Subject:Some thoughtage
Security:Public
Mood: artistic

I feel like writing tonight. Right. Desire is such an overbearing emotion. It can be applied to so many aspects in our lives. It's like you see this or that, or think this or that.....and you NEED to have it. I guess some would say that we are such an insidiously consumerist society. The whole problem with consumerism is that it is so captivating and importunate. There is such a lust for everything, if I have this or that it is going to make this or that better. We much too often want something better than what we already carry. It's such a destruction of our minds. There is such an unquenchable thirst for so much more all of the time. We become attached to those feelings. It is possible to break down that feeling. It is simple and hard in the same exact sentence. One must matriculate into the thought of not letting your desire's control you, and learn how to control your desire's and realize a couple of things. It is not the whole idea of wanting that is bad, it is at what degree...and well, if you are overly controlled by your desire...all you will end up doing is become agonized. We are all subject to these feelings at one point or another. How often do you have everything you need right in front of your eyes, and you just can't see how good it is because you overlook it and you begin to want things that you do not have in your possession yet? Some of us are smart enough to realize this and can show a great sense of gratitude towards what really is part of us now and not become too wrapped up in wanting other things. And well, sometimes you need to stumble and realize that. And other times, some people might never learn and just keep living for a fantasy that does not exist because they will not let it exist because even if they are able to obtain it, they fall back and become consumed by that feeling of wanting something they can't have reiteratively. It's just a cycle in most of our minds. It's so hard to break, but once you do, you aren't in for as many disappointments. You begin to realize the importance of what you have...and what the things right in front of your own eyes could mean if you really took the time to actually apprehend what they are. Take a look sometime, there is more than you believe...nine times out of ten.

Mood: content

Just got 311 ticket from store. Also, Jason purchased the new Mars Volta album while we were out, really good cd. It kicks much ass. The cd is just full of a lot of strange parts and intricate melodies and a lot of the guitar work on the album could easily resemble led zeppelin....more of the heavier side of things. Some of it seems Radioheadish and noise oriented...which is real cool. Also, there are some points in the album that remind me of the really odd Yes parts...a good progressive album. All in all it's a good cd. I'm gonna take another listen now. Right. Champs of Steel.

I want it to thunderstorm really soon and giant rain stormingness. It's always extremly relaxing to me, and yeah....it would be good if that would happen soon lol Today is Sunday, not much to do. Still looking for a job. Still no luck. I'll probably just end up practicing and reading a lot today...it's ok, I haven't had a day to myself in awhile and I want one, so that is what me do. Today is also a weightlift day...strong time. lol. Hmph.

Difficult enough to feel a little bit

Disappointed, passed over.

When I've looked right through,

Subject:Fun Time In THE FOREST
Security:Public
Mood: sore

I am all sore and death....weightlifting plus 2 nights in a row running around the forest playing capture the flag with foam weapons and a bunch of people. That'll do it to you. Hah. But yeah, life is pretty stagnant lately...nothing new happening...no job is coming my way yet, I need money real bad and nobody is hiring. Hmm...just a lot of hanging out and jamming and playing video games and eating and fighting in the forest...too bad it's not in a loin cloth outfit....yet. Maybe eventually if we get more people to do it. Hmm...so yeah, me = all sore. I have been real busy the past week. Believe it or not, I miss the Justine and having her around....talking to her, covert missions, moon eyes, reading her kick ass poetry, hearing her sing, making cookies, the hugs and support, pointing out how sharks cannot attack certain spots and how they aren't as big as they are in deep blue sea hahahaha yeah...all that and whatever. Just miss her bein around, that's all. Don't know how anything is going to pan out really...but all in all, what can you do? We'll see. Even though whatever it is that is happening is happening, I am excited for whatever reason about her coming home. Just too bad I don't get any breakfast or the suprise wakeup thing or anything hahah but ILL DEAL , I really will. Yeah, I am totally fine. Hmm...whatever happens, happens. But yeah, 311 is on August 1st...it's going to kick a ton of ass, I love the new cd. Carly is coming here very soon, that will be rockin awesome. I have been weightlifting a lot more lately and I am becoming a true warrior when it comes to fighting with foam weapons. These next few weeks shall be quite of interest. 311.

This weekend has been so awesome so far. Lot's of fun and coolness going on. On Friday I hung out with Nick and Olivia which was cool. During the day today I did absolutly nothing...I hung out with Ben, Adrienne, and Evan tonight and tthen went out and saw Angra which holy shit was by far the best show I have been to in a long time ...they are a Metal band from Brazil and are incredible...the bass player was phenomenal and the singer was hitting some high ass notes , they are spectacular. The keyboard player was extremly well too, not one of them was bad, every single person in that band was extremly talented. I just got home from that and now it is time to sleep, I just had to post on it now after getting home just to say wow.....i am speechless on how good they were. I can't wait to rock out at the Agora tomorrow night, it is going to be a blast, I am out now, bing

Subject:Teeth are stupid
Security:Public
Mood: touched

Went to dentist man today becaue my jaw feels like it is going to fall off. Well, it isn't falling off but I need to get my wisdom teeth pulled because i have a major infection going on in my left jaw and it's making me not be able to sing...usually I don't get something done but when it starts messing with music thats when I am just going to get it done. I'd probably just rip em out of my face myself but I dont have the right tools so I figure I'll let some guy give me drugs and make me sleep and pull em out for me so I can see beautiful pictures that don't make sense when I wake up and am still groggy. Went to A Colder Year practice tonight, rocked, we wrote a very cool new song and I can't wait to play the show on November 24th at the Agora with em, it'll be great. Cool stuff. On my end of things, I have really been running these ACY songs and also working on a lot of scaling and more music theory stuff. It feels good to be doing music a lot more again. I am trying to learn a lot of jazzier stuff lately and metal, just for the hell of it. I like being well rounded. Suuavvee.

I feel like I haven't talked to anyone in the longest time lol The past week has been crazy, but in the coolest ways. I finally got a job at best buy, making good money and working about 35 hours a week, so I am set financially finally. And on top of all, I am in A Colder Year now and it totally kicks ass, we are going to rock so hard, I guarentee it. So, I have practice for that Sundays, Mondays, and Wednesdays. Sweet chili. Well, I am all sleepy tired because I work from like 5am - 11am, so it is time for me to be asleep. I am taking a nap, spring is cooler then winter. Winter is dumb.

Mood: sick

Last night was cool, saw ACY at phantasy...went and saw the ring afterwards with the group of people I know. Then today I woke up with the deadly sick, so I called off work tonight cause there is no way I am lifting bags all night, I can't even lift mt leg off the ground. It doesn't matter though cause I am going to be better tomorrow because I am going to try out for A Colder Year as a guitar player. Hopefully that works out. Cool stuff. Now is sleep time so I feel better. I am leave.

Well...my job isn't that bad when I am not at it, so I will keep having the job until I find something else that's better...but for now, its not that bad. It's just killing my back like crazy lifting so much shit, I'm not used to it. And thanks to Tony, I am going to see Blind Guardian now cause I have found that I downloaded some mischieouvess versions of their songs hahah that aren't really them and when I checked out their actual stuff, they are very cool. Stratovarius is definatly one of my favorite bands now, I don't know if many could replace them, only problem is they will never come to the U.S., so I will just go there and see them. Ok, well I think it is 4:45 in the morning, I worked all night last night and then stayed up all night, how does that work? It does. Too bad, you cant tell me. Cause yeah.

I also finally have my tix to go see Trans-Siberian Orchestra...also, I got a ticket to go and see the band Angra up at the Agora. I am not sure if I care to go see Blind Guardian at all though, they pretty much blow but I was invited. Don't really care much for em though so I probably won't end up going. Rockin concerts coming. Woo.

Subject:My Philosophy
Security:Public
Mood: annoyed

Isn't it funny how the people that are depressed and pissed off ALWAYS seem to have a problem with the ones who are happy and the time and want to just live life and have fun? It is weird that they always have to try and bring people like us down. No matter what the situation. They see someone who is happy and call them "inconsiderate assholes" or they say things like "why do you laugh at me whenever I am pissed off about something" and "you treat me like im an asshole", well I have an answer....because it is pointless to go so pissed off about something that you lose your head and explode, absolutly 100% pointless. And chances are, when you lse your head over nothing or just act like a jackass, well...chances are you probably are an asshole. Case and point.

Subject:Weekend and Job, finally...
Security:Public

This weekend was awesome. Friday night I hung out with a whole bunches of people which was rockin. Then Saturday I went out and filled out a ton of applications at random stores and such and then went out around 10 over to Carly's and played music for a couple people with Tony and Scott, much rocking. Then I got a call this morning from Pet Supplies Plus for a job offer and I took it cause I need money and it's $6 an hour and easy and I get to hang out with animals. So basically my job is...hang out with animals, sell animals, put animals in cages, turn cans on the shelf and basically do everything a stock person would do in any retail store. It's easy, enough hours, and good pay for now. I am sure I will move up quick, the manager already thinks I kick ass and was giving all sorts of compliments, yeeeeaaahhhh....so now I have a job and can work, finally and save to buy my rig and another acoustic and electric guitar and pay for my voice lessons. Now, it's time to really get good at music. I really have my heart set on this, I already have classes set up in January for taking Voice, Guitar, and Music Theory classes which from there...I don't know if I will still be at Tri-C, I will probably end up somewhere else for more music classes. But who knows, nothing is ever what you think. It is just the fact that I finally will have money and stuff to do the things I have been wanting to do and have a car to join these bands that I have been waiting to join. It will be awesome, time to play some guitar now, I am in the process of taking apart some of Trans-Siberian Orchestra's stuff and also learning the solo in Ride The Lightning which actually I am getting better at everytime I play it, there is just this one little lick in the solo that I am having a lot of trouble with, which if I play a million times it'll just come naturally. Well , yeah.

Mood: peaceful

Yeaaah..I figured I would give the new Taproot CD a good listen and see what I think of it. It is a little better then I expected. There are some really cool ideas on it and a couple parts that aren't all in 4, and then the harmonies are pretty in some songs and monotone yet perfect for the heavier stuff. A lot of the harmonies obviously take after those of Layne Staley and Jerry Cantrell considering, from what I know, Cantrell helped to produce this album. So basically, over all it's a cool cd for a once in awhile listen hah But yeah, today was pretty cool, sat around with Tony and Scott and through quite a couple really beautiful harmonies to some songs, a lot of fun. I am most likely going to their rock orchestra thing tonight with the high school orchestras to see how that turns out live. It should be very rocking. I also got to hear them play this morning and helped pick some stuff out and give it all a good listen. Alright, so yeah, time to go play some music stuffffffffffsss and do the sing. Larms.

Mood: groggy

Tonight sucked for the most part. Not because of anyone but myself in general. I was going out off of 2 hours of sleep last night and in a bad mood cause a lot of bad stuff was happening today and it basically rubbed off on me. So, I went out with Colin and hung out with these new people, but totally wasn't being myself and barely talking cause I wanted to sleep and in a poop shit mood. Like I am now. It's gay. I swear to god, I am more or less pissed at myself, I shouldn't be in a shitty upset mood for anything....oh well stuff happens. whatev. i suck sometimes, as do we all at times. im out, hopefully ill wake up and tomorrow will be a better day, i still need to find out what is going on with going to see mark wood up at the high school.

Mood: jubilant

I figured I should post something in here for everyone that doesn't read my online journal. Anyone that reads this post has to write a message that says something involving "a mask" "a lizard" "an apartment" and a couple dudes. Well no, but leave some comments and tell me how much you love andrew w.k. Hah, so I just popped in this Fishplank cd. Interesting. Especially this conversation before we play Can I Say live. Tony - "We are gonna play a few, our hit single in uh timbuktoo, the people in timbuktoo really enjoy this one......it's called Can I Say" Jeff - "Yes, this, yeah, it's called Can I Say, this last song" Tony - "Jeff, I just said that you fag" Jeff - "I know, shutup" it is so retarded when you know the words to that conversation. But yeah, I popped it in for once, this cd cause some bunches of people kept asking me tonight "So I heard Fishplank is getting back together, it's a rumor going around LHS" and im like what in the hell. Ok. So I guess, some kid actually saw me walk into Scott's house with a guitar and then Tony walking out with a bass. So, that means we are getting back together lol. Whatever, it would be cool to get something with Tony and Scott again sometime, cool guys and very fun to jam with and I know we could write good music, especially now, but who knows. Whateva, it's all good. For some reason I was confronted today by so many people about Fishplank and it didn't make any sense. So yeah, I have been hanging out with Scott jamming out tunes the past week, lot's of fun, we are putting togetjher a little set for Carly's spaghetti dinner party to show off our talents and our bling bling. It's nice. I think I am going to work on a new song tonight, just write something for the hell of it. I want to write so bad. So yeah, I am going to do that now. Pard.
