down on a piece of paper.   :metal

Another time I was playing Scarred, and I heard a really loud horn and it was an undercover cop next to me.  I turned it off and he said, "Not everyone likes that music buddy."   :blush

Years ago when SDOIT first came out, FW's dad and I were driving to a friend's house and were blaring Misunderstood on my car stereo, and FW was curled up in fetal position on the back seat crying with his hands over his ears.  True story.

Okay, truth be told, I was actually blaring The Glass Prison, and instead of crying, FW was actually pretty into it.

Years ago, I was in a guitar shop and some guy next to me was playing Pull Me Under. Being a n00b at the time, I asked him "Is that Dream Theater?" He seemed to be amused at my question, replying "Yes, yes it is." He must have thought I was really cool for knowing an underground band like DT! True story.

One time I listened to A Change of Seasons in my car and I found it to be an enjoyable experience.  :sadpanda:

The other day I saw a guy with a TOT t-shirt and I was liek, cool shirt bro, and he was like, Oh thanks. True Story.
I imagined the story to go more like this.

I was sitting a traffic light blaring Space Dye Vest and next to me in another car was Kevin Moore. And I'll never be open again.

I was sitting at a traffic light blaring Misunderstood (the instrumental section just before "It challenges the essence..." and a guy next to me shouted over and asked me "Who is that?", so I told him "It's Dream Theater!" and he said "Scream Theater?" and I said "NO! You Misunderstood!" Then I turned from a thief to a beggar.

One time I was at work and I had "A Change of Seasons" on.  Some guy asked me who it was, and I told him it was a band called Dream Theater.  He said "Are you kidding?  Those guys are awesome!" and I was like Shut up, you've never even heard of them.  He says "What song is this?" and I told him.  He said, "I've still got to get that.  I still only have Images and Words and Awake."

This was when ACOS was the latest release.  I said "Holy shit, you do know who Dream Theater is!"  I worked with the guy for another five years, and talked DT with him whenever I could because he was (and still is) the only person I've ever worked with who knows Dream Theater.

True story.

Argh, can't make the obligatory " but girls don't listen to prog" joke because we actually have girls here.

I was on an expedition that actually found the end of Pull Me Under. There were Nazis, Arabs, booby traps, a knight, a vilupcuous female, a bumbling side kick, a ruthless henchman, a temple priest who can rip out your heart and start it on fire.... oh wait I think I'm mixing up two expeditions I had.

One time I was listening to DT and this cute girl asked who it was and I told her and she said, "Oh." I did not get laid at this point.
