6:33 pm - I was such a stupid kid...
Hey what's up. It's been awhile. Anyways, been real busy lately. One more final then I'm a senior... weird. Anyways, I been studying and all so it's been no fun and all. Hopefully I'll get some $ this summer and it'll all be good. Anyways, it's been SUCH an emo week, pretty weird and all. The music scene is not bad but some things suck. The K-Rockathon usually has good bands, but this year is like the Hot-Topicathon as Ben calls it. It has Papa Roach, Staind, Nonpoint, Crazy Town, Taproot and a few others. So bad, K-Rock sucks so bad, they used to be so good.... Anyways, we're gonna go see Rival Schools on Wednesday, see who they are how they are, promote the shit out of it, ya know. Should be fun. July 6 is soooo up in the air, 3 things going on that night: Vagrant Tour, Living End, and Hellfest. Hellfest is of course the biggest hardcore festival and Thursday will be there but I don't think I'll end up going. The Vagrant Tour is in Rochester but has Anniversary and their awesome moog sound, Dashboard and his awesome acoustic paraphenalia, Saves the Day and their awesome band, and Hot Rod Circuittttttttttttt. It looks awesome but I doubt we'll go. Probly end up seeing Living End, which should be a kickass show anyways.
Musically, not much has happened lately. I'm kinda stuck creatively, and without a tabbing program I can't write down what I'm doing so Ben can hear. Oh well. I'm just tryin to get the fundamentals down so I can be good. Oh, and we still need the other half of the band. But it's goin ok, maybe we can get started soon. Well, I'm off to see the wizard, later.

10:19 pm - Sleep with all the lights on
Things are lookin on the upside%3. I started taking lessons today and I caught on pretty quick so hopefully that will go well%3. We need a bassist. We need hot chicks to make us wanna write emo. But i can kick ass at power chords I think and ben is awesome and so if we can get some others, we have decent connections and all%3. We got places to record, it'd be rad. Well I'm tired bye, check out my poem at http://loschicos.virtualave.net/poem.html

12:45 am - Back with the attack and a little Click Click Boomage
Hey I went to Ben's house today and we may have made a song. I had a little song that I made messing around when my mom was in the hospital and we played around with it and Ben made another guitar part for it and all. I thought it sounds pretty cool, though we still have to finish writing it, but hopefully it's a sign of good things to come!

12:55 pm - OWW!! Rockin' it at the Wild Rose!
Sum 41 show was awesome I had a blast! We did our little Island Street Team promotion and hung up posters inside the lost before the show and I spotted Deryck, the lead singer, so we walked over there and talked to them. I asked them if they liked hockey (since they're from Canada) but they said they know nothing about hockey so that kinda put us in an awkward spot but they were cool and all and signed our posters it as fun. I told them Outback has goos steak and they took my advice and went there. We met the merch guys, Chris and Ben (ironically) and Chris first worked for Diesel Boy, who me and Ben lov, and then GOB and now sells for Sum. We handed out tons of stuff and it as so much fun. The bands were awesome too, except Shades Apart seemed a little out of their element, but that's ok. It was fun and inspirational.

current mood: jubilant

11:35 pm - Rain rain go away
School tomorrow, blows. I like Ultimate Fakebook (random comment). http://loschicos.virtualave.net/sanchezenvy-plutonic.mp3 rip them off. Please. Anyways, so I wrote one song called "Four Eyes Surprize" (don't ask). I really doesn't have anything to do with my life or experiences but it sounded cool and I think it would make a nifty song. I got a couple ideas for songs, but me and Ben never get anything done and now he has my distortion pedal. We'll see if this ever goes anywhere but I'd love to have a band someday. Anyways, I try so hard and life kicks me in the ass, I wish I knew why.

11:15 pm - I think I think I know it all
Things have been blowin ass lately. The prom was a lot of fun, got to hang out with a lot of my friends and Michelle :) and then we went to Darien Lake the next day. That was a lot of fun and the weekend kicked mega-ass. Then Monday shit went downhill, my mom had a mild heart attack and my week just totally sucked ass. I did bad on a history test and it's been hard as hell getting by and all but I guess its starting to get better. Went to the Westcott Friday which was a LOT of fun got to hang out with many cool people and found a new cool activity. Nothin' else really happened, just takin care of mom and tryin to get in shape and all, gotta do a History and Religion paper, oh well. Only like 2-3 more weeks and the year will be over finally. I need a job. I need a girlfriend. I need to find a girl who is not always busy and will hang out with me. I need a girl who really likes me for me that is not alwyas busy and will hang out with me. Oh well, I keep tryin but life ain't buyin' and I can't wait till summer so I can just whine about it all day. Anyways, we're promoting the Sum41 show on Friday which should kick major assketball and we can finally lose those tapes and maybe meet the band that would rock the party that rocks the body. Ah, life is hard. Later.

11:35 pm - Naughty Naughty You'll Get Caughty!
Hey what's goin on? This prom business is soo tricky, it's comin down to the wire and we're still not EXACTLY sure of all the plans. I won't go into details because I'm so sick of this damn gibberish, but basically, we got a limo, a place to eat, and the prom but we're not sure what we're doin after. Whatever. I'll be soo glad when its all over and we go to Darien Lake. I just want this to be a really great night. You can never really grasp how important you are to someone. I've kinda learned that recently, and I mean I guess I'm sayin' that Michelle is special to me and I guess I'm just a geek and all and I never really show it and blah blah blah enough whining. I just want the night to be special and all because she's special to me is what I'm saying? Who knows exactly what I'm saying these days. The things that come out of my mouth... Anyways, I got a couple more words down, a couple possible songs, we can work with it. I hate school. However I really like English and Amnesty. I hope I can get somewhere with music someday because life is iffy right now. Anyways, enough for one day, GO AVALANCHE GO!

Everyone has to check out Lobster Magnet its the best thing ever made. You'll have to find it on your own or email me at newjack@twcny.rr.com to ask where it is. Ah, I love that thing. I can play 2 Benjamis songs, Analog Boy by RX Bandits, Threesome, and a bunch more, transitions are really comin along, and now that I have cracked the guitar codes, we look to be well on our way. RABBIT MADE OF STEEL, LOBSTER HAS A BEAK! OWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!

6:50 pm - My little drummer boy pa rum pum pum pum
We might have a new song MAN! OWWWWW! Enough of that for one day. I have a penguin on my arm. I put a penguin that Tues drew in art on my card to BroEd. It was beautiful. We are like obsessed with penguins I swear, it must be the black and white contrast that turns me on just kidding. Cindy is being a total dillhole once again, she gave ben 2 more referrals, and she has yet to write one up without a spelling mistake. I made a sample of how she writes and you can view it at http://www.defcap.com/cindysucks.jpg The bitch writes that ben LOOKED at her so she was disturbed. She's disturbed WITHOUT him even looking at her, but thats another story... wait this IS the story. Anyways, the second one was about ben yelling, when he never yelled and more lies and bullshit. I'm gonna put some direct quotes up here soon to show the ludicrous BS nature of these referrals. Anywaysssssssssss, this guitar stuff is gettin better for me, I may finally understand, and I am like obsessed with the song on the bottom. I'm still sore from getting beat on at H2O but it was def. worth it. Well I don't feel like typing anymore even though I'll probly be online for like 4 more hours but shhhhhh! I don't like school and I need a job. Until later, frozen pet shop.

8:57 pm - I'm a Twenty-First Century Digital Boy
I'm bored so I'm posting. Um.. working on learning Smooth Criminal, drop tuning, and my power chords. No new music. It's all good. Time for random thoughts. Why does Tuesday get so dam lucky?! I mean, he was goin for the totally emo ending of "Kid does not go to prom after all" and then his mom gets him a date with a hot CNS cheerleader? World works in bullshit ways let me tell you. Not that there's a thing wrong with Michelle, she's pretty and smart and awesome, but it just strikes me the way Tues got all the sudden hooked up with a popular hot cheerleader. Ah, livin la vida emo.

1:21 pm - God I Wish I Do This For the Rest of My...
WE WENT TO HOOTERS FRIDAY!!! WOOHOOO!!! Nice asses all around, it is a man's heaven!!! We are making it at LEAST a monthly tradition to go there!
Yeah, so we hit the Cooter, Midtown and H20 show and all I can say is wow, they tore the place down! Cooter played all their awesome songs, and we refuse to call them "Autopilot Off". Midtown was great too, I love "Just Rock and Roll" and they had some other great songs too, and they were really on last night. H20 was by far the best performance. They got the crowd pumped and played such an intense aggressive show that had everyone rockin'. OWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Me and Ben never really got mixed up in the mosh pit before but we did last night and it kicked the biggest arse in a long time. We really whooped a horse's ass and I got right up to the front. I even brought back the high fives and gave one to the bassist from H2O. The crowd was so awesome and supportive of the bands, which made this show so totally kickass. The key to a good show is definitely audience participation, and there was tons last night. I got this cool green H2O shirt that says H2O 2001 Worldwide and we got so much free stuff, like a Corporate Avenger TAPE (hey, it was free), a CD sampler from drive thru records (which rulez) and like 20 stickers of bands like NFG, the BUNJAMINS, Midtown, and others. All in all, I think we all ripped off Lost Horizon because this show was worth so much more than 10 bucks. But hey, I ain't complaining. Anyways, this was a huge inspiration, and one of the best nights I've had in a while, and I really needed it after all these damned tests. Musically, we still haven't made any real progress, but we need a drummer and bassist, so I mean, hopefully things will progress soon. Can't wait for Juliana Theory and Showoff on the 30th! ROCK AND ROLL BAYBEEE!!! OWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!! PUNK ROCK MAN!!!!!!! OWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!

5:25 pm - Oooooooooooh No News
Well I can play my part for one of the 2 (Yes, 2!) songs that ben has worked on. They both seem pretty cool, but I can't do too much right now cuz I have to study for this totally uncool AP American History test. We did practice multiple choice today and I got soooooo many wrong, even Tuesday got half of em wrong. This is gonna blow, big time, I can just feel it. I wish I had more time and all, but that seems to be my argument throughout life so I will deal. No new lyrics, I've been up to my neck with studying and this prom BS. Why am I going to the prom I don't know. Maybe I'll figure it out, how come Tuesday gets to be the ideal emo kid and not me, dangit! Not that I don't like Michelle a lot, but its so confusing and all and at this point I just wanna get it over with. I'd rather just hang out somewhere with her, thats just the kind of person I am I guess. I hate conventional clothes and events that confine me, I feel all stuffy and I can't wait to get done with it. However, she's always busy so this is my only chance to hang out with her, I guess? Anyways, free limo and tux! But I just wish I could be me, not dressed up and all. But oh well, it'll be over in a week and all, and we'll see what happens. After Friday my life will be normal maybe and it'll all be good. Music is coming and all, I hope we become something... Anyways I spent way too long and I better study, so pizzout.

Well, not much to report, just chillin and studying for AP American History test Friday and listening to Stevie Ray Vaughan, H20, Midtown, Cooter, Saves the Day, Shades Apart, Boxcar, and a bunch of others. Not much real progress today, actually Ben came up with some new ideas for the song, so I'm gonna go o his house and check it out to see how it goes but if it all goes well it could ossibly be a kickass song. Well, till later, wish me luck.

current mood: lethargic

Well, we might actually have a song! Ben's working on writing a melody, it sounds pretty rad right now, looks like a winner to me. But we still gotta do lyrics and do work on it but hopefully we'll get stuff goin pretty soon that would whoop a llama's ass with a belt.

current mood: horny
