i was at a wawa one time, and i was wearing an I&W shirt. i was buying a water bottle and the girl cashier goes, "so Mike Portnoy really left DT?" my mind didnt process the fact that she knew who DT were, and about MP, so i just go "um... yea, it kinda sucks" and then left.

no, seriously, i chatted with her for a couple of minutes, but it was busy at that wawa so i didnt have much time to go into more details (or get her number)  :loser:

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.



Shit.

I laughed pretty hard at this. :rollin

Epic thread. I wish I had such awesome stories to tell, but I rarely listen to music at other places than home.

Cool story, bro.
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 blasting Metropolis in my car and when I was waiting at the light, the instrumental section was coming to an end. Then I see a guy in a truck diagonal from me turn around and give me the dirtiest look. I don't think he enjoyed the music.

I had a visit with my father at the Mobil on the run he manages, and as I was starting to bike away, I noticed this old mail-man filling up, blasting the shit out of Take the Time. I was flabbergasted. I actually road by him and complimented him.

That's pretty awesome. I remember a guy next to me at a red light had PMU playing and I rolled down the window to express my approval.

You can rest assured you made his life much better.

I tried introducing DT to my roommate during the Washington D.C. field trip. As it seemed, I got a little carried away and was scolded. But I learned something. DT is one of my principal's favorite bands.


I still had to turn it down though. :sad:

Sorry, bro, she has a boyfriend.

Another cool story.  I was subbing for my Master Teacher today (I'm a student teacher) and in my 7th/8th grade Algebra class we were doing a review of graphs, so I thought the kids would love it if I brought in my laptop and hooked up some speakers and played some music and used the frequency response visualization to segue into how to interpret graphs. 

I played a little bit of Kryptonite, Fireflies (by Owl City) and Pull Me Under.  Needless to say, I nearly shat myself when some kid in the back recognized it and said "Hey, that's Pull Me Under".     
:jawdrop:

I regained my composure when he said he heard it in a guitar game (Guitar Hero).  Still, I thought it was cool.  Also, when I turned it off, a kid said "Keep it going, that's good" and another said "That's my kind of music".  :metal

I have such a boring life.

Well I was introduced to DT through Guitar Hero  :blush Sad but ture. At the time I was an "Ozzy Fan" (Not really, but he had the most songs on my iPod, therefore he was my favourite, LOL) Anyway, I was playing Pull Me Under. More like blasting. And my mom comes over and says, "Honest to god Natalie, turn that sh*t down!"
To this day she resents Guitar Hero for introducing me to both DT and Ozzy  :metal

I love listening to DT in the car, but usually it is so loud that I couldn't hear anybody talking anyway, although I am paranoid I will have an ambulance behind me one day  :)

I was in the U.S in September-October this year and I stayed at The Trapp Family Lodge in Vermont, I was wearing a DT tshirt and the waiter remarker cool top.

Later on in the trip I was hiring a bike at the entrance to Central Park in N.Y. wearing another DT tshift when another guy remarked 'I love Dream Theater', cool shirt.

Later on that night at Roger Waters, more people commented on the top. It was the 25th Anniversary top (how treasured it is now with current happenings  :sad:)

I am guessing a lot more people in the U.S. know who DT are compared with Australia!!! It is a cool day when someone know who they are!  :smiley:

I wore my DT t-shirt to school a few days ago and I walked into the band room and two kids said 'Hey, hey it's Dream Theater.' They are a good band, the bass player's bass sounds like a fish though on a youtube video.'

I have since forgiven that weird statement as he said he likes DT, but is not a big fan. However, we hold similar views on other bands

My friend once pulled over because he was heard the sirens from A Nightmare to Remember and thought they were real.  :lol

The first couple of times I listened to BC&SL, I was in the car, and I didn't pull over but I looked around for police cars or ambulances.

Yeah, I've done the siren thing too. Murderdoll's new one has sirens on a track that freaks me out too.


I've always wondered how they recorded the sound effects for that?
