Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
If you are wondering how I got the name OZZFestAmy then let me tell
you now. In the year 2001 my grandmother had passed away. (April
15th to be exact). I had lived with her from 1986 when my parents
got divorced and into adulthood. Basically, I was left not knowing
what was going to happen with my life, or where I was going to
live. Almost two months went by and I was crashing on my friends
and families couches. I did a couple members of the radio morning
show's hair so they could go attend the OZZFest. It was the first
date of the tour. It all seemed like destiny or the hand of fate
providing a way for me. Some days it is almost as though my life is
written in the stars. When we got to the OZZFest I saw a sign in
the Village of the Damned that said Help Wanted, and I applied for
the job and got it. It would involve traveling across the country.
The pay would not be all that much. It beat being homeless. My love
of heavy metal music made me an outcast in the small town I had
grown up in. The people on the OZZFest tour became like my family.
They did not judge me because I finally found people that were like
I was. The music kept us united.
In 1991, I had a boyfriend that had been murdered and he was one of
the biggest Black Sabbath and OZZY fans that I know even to this
day. It seemed fitting that I would go on this tour 10 years later.
I do not necessarily cling to a higher power in my day to day life.
I had lost everyone that I love and this seemed to be like divine
Day 2, we were in Apple Valley, Wisconsin. I was back in catering
with some of the cast of characters that were on this tour. What
happens here stays here sort of stuff I was seeing going on daily!
Well, I was sitting there eating my food and all of the sudden OZZY
comes out with a jump rope and begins to jump rope at my table. I
look at the members of PaPa Roach and say, "Where else can ya go
that you can have a RockStar come out and jump rope at your table
while your eating???"
I made it all the way across the country with this festival. I have
some crazy stories for sure. I went to Denver to the Mile High
Stadium with the tour. Keep in mind that this was Manson's first
time back since Columbine. I stayed in the same hotel as OTEP in
Denver. I got to meet Michael Moore even though I had no idea that
he was coming to meet Manson. I sat in catering and ate with him. I
almost lost it when I saw his documentary and realized I had saw a
major part of the history of Music happening that day.
When we left Denver we were headed to one of my most favorite
venues of all time. The Gorge @ George! It was an amazing sight. It
was almost like the Grand Canyon if it had a Concert Venue at the
top of it. I remember seeing MudVayne's Greg Tribbett fishing. In
the backstage area you could rent a fishing pole. I could see he
was being one with nature so I left him alone, but he was very
quiet most of the time. I bonded with the guys from MudVayne the
most though because like me they were from Central Illinois.
My life is like a puzzle piece and I have been just trying to fit
in some place. Most the time I find that people really like my
company while others seem afraid because they have yet to
experience life in any fashion. I find most people walk around on
egg shells not knowing who they really are inside. I am so relieved
to say that I have lived my life the way I was destined to.
Well, if you want to hear anymore about me or my life; I have all
the time in the world. If you would have told me that in this life
I would have seen so much and lived this much I never would have
believed it. It seems like everyone that touches my life is meant
to be in it. I live positively.
When I came to Los Angeles; I came here to break away. I came back
because the city of Angels and Demons called me! I had tried to be
here once before in the 90's, but I had a daughter in Illinois and
I went back there and stayed there a lot of the time until she
The first time I came to Los Angeles I was running away, but even
the tabloid talk shows were able to locate me.
In the 90's I stole a car and drove across the country with a manic
depressive, a bank robber from Detroit, and a guy that thought he
was a Vampire. The two CD's that were spinning for this trip was
Pantera- Far Beyond Driven and Type O Negative- Bloody Kisses. It
was like Natural Born Killers without the killing. That was how I
was introduced to Heavy Metal music that I never had a clue about.
It was a honor to see Phil Anselmo at the Revolver Golden Gods this
As I have grown older and matured, the irresponsible person is no
longer here. I learned so much from the way I lived. People back in
Illinois often ask me to come home. I really do not see myself
going back. There is simply to much pain and disappointment there.
I rarely talk about it because it no longer is here. You can hear
the pain in my voice when I attempt to discuss it. High School was
Hell for me. When I went to college I made it on the Deans list 4
times. I did that for my grandmother. She always told me I was
destined for greatness but I never took it seriously. When I came
to Los Angeles, I left behind years of accumulation and started
over. I did not tell my own father I was leaving. It was hard to
keep it to myself. I have never had a issue with keeping secrets
though. Not telling dad goodbye involved a lot of tears on the
train on the way. I knew there was a likelihood I would never see
any of my family again.
If I actually ever could predict the future a year ago, I never
would of guessed that I would have so many friends here supporting
my thoughts and my ideas. They say home is where ya hang your
heart. Well, and Los Ageles is my home! Everyday that I wake up I
can not wait for the next day to follow. I have been single by
choice though. Some days I think I am waiting for Mr. Right because
he has always been Mr. Wrong. I have been single for nearly 2
years. My grandmother was alone for 20 years after my grandfather
died, but at least she had me. When I went away to college is when
she died and it broke my heart. She used to try to tell me that I
would find a good guy in church. I laugh at that! I went to church
with her and I always thought that the place was going to burst in
flames cause I was there. Hahaha! But church is not my place to
find peace. It is music that soothes the savage beast in me. I am
deeply touched by it and always have been. My dad played music for
me at a very early age. The last thing my parents ever bought me
was a saxophone before they split up. It became my escape and music
was my savior. I am traumatized by all the death in music today.
Last year on my birthday I went to Ronnie James Dio's grave.
There is a person inside me that most people never see, but when I
am happy the world is happy too. I want to make a difference in
other people's lives. I am not a miracle worker but if I can make a
person think and see that their are ways to live and be happy as
well as healthy; I am on the right track to a better future! There
is always more but never less. I will not live by going in reverse.
The past is meant to be learned from to better the future. If you
live in the past you have no future! It is like trying to swim with
weights taped onto your legs. Thank you for your time!!!!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am so tired of the total head trip. People on here are of diverse
culture. Let me explain what it is that I want from this OKCupid
experience. Number one, I am meeting new and cool people. I like to
meet people that can hold a sentence together. You need to be
rather intelligent to be with me. I am far from ignorant and I
pride myself on the strictest of discipline. I consider myself an
overachiever in everything. I want to do everything better than
expected. It is something I pride myself in. When I have friends I
keep them forever because people seem to like me.
I am a rock journalist. I write about music as it completes me and
there are a lot of worthy bands on the scene. I got tired of not
using my gifts that I have been given. I am learning so much. When
I walk in a room things seem to come together. The people I need to
have in my life are coming in like destiny. There are things that I
desire. If you are in my head and it is a open book to you, read it
then. Read me like a book. If you ask me questions and I do not
answer you, then that means I do not trust you. There are people in
my life that I trust. I think about the decisions I make and I
think about the impact on others. A lot of what I do is not totally
If you want a relationship with me and I am not ready for that sort
of a relationship then please respect me. I am about to experiment
with my sexuality and my mind in many ways. I am learning how to be
vocal in my needs and desires.
So, like I said earlier; if you cannot form a sentence when you
communicate with me and hold intelligent conversation, please do
I want steak dinner! I want breakfast in bed! How does that work
for ya? I like strawberries and chocolate. I like wine! Wine me and
dine me. At least put forth an effort to thrill me. I like

I really like heavy metal music the most ! It seems to be what I
own the most in my collection! I also love to collect music and
movie CD's and DVD! I have been involved in the creation of music
throughout my life. My father and mother were what I classify to of
been hippies. My father brought me up listening to a lot of what is
now considered classic rock. I love the psychedelic sounds of the
music from back then! The Moody Blues, Pink Floyd, can be equally
appreciated! I do not enjoy reading for a past time! I read to
learn something new. I am into art of a darker period! I would say
that the art of the Gothic era seems to touch me personally! I can
draw and paint! I can even weld. I think that if it was necessary
though, I could save my life from all of my medical knowledge of
the human body. I am pretty good at figuring out what is wrong with
the sick by reading their symptoms.

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My Grandma as my Spirit Guide.
A good day at the movies
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The future is what I dream about! Not to the point that it is like
an obsession but to the point that I am headed in the right
direction here! Going to College is quite trying though because it
takes up a lot of my time! I think I will truthfully reap the
rewards when I have my degree. I have another 3 years to go. I take
my schooling very seriously. I want to be successful and help
people. It is my life ambition. I am now going to school to study
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At home studying, or watching a Movie! I could be at the movie
theatre though if there is something good at IMAX. I am quite the
homebody! You may catch me at the library or a Starbucks! I love to
walk up and down Hollywood Blvd looking at the talented people. It
is never the same when I go there! Every face is different, every
single time. I found a awesome store to shop at there too. It has
Lip Service Clothing, which is simply my favorite clothing line.
You may even find me at the Rainbow on Sunset Blvd.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

You think we would get along. If you have jealousy issues and you
feel that my textbook poses some sort of threat to our friendship,
you need to go get some counseling for your issues! I will admit it
can be intimidating. You need to understand I have to read nearly
100 pages a week! I am in accelerated classes!
