A new update.
Things are going pretty well :)
Books are costing me SIX HUNDRED DOLLARS this semester, which obviously brings the major gay.
But school should be alright... As always, I'm looking forward to the semester starting :) Although I'm sure I'll be hating it again in about a month.
CCF is doing good. A label from Austria is going to take our latest 3 songs and put them on a split, then distro it through Century Media all over europe, plus make like 25,000 full colour posters and promote it and shit. Which is obviously fucking excellent.
Also, we are currently considering doing a split 7" with a metalcore band from Japan. Obviously sweet.
I've got to make my mix cd's for saturday on saturday, haha.
Speaking of which, we're playing with buried inside and the chin at the liquor box on saturday... come if you're awesome
(you should come, i dont want to wait till sunday to see you <3)

stuff has happened lately I guess.
Tomorrow we are playing in Toronto with Ion Dissonance.
Thursday we are playing Windsor with Ion Dissonance (everyone shall be there, OR ELSE!!!)
Friday we are playing London with Ion Dissonance.
Saturday we are playing St. Kitt's with Ion Dissonance.
I like Ion Dissonance. Can you tell?
In other news.
Christmas without having money to buy things for people (well, enough things for people) sucks.
Having no car sucks, too. (Although I save alot of money!)
YOU don't suck. :) <3
My friends are rad.
My family is equally rad, if not radder!
Work is shitty.
School is done! Woot! Hopefully I'll graduate in the next few years... grr...
Wow, this post sucks.
Informal poll :
Grow my hair out long and 80's wanker style or not?
Happy holidays, suckers.

|Hello from Lynchburg, Virginia!
Tour is awesome.
The first day in Detroit I drank too much, passed out in the rain, and forgot everything that happened.
Each other day has been just as cool.
Cincinnati is the ghetto-ist city ever, and we played in the middle of the ghetto-ist section.
I've picked up an American accent.
I'll be seeing all of you soon!
Come to the show in our space next monday and show me some love
Keep it krunk!

|You see, normally I'm quite positive...
A brief summation of this week:
Monday - Car explodes on way to work. Go to studio instead of studying for exam.
Tuesday - Dad drives me to work; walk 1 hr. to school so I can fail an exam (FAIL UTTERLY). Bus to my grandparent's house, go to hospital where very unfortunate incidents occur.
Wednesday - Work all day, spend all night at grandfathers house.
Thursday - Get new suit (alright, not all bad; I look damned fine in a suit), funeral home
Friday - Funeral home all day, go to sarnia. Show goes awesome. Leave Sarnia, van explodes.
Get 1 hr. of sleep, go to funeral service at the church where large pastor yells about embracing the lord.
Get lost on way to studio, mix recording, imbibe large quantities of alchohol and feel very inebriated.
Now here I am; I should sleep.
This whole experience leads me to wonder if I'm really doing anything important in life.
Do I have -any- idea what I want to do? Work sucks, school sucks; well, basically everything but my friends and family (the band is sweet, but it seems just super-lame to be completely about a band; I focus too much on that already).
[Unrelatedly, I've decided maybe it's a good idea after all, and I worry about what other people think too much]
Anyone who wants to help me flyer this thursday's show should let me know, I need the help + some solid company.
PS. All of my friends here in LJ-land are invited to a show on the 29th (yesh, a monday) where you can see me after my long, long, long (11 day) absence. It will be in our jamspace, down the hall from the Vatican.
It'd be nice if some of you came, because it's been like MONTHS since I've seen some of you, anyways.
The next hour calls for more alchohol, and copious amounts of sleep.

|My Grandmother, Roseanne Black
Passed away November 9th, 11:55 PM.
She was an wonderful woman, who lived her life to the fullest,
and inspired everyone she had known.
Thank you for everything,

If I was a gay pirate, my life would be much more exciting.
Shitty and full of gay sex that I probably wouldn't enjoy very much, but more exciting.
I'ma want lots of whiskey now.
See you all in hell.
PS. Call me, I miss you.

Is my greatest enemy.
|Wednesday, August 18th, 2004|
I tell myself the most beautiful things are the ones we can never have,
the things that are destroyed under careful scrutiny;
a snowflake, melting under the heat of an awestruck admirer,
or a flower, wilting under the gaze of one who would keep it fresh forever.
What this applies to is up the individual, and the actual state of it has no bearing upon it's meaning. It's the thing that makes your heart sink when you draw near it. It's something to remind us to never be complete. It's something to keep us grasping straws at random. It's something for us to undyingly thirst for.
Sometimes, I tell myself this.
Perhaps I'm wrong.

|If things were only a little different, how different they would be...
Today was a combination of gayness and sweetness.
The gayness occurred at work, where I was stuck 2 hours late, and had to work like one of those kids in indonesia who are fed drugs to keep them sewing cheap pants and shoes all day, or else they get killed. So that sucked.
Jeff brought an engine to store at my shop, though.
Anyone in need of a 4-bolt 350 let me know!
So then I went home, made rice, and had a rad talk with Sarah for awhile, then I talked to Sarah for awhile (Good luck in T., both of you) ... Then it turned out it was 8, so Emily (who for the first time EVER wasn't wearing a hoody!!!)and I went out for some terrible bubble tea, I got Taro and she got Pudding, and they were gross and we didn't drink them. They were also full of milk, which I didn't realize when I ordered it. Blech, I was very disapointed. We went to Sarah F's briefly after that, and ran into Ashleigh (who was hilarious), and her boyfriend, who drives one sweet car. Oh, and Britney wore hot pants the entire time!!!
So then Emily and I drove around taking pictures of things, and we went to A&P and took pictures of the produce... It was fun :)
I hope everything went well for you tonight. <3 Current Mood: restless

So today I worked alot, and then went home and made teh stir-fry of the century.
And I watched Death in Gaza. Everyone else should, too.
This weekend was sweet... An amazing hang-out (with some potentially dissapointing results, but awesome nonetheless), and a killer show. Plus, tour is going to occur again in December. Florida in the winter time. Hells yeah.
And the name of my post refers to someone who has a fetish for having sex with flaming dead cows.

So many things have been happening lately.
Over the past three days, I've almost quit my job around 6 times.
Some fat italian guy threw screwdrivers at me.
Steve went to jail for 14 months (an excellent reason not to commit armed robbery)
I've been talking with some interesting new people, and some old people have become interesting once again.
I would really like the weather to get a little better; this not being able to swim thing is really starting to get on my nerves. I need to build up my tan for winter, too! Oh, the humanity.
In other news, tonight I had fun. It was good to hang out with you again.
And come to the show this sunday, those of you who aren't at Warped Tour.

On friday, Jeff and I bought a van.
This morning, we cut it apart with a plasma torch.
On thursday, we thieved a fridge.

|The weekends events (and lack thereof)
Last week was stupid busy, but insanely sweet.
When else do you get Ion Dissonance and Glass Casket to sleep at your house, see them both, play a sweet festival, play TWO shows in Hamilton (although the first one was more of a practice, considering there was like 5 kids there... the second was a house party that more than made up for it, though).
I was so tired on sunday, I slept ALL day, and stayed in watching movies with my family (which was actually really nice).
Thank whatever higher power may or may not exist for today being a holiday...
More sleep + relaxation + I FINALLY got the damned DV camcorder working properly.
Which means I will now be taping and selling dvd's of shows in Windsor (possibly in Detroit, as well). Apparently Britney will be helping me with this, which is good, because my time is already well-used. Still, I think it will be rad.
ANNNDDDD... pretty soon, we will be recording in Montreal with Tony Ion, so we can shop labels. I think we'll be signed in the near future. More touring! What what?!? Current Mood: amused

|God bless David Holyfield, the man who invented the wheel.
This last week has been such a blur I can barely recollect it.
BTBAM and Glass Casket 2 days in a row was sweet; the GC dudes are some of the raddest people I've ever met. The two days of work on no sleep, however, were some of the worst times ever. Tomorrow will likely be similar.
The show tonight was cool, but there's so much shit occuring I'm becoming exaspirated and depressed. I'm likely to become one very angry dude soon if things continue along these lines. Tomorrow will certainly be a telling experience.
Oh, and I wrote a poem.
It's called "The Dark Miasma of my Life"
This life is dark and full of miasma.
Oh how I wish these dead flowers would bloom
Your face is like a picture framed in blood
I'm an emo fag,
Please kill me now.

|A night of revelry
Why am I posting in my journal at 8 am?
Because I just got home. Not really what I wanted to occur, but that's what happened.
So I went to this giant party last night. There had to have been at least 300 people there at it's pinnacle, and I'm guessing there was probably more than that.
I knew *two* of them. So, even though I did my best, I really didn't end up having too much fun, despite having consumed most of a bottle of scotch (for some reason, I just wasn't getting drunk last night, no matter what I was drinking). I suppose it could have been alot more fun, but I just wasn't in the mood I guess.
The high point of the night was definitely finding out that the tent I was supposed to sleep in was covered in beer, the result of which was me sleeping in my car.
Now I'm going to eat some pad thai and go back to sleep. Current Mood: cynical

|Oh my GAWD!
Do I hate drama.
This makes me question, again, why I have one of these things.
Yet I will continue to post despite any rational arguments I make to cease my posting.
Further, yesterday was alot of awesome in a small box. Thanks to everyone who made it so :)
AAAANNNNNDDD I got a free guitar today; it's nice and acoustic. I came to possess it under less than optimal circumstance, but I'm going to have to look on the bright side on this one.
In other news, I have a house to myself for the next week or so. The awesome will definitely be brought during that time. AND I get to see BTBAM and Glass Casket twice that week.
Actually, the next two weeks are going to be really amazing.
