His name was Marty and he said that he was always ready to party, but he was a halfwit, nincompoop, buffoon, imbecile, moron and a simpleton. Marty always enjoyed the party, he was never tarty, but he was far from being a smarty. He was at all the parties, but he went there to live off others and he never gave anything in return. Everybody else chipped in for the coke, but Marty just snorted without coughing up any dough and he was such an ignoramus that he tried to snort the whole pile, instead of the line I put in front of him. This incident lead to me calling him Marty the moocher. He was a sponge, he liked listening to grunge and his look was unkempt and messy. He outlived Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain and Layne Staley the Alice in Chains singer and he always listened to Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Mudhoney and Screaming Trees. He was the first one to jump into a mosh pit, which he always felt was the real indicator of a successful concert.
I never considered jumping into a mosh pit to be acceptable concert behavior, as I have seen too many people get bruised, battered, or worse, so jumping into a bunch of sweaty people has never been my thing. I go to concerts to hear the music, not to get punched in the face. Marty was a Headbanger, one of those slam-dancers that enjoyed pushing and slamming into each other and he had no qualms about knocking anyone over. This all ended the day the bikers got involved and this big guy knocked off Marty’s glasses. While he was searching for them on the ground, he got stepped on multiple times and kicked in his face. His nose started bleeding and when he held his head back to stop the blood, another biker kicked him in his gonads. Marty doubled over in pain and he got kicked again and this time he ruptured his spleen, which caused a lot of internal bleeding. I went to visit him in the hospital, after the concert and I started calling him Ignormarte the guy who knew how to party and somehow that name stuck.
