Tonight was fun... went out with Laura and Kevin to pub 340 and saw some pretty awesome bands. Seeing new world on fire was awesomwe; i hadn't seen them since Under the Volcano last year. I drank too much, lol...
I am so wasted, oh my. Current Mood: Emo

I FOUND A DRUMMER FOR STARING BACK.
GET READY BITCHES!
|Friday, November 18th, 2005|
So right now I am currently in Calgary with my best friend and his sister, getting drunk with their family.
This is just the vacation I need:-)
The show last night was tons of fun; it's too bad practically nobody showed up. Oh well, good times were had by all nonetheless.
I can't believe Belvedere is breaking up; I mean I'm so excited to see their last show, but I'm so choked they're breaking up. That band has been with me since I first started listening to punk; life won't be the same without them.... Oh well. I'll just carry on their style of punk with my band... I figure that will do them adequate justice.
Anyway I'm just rambling on right now.... Life is so fucking good right now. Current Mood: good

| PLAID RELIGION NEXT THURSDAY(17TH) AT THE BLARNEY STONE! BRING ALL YOUR FRIENDS!
*ahem* Anyway, Bad Religion was awesome last week; they
were almost biblical (excuse the delicious pun). Anti-Flag was
awesome as usual; they totally made me feel 14 and punkrock again (good
call on that one, Aleks). I missed Crowned King (what a shame).
I'm flying to Calgary next week to see Belvedere's last show
ever! I am so excited, and so sad at the same time.
Oh well; it'll be an absolute gong show.
I TOTALLY get to show off my sexy new bass next week; YESSSSSSSS
Except my flight to Calgary is at 10 AM the following morning.
Fuck. I've never been on a plane hung over before. I wonder
what it's like....
I called one of the possible drummers for Staring Back today; no response yet, but it'll happen.
so much going on, and no energy to type it all out; it'll happen sometime....
Current Mood: tired
*sigh* my ex is the supreme mind-fuck... rather annoying.

Warwick Corvette with case: $1250
Pack of strings: $36
Pack of picks: $4.50
Getting the bass of my dreams after 8 FUCKING YEARS: Priceless. Current Mood: ecstatic
|Saturday, November 5th, 2005|
I got the money today; I have $3000 in my cbecking account, another $3000 in a joint account with my dad, and very soon $13000 will be in an ING Direct savings account. YESSSSSS
South America is SO happening.
I bought F.E.A.R today... It's all over... lol
That game is way too addictive.
Anyway, I haven't(really) updated in a couple of days, so I'll be back later, maybe... depends on this game; lol Current Mood: cheerful

And you, I know you didn't have anything to do with the creation of the journal, but i am POSITIVE you knew about it, so fuck you too.
I am amazed that you two lied to me.
You know who you are.
Anybody who does something like that to me, then lies TO MY FACE about it is no friend of mine.
Fuck you both. Current Mood: disappointed

|6 Months Today.
Wow; today marks 6 months of me living on my own. Wow:) It's been a rather interesting ride; lots of peaks, lots of valleys. My old roomate, Joshy, moved out back to kelowna mid-october and Beau, one of my best friends, is moving in tonight. For no real reason in particular I am feeling stupidly happy; I just all of a sudden have such incredibly high hopes for the future. Nothing could bring me down right now.
FUCK YEAH!!!!! :-)
I now have enough songs for Staring Back to have a full set.
I'm most likely getting $6000 on saturday.
I've decided I AM going to South America sometime early next year.
I've found a drummer for Staring Back.
One of my best friends will officially live with me in approximately an hour and 45, give or take a few minutes:-P
I can get my next 3 tattoos with aforementioned money.
I can buy a new bass and a speaker cabinet and head.
I can also manage to save somewhere around $1000 if I spend carefully, and therefore have emergency money.
And in general...
I CAN DO THIS.
Life, that is. Current Mood: Beer, Happy, Music.
Damnit... I'm pretty sure that Mitko guy is a total fraud... That sucks... Oh well. I really need to stop using ellipses; it gets rather tiresome to read, I'm sure...
South America's been on my mind all day; I'm pretty sure I can pull it off. I have $18000 in GIC's courtesy of my late great-aunt and my late grandmother - god(or whatever entity there is out there, if any) bless them both - and on saturday I believe 1/3 of that is going to be given to me to spend however I please...
I could get a ticket with an open-ended return, formulate a loose plan and go down there, then come back when I'm running low on money. Anyway that's one plan; I'm sure i'll formulate more as time goes on... But I really think I can do this. I have a feeling it's just what I need to do; I obviously need to think on it a LOT more, but it's looking pretty good right now.
I've always wanted to go there... Everyone's so hyped on Europe, but personally I find South America alot more interesting... I need to find more literature based there. Speaking of which, I wonder where my Wade Davis books went... Everything about that place just intrigues me; the plant life, the wildlife, the lifestyle, the people, the history, everything. I bet picking up Spanish wouldn't even be that hard, since I speak fluent French. I dunno, maybe I'm wrong there, but whatever. I need to get out of safe, routine, normal North America and experience a completely different culture and lifestyle... steep myself in the World a bit. Having $6000 would definitely leave me capable of that.
Opinions? Current Mood: contemplative

Jeez Joss, thanks for totally re-kindling my ever-present desire to go to South America....
Funny thing is, I think I can do it... Current Mood: thoughtful
Hmm; other than my debt, life is pretty good right now. It's nice.
I downloaded System of a Down's and Killswitch Engage's discographies today; music is good.
Holy pointless entry batman.
Anyway I'm off to bed; I wonder what tomorrow's gonna bring... Current Mood: calm

Whoa, random. I put an ad up on a site called musolist.com; it's a big community of musicians... Anyhoo i put up a "drummer wanted" ad and i just got a message from a 29-year-old bulgarian dude named Mitko who just moved to Vancouver... He has 14 years of experience! I'm pretty stoked. So random though.... Hopefully it works out. Unfortunately he doesn't speak much English, but I guess we'll see what happens.

Work has been utterly exhausting this week; but I still love it at Savary. The atmosphere is great, the people are great, my boss is awesome.... I quite like that place.
I really want to get Staring Back up and running; not being able to play my own music is really starting to kill me... but I will persevere!!! When it does happen it will be oh so good. I'm also going to get the Fed-ups up and running rather soon, it seems; the Fed-ups are the next phase of Plaid Religion... We'll cover all the (modern)greats, i.e NOFX, Pennywise, Rancid, Anti-Flag, AFI, The Vandals, Bouncing Souls, etc. etc. and we'll switch instruments/members accordingly. So if we play Bouncing Souls songs, I'll give my bass to one of the guitarists and get on the mic, because they're a 4-piece but they have a singer. We'll do 3 songs by 4 different bands every night. Basically we'll be the ultimate punk show opening band... lol. That will be SO much fun! And it will hold me over until I can find a good drummer for Staring Back. *sigh* What I would do without music, I do not know....
You're out there, I know it; in fact I saw you not too long ago. Let me rephrase what I last posted...
I would so love to take you out on a date. Current Mood: Emo
Work was insane today. I got a whole lotta shit jobs done, and worked my ass off to close quickly. That combined with minimal sleep the night before really knocked me out. I have nothing to say, really.
I want to take you out on a date. Current Mood: exhausted

Where is innocence? Where there is will to begetting. And
for me, he who wants to create beyond himself has the purest will.
Where is beauty? Where I have to will
with all my will; where I want to love and perish, that an image may not merely remain an image.
Nietzche, you are my hero.
I didn't have internet for a day; I cried. Now I have the internet again and a brand spankin' new computer! I'm very happy.
Mostly. Current Mood: lonely
