The Best Cheeseburger I've Ever Had

The Best Cheeseburger I’ve Ever Had

I can’t remember the day, I can’t even remember the month, but I had the best cheese burger ive ever had in fall of 2012.

It was a sunny day and I was out ridding my bike, whenever im downtown I try to stop by recycled sounds, a local music store in downtown Lincoln Nebraska. I always stop by to check and see if any green day paraphernalia had made its way into the store, and like normal there was none, but as I chatted with the owner I learned that American idiot on Broadway was going to be at the lied center in march. I was sure I didn’t have enough money to go but I stopped by the box office anyway just to see how much it did cost. I walked up to the window and asked how much one ticket cost, and not to my surprise they cost 65 dollars. I had 37 with me at the time. I said thank you and turned but then the clerk asked. “What Grade Are you in?” I turned and said “im a senior.” To my amazement I qualified for the student discount witch was HALF OFF! After purchase and tax I had $2.50 and one ticket for American idiot on Broadway! Just four rows back I might add. I was ecstatic! I started biking home thinking of how long of a wait I had when I biked past McDonalds. I turned back I locked my bike, went in, and ordered a double cheeseburger with just ketchup because that’s all I could afford. I was half way done with my cheeseburger when Good Riddance (Time of your Life) started playing lightly inside the store, my favorite Green Day song. It brought a tear to my eye, just the pure odds of that exact song playing within the 3 minutes I was inside the store, it makes you wonder if there is something bigger at work in the world. I finished my cheeseburger and let the song play out, I just closed my eyes and listened. When the song was over I stood up stretched out my arms and exclaimed. “WOOOOO!” The lady mopping the floor asked me. “What was that for?” I just replied with. “That was the BEST cheeseburger ive ever had.”


Extra-Ordinary Girl

Extra-Ordinary Girl


Just another girl out of the millions,

But you...

You're different,

You've got something...

Something the others don't,

Something extra.

This extra puts you ahead of them all,

It makes you the first of millions to catch my eye.

Whatever this is,

Whatever makes you an

Extra-Ordinary Girl,

Keep it up,

I like that I like you.

You being apart of my life

Gives me the extra motivation,

To impress,

To stand an inch taller than the rest,

So hopefully,

You'll see me,

Seeing you.


A letter to Mr. Armstrong


Billie Joe Armstrong

Hello! My name is Ethan Kyle Harvey Memming. I am a 17 year old, from Lincoln Nebraska. I've been listening to your verse ever since 5th grade, I remember getting on the bus in the morning and hearing I walk this empty street on the boulevard of broken dreams These lyrics are the foundation of my life. As a child, my mother wasn't exactly perfect, various times my mother has Gone off the deep end. She wouldn't drink every night like a stereotypical alcoholic, but every couple of years she would benge really badly for weeks at a time. I don't remember much from the first few times she did this, except two specific things, one time it wanted a drink of water so I took this clear water looking stuff out of the fridge, lets just say it wasn't water, and that the living room light was out and it was always dark.

About three years ago was the first time I really knew what was happening but it kind of bounced off me like it didn't matter, then it happened again, and again. Then, on December of 2011, my mom got help professionally for once, rehab, She has been sober for about 14 months or so!

I'm am also a welfare child and the government has always been there watching over my mother, she is on disability, so the state pays for our living (barely). I always get about 10 or so bucks each month for clothes or whatever the hell I want, but its still hard. I had earned enough money to get tickets to a Green Day show in Omaha Feb. 4 but we both know that was cancelled.

I don't know what your plan is for your recovery (If you're planning to recover per say), and thats your business, but I just want to say, you don't need alcohol or drugs and shit like that to live your life. You are an awesome person, and you were gifted with an amazing voice. I hope you choose to be clean, not for me but for yourself. Don't let the alcohol define you, don't let Radio One be the last big Green Day story! Good Luck Billie!

With Hope

Ethan Memming


My Story

A life listening to Green Day

All the time people ask me why Green Day is so important to me, and i can never really answer. I'm writing this for the people who gave a shit, and the ones who don't mind careing.

My first song

2005, I was in uhhh i think fourth grade, something like that, but it was back when my mother didn't have a car so i had to ride the bus to school, and they would always play this song on the radio, I walk this empty street bla la la la la and broken dreams, it would always be stuck in my head for the rest of the day. Then one day, I was at my friend Alex’s house, and i was humming it and he said “Do you like Green Day?” and i said “What day?” he said “Thats their song.” so he proceeded to put in American Idiot, and in a flash I learned that all these songs i had liked where by the same band!

50 Yards From Him

For the Next couple years I acquired some mabie three Green Day albums American Idiot, 21st century breakdown, and Dookie. But then in 2009 my cozen said she was going to see them in Omaha at the Qwest center, and i jumped on the opportunity, and on MY BIRTHDAY august 13. I waited and waited for the day to come and the sleepless nights before the event made it even harder but time passed and the day finally came. I cannot describe the way I felt, it was a sensation of awe and amazement but these words simply do not compare to the true feelings I had that fateful night. Shplegalmic,,, thats close but still fake words don't even work.

My Addiction

After that point i had to have more! I soon bought all the other Green Day albums, and any green day item i could, posters, shirts, everything, i bought a broken copy of American Idiot because i didn't think it deserved to be thrown away. Then the research, once i emptied my town of all affordable Green Day products I went online figuring out who i was obsessing over. Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt, and Frank wili... third uuuuh TRE COOL! I learned everything wiki could tell me, Rodeo, trucker dad, high school, all the shit.

A State of Pause

I soon realized i had exhausted all my resources by 2010, nothing really left to do but relisten to the songs and buy shiz off the internet. It stayed this way till 2012, but then came American Idiot on Broadway! It reloaded me and i soon made the trip from Lincoln Nebraska all the way to Saint Louis Missouri. The drive was HELL, but I got there, two days early... I went to the hard rock cafe, went up the stupid arch thingy and Sight saw. TRAVELERS NOTE, if you wanna save 50 bucks a night stay the night at a hotel in Illinois across the river.

On Pins and Needles

It's now november 2012, I own Uno, Dos, and have the money for Tre. I have tickets for another showing of American Idiot on Broadway, and Have tickets to see them live in febuary, god forbid he isn't out of rehab by then. I actively create fan art and bleh blue bla bla. You don't care! But i don't care if you don't care!

P.S. I love Green Day more than you, nana nana boo boo, stick your head in doo doo.
