Continued from the previous post, the second part focuses on gig tickets and extras.
I could go on forever about my experiences at these gigs, so I’ll just summarise it by saying that I loved all of them and each one was an amazing experience. Music is a major part of my life. I’ve also been to a lot more than just those listed.

Letter from Eclipse (Tattoo & Piercing studio in Camden) – 15/01/10
I had to keep this letter. It was when I had my snakebites done. I need to get new rings for them right now. Anyway, I’d wanted snakebites for a couple of years so I was so happy when my parents finally agreed to let me get them.

Pack of plectrums
These two postcards (as well as a third, but I can’t find it) and the plectrums were given to me as a gift by a man who worked in a shop near my house, which my mum and I go in all the time. (I have to admit, I had a crush on him for a couple of years before he gave me these gifts for... I can’t remember if it was for my birthday or Christmas. My response? I finally got to give him a big hug, hehe.)
Elliot Minor Postcard
Drawing of ‘Chav Reaper’
This is one of the very many joke characters a friend and I came up with. True to his name, the chav reaper is a chav-styled grim reaper who hunts chavs. My friend drew the picture so it’s even more special to me.
I have a few autographs. My favourite is from Ash Price (Synthetic Season) which he sent to be along with a shirt I’d ordered (because I asked nicely hehe). I met him before at the Jeffree Star gig and ended up talking to him for around five minutes and I got a nice picture and hug from him aswell. This was also around the time I used to be so shy approaching musicians but he was so friendly I didn’t have any of those problems.
I got this at the very first Lets Talk Tactics gig a few years ago. It’s the only thing I have left from it and it’s still special to me. I still wear it on my wrist all the time (except for at the moment because the thing that connects both ends is broken and I need to get a new one).
I got all three of these from a Joe Lean & the Jing Jang Jong concert. It was a really fun night and I remember that the venue played an entire Placebo album during the breaks between musicians.
An article about the first gig I ever went to, so naturally I had to save it.
It belonged to my dog Lady, a Pomeranian, who was put to sleep the day after Christmas due to medical problems. She was only a couple of years old so that was even more upsetting. I hadn’t had a dog before that since I was a little child and I haven’t had one since which is really sad because I love dogs.
From my rabbit Flopsy, who died about a month or so ago. She loved the ball so I decided to keep it in memory of her.
