I was out on xmas eve at a pub (getting very drunk) and i got introduced to this "massive pearl jam fan." I started talking to her thinkling finally i have met a girl who likes pearl Jam as much as me. So i started talking to her and asked what concerts she had been to and she said "I went to one last year" I said "oh really i went to 2(both in sydeny), if you dont remember what concert it was, do you remember what song they opened with?" "No" she said "Well they played 3 concerts 1st one they opened with release 2nd evolution and 3rd Betterman" "I don't know" she said

I then said "what albums do u have?" she said 'Ten' I said "is that all? arent u supposed to be a big fan?" She said very sarcastically "I'm a big fan, your an obbsessed fan"

I wouldnt call myself obbsessed, im a massive fan, but i wouldn't classify her as a big fan. She also said "that dude has a cool voice" After that i said I'm going to the bar and did not return.

    :( I'm sorry but that actually made me laugh and cry. Why would someone call themselves a fan if they don't know the songs, etc...? I'm assuming she was young, but I never even did that when I was a kid. Just don't get it. ?

    oh shut up were all obsessive. yea i had times where girls were like "oh i like pearl jam" i dont think i ever even bothered talking about it. kids these days think actually owning a whole cd makes you a big fan, or having more then 10 songs by one artist that they illegaly downloaded on their ipod.

    k am I the only one who saw this as an oprituinity rather than a let down? like fuck she's obviously open to the band hnag out if she's cool then you may end up with a cool GF who is more than willing to put up with and maybe even become as big as a PJ geek as we are

    Yeh, but I bet if you met some celebrity out on the town and asked them the following...
    I then said "what albums do u have?" she said 'Ten' .

    and they replied as above, we would all be saying " insert celebrity name here is fan of Pearl Jam".

    So basically, you ditched a girl because she didn't know Pearl Jam as much as you??




    What are you, gay?

    If you were a hot girlie who went to one show, but didn't know what song they opened with, only had Ten, and thought that dude had a cool voice, I'd still talk to you and think you were hot.

    It shouldn't and doesn't matter how long each one of us have been fans. We all like PJ and that's the only thing that matters. :)

    I dislike the fans that try to out do everybody else's PJ stories with their own.


    Cute board name btw. :D

    Most people in the world loves ten and if they really love that album and plays it alot, wouldn't that make them a big fan of some sort?

    Or are the whole world filled with fools?

    Some of you guys are very judgemental. I was stuck with ten for at least two or three years before I was able to investigate further. Give her time:-)

    Maybe in some years, you will meet again and she will know more about pj than you do!

    Yep, I had a similar thing.. I went to a gig with some friends (they haven't liked Pearl Jam since Yield) and they brought this girl along.. seemed nice, so in the car we talked. 'You like Pearl Jam? I looooove Pearl Jam' she said. 'Wow,' I said, what's your favourite album?'
    'I only have Ten. But I LOVE it.' Stunned silence from me.. I'm not sure she knew why, but for me, her last utterance was akin to her saying 'Actually, there's no point in chatting me up. I'm gay.'

    I mean, honestly, it astounds me to this day. How can you LOVE an album, then take absolutely no interest what-so-ever in the rest of their material? My dad's exactly the same..

    well put! after hearing Ten for the first time and falling in love with it I couldn't wait to get my hands on other Pear Jam albums!! :D

    fair enough if you get the other albums and don't like them as much but at least.. give it a shot. lol.

    Yeah.. this girl's had Ten on her shelves for years, and she's loved the hell out of it, but NEVER has it occured to her to think 'Hey, I wonder if they have other albums.' Wow.

    wow, that's pretty dumb of you. if it were me, i'd keep talking to her. maybe one day you can show her the other albums and get her into them even more.

    you had it even better than most people do. she already liked Ten a lot. you just had to show her the other albums and she might have been as big a fan as you one day.

    pity.
