letters arranged in a specific order [04 Nov 2008|06:54pm]
Things aren't bad, other than being poor.
The girlfriend is good, the job is tolerable most of the time.
Second anniversary with Sarah was yesterday. I never actually update this anymore.
I( just had an interview at Best Buy, with another soon, and then one at Starbucks tomorrow.
At this point, I'm mostly content without a car. I'm drifting from pretty much all of my friends, and I'm not sure why. I really only feel like I just need Sarah. I think she understands.
I'm sorry I didn't pay more mind to Ron Paul earlier on. He's the only candidate that I know of that so much as mentioned the national debt, which is probably the biggest issue I see that gets ignored.
I really don't like money, the idea of it. I understand why it was first invented, the initial ease it provided to seafaring trading peoples. I respect innovation, certainly. But now, all it is is just a thing for people to hold over others heads and feel superior without any real reason.
Just another thing to divide us as humans.
I also don't like the idea of countries. False borders and ideas giving people more reasons to hate based on nothing at all. It's fucking pointless.
With any luck, I'll end up in Congress at some point. Then I'll start pissing everyone off.
I need to start a band.
I want to ride my bike somewhere far. Just me, an iPod, and my thoughts.

We're running through a city of head wounds, holding hands. [29 Jun 2007|06:21am]

Sounds of the Underground in less than two weeks. GWAR, The Acacia Strain, Job For A Cowboy, Heavy Heavy Low Low, Darkest Hour, probably someone else I like, and some dumb bands like Shadows Fall. Sarah might go, which is sweet. Saturday is the final day of CD Warehouse, which is sad. Blockbuster is alright. Half Life 2 is great. Burn In Silence's drummer will destroy you. Curl Up and Die seems pretty cool. Fuck bitches. Being waken up by uberthundeR at six AM: Priceless. Also, realizing that power metal songs you like are covers of Seal songs is pretty lol too. And Evan Almighty was pretty good.

I don't remember when I last posted. High school is over, CD Warehouse is closing, I had an interview at Blockbuster yesterday, and I've been going out with Sarah for more than seven months. I've got a Helio, which is pretty sweet. It's what I'm doing this from. Yeah. I still waste all my money on shows and stuff. Okay, bye.

Josh, Jesse and me have combined forces to bring the world what it needs;
another rap group.
Called Buttnasty, all of our songs will (theoretically) revolve around bitches, hoes, guns, bitches AND hoes, drugs, and combinations of the above.

HORSE the Band in March.

Is that you, Moatilliata? [28 Jan 2007|09:21pm]
[ mood | hungry ]

A few things.
The Mars Volta is amazing.
Like, fucking incredible.
Rush is the best band ever.
Getting towed in Fort Lauderdale sucks.
However, accidentally getting Bill Kelliher from Mastodon to sign a Converge CD is pretty cool.
And then having Brann Dailor stop talking to you to decide whether or not Genesis is playing.

So, I'm definitely in love with that one girl.
She's pretty amazing and knows it.

Yeah. I feel like a zombie.
I'm half asleep and underfed, with very little keeping me awake.
I was at work at nine thirty this morning.
I'm off the clock now, but I'm still here.
I think Jesse, Nicole, Sarah Trainor and me are doing something tonight, but what I don't know what.

HORSE the Band > you.
Meeting every member of Bleeding Through at Ozzfest and getting kicked in the face by some asshole crowd suffer, also > you.
Seeing The Phenomenauts for the second time the night before my birthday > you.
Getting an iPod and XBox 360 for my 18th birthday, much > you.
Pretty much sums it up.

KILLWHITNEYDEAD last night was amazing.
My computer is still dead.
I'm buying a new one from Zach.
I know, this is the seventy-fifth time I've said that.
But like, I actually am going to this time.
Then, an iPod.
And an XBox 360.
Then a car.
Then college.
Disregard that last one.
I recently drove to Atlanta, Georgia to see Slayer.
I. Hate. Georgia.
My dad doesn't know I went.
Hell would break loose if he found out.
I saw REMEMBERING NEVER and XBishopX a week or so ago.
I got to meet Mean Pete, one of my heroes.
It ruled.
Sounds of the Underground in just under two weeks.
I might go to Orlando for that, I might not.
I have my Ozzfest ticket already.
Did I mention I hate Georgia?
That's about it.

Show me heaven, I'm through with this hell. [30 May 2006|12:00am]
So, life is getting interesting. School is almost out, I saw Bayside Friday night, and my mom and little sister got in a car accident today. Vic's eye is swollen shut and her lips look like a botox job gone bad. They'll be okay and the other driver, a young kid, was at fault, but there's still the matter of the car, which was towed. I quit Albertson's and work at CD Warehouse now. My computer is STILL dead. On Friday, I get to see Evergreen Terrace, Casey Jones, Calico System, and Know the Score.

I won't be another number, I will never close my eyes. [23 May 2006|11:15am]
[ mood | sore throaty ]

"Mean Pete" Kowalsky, of Until the End/REMEMBERING NEVER/XBishopX, was there. He was just watching, but I don't care, because he's Mean fucking Pete.

So, Poison the Well was, oh, what's that word? Incredible. Though, for some reason they didn't play "Nerdy". During both Criteria's and Fall of Troy's sets, I spoke to Nathan (vocals) and Erik (keyboards) of HORSE the Band. At some point or another, I spoke with all five members. I brought a Nintendo controller, and had them all sign it. When I first met Erik, as I waited in line, we spoke and then he said something along the lines of, "Well, I have to go find diarrhea medicine." It was pretty great. Later on, when I asked if he ever got it, Nathan started laughing his ass off and said, "It's funny because it's true!" But yeah, more or less, I hung out with HORSE the Band for two hours. We spoke on many things, like the many names of their "Beautiful Songs By Men" EP, (originally titled "The Hammer EP", then briefly called "I Am A Small Wooden Statue In A Clearing By A Dried Up River Bed" or something similar) how their bass player Dashiell's middle name, Han, is a Star Wars reference and how he's related to the Disney family, how they used to cover "Survivor" by Destiny's Child, and how everyone hates their drummer. Every once in a while, a couple of girls would come up with a shirt, looking to get it signed, I'd hand them my marker, and then almost sign it. At one point, Nathan told me that he wouldn't blow my cover, but nobody came after that point (figures). He told me that HORSE the Band as a whole hates Fall of Troy's guitarist, for he is a self-absorbed douche. Four girls walked up saying, "I don't know which one of you guys got us onto the guest list, but we really appreciate it" and more groupie blah blah, and they asked if it was me. "Yeah, it was me." We were all laughing. TWAS GRAND. After a while, Erik left and Nathan got bored, so he picked up the cardboard box he was using as a footrest, put it near his head, then threw it at his merch guy, who was mid-conversation. Then, the merch guy was all, "Oh it's on now." and jumped over the table and they had a little mock fight, lit cigarette in hand. At some point, Nathan talked about how, because The Culture Room's stage is so high, he just wanted to lay down and hide, so I explained that there is a raised step at the front, allowing him to do so. And, during the show, he said, "I learned a new ninja trick today; invisibility," and dropped to the ground. When he got back up, "You didn't know where I went." There was this freakishly skinny punker there that kept yelling "CUTSMAN!!" and Nathan's responses were great. Just simply, "No" or "you get nothing," and even "you are entirely too skinny to demand anything of anyone" at one point. Oh, I got a HORSE the Band hoodie and a Poison the Well hoodie, despite being in horrendous debt. Oh, and before I forget, this guy Tad that works at Albertson's, and is also a tattoo artist, has agreed to hook me up with some ink, which will rule. But yeah, blah blah, HORSE the Band finished their set and then Poison the Well played, and, well, they were Poison the fucking Well. They opened with "Zombies are Good for Your Health", and played like five new songs. They played "Slice Paper Wrists," "The Realist," "12/23/93," and a few more I can't remember, and closed out with "Artist's Rendering of Me." I GOT TO SCREAM FOR "SLICE PAPER WRISTS!" There was some short girl behind me that I picked up, so she could see, for most of their songs, and I didn't realize, until she jumped on stage, that she was wearing an übershort skirt.
This just in: apparently, my XBishopX CD has, in the last forty eight hours, become unbearably scratched. Damnit. Ooh, June 13th marks the release date of the new Zao CD, and is twelve days before I see them with Demon Hunter, Becoming the Archetype (who is really good), and August Burns Red.
And, this marks the third Culture Room show I've gotten a pick from.
Uh, Dominic, Ash and I went to the mall yesterday, and after Dominic's mommy picked him up, the remaining crew members went and saw Silent Hill, which was, since Saw, the most fucked up movie I've seen in a long time. That's all I can remember now.

So... Bleeding Through was incredible.
Because he said he'd rather do it than not go to the show, Brian rode in the trunk of Kevin's car for about two hours, to Fort Lauderdale.
When we eventually got there, Ryan Wombacher and Brandan Schieppati came outside and stood next to us, and then Ryan kneeled to the ground so he could catch a lizard. Brandan said they don't have them in California. Then, Brian said you could find them in any bait shop. Intrigued, Mr. Schieppati returned with, "Well, what would you feed them to?" So, I told him, "unruly children." And then, Wombacher pulled a skateboard out of nowhere and rode off into the vast parking lot. Then, we got in line and all that jazz. Once in, I found Sherrice and her friend Jamie (that I later learned is scared of me), and bought the self-titled Between the Buried and Me, in hopes of signing. About this time, Haste the Day was playing, and they sounded really good. By the end of their set, I managed to get to the front. Between the Buried and Me played "All Bodies", "Selkies: The Endless Obsession", "Autodidact", "Camilla Rhodes", and two other songs I can't remember. THEY DIDN'T PLAY "MORDECAI" OR "AD A DGLGMUT"!!! That's just wrong. But still, they were amazing. Tommy Rogers is great. Then, Everytime I Die played. Their one guitarist looks like a beefed-up Brent Hinds (redhead guitarist from Mastodon). He wore a Devo shirt, black pants and some straight up 80s style white shoes with a black stripe. The tongue was pulled up, for added cheesiness, I suppose. They were pretty good, I've never really listened to them other than their shitty Hot Damn! CD. I ended up right in the center, because I'm amazing, and then Bleeding Through played. Brandan Schieppati stood before me, and yelled, with the lights out, "I DON'T GIVE A FUUUUCK!" I got to scream.for.every.song. They played "For Love and Failing", "Love in Slow Motion", "Kill to Believe", "She's Gone", "Tragedy of Empty Streets", "Return to Sender" (one of my personal faves from The Truth), "Love Lost in a Hail of Gunfire", "Sweet Vampirous", "Rise", "Revenge I Seek", and, to finish everything off, "On Wings of Lead". During the final chorus, they stopped the music and everyone, EVERYONE sang together. It was amazing, to say the least. I got some sweet videos, with terrible audio, of course, of BTBAM and BT. At one point, I think during "Kill to Believe", Scott Danough's necklace fell onto my shoulder. So, because I rule, I gave it back. After the show, Scott came up to me and gave me a pick he played with (that I later punched a hole through, and have worn as a necklace since), and took me to the merch table. He then told the guy there to give me whatever I wanted for free. So, I got a hoodie, a shirt, and and a hat. Plus, Scott and I hung out for awhile. I got all my Bleeding Through stuff signed by Scott. Sweet picture of us up on my MySpace. Yeah. So, uh, I got the new Atreyu album, and sadly, it kind of sucks. If The Curse started a downward spiral, A Death-Grip on Yesterday is the bottom. The new Dead to Fall album comes out Tuesday, and from what I hear of it, The Phoenix Throne will be pretty damn good. Uh, yeah. Bye.

You won't live through this. [13 Mar 2006|04:42am]
So yeah. I'm still figuring out using the internet on my phone. MySpace takes entirely too long. But, there is hope; Zach is going to sell me a computer for seventy five bucks. However, I have to buy birthday gifts for my mom and little sister, and have two shows coming up. After I get all of this out of the way, I will finally get my damn iPod. I know I've been saying that since December, but there really isn't anything else I can think of to get in the way. Bleeding Through in ten days.
