1. You listen to Diver Down, and wonder why the Hang 'em High lyrics are wrong.

2. Your favourite VH lyric is ' I forgot the f**king words!'

3. You go through one colour inkjet cartridge/week and blame it on vhboots.com

4. You can't remember which official album Down in Flames is from.

5. You listen to 90s VH albums trying to spot which riffs were written in the mid '70s

6. You're so sick of waiting for a new album that you burn one of unreleased VH originals yourself...and call it VH zero

7. You have a pretty good idea of what Roth is going to say next the first time you listen to a show.

8. You probably know more Van Halen song titles than Eddie does.

9. You put more effort into speculating why WACF and FW shows are hard to come by than into your job.

10. CDR spindles come somewhere between rent and food on your monthly budget.

Any others?

Yes to them all. I start to get mad when I think back to when "Erution Video" was having there going out of business sale.I was going to buy every single video they had at a GREAT price. And by the time I had all of the money, they were out of buiness. Still pisses me off. Oh well, yunk happens.

You seriously consider selling your firstborn for an "ultrare, limited edition, only 50 copies pressed" VH bootleg, thinking "Well, the wife and I can always have another child. Or get a pet dog."

Sound familiar???

True true true. This may be the best post I've ever read. How about;

1. You burn copies of your own boots just to have backups.

2. You buy boots with stuff on them that you already have on other boots.

Thanks Glenn, I was just trying to ditch my little dreamer tag before the storm hits the calm and this place goes nutshttp://www.vhlinks.com/vhlforum/smilies/wink.gif

I've been known to do 1, definitely 2 for that one track I don't have. I thought of another one -

You drive to New York from Ohio to visit your girlfriend and start the 10 hr roadtrip with US Festival'83. When you get there you make sure you visit the bootleg shops in Greenwich
Village at least once. That one is completely truehttp://www.vhlinks.com/vhlforum/smilies/smile.gif

Thank god, now I can tell my wife that at least one other person burns backup copies of their boots. She thinks I'm seriously crazy for doing that.

Our rule is this; I don't touch her Beanie Babies and she doesn't touch my bootlegs.http://www.vhlinks.com/vhlforum/smilies/smile.gif

It's a pretty good idea, cdrs don't last forever. When I have the money I want to get a huge spare hard drive or DVDRAM to back them up in .wav form.

I mean the bootlegs not the Beanie Babies http://www.vhlinks.com/vhlforum/smilies/smile.gif

LOL. I'm also addicted and a member of VHA.

Here's another one.
1. When you dedicate a wall in your room to stack up all the boots you have.

Jerel and Uncle Ted, I think you have to go into Your Preferences and re-set your logo, Brett was working on that earlier.

Thanks, I just had fixed that.

I'm doing great Jerel, just waiting for the weather to start getting nice. Here in Edmonton it's been so cloudy and damp I feel like I'm in Seattle. How are you doing my friend?

These are all fuckin' great! I read them off to my wife, and she's come to the conclusion that we're all losers.

This from a woman who makes every concerted effort to see EVERY single episode of "90210", even having the family back home tape and mail them to her.

You gotta love her.

Too bad it's now "9021Over", Fur E.

I'm doing good here Glenn, Weather is always a drag here in Chicago too.

I think it is pretty pathetic when you listen closely to a bootleg from the club days real close just to try and find out what the audience is saying, or for that matter, trying to find out how many people(roughly) were there.

yeah i would have to say i am a boot junkie!!

i had my brother make mini-disc copies of some! i am getting a fire-proof lock-box for my important papers, and the few original disc boots that i have! http://216.71.70.54/ubb/smilies/smile.gif http://216.71.70.54/ubb/smilies/biggrin.gif no kidding!

i think i listen to the boot shows more than the actual albums! and yeah, i do budget the collection, this much for an ebay video, wait a few more weeks then this much for a cd-r...
i used to be this way with comic books, now i am a different kind of geek! http://216.71.70.54/ubb/smilies/tongue.gif

Hey Fur Elise.. My wife said the same damn thing!!! She can't understand why I collect concerts where the set-list is identical!

"It's the same songs.. blah, blah, blah."
