You'll crack on anything, and you're often witty, even caustic, about it.
your sense of humor is polarizing. You're transgressive, and you've got
a seriously sharp 'edge'--maybe too much for some folks. If they get
you, people think you're one of the funniest (and smartest) people in
the world. If they don't, they think you're an ass. Whatever, right?

|You scored higher than 51% on darkness|
|You scored higher than 29% on spontaneity|
|You scored higher than 58% on vulgarity|
im back. i know you all havent noticed.
that quiz was pretty amusing. i like being described as complex, vulgar and dark. makes we feel like a warlock general or something. roxanne is the cutting edge. dark, spontanious and clean, like a ninja. word.
a lots been going on. doing two bands now. ufs and courier. courier is a project in the works, so nothing really to say except that we practice twice a week, which is awesome. been buying a lot of bass gear: new jazz bass, new gallien-krueger head, new boss eq pedal, and hopefully new cab sometime soon. but yea, more of that to come, i suppose.
going over to sy's birthday kickback. gonna be chillzilla. oh yea, and today i was told that i will be getting my $250 dollars from work for hiring jim lincoln. yay. im gonna give it to kt. we're moving again soon, two months. hopefully to a house, but probably another apartment until we finally get to move into justin's parent's townhouse. fucking sweet.
after watching the four harry potter movie a bunch of dvd, i decided to read the serie. im boring them from my boss, and im on number 2. pretty cool, really simple.
ive been on a sort of show hiatus recently, but i am going to see we are scientists next saturday at el rey. april 9th is mewithoutyou at chain and on the 20th is say anything at chain. sweet.
time to get ready.

|10:36 pm - packing/cleaning sucks|
so im moving out of the apartment and into a room in a house with a guy i knew in high school and his wife. nice house, big room, cheap rent, im in. justins probably coming along too, so we're both packing up, which means a bit of cleaning first. as im going through stuff, i found like a year old meanstreet which i, with my immense attention span, read cover to cover. its gonna be a long move.
ive been really tired since the trip to norcal, no idea why. ive been getting enough sleep.
ive decided to let things happen. trying is too tough, in most cases. ill just let moving happen, let lunch happen, let music happen. everything. i think im going to postpone this songwriting experiment till october 1, when ill be settled in my new residence. until then, ill be packing and moving.
savannah by zao is a really good song.

so today, i talked to my mom. i realized we are the only sane ones left in my family.
you know what, i have a message for you, and youll never read it. someday, when youre a bit more stable than you are now, ill tell you. i want to tell you today, but you wont have any of that. youre to shattered and rebuilt and all that. here it is, take notes:
life sucks. deal.
im probably the most ignorant person in the world. i have the shittiest work ethic, my living situation is less than suitable, i have girl problems, family problems, work problems, band problems, personal problems and computer problems. just like everyone else. you know what i do? i deal. life will never ever ever be perfect, and nothing can change that. not moving out. not switching schools. not getting a new job. and dont get mad at us cause we're not eager to change. our lives are unsteady just like yours, but you know what. we like how were doing. fuck, ive never been more poor, and ive never been more happy. i have 35 bucks a week to live on for the rest of the year, and im looking forward to every week.
me and jay are doing good. real good. you know what it is? its not that we love our jobs. its not that we live with each other. its not that we have tons of cool stuff to play with. its not air conditioning or a nice couch. its that we look at everything that creates the world around us and we both realize that its all good. the corn dogs, drinking water, the busted tvs, the dirty carpet. its all good. we like where we're at. you should too. when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. if life happens to give you dirt, make a little dirt statue and try to sell it for a few bucks.
now if youll excuse me, i need to find a cheap bike on ebay so i can get to work and band practice when gas prices get even more ridiculous.
p.s. this isnt to be mean, im just trying to help you out cause i love you.

|11:50 pm - the tuesday and wednesday dreams are made of|
tuesday was the project. its good. sam shaved. its bad.
today was work, then jamming with courier.
sam ash has a horrible selection. since the last time ive been there, they stopped carrying ernie ball and gibson. bad call. their electric drum sets had no headphones. bad call.
i finally saw sin city, the whole sin city. good shit.
yeeesh. all the hookers in that movie are hot except for the bitch with the blue eyes. duhzorz.
tomorrow is thursday, which means the next day is friday. almost time to wipe the slate. where will you be?
dont worry about it....itll be fine.

|07:21 pm - fuck the scene|
fuck it good and hard.
im looking at the shit the people in the ska scene are giving the new bands. not my band, but those both local and far away who are doing something new. you know, i hate a lot of scenes because of the elitist attitudes that so many of them generally have. maybe i didnt see it before, but it seems to me that the ska scene has surpassed what most other scenes have as far as elitism. i could be wrong, and if i am, im sorry. i thought the worst thing in the world was when all the ska kids went indie and fauxcore. you play a show and you swear like you've become the moving units overnight cause everyone watching you is dressed all scene, with the exception of a few cool oldschoolers. well, thats not the worst thing. the worst thing is this fucking elitism.
let me tell you something. the third wave is gone. GONE. yea, it was a nice run and an AWESOME style which i will always love, but it is in the past now. theres a new wave forming, and the bands who are on the forefront of it are getting shit from these elitists because its not third wave or 2 tone or trad. fuck that. when 2 tone came around, do you think all the hardcore trad fans liked it? probably not. and you can bet your ass the trad and 2 tone people thought third wave was a bunch of shit when it came out. fuck, they still do. all i heard growing up in the 3rdwave scene was how everyone hated how the trad kids did nothing but talk shit on third wave, yet today i see so many of them start this shit with the newer types of ska.
to all you third wave rockers out there. prepare yourselves. in the near future, we are going to be losing a lot of bands. reel big fish, mustard plug, catch 22, pretty soon, these bands and more are going to be gone. theyve been around for too long, and at some point, everyone has to settle down.
the newer styles of ska are on the uprise, but not without the shittalking from the other waves. im not saying everyone has to like it because its ska, im saying everyone should shut up and stop trying to destroy these bands with their shit talking and malcontent.
heres the bottom line: ska isnt dead, but its changing. it always does.
