3:00 pm - I keep forgetting that I have this old thing.
It's still not as old as my old Tripod page at http://crashboy79.tripod.com LMFAO!!!!! Since 1999, and it's still up and shit. 

Jobs suck everywhere, I guess. Like gettin blood from a turnip. Well, that would be easier, because I'd just beat someone bloody with the turnip. Can't find a damn thang...can't a honky catch a break?

Who the fuck's gonna read this anyway? 

Shit, nobody.

9:13 am - Another long-time update.
I've obviously been neglecting LiveJournal for MySpace lately. It's just too much of a hassle keeping up with 3 blogs. Anyways, I'll give a brief synopsis about the events that have transpired since September.

1. In early November, Craig, Joey, and I grew weary of playing music in BSD, as well as Nick's rockstar attitude and getting nothing done, and we split. Now the 3 of us are in a band called Cities Burn Away, and we set up shop in my garage. We play a style that's heavily influenced by black metal, melodic death metal, metalcore, and crustcore punk. We recently released our debut EP called Shadows in the Scenery (that we recorded with Adam Bomb from skate-punk legends The Faction). In just over a week we had over 600 plays on our MySpace page, which is located at http://myspace.com/citiesburnaway on your internet browser. You can go to http://citiesburnaway.cjb.net to see our official page.

2. Subrina and I started a promotions company in October when we acquired a button press and punch. We call it Code Blue Promos, and we make buttons, flyers, do band photography, etc. Business has been slow. We recently completed an order for YourLocalScene.com and Donkey Punch Clothing.

3. I can't stop shaving my head...

4. Subrina and I are completely happy and content in each other's company, as well as being excited about the wedding. We're looking over ceremony sites right now.

5. It snowed the other day. There was seriously 3 inches of snow on my van. Some neighborhood kid made a snowman, but I never got a pic of it. Of course, it melted the next day because the temperature shot up to 50 degrees. Now it's nasty and wet. I wish it would dry up so that I could go post flyers everywhere.

That's really about it. I'm sure I'm forgetting something, but whatever. If you want (somewhat) more frequent updates, then check out my own MySpace page at: http://profiles.myspace.com/users/6912143

Sold my guitar amp today for $200, so now I'm looking to sell my Ampeg and upgrade bass amps to something at least 100 watts (my Ampeg is 50w, and the volume just isn't cutting it). I'm trying to sell my extra guitar for $100 so I'll be set like woah. Maybe if I look hard enough I'll be able to find a place that buys and sells used instruments in Vegas that I could use my guitar and Ampeg as a trade-in for a decent amp. We'll just hafta wait and see.

The computer sucks, because our cd drive has no driver. Booo........

Hmm....not much to say right now. Subrina cooked me a sweet dinner last night of Cornish Game Hens and seafood scampi pasta, and we dined by candlelight. It was one hell of an awesome evening, with many courses of dessert, and we went to bed quite happy.

The band I recently joined has opened a MySpace page. Go check it out HERE. BSD, soon to take over the universe, fucker! We hope to be ready to play a show by October 30. We'll see.

Gotta go, gonna play some bass.

The BBQ was awesome. Subrina's kebabs were insanely good, and the Newcastle-marinated dogs followed close behind. Tee showed up, along with Craig and Lauren, some of the guys from Stuck Naked, as well as Cirkus and Adam, and even Paul. The evening was quite fun, and everyone had a good time. Now we gotta get up early for band practice at noon, and Subrina's gonna get her septum pierced tomorrow. See ya later.

Getting ready for the BBQ tonight. We went shopping last night and got a huge pile of meat to be grilled, including hot dogs, hamburger meat, and even some nice cuts that Subrina is marinating for her famous kebabs. The hot dogs are marinating in Newcastle right now, and there is a massive store of Pringles and other chips. This is truly an event not to be missed. And tomorrow is BSD practice, as well. Not a bad weekend lined up, should everything turn out as expected.

The Waffles bit me in my sleep again. What a bastard.

3:25 pm - Dance with me...
TSOL just killed it last night. I haven't been in a good circle-pit in years, and I didn't plan to last night. But when they went into "Dance With Me" I just had to obey. It was fuckin' rad as hell. DI also played, and they ripped it up, too. Locally, The Loud Pipes and Absent Minded played. Absent Minded is awesome, for real, I like them a lot. The Loud Pipes...? Well, let's just say that the guitarists are talented, and they put on an energetic show. They could use a new singer and bass player, however. But I guess if it works, then it works. Fun fun show, however. Jack Grisham (TSOL singer) dumped water all over Subrina's mohawk and laughed like hell about it. We sat and talked with him after the show for like 10 minutes (he's gonna be on the cover of the next issue of Spooky). Really nice guy.

Trying to hook up with Craig so we can go over the songs before Sunday.

word.

After driving to every pawn joint in the city, I got me a bass amp, an Ampeg BA-112 50w 12" combo. It's pretty cool, sounds really good. The deal was too good to pass up. $150 at Super Pawn (it's $380 new). It has a line-out to plug into a pa for clubs that have one, and it's nice and compact. Has awesome tone. It'll do until I decide to upgrade to a disgustingly awesome bass stack. I might sell all my guitar gear besides one guitar and my 40w Crate combo if I need to eventually (since I plan on replacing it all with better stuff down the line) to get a fat stack. We'll see how it goes.

2:33 am - Why are you breathing MY oxygen?
I took Subrina to work, and we drove Raheel's (her brother's) old '97 Z28 so I could see if I could find what's wrong with it. Well, aside from the A/C not working, I discovered that it pulls to the right REAL hard, the transmission slips a lot, the driver's side power window is not functioning, yadda yadda. The best part is that during heavy accelleration, the torque arm (transmission brace) pops loose and thumps the underside of the tranny tunnel real hard, because the body flexes badly. This car has to have been wrecked several times in the last 2.5 years. It's just THRASHED. The body is all scratched up, and has several dents (even one the size of a grapefruit). I guess that's what happens when you get high all the time while driving a car that you're not really paying for (that's not in your name).

You're probably wondering "who cares about this fucking random car?"...well, I love cars, and I saw this car when he first got it, and I see it now. It's a goddamn shame the way some people treat cars.

My Couch is gonna whoop Lauren's ass.....maybe.

I'm giving Subrina bass lessons, and she's picking it up quite fast. After one lesson, she knows which strings are which notes (E-A-D-G), alternating up/down picking, and I taught her how to play the verse of Ptomaine's "October." She's digging it, because she's been wanting to learn bass for years.

I might be able to get a bass amp soon, I'm just waiting on word as to whether or not I'm in BSD for sure. If so, it's shopping time!

current mood: groggy

9:40 pm - Dear God...
What a harrowing last day! I spent all of Saturday trying to get some sleep, but failing miserably. I had maybe accomplished a 5-minute nap. Anyways, I was set to leave at 3am for Vegas, but the boys decided to meet up at Denny's. I figured that was a good idea, and decided to leave from there. After a long gathering with my nearest and dearest, we parted ways and I got on the road at 2:30am, with the aim of reaching Amarillo and checking status from there. I was sleepy when I left, but I pounded some coffee at Denny's and waited for it to kick in. I got to Amarillo by 8:30am after witnessing my last (for a possibly LONG time) Texas sunrise, and it was smooth sailing the whole way there. I stopped at McD's for a McMuffin (not Julio) and OJ, and continued on the way. From there, it was a hop, skip, and jump to the TX/NM border, and I made quick work of it. First tank of gas: 30 mpg. Sweet. Add another $28, and roll out. Got to Gallup, NM (where I had intended to stop for a rest originally) at like 3pm (TX time), and just kept going. I figured I'd see how I felt at Flagstaff, because it was too early to get a motel room. Well, at Flagstaff, I was pretty tired (it was around 6pm TX time) but I said "fuck it," and bought some energy drinks. I rolled into Kingman, AZ at 8:00pm TX time, gassed up, and bought more energy drinks. Finally got to the house at 10:05 pm Dallas time (8pm Vegas time), which adds up to 20 hours straight of driving non-stop. Well, lo and behold, nobody was here. After 4 more hours, I finally got in and got to sleep (after 36 hours), and was awoken 4 hours later by Subrina greeting me vigorously.

At any rate, I'm here now, and today was awesome. I jammed with Craig's band, and all went extremely well. I think they like me as a bass player, and their new music kicks a fat pile of ass. I think I can add a demension to them, both live and in writing, so hopefully it works out.

After the jam session, we lunched out HARDCORE STYLE at Joe's Crab Shack, where it was ascertained that Craig "hates" seafood and has never tasted lobster. He had a burger.

My car needs an oil change and a brake job, as well as the title transferred, insurance, and legal mumbo-jumbo. Job time!

G'bye.

Just got back from spending about 5 hours hanging out and jamming, as well as talking with Jon. I need to say this:

Jon,
I know you have a hard time understanding this, but eventually you'll realize that this is what's right for me. You're a brother to me, and I hope you can make it out for the wedding, because you're going to be my best man, and it wouldn't be the same without you. Take care of yourself, and keep Buckshot and RTF going, because both of them have an abundance of talent (that admittedly stems from the percussion section) and potential for greatness. I'm gonna miss you, bro. Take care, and we'll visit. Love you, brother. Peace.

12:05 am - *tick tick tick*
Almost done packing, just about ready to go. 28 hours till I roll out.

Visited with my mom, brother, and sisters tonight, had some fun. I'm about to go hang with Jon, and give him my other acoustic guitar, aswell as give him back Austin's Zinn Reader. I think Aussie still has my Darkest HOur and Alethian cds, but we'll have to make arrangements on those. No time. I'll be going to sleep in (hopefully) 12 hours, hoping to sleep until midnight, and leave this place at 3 or 4 am. Unfortunately, Luke won't be driving with me, which means it won't be a 17-hour trip, it'll be closer to 21-22 hours, driving the speed limit, and praying I don't get pulled over (expired tags, no insurance). I hope to make Gallup, NM by the time I stop for the night, which is almost 2/3 of the trip (the AZ/NM border). Mapquest says 13 hours to Gallup, then another 7 hours to Vegas. It's funny, because I'm starting just east of Dallas, and ending at the west end of Vegas. So it's a good 45 mins before I'm even out of my hometown, and the last 25-30 mins are going to be making my way across Vegas to home base. Almost an hour and a half of 20 or so hours is navigating hometowns. Funny, eh?

Ok, I'm outty like woah.

8:58 pm - Movin' on up!
Got the tires, got the amps in the trunk, suitcases are packed, books are almost all packed, the extra amp is still chilling, and the guitars are ready. As for the shoes....they'll come around. The clock is ticking.

I just ate a fucking PILE of Combination Fried Rice from Formosa Express, and I'm a bit (make that extremely fucking) stuffed at the moment. And this damn song I'm writing won't leave my head until it's finished, and I can't finish it yet. Woe is me.

I doubt I'll be able to leave in the morning, but we'll see.

current mood: working

11:30 pm - Howw does a man...
...get shitty drunk all alone.? I don't know, but I managed to. I sat in the bathtub reading Under the Black Flag by David Cordingly, and drank up the pack of Purple Passions that Muffins bought me a month ago. They were sittijng in my closet, and since I was all depressed and alone, figured I'd kill 'em off.

Fuck it, can't waitt to leave. There's nothing left for me here, except good memories, and man can't live on those, can he?

5:56 pm - LAME!
I was all set and excited to eat rice and tuna, but it turns out my Grandfather fed the tuna to the cats and ate the rice. This is similar to him hiring me to help him out with a lot of stuff, telling me he'll pay me $20,and when I'm done, he only gives me $10. What a jackass.

Spent most of the day cleaning and packing. I have a 50-lb bag of clothes and shoes that I'm giving to Goodwill. Yay! Karma points for me!

There's supposed to be a get-together in Denton tonight, but I'm awaiting a ride. I don't even have the dough to put tires on my car so I can leave the house. Lametastic!

And I'm fucking HUNGRY!

current mood: stressed

6:36 pm
Last night was cool. I went to a late dinner at Bennigan's with Josh York and Josh Miller, and we BS'e until they kicked us out. Unfortunately I left my 3/4 of a sandwich in Josh's car. Dammit, I really wanted to have that for lunch today. As a result, my lunch today was beef ramen noodles mixed with ranch-style beans, a fabulously ghetto fare that I wolfed down once I ascertained that it was indeed edible. Not great, but filling indeed.

My cash count sits at $110. I should be getting another $100 and change from my grandparents, and then I'll be well on my way back.

I talked to Craig today, he said I'm still free to try out for his band as a bassist. I can plug into their PA in the meantime, but I'd need to get an amp soon, if I were to be aceepted as a band member. Getting an amp shouldn't be too much of a problem. and I love playing with Craig, he's hella talented. We'll see how it goes.
