Things I learned:
So Starkid’s AVPM budget was, what, $150?
Those chocolate bars cost $50 plus taxes.
They spent a third of their budget on fucking chocolate.
THAT is why I love them.
Band kids (aka: Starkid fans) vs. Your Family
Me: Favorite way to say red wines with a German accent?
Band Kids: RED VINES
Me: WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE?
Family: Um, right here...?
Band Kids: In the cupboard under some stairs.
Me: Can anyone tell what a Portkey is?
Family: Um...a what?
Band Kids: A Portkey is an enchanted object that when touched will transport the one or ones who touch it to anywhere on the globe decided upon by the enchanter.
Me: Now, can anyone tell me what foreshadowing is?
Family: Something you use in English.
Band Kids: Foreshadowing is a dramatic device in which an important plot point is mentioned early in the story to return later in a more significant way.
Me: Did your turban just sneeze?
Family: No one in this room is wearing a turban...
Band Kids: No, that was simply a fart...
Me: No parties.
Family: Yeah. No parties.
Band Kids: UNLESS UMBRIDGE IS INVITED!!
I'm the only Starkid in my family.
Me: When I was a young human, tears would flow from my eyeballs all the time.
Me: Until one day, when my Mama Umbridge said to ME...
Me: Dolores girl, you put down that cheesecake,
Me: You throw out that fondue,
Me: And you get up off of that couch girl! Get on up!
