      The Rumors Are True...

      7 years ago

      He Lives In Us Forever.

      RIP K

      Anyone who has talked to me knows that I love this band. Any chance I get to mention them I take, as they have always been under appreciated in my opinion. K was totally my inspiration for the music I'm writing right now. His passing is like it would be for a lot of guitar players if Eric Clapton died. I'm really saddened that this happened, and that I didn't find out until now. Please check out the Angelic Process if you have a minute. K's genius lives on in "Weighing Souls With Sand" an album that is certainly among the best I've ever heard.

      There is no point

      To this journal entry really. I just felt like writing.

      Things that are happening in my life:

      1. School vacation began today. I'm spending it visiting colleges and sitting on my ass.

      2. I have three songs done for my drone/post-rock/metal-ish project and about a million bits and pieces of songs. I can't tell what is more frustrating. The fact that I'm too lazy to record the songs, even though I think they are pretty good, or the little bits and pieces I can't make more songs out of.

      3. Is anyone else's May looking to be as crayzee as mine?

      4. I just watched August Rush. I give it a 6.8/10.

      5. I could have sworn I had more to write about.

      I have decided...

      7 years ago

      That I'm going to cover this song with live instruments.

      As far as music goes I'm getting organized. I've decided to start filing all the stuff I do that doesn't really fit anywhere under a collective name of Babylon Vines, because Special Pants wasn't really cutting it. Oddly enough, making that decision has made me write more random stuff, because now that I don't feeling like I'm straying from a path and the random stuff I write is actually for something, it feels less useless and more purposeful. I think it'll be fun to have stuff under this name running from post-rock to acoustic shit.

      My Angelic Process/Nadja project is actually moving along as well. I've written one whole song, which is impressive for me, and everyday I keep coming up with more and more riffs and ideas for songs. I'm going to try to record the song I have finished soon, although I'm going to be buying the Axiom 25 I was looking at a while ago to round out the sound. So until then it'll have to wait, but I promise you it's awesome.

      Also, Iz dat sum 3/4 and 5/4?

      New Song

      Yeah the title says it all.

      Give a listen, give a criticism, whatever. I'm just happy that for once I actually completed something, drums bass, guitar and all.

      Amazing what you can think of to do when you know you should be studying for midyears.

      Russian Battle Circles

      Gee, I wonder who I am ripping off this time? Not Battles and Russian Circles. No, never.

      I'm Impressed

      7 years ago

      A lot of you wrote good journals while I was gone.

      I read several of them, and commented on most. I rarely do that. Did you people all of a sudden get interesting while I was gone?

      Spent the weekend in Maine at my friend's cabin. It was a good time. Can't imagine anyone else I could have lived with for 4 days and not hated them by the end of it. We watched Superbad which was funny for about 3/4 of the movie. The last part was a wee bit disappointing. Great acting though, really solid characters and such. Saw my friend that I hadn't seen since October in Boston on the way back.

      Also I had the weird realization over the vacation. How fucking selfish can people be to deny wind farms because they look ugly? I mean really, my generation is going to have to deal with this shit, and they are concerned about how it's going to look. I know they don't generate a huge amount of power, but everything helps. I'm not trying to be inflammatory here (although I can't imagine many of you are Pro-Global warming) just stating my opinion.

      I'm doing a bad thing.

      I'm breaking up with my girlfriend.

      This part is da pits. Especially when you don't dislike the person at all. I really love this girl as a friend but as a girlfriend it just hasn't worked.

      UGHGHUGHG.

      Getting all squee on you. Sorry.

      My thought process

      7 years ago

      While reading a Musician's Friend catalog:

      Ooo, things on sale that I don't need but could possibly use. I want 3 of each.
      Oh my god, Gibson Les Paul's are so pretty but...
      ....Let's be honest, you can really only afford these Epiphones
      Fenders are for faggots
      Why do they put the Ibanez guitars at the end?
      Wow, never heard of these guitar brands.
      Oh my god Pedals
      Pedals
      Pedals
      Can't afford pedals.
      Can't afford a new acoustic flipflipflipflipflipflipflipflipflipflipflipflipflipflip
      Oh shit hold on
      mmmmmm Ovations
      flipflipflipflipflipflipflipflipflipflipflipbassguitarsflipflipflipflipflipflipflipflip
      Hello Kitty guitar straps, really?
      I wish I could play the cello
      When did drum kits get so expensive?
      Jesus my drum kit is a piece of shit.
      Some day I will buy that double pedal. Keep telling yourself.
      Who reads these last 50 pages anyway?

      Not sure why I wrote that but there you go.

      Also, how have I missed out on Hella for so long?

      Despite the rushed tempo, still a win song. Good stuff.

    Used to have personal information here, but then that SurferGirl guy thing happened. Don't rape me, please.

    Buy me one of these and I might just love you forever. Or just make you a home cooked meal.

      Hey, even if you aren't really on the website anymore, get on aim or something at some point and talk to me so we can catch up.

      Hope everything's good on your end.

      P.S. - This Jaga Jazzist song is fucking great. Thank you.

      Well, we'll be going only if we can find someone who'll let us crash at their place for a night. Hotels are just too expensive.

      I don't have to leave until 10:30, so if you can somehow manage to get there like right before then I can pop in and be all "HAY" and go.

      Thank you for the support though. I'm sure it'll be fine. I just wish I didn't have to worry about music composition and screenwriting on top of it (I have important things involving both due Thursday). :|
